Call of Duty: Warzone continues the staple features introduced in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with full support for cross play in the game between PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Players can play up with any of their friends across all platforms similar to Modern Warfare. And similar to Modern Warfare, for those looking to jump into Warzone without owning Modern Warfare, you will need an Activision ID and account in order to play as that’s how cross play works in the Call of Duty franchise.

Players who own Modern Warfare and play Warzone will be in the same matchmaking pool as those who are free to play Warzone owners – there’s no separation, Infinity Ward confirmed to us during our studio visit.

We have extensive details on Call of Duty: Warzone on our site. Please check the Call of Duty: Warzone page here to see the latest news.

Warzone Cold War Season 5 Weapons

The Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season 5 roadmap revealed all of the new weapons that Call of Duty players will be able to get their hands on soon.

Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 4 brought some extremely powerful weapons to the mix, such as the C58 Assault Rifle and Nail Gun. Season 5 has finally been revealed, and it will be bringing a new arsenal of weapons for players to use in battle.

The leaked Season 5 artwork revealed the TEC-9 Pistol would be coming to Call of Duty for the first time, but all of the other Warzone and Cold War Season 5 weapons were revealed in the official roadmap for the new period of content for both games, so here they are all.

TEC-9

Fans first spotted the TEC-9 Pistol when the key art for Warzone and Cold War Season 5 was leaked. The brand-new Operator was seen wielding the automatic pistol Akimbo in both the artwork and the teaser trailer.

The Tec-9 was then officially confirmed in the Season 5 announcement blog post, and according to its official description, it is a “Semi-auto submachine gun. Improved accuracy from longer ranges with low recoil and slower fire rate. Good damage output with moderate range.”

Marshal

The Marshal secondary weapon was spotted in the Season 5 cinematic being used by Woods and was then confirmed to be one of the Warzone and Cold War Season 5 weapons in the roadmap announcement.

According to its official description, it is a “break action pistol. Hand loaded double barrel pistol fires 12-gauge shells. Excellent damage at close range with a 1-shot kill potential.”

It is also the predecessor of a more futuristic version that was seen in Black Ops III.

EM2

EM2 Assault Rifle

Reddit user Vengance183 spotted what appears to be the British EM-1 in the Season 5 cinematic. This was an experimental weapon from the 1940s and was considered high-tech for its day.

One of the Warzone and Cold War Season 5 weapons is carried by Woods’ mysterious new squad member, and we get a good view when he drops it after using it as a club. Vengance183 paused the cinematic here, and we can see that it bears a striking resemblance to the EM-1 Rifle.

However, the Season 5 announcement blog post confirmed that this weapon is actually the EM2 Assault Rifle that is described as a “full-auto assault rifle. Well-rounded British rifle with good firing control. Built in low-zoom optic improves accuracy. Slower fire rate with reliable range.”

Cane

The final member of the Warzone and Cold War Season 5 weapons is the Cane melee weapon which will offer a new way for players to get up close and personal with their enemies in the new period of content for the popular games.

And that’s all the new weapons Black Ops Cold War players have spotted in the Season 5 cinematic! We expect a roadmap soon, and then we’ll get official confirmation of all of the new season’s upcoming weapons.

New Warzone Combat Scout & Tempered perks coming in Season 5

Season 5 of Warzone will see the new Combat Scout and Tempered perks become available for players to use, and we have all of the details covered.

New Warzone Combat Scout Tempered Perks

Perks are a cornerstone of the Call of Duty: Warzone experience but have not undergone any major changes since the game’s release. However, Season 5 of Warzone will see the new Combat Scout and Tempered perks make their arrival in the Call of Duty battle royale.

Perks are essential for success in Call of Duty: Warzone as they provide you with beneficial bonuses that can be the difference between losing or winning.

However, the perks for the battle royale have not undergone any major changes. The same ones have dominated the meta throughout the life of Warzone, causing players to call for a major rework of the perk system.

However, Season 5 will be making a big change to the perk system in the Call of Duty battle royale with the arrival of the new Combat Scout and Tempered perks, bringing new gameplay opportunities for players to experience, and we have everything you need to know about them covered.

Combat Scout Perk

The first of the new perks is called Combat Scout, and this one provides a treasure trove of information to players when they damage an enemy.

Players who have the Combat Scout perk equipped will cause an enemy they damage to be highlighted in orange briefly and automatically be pinged.

Players who use the Combat Scout perk will ensure they know where enemies they have damaged are going and can avoid getting ambushed when rushing after them to finish the kill.

Tempered Perk

Armor is another staple of the Call of Duty battle royale, and the new Tempered perk will make some dramatic changes to armor values in Warzone.

Players who have the Tempered perk equipped will see that their armor plates will be able to absorb 75 points of damage instead of the standard 50, which means players will only need two plates of armor to be full health and will be able to heal faster and get back into fights quicker.

New Warzone Combat Scout Tempered Perks

However, players who use the Tempered perk will only be able to have two armor plates equipped at one time and will have to dedicate their perk 2 slot to Tempered to take advantage of its armor reinforcement bonus.

There is no doubt that the arrival of the new Warzone Combat Scout and Tempered perks will make some exciting changes to the meta in the Call of Duty battle royale during Season 5.

Warzone August 5 update patch notes: Krig 6 & CX-9 changes

In a surprise Warzone update on August 5, Raven Software made significant changes to the popular Krig 6 and brand-new CX-9 SMG.

Warzone Krig 6 nerfed

Raven Software has released a new Game Settings Update for Call of Duty: Warzone on August 5. This new Game Settings update brings a small number of changes.

The Krig 6 has been the most dominant and popular weapon since Warzone Season 4 Reloaded, but the August 5 update is set to change that.

The new update brings a significant nerf to Black Ops Cold War’s Krig 6, as well as Modern Warfare’s newly released CX-9 SMG.

Warzone Krig 6 nerfed & CX-9 buffed

Although we’re fast approaching August 12’s Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 5, Raven Software has treated fans to two surprise updates this week. First, the long-awaited CX-9 and the Soap Operator bundle finally arrived, and now Raven has released a small, but likely meta-changing, balance update.

In this surprise update, the Krig 6 received an impactful nerf. This weapon was known for its extremely high accuracy and ability to dominate at range. While it still remains as accurate as before, its Lower Torso Multiplier and Maximum Damage Range have been hit.

The Krig 6 will still be able to melt enemies at medium range, but it’ll likely struggle in those long-distance engagements. The C58 Assault Rifle has been a close 2nd place in terms of effectiveness, so it could become the meta once again.

And another surprising tweak, the CX-9 has been buffed. Both its mid damage range and Headshot multiplier have been increased, so the CX-9’s place appears to have been solidified as more of a long-range SMG, that’ll be perfect to pair with Sniper Rifles.

You can check out the exact values below.

Warzone August 5 Update Patch Notes

Krig 6 Warzone Season 4
  • Krig 6 (BOCW)
    • Lower Torso Multiplier decreased from 1.1 to 1
    • Maximum Damage Range decreased from 1500 to 1400
  • CX-9 (MW)
    • Increased mid damage range from 20 to 21
    • Increased Headshot Multiplier from 1.4 to 1.45
