The latest season of “Warzone” may be just a few weeks away.
The increasingly popular Battle Royale game mode is deep in Season 4, which already includes several grain and updates to better balance weapons and gameplay. Along with the return of Blood Money, a new contract (Supply Run) was introduced, along with other Battle Royale game modes that appear intermittently throughout the season.
But just like online gaming, a new season for Warzone seems to be just around the corner. On July 20, Infinity Ward Twitch streamer NICKMERCS sent a short teaser video featuring a train, which could signal a major change for the mode.

Here’s what you need to know about Warzone’s upcoming season:
Warzone Season 5 release date
The folks at Infinity Ward shared a short teaser with the popular Twitch streamer NICKMERCS, with the video popping up on Monday and possibly revealing a date on Wednesday, August 5. That date was confirmed on July 30 with a new trailer for the upcoming season, with a new faction to play as.
Warzone Season 5 rumors
The biggest rumor for Warzone’s newest season is the inclusion of a train that can circle the perimeter of Verdansk. While details about entering or securing the train are scarce, some reports have indicated that the train will drive across the map and be filled with loot.
The video shared by NICKMERCS appears to confirm the existence or future implementation of the train.
In addition, Season 5 includes more of the following:
- New loot drops;
- New weapons, including the SPAS-12 and a new sniper rifle
- New game modes (a return of Juggernaut mode and a faster battle royale are two of the rumors of additions).
New Warzone map
At this time, it is unclear whether an entirely new map will be added to the Warzone game mode or whether there will be changes to the existing map of Verdansk.
In July, data miners have exposed four “zones” that seem to be a whole new one, Cold War themed map for Warzone. Given Easter eggs in recent seasons – nuclear bunkers, one of which houses a nuclear weapon – alludes to the Cold War theme, Russian focus on the new map could mean it will come sooner than later.
Some other rumors indicate that there may be changes to the already existing map of Verdansk, which may see changes similar to those of Fortnite and its map: a “live” map, with changes in the surrounding area while the map layout out remains the same. Other rumors of changes include opening the interior of the stadium, which is in the center of the map, and the water on the Dam flowing and thawing.
