Season 5’s update to “Call of Duty: Warzone” is arguably the game’s most significant change to date, with changes to the core map and added weapons.
While it remains unclear whether the weapon balance will change again after the patch download, particularly with regard to the MK9 Bruen and FAL, players will certainly be forced to rethink their tactical approach to the Verdansk world.
As usual, Activision will release its update at a time when it expects fewer users than usual to be online in an effort to minimize disruption to its crazy fan base.
Here’s what you need to know about the timing of the season 5 drop, as well as the key details of the new look “Warzone”:
What is the release time for ‘Warzone’ season 5?

Does Activision have the MK9 Bruen grain?
There have been no announcements yet about the MK9 Bruen, which has recently been a choice of “Warzone” masses or other weapons. However, it’s likely that across the board adjustments will be made to weapons, taking into account changes made to previous season’s releases.
