Developers Raven Software have confirmed all the big updates being made as part of the Call of Duty Warzone Season 5 release.
This included a full rundown listed in the Warzone patch notes, including how Verdansk would be changes over the coming weeks.
Mobile Broadcast Stations will be appearing as new Points of Interest across the map but not at fixed positions. Instead, these will be set randomly each match, making that much harder to find.
A message from Raven explains that they might play a much bigger role during the season, telling fans: “These POIs can be found in a variety of locations in Verdansk, differing from match-to-match to keep one area from being signal boosted by the rewards they offer.
“See what they’re all about by going closer to them, but be sure to keep your head and tune out the broadcast each one emits.
“Beware of the Red Doors sending you to unexpected locations other than the main room. This may have something to do with those Mobile Broadcast Stations seen around Verdansk.
“[[REDACTED]] has gone off-grid, and reports suggest [[REDACTED]] is doing [[REDACTED]] in Verdansk – what, we do not know. This is an unauthorized [[REDACTED]] that could jeopardize our [[REDACTED]] in discovering and stopping Stitch.”
Meanwhile, the Gulag is being replaced with a new level based on the classic Black Ops II map, with the layout comprised of the main speedball arena.
Today’s Warzone Season 5 release date will also include a small number of weapon changes that will largely go unnoticed.
Unlike older patches, Raven has only made some small tweaks, while also adding new weapons to the roster.
According to the patch notes, two new weapons unlock challenges are also going live on August 13, including for the MG 82: Light Machine Gun, and the C58: Assault Rifle.
