PlayStation

PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players will be able to download the update a few days prior to its launch. To ensure it downloads as quickly as possible, make sure that there are no applications running in the background to ensure a fast download speed. Another handy trick involves placing the console into Rest Mode.

Before beginning the download, make sure your internet connection is secure and the signal is good. For the best possible speeds, plug an ethernet cable into the back of the console to guarantee an uninterrupted download.

Xbox

To begin the Season 5 Reloaded download, head to the 'Games & Apps' menu and select 'Updates.' This is where the updates for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War should appear. Like the PlayStation download, the best way to guarantee the download completes quickly is to create a wired internet connection.

To make sure that the updates begin automatically, check the 'Updates' tab in the system settings and select the 'Keep my games & apps up to date.'

PC

Warzone updates on PC usually take up plenty of space as they often require temporary copying room so before you begin the download, double-check there's enough room on the hard drive. Run an internet speed test to make sure speeds are as fast as they can be.

Follow these tips and the Season 5 Reloaded update will download in the blink of an eye. For more Warzone intel, check out everything you need to know about the upcoming update in our dedicated hub.
