UPDATE - August 2nd - TEC-9 Pistol Leaked

A leaker has managed to uncover one of the new weapons expected to arrive in Season 5. The TEC-9 is extremely familiar to Counter-Strike players as it is often considered to be one of the best pistols in the game.

Now it's coming to Warzone, there's every chance that the pistol could dominate the close-quarters metagame.

Over the course of the Black Ops Cold War era of Warzone, we've seen the additions of new tactical rifles, assault rifles, submachine guns, and even a Nail Gun. Although no official intel has been unveiled surrounding the new weapons, we may see a brand-new shotgun or another sniper added into the ever-expanding arsenal.

What's Included In The Season 5 Battle Pass?

As we patiently wait for more teasers and trailers, it's currently unclear as to what will be included in the Season 5 Battle Pass. We can expect the usual dose of brand-new weapon blueprints and Operator skins and based on the leaked Operator codenames, there's every chance that there could be a Japanese theme to the content.

Season 4 Outro Unveiled

When the Season 4 Battle Pass comes to an end, we can get a solid idea as to when Season 5 will begin. The current Battle Pass is set to run until August 11th, approximately two months after Season 4 launched.

We can assume that Season 5 of Warzone will begin on August 12th.

Warzone Season 5 Leaks

So far, there have been no leaks suggesting what kind of brand-new content will be making its way to Verdansk and Rebirth Island in Season 5.

Considering that we are moving towards the reveal window for Call of Duty: WWII Vanguard, there is every chance that the upcoming release plays a huge role during Season 5.

COD: Vanguard Reveal Event

Just like Black Ops Cold War, it's widely believed that Vanguard will be revealed through Warzone, meaning the likelihood of an in-game reveal event is extremely high.

There have already been several clues pointing towards a reveal event taking place within the files of the game, so Season 5 could well be the season where Warzone plays host to the very first look at Vanguard.

Weapon Balancing

In the Season 4 patch notes, Raven Software outlined plans to increase the time to kill across the board. With these changes expected to take place during Season 4, Season 5 could well feature another wave of weapon balancing, depending on the success of the changes.

Could this destabilise the existing meta? We will have to wait and see.
