When is Modern Warfare 2 Season 5 Reloaded? That's one question on the minds of players turning their attention to the next seasonal update for Modern Warfare 2. Although attention is turning towards the launch of Modern Warfare 3, there are still a few months of the current cycle remaining.

Along with new content, another dose of buffs and nerfs could change the best guns and weapons to use.
