August 28, 2023: Season 5 Reloaded is on the horizon. Find all there is to know about the mid-season update in our guide.

With Season 5 of Warzone nearing the halfway stage, attention is starting to turn towards the Warzone Season 5 Reloaded release date. Typically, a Reloaded update for Call of Duty's battle royale contains less content than other seasonal updates, but this time around, it's worth getting excited about Warzone Season 5 Reloaded.

The next update will drop plenty of content ranging from new weapons to another dose of buffs and nerfs likely to spark another change in the meta. Perhaps the update will contain intel on another double XP event.

Before we reveal all the Warzone Season 5 Reloaded intel, take a look at our other guides showcasing the best AR and the best ISO 45 loadout perfect for close-quarters action.

When is Warzone Season 5 Reloaded?

Based on when Season 5 started, Warzone Season 5 Reloaded will commence on August 30, 2023.

Warzone Season 5 Reloaded content

Typically, Reloaded updates don't contain a lot of new additions but for Season 5 Reloaded, there's a lot on its way to Warzone. Here's a closer look:

New weapons

According to the Season 5 roadmap, two new weapons are on their way in Season 5 Reloaded. Players will have the ability to get their hands on a new pistol along with a new SMG that heavily resembles a suppressed MP5 from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Here's the full list of weaponry:

  • Lachmann Shroud (SMG)
  • 9mm Daemon (Pistol)
  • Pickaxe (Melee)

New Operators

Following the launch of Nicki Minaj, the mid-season update contains two new Operators to unlock or purchase. The first is rapper 21 Savage who drops into the action as part of the 50th anniversary of hip-hop collaboration.

The second is Mace, a fan-favourite Operator who first appeared in 2019's Modern Warfare 2.

New game modes

Two new game modes are arriving as part of the Warzone Season 5 Reloaded update. The first is Fort Resurgence, a small section of Al Mazrah aiming to promote fast gameplay and lots of action around Al Bagra Fortress.


The second is Armored Royale. Two teams must defend their MRAP vehicle from the opposition. Defend it by purchasing upgrades in order to keep redeploying into the action.
