Latest Update - September 28, 2022

The Warzone Season 5 Reloaded update is still on course for its September 28 launch.

Scroll down to find the exact time it goes live.

With the Pacific era coming to an end, players are on the hunt for the Warzone Season 5 Reloaded update start time. The mid-season update is the final update for the first version of the battle royale and many are hoping Raven Software gives Caldera a proper send-off.

Just like previous mid-season updates, Season 5 Reloaded contains a small amount of content that will keep fans ticking over until the launch of Warzone 2. Although it's a small amount of content, the arrival of new guns to the arsenal has the potential to shake up the existing meta.

Warzone Season 5 Reloaded start time countdown

Warzone Season 5 Reloaded


Based on previous updates, we expect the Season 5 Reloaded update to launch at 5PM GMT. The update will launch alongside Vanguard's Season 5 Reloaded update on September 28.

Thanks to Sony's exclusivity deal, there's a high chance some players can preload the update ahead of time. This enables them to jump straight into the action as soon as the clock strikes five.

How to preload the Warzone Season 5 Reloaded update

If the option to preload the Season 5 Reloaded update does appear, PlayStation users should receive a notification once the update starts downloading automatically. If not, highlight the game tile, press Start then select "Check for Update." This should trigger the download and the update will begin.

Warzone Season 5 Reloaded content

In comparison to previous mid-season updates, there's plenty of new content making its way to the battle royale. Here's a brief overview of the new items players can get their hands on before dropping onto Caldera, Fortune's Keep, and Rebirth Island:

  • BP50 assault rifle
  • Lienna 57 LMG
  • New and returning LTMs
  • Rorke Operator
  • Seraph Operator

Alongside all of the brand-new content listed above, there's a very high chance Raven Software applies a much-needed dose of weapon balancing in a bid to stop the dominance of the Vanguard PPSH and the UGM-8 LMG.

That's all there is to know about the Warzone Season 5 Reloaded update release time. Once we hear official confirmation from Activision, we will update the guide with all the intel you need to know so you can drop into the action as fast as possible.
