The Call of Duty Season 5: Last Stand Mid-Season Update “Reloaded” is just around the corner, and this will be the final seasonal update for Vanguard and Warzone Pacific. New weapons and operators are scheduled to arrive, so here’s everything we know so far about the big update.
Call of Duty Season 5 Reloaded Start Times
Call of Duty Reloaded Season Updates usually come midway through the season, and a Sledgehammer Games tweet confirms that the Vanguard console update will be available for download on September 28. The tweet also mentions that the PC update will be held until a later date as the developer works to investigate a crash issue. Warzone updates typically follow the day after Vanguard updates, so they’ll likely be available for download on September 29. These updates are usually released around 9am PT / 12pm ET / 5pm BST.
What to expect from season 5 reloaded
Call of Duty “Reloaded” updates typically bring additional weapon balance and bug fixes to both games, but players can also look forward to new content in Season 5 Reloaded. The mid-season update is set to bring new operator packs to the store and weapons to unlock with challenges.
New weapons and operator
The mid-season update for Last Stand includes two new weapons for Vanguard and Warzone. The BP50 and Lienna 57 assault rifles will be available to unlock for free with in-game challenges, or the weapons can be purchased directly from cosmetic packs.
Continuing the Call of Duty villain theme for Last Stand, two classic Call of Duty antagonists are receiving Operator Packs in the store. Gabriel Rorke from Call of Duty: Ghosts and He “Seraph” Zhen-Zhen from the Black Ops series will arrive sometime during the Season 5 Reloaded update.
Few details about Warzone’s Reloaded update are revealed, but the Season 5 roadmap showed off two limited-time modes. There is vague mention of a new LTM for Caldera and a Resurgence Supreme mode coming to Rebirth Island. Resurgence Supreme is described as a mode where squads of four come in with the “best weapons” and with respawn enabled to earn prizes for winning the match with 15+ eliminations.
Vanguard MP and Zombies
For Vanguard multiplayer, Fortress will likely be the final map in the game. Fortress is described as a medium-sized map set in the Mediterranean, where the remains of old ships litter a desert landscape.
Nothing has been announced for Zombies in Season 5 Reloaded. Archon, the final map for Vanguard Zombies, arrived at the start of Season 5: Last Stand, so players shouldn’t get their hopes up about any additional new content.
There will likely be some weapon tweaks and bug fixes in Vanguard, but given how light the game’s content has been in recent season updates, Season 5 Reloaded could be more of the same.
With Vanguard and Warzone Pacific quickly coming to an end, here’s everything we’ve learned about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Warzone is also getting a sequel this year, and here we’re highlighting all the details surrounding Warzone 2.0.
