New Points of Interest included in Call of Duty Warzone season 5 patch notes:
Mobile Broadcast Stations
These POIs can be found in a variety of locations in Verdansk, differing from match-to-match to keep one area from being signal boosted by the rewards they offer. See what they’re all about by going closer to them, but be sure to keep your head and tune out the broadcast each one emits…
[[REDACTED]] has gone off grid and reports suggest [[REDACTED]] is doing [[REDACTED]] in Verdansk – what, we do not know. This is an unauthorized [[REDACTED]] that could jeopardize our [[REDACTED]] in discovering and stopping Stitch.
New Gulag: Rush:
Based on the classic Black Ops II map, this layout consists of the main speedball arena.
Beware of these doors sending you to unexpected locations other than the main room. This may have something to do with those Mobile Broadcast Stations seen around Verdansk…
General Call of Duty Season 5 Patch Notes Update
[Console Only] High-resolution textures are now delivered through On-Demand Texture Streaming. To enjoy a similar visual quality, enable this feature in the Options menu.
[PC Only] The Windows 7 operating system will stop being supported by Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® and Call of Duty®: Warzone™ on September 8th, 2021.
Loot that spawns across Verdansk has been adjusted as follows…

The Sentry Gun Killstreak can now be found in Supply Boxes
The TEC-9 (BOCW) and EM2 (BOCW) have been added to the loot pool

- Combat Scout – Slot 3 (Yellow)
Damaging an enemy briefly highlights and automatically pings them.

Armor Plates are reinforced and now absorb 75 damage instead of 50. Only two Armor Plates are needed for an Operator to be considered “fully armored.”

This change only applies to Warzone.

UI and UX
Added a new Armor Box icon to better differentiate between Ammo Box and Armor Box.
Added the option to have Steady Aim Behavior be a toggle instead of a hold for Controller and KBM.
This accessibility feature supports motor disability by eliminating the need to hold a button for extended periods of time in order to stabilize scoped Weapons such as snipers.
The setting has two options:
- Hold: Press and hold to steady aim.
- Toggle: Press to steady aim. Press again to stop.
Note: The setting cannot be used if the Change Zoom Shared Input setting is set to Steady Aim (Sprint/Tactical Sprint/Steady Aim Keybind in Warzone).
Warzone Season 5 Weapon Patch Notes introduced to new weapons and attachments.
