Infinity Ward teases trains for Call of Duty: Warzone season 5

Infinity Ward has begun teasing the upcoming fifth season of Call of Duty: Warzone, and it looks like trains will be making their way to Verdansk very soon.

In a teaser trailer sent to popular Call of Duty streamer NICKMERCS (via CharlieIntel), footage from a train appears to show a helicopter flying overhead. At the top of the screen the date August 5, 2020 is displayed, hinting at when we can expect the new season to either begin or be further unveiled.

 

This backs up reports from VGC earlier this month that claimed the next big update to the battle royale would see loot-filled trains circle around the map, not unlike the ones already seen in Apex Legends. Considering those trains are the best bit of the entire Apex map, I'm not at all against more locomotive-based carnage coming to other games too.

VGC also claims that this update could be part of a larger transition from Warzone away from its Modern Warfare aesthetic tone to one more in-line with the Cold War-themed Call of Duty by Treyarch expected to release later this year. This comes after players finally began gaining access to the Cold War bunkers found around the Warzone map back in May, leading the community to assume it is an event leading up to both the Cold War game's formal announcement and Warzone's overhaul to match it.

Infinity Ward has not yet said anything else on what Season Five will entail, but considering August 5 is only a few weeks away now, you won't have long to wait to see what rolls into the Verdansk station.

Try these Warzone loadouts to get you out of trouble

 

The gear you need, if you've cobbled together the cash for a drop.

Hunting for the best Warzone loadout? You may have noticed other players tearing through CoD: Warzone matches with tricked-out assault rifles and powerful perks at their disposal. “Hacks!” you may cry, mashing your keyboard in anger. But as they say, if you can't beat them, join them.

Loadouts let you choose primary and secondary weapons, perks, and other equipment. While Warzone's loadout structure is similar to Multiplayer, acquiring them is actually very different. Loadouts take the form of an in-game care package that you buy with cash. It's enough to turn the tide of a match, providing you choose wisely. So, here’s an introduction to the Warzone loadout system, with some pointers about what gear to add to your personal arsenal.

What’s the difference between Multiplayer and Warzone loadouts?

Loadouts are a feature in Call of Duty's Multiplayer mode where you can choose primary and secondary weapons, perks and grenades in the menus before a match. Once you have the hefty $10k asking price, you can pick from a series of loadouts in-game to be parachuted to your desired spot on the map.

In Warzone, it’s a little different than to Multiplayer. First, killstreaks don’t have any bearing, as Warzone has its own. And naturally, they’re not available every time you die, since this is a battle royale. Beyond that, they function in the same way, and retrieving one is like stepping into an old pair of shoes.

Call Of Duty: Warzone Cheaters Now Have To Play Each Other

 

Infinity Ward is working to clean up the CoD: Warzone battlefield on PS4, Xbox One, and PC; here's how.

Infinity Ward has provided an update on what the studio is doing to help stamp out cheaters in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and the battle royale game, Warzone. The solution? Put cheaters in the same game so they can be miserable together.

Beginning now, Modern Warfare and Warzone players who report potential cheaters will receive an in-game notification to let them know the offending player was banned. Additionally, Infinity Ward has released "additional dedicated security updates" to both games, while matchmaking has been updated to place suspected cheaters into matches with one another. Additionally, Infinity Ward is deploying more resources to its enforcement teams, among others, to help rid the games of cheaters.

Looking further out, the promised in-game "report-a-player" feature is coming soon, Infinity Ward said. This will be available from within the killcam and spectate modes.

 

Players have loudly voiced their concerns about the state of Modern Warfare and Warzone as it relates to cheating, though it's too soon to say if these new measures will be effective.

One further issue is that Modern Warfare and Warzone feature cross-play support between console and PC. Historically, PC tends to be where most of the cheating takes place due to the nature of the platform being more open than consoles. Some players on console have elected to turn off cross-play to help with the issues, and you can easily do this from the in-game settings.

Infinity Ward has already banned more than 70,000 cheaters from Warzone, and this figure does not include any bans for the standard Modern Warfare. "We are watching. We have zero tolerance for cheaters," Infinity Ward said.

The full Warzone security and enforcement policy document lays out everything you need to know about offenses that can get you banned, or worse. Cheaters are also being banned in Call of Duty Mobile with similar policies and reporting features.

Activision's latest numbers show that Warzone has attracted some 50 million players, so it makes sense statistically that there would be some bad eggs. For comparison in the battle royale space, Apex Legends developer Respawn announced in March 2019 that it had banned more than 350,000 players, a number that has surely grown since then.
