Modern Warfare & Warzone Season 5 Stealth Changes Listed

Share this:

Earlier this past week, Infinity Ward dropped the big Season 5 update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone! Same as with almost every patch, there are stealth (read: hidden) changes not mentioned in the actual patch notes. If you’re curious what they are, we’re here to hellp with our Modern Warfare and Warzone Season 5 stealth changes list!

Most of the stuff listed below are from YouTuber Xclusive Ace’s new video, while others have come from the Modern Warfare/Warzone community. Read? Dig in below.

Modern Warfare and Warzone Season 5 stealth changes list:


  • Guns stripped down, no attachment look has changed (applies to blueprints only)

Modern Warfare:

  • High Alert perk now has a verbal warning aside from the on-screen warning.
  • Grau received a new “Squall” barrel attachment (get three point-blank kills in five matches to unlock).


  • Footsteps audio boosted (now louder before the patch)
  • Ladder movement sound boosted too
  • Everyone guaranteed to drop an armor plate when killed
  • Adjusted armor plate values – If armor takes less than 10 damage, you will replenish a full armor bar (won’t just top up the bar that got damaged). Anymore than 10 damage, and it will just top up the existing damaged armor plate bar. Note that this could be something already in the game before the Season 5 patch.
  • Self Revive Kit and Munitions Box prices adjusted – Self Revive now at $4,000 (from $4,500), and Munitions Box now at $4,500 (from $5,000).
  • Red and green propane tanks added – Red causes regular explosion, green causes gas explosion

Note that this might not be the complete list, given we’re not sure what changes Infinity Ward made that weren’t documented. If you spot any that’s not on this list, leave a comment below and once we’ve checked it out and it’s legit, we’ll add it t the list.

In other Call of Duty news, Infinity Ward has sent out mystery boxes to content creators hinting at something that will happeon on August 10! Cryptic messages have also started appearing to Warzone players, and it could very well be tied to the Call of Duty 2020 reveal.
