The EX1 Energy Rifle is a futuristic version of the EM1 energy weapon from Advanced Warfare. This described "prototype energy rifle" is the perfect long-range weapon for any soldier. To top it off, it relies on a rechargeable battery system, not traditional ammo.

Following that up comes the RA 225 SMG, a developer described lightweight and mobile with a fast fire rating weapon. Alongside it is the Valois Revolver, a rather unique addition to Warzone as it acts as a melee weapon and a pistol that holds six bullets.

Lastly are the BP50 and Lienna 57 Assault Rifles, the former seems to be modeled after Modern Warfare 2's F2000 while the Lienna 57 stands on its own. Surely these weapons will shake up Warzone's long-range meta.

New Gameplay Features in Warzone Pacific Season 5

Topping this fifth and final season are a set of gameplay features that are destined to change up Warzone's gameplay.

Doomsday Station

Perhaps the most important one is the Doomsday Station. With a $10,000 fee, players will cause multiple helicopters to overtake the skies, lowering enemy soldiers to attack your position. Players can defend themselves from the oncoming attackers to give themselves a chance at earning powerful items.

Supply Box UAV

Following that up is the Supply Box UAV that stems from Supply Boxes or from Buy Stations.

This new Killstreak gives players assistance in tracking down their enemies as well as it'll mark any unopened Supply Boxes in their Tac Map for 15 seconds.

Personal Supply Boxes

Although not directly affecting gameplay, the all-new Personal Supply Boxes have become a part of Warzone. Find the "extremely rare" boxes and all squad members will be awarded a "huge XP boost" and a number of Loadout weapons.

Rage Serum

Last but certainly not least is the Rage Serum. Coming in as a new Field Upgrade in Season 5, activating it will make players "violently unstable" providing them with improved melee damage, lunge distance, and stun power.

It does have some downsides, however, as it'll make players' footsteps louder and more susceptible to flashes.
