UPDATE - Season 5 Patch Notes

Raven Software has finally released their next set of Patch Notes and there's nothing too interesting. A Weapon Balance update is coming in the future, so they're surprisingly short this time around.

High Alert can now detect Dead Silence, though, and there are changes to the Armor Box icon to help better differentiate it from the Ammo Box. They're not major changes, but something. You can find everything you need to know about the Season 5 Patch Notes below:
