Vanguard Season 5 Reloaded is set to be the final major update of the game’s lifecycle, and fans will be hoping to send this year’s CoD off in style. Here’s everything to expect in Vanguard Season 5 Reloaded, including when it should arrive.
Modern Warfare 2 is set to arrive very soon, making Vanguard Season 5 the final chapter before the future of the series begins. That being said, fans still have Season 5 Reloaded to look forward to as one last hurrah for Vanguard.
Here’s everything we know so far about Vanguard Season 5 Reloaded, from the expected start date to the new weapons confirmed.
Vanguard Season 5 Reloaded expected start date
There is no official word on when Season 5 Reloaded will begin just yet, but we’re expecting it to be around October 5, 2022. The current Battle Pass runs until November 16, making this date the halfway point.
October 5 also falls on Wednesday, which is the day that the developers tend to release their major updates to both Vanguard and Warzone. However, it remains to be seen if the schedule changes for the final season.
New weapons in Vanguard Season 5 Reloaded
While two guns arrived at the beginning of the season, the Season 5 blog post confirmed that players will be able to “earn two more weapons launching in the midseason update, the BP50 and the Lienna 57 Assault Rifles.”
The BP50 appears to be a version of the F2000 from Modern Warfare 2, known for its relatively low damage but blistering fire rate. This should make for a strong close-range option when it finally arrives.
Meanwhile, the Lienna 57 remains more of a mystery, but we’d expect it to be a more long-range option to offer a nice balance to the BP50.
New Operators in Vanguard Season 5 Reloaded
The final Vanguard season is bringing a number of families baddies from the CoD series back as Operators, with Raul Menendez from Black Ops 2 already available. Khaled Al Asad from Call of Duty 4 and Modern Warfare 2019 is also set to arrive in the coming weeks.
Season 5 Reloaded will then bring another two baddies into the mix as Operators. Players can look forward to Gabriel T. Rorke and Seraph bundles showing up in the store. Rorke served as the main antagonist of CoD: Ghosts, whereas Seraph was first featured in Black Ops 3.
That was everything we know about Vanguard Season 5 Reloaded so far. As we get closer to the start date, more details and leaks are likely to emerge, so we’ll keep this page up to date with the latest information.
New map in Vanguard Season 5 Reloaded
Vanguard Season 5 Reloaded will come with a new map titled Fortress, after Beheaded arrived at the beginning of the season.
Describing Fortress, the dev’s said: “Battle in a maritime graveyard on this medium-sized Multiplayer map set in the Mediterranean. The eponymous fortress incorporates an old ship into its design, creating a varied landscape to be exploited by savvy Operators.”
