CoD Patch Notes: Warzone/Modern Warfare Update Out Now (August 24)

The big Call of Duty: Season 5 Reloaded update has arrived. Read the full patch notes and other important details here.


A new Season 5 update has been released for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone. The August 24 patch is out now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC and is a somewhat sizable download, weighing in anywhere from 10 to 17 GB depending on your platform of choice--a more modest file size compared to some of Call of Duty's larger past updates. The update comes ahead of the upcoming reveal for the next Call of Duty game, called Black Ops Cold War, which is set to take place this week. Read on for a look at the full patch notes to see what's new and changed in Modern Warfare and Warzone.

Call of Duty August 24 Update File Size

  • PS4: 10.6 GB
  • Xbox: 14.09 GB
  • PC: 11.3 GB (F2P) / 17.6 GB (Premium)

In terms of bug fixes, the Season 5 Reloaded update fixes a problem where your parachute would open "randomly" when dropping over certain parts of the Warzone map. In Ground War, you can now spawn on APCs, but in order to do so it will need to have enough health--the game won't let you spawn in on one that's about to be destroyed. And weapon stat graphs have been updated to reflect balance changes that have been made to the game post-launch.
