Call of Duty hints at Warzone Stadium opening in latest Season 5 teaser

After a few days of getting basically nothing, Call of Duty has once again started teasing Season 5 of Modern Warfare and Warzone, this time through a cleverly worded tweet.

Teasers for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone Season 5 are nothing new. So far, Activision has released three official teasers through popular content creators like NICKMERCS, TeePee, and JackFrags.

These teasers gave players nice little hints at what’s coming next in Warzone, such as trains and an explosion at the Stadium. After a few days of no new sneak peeks, the official Call of Duty Twitter account posted what appears to be another teaser, this time hidden as a seemingly innocent tweet.

The tweet features a picture of the Stadium area in Warzone, followed by the text that says “our doors to open to ideas” about what the arena should be named.

At face value, the tweet seems to be nothing more than just a way for the CoD Twitter to pick up some engagement. However, it’s highly unlikely that the wording of the caption is a coincidence, so it’s probably safe to assume that this is strongly hinting that the Stadium is going to finally open up during Season 5.

It’s also the most direct that Activision have been about the arena being accessible since posting some promotional Warzone art a few weeks back that showed the gigantic building’s roof wide open.

The question now is how the devs will go about doing this. Two of the previous teasers have shown an explosion going off in the area, which led some people to believe that the top of the building is going to get blown off. This tweet, however, seems to hint that the doors themselves are going to literally open. Could this upcoming change be a combination of both?

Season 5 of Modern Warfare and Warzone is set to start on August 5, 2020.

It shouldn’t be too much longer before we know the answer, as Season 5 is set to release on Wednesday, August 5. It’s probable that Activision and Infinity Ward will release official trailers and a roadmap leading up to the launch date, so we’ll know a lot more in the coming days.

Zlaner hilariously mocks Warzone fan after he & Dr Disrespect get killed

From tears of joy to tears of pain, a Call of Duty: Warzone player was thrilled to outduel Zlaner and Dr Disrespect until he realized that his Verdansk role model reacted by mocking him live on Twitch.

They say to never meet your heroes, but that can be hard to control when dropping into Verdansk’s randomized lobbies. As a perfect example, TikTok Warzone content creator and streamer, ‘maritimemucker,’ happened to encounter one of his longtime role models, Zlaner, on the roof of Superstore.

Mr. Mucker was running an SKS on the hot drop’s rooftop when a jump-shotting opponent rounded the corner, PP19 Bizon in hand. Mucker was able to turn, hit some jump shots himself, and outduel the foe. Excitedly, he quickly recognized that he had downed an upsurging Warzone star in Zlaner.

Afterward, maritimemucker was eager to check out his role model’s stream. But that ended up in heartbreaking fashion, as it turns out the popular streamer had mocked him right as he and the Doc were mowed down.

@maritimemuckerI don’t mean any disrespect Zlaner but you mocked my voice a lil ya know. Big fan and Kilo main now 💯 ##warzone ##Hotmics ##Zlaner ##drdisrespect ##COD♬ original sound – Maritime Mucker

As mucker shared on TIkTok and Reddit, he was shocked and grinning after killing Zlaner: “I got Zlaner, holy s**t … That is unreal … Huge fan of Z, I’ve been watching his s**t after he finally dropped that stupid Fortnite. Unreal.” 

But when he tuned into Z’s stream, he found out that the Warzone star wasn’t impressed with the 1v1 and had, instead, simply mocked Mucker’s death comms. 

Z’s duo, Dr Disrespect, was able to gun down the low-health maritimemucker, but was also quickly killed by the TikToker’s teammate. That gave Zlaner a chance to hear the death comms (as he dealt enough damage to be rewarded with the kill) and the tilted motivation to go high-pitched in mocking the smaller streamer’s excitement.

If you’re going to run into streamers in Warzone, it’ll probably be at Superstore.

In response, maritimemucker had to recognize that courtliness had been replaced by classic gamer banter: “Alright, I see how it is, Z.” 

So, of course, he proceeded not to insult Zlaner by words, but instead by alluding that the spectacled streamer looks like Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys.

The TikToker roasted Zlaner back by comparing him to Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys.

Ultimately, though, it’s all in good fun and maritimemucker still respects Z tremendously.

When a Reddit commenter suggested that streamers shouldn’t be looked up to, the mocked duelist replied that some Warzone stars deserve the hype: “There are some genuine great streamers out there, Z is one of them.”
