New train coming to Warzone map in Season 5 – how will it work?

The upcoming Season 5 of Modern Warfare and Warzone will be introducing an all-new train to the battle royale map, and here’s everything we know so far as to how it’ll work.

With Season 5 set to kick off on August 5, Activision and developers Infinity Ward are starting to reveal more and more about what’s coming next in Modern Warfare’s fifth chapter.

The new trailer gave fans a good glimpse of what to expect in terms of new content, one of which was a change to Warzone that’ll add a moving train to the map.

In the video, the train can be seen riding throughout Verdanks, carrying both equipment and people. At one point, a player appears to return from the gulag and gun down his would-be assailant(s), confirming that you will be able to ride the vehicle.

How will it work?

We won’t know the exact specifics of the train until Season 5 fully launches, but the trailer and leaks from other sources give us a good idea of how it’ll function.

For one, it appears to be riding throughout the map, which means players will be able to use it to not only get around Verdansk a lot more quickly but also play more aggressively as well, which should only make the fan-favorite ‘bot race’ Warzone tournaments even more popular.

Secondly, it’s almost definitely going to carry loot, probably including high-tier items, which will make landing on it or trying to ride it a high risk/high reward decision. This is not only from the video, but also according to an earlier leak from prominent dataminers ‘ModernWarzone.’

Also, the trailer made it clear that the train will be as close to an unstoppable force as you can get. At one point, it runs straight through a jeep that’s attempting to cross the tracks last-second, destroying the vehicle and presumably downing everyone inside it.

So, keep that in mind if you’re thinking about attempting some daredevil tricks with the train around.

Parallels with Apex Legends

Fans of Apex Legends will instantly recognize this new change as being very similar to when Respawn Entertainment did the same to their then-new map, World’s Edge, back in October of 2019.

Just like now in Warzone, the Apex devs added a train that carried prized loot and offered players a way to get around the map swiftly. In terms of how successful it’s been, most players would probably call it a good feature, one that changes how the game can be played but doesn’t dominate the meta.

So it’s not hard to see where Infinity Ward got the inspiration for this from, but that said, however, only time will tell whether it’ll be a successful change or not.

Best Fennec loadouts for Warzone and Modern Warfare

The Fennec has now been out for a few months, but you’ll still need to equip the right attachments if you truly wish to master this lightening fast SMG. Here, we break down two of the strongest Fennec loadouts you can use.

The Vector, now known as the Fennec, has been a popular SMG ever since it first graced our screens back in Modern Warfare 2. Packed with a buttery smooth recoil pattern, excellent hip-fire, lightweight, and insanely fast rate of fire –  the Fennec is an absolute beast of a gun. In fact, this deadly machine gun is so lethal that it can tear through multiple enemies in just a blink of an eye. 

This zippy SMG hasn’t taken the crown away from the MP5, but the Fennec is still a popular choice. For many, this weapon is still a go-to, particularly in close-quarters where hyper-aggressive play is rewarded. In order to help you get the most out of the Fennec, we’ve put together two loadouts that you can use to dominate the competition in both Modern Warfare and Warzone. 

Best Fennec loadout for Warzone

Infinity Ward/DexertoBoost the Fennec’s damage range with this deadly loadout.
  • ZLR18” Deadfall 
  • Merc Foregrip
  • Stippled Grip Tape
  • Sleight of Hand
  • 40 Round Drum Mags

While Warzone’s large scale map may favor long to medium range engagements, you’ll still want to equip a weapon that can give you the edge in those close-quarter firefights. This loadout increases the Fennec’s hip fire, while also giving it a little extra range for when you need that added distance. 

First up is the ZLR18” Deadfall. This attachment not only drastically increases your effective damage range, it also ups your recoil control and bullet velocity, helping with the precision it needs when going for those all-important body shots and headshots. While this attachment increases your ADS speed, we think this loss is worth it, especially when you consider how woeful the Fennec’s mid-range damage is. 

The next two attachments are the Merc Foregrip and Stippled Grip Tape, along with the Sleight of Hand perk. Not only will these additions keep the Fennec stable while aiming and hip firing, they will also increase the ADS & sprint to fire speed, improving your reload speed and giving you even greater control when you need to react quickly.

Taking down fully armored players in Warzone can often prove frustrating, but the 40 Round Drum Mags will give you more than enough bullets to shred through many an armored enemy. This attachment is a must for those that want to secure those game-winning squad wipes.

Best Fennec loadout for Modern Warfare multiplayer

Infinity Ward/DexertoThis loadout absolutely obliterates players in close-quarter firefights.
  • ZLR 18″ Deadfall
  • Tac Laser
  • No Stock
  • Merc Foregrip
  • 40 Round Drum Mags

This build is all about melting your opponents in close-quarters combat. The Tac Laser drastically lowers the Fennec’s ADS speed and increases overall stability, while also allowing you to maintain a steady walk while aiming. 

Being able to quickly take care of enemy threats without needing to ADS is a godsend, particularly on smaller maps like Shipment and Rust, where you’ll constantly find yourself running into enemy players. 

Lastly, the Merc Foregrip will also increase your recoil control and hip-fire accuracy, allowing you to quickly fire off the Fennec’s blisteringly fast rounds with deadly precision. Foregoing the stock for this build will give you a slight boost in movement speed for quicker reaction to get away from players, while The ZLR 18” Deadfall and 40 Round Drum Mags should always be a top priority for any Fennec players looking to increase their kill potential, so always try to build your loadout around these core attachments.
