Warzone Season 5 is here and players can finally start getting to grips with the new weapons and map changes.

So, if you’re wondering what the Rage Serum Field Upgrade does, then our handy guide has everything you need to know.

Rage Serum is a new Field Upgrade that’s been added to Warzone as part of the Season 5 update. Players that use this new tool will gain access to “superior melee damage, increased lunge distance, and enhanced stun power while fighting with melee weapons or fists.”

Here’s a detailed breakdown of the specific stat boosts:

  • Rage Serum lasts 40 seconds
  • Movement Speed increased by 8%
  • Damage w/ melee weapons or while armed increased by 50%
  • Lunge Distance increased to 3.2 meters, up from 1.4 meters while standing
  • Melee Stun Power increased by 50%
  • Players have louder presence

Despite the significant boost in damage, there are two major caveats to taking Rage Serum. These disadvantages are as follows: 

  1. The Operator’s movements become audibly louder.
  2. The Operator receives an added recoil penalty when stunned or flashed.

This means players will need to use Rage Serum carefully when going in for close-quarter kills. The official description from the Call of Duty blog page notes how “forces aligned with Raul Menendez appear to have discovered a new mineral at the core of Caldera.” 

When the mineral is combined with additional chemicals and distilled, it increases the volatility of all those who inject it. Quite whether the Rage Serum will be the go-to Field Upgrade in the Season 5 meta remains to be seen, but for now, it seems incredibly potent.
