The final playlist update of Cold War and Warzone Season 4 will go live later today (August 5) with new playlists expected to arrive and maybe even some fan favourites leaving.

Even though a brand new season is right around the corner, Raven Software decided to mix things up by releasing the anticipated CX-9 SMG a few days ago. If you’ve popped your Double Weapon XP tokens and levelled it up to the max, JGOD has discovered the best loadout option for the CX-9 in Warzone. Check out the link below to find out all the details.

What’s Coming In This Week’s Playlist Update?

Call of Duty seems to be keeping this week’s playlist update under tight wraps as the usual Weekly Briefing wasn’t released this week. So, in terms of which playlists will be rotating in and out on August 5, remains a mystery.

What we do know however, is that Double XP and Double Battle Pass XP will be arriving on Friday, August 6th at 10AM PT until Monday, August 9th at 10AM PT.

With Season 5 only one week away, this weekend is the perfect time to make the most of that double Battle Pass XP as a new Battle Pass will arrive on August 12th.

The new Mace Melee weapon was also released by Treyarch Studios on August 3rd, it can be unlocked via completing an in-game or challenge or heading to the Call of Duty store and purchasing a bundle which includes the Mace.

Should any details surrounding the latest Playlist Update emerge before it goes live at 10AM PT / 6PM BST, we will update this article.
