Warzone Season 5 Event Leaks Reveal “Modified” Verdansk

HeyImAlaix took to Twitter to reveal that an in-game file for Warzone appears to show a possible modified version of Verdansk ’84 with explosions. The game file in question is called “explosion mp_don4_x2_explosion”.

This might seem like gibberish to many, but Alaix broke down the name of the file to make it easier to understand. Of course, we can all understand the ‘explosion’ part of the file name, but mp_don4 is reportedly the name of the current Warzone map and x2 is the code for an event.

When you put those three things together, all signs point towards some sort of explosion happening in the next Warzone event.

Alaix went on to reveal further game files that feature all of the current Warzone vehicles with custom skins for the event, which will most likely be WWII themed as the Season 5 Event is rumored to be for Call of Duty: Vanguard.

What Is The Season 5 Event And When Is It?

It’s important to take leaks with a grain of salt, as nothing is confirmed until it comes from the Call of Duty team themselves. But one thing we can confirm is that Warzone Season 5 will feature some sort of event, as revealed in the roadmap.

An exact release date or start time for the event hasn’t been revealed yet, but we do know it’s called ‘The Numbers’ and will take place mid-season 5. Reports suggest that the event will be a reveal for the next Call of Duty title, Vanguard.

With most Warzone seasons lasting approximately two months, fans can expect the mid-season update at around the one month mark. So if the upcoming event is set to take place mid-season, it might not arrive until late August or the beginning of September.

When Is Warzone Season 5?

Season 5 will kick off in both Warzone and Cold War on Thursday, August 12th at 12AM ET / 5AM BST.

Fans will be able to download the update file roughly 24 hours before the new season goes live.
