There was one final change that could make an appearance at the end of the balance adjustments, and it involves the Signal .50 sniper rifle. Infinity Ward and Raven Software are aware of the concerns that players have for the performance of the Signal, but they likely won’t make changes until the data reflects the power.

Two new weapons were also added to the roster with the release of the latest season. With that in mind, get the full list of weapons coming to MW2 and Warzone 2 in Season 5.
