The next chapter in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and the battle royale game Warzone is about to unfold. The Season 6 update for the popular multiplayer shooter has gone live, and the patch notes are also out–you can read them below.
Infinity Ward senior communications manager Ashton Williams previously said in a tweet that the Season 6 update will go live at the usual time–11 PM PT on September 28. That works out to 2 AM ET and 7 AM GMT on September 29. For players in Australia, the patch will arrive starting in the late afternoon, from around 4 PM AEST.
The Season 6 patch includes a number of general fixes. For C4, a beep will now play when you use the quick detonation trigger; throw velocity has also been dropped by 30 percent. The patch also fixes an issue where players could hold unlimited stopping power rounds.
In terms of weapons, the Origin 12 shotgun has seen its damage at close range reduced, while all shotgun slug damage for Warzone has been increased. Additionally, the patch fixes a pair of problems that caused the player’s watch or heartbeat sensor to fail to fully appear when using the XRK chainsaw attachment on the Finn LMG.
For Warzone specifically, Infinity Ward has fixed a collision issue for the Stadium, while the patch also fixes an exploit that allowed players to see through a fence. The patch also fixes an issue whereby players could not damage enemies while using the ascender.

Even before revealing the patch notes, Infinity Ward provided an exhaustive rundown of what’s in the Season 6 update. This includes new maps for Modern Warfare, more weapons, and a new subway system in the battle royale game. There are also new Operators coming, including Farrah from the Modern Warfare campaign while there will be a new Battle Pass to get started on with the Season 6 refresh.
The game will also feature a Halloween-themed event called the Haunting of Verdansk, featuring limited-time modes and rewards. The PS4 version of Modern Warfare will see more exclusive content, but the previously PS4-exclusive Survival Mode will finally be coming to Xbox and PC.
