The new season of Warzone coming Aug. 12 is launching with a first for the popular battle royale, which is the first introduction of exclusive perks for Warzone only. Since launch, Warzone has shared its perks with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Now, however, there will be two new perks added into just Warzone, and one of the two new perks is Combat Scout.

Warzone Combat Scout: How Does it Work?

Combat Scout is a recon ability, and a very unique one for Warzone. It allows the player to receive more intel in a gunfight, as after damaging an enemy they will be highlighted for a short time, as well as automatically pinging them so that a players team is able to gain all the information they need on the enemy's position.

Communication is very important with this perk, as it can allow a team to have an incredible advantage in information when used correctly. Especially late in Warzone games, where information can make all the difference in who wins and who sees the Gulag, this perk can be incredibly useful in a coordinated teams hands. Similar to Bloodhound's abilities from Apex Legends, an ability that can convey an enemies location to the team can change a team fight around in its entirety.

This addition along with others, including another exclusive Warzone perk, Tempered, and the long awaited return of fan favorite map Slums all come to Call of Duty when Season 5 drops on Aug. 12.
