We've compiled a comprehensive breakdown of all the weapons that have received changes in the Call of Duty (COD): Warzone Season 5 Reloaded patch.

The patch officially went live around the world on Sept. 9 at 5 a.m. BST—but North American players were able to download it on Sept. 8 at 9 p.m. PT (12 a.m. ET). It included several additions to the playlist rotation, new modes, and maps. What we're interested in, however, are the weapons.

Warzone Season 5 Reloaded Weapon Tweaks

We've broken down the full list into type categories in alphabetical order for user convenience. It's also worth noting ahead that the new melee weapon, the Sai, will be listed under "melee" rather than have its own distinction as a recent addition.
