The Modern Warfare version of the MP5 has been given a secret buff in Season 5, leaving it as one of the most powerful weapons in Warzone.
Now, similarly to what we have seen with a range of other weapons in the battle royale, the MP5 has changed in popularity over the course of its lifespan, it seems that many players are now opting for the Bullfrog or MAC-10 for their close-range weapons.
However, it could be that the MP5 rises back the top after a Season 5 unannounced buff, Youtuber ‘TrueGameData’ took to the platform recently with a video exploring the recent secret buff.
The unannounced buff is thought to have taken place in the August 25 update, even though it has not been noted in Raven Software’s official patch notes.
TrueGameData heard from a follower about the buff, before investigating and seeing it to be true with the weapon possessing a lot more damage.
It is unclear exactly why this has been issued or why it was such a liberal buff, it is also unanswered why this has been missed from the official patch notes.
