Raven Software have released a new Warzone August 25 Update, introducing a number of bug fixes and a brand new feature. The latest Warzone Update introduces the new "Looking for Party" system, the RAAL LMG, and fixes the notorious contracts bug. Let's take a look at the Warzone August 25 Update Patch Notes, and dive into the changes.

Warzone Season 5 has been a blast – pun intended – so far, and whilst there have been a variety of problems, and not many big additions, we've been having a lot of fun. What were the main troubles, other than the lack of new content, I hear you ask? Well, Warzone Season 5 had a pretty irritating contracts bug, and you still couldn't search for a party. In Warzone's August 25 Update, both of these issues have been resolved. Let's take a look!

Warzone Season 5 is in full-swing, and the new Warzone August 25 Update has introduced some quality changes. The big question, though, is what's going on with Call of Duty: Vanguard? Here's the latest...

Warzone Update: What is "Looking for Party"?

The new "Looking for Party" feature is a beta introduced in Warzone's August 25 Update, allowing players to search for and party up with other players via a selection of preferences. Basically, the new feature introduces a set of preferences available for players, who can then find a party based on the game mode they want to play, their preferred method of communication (i.e. if a player wants all mics muted), and things like player play-style. It is a system that's still in beta, but could be extremely useful for players who want to play in a party, but don't have any friends available to play with. The preferential system sounds like a good idea, but we'll have to wait and see how it all works out.

Warzone Update: New RAAL LMG

Warzone's August 25 Update also introduces the new RAAL LMG to Warzone, something players have been yearning for. The new RAAL LMG is a very popular weapon from Modern Warfare, and we expect that it may be widely used now that it has been officially added to Warzone. We won't go into detail here, but here's our unlock and setup guides to help get you started:
