The new ‘Combat Scout’ Perk in Warzone Season 5 has really changed the meta, but is it too powerful?
Before Season 5, the Perk meta in Warzone had become very stale. Almost everyone was running an identical Perk loadout of E.O.D, Overkill/Ghost, and Amped. However, Season 5 introduced two Warzone-exclusive Perks to the game.
