Modern Warfare's Season 5 update saw some huge changes come to Warzone, from new weapons to destroyed stadiums, Verdansk will never be the same again. One inclusion within the game's update that didn't come with open arms however, is the Juggernaut drops.

Similar to how the in-game events: Jailbreak, Fire Sale, and Supply Choppers work, Juggernaut Crate drops now fall from the sky, allowing a player to hijack the suit and cause rampant destruction throughout Warzone. However, players who jumped in these were basically awarded a free win. Their insane health and powerful minigun have resulted in Juggernauts to rip through teams, and just 24 hours after the highly anticipated update, players have already rage quit the game and called for the Black Ops Cold War announcement to 'get its skates on'.

As you can see in the video, in duos the Juggernauts are impossible to kill - even by blowing up a vehicle that they're driving. The fan base took to Reddit and Twitter to convey the thoughts of the many, explaining just how overpowered they are and how the frequency of them results in impossible games.

Infinity Ward has since released a small patch which will remove the Juggernaut crate and Most Wanted contract in BR Buy Back Solos, as well as lowering the drop rate of Juggernaut crates and how often they appear.

Modern Warfare Season 5 has been a success, Juggernaut aside. With the AN-94 being an incredible assault rifle that is capable of rivalling the M4A1 as the best AR in the game, and even rival the Grau 5.56 and Bruen MK9 in Warzone. Some gun balances are scheduled to come to Modern Warfare later in this season, as players have called for the Rytec ARM sniper, FAL assault rifle and Bruen MK9 light machine gun to be nerfed due to being overpowered.
