General New Call of Duty Modern Warfare Update

Capture-3.jpg

Activision has detailed this week’s Call of Duty Warzone and Modern Warfare update. Warzone, their free to play Battle Royale mode, will see several additions this week, including a limited-time Classic Battle Royale mode, which features such as Buy Stations, Contracts and the Gulag.

A bigger game changer though is the addition of SMG and assault rifle weapons to the gulag. Players would already have the ability to shotguns and pistols, but will now randomly spawn with these other weapon types during their 1v1 respawn battles.

The "Armor Box" is a new item added to all modes in Warzone. Its similar to the Munitions Box, however, this item can be used by the entire team to replenish their armor. The Armor Box can be found in ground loot, Supply Boxes, or purchased at a Buy Station. The final addition sees Bloody Money rotated to Quads.

As for multiplayer, the Modern Warfare 3 map Hardhat has been added to the list, along with a new playlist update. Aisle 9 is the latest Gunfight arena and it’s available in its own unique playlist – ‘Clean Up on Aisle 9’. The 3v3 playlist will host TDM, Kill Confirmed, Grind, and Domination, so “players can discover multiple ways to fight on this small map". Finally, the ‘Ghost Pack Contingency’ bundle will be added to the store this week featuring two weapon blueprints and a new skin that gives Ghost a classic look.

Activision continues to ride their success, as they recently reached 60 million players since March. The publisher also said the next premium Call of Duty game, “already looks great and remains on track for release later this year”.
