Beachhead Studio has revealed details about how Clans will work with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. With Advanced Warfare, cross-network clans are no longer allowed. Meaning, you cannot have a clan with players on PSN and Xbox Live in the same clan; they need to be in a different clan.

Clans in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be independent from Clans in Call of Duty®: Ghosts. Don’t worry, we are going to help you transition your current Call of Duty: Ghosts Clan name and roster to Advanced Warfare.

To make way for new features and encourage a stronger connection between Clan members, Clans in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be required to exist within a single network.

If your Call of Duty: Ghosts Clan is already network-specific, then you will not need to do anything. We will automatically transition the Clan for you. If you are in a Cross-Network clan, there are some things you need to do.

If you have a Clan that has players from different consoles, you will have to make changes in order for your clan to transfer over to Advanced Warfare.

Beginning on September 25, 2014, if your Clan is Cross-Network, the Clan Leader must select the network of his or her choice in order to properly transition to the new Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Clan. Once a network is selected, you will have successfully reserved your Clan name, tag and emblem in Call of Duty®: Advanced Warfare. Members that have linked their accounts to the Clan Leader’s chosen network will automatically be added to the new Advanced Warfare Clan.

Any members who are not a part of the selected network will not be moved to the Advanced Warfare Clan. However, when the app launches, they will be able to create their own Clan or join a new one.

As mentioned, if everyone in your Clan already belongs to just a single network, you’re good to go! Your Clan name and member roster will automatically transition to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare with the same name and roster.

You will be available to select your network for your clan starting September 25th in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare at

    Can Beachhead just go away? I can’t think of one positive addition they have made to the franchise.


      Well said lad. Well said.

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      What have they done wrong?

      • Paul Thomas

        Clan Wars. Beginning and end of the wrong doings.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          What was wrong with Clan Wars? I never played it. It’s probably garbage.

          • I never had an issue with it…I thought it was neat getting exclusive patches for winning

          • ?

            basically made the game UNPLAYABLE to anyone who didn’t have a clan. (unless you wanna play FFA or team tactical)

          • The game would be unplayable WITHOUT clan wars haha

          • The game IS unplayable.

          • thats what I was saying haha

          • Michel

            League Play was cool etc.
            Clan Wars just sucks

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            League Play was awful. 🙁

          • Clan Wars – where clans could “capture” buildings like Police Stations, Oil Rigs, Airfields, Communication Towers, and Ports which had absolutely no relevance to anything, in different countries (that also had no relevance to anything) to earn themselves something called “Capture Points” on a map (I’m not talking about a MP map here, a made up map) that could only be accessed via the dedicated App on an iPhone which most of the time went down during the Clan War so you could never track your progress.

            And I bet none of you know what I’m talking about.

            In a nutshell, “Clan Wars”, in there current state, are one of the most poorly implemented, boring and dullest attempt at making the game somewhat fun and competitive – something I believe Elite did brilliantly.

            Bring back Elite and sack this unimaginative idiots at Beachhead.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Call of Duty Elite was the best, and Activision did a stupid move on cancelling Elite and making a silly app.

          • James Veach

            Lol beachhead also did call of duty elite. Was the exact same minus the made up shit, and still sucked wang.

          • Juicyjuice

            I felt that clan play wasn’t implemented well enough in league play in BO2, granted it was an amazing game. I liked Beachheads idea, but in the end it was poorly implemented… The only thing beachhead did right was to unite clan wars more, as playing with clan mates was a must to capture sites. To sum it all up. League=solo play. Clan wars=More United Clan

    • Corey is a retard

      Corey a f’ing idiot.

      • Corey

        Ah, you must be from Beachhead. Did I hurt your feelings, you irrelevant studio worker?

  • …….what

  • MW3 Clan Ops were always the most fun for me. I think it’s because it was the first Call of Duty to incorporate them or maybe because it was truly the best. Hopefully Advanced Warfare has a fun Clan battling system!

    • jordanxbrookes

      Indeed, Clan Ops is better than Clan Wars.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        To this day I still don’t understand how Clan Wars work, lol. I just played the gamemode my clan told me to for the short while that I played Ghosts.

        PS: I don’t want/need to know since I’m not going to play Ghosts. So for the sake of everyone’s time, don’t write a detailed explanation. (:

        • jordanxbrookes

          Clan Wars was confusing, Beachhead need to make it clearer to people how everything works.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Yes, it was. And wasn’t it mobile only? That was just terrible.

          • jordanxbrookes

            It was at first, but then it was available to Windows 8 users.

          • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

            Except no body uses Windows Gayt.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I do.

          • Whoa

            Derrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr was never heard from again. #bestfriends

          • jordanxbrookes

            Lol, I don’t just ban or delete someone because they have an opinion, that’s the whole point of a comment section. It’s only when abuse and profanity come into the conversation, where action is taken, and it’s not always being banned. #BestFriends 🙂

          • The7Reaper

            I can I be mod 😀 nah just kidding

          • Bartram22

            4 give me for sounding stupid … But do u get paid for doing this ? Or is it just a super power you have been given

          • jordanxbrookes

            Nope, it’s just an upgraded status. Me and Alex don’t get paid, just like how Keshav, Pete and Victor don’t get paid for doing this.

          • Whoa

            I know I meant more as a he got proven wrong so he doesn’t feel like commenting anymore thus never being heard from again. #bestfriends

          • Whoa was never heard from again.

          • Linux FTW!!! JK

          • jordanxbrookes


          • 70% of the population uses windows

          • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

            But only 5% of that uses Windows, dipshit. Notice I spelled *eight* wrong rather than “Windows.”

          • The “for no reason internet tough guy anger” is strong in this one

          • You became a mod on here!?!?

          • jordanxbrookes

            Correct, both me and Alex.

          • how? You just been on here a long time and they see you’re one of the few non-quick to attack people on the inter webs?

        • TheShadowReaper

          can we just have League Play from BO2 back? its felt being so well developed…

          • There is something similar, in the multiplayer reveal event they said there will be a ranked playlist

      • Quite.

    • MichiganerE

      You’re a mod too?!

      • jordanxbrookes

        Yeah, we both were assigned to be moderators, and since me and Alex are such good friends we’re #ModBuddies 🙂

        • MassiveChaos347

          i wanna be a #ModBuddies 2 :'(

          • jordanxbrookes

            We’re #TwitterAndYouTubeBuddies 🙂

          • MassiveChaos347

            Yippeee!!! 😀

          • You don’t have enough mod-sweq mate

          • MassiveChaos347

            yeah i know i was just joking 🙂

        • Can you Mod the hell out of sillibk ? everything he says is arrogant despite how much of what he says is calling others arrogant and insulting them for no apparent reason.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Depends, having an opinion is fine, it’s only when cursing, swearing, abuse, racism or any extreme profanity is used against a person or a group of people, is when I’ll take action.

          • Check his posts. Pretty much all of them have ” F*** ” in them or they’re filled with ignorant bias and incoherent hate.

          • TheShadowReaper

            and even in that case you need to give the person the benefit of the doubt, meaning that you cant just go ahead and “moderate” cause of one comment. everyone loses their shit once in a while so they need to be complete assholes for about 2-3 or more comment in succession in order for you to take action. although remember Jordan, i’ll keep in mind you being a mod around here but that wont change the way i type comments. i have a reputation build in cursing and profanity so i’m expecting that you wont take that away from me. 🙂

          • jordanxbrookes

            As long as you don’t direct it to someone, then it’s fine.

          • I honestly dont see what people have against him. Am I the only person who let’s people have an opinion? I don’t see anything wrong with him…

          • He puts insults and profanity in EVERY comment , prove your point and make your opinion clear without stooping to violent insults? ex . ” go fuck yourself you fucking faggot” whilst arguing about nothing.

        • I would pay to see Jordan 1v1 Alex for admin >=D

          • jordanxbrookes

            Alex would probably win because he’s a member of Axon and I think he uses a SCUF, so I’d definitely lose that fight.

          • Scuf doesn’t really do much to help other than the trigger stops. I owned a wireless one with pro grip,4 paddles and trigger stops. It broke because while I was charging it I think I stepped on the wire and it tugged the port out, so I’m ordering the same controller again but with scuf grip.

        • MichiganerE

          Must I respect your authoritah?!

            Ah, yeah…

      • Si Señor

        • MichiganerE

          Wow, have fun.

    • Willekeurig persoon

      FINALLY, someone who got it right!

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      I don’t have a clue what Clan Ops is. What is it?

      • Paul Thomas

        It was the MW3 and BO2 version of Clan Wars. Only difference was that it incorporated challenges (capture 250 domination bases) and even zombies(Kill X number of zombies) into how you leveled up your clan.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Wut? Zombies? This Clan Ops thing is news to me. Never heard of it.

          • Paul Thomas

            It was a part if ELITE and was the big Clan thing of MW3 and BO2. Since Ghost has come out they’ve shut it down.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)


      • It’s hard to type out. I sat here for 10 minutes trying to explain it, but talking about it out loud is so much easier. Lol. Just Google it and I’m sure you’ll find a really detailed answer.

      • Just like clan wars, you would have to go on ELITE (which is now shut down) and go into the clan ops section and sign up for one. They would start and end at certain times I think usually being like 12 hours long. They would be competitions that would be things like say the teams with the most CTF flag captures or most confirmed kills in kill confirmed. You would get medals if you won and also you could get real life prizes for getting first. There were also non competitive challenges though where instead of going against other clans, you just had to do a certain amount of things like for gold get 250 kills total in TDM.

    • Aaron V

      Black Ops 1…

  • QuanticWIKD

    What about Xbox 360 and Xbox one would it be the same network technically?

    • Bruce Wayne


  • I never even used clan wars. Probably did it once because I was bored and went with a couple of my XGN friends but other than that I honestly could care less..

  • Good, less competition is always good XD

  • Whoa

    Mw3 Clan Ops was the best experience I had with Clan integration in Call Of Duty! Everything went so smooth.

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    So… Clan Wars will have dedicated servers?

    • TheShadowReaper

      i doubt it. we dont get dedi servers even on PC. (which is supposed to be the norm)

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        League Play had dedi’s, publics didn’t.

        • TheShadowReaper

          really? i thought that was a myth. a marketing cork of ATVI as anything else ofc.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I don’t know. People were still DDOSing each other in League Play (which is one of the reasons why I hated it).

          • TheShadowReaper

            wow really? some try that on PC too (i’m looking at you LoL community) but its not that easy to pull off. nearly impossible tbh. i havent played much BO2 league play personally but it would have been sad to see people ddos attack in order to win.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Dude, this community is garbage lol. I hate to be a negative nancy, but it’s true. LoL probably has more stable servers (but anything with an online feature can always be DDOSed).

            DDOSing people to win was quite significant. It’s what made League Play annoying to a lot of people.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Anyone who DDoS’s another player or players have proven that they suck at the game.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            What’s funny, is that it’s the competitive community doing it.

          • TheShadowReaper

            so true, so true…

  • Looks like I’m going to have to join a new clan. My clan leader, and assist leader might be done with CoD because of how much Ghosts sucked. They barely even played Ghosts they played like 5 matches on the first day and haven’t played multiplayer since.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Join Squadron Tactics. #KnowledgeChangesEverything 😉

    • ლ(ಠ益ಠლ)

      Me too..

  • Clan wish list. Be able to ID a persons clan from the lobby. Incorporate and individual rank for each player. So seasoned members get rewarded and players who contribute get rewarded. Making a LP team with clan members gives them individual clan xp for their personal rank as well as total clan xp. Comprehensive leaderboards for lightweight, mid weight and heavy weight like black ops 2. Incorporate new stats which combine SPM WL and KD with experience. And allow records of scheduled matches between clans.

  • Lotterry

    Honestly FUCK clan wars pubs should not be competitive and when ima try and chill solo I don’t want to play against 6 man parties nonstop so they can have a nerdgasm for a fucking camo or patch or some false sense of accomplishment

  • I’m really hoping that clan wars is in its own playlist. That way, it’ll be clans vs clans, which provides more challenge and intensity while sparing the pubs.

    • Paul Thomas

      Only problem is that most clans are going to go into public playlist so the can “pub-stomp” and feel better about themselves.

      • jooker-jr

        I think they should only reward people who play in the clan wars playlist ( if they want to do this )

        • Paul Thomas

          I agree I get tired of trying to play a good game in Ghost or even Bo2 and I have to face an entire clan team.

          • GodLikeLeftNut

            agreed! they just use C4, high end streaks, dont play obj and go straight for spawns, any means for higher KD.

  • Ech!

    They still need to fix the Call of Duty app before they move on…

  • Is Beachhead Studios even an asset any more?

  • Mr codman1976

    As sledgehammer has taken lots of the best stuff from Blops 2, Why cant we just have league play back Its simple and everyone understands it, f%*k sake.

  • I’d like to join a clan because the public matches would be full of 6 parties, but at the same time I hate being in a clan. I don’t want to play always when told. Also I need to do stuff every now and then so I should be constantly being afk…

    Well, R.I.P win/lose ratio. I’m not going to stay in those lobbies.

    • GodLikeLeftNut

      know what you mean its like that for me atm, theres a party spawn raping and kd hunting so either be spawn raped or do the spawn raping 🙁

    • Suu

      “You should totes join meh, I’m all alone.’

  • GodLikeLeftNut

    but i dont have a clan but i wont to do competitive? 🙁 and no one uses a controller on PC so im all alone!

  • clans wars sucked any way

  • Guest

    Just bring back clan ops none of this clan wars bullshit

  • racsogames

    i dont like clan wars its garbage

  • Juses

    No!!! now Advanced warfare will be filled 6 man parts every lobby every other week 🙁

  • Me at Beachhead Studios:

  • Carl McAlpine

    Look, this is a mistake for sure, why would they want to break clans up and say it will bring us closer together, it is mad. Our clan consists of Xbone 360 ps3 & 4. By cross network, do they mean Xbone and 360, will stay together? This is not only a badly worded explanation but a poorly and ill informed piece of corporate decision making.

  • R.I.P

    My hopes for dinosaurs.


    • Ryumoau

      awwww dinosaurs was actually the one thing other than spec ops i hoped for. lol

      But at least it still seems like he hinted at zombies still being possible, which should please alot of people.

      • Meh. It’ll crush my hopes even more. im not a huge fan of zombies (maybe because that’s what all my friends wanted to play, so i always played it with them.)

  • Beachhead needs to stop ruining cod with this bullcrap clan try hard-isim.

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    No IGNFirst news today? Dang. I guess they’re waiting for Co-Op. Or there’s just no news on the weekends. Wonder what we’ll see on Monday and Tuesday?

    • Guywithbrains

      Almost never news on the weekends. We have to wait for any kind of co-op info to the next week.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Yeah I figured that out lol.

    • Juses

      Ign stuff is usually only during the week

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Yeah I thought so.

  • AmishHippo

    League Play is so much better.

  • S18
  • vikTOWN6ix

    Does this mean that XB1 players can be in the same clan as xbox360 players? Its only making a distinction between XBL accts and PSN accts being cross-platform, so I am assuming the 2 Xboxes are not considered cross-platform…
