Sledgehammer Games has announced that new character loot is coming to Advanced Warfare this Tuesday, March 17th as part of AWGearDrops. The new gear will be added into Supply Drop rotations, and there will be a certain way to earn a part of this gear.

Stay tuned for the latest!

    First before Keshav 🙂

    When will advanced supply drops come to other consoles than xbox?

    • Keshav Bhat

      Hi there – Advanced Supply Drops can only be purchased on Xbox One as of now. Those aren’t even available for purchase on Xbox 360; and as such, it’s unclear as to when these will be available on PSN or PC.

      • ScOott

        Did u say delta Intel used to be for b.f will that return for hardline ?

        • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

          Bravointel not delta, I think it didnt get enough visitors so got shut down.

        • Keshav Bhat

          • ScOott


      • Trick754

        The Advanced Supply Drops are available for purchase for xbox 360 now. An update came out yesterday.

        • Keshav Bhat

          It’s only available via leveling up, not available in the in-game store.

          • Trick754

            I really did see them in the store that night. I guess it was removed. I do remember not being able access the store for a moment. Now I know why.

  • This one actually looks good.

  • Cadence

    It looks pretty average, but more is always better, right?

    • ccrows

      Except when it’s clothes…

      • ScOott

        If the clothes are covering up an army man … I would say more is better 😮

        • ccrows

          I’m actually surprised that they haven’t made the Bush Wookie available for sale yet.

          Those guys were everywhere in Ghosts… lol

          • ScOott

            They should be .. But just put on the sniper class… I’m sure one of the older cods did that may be bo1 ? Unles I’m imagining it

          • ccrows

            They were in every COD since 4 (minus BO2) I believe.

            I’m just waiting for Bush Wookies to fly everywhere on jet packs, cuz you know at some point they’re gonna arrive… lol *facepalm*

  • zombiefreak935

    Why cant they make one of them look good?

    • ccrows

      Actually I just hope they patch the Domination “Contested” glitch on Tuesday.

      Don’t know why that got messed up on the recent weapon buffs patch, but that seriously needs to be fixed ASAP!…

      • Jasy

        And the game breaking wall breach glitch on Horizon. I’ve run into so many people trying to do it while grinding to Grand Master Prestige on Hardpoint. Absolutely ruins hardpoint games on that map.

  • Cyber-Ninja

    YAYYYYYYYY!!! Yet more crappy gear to sell for XP. :O)

    • ccrows

      E-L-I-T-E! E-L-I-T-E! = clothes clothes on Tuesday… 🙁

  • JayQuan

    Hey Sledgehammer, so more dull character loot that makes it even harder to get an elite weapon is a good thing, right?!?

    • Vikerii

      Spot on.

    • common sense

      I wish we had some loot called dedicated servers. sigh. Maybe one day.

      • JayQuan

        Not a chance, Activision is only willing to give us those Nigerian servers. *Sheds a tear*

      • NotShitAtCOD

        AW has dedicated servers its just if your connection is shit you wont get on a dedicated server.

        • Smayo

          I’m on a 150/100 fiber optic cable connection and I got host migration at least 1 time every 2-3 matches when I still played AW, so you are saying my internet is shit or maybe activision thinks it’s shit because I definitely was not playing on dedicated servers, maybe, just maybe activision is bullshitting the CoD community again like they did with ghosts…

          • Devin Wolfe

            I have a 160/8 cable connection and have never seen a host migration.

          • Smayo

            Im not seeing any host migrations either anymore but thats because I haven’t touched AW in over 3 months now.

            but it seems how better your connection is, the more you get punished

          • CJT737

            i have never had this what is it

        • Jesus Dad

          Bullshit my connection is always great… Except in call of duty

          • NotShitAtCOD

            A dedicated server can still lag its just more stable. (I know it doesnt make sense but its true)

      • Melchor

        A “No SBMM for 1 hour” Supply Drop would be nice too! LOL

    • SlyCooper5555 .

      I mean that’s true, but all the elite weapons people actually care about can be earned through the grandmaster prestiges. And they’re guaranteed.

      • monster

        Not the rip

        • SlyCooper5555 .

          True. But fortunately for me I already have that. But still everyone mostly wants the Speakeasy or Obsidian steed.

          • Terry

            I have all of the above

          • MasonMack

            I want the obsidian steed so bad, but I hate the rip, it’s trash to me, I wish there was a trading system.

  • ScOott

    Anybody else giving battlefield another chance in a couple of days … This is only going to be my second b.f game I was hoping cod lasted the year for me like it did before ghosts but It just ain’t doing it imo

    • burrgee

      100% getting hardline it looks awesome. Atm im playing bf4 alot more than AW. I usally play it for about an hour till i get 2 supply drops then play a diffrent game because i just get the same shit all the time Nigerian boots and helmet. And now with more loot coming its going to be even harder to get good weapons.

      • ScOott

        Yh I just watched some gameplay and they got some great camos also .. The kind of camo that should of been in cod in the first place 😮

        • Smayo

          Yeah saw that, some pink and green tiger camo’s, green camo’s are always my favorites, only thing I really don’t like about HL is that the prestige mode is behind a paywall (premium)

          • ScOott

            What ? … I thought premium was just Dlc maps and jump the line to get on a server and the odd camo …

          • Smayo


            nah also also the prestige mode (called legendary) and some other stuff is only available with premium.

          • ScOott

            Ooo at least they make clear what they charging for n what they not charging for id rather that then How aw been handled .. If I’m still playing it in 6 months il buy it then … Thanks for the link

          • Smayo

            Np, I do the same, if I’m still into HL when the first map launches I consider premium as an option

    • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

      Yup. Love battlefield and cod, bf4 Was a mess but I started playing it a few days ago and its awesome now. Preordered hardline This morning.

      • ScOott

        Yh one annoying thing is this “I got that one” every time u kill someone I hope that is out of the proper game

        • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

          I dont get many kills in battlefield lol. I just PTFO and drive choppers but still come top most games

    • Smayo

      Thinking about it, I’m watching alot of streams of BF:hardline this weekend it looks alot of fun but I still have my doubts, I never really enjoyed BF like I enjoyed CoD, but hardline is supposedly more fast past and CQC oriented then other BF games, and CoD these days…..yeah what can I say

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        Have you played the beta? It was free a few weeks ago.

        • Smayo

          No I haven’t, I downloaded it but when playing I got kicked out of the server every time, longest I been in a game is around the 5 minute mark, when I tried again a few days later the beta was already over so I didn’t experience a whole lot of hardline, the streams look fun though, so I might pick it up and give it a chance, then again so did AW…

          • ScOott

            Same here I hope that doesn’t happen when full game is out :-/

          • Smayo

            Probably not, the problem laid by the EA servers, I couldn’t play titanfall or UFC either that time, I don’t expect alot of problems with HL exept maybe on launch day

          • ScOott

            Fingers crossed

      • ScOott

        Same here I’ve always preferred cod probz cuz I’m better at it (I can’t fly a helicopter for shit on bf4) they sold me on the story any way …

        • Smayo

          Yeah the single player for BF:hardline looks very promising

    • Pete

      I still play BF4 regularly, it’s awesome. Not playing Hardline though, if that’s what you meant.

    • Believe it or not, I enjoyed BF4 from its release to this day. I didn’t really have any bugs or lag for some odd reason. I loved the 360 version until I upgraded to the one version, ho BOY is there a difference. I noticed the 60fps immediately and knew I was going to have a fun time.

      Right now I’m just sitting here counting the days until I can pick up my deluxe pre order of hardline.

      • MichiganerE

        You pre-order games? I’m disappointed in you.

        • I know right! Just giving them more money to invest in.

          • MichiganerE

            No, pre-orders lead to broken games.

          • Well that too.

          • MichiganerE

            Okay then.

        • Sorry, I believed that if I earned my money it was okay to spend it on a game regardless of what people I don’t know on the Internet say.

          Personally, as I’ve said before, I wasn’t effected by the rough BF4 launch others were experiencing, and I played just fine.

          I’ve solidified my opinion on my game with EA Access and the Beta, I definitely find this to iron out the serious issues I’ve had with BF4, vehicles and due to it I’ve had tremendous amounts of fun.

          Also, even if BFH has a rough launch, I’ll most likely be fine as I didn’t experience anything bad during BF4’s because I don’t have awful WIFI and I use a Ethernet, so I know I’ll be happy with my purchase.

          I believe I’ve justified my purchase.

          • MichiganerE

            Even if the problems of a game don’t effect you, they can still effect others. Pre-ordering is a cancer. Why? Because developers are getting their money early, and because of this, they’re getting their paychecks early; therefore, the publisher and developer get lazy, and release the game broken. Is that the route you want all games to go down? Don’t ever think that just because you weren’t affected by the issues of one game, you won’t be affected by others.

          • I want you to realise this.

            I payed 75$ to enjoy the game for myself.
            The DLC is apart of that for me.

            I’m not going to ” not buy ” a game because it might make a few people on the Internet angry because ” oh wow if I buy this it might ruin battlefield allitle ”

            Seriously, if I want to I can. Which I did, and I’m defintley enjoying.

          • MichiganerE

            That’s nice and all. But would you rather pre-order just to get extra DLC, or would you rather not pre-order so that there’s a chance of the game working?

            Also, I never said anything about it being bad to buy the game. Stop trying to twist my words.

          • Well you must not know what you’re talking about then.

            DICE and BF4 had a shit launch to get the money from Call of Duty Ghosts
            ( which wasn’t even needed, since the game ultra flopped )

            And you realise, they’re STILL compensating us, giving us constant battle packs and still updating the game, and giving us a whole new DLC pack for free, when they have absolutely NOTHING to gain from it?

            Dice isn’t Activi$on, they didn’t have much control to fix the game up before it was ready.

            Not to mention, Viserial now could have released the game in the state of BF4 but they didn’t, they delayed the game and had multiple betas ( closed and open ) to test it out.

            It’s fairly clear to me that they care about the game, Hell, it even uses little assets from BF4 other than a couple models and textures.

            AW on the other hand straight lied to us, advertising some stuff like the animations would be great, when simple stuff such as mag removal wasn’t even done, stuff done in BLACK OPS 2.
            It had a extra year than every other cod but has a smaller weapon list than most others, and most of the weapons are straight ripped from Ghosts and Cod4, and even weapons that weren’t ripped still reused the animations, such as the MP11.
            Also, Dice doesn’t plump the game full of DLC and cut features just to make you overpay for them, unlike SH.

            This Is getting alittle too big so I’m just going to say Viserical and Dice gave me their trust with redeeming actions, and my preorder didn’t ” damage ” or ruin BFH’s quality at all, because for the first time in a really long time I’ve had a fair, fun unbroken launch from a video game which is pretty rare now.

          • MichiganerE

            How do I not know what I’m talking about?

            While it did flop because of Ghosts, it still flopped nonetheless.

            It doesn’t matter if the game was fixed overtime, it shouldn’t have had the problems it had in the first place.

            Dice may not be Activision, but they controlled by EA (the company voted to be the worst for 2 years straight).

            Sure, BF: H launched well, but it could have still launched broken. Do think that just because they launched a working product, it means that they care about you? Not at all.

          • You must of skimmed my reply, because half the stuff I already said answers your questions.

          • MichiganerE

            Okay then.

      • ScOott

        Not many days to count … Out tomorrow! I’m just glad they made a new way of getting round the maps without adding a jet pack … I would of cried … Ur one of the lucky ones not to have any problems i wasted half the dIc brought due to most of it being unplayable … Never buying a season pass for anything ever again ..

  • burrgee


    • Smayo

      May or August also cuts it, as long everything related to AW gets pushed out of the spotlight.

  • Baldmanz_RAGE

    Same shit different colors!!! Yay!!!

  • Sam

    I think it’s good that there is more gear being added to the loot system because elite weapons are way too common at the moment

  • Right!!

    Busy playing Battlefield Hardline!!!

    • Except it comes out in 2 days?

      • Drasadex

        Probably on EA Access?

  • Guywithbrains
    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Probably just means Frank Woods is returning in the campaign, which is pretty cool. I don’t trust any of his info though, this is the guy who started the rumor of horses being in BO2 zombies lol.

      • Guywithbrains

        Also David Vonderhaar is being pretty cryptic as always.

        I am just wondering what new they could do to Call of Duty if they won’t use exo suits (which I hope)? Some micro-level destruction would be cool.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          I don’t think they’re going to do exosuits, which is good imo. I doubt the destruction will be anything too different. Well, nowhere near BF or Rainbow Six Siege. Honestly, I just want them to go back to a more BO2/BO1 gameplay style. It was really enjoyable for me.

          • Mark

            I thought the BO2 map events were PERFECT. If there were a few maps like Cargo (Moving containers) Express (Train) and Downhill (Ski lifts) that were perfect for CoD imo.

        • Kill Denied

          PRO PERKS

  • Xbox720p is sooooo 2006

    Do you kids really spend your pocket money on this garbage? Society has really got depressing if this is the case..

    Get some fresh air away from your sweaty bedrooms and go buy some real clothes.

    • jooker-jr

      And do u spend your free time hating on a game ?

    • Guest

      Its fucking free.

  • jooker-jr

    At least it’s free.

  • spodoor3254

    It makes your character look fat. Really fat….

  • JasonJoyce88

    The need to put the artic sniper Loadouts in from the booklet that came with the pro edition they put the shoes and mask from it in with the white out gear in the advanced drops

  • Saturn

    all the gear looks the same in this game except like 3 things

  • The only add on to the game I would be interested in seeing is fish A.I.

    • jooker-jr

      In the TRAFFIC mission in campaign, you can see FISH A.I in the last minute of the mission 🙂

      • True, but there should be something for multiplayer as well.

    • Drasadex

      “Advanced” Fish AI!

      • ScOott

        They best still swim away from u when u get close … I was amazed by that in ghosts

        • Drasadex

          There best be hundreds of colorful fish that swim around me when I get close lmao

  • Potato Republic

    Sledgehammer Games is now deaf to the cries of the community.

    We say: ‘Remove SSBM! Take out buyable Supply Drops! Take out the other 15 Prestiges! FIX THE FUCKING GAME!’

    They say: ‘What? Add more cosmetic junk to add to the supply drop rotation and decrease the chances of getting an Elite Weapon while ignoring the bigger issues we are too stubborn to fix?


    • What is life? What is money?

      • Potato Republic

        For Activision, money IS life.

        • So true!

        • Keshav Bhat

          Yeah, that’s so true. Activision is a business and a company; every company in this world needs and cares about money. Money is life for all companies, cause that’s how they pay employers and keep on working.

          • I’d give up at this point. They don’t seem to learn.

          • ScOott

            A business tends to try keep their customers happy at the same time … The customer is always right ? I’m pretty sure that’s a thing

          • GinsuVictim

            Have you worked retail, Scott? The customer is only right when we let them be.

          • ScOott

            I have .. But as a general rule I would say this is always true … If you want their money your going to have to listen to them … If the company I use stops listning I would find a different one .. I give my money to something that’s going to be year investment I would hope they listen to me and go with the majority of what people want not ignore it n say well I like it my way screw u… This is the only cod that has done this n makes no sense … They carry on not listning they lose custom ..

          • GinsuVictim

            Mostly, I meant that the customer just has to feel like they’re right, even if they aren’t.

          • Guest


          • ScOott

            Changed my name by depol … Shall I change it back 😮 ? … I never ment to put my real name on here in the first place and only just been able to change it on mobile …

          • zombiefreak935

            I understand what you are saying, But they are CHOOSING to not fix the real problems.

    • idkwhatmynameis

      Why would they remove buyable supply drops when theyre so new ps3 doesn’t have them yet. Imagina how unfair nd unbalanced that would end up being. And honestly how long has the community been asking for this removal, the shit jus came out to put it next to the OVERRATED sbmm shows how out of touch you are. Second if they decided to kill off the next set of prestiges how else are going to get a steed, speakeasy, silver bullet etc.. company’s are never gonna listen to some avatar named potato because you clearly don’t like the game. You bitch and moan and they’re probably thinking go play something else. The people who respect realistic process get heard. Its march, if don’t like aw by now move on with your life and let sledgehammer cater to those who want to play and enjoy the game.

    • Xecho

      You’re the definition of retarded.

    • NotShitAtCOD

      One of the reasons they put buy able supply drops in was because the community wanted them. Same with prestiges. Also the only gun people can fucking use is the asm1 anyway and the base A1 will take out any variant of any other gun in the game. so if they should do anything it should be destroy the ASM1 and raise the other smg’s.

      • Sean

        i just want the update to come out for ps3 ??

    • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

      Your only valid point is remove sbmm, and you can easily fix that by playing shit on purpose for a few games (hardpoint works best).

      1) Buyable supply drops are completely optional and you receive 4 per prestige for free anyway.
      2) New prestiges are always welcome, they allow actual fans of the game (unlike you) to continue their enjoyment for at least twice as long. Again, if you dont like them, they are optional so dont prestige.
      3) The game isnt broken, since the last update I have had no lag even with a shit connection. I never get crashes or time out, only faults are minor or with cheaters in infected.

      • Mobin Amanzai

        ^3) sample size too small, you can’t assume that it is or isn’t broken

  • CrowReap .

    Instead of this, we need weapon balancing and dedis.

  • Too hyped for Hardline to care about a silly recolor no one will want or care about.

    • jooker-jr

      You clicked on the post, you care.

      • I clicked on it to express my opinion and actually see what the cosmetics looked like.

        That years old response doesn’t work, and it only makes you look witty and smart Infront of ten year olds.

        • jooker-jr

          You burned calories because of this post 🙂

          • Um…

          • jooker-jr

            I want you to realize that I’m joking.

          • ……okay??

  • Fariko Lunatik

    Cant see why people keep bitching about dedicated servers, there is 0 problem with the way it is. Just get better simple as it’s the easiest COD ever to play so do like we all did and learn

    • idkwhatmynameis

      Its sad rite. Bunch of no life at home tryhards flat out bitching. Funny how when I play I never hear folks complain but you get on good ol charlie intel and its just sbmm crybabies, server crybabies, and racists who never mention any other kind of gear jus NIGERIAN stuff. So kva gear is awesome but let’s all cry about Nigerian. This community needs to look in the damn mirror sometimes

      • yardis

        You can’t deny the fact that Nigerian gear is the most popular. Out of all the supply drops I have open at least 1/3 had some Nigerian gear in it.

        • idkwhatmynameis

          I get the same kva and marine gahbage over and over

        • Kobrah

          I hardly have have any Nigerian stuff

    • J4MES

      That’s not the point though – with all the money COD generates; dedicated servers should be implemented regardless. P2P is sooo 2007. Even the Dreamcast had dedi’s for Q3 and UT and that was back in 1999! There is no excuse and Activision continue to mug gamers off with cheapskate technology foundations. Because COD is 90% kids these days; they get away with this nonsense as some people are too stupid to understand the key benefits of having a solid gameplay foundation in place.

      AW is a simple game because COD is an extremely dumbed-down brand these days and I fail to see what difficulty has to do with dedicated servers. They are two completely different aspects.

  • FazalGaming

    Since there’s so many like 10 year old kids online who the hell even buys them the game?

  • Redrum

    The gear looks boring but yeah …….

  • reamerb .

    Who cares ……..

  • Dylan DuGirls

    Bring back MW2

  • Stefan Lang

    Welp, it was frustrating while it lasted. Bring on Hardline??. Its a shame to see how SHG let this game go down the drain. It used a cool concept but due to shit that cripples the game its not enjoyable for everyone. Lets just hope the next CoD is as popular as Bo2 was and then maybe it will influence everyone to completely pack up their last gen consoles and play strictly next gen.

  • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

    But seriously, when is the new patch coming out for PS3? ;-;

  • bearrrr

    some weapon balance would be nice

    • jooker-jr

      They don’t have a button called ( weapon balance ), be patient.

  • arcengine

    Who cares. I have no way to earn then. Haven’t seen an advanced drop since prestige 14 level 40. I’m now at 15th level 30. Also haven’t gotten any in game supply drops either
