Activision and Infinity Ward have officially revealed the version 1 of the Infinite Warfare esports rule set. This is first version, and Activision says the official CWL one will be revealed before the start of the CWL Season. To help get to the right set, they want our feedback. Tweet @CODWorldLeague and join the conversation.

V1:

Weapon and Rig Draft

Pending the planned inclusion of the in-game Weapon and Combat Rig Draft systems, each member on a team of four will select a separate Combat Rig, with no duplicate Combat Rigs permitted on the same team.

Each member on a team of four will also select a weapon via the Weapon Draft system, which will restrict each player to two primary weapons (secondary weapons are not subject to the Weapon Draft system). Duplicate primary weapons cannot be used on the same team. The Weapon Draft will occur on a per-map basis.

NOTE – The Weapon and Combat Rig Draft systems are currently in the process of being fine-tuned. The frequency of the Weapon and Combat Rig Drafts (per series vs per map) will be reevaluated in the coming weeks.

Hybrid Weapons

Hybrid Weapons represent a unique weapon archetype characterized by the ability to swap between two weapon functionalities “on the fly.” The team at Infinity Ward has taken player feedback into account and will work to “lock” these weapons in their default primary mode when played within the competitive ruleset. At the start of the season, players may still use these weapons contingent upon using only the default primary mode.

  • Type 2 – Assault Rifle only
  • RPR Evo – SMG only
  • EBR-800 – Sniper Rifle only
  • OSA – Assault Rifle only

Sidearms

With their placement outside the Weapon Draft System, Sidearms hold an especially critical role. The Team at Infinity Ward recognizes how impactful these weapons can be in professional hands, and are actively seeking feedback from the community.
