Activision says Call of Duty 2019 title to bring ‘game changing’ experiences

Published

on

During Activision Blizzard’s quarterly earnings call, the company briefly talked about this fall’s new Call of Duty title, coming from Infinity Ward.

Activision Blizzard President & COO stated that the internal enthusiasm and excitement for the fall’s release is very high and the company is very excited for the game.

He also stated that the “game and its post launch content plan” will bring “game changing experiences” for the fans, but did not elaborate on what that means or what they’re doing with it to make that happen.

Here’s the full quote from Activision Blizzard President & Chief Operating Officer:

As we’ve seen on previous occasions, Call of Duty reach saw more impact from a competitive backdrop, however, and importantly, our core player base remained highly engaged with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s total hours played growing double digits year over year versus WWII. We continue to release new content, modes, and events to sustain reach and attract new users, but we also recognize that we need to do even more to maintain the breadth of the Call of Duty player base beyond the launch quarters, and the Call of Duty team is hard at work on that for this fall’s big content release, excitement for which is incredibly high around the organization. We expect that both the launch and post launch content will bring game changing experiences to our fans.

Activision President Rob Kostich also was asked about Call of Duty’s 2019 release, but only provided a brief comment on the title:

We continue to feel incredibly good about this year’s game coming from Infinity Ward. The game’s going to be revealed later this quarter, and I think it’s going to be really clear then why we are so really excited about the release.

The company has reiterated that they are working on bringing more content, more often with new technology and increase in development resources available.

During the company’s call back in February, Activision President stated that the 2019 Call of Duty game would have an “entirely new campaign, huge and expansive multiplayer world, and some fun co-op gameplay.”

No other details on the 2019 Call of Duty game have been made available.

New Modern Warfare Season 7 leaks: Soap, weapons, more

A fresh leak has revealed that season 7 of CoD: Modern Warfare is coming with the game set for a new Soap operator, new weapons, and more.

Despite the ongoing success of Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, Modern Warfare is set to continue with a brand new Season 7. A leak has hinted at a new Soap operator, some new weapons to use, and a lot more.

It seemed like we said goodbye to Modern Warfare back in September with the game set to make way for the next entry in the franchise – Black Ops Cold War. However, a new leak has suggested that not only is the game not going away, but it’s set to be bolstered by a slew of fresh content.

The exciting leak has given us some insight as to what we can expect with most areas of the game being targeted for an update.

Modern Warfare Season 7 release date

If the reported leak from popular YouTube personality TheGamingRevolution turns out to be 100% factual, then we can expect Season 7 to drop on March 11.

The specific dates arise from the LTM Zombies Outbreak mode ending on that specific date, and speculation that Modern Warfare season 7 will fill this void.

New Modern Warfare Soap Operator

We mentioned a while back that a Soap Operator Bundle had been leaked for Warzone, and now it’s finally being implemented.

The legendary Call of Duty Captain is set to return to the series and he’s bringing with him different variants, three new Legendary weapon Blueprints, and the usual selection of Charms, Emblems, and Sprays.

Fans of Soap will have to part with 2,400 CoD Points, each, if they want to add this new Operator to their collection.

New multiplayer maps in Modern Warfare Season 7

In addition to new Operators, we are also set for some new maps to duke it out on as the leak indicates that the game’s array of multiplayer maps will also be expanded upon as well.

First up is Al Raab Airbase and this brand new location appears to be a large outdoor map with a big hangar near the middle of it. Also on the way is a reimagining of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare’s DLC map – Killhouse.

The other two maps are extra Gunfight playgrounds called Townhouse and Drainage. They will both be exclusive to the Gunfight mode it seems.

New weapons in Modern Warfare Season 7 & Warzone

As is now the norm with any new weapons for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, the new leaked weapons for Modern Warfare will likely make an appearance in the battle royale shooter.

The first leaked weapon is the Sykov pistol that has already been leaked and the sidearm has been available for use for some time now.

We then have the CX-9 SMG which has also been out in the public for some time. To actually use it, you’ll need to achieve two longshot SMG kills across five different games.

Our final new weapon is the Raal MG. This LMG rounds off the set and it certainly won’t be an easy one to get a hold of. To get it, you need to have leveled up another LMG, and then you need to get five kills with the Scout Optic in seven different games.

As we’ve said, all this information comes from a reliable leaker, so this information isn’t completely certain. However, if Season 7 does turn out to be the case, then Modern Warfare players have a lot of content to look forward to.

Fastest way to unlock Warzone’s Blue Dot reticle

Here are the fastest ways to unlock Warzone’s cleanest optic, the Blue Dot reticle, for Holographic and Reflex sights.

Published

on

Warzone Blue Dot reticle

The Blue Dot reticle is one of the cleanest optics you can equip in Call of Duty: Warzone, but it takes a ton of time and kills to unlock. We’ve put together a guide on the quickest ways to unlock it.

Many streamers and content creators favor the Blue Dot Holo Sight over anything else because of how clean it is. You get the benefit of the Holographic Sight’s huge aperture, but also have the precision of a Red Dot Sight. Equipping the Blue Dot on the Kilo 141 or Bruen MK9 will make the weapons feel laser-accurate.

The Blue Dot can be unlocked for both the Holo and Reflex sights, so here’s everything you have to do and the fastest way to do it.

How to unlock Blue Dot for Holo Sights

To unlock the Blue Dot for Holo Sights, you need to get lots of kills using them. Fortunately, you don’t have to do anything crazy, just get kills and headshots with a variety of different Holo Sights.

Here’s everything you have to do:

  • Get 200 Kills using the Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the APX5 Holographic Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the APX5 Holographic Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the PBX Holo 7 Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the PBX Holo 7 Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using any Holo Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using any Holo Sight
  • Get 3 kills without dying 150 times using any Holo Sight

How to unlock Blue Dot for Reflex Sights

Unlocking the Blue Dot for Reflex Sights will also require a plethora of kills.

Here’s everything you have to do to unlock the Blue Dot for Reflex Sights:

  • Get 200 Kills using the Operator Reflex Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Operator Reflex Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the Aim-Op Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Aim-Op Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the Viper Reflex Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Viper Reflex Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using any Monocle Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Monocle Sight
  • Get 3 kills without dying 150 times using any Reflex Sight
  • Get 500 kills using any Reflex Optic

Fastest way to unlock Blue Dot in Modern Warfare’s multiplayer

The quickest and easiest way to unlock the Blue Dot reticle is to play the Shoot the Ship playlist on Modern Warfare’s multiplayer.

This includes the two smallest and most chaotic maps MW has to offer: Shoot House and Shipment. While playing on either of these maps, you’ll constantly be fighting and can rack up an insane number of kills if the round goes on for long enough.

If these maps aren’t in 24/7 playlists, play extremely aggressively in regular Domination or Hardpoint using the necessary sight.

Fastest way to unlock Blue Dot in Warzone

If you don’t own Modern Warfare and just play Warzone, it will take more time. You should avoid regular Warzone when grinding for the Blue Dot as these challenges require a lot of kills, so a single-life battle royale game is the worst place to do this.

Warzone players dropping in

The RNG nature of battle royale games means that you could die before even getting your loadout, or survive the whole game but only meet five other players.

The best mode for you to do this in is Warzone Rumble. This mode is essentially Team Deathmatch inside of Warzone, where you’ll have the opportunity to get much more kills. Equip the necessary optic, and specifically go for the required challenge. It will still take a while, but this will maximize your time.

If there’s no Warzone Rumble playlist currently available, Plunder is the next best thing. In Plunder, you begin with your already chosen loadout and can redeploy to your heart’s content.

To make the most of your time in Plunder, you should solely focus on kills and not worry about collecting money to win the game. If you require headshots, take an extra second when the enemy is knocked to secure that headshot kill.


To summarize:

  • Equip the necessary optic for the challenge
  • Play Shipment and Shoot House in Modern Warfare’s multiplayer
  • Play Warzone Rumble in battle royale
  • If there’s no Warzone Rumble playlist, play Plunder

With these tips, no matter if you only play Warzone, you’ll be able to unlock the cleanest optic Modern Warfare’s weapons have to offer.
