Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Crossplay Beta Day 3 Recap

Published

on

Day 3 of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Crossplay Open Beta on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC is wrapping up, and Infinity Ward has shared on Reddit a recap of the day, including what they’re looking into after Day 3 and more.

The studio is continuing to look at the feedback from issues on Xbox One and PC, crashes on other platforms, and more.

Infinity Ward added in the new Ground War mode and increased the Level to 30 to the Beta on Day 3.

The studio also provided an update on what additional content to expect going into Day 4 of the Crossplay Open Beta.

FROM INFINITY WARD:

We hope you’ve been enjoying the beta so far and we can’t thank you all enough for playing. It’s been an amazing weekend and we’ve loved reading your feedback and thoughts. We’ve seen MASSIVE amounts of players joining up today and it’s been incredible! Ground War seems to be a hit with all of you and we’re excited for you to see the variety of larger maps and higher player counts than the one you’re seeing in Beta.

Take a look at feedback we’re looking into from today along with what you’ll get your hands on tomorrow!

Feedback We’re Looking Into:

Since the Beta kicked off, we’ve been tracking your feedback and we’ll continue to do so throughout the weekend. This isn’t everything you’ve reported, but here are some of the bugs and fixes we’ve been tracking…

  • Blurriness on PC
  • Crashes on Xbox One and PC (please check existing threads on here if you’re experiencing one of these crashes)
  • If you’re experiencing any crashes on PC, please click HERE for support
  • Players were able to change their input device midmatch. We deployed a fix for this during the beta.
  • Xbox users: We know of a bug with invites and joining up from the Xbox Dashboard. While this is being investigated, you can still send invites and join up with friends within the game.
  • Staying together as a Party after a match: After completing a match as a party, some players are unable to find a new match and are stuck in the matchmaking lobby. We’re still looking into this issue, but in the meantime, disbanding your party and joining back up is a temporary solution while we work on a fix.
  • Spawning and Visuals: Spawning is currently inconsistent on some maps, so thank you for sharing your videos with us and sharing your feedback. We’ll continue to monitor the spawn system and we’ll update you if we deploy any changes. We will also be looking into lighting and exposure on various areas of the map, such as how you view dark rooms from the outside of a building and vice versa, for example.
  • Voice chat: Voice chat is inconsistent when joining up with players on other platforms. This is being investigated.
  • Ground War: In some cases, players would spawn or be ‘pushed’ under the map, allowing them to kill enemy players while being hidden. Friendlies are also able to spawn on under the map as well. We’re looking into how you spawn on your teammates as well as spawning in on vehicles in general, too.
  • Screen Tearing would occur for some players on Xbox; mostly after spawning in or after using a killstreak
  • VTOL Jet is able to fire through the roof of buildings and kill enemy players
  • Vehicle Audio and/or in-game music is sometimes the only audio being played regardless of being in a lobby or match
  • Suppressed M13 still uses normal audio sounds
  • Settings not saving on PC
  • FOV Slider setting reverting to default after loading into the map. This has been fixed.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

New Modern Warfare MP maps returning soon

Killhouse added to Modern Warfare, as two more maps to come soon.

Published

Killhouse in Modern Warfare

Following the Warzone Season 2 Reloaded update, Modern Warfare received three new maps – Call of Duty 4’s Killhouse, Al-Raab Airbase, and Drainage. Now, the two new maps have been temporarily removed but will return soon, and Killhouse still remains.

Although Call of Duty games usually lose the majority of their player base when the next installment of the franchise releases, Black Ops Cold War’s joint progression system has given Modern Warfare fans a reason to stay. Even while playing 2019’s title, they will continue to increase their rank in Warzone and Cold War.

Modern Warfare’s content lifecycle was set to end in November 2020 with the release of Cold War, but as part of Warzone’s mid-Season 2 update, Activision treated fans to three new maps: Killhouse, Al-Raab Airbase, and Drainage.

Killhouse was, and still is, available in a 24/7 playlist in Modern Warfare’s multiplayer, but Al-Raab and Drainage were only available in private matches. Now, however, Al-Raab and Drainage have been mysteriously removed from the game.

Old-school CoD fans will remember Killhouse well as it made its debut in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare but has also been included in CoD Mobile and Modern Warfare Remastered.

This close-range map, inspired by CoD 4’s tutorial level, F.N.G, is set in a military training warehouse. Although the map is small, it has plenty of cover and obstacles to navigate between.

You can still jump straight into Killhouse by selecting the “Killhouse 24/7” playlist from the Modern Warfare menu.

Al-Raab Airbase map Modern Warfare

The other 6v6 map added in this surprise update was Al-Raab Airbase, but it could only be accessed through Private Matches. This map may also be familiar as it appears to be modeled after the Russian airbase Alex and Farah assault in the campaign mission, Proxy War. This map is relatively larger than CoD’s standard 6v6, with plenty of verticality and long lanes to snipe down.

A new Gunfight map, Drainage, was also added to Modern Warfare’s Private Matches. Similar to Airbase, Drainage is large for a 2v2 map, but it will also support 3v3 and other small team game modes. A bridge goes over the map as its standout feature, and there’s a ton of debris on the ground for players to use as cover.

These two maps will be returning to Modern Warfare MP “soon” Infinity Ward says in a new tweet. The maps needed more “love” before they could become available to play.

Infinity Ward never acknowledged the maps being added or taken away, so we don’t know if these are the only changes made to Modern Warfare.

We’re also still waiting for the Soap Operator Bundle the Sykov pistol to arrive in MW and Warzone.

Warzone players call for “Classic” mode with only Modern Warfare weapons

Many Warzone players feel that Call of Duty’s battle royale game could do with a mode that only allows the use of Modern Warfare weapons.

Published

Disgruntled Warzone players want to see the game incorporate a “Classic” mode that goes back to the game’s roots, using only CoD: Modern Warfare weapons.

The integration of Black Ops Cold War into Warzone really did change the game and its meta forever. Across Season 1 and Season 2, Warzone’s already stellar roster of guns received a massive boost and gave players a lot more options to choose from.

But these extras haven’t been to the delight of everyone, as some of them namely Cold War’s DMR, Diamattis, and MAC-10 have had a huge impact on Warzone. In response, some players are keen to see a mode that only makes use of the game’s original weapons.

It speaks volumes that most loadouts in Warzone Season 2 have featured either one or both of the FFAR and AUG.

Cold War and Warzone use different game engines, meaning that the guns don’t translate as well when they make the transition to a different game.

melon_b0y has alluded to this fact and is calling for Raven Software to accommodate frustrated CoD players.

He said, “Without the Cold War weapons, the game would flow a lot smoother and would bring back skill into gunfights, not just who shoots first. Not to mention that without the FFAR and AUG around to compete, the game mode would be more balanced.

I’m not saying completely remove Cold War weapons, but I think a mode without them would greatly improve the fun in Warzone and bring back some nostalgia as well.”

It’s an interesting concept that should definitely be considered. It certainly does feels like a lifetime ago that Warzone was only populated by Modern Warfare weapons and felt more balanced.

If this became a reality, you’d imagine that it would be supported by many players, and could result in players abandon the normal version of the game.

New Warzone leak reveals possible Sykov pistol release date

A Warzone date miner has revealed a potential release date for the upcoming dual wield, fully automatic Sykov pistol.

A new leak has revealed a possible release date for Modern Warfare and Warzone’s highly anticipated and feared full-auto Sykov pistol, also known as the Makarov.

Players have been waiting to get their hands on new Modern Warfare weapons that are expected to arrive in Warzone soon. After players could find the unreleased Sykov pistol in Plunder, many are looking forward to using it in their loadout.

Warzone data miner TailsDoll553 has revealed potential release dates for several upcoming Warzone and Cold War bundles. The standout piece of information is the release date for the Sparks Operator Bundle, which contains a new Operator and a Blueprint for unreleased full-auto Sykov pistol.

It’s highly likely that the weapon will be released along with the Blueprint for it, as Activision has recently done with the R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow and the ZRG 20mm Sniper Rifle.

According to TailsDoll553, Warzone’s new pistol is set to release on April 15. They noted that “these could be subjected to change at any time, but these are the most likely dates for the bundles.”

Many players expect this new pistol to become the close-range meta when it arrives. The akimbo Diamattis from Black Ops Cold War dominated all point-blank fights for their high fire rate and insane damage output, but the Sykov is set to be even more powerful.

Through the Gunsmith system, it can be customized to be wielded akimbo and made fully automatic with an 80 round mag. This is sure to melt enemies up close and because it’s a secondary, you can run it along with the Ghost perk.

As for the other weapons set to be arriving, the CX-9 SMG and Raal LMG, as well as the Soap Operator Bundle, TailsDoll553 said they couldn’t find any dates for their release as the date doesn’t appear to be in Warzone’s files yet.

As this is a leak, there’s no guarantee that the Sykov will release on April 15. However, by following our guide, you can try it out early in Modern Warfare’s Survival mode.
