Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Multiplayer does not feature a mini-map in standard modes

Published

There’s no mini-map on by default in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Multiplayer across standard modes. This represents one of the biggest changes to a core functionality of Call of Duty in a while. 

Infinity Ward’s thought process in how they approached the design for this year’s game was taking a look at every single aspect of Call of Duty’s in the past and see what was added unnecessarily. 

For players that want the mini-map, the only way to enable it in standard modes is through Killstreaks. You have three kill streak options for the mini-map in Modern Warfare MP. First up is the Personal Radar, awarded at 3 Kills. This just pulls up the standard mini-map just for you if equip this streak. At 4 kills, it’s the regular UAV you know from past Call of Duty games. And at 12 Kills, the Advanced UAV makes a return showcasing more detailed information on the mini-map. 

We first played Modern Warfare MP at the Infinity Ward studios back in May, and my first reaction was “where is the mini-map?” For players just joining on board to the game, there’s no easy way to learn the maps and understand where to move without effecting match flow. Of course, you can press Start and see the map on the menu screen, but that takes away from the immersion of the overall game. When I asked back then, they reiterated that not many users actually noticed the mini-map being gone in their play testing sessions. 

But, after playing the game now twice, it’s evident that no always on mini-map basically changes how play as you have to be able to take on audio cues more effectively. The audio in the game is quite incredible with the new engine (although player footsteps are tad too loud for my liking).

‘More content’ coming to Modern Warfare as Season 6 ends

Published

While November 23 marks the end of the Season 6 Battle Pass in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, fans have been wondering about new content for the title.

There has been no official news on what’s next in terms of content for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare after Warzone’s integration with Black Ops Cold War.

The confirmation we have so far is that Modern Warfare will receive a new progression system to match the new system in Black Ops Cold War starting on December 10. Fans can learn more about the Progression system in a detailed blog post.

Now, an Infinity Ward developer has confirmed on Twitter that there is more content planned for Modern Warfare. He says that he’s not aware of the ‘official name’ of the new content, but more is coming.

It’s not clear at this time what the new content will be for Modern Warfare. Modern Warfare continues to be a very popular Call of Duty game, selling over 30 million copies in its first year. Activision has not outlined future plans for the game itself.

Season 6’s Battle Pass officially ended in Modern Warfare & Warzone on November 23. The pass reset timer says 0seconds left.

Warzone will officially be tied to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s system starting on December 10 with a new Classified Experience. Players playing Modern Warfare MP can continue to level up their overall player rank and access the Seasonal Prestige system. They can also contribute toward’s ranking up the Black Ops Cold War & Warzone Battle Pass, but content unlocked is only usable in Black Ops cold War & Warzone.

We’ll keep you updated as more information is announced.

How Modern Warfare progression will change after Season 6

Modern Warfare will integrate with Cold War in December. Here’s how that will work.

Season 6 of Modern Warfare ends on November 23, so what’s next for the title after integration with Black Ops Cold War?

Season 6 appears to be the final season of Modern Warfare. With the launch of Black Ops: Cold War, the focus has been shifted to the new title and Warzone.

It’s not the end of Modern Warfare, however. Season 6 ends on November 23. After that, fans will have to wait until December 10, when Modern Warfare and Warzone integrate with Black Ops Cold War.

This integration will bring a new progression system to the game. Read on to find out how the new progression system works and what’s next for Modern Warfare.

Modern Warfare progression

On December 10, progression will become unified between Black Ops Cold War, Modern Warfare, and Warzone. This means that you’ll now have one rank for all three titles. No matter which game you’re playing, you will rank up on all of them.

This new progression system combines Modern Warfare’s seasonal progression with the classic Prestige system. Every season, once you hit the maximum season level, you will begin your Prestige levels. Season levels will reset every Season, but your progress will resume from the highest Prestige you achieved in the previous Season. 

Your current level on Modern Warfare will be scrapped once integration begins. Your Black Ops Cold War rank will now become your rank on Modern Warfare. As you play either Cold War, Warzone, or Modern Warfare, your rank will increase.

Future of Modern Warfare

usually, once a new Call of Duty launches, the population of the previous game begins to dwindle. The majority of players move onto the new game, and only a hardcore few remain on the previous title.

Unified progression might change this. With Warzone being the connecting mode between Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War, weapons from both titles can be used in Warzone.

Warzone is free-to-play and allows players to use weapons from both games, even if they don’t own them. Leveling up weapons and unlocking camos is much easier in multiplayer, so players may return to Modern Warfare’s multiplayer to get attachments for use in Warzone.

Although Black Ops Cold War has released, it’s certainly not the end for Modern Warfare.

Black Ops Cold War UK opening week sales lower than Modern Warfare

Published

on

The first full week data from the UK on Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War sales are out, and the numbers are not as high as 2019’s sales.

The UK game charts, via GamesIndustry, reveals that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s digital downloads were up 39% over Modern Warfare’s 2019 opening.

However, the game’s physical sales were down almost 64% compared to Modern Warfare.

The first week UK charts saw Assassins Creed Valhalla debut at #1 in terms of physical game sales. Some report that this is due to Black Ops Cold War’s digital purchase incentives, and that the game’s physical edition was not available in certain retailers.

Combining the digital and physical sales from launch week, Black Ops Cold War debuts at #1 in the UK charts. But the game’s overall sales didn’t match Modern Warfare’s opening week in the UK.

Data shows the game’s first week sales are down 16% compared to Modern Warfare. Modern Warfare is one of the best selling Call of Duty games of all time. The game’s opening weekend in October 2019 saw $600 million in revenue. The title has gone on to sold well over 30 million copies to date.

And it’s become clear that Warzone’s success could’ve impacted sales for the new titles. Warzone’s integration with Black Ops Cold War is set for December 10. It could be that after the integration, Activision will see higher premium upgrades from players interested in the entire game’s experience.

Activision has not released opening week data for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The company only has said that the game’s day one digital sales were the ‘highest’ in franchise history.
