Published

on

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

The studio is continuing to look at the feedback from the fans on the spawn issues, working to fix a lot of the bugs including the Parties having to be disbanded, Cruise Missile issues, and more.

The studio also provided an updated schedule for Weekend 2 of the Beta, which begins Sept. 19.

FROM INFINITY WARD:

It’s the final full day of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Open Beta and we want to send our sincerest thanks to everyone who hopped online and joined the action. Since Thursday, you’ve been sending us your feedback all across social media, giving your honest suggestions and feedback, and we couldn’t be more grateful. We’ve been reading all of your comments and been discussing them here at the studio each day. It’s a heartwarming feeling to see so many of you invested in Modern Warfare and doing everything you can to help us as we look towards launch on October 25th. Thank you all so much!

Now, let’s look at some of the topics you’ve all sent our way since the start of day four:

You all have shared some pretty amazing and insightful feedback so far. Please keep in mind that if you don’t see your issue fixed by weekend two, please know that we’re working to polish all of the feedback by launch. This definitely isn’t all of your feedback, but let’s take a look at some of the issues we’re looking into…

  • Connecting to Online Services: Some players are unable to connect to online services. If you’re still having this issue, please feel free to PM me your PSNID so we can further investigate.
  • Weapon Attachments: In some cases, weapon attachments are not unlocking after reaching the required level. This is being investigated.
  • 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.
  • Recon Drone: There are two noted issues with this Killstreak. One: UI elements remain on the players screen after using the Drone. Second: Thermal function on the Drone causes the map below to become discolored.
  • Weapons clipping through the Operator Character Model: On occasion, the AUG will clip through the arm of an Operator when viewing in the matchmaking or Operator selection screen

BETA WEEKEND 2 SCHEDULE:

This weekend, we’ll be kicking off weekend two of the Beta. We’ve already hinted a bit at Ground War, where you’ll take on more enemies in an all-out battle of 32v32 on a new map, Karst River Quarry. Not only that…but we’ll be bringing more players into the fight with Crossplay.

  • Early Access: Xbox and PC – 10AM PST September 19th – 6PM PST September 20th. Also during this time is the Open Beta for PS4 players.
  • Open Beta: ALL PLATFORMS – 6PM PST September 20th – 10AM PST September 23rd

As a side note here, the timing of when the Open Beta goes live on Xbox One and PC was updated. Rather than going live on Saturday, Sept 21, the Open Beta on Xbox One and PC will begin Friday, Sept. 20 at 6PM PT / 9PM ET.

How to unlock the Sykov Pistol in Modern Warfare & Warzone Season 2

The Sykov full-auto pistol has finally been added to Warzone and Modern Warfare, so here’s how to unlock this powerful new sidearm.

Warzone Sykov Pistol

In a surprise update on April 15, the highly-anticipated Sykov full-auto Pistol was added to Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare, so here’s how to unlock this powerful new sidearm.

After players found the Sykov Pistol in Plunder, they were desperate to get their hands on this new Modern Warfare weapon. In an update on April 15, the Sykov Pistol was finally added to the game.

It’s described in-game as a “double-action/single-action sidearm” that “comes with a few custom gunsmith mods that make it an outstanding addition to any arsenal.” From gameplay, we know that these powerful modifications are the full-auto feature and the 80 Round Mags.

With the right attachments, the Sykov pistol is unstoppable at close-range. Here’s everything you need to do to unlock it.

How to unlock the Sykov in Warzone and Modern Warfare

How to unlock the Sykov in Warzone Season 2

The Sykov Pistol is easy to unlock in Modern Warfare and Warzone, you simply need to get 4 kills while using pistols in 5 different matches.

If you own Modern Warfare, this is the place to do it. Jump into small maps such as Shipment or Shoot House in Hardcore mode, use any pistol, and you’ll be able to one-tap other players with ease.

If you only own Warzone, the challenge will be more difficult but is still very manageable. We recommend jumping into Plunder with some of Warzone’s best pistols. The akimbo Diamattis are still powerhouses, and dual Renettis will also offer similar results.

Also, we recommend you finish the match for progress to count. Leaving the match early can cause issues with the progress not counting, so you can simply get your pistol kills then play on as normal until the match ends.

How to unlock Akimbo for the Sykov pistol

What makes the Sykov so powerful is its Akimbo perk. This isn’t unlocked as a regular challenge, you’ll need to get 3 kills in 5 different matches using the Mo’Money perk with the Sykov.

The challenge description is reportedly bugged and will tell you to use the Renetti, but you need to use the Mo’Money perk with the Sykov.

Again, this challenge is easy in Modern Warfare’s multiplayer. We recommend playing Hardcore Shipment and Shoothouse as you’ll get the kills in no time.

For Warzone, we recommend hopping into Plunder. Equip Mo’Money to your Sykov and take close-range fights and you should be able to get at least three kills.

The Sykov’s arrival follows three new maps being added to Modern Warfare – Killhouse, Al-Raab Airbase, and Drainage. The latter two have been removed but will be returning soon as they still needed more “love.”

The Sykov is also the first of the unreleased Modern Warfare weapons to have arrived in the game, with the CX-9 SMG and Raal LMG still scheduled to arrive.

Ranked up, the Sykov pistol is likely to be a dominant weapon close-range in Warzone, so if the issues with unlocking it are addressed, it’s worth utilizing the upcoming Double XP event to quickly unlock all of the attachments.

New Modern Warfare MP maps returning soon

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

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.

Drainage map Modern Warfare

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.

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.
