This Week in Modern Warfare & Warzone: 2XP & Store Bundles
Call of Duty Blog has posted the latest This Week in Call of Duty post highlighting what players can expect in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone for the week of September 21.
This week sees 24/7 Shipment and 24/7 Shoot House, and new playlists Deathmatch Domination + Drop Zone, alongside Gunfight 3v3 Snipers.
And, in Warzone, Warzone Mini Royale Trios is available.
This is also the final week of Season 5 in Modern Warfare & Warzone. Season 6 is set to begin Sept. 29, so Infinity Ward will add Double XP, Double Weapon XP, and 2X Tier Progression starting Friday, Sept. 25 at 10AM PT and ending with the Season 5 end.
This week will also see new store bundles for fans to pick up who want to customize their operators and weapons, including the Tracer Anime Pack and new Alex Bundle.
Here’s the breakdown from Activision Blog:
This week the Shoot the Ship-tember playlist is breaking off into 24/7 Shoot House and 24/7 Shipment, players can battle in a trio in Gunfight 3v3 Snipers, experience an objective moshpit in Deathmatch Domination + Drop Zone, and play in the weekend only Warzone mode – Mini Royale Trios. Plus, players will get Double XP, Double Weapon XP, and Double Battle Pass progression earn rate starting this weekend!
A double dose of objective fun is available in the Deathmatch Domination + Drop Zone mosh pit. In Deathmatch Domination, earn points for capturing objective and eliminating enemy players so OBJ and slayers can earn score. In Drop Zone, hold the objective to receive the gift of Care Packages and a flurry of Killstreaks that keeps the match interesting. All Care Packages are up for grabs, it just takes longer to capture enemy packages, but good things are worth the wait.
Get with your squad and battle in Gunfight 3v3 Snipers. Map knowledge is key to success in this sniper shoot-out as is teammate communication. Make callouts and watch the flag during Overtime. Pro-tip: Consider closing the distance and performing a Finishing Move while the enemy reloads for an epic Killcam.
Get a new look for Ghost in the ‘Beyond the Pale’ bundle with his ‘Dreadwood’ skin. The bundle also includes two Legendary blueprints – the Spanish Moss and Old Road – a watch, calling card, emblem, spray, quip, weapon charm, and gesture.
Put the enemy on notice with the ‘Notice Me: IV’ bundle. It’s included blueprint, Showcase, deals high damage and has extra oomph in both the range in accuracy category making this a sniper rifle worth noticing. In addition to the Epic Showcase sniper blueprint, players will also get a weapon charm, calling card, and emblem when they pick up the bundle in Store.
This weekend only, battle in Warzone Mini Royale Trios. A short, sweet, and intense variant, Mini Royale likens the experience to the first and final minutes of a standard Battle Royale match. Other Warzone playlists available throughout the week include Battle Royale Solos, Duos, Trios, and Quads and Plunder Quads. Then hop over to Multiplayer to choose between 24/7 Shipment or 24/7 Shoot House for your close quarters mosh pit mayhem. Whichever mode you choose, you’ll get Double XP, Double Weapon XP, and Double Battle Pass progression earn rate starting on September 25 at 10AM PT to September 28 at 10AM PT.

New Activision job listing states Warzone is coming to mobile
A new Activision job listing on the company’s site is stating that Call of Duty: Warzone is coming to mobile devices in the future.
The job listing – called Executive Producer, Features – says that the job is for “WZM,” which appears to be the codename for Warzone Mobile.
It also says that this job is for a “new mobile FPS in the Call of Duty Franchise.” “As Executive Producer, Features you will own product framing and player experience of a new AAA mobile FPS in the Call of Duty franchise.“
The listing states that this person has to “harvest, adapt and deliver the essential features from Warzone console and PC into their best mobile instantiation.”
Further, the listing states that this person needs to learn how to adapt Warzone into a mobile experience and understand what aspects of the mode need to carry over. The console experience can be somewhat replicated on mobile thanks to advancements in mobile development over the years.
“Improve upon the Warzone formula by proposing and producing mobile-specific additions and changes to features to ensure a best-in-class mobile experience that players will love.”
“Serve as primary point of contact on Warzone Mobile leadership team for clarity and decisions on user-facing features, UX and overall quality.”
Call of Duty: Warzone released on March 10 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC as a free to play game part of the Modern Warfare world. It will be expanded to connect with Black Ops Cold War this fall.
Call of Duty: Warzone has seen incredible success the last several months, with the game getting over 75 million players. A release on mobile would help expand the title to more regions worldwide where consoles and PCs are not as accessible.
Activision already has a mobile Call of Duty game, that is free to play and features its own Battle Royale mode. The BR mode in Call of Duty: Mobile has locations from the Modern Warfare and Black Ops mode combined into a singular experience.
This appears to be a different FPS mobile Call of Duty game that will bring Warzone’s experience to players on the go. It’s not clear who is developing this new Warzone mobile experience.
Stay tuned for any updates on this.
The job listing is viewable here.
