How To Get Early Access

Each of the weekends features an Early Access Period for the Open Beta for those who pre-order Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

If you’re pre-ordering Call of Duty: Modern Warfare digitally on the PlayStation 4 Store, Xbox One Store, or Blizzard Battle.net for PC, you do not need any additional codes. You will automatically be granted access to the beta once it becomes available for your platform.

If you’re pre-ordering Call of Duty: Modern Warfare at a retailer, the retailer needs to give you a code to redeem on the Call of Duty website. From what we’ve learned thus far, if you have redeemed a code from a retailer for the Captain Price Blackout Character, you should also be enrolled for the Beta Early Access code. You can redeem your code at http://www.callofduty.com/beta.

Once you’ve redeemed there, Activision will send you an email with the Beta Token to use on your platform to download and play the beta closer to the beta’s start date.

Pre-Loading

Activision’s FAQ notes that more information regarding Pre-Loading the Open Beta for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be available closer to the start date. In years past, pre-loading of the beta has usually been available for those who digitally pre-ordered the game. Beta Tokens for retailer pre-orders usually are sent at the start of the beta times, so there’s less time to pre-load the beta.

Beta Content

Activision and Infinity Ward have yet to confirm the full suite content that will be included in the Open Beta for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare beyond saying it’s an MP Beta.The Open Beta will most likely include customization content for fans, including Gunsmith.

Infinity Ward has confirmed that the Beta will feature Gunfight (the 2v2) mode playable during the Beta.

It’s not clear which other modes (6v6, 10v10, 20v20, or the Ground War) will be in the beta.


We’ll update this post as Activision shares more details on the upcoming Open Beta.

Stay tuned for the latest news on the beta as we get closer to September 12.

Published

on

Activision 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 4.

This week sees the continuation of Shoot the Ship, and new playlists like Ground War Reinfected, and more in MP.

And, in Warzone, Buy Back Quads playlist is available this weekend, alongside the standard BR Solos, Duo, Trios, and Quads.

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:

Modern Warfare®

Shoot the Ship-tember continues with more 24/7 action of the fan-favorite playlist! Also play tight and tactical on the Gunfight Face Off moshpit, avoid the infected in Ground War Reinfected, and stock up on cash this weekend to get right back into the match in Buy Back Quads.  

Get with your squad and battle in the Gunfight Face Off Moshpit. Enjoy standard Multiplayer modes like Cranked and Grind and be ready to employ a new set of strategies on these much smaller battlegrounds. Communication is key and consider crafting a loadout for the closer quarters of Gunfight maps. 

Get three blueprints, a Riot Shield, melee weapon, and more in the ‘Tracer Pack Anime Super’ bundle. Give your enemies a deadly dusting of pink tracer fire courtesy of the Legendary assault rifle, Legendary SMG, or Epic assault rifle included in the bundle. 

One of the Campaign’s heroes returns with a covert look in the ‘Alex: Death Stalker’ bundle. Get two Legendary blueprints for a complete silenced loadout and eliminate the opposition from the shadows in the latest threads for Alex. 

Keep back from the horde and use the map to avoid and push back the infected in Ground War Reinfected. This large-scale Infected mode challenges you to play together with your team and watch out for any attacks from Infected players. Or join the legion of Infected, rise up, and take down anyone left standing. 

Don’t stop fighting in Buy Back Quads, available only this weekend. Don’t spend all your money on Buy Stations instead have some handy to get back into the match, in case you face an unfortunate demise. Other Warzone modes available this week: Battle Royale Solos, Duos, Trios, and Quads and Blood Money Trios. 

#LiveFromWarzone

Activision files cease and desist letter against another cheat manufacturer

Published

on

Activision Blizzard continues to take down cheat manufacturer sites to stop the spread of different cheats for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone.

In August, the company filed a lawsuit against CXCheats for illegally creating cheats to be used in an IP owned by Activision Blizzard. CXCheats since deleted all cheats for Modern Warfare and Warzone in compliance with the lawsuit.

Now, in September, another large cheat manufacturer, GatorCheats, has said that Activision Blizzard has filed a cease and desist letter to stop them from making cheats for Call of Duty games.

The owner of GatorCheats said in their Discord that the first letter was filed by in May 2020, but they did not fully comply with that – opting to allow cheats to continue to be available.

In May 2020, Activision Blizzard’s attorneys contacted me via a Cease and Desist letter. Considering this event, I decided to act on my already pending decision to close all sales to new customers for my product relating to Modern Warfare and Warzone.

Activision has since escalated the requests. In Sept. 2020, the owner of GatorCheats claims that Activision Blizzard served another cease and desist letter. But, this time, a PI showed up at his residence with the letter and informed him of what Activision knows about their site and the owners behind it.

In September 2020, Activision Blizzard’s attorneys had another Cease and Desist letter hand delivered to me by who I assume was a PI, considering he knew my family members by name and made a point to showcase that he did. Also in September 2020, I received very clear communication in a follow up from Activision Blizzard’s attorneys communicating that they would litigate (file a law suit against me) if I didn’t comply with continuation of stopped sales as well as a complete stoppage of interaction with and updating of any products related to their client’s products.

The full letter from the owner states that he will “never make or create” a cheat for an Activision Blizzard product again after receiving the letters and a visit from them at his house.

Activision has not commented on their anti-cheat initiatives since June, where the company said they continue to ban players on a regular basis.
