Modern Warfare Remastered has gone “free to play” for Playstation Plus players as one of the free games for March. This means a lot of new players, so it’s a good time to go over the game’s Supply Drop system.
Modern Warfare Remastered plays nearly identically to the original release, but the game does feature a new Supply Drop system along with CoD Points.
The game includes several different ways of obtaining items for customization as well as the 12 new weapons added to the game.
MWR includes three different currencies: CoD Points, Parts, and Depot Credits.
CoD Points – These work the same as every other Call of Duty game in recent memory. Buy them with real world money and spend them on Rare Supply Drops (200 CP per Drop).
Parts – This currency is earned from opening Supply Drops. You can get Salvage for obtaining duplicates as well as individual set amounts from the Supply Drops. Similar to Overwatch’s Coins or Infinite Warfare’s Salvage. Rare Supply Drops include “Bonus Parts.”
Depot Credits – These serve the same purpose as Black Ops 3’s Cryptokeys. You earn them by playing Multiplayer matches in MWR. The more time you spend within a match, the more Depot Credits you will earn. You can typically receive between 0-4 per match.
Supply Drops & Collections
MWR’s Supply Drop system is split into three “Operations.” Arctic Wolf, Lion Strike, and Copperhead. Each Operation’s Supply Drops include items from that Operation’s Collections.
The Days of Summer Items have been tied to the Copperhead Supply Drops and the Shamrock & Awe items have been tied to the Lion Strike Supply Drops.
You can purchase a Common Supply Drop for 10 Depot Credits, Exclusive Event Drops for 30 Depot Credits/200 CP, and a Rare Supply Drop for 30 Depot Credits/200 CP.
Rare Supply Drops and Exlcusive Event Drops guarantee 1 Rare item or better and have an increased chance of dropping Legendary or Epic items. It recommended to buy Rare Supply Drops unless you are simply trying to quickly grab a small amount of Parts from a Common Supply Drop for an item.
Collections are made up of items found within the Supply Drops, but you can go view and buy each item separately with the use of Parts. If you have enough Parts for a specific item within a collection, you can buy it directly instead of hoping for it to pop up from a Supply Drop.
The game includes a total of 208 Collections with over 1500 items in all. Better get to grinding.
The game’s Collections include items such as Calling Cards, Emblems, Reticles, Weapon Camos, Characters, and more.
Each Operation includes a set number of Collections () and each Collection has a full set bonus item. Once you’ve collected all the items in a Collection, you will unlock the set item. These are typically the most prestigious items in the game and include the added “DLC” weapons.
Each Operation also contains a “Operation Bounty” which is unlocked once you’ve obtained all items within that Operation. For example, the Operation Bounty for Copperhead is the Captain Price “Copperhead” character.
The Armory displays all of the game’s Supply Drop items by category. You can view everything you’ve unlocked here as well as buy specific items that you have not. All items can be previewed before purchase.
Many of these functions can also be done from the Collections Tab.
Lawyer gets in trouble with judge for not playing Call of Duty
In a lawsuit involving Activision’s Infinite Warfare title, a lawyer earned the disapproval of a jude for not playing enough Call of Duty.
After failing to conduct proper research for an active lawsuit, a judge has irritatingly deemed that a lawyer has not played enough Call of Duty.
It’s safe to say most people assume that playing video games would have very little impact on proceedings in a courtroom. However, this specific lawsuit involving Activision and game developers Brooks Entertainment proves that with a little more Call of Duty experience embarrassment could have been avoided.
Of course, embarrassment is not the only thing that could have been avoided as there’s no doubt Brooks Entertainment spent a lot of time and money when they decided to sue Activision in 2021.
According to legal intelligence news site JD Supra, The lawsuit involved a Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare character who primarily appeared in the game’s campaign by the name of Sean Brooks. Brooks Entertainment alleged the likeness between Sean Brooks and their character Shon Brooks went beyond just similarly sounding names.
They claimed that “Shon Brooks and Sean Brooks both had unlimited resources and missiles; they bring thieves to justice; they traveled to Mars, and both games had scripted game battle scenes take place in a high fashion couture shopping center mall.”
Demonstrating a clear understanding of their source material, it didn’t take long for Activision to point out that several of the claims made in regards to the characters’ likeness were factually misrepresented.
After an Activision lawyer played through Infinite Warfare’s campaign they declared: “it was immediately apparent to me that many (if not virtually all) of the factual allegations in the Complaint were not accurate.”
For starters, they pointed out that Sean Brooks is not the main character of Infinite Warfare as Brooks Entertainment alleged, and neither do they share any physical similarities. Furthermore, Sean Brooks does not take part in a scripted battle scene inside of a shopping mall as the plaintiffs suggested.
On July 12, 2022, the judge eventually agreed with Activision’s statement and dismissed the lawsuit. To make matters worse the judge also, “ordered the plaintiff’s counsel to reimburse Activision for the reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs that it incurred in the litigation.”
In a humiliating turn of events, the judge claimed that the “Plaintiff’s counsel could have easily verified these facts prior to filing the factually baseless Complaint, just as the Court easily verified them within the first hour and a half of playing the game.”
Not only can CoD fans appreciate that high-quality zinger from the court, but the lawsuit proved that not playing enough Call of Duty could be something you come to regret!

Call of Duty fans vote for their favorite Modern Warfare Campaign
The Modern Warfare CoD series has some memorable Campaigns, but which game does the community think offers the best experience?
Call of Duty fans are voting for their favorite Modern Warfare campaign of all time, and it’s no surprise to see which titles are coming out on top.
With Modern Warfare 2 on the way, Call of Duty fans are feeling nostalgic. The community loves discussing and debating previous CoD titles, especially those who have been playing the games since the start.
Even younger fans who have fallen in love with modern CoD titles like Warzone, Modern Warfare (2019), and Black Ops Cold War may have gone back to the previous installments to see what the hype is about.
Regardless, most Call of Duty fans have their opinions about which game had the best Multiplayer, but what about the best Modern Warfare Campaign?
With four titles to choose from, our Twitter page asked fans to vote in a poll for their favorite campaign.
As of July 29, Modern Warfare 2 is in the lead with 49.3% of the votes, with Modern Warfare (2019) and Call of Duty 4 coming in second and third respectively.
It’s no surprise to see the original MW2 winning the votes, as it has some of the most memorable Campaign moments in CoD history, such as the No Russian mission and the devastating death of Ghost.
Perhaps Modern Warfare 2 (2022) will take over its predecessor and become a fan favorite, as players may even get to play the Campaign earlier than expected.

CoD devs reportedly working on “open world RPG” with Infinity Ward job listing
A job listing from Infinity Ward Poland hints at the Call of Duty developers working on a new open-world RPG.
A new job listing from the Call of Duty developers suggests that Infinity Ward’s Poland office is working on a brand-new open-world role-playing game (RPG).
Open-world video games are extremely popular because of the opportunities they provide to players for exploration of large and detailed maps, with titles like Grand Theft Auto 5 being extremely successful.
Now, a new job listing from Infinity Ward Poland appeared for a short while, suggesting that the Call of Duty developers are currently developing a brand-new role-playing game (RPG) with an open-world structure.
In a now-deleted job listing on the Infinity Ward careers page, Activision were looking for someone with experience making “non-linear narratives in open-world games” to work on a “narrative and cinematic experience in an open-world RPG.”
While the developers didn’t reveal what his project is about, the Narrative Director position in the post placed an emphasis on “story, characters, lore, and world-building” for the game that’s in development.
At the time of writing, it’s unconfirmed what exactly this “unannounced AAA project” is called, and one possibility is that it might be a new Call of Duty title as Infinity Ward have never released a game outside of that series.
It’s also possible that this open-world RPG might be an entirely new IP that has no connection to the Call of Duty franchise. We will probably learn more details as the game’s development progresses.
As exciting as this sounds, it’s worth keeping in mind that this is all just speculation based on the now-deleted job listing, and we’ll need to manage our expectations until Infinity Ward officially announce the game.
