Infinity Ward has confirmed that Gunfight Tournaments feature will return at some point to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
The studio launched the Gunfight Tournaments feature in beta in late November for only one week to test out the feature and provide a weapon reward in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
The game’s tournament bracket system auto populates with the players and teams, and advances players based on wins throughout the tournament.
The studio has now confirmed that the Gunfight Tournaments will return to the game soon with new rewards to earn for players.
Infinity Ward did not provide an exact date for when this feature will return. The feature originally went live November 25 and was live for just one week.
As a refresher, here’s how the system works:
The tournament is single elimination with 32 players, 16 teams, and 8 rounds on the way to being crowned the victor. You advance with a win or go back to the lobby with a defeat. For each victory you earn XP and other rewards. For winning the tournament for the first time you can earn a high tier cosmetic reward and XP!
The tournament is bracket style, and you’ll be able to see the teams on both sides of the bracket. You’ll wait at a menu screen before the match and have a little bit of time to choose your Operator and discuss game strategy. Afterwards you’ll load into the game and play your first round. If you win, you’ll advance to the next round. Just note, you may have to wait in the lobby until your opponent finishes their match.
We’ll keep you updated with a potential release date as more information is shared.
