Modern Warfare and Warzone June 29 Patch Update 1.23: Season 4 Reloaded

Published

on

Infinity Ward has released the latest patch update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

The update is between 22-32 GB for those who own both Modern Warfare and Warzone. For those who own both and want to play MP after this update, you will be required to download an additional 3.5GB data pack. Once the new update is done, it will take up just minimal additional space.

If you just own Warzone (free to play), the update will be between 22-30GB. Once the update is done, the overall game footprint since will be reduced.

The new update includes the new 200 player BR Quads, new Operator, new Sniper, new MP map, new modes, and more for the game. More details on Season 4 Reloaded is here.

PATCH NOTES:

PLAYLIST UPDATE

WHAT’S NEW:

200 Player Warzone!

Verdansk will now be able to hold up to 200 players. Jump into Battle Royale Quads with 200 players!

Supply Run Contracts!

Upon activation, you and your squad (if applicable) will be directed to a nearby Buy Station. Reach it within the time limit to get a discount on Buy Station purchases.

Spotter Scope!

Think of this as a high-powered scope without the glint; this re-usable scope allows you to scan the environment around you and mark enemies without being detected. Perfect for scouting ahead, the Spotter Scope is a great tool for Operators who want to plan their next move while keeping a low profile.

DATA PACK DOWNLOAD:

Please note that the Season Four Reloaded update will have a download size of approximately 22-36 GB for owners of the full version of Modern Warfare. Console owners must install a secondary download of approximately 3.5GB, then reboot the game to access Multiplayer, if desired. A reminder, console players can choose also to uninstall/remove other data packs (e.g. Special Operations), if no longer needed for a smaller overall file size. For detailed information on uninstalling/removing other data packs, read this article.

Once the Season Four Reloaded update is fully completed, it should minimally increase the overall digital footprint of the full version of Modern Warfare.

Existing free-to-play Warzone players will have a download size of approximately 22GB-30GB, once finished there will be a reduction to the overall footprint on their machines.

New Modern Warfare Season 7 leaks: Soap, weapons, more

A fresh leak has revealed that season 7 of CoD: Modern Warfare is coming with the game set for a new Soap operator, new weapons, and more.

Published

on

cod modern warfare season 7

Despite the ongoing success of Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, Modern Warfare is set to continue with a brand new Season 7. A leak has hinted at a new Soap operator, some new weapons to use, and a lot more.

It seemed like we said goodbye to Modern Warfare back in September with the game set to make way for the next entry in the franchise – Black Ops Cold War. However, a new leak has suggested that not only is the game not going away, but it’s set to be bolstered by a slew of fresh content.

The exciting leak has given us some insight as to what we can expect with most areas of the game being targeted for an update.

Modern Warfare Season 7 release date

If the reported leak from popular YouTube personality TheGamingRevolution turns out to be 100% factual, then we can expect Season 7 to drop on March 11.

The specific dates arise from the LTM Zombies Outbreak mode ending on that specific date, and speculation that Modern Warfare season 7 will fill this void.

New Modern Warfare Soap Operator

We mentioned a while back that a Soap Operator Bundle had been leaked for Warzone, and now it’s finally being implemented.

The legendary Call of Duty Captain is set to return to the series and he’s bringing with him different variants, three new Legendary weapon Blueprints, and the usual selection of Charms, Emblems, and Sprays.

Fans of Soap will have to part with 2,400 CoD Points, each, if they want to add this new Operator to their collection.

New multiplayer maps in Modern Warfare Season 7

In addition to new Operators, we are also set for some new maps to duke it out on as the leak indicates that the game’s array of multiplayer maps will also be expanded upon as well.

First up is Al Raab Airbase and this brand new location appears to be a large outdoor map with a big hangar near the middle of it. Also on the way is a reimagining of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare’s DLC map – Killhouse.

The other two maps are extra Gunfight playgrounds called Townhouse and Drainage. They will both be exclusive to the Gunfight mode it seems.

New weapons in Modern Warfare Season 7 & Warzone

As is now the norm with any new weapons for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, the new leaked weapons for Modern Warfare will likely make an appearance in the battle royale shooter.

The first leaked weapon is the Sykov pistol that has already been leaked and the sidearm has been available for use for some time now.

We then have the CX-9 SMG which has also been out in the public for some time. To actually use it, you’ll need to achieve two longshot SMG kills across five different games.

Our final new weapon is the Raal MG. This LMG rounds off the set and it certainly won’t be an easy one to get a hold of. To get it, you need to have leveled up another LMG, and then you need to get five kills with the Scout Optic in seven different games.

As we’ve said, all this information comes from a reliable leaker, so this information isn’t completely certain. However, if Season 7 does turn out to be the case, then Modern Warfare players have a lot of content to look forward to.

Fastest way to unlock Warzone’s Blue Dot reticle

Here are the fastest ways to unlock Warzone’s cleanest optic, the Blue Dot reticle, for Holographic and Reflex sights.

Published

on

Warzone Blue Dot reticle

The Blue Dot reticle is one of the cleanest optics you can equip in Call of Duty: Warzone, but it takes a ton of time and kills to unlock. We’ve put together a guide on the quickest ways to unlock it.

Many streamers and content creators favor the Blue Dot Holo Sight over anything else because of how clean it is. You get the benefit of the Holographic Sight’s huge aperture, but also have the precision of a Red Dot Sight. Equipping the Blue Dot on the Kilo 141 or Bruen MK9 will make the weapons feel laser-accurate.

The Blue Dot can be unlocked for both the Holo and Reflex sights, so here’s everything you have to do and the fastest way to do it.

How to unlock Blue Dot for Holo Sights

To unlock the Blue Dot for Holo Sights, you need to get lots of kills using them. Fortunately, you don’t have to do anything crazy, just get kills and headshots with a variety of different Holo Sights.

Here’s everything you have to do:

  • Get 200 Kills using the Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the APX5 Holographic Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the APX5 Holographic Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the PBX Holo 7 Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the PBX Holo 7 Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using any Holo Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using any Holo Sight
  • Get 3 kills without dying 150 times using any Holo Sight

How to unlock Blue Dot for Reflex Sights

Unlocking the Blue Dot for Reflex Sights will also require a plethora of kills.

Here’s everything you have to do to unlock the Blue Dot for Reflex Sights:

  • Get 200 Kills using the Operator Reflex Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Operator Reflex Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the Aim-Op Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Aim-Op Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the Viper Reflex Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Viper Reflex Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using any Monocle Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Monocle Sight
  • Get 3 kills without dying 150 times using any Reflex Sight
  • Get 500 kills using any Reflex Optic

Fastest way to unlock Blue Dot in Modern Warfare’s multiplayer

The quickest and easiest way to unlock the Blue Dot reticle is to play the Shoot the Ship playlist on Modern Warfare’s multiplayer.

This includes the two smallest and most chaotic maps MW has to offer: Shoot House and Shipment. While playing on either of these maps, you’ll constantly be fighting and can rack up an insane number of kills if the round goes on for long enough.

If these maps aren’t in 24/7 playlists, play extremely aggressively in regular Domination or Hardpoint using the necessary sight.

Fastest way to unlock Blue Dot in Warzone

If you don’t own Modern Warfare and just play Warzone, it will take more time. You should avoid regular Warzone when grinding for the Blue Dot as these challenges require a lot of kills, so a single-life battle royale game is the worst place to do this.

Warzone players dropping in

The RNG nature of battle royale games means that you could die before even getting your loadout, or survive the whole game but only meet five other players.

The best mode for you to do this in is Warzone Rumble. This mode is essentially Team Deathmatch inside of Warzone, where you’ll have the opportunity to get much more kills. Equip the necessary optic, and specifically go for the required challenge. It will still take a while, but this will maximize your time.

If there’s no Warzone Rumble playlist currently available, Plunder is the next best thing. In Plunder, you begin with your already chosen loadout and can redeploy to your heart’s content.

Warzone plunder

To make the most of your time in Plunder, you should solely focus on kills and not worry about collecting money to win the game. If you require headshots, take an extra second when the enemy is knocked to secure that headshot kill.


To summarize:

  • Equip the necessary optic for the challenge
  • Play Shipment and Shoot House in Modern Warfare’s multiplayer
  • Play Warzone Rumble in battle royale
  • If there’s no Warzone Rumble playlist, play Plunder

With these tips, no matter if you only play Warzone, you’ll be able to unlock the cleanest optic Modern Warfare’s weapons have to offer.
