Modern Warfare New Progression System – Enlister Ranks, Officer Ranks, And More

Published

on

Activision has officially detailed the Progression System in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which is a new system for Call of Duty. 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare does not feature prestige system. Rather, there’s a enlisted, base levels and then Officer Ranks in the game. 

There are 55 Enlisted Levels that players can progress through. Each unlocks a new reward. Once you reach Level 55, that’s the max Enlisted Rank in Modern Warfare. 

Beyond this is a new Officer Ranks feature. With this, there is 100 Officer Ranks that will reset every season. Officer Ranks give unique rewards at different levels – including select cosmetic weapon variants. 

This new system is being used in Modern Warfare as ranks can be tied to seasons while allowing users to keep their unlocks. Your unlocks do not reset in Modern Warfare, regardless of when the season ends and Officer Ranks reset. 

Here’s additional details from Activision Blog:

The Enlisted Ranks: Unlocking Elements of Multiplayer

When you begin your ranking up in Multiplayer (or in Special Ops), you begin in the Enlisted Ranks as a Private (Level 1).

Here, you have a choice between three default loadouts and a limited number of Killstreaks and Field Upgrades.

Unlocking Enlisted Ranks is the traditional Call of Duty progression path you may be familiar with: As you gain XP (experience points) through normal gameplay, you begin to climb through the Enlisted Ranks.

After unlocking two more default loadouts within the first two rank ups, you will reach Enlisted Rank: Private IV (rank 4). Achieving this gives you access to the Loadout menu, where you can create a custom loadout. Need more information on Loadouts? Read this article.

As you continue to gain experience and advance from Enlisted Rank 4, all the way to Command Sergeant Major V – Rank 55 – you will unlock new weapons, equipment and perks for your loadouts, as well as Field Upgrades and Killstreaks.

Ranking Up: Gaining XP

What are some of the ways you can gain XP through normal gameplay?

·      By completing Multiplayer Matches, and Special Ops Operations and Missions.

·      By completing Daily Challenges, short objectives that are usually able to be completed within a play session.

·      By completing Challenge Missions; multi-step objectives that also result in other rewards (see below).

·      By completing Camo Challenges; which unlock variations of base weapon camos and also offer you XP boosts.

·      Once Officer Ranks are unlocked, there are additional Officer Rank Challenges (see below).

The Officer Ranks: Seasonal Rewards and Badges of Honor

In this new Progression system, a player’s Enlisted Ranks of 1-55 are never reset and they will never have their functional items re-locked. Instead, players now progress into the new Officer Rank system:

Rather than having to reset your Enlisted Rank, Modern Warfare will introduce Officer Ranks, a seasonal ranking system complete with rewards and 100 ranks to progress through. When you reach Officer Rank 1, you receive a cosmetic Weapon Blueprint for your promotion.

Ranking up through the Officer Ranks requires the same gameplay completion practices as you previously utilized in the Enlisted Ranks: by earning XP.

Each time you level up within the Officer Ranks, you will unlock a special Officer Challenge. Similar to Daily Challenges, these objectives will reward plenty of XP upon completion, but also give you a special Seasonal Ribbon.

Earning 10 ribbons gives you a special Season Emblem, with each additional 10 ribbons evolving that emblem. Collecting all 100 Ribbons unlocks an animated Emblem, which serves as proof of getting the ultimate achievement for that season. Reach the maximum Officer rank, and expect to receive another cosmetic Weapon Blueprint.

The initial set of Officer Ranks will be available at launch: Once you complete all 55 Enlisted Ranks, you will arrive at Officer Rank 1.

The Player Level: Your Overall Accomplishments

Your ranking accomplishments showcase your dedication and talents at Modern Warfare, and these milestones are properly memorialized: Any Officer Rank, Officer Challenge Ribbon, or Seasonal Emblem are permanently recorded in the game. Just prior to the start of each new Season, your Officer Rank is reset so everyone starts the following Season on the same playing field.

Challenge Missions: Another Way to Rank Up & Earn Cool Rewards

Outside of normal gameplay, Daily Challenges, and seasonal Officer Challenges, another huge opportunity to earn XP for Enlisted Ranks, Officer Ranks, and Player Level is through Challenge Missions contained within the Barracks part of the Multiplayer Menu.

Challenge Missions within the Barracks are multi-step objectives that can be completed for XP bonuses and special rewards. These Challenge Missions must be activated within the Barracks Menu in order to complete them, and once activated, you will be notified when you complete each objective and when you complete the entire Challenge Mission.

At launch, there will be a variety of Challenge Missions available, with more to be released within forthcoming Seasons.

Challenge Missions may require you to play specific game modes or use a particular weapon class in order to complete them, so prepare for a variety of content to test all facets of your gaming prowess!

A Full Arsenal: Weapon Experience

Weapons, like Operators, can also be leveled up and gain experience, which unlocks a whole arsenal of attachments, weapon perks, and camouflage that can be equipped though the Gunsmith.

Defeating foes with a weapon you have unlocked through progression grants you weapon XP for that particular weapon. Earn enough XP for that weapon, and it gains a level. Note that levels for weapons are entirely separate from player levels and ranks; you will rank up your weapons independently.

Each weapon level will reward you with a new attachment – for example, a Muzzle, Optic, or Stock – a perk, or a camouflage for that weapon. These attachments and camos can be equipped within the Gunsmith.

Camos earned by leveling up a weapon unlocks the base camo for that weapon. After earning the base camo, a set of camo challenges is unlocked, allowing you to earn a set of colorful and cool-looking skins within a camo set for that weapon. In addition, camo unlocks earn you XP rewards.

With each weapon averaging 50 available attachments and having over 100 earnable camo patterns (including a few extra camos for those completionists out there), there is plenty to earn and accomplish within Modern Warfare, even before the first season begins!

Post-Launch Content

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is scheduled to have a number of seasons post-launch. Each post-launch season, which will have its own Officer Rank progression track, will bring a mix of new maps, modes, missions, community events, and other content to the game.

How to fix Call of Duty: Warzone Dev Error 6034

If ‘Dev Error 6034’ is preventing you from playing Warzone, follow this simple guide to drop back into Verdansk in no time.

Published

on

While Warzone Season 1 has seen a plethora of game-breaking exploits and bugs, one issue is preventing PC gamers from playing the battle royale altogether. Here’s how to fix the Dev Error 6034 issue.

Black Ops Cold War x Warzone Season 1 got off to a shaky start with the overpowered DMR 14, pay-to-win MAC-10 blueprint, as well as invisibility exploits and the return of stim glitches. These problems have now been fixed, but further issues have plagued CoD fans.

Xbox players saw the return of the ‘Blackout Trial Has Ended‘ screen, which Charlie Intel has covered a fix for, but ‘Dev Error 6034’ prevents PC players from playing Warzone and Modern Warfare.

The ‘Dev Error 6034’ bug first appeared in Modern Warfare shortly after launch, and because Warzone is connected to MW, battle royale players have encountered it too. If this frustrating error is preventing you from dropping into Verdansk, here’s how to fix it.

How to fix Dev Error 6034

It’s believed that Dev Error 6034 happens when Modern Warfare files become corrupted or unreadable. It sounds scary, but the fix is really quite simple.

CoD Warzone gameplay

A clean reinstall of the game is known to fix the issue, but there’s a much quicker solution. What you have to do is locate specific files in the Modern Warfare folder, delete them, then run a Scan and Repair which will replace the files with the correct versions.

The problem with PC gaming is solving errors like this can be daunting; nobody wants to go into the guts of their game and mess with files. Don’t worry, to make this as stress-free as possible, follow our simple walkthrough below.

  1. Open the Modern Warfare or Warzone installation folder
  2. Locate and delete the following files:
  • .patch.result
  • .product
  • vivoxsdk_x64.dll
  • Launcher.db
  • Modern Warfare Launcher.exe

After these files have been deleted, open Battle.net and run Scan and Repair on Modern Warfare/Warzone. It can be found through the ‘Options’ dropdown when the game is selected. These deleted files will now be replaced with working ones, and you can play Warzone again.

To prevent this problem from returning, make sure that Warzone downloads are uninterrupted. Leave your PC on until the download is complete, and avoid pausing and resuming the download when possible.

Call of Duty player uses musical instruments as a controller

Call of Duty player, DeanoBeano, plays the game with various musical instruments. We had the opportunity to have a brief Q&A with him.

Published

on

A Call of Duty player has discovered how to use musical instruments as a controller and has even killed enemy players with an assortment of different instruments.

Call of Duty is a game traditionally played with a mouse and keyboard or controller, but not for player DeanoBeano. Deano instead opts to play his Call of Duty games with musical instruments, such as drums, a recorder, and even bongos.

He posts these hilarious highlights to his Reddit and Twitter pages, going viral each time he posts his impressive clips.

You can see one of his most popular clips below, where he manages to snipe a player in Modern Warfare, while using the drums.

DeanoBeano is clearly a one of a kind player, so we managed to get in contact with him and sit him down for a Q&A, where he details how he’s able to play the game with instruments, how he started, and more.

Q: How do you manage to get instruments to work as remotes?

Deano: I use instruments that I plug in to convert midi signals to keyboard commands, and acoustic instruments I control using pitch to midi, then midi to keyboard commands. The bongos were actually a controller from the GameCube games Donkey Konga and Donkey Kong Bongo Bash. (referring to the above clip)

CI: Can you explain Midi to our readers?

Deano: Midi is a signal that electric instruments send to computers and other instruments and devices that control sound to connect with each other.

Q: What originally gave you the idea to play Call of Duty with instruments?

Deano: I started drumming to gaming montages live on twitch about a year ago, so there was always an ongoing joke that I actually hit the clips with my drums.

Eventually, in August I figured out how to hook up my drums as a controller and after I started doing that, I figured it would be fun to try other instruments and odd controllers too.

Q: What are your future plans? Any new instruments you want to try?

Deano: My plan is to keep making Cold War multiplayer as fun as I can. Playing with a normal controller (especially solo) can be really tiring because of SBMM. I’m always looking at finding new ways to play the game, and I plan on bringing this to other games too. I’ll be using some new instruments and controllers soon.

Q: What’s your favorite instrument to play in games?

Deano: The recorder is my favorite instrument to play with at the moment. It makes the game pretty challenging but every kill and clip I get with it feels so rewarding.

Q: Do you actually play any musical instruments?

Deano: I do! I started with piano when I was a kid and later on picked up drums and got a Bachelor’s degree in music on drums. I play a little bit of trumpet (and recorder I guess haha) but not much.

That’s the end of our interview with Deano. To see more of his content, you can follow him on Twitter and watch his Twitch streams, where he appears to be most active. He also occasionally posts highlights of his streams to his YouTube channel.

How to play TikTok’s viral custom Call of Duty Gun Game mode

Don’t miss out on the new viral TikTok Gun Game sensation in CoD: Modern Warfare and here’s how you can play the custom mode too.

Published

modern warfare squad gun game

A fascinating new variation of Gun Game has been created and gone viral on TikTok. The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare custom mode has been revealed and we have these crazy settings for you to try out yourself.

It’s a testament to the longevity of Gun Game that gamers can still find ways to make an already legendary game mode even better.

The simplicity of Gun Game is what makes it so addictive and keeps you coming back for more. Well, with this new bespoke set of rules you can now make the mode even deeper and infinitely more stressful.

Custom TikTok Gun Game mode in CoD

From the balanced and equal footing you all start out on to the skill needed to get a kill with every weapon, Gun Game is such a simple concept that never gets old.

Each player starts off with the same weapon and attachments and every time you achieve a kill with your random weapon, you advance to the next weapon. This continues until one player has gotten a kill with every weapon, but if you get knifed, you go back a weapon.

But one of its biggest assets is the fear and dread it can instill in you with the thought of being knifed. Gun Game is all about momentum and so often you’ll have one person surge to double-digits in no time at all, and someone languishing on the starting weapon.

Add in melee kills that can set you back a weapon and the pressure is real.

This takes us to TikTok user thedillygang who has imposed his creation on the Call of Duty community that he calls “Blood Pressure”.

The aptly-named Gun Game creation warrants its name because it will affect your biology, it will sternly test your friendships and relationships, and probably the strudiness of your controller.

@thedillygang

As requested, here’s our gameplay of “Blood Pressure”. Our hatred for eachother is unsurmountable. Duet this w y’alls gameplay😈 #fyp #cod #dilly

Gun Game “Blood Pressure” variation in Modern Warfare

  1. Scroll to “Private Match
  2. Then go to Trials & GameBattles at the bottom of Modern Warfare’s Multiplayer options
  3. Select Custom Game
  4. Make your way to Game Setup
  5. Choose a map
  6. Set mode to Gun Game – it can be found in Alternate Modes
  7. Go to Game in Game Rules and set the Time Limit to Unlimited
  8. Go to Player in Game Rules and set Max Health to 300 and Health Regeneration to Very Slow
  9. Go to Advanced in Game Rules and set Setbacks to 5 Weapons
  10. Select Option and make sure you save the mode for future use
  11. Play it and try not to throw your controller

Let’s be honest, if you’re playing this chaotic mode with your friends then it’s inevitable you’re all going to be trying to knife each other. So let’s reserve the violence for the video game, and enjoy this evil mode.

This can only be played in Modern Warfare at the moment due to the fact that Black Ops Cold War hasn’t added Gun Game yet. But when BOCW does indeed get the mode, then be sure to try Blood Pressure out.
