The gaming landscape has changed over the years with the incorporation of microtransactions and live-gaming services. Many games offer extra content – with cosmetics being a big proponent of this.

How to buy COD Points
You can be very flexible with how you buy COD Points as there are a few different ways to do so. To make sure you’re buying them for the right platform, just double-check with our guide on transferring COD Points across platforms.
There are four ways you can buy COD Points:
- PC players can purchase CoD Points on the Battle.net website
- PS4 & PS5 players can purchase CoD Points in the PS Store on their console, or on the PlayStation website
- Xbox Series X, Series S, or One players can buy CoD Points on the Xbox Marketplace on their console, or the official Microsoft Store website
- Select physical retailers stock vouchers and gift cards with a code that players can redeem for CoD Points.
Where to spend CoD Points
Spending your CoD Points is incredibly easy, with players able to purchase cosmetic bundles and Blueprints in the in-game store.
The stores are available in Vanguard, Warzone, Black Ops Cold War, and Modern Warfare, so you can kit out your character regardless of your preferred title.
Do CoD Points carry over across games?
The good news is that your CoD Points will transfer across your Call of Duty games, as they are linked to your Activision account.
Players who still have CoD Points in their account from Black Ops Cold War don’t need to worry, as they will automatically be in your account when turning to Vanguard.
What can I buy with COD Points?
Call of Duty’s currency is used to primarily buy two things: the Battle Pass for the current season and Bundles containing a variety of items.
A Battle Pass is a paid Tier system that allows regular players to earn dozens of extra rewards and cosmetics for essentially playing the game.
Vanguard and Warzone Pacific are currently in Season 1 at the moment. Both titles are currently running in tandem with each other and share the same Battle Pass.
It features 100 Tiers for players to smash their way through the course of Season 1, and if players are committed enough, they can actually earn enough CoD Points, through leveling up the pass, to get the next one for free.
You can buy the Vanguard & Warzone Season 1 Battle Pass via a couple of different methods:
- Purchase it from the Official Call of Duty website
- Buy it from the in-game store on your respective platform
The other main content you can buy is a wide range of Bundles and Operator Bundles. These special bundles vary in price, and each comes with its own unique items.
The collectibles you can expect to find are Calling Cards, Emblems, Operator Skins, Weapon Blueprints, Weapon Charms, and more.

CoD devs confirm “unplayable” Modern Warfare is finally going to get fixed
Modern Warfare was branded “unplayable” after the Warzone Pacific update broke the game, but Call of Duty devs have now promised fixes.
Although two years old, Modern Warfare still has a dedicated player base who were furious after December 8’s Warzone Pacific update made the game “unplayable” for many. A month later, CoD’s developers have finally confirmed they’re working on fixing it.
Call of Duty: Warzone is still tied to Modern Warfare so, whatever happens in Warzone, affects Modern Warfare. This has caused several issues in the past, with players unable to change their loadout mid-game and the FMJ Perk being broken.
It appeared to only get worse with the Warzone Pacific Season 1 update which completely broke Modern Warfare. It was labeled “literally unplayable” as players were suffering a plethora of bugs and crashes, and some couldn’t even launch the game.
Call of Duty’s developers have finally acknowledged the issues and confirmed they’re working on fixing them.
Modern Warfare players have been complaining that Modern Warfare is completely broken since the new Warzone map arrived. They’ve said that they can’t complete a match because of disconnects and crashes, and missing data packs are stopping some from launching the game entirely.
Raven Software hadn’t acknowledged the issues, and Modern Warfare players were worried they’d been left out to dry. But, Call of Duty’s devs have now addressed the concerns.
“Our teams are hard at work addressing the issues that are being experienced across Vanguard, Warzone, and Modern Warfare,” tweeted the Call of Duty account on January 13, 2022.
They said that “updates are being deployed as quickly as possible” but gave no timeframe for Modern Warfare’s fixes being implemented.
Many players were delighted that their complaints had finally been acknowledged, but said “actions speak louder than words” and other statements to that effect.
We’ll just need to wait and see how and when Call of Duty plans to fix Modern Warfare’s serious issues. They also recommend you follow Infinity Ward’s account, so perhaps these updates will come from Infinity Ward.

Call of Duty 2022: Modern Warfare 2 release date, modes, maps, Warzone integration, leaks
Here’s everything we know about CoD 2022 including its title, the release date, maps, game modes, and platforms.
There’s a ton of anticipation for Modern Warfare 2, and here’s everything that we know about Call of Duty 2022 so far, including the release date, a new mode called DMZ, and the game’s platforms.
Call of Duty fans are always eager to learn more about the next big title that will be released, and there is plenty of anticipation for the upcoming Modern Warfare 2. Information about the game is scarce but we do have some news to share.
While the developers haven’t revealed anything about Call of Duty 2022, we’ve been able to find out details like the release date, new game modes, platforms, and some interesting leaks.
Here’s everything we know about Call of Duty 2022.
- Call of Duty 2022 title
- Modern Warfare 2 release date
- Modern Warfare 2 maps
- CoD 2022 Warzone integration
- Modern Warfare 2 modes
- Modern Warfare 2 platforms
- Modern Warfare 2 campaign leaks
What is Call of Duty 2022’s title?
This information lines up with what Charlie INTEL has also heard about the 2022 Call of Duty game, although we’d caution that Activision can change the name at any point leading to the reveal.
Call of Duty 2022: Modern Warfare 2 release date
At the time of writing, it’s believed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be arriving sometime around November 2022. However, there is no exact release date confirmed for the game yet.
Going by Activision’s record, most previous titles in this popular franchise were released between October and November, so we expect to see Call of Duty 2022 come around the same time.
We’ll keep checking for any official release date announcements by the developers and will be sure to update this article once we have more concrete information.
Call of Duty 2022: Modern Warfare 2 maps
Both leakers RalphsValve and Tom Henderson claim that classic Modern Warfare 2 (2009) maps will arrive in CoD 2022.
In a video covering everything known about CoD 2022 so far, Henderson said that these maps have been taken from the scrapped Modern Warfare 2 Remastered, of which only the campaign released.
Here are the returning Modern Warfare 2 maps:
Favela would pit players against each other in enclosed areas while Terminal provided some excellent sniping opportunities to Call of Duty players during long-range combat situations.
Highrise led to tons of 360, no-scope montages and birthed several world-famous CoD clans and Shipment is so popular that it’s currently still featured in titles like Call of Duty: Vanguard.
However, these are currently just leaks, and we might see the addition of entirely different maps in the final game once it arrives.
Call of Duty 2022 Warzone integration
Call of Duty 2022 will integrate with Warzone in the same way that Black Ops Cold War and Vanguard has, but is expected to bring a brand-new map.

Alongside the leaked DMZ mode for Modern Warfare 2, VGC claimed that CoD 2022 will launch with a brand-new Warzone map consisting of classic maps from the Modern Warfare franchise. This map will reportedly also be used for the DMZ mode.
The integration should also bring across all of CoD 2022’s weapons.
Call of Duty 2022 game modes
Tom Henderson claims that Modern Warfare 2 will come with a brand-new game mode – DMZ. While we don’t know exactly what the game mode will entail, the leaker described this mode as “MWII’s take on Escape From Tarkov.”
Henderson believes the mode will have been in development for over four years by the time Modern Warfare 2 releases, and you’ll drop into several locations and will have to plunder through abandoned homes, buildings, vehicles, crates, and corpses. He also said that the area has been made up of maps from the original MW2 which act as POIs, and should also act as the new Warzone map.
From this description, it seems that DMZ will be one of the most grounded game modes in the upcoming title. Hopefully, it will make for an intense experience for Call of Duty 2022 players.
Attackers v. Defenders
Leaker RalphsValve has also claimed that MW2 will feature a Rainbow Six Siege-inspired mode called Attackers v. Defenders. However, leakers such as Tom Henderson have disputed the claim.
This mode will see players attack and defend objective sites while utilizing “hidden locations, booby traps and cameras.”
Attackers v. Defenders would have a revamped health system, and players are able to assign each of their squad members separate roles such as “Squad Leader.”
However, prominent CoD leakers TheMW2Ghost and Tom Henderson claim their sources say “it was a scrapped mode from MW19 and they haven’t heard or seen anything regarding it coming to MW II.”
Henderson did clarify that “It doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not coming, but I’m inclined to believe people working on the project/or with very good connections at the studio.”
These two modes are only leaks or rumors at this point, so have yet to be confirmed. We’ll be sure to update this article as soon as we learn some more official information about Modern Warfare 2’s game modes.
Call of Duty 2022: Modern Warfare 2 platforms
According to Henderson, Modern Warfare 2 will be available on both current-gen and past-generation consoles.
“It’s currently believed that this will be the last Call of Duty coming to past generation consoles, but it will ultimately depend on the console market conditions,” Tom Henderson tweeted.
Call of Duty 2022: Modern Warfare 2 campaign leaks
Back in September, individuals on Reddit and Medium blog noticed a back-end server opening into NVIDIA’s GeForce technology site that let them see the games being tested out on their servers.
One of the games by Activision and Infinity Ward was listed as “Project Cortez,” which is a possible codename for Modern Warfare 2. After this, some new potential plot details for Call of Duty 2022 were shared by VGC.
According to the leak, “Modern Warfare’s sequel will include a campaign involving US special forces fighting a covert war against Columbian drug cartels.” This was also backed up by Tom Henderson.
Henderson has also said that the AI will see significant improvements from previous CoD games, where they’ll act realistically to getting shot.
It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, and this information has yet to be verified by the developers themselves. Until they officially announce something, you should take this with a grain of salt.
