Regular Bounty Contracts removed from Warzone following Most Wanted addition

Published

on

It appears Infinity Ward has removed the classic Bounty Contract from Call of Duty: Warzone following the newest update and replaced it with the Most Wanted Contract in-game, which has caused many fans to be upset.

The new update, which dropped on April 28, brought in a brand new contract called Most Wanted. This contract makes it that your team becomes the bounty for every other team still in-game. If you survive the bounty time, then the reward is bringing back all of your fallen teammates immediately.

However, by adding this contract, Infinity Ward appears to have also removed the standard Bounty Contract from Warzone completely. Fans can only find the Most Wanted contract in-game.

Streamers have responded to this by asking why Infinity Ward would think removing it would be a good idea. Ninja said the regular contracts are “high risk and reward” and were “well balanced.”

Teepee goes on to say it is a “very very bad decision” in a tweet. Call of Duty League Caster Joe “Merk” Deluca also commented on it being removed:

Infinity Ward has not said why they removed the regular Bounties from Warzone or when they plan to bring it back. Standard bounties were a nice way to get money while finding enemy teams on the map.

Published

on

Activision and Infinity Ward announced that Season 6 for Modern Warfare and Warzone begins on Tuesday, September 29.

The company released a new cinematic trailer for Season 6, unveiling the new operators coming including Farrah and Nikolai.

The trailer also revealed the new Subway system coming to Warzone, allowing players a new way to traverse the map as they play.

Here’s a look at the Subway system:

Trailer:

The Call of Duty blog has provided more details on what to expect from the two new Operators, who are part of the upcoming Season 6 Battle Pass.

Farah

“This occupation must end. That we can all agree on, yes?”

The founder and Commander of the Urzikstani Liberation Force, Farah, grew up a fighter after surviving imprisonment by Roman Barkov. She’s an exceptional soldier and leader that’s known a lifetime of war. Her skills have been further honed with additional training with the SAS, and she’s led dangerous missions to fight off Al-Qatala forces and other regimes stationed in her country. 

Following the events of Campaign, Farah joins the Chimera of the Allegiance reuniting with Iskra, a former scout of hers. Farah is instantly unlocked at Tier 0 of the Season Six Battle Pass. In addition to Farah’s base skin, players can earn additional skins and other rewards by completing her Operator Missions. 

Nikolai

“Nikolai, you’ve been a bad boy.” “From you that’s a compliment.”

Nikolai is the leader of the Chimera, a PMC within the Allegiance. A long-time friend to Captain Price, Nikolai initially worked with Price, Kamarov, and Kate Laswell to build the Armistice to stop the rise of a new AQ. After the Armisitice collapse, Nikolai now takes the battle in his own hands to stop Zakhaev. 

Nikolai is a Russian patriot at heart with a deep love for his country only matched by his love for weaponry. He’s known as a fixer and can acquire most anything, anywhere. Despite his murky background, he’ll always choose what’s right when it counts. Nikolai is unlocked at Tier 100 of the Season Six Battle Pass. Players can complete Operator Missions to earn additional skins for Nikolai and other rewards. 

Season 6 will begin on Sept. 29 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Alongside the new content teased in the trailer, there will also be more to come in MP.

Stay tuned for the latest on Season 6.

New Activision job listing states Warzone is coming to mobile

Published

on

A new Activision job listing on the company’s site is stating that Call of Duty: Warzone is coming to mobile devices in the future.

The job listing – called Executive Producer, Features – says that the job is for “WZM,” which appears to be the codename for Warzone Mobile.

It also says that this job is for a “new mobile FPS in the Call of Duty Franchise.” “As Executive Producer, Features you will own product framing and player experience of a new AAA mobile FPS in the Call of Duty franchise.

The listing states that this person has to “harvest, adapt and deliver the essential features from Warzone console and PC into their best mobile instantiation.”

Further, the listing states that this person needs to learn how to adapt Warzone into a mobile experience and understand what aspects of the mode need to carry over. The console experience can be somewhat replicated on mobile thanks to advancements in mobile development over the years.

Improve upon the Warzone formula by proposing and producing mobile-specific additions and changes to features to ensure a best-in-class mobile experience that players will love.”

Serve as primary point of contact on Warzone Mobile leadership team for clarity and decisions on user-facing features, UX and overall quality.”

Call of Duty: Warzone released on March 10 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC as a free to play game part of the Modern Warfare world. It will be expanded to connect with Black Ops Cold War this fall.

Call of Duty: Warzone has seen incredible success the last several months, with the game getting over 75 million players. A release on mobile would help expand the title to more regions worldwide where consoles and PCs are not as accessible.

Activision already has a mobile Call of Duty game, that is free to play and features its own Battle Royale mode. The BR mode in Call of Duty: Mobile has locations from the Modern Warfare and Black Ops mode combined into a singular experience.

This appears to be a different FPS mobile Call of Duty game that will bring Warzone’s experience to players on the go. It’s not clear who is developing this new Warzone mobile experience.

Stay tuned for any updates on this.

The job listing is viewable here.
