Activision Blog has posted the latest This Week in Call of Duty post highlighting what players can expect in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone for the week of July 7.
This week sees the return of 2v2 Gunfight Tournaments, alongside the debut of Bomb Planted Moshpit in Modern Warfare MP. 200 player Quads will remain in Warzone this week as well.
This week will also see new store bundles for fans to pick up who want to customize their operators and weapons.
Read on below for the full breakdown from Activision Blog:
Gunfight Tournaments is back and, for those playing it for the first time, its premise is simple: win four games before you lose one, and you’ll walk away with some awesome rewards. Even if you lose your first or final round match, there is XP and other cool rewards to be earned. Need some practice? The blueprint Gunfight playlist is staying in the rotation, so shake off that 2v2 rust – maybe on the map Rust? – before you try to make that awesome new blueprint assault rifle your own.
Speaking of Plunder: the SERE Kit: Plunder Player Store Bundle is built for those ready to hustle for cash across Verdansk, as it comes with two blueprints – the Alabaster assault rifle and the White Light sniper rifle – that would work great in a Plunder loadout. Fun fact: the calling card in this pack, and other SERE Kits, is a recommended loadout when using the two weapons in the pack.
Rather sink your teeth into the enemy team regardless of game mode? Pick up the ‘Blood in the Water’ bundle and dive into your next match with the Epic Feeding Frenzy Shotgun blueprint.
That shotgun could come in handy for clearing bomb sites at point-blank range within the Bomb Plant Moshpit, the new playlist this week in Modern Warfare. Whether you choose to play your life count in Search & Destroy or go all-out on offense or defense in Demolition, this playlist can be a blast for those who love bomb-based game modes.
Realism Gun Game features blueprint weapons to cycle through as you only have yourself and your senses to rely on for survival and, hopefully, victory. Other Multiplayer playlists include the continuation of standard Ground War and the return of Dirty Old Houseboat (Rust, Shipment, and Shoot House 24/7).
Get your fix of Warzone modes this week with Battle Royale Solos, Duos, Trios, and, of course, 200-player Quads. Those who love Plunder/Blood Money can play that mode this week with their Quad.

Modern Warfare players disappointed with Soap Operator after long wait
The new Soap Operator is officially out for Modern Warfare and Warzone, but some players aren’t satisfied with the way he looks.
Modern Warfare and Warzone players have finally been gifted the long-awaited Soap Operator, but some believe it doesn’t quite look right.
For those who like the cosmetics, you may have been waiting for the new Modern Warfare Soap operator to drop. However, players don’t seem to be satisfied with it.
Ultimately many think that the new Modern Warfare Soap operator looks nothing like the original Soap from the original Modern Warfare series and wished he had a more similar look from the past.
The developers have either reworked the character and decided to change his appearance, or they have genuinely tried to recreate the classic Modern Warfare character and it just has not sit well with a large portion of the Call of Duty community.
When compared to the original Soap, they do genuinely look nothing alike, and you can see why people are jokingly calling this new Soap operator “shampoo/detergent.”
Players in the comments carried on the joke as well, with some saying: “That ain’t soap that’s deodorant.” Some were genuinely confused, asking: “That’s actually supposed to be soap?…”
Ultimately we think players are just dissatisfied with the detail in the character model, as the original Modern Warfare Soap has way more detail and depth, with a scar on his eye and a more recognizable face.
It’s a shame players aren’t happy with the new Modern Warfare Soap model. Hopefully, the developers can do something about it and give players more of a reason to buy the new operator.
For more on Modern Warfare and Warzone, stay tuned on Charlie INTEL and check out how you can unlock the new CX-9 SMG and how players are calling for the White Phosphorus killstreak to be removed or buffed.

Best CX-9 loadout for Modern Warfare & Warzone Season 4
Here are the best attachments and Perks you can run with the highly-anticipated CX-9 SMG in Warzone and Modern Warfare.
The long-awaited CX-9 SMG has finally arrived in both Modern Warfare and Warzone Season 4, so here are the best loadouts and Perks to use with it in each game.
The CX-9 was leaked alongside the Sykov Pistol, with players being able to unlock the weapons in both private matches and even Warzone. Devs teased the CX-9’s arrival in both the Payload gameplay trailer and Season 4 Reloaded patch notes, and now it’s arrived.
Players feared the CX-9 would be the next overpowered weapon, but devs have brought it in line with the Season 4 meta. It’s still extremely powerful in both Warzone and Modern Warfare multiplayer and is well-worth unlocking.
Here are the best attachments and perks to run with the CX-9 SMG in both Warzone and Modern Warfare multiplayer.
Best Warzone CX-9 loadout
Best Warzone CX-9 attachments
- Barrel: CX-38S
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Stock: CX-FR
- Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
- Ammunition: 50 Round Drums
The CX-9 SMG is great in those close-quarters engagements, but due to the random nature of Warzone, we’ve built it to be a little bit more versatile.
To start, the CX-38S barrel has two major benefits. It’s already got a Monolithic Suppressor attached, which frees up a slot, and it improves almost every aspect of the weapon. You’ll see the CX-9 has a more effective range, recoil control, and your shots will be hidden from the minimap.
Next, we’ve added the Tac Laser and CX-FR stock. Your CX-9 will now be much quicker, allowing you to snap onto enemies even if they take you by surprise.
The Merc Foregrip is always a solid choice for Modern Warfare SMGs, as it improves both recoil control and hip-fire accuracy. And finally, the 50 Round Drums will allow you to down and kill multiple enemies without having to reload.

Best Modern Warfare CX-9 attachments
- Barrel: CX-38S
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Stock: CX-FA
- Ammunition: 30 Round Mags
- Perk: Sleight of Hand
This CX-9 is built almost purely for speed, but with a larger magazine and longer barrel for taking out targets at medium range.
To start, we’ve opted for the CX-38S barrel which improves almost every aspect of the CX-9. You’ll see a huge boost in damage range, bullet velocity, and even recoil control – while having your shots suppressed. The only downside is a slower ADS speed, which we’ll correct with the rest of the attachments.
Modern Warfare’s engagements usually take place in the confines of 6v6 maps, so you want a bit more speed with your weapon. To do this, we’ve opted for the Tac Laser and CX-FA stock. With these, your ADS speed, movement, and weapon stability will see a welcome improvement.
And finally, we’ve added the 30 Round Mags and Sleight of Hand Perk. The 30 Round Mag gives a solid boost to magazine size without slowing you down too much, and Sleight of Hand vastly increases your reload speed to keep you in the fight. If you want more bullets in your mag, you can always take the 50 Round Drums instead.
Best perks to run with the CX-9
Best Warzone CX-9 Perks
- Perk 1: E.O.D
- Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
- Perk 3: Amped
E.O.D will help you survive a barrage of explosives, keeping you in the fight at all times. Overkill will allow you to take the CX-9 alongside a long-range weapon such as the Krig 6, and then you can take Ghost from your next loadout to hide from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.
Finally, the Amped Perk allows you to quickly switch between weapons so you’re never caught defenseless.
Best Modern Warfare CX-9 Perks
- Perk 1: E.O.D
- Perk 2: Ghost
- Perk 3: Battle Hardened
Again, E.O.D is vital to ensuring you don’t get taken out by a well-placed Frag Grenade or Semtex. Then, the Ghost Perk will make sure you can always remain stealthy when an enemy pops a UAV.
Last but not least, Battle Hardened significantly reduces the effect of Stuns and Flashbangs, so you’re never rendered defenseless by Tactical Grenades.
How to unlock the CX-9 in Warzone & Modern Warfare
The CX-9 is a Modern Warfare weapon, so you won’t be able to unlock or use it in Black Ops Cold War. Luckily, it has an easy unlock requirement: Get 2 Longshot Kills while using an SMG in 5 different matches.
Because this is Modern Warfare, you don’t need to finish the match either. You can just get two longshot kills with an SMG, back out, and repeat until you’ve unlocked the weapon.

How to unlock CX-9 in Warzone & Modern Warfare
Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare players can now unlock the CX-9 SMG to dominate all of their enemies, and here is how you can do it.
After a long time of waiting, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone players can now officially unlock the CX-9 SMG to add a new weapon to their loadouts, so here is how to unlock the CX-9 in Warzone and Modern Warfare.
The CX-9 SMG has been a major topic of discussion in the Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare communities, as the weapon has been leaked, teased, and available for a brief time in the Call of Duty battle royale before being removed without any official word.
However, August 3, 2021, saw this highly-anticipated SMG finally be added to the games officially along with the Soap Operator.
With this in mind, here is how you can unlock the CX-9 in Warzone and Modern Warfare.
How to unlock CX-9 in Warzone and Modern Warfare
Players will find that they have two different options to acquire the CX-9 in both Call of Duty games.
Your first option is to complete an in-game challenge that will grant you access to this powerful SMG once you have completed it. You can find the challenge for this SMG below:
- Modern Warfare Multiplayer/ Warzone: Get 2 Longshot KIlls while using an SMG in 5 different matches.
However, if you would like to get your hands on this SMG faster without completing the challenge above, there is another way to acquire this weapon.
How to get Serac CX-9 blueprint
Players can unlock the CX-9 instantly by purchasing the Soap Operator bundle in the store for either game, which will grant you access to the Serac blueprint for this SMG.
This Serac blueprint had been previously found in the files for both games, so its debut has been long-awaited by the Call of Duty community.
The Soap Operator Bundle that contains the Serac blueprint will cost you a total of 2,400 COD Points.
