Activision Blog has posted the latest This Week in Call of Duty post highlighting what fans can expect in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone.
This week sees the launch of a brand new update for Season 3 in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone, which will feature new playlists updates, new features (new weapon camo + Gunsmith Customs), and a new LMG (earnable via challenges.
This week will see new store bundles, including a new outfit for Operators, and more.
Activision has also announced the latest Live From Warzone events featuring many different streams and more this week for fans to watch throughout the week on both YouTube and Twitch.
Here’s the details:
This week add a new weapon to your arsenal – the MK9 Bruen LMG, create insane new hybrid blueprint weapons with the update to Gunsmith, get on the path to earn a Mastery camo, experience close quarters action in the return of the ‘Shoot the Ship’ playlist, level up with a Double XP, Double Weapon XP, and Double Tier Progression earn rate, and more!
For this week’s update, owners of the full version of Modern Warfare will have two separate downloads in order to complete the update. Once the update is live, players will download the patch as normal. Once that is completed, when an owner of the full version of Modern Warfare tries to access Multiplayer, Special Ops, or Campaign they will be prompted to download the Data Pack DLC. During the Data Pack DLC download, you’ll have access to Warzone so, jump into a match of Battle Royale or Plunder. When the download is complete, players must restart the game to access all modes of Modern Warfare. Free-to-play Warzone users will not have a secondary download to download the Data Pack DLC with this update.
Expand your creativity to build lethal weapons from blueprints in your Armory with Gunsmith Customs. This update allows you to mix and match attachments from blueprints of the same weapon to create epic hybrid blueprints that have unique looks, styles, and capabilities. Get more details on Gunsmith Customs and suggestions on building your ultimate hybrid blueprint this week on the Games Blog.
