Developer Sledgehammer Games is adding daily challenges to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, offering players a chance to capture specific rewards for returning to the game's single-player and multiplayer modes.

The studio says the new challenges, which are similar in scope to the Destiny Daily Heroics, offers "a new way for players to earn extra XP and Supply Drops, or exclusive pieces of loot". These daily challenges will range from completing specific game mode objectives, or reaching a certain amount of kills with a specific weapon type, or other such modified challenges.

However, it appears the new challenges are only available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, skipping last-gen systems altogether.

Each day, players will find an updated "Supply Drop Challenge" displayed in the Find Match menu, as well as the Challenges menu. Completing these feats will reward users with a Supply Drop, which can contain various rewards such as weapon variants, to unique helmets, armour, loadouts and exoskeletons.

Alternatively, Supply Drops could also offer a piece of a new exoskeleton design, called the KVA Recon (pictured below).

Alex Jessup, the Associate Concept Artist who worked on the creating the gear, said the design for the KVA Recon gear "was intended to be bold and high-contrast while still feeling grounded. The matte green on white was inspired by winter gear, and the dark-on-light makes it stand out while still looking military.”

He added: “Instead of trying to be flashy, I wanted a minimalistic utilitarian look, much like actual recon equipment.”

Daily challenges come as part of a new patch released across all systems. The patch varies from platform to platform (with last gen consoles not including the Daily Challenges, for example), but the general patch notes can be found below. Go here for a list of system-specific patch notes.
