Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Double XP Event Is Live, New Gunfight Variant Added
Season 1 winds down with another playlist update.
Season 2 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare looks set to kick off on February 11, with a recent teaser trailer confirming the return of a fan-favorite character. Before then, however, Infinity Ward has released another playlist update that's now live on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, alongside a double XP event.
With the end of Season 1 looming, you can make some extra progress on your battle pass from now until February 11. Gains on XP, weapon XP, and tiers are all doubled for the next week.
Gunfight has proved to be a hugely popular new game mode in Modern Warfare, and the latest playlist update introduces another variant of the hectic 2v2 mode. Face Off Grind combines Gunfight with the classic multiplayer mode Grind, which itself is a mixture between Kill Confirmed and Hardpoint. "This mash-up of play styles gives an intense fast-paced feel to the close-quarters design of the Gunfight arena," reads the official description.
Elsewhere, fan-favorites Shoot House 24/7 and Shipment 24/7 are both available at the same time for the first time ever. There's also a Hardcore playlist called Shoot the Ship that combines both Shoot House and Shipment, as well as Team Deathmatch, Domination, Kill Confirmed, and Headquarters being added to the 10v10 Hardcore Moshpit. Kill Confirmed and Headquarters are now available in the regular 10v10 Moshpit, too.
