Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Patch Notes For New Season One Update
You can start ranking up your Battle Pass now.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has released its first season of live content on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, Season 1, along with its first Battle Pass, as well as patch notes that cover all the changes that came along with the new content. A Battle Pass trailer also shows off some of the loot you can earn by purchasing it, but there's a ton of free new content--as well as a brand-new microtransaction store. Read on for a look at the tweaks and changes outlined in the patch notes.
The patch notes include several of the new additions that came with the season, along with some general fixes and balance tweaks. In particular the .357 Buckshot has been nerfed, with a reduction to both damage range and hip fire damage. Several of the changes are targeted toward improving the PC experience, with changes to both KBM controls and PC shaders. You can check out the full patch notes below.
This is the first Battle Pass for Modern Warfare, which Infinity Ward is using in lieu of map packs that split up the multiplayer player base. The battle pass has free tiers for items that impact gameplay like new guns, but several more paid tiers include cosmetic items to earn. The battle pass costs 1,000 CoD Points (roughly $10). Notably, all of this content arrives simultaneously on all platforms, rather than coming to PS4 first, as in the past.
Aside from the Battle Pass content, the patch adds a number of new maps (Port, Atrium, Cargo, and Crash), and two more maps (Vacant and Shipment) are coming during the season. It also adds Infected, Reinforce, and Gunfight OSP modes, while removing Gun Game, Shoot House 24/7, and 2v2 Gunfight Tournament modes from the playlist.

New optimizations or bugfix that require modifying the shaders can also trigger part or the totality of the shaders to be re-compiled.
