Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare's Tomogunchi Is Confusing; Here's How To Feed It

Want to be the best death-dealing tomogunchi parent you can be in Call of Duty? It's harder than you think.


If you're been trying to be the best tomogunchi parent you can be in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, you might have realized that it's not entirely clear how you use kills, match wins, and more to grow your digital pal.

It seems you're not alone either. Modern Warfare's official reddit is teeming with questions about the tomogunchi, so much so that a developer from Infinity Ward has broken down exactly how to care for the pet on your wrist.

Now Playing: What You Should Know About Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Tomogunchi

Firstly, you want to make sure that you have both the Watch Interact and Check Watch gestures equipped, so that you can use the former to activate bonuses and the latter to see the status of your tomogunchi at all times. The bonus bar beneath the pixelated pet is directly tied to actions based on its current evolution, and you can bank what you've accumulated at any time to speed up your tomogunchi's evolution.

Here's what you'll need to increase the bonus meter at each stage:

  • Baby - Killstreaks
  • Child - Wins
  • Teen - Bomb plants
  • Adult - Winning and top 3 placement
  • Secret Evolution Form - Unknown currently

The four other tomogunchi statuses are each tied to specific gameplay mechanics:

  • Hunger - Kills
  • Dirty - Win Games
  • Unruly - Objective Score
  • Boredom - Activate Killstreaks

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is still expected to get its own Battle Royale mode (supposedly called Warzone) in the near future, with multiple leaks giving glimpses of the map, the increased 150-player count, and more. A new Warzone gameplay video leak has revealed much more about the game, and a countdown clock points to a launch on March 10.
