CoD: Modern Warfare, Warzone Playlist Update Adds New Game Modes
A new Modern Warfare and Warzone update has brought playlist changes and removed the helicopter from Warzone.
Some new content is coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone this week on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Developer Infinity Ward announced that both games will see a playlist update, the return of a game mode, and more. [Update: Alongside this week's new playlists, the big news has been the removal of helicopters in Warzone's battle royale, as well as the release of a new update--check out the full Modern Warfare and Warzone patch notes for details on what that changed.]
In a weekly blog post, Infinity Ward confirmed that Modern Warfare will get a brand-new mode in Demolition. The mode, which is similar to Search and Destroy and will be detailed later this week, sees you "attempt[ing] to outsmart and overpower the other team." In Demolition, your team is tasked with either planting or defusing bombs. But where Search and Destroy only gives you one life, Demolition grants you respawns. The result is a frenetic battle of supremacy between those who destroy and those who prevent. The mode has made an appearance a number of Call of Duty games, from Modern Warfare 2 to Black Ops and beyond.
Elsewhere in Modern Warfare, the game's multiplayer playlist has been updated. In addition to the Shipment 24/7 moshpit, Infinity Ward has added the "all-blueprint battle" mode, Gun Game Reloaded. It's the same Gun Game you remember but with the caveat of sifting through "a unique set of [weapon] blueprints." And, of course, you will be demoted a weapon should you die by a melee or special finish.

Over in Warzone, Plunder Trios is replaced with Blood Money Trios. In this special game mode, you earn extra cash for getting kills and taking down enemies. Infinity Ward noted that completing missions, daily challenges, and weekly challenges on Verdansk will grant you "a boost to ranking up and other gear."
In other Call of Duty news, a glitch has been discovered that let a player turn the first-person shooter into a third-person shooter. Meanwhile, Infinity Ward confirmed that Warzone will get a Duos mode after some extensive testing.
