Patch Notes Released For Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare And Warzone Updates
Solo mode is now available in Call of Duty: Warzone, letting you dive in to a free-for-all with no teammates.
A new update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is now available, as is a playlist update for the game's multiplayer. Any Modern Warfare patch now also has the potential to impact Warzone, a standalone free-to-play battle royale game that is included in Modern Warfare as an additional multiplayer mode, and that happens to be the case here. It's a fan-requested change too--the addition of a Solo mode to Warzone, which originally launched as a three-person squad-based battle royale game like Apex Legends. [Update: A new set of CoD patch notes are now available for the March 26 update, which came after a short delay. Among other things, it introduces a brand-new map for free to all players in Modern Warfare, as well as a new Operator. There are also new weapons in CoD: Warzone.]
Prior to this update, the only playlist in Warzone allowed for teams of three to compete against each other (although you could, technically, join a match without any teammates). Now, you'll be able to do battle without having to worry about enemy squads or anything of the sort--you'll win or (more likely) lose based solely on your own actions. Whether that's the ideal way to play remains to be seen, but it's an option for those who are teammate-averse.
Elsewhere in the update, Modern Warfare's multiplayer has added Cranked Kill Confirmed, Mercenary Moshpit, and 10v10 Atlas Superstory 24/7 playlists. Additionally, alongside the recently added DLC, Gunfight has gotten a St. Patrick's Day theme.
In terms of fixes, Infinity Ward has made good on a recent promise, as kills in Warzone are now credited to the player who downed an enemy. Previously, the player who finished off the downed player was awarded the kill.
