This Week's CoD: Modern Warfare, Warzone Playlist Update Makes Tons Of Changes
New playlists, Legendary weapon blueprints, and more abound in this upcoming Call of Duty update.
Another week is upon us, which means more content additions and adjustments are on the way to both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. There are quite a few changes in the latest update, including a selection of playlists, new blueprints, and charity DLC items.
First up is Modern Warfare, which is seeing a bevy of changes this week such as some alterations to the game's multiplayer moshpits. Gun Game has its own collection of Gunfight maps now, and two game modes--Deathmatch Domination and Drop Zone--get their own dedicated playlists. Furthermore, two specific maps--Shoot House and Shipment--also have their own 24/7 moshpits that mix and match a variety of modes.
There is also the Tracer Pack: Purple bundle available for purchase in the game's store, which comes with a Legendary AR and SMG, a charm, sticker, vehicle skin, emblem, and calling card. Additionally, Raines now has a purchasable Lumbertactical bundle that features a character skin, a Legendary LMG and shotgun blueprint, and the Hatchet melee weapon.
Finally, in honoring National Military Appreciation Month, developer Infinity Ward is releasing two limited items--the Fearless Pack and #CODEFearless t-shirt. The Fearless Pack includes an assortment of items for Modern Warfare and Warzone, such as an Operator skin, weapon blueprint, calling cards, emblems, and more. Meanwhile, the t-shirt--a real item you can wear that retails for $32--features the Call of Duty Endowment's logo emblazoned on the front. 100% of the profits made from t-shirt sales will go directly to the Endowment.
Next up is Warzone, and Infinity Ward is making some substantial changes to the game. This includes removing an assortment of modes, such as Battle Royale Trios Classic and Reinfected Ground War, and adding Plunder Quads.

Infinity Ward is enabling double XP, double weapon XP, and double Double Battle Pass tier progression across both Modern Warfare and Warzone. The double XP event kicks off this Friday, May 29 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET and runs until June 1 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET.
Some new content is coming to Call of Duty Mobile as well. While Capture the Gold has come to an end, the Once Upon A Time in Rust seasonal event that brought that limited-time mode is still running. Maps introduced as part of this season are still available in the Featured section of the Multiplayer lobby, three new weapons (the Pharo, Locus, and Cordite) are still earnable by completing events and challenges, and more.
In other Call of Duty news, Sony has announced that 2017's Call of Duty: WWII is one of PlayStation Plus' free games for June 2020, and despite it still being May, the game is actually available to download for free right now. We've also learned that the next entry in the Call of Duty franchise, this year's alleged Black Ops: Cold War, will be officially revealed sometime soon.
