Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Pulls Controversial OK Sign Gesture

Infinity Ward, developer of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone, has removed an in-game gesture that has been culturally associated with white supremacy.

The OK gesture, made by forming the pointer finger and thumb into a circle, has been replaced with a new one called Crush during the game’s latest mid-season patch. Although not specifically mentioned in the patch notes, players quickly discovered the change (spotted by Eurogamer) given that the gesture has been widely used for humiliating opponents unfortunate enough to be the final kills in multiplayer matches.

The gesture was originally co-opted in an attempt to fool the public over its importance as a hate symbol. Since then, however, the gesture has had its meaning warped, so much so that the Anti-Defamation League now recognizes it as an “expression of white supremacy.”

The symbol and its hateful message has seen a resurgence in the wake of recent Black Lives Matter protests–a movement which Infinity Ward and Activision have publicly supported. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare featured an in-game message drawing players’ attention to the movement, while its developer vowed to take stricter action against racist players and community members.

GameSpot has reached out to Activision for comment.

What's New In Call Of Duty: Warzone And Modern Warfare This Week?

It’s a new week, and that means Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and the battle royale game Warzone are being updated once more with new playlists and more microtransaction bundles.

Activision provided an overview of the week’s new updates in a blog post, and we’ve highlighted the most notable parts below. They include the addition of some new modes across both games, while the 200-player Warzone playlist sticks around for now.

New Modes And Playlists

Starting with the new modes, Gunfight Tournaments makes its way back into rotation this week. In this mode, teams of two players each try to win four games before losing one to claim victory. Even if you’re knocked out, you’ll still earn XP and other rewards. The Realism Gun Game mode is also set to return this week.

Bomb Plant Moshpit is coming to Modern Warfare

A new playlist coming to Modern Warfare this week is Bomb Plant Moshpit. This playlist features a series of bomb-planting modes such as Search & Destroy and Demolition. Also in Modern Warfare this week are other playlists such as Dirty Old Houseboat–which features Rust, Shipment, and Shoot House 24/7–along with the regular Ground War mode that’s staying in rotation.

The existing Warzone modes–Solos, Duos, Trios, and 200-player Quads–will remain available in the game this week. Additionally, Plunder Blood Money is staying in the mix this week for Quads.

New Bundles

Players looking for new stuff to buy for Modern Warfare and Warzone can pick up the SERE Kit, which comes with two weapon blueprints–the Alabaster assault rifle and the White Light sniper rifle–along with a new calling card.

The other new bundle is Blood in the Water, and it comes with a weapon blueprint for the Feeding Frenzy shotgun that features a the image of a shark and its teeth on it.

In other news, Warzone’s Season 5 update is rumored to make major changes to the map.

Call Of Duty League Championship Will Be Held Online

Activision has announced that the upcoming Call of Duty League post-season schedule–including the Championship–will be held as a virtual tournament, not an in-person LAN event as has been the case in the past. The announcement is not a big surprise, as the regular season took place online due to the COVID-19 crisis. With the pandemic still gripping the USA and other parts of the world, this year’s event has moved to an online-only setup.

“Due to continuing health risks associated with COVID-19 and our collective priority focus on protecting the safety of our teams, players, league staff, and partner personnel, the remainder of the season will be held online,” Activision said in a news release. “This decision was made with great care, communication, and consideration over the course of many discussions.”

To support this change, the League is giving all competitors a “universal camera setup” that will be switched on for the entirety of matches. This will give League officials the ability to ensure players are not keeping things above the line. “The cameras will provide visibility for league officials to view and check each competitor’s console, controller, and monitor as needed,” Activision said. “Once a match reaches an official ready check status, players will need to be seated and on camera.”

Since the start of the online-only tournament this year, teams have had the ability to veto servers if they don’t feel comfortable playing on them. For the post-season, teams will be able to veto a server five times for each match, which is more than during the regular season. “By adding more options, we have increased the probability of getting the best possible server for both teams,” Activision said. “Additionally, with more servers in play for each match, there will also be more fallback options if there’s an unexpected issue.”

Finally, Activision said it is beefing up its production, technical, and officiating teams to try to be better prepared “to handle any and all issues that might crop up in an online competition environment.”

More details on this new online setup for the Call of Duty League championships will be announced soon.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone remain very popular, with the battle royale game just recently releasing its big Season 4 Reloaded update. A new Call of Duty game is coming this year, and it’s rumored to be a Black Ops title, but Activision has yet to announce it. That’s notable because this is the first time in more than a decade that Activision has not announced the year’s new Call of Duty game in May or June.

Call Of Duty: Warzone Gets Patriotic Flyovers For July 4

Call of Duty: Warzone has gotten a new update with some patriotic flair for Independence Day. While you’re waiting on the Warzone lobby, you can watch the skies for a jet flyover with colored smoke trails like you’d see in an air show.

The fansite CharlieIntel tweeted a look at the jet flyover with red and white stripes. The sky is also littered with fireworks which may be difficult to find this year in real life due to events being canceled in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

Call of Duty stories often focus on the American military, in part as a coalition with militaries from allies like the UK. Activision has also closely tied the series with American military veterans with moves like its Call of Duty Endowment, a non-profit that helps veterans find civilian jobs after ending their service.

If your holiday weekend includes playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare or Warzone, you can pick up Double XP through July 7. The next big seasonal changeover is coming in August and may include some big map changes.

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Gets Juggernaut Royale Trios Update

Following the release of the big Call of Duty: Modern Warfare/Warzone Season 4 Reloaded update, Infinity Ward has made a few other small changes.

First, a playlist update for Modern Warfare makes a changes to what’s available to play. The Shoot the Ship playlist has been removed, while Shipment (5v5) and Shoot House (8v8) have now been separated into individual playlists.

Additionally, Modern Warfare has received a “small patch” across PS4, Xbox One, and PC that fixes two issues in particular. The Realism Moshpit was, in some cases, failing to rotate modes as it should have–but that is fixed now. Second, the CDL playlist was “not functioning as intended,” which has also been fixed.

The Juggernaut Royale Trios playlist has also gone live in Warzone. It will be available until July 7.

The Season 4 Reloaded update’s biggest new feature is a limited-time 200-player Warzone mode. The update also nerfs the overpowered Grau weapon, while a new Spotter Scope item helps players move through the map without flashing the familiar “glint” that exposes their location. This is all among the content recently announced as part of the upcoming Season 4 roadmap.

Fore on the Season 4 Reloaded update, check out the full patch notes.

Looking ahead, Infinity Ward will kick off a double XP weekend for Modern Warfare and Warzone starting July 2 at 10 AM PT. The double XP will apply to standard XP, weapon XP, and Battle Pass XP.
