Call Of Duty: August 11 Patch Notes For Modern Warfare And Warzone

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone have received a new update that fine-tunes several weapons within the games. Senior communications manager Ashton Williams detailed on Twitter how weapons such as the FAL and M91 will receive increased damage, while a second patch–still to come–will also fix graphical corruption issues with weapons. The full patch notes from Infinity Ward can be found below for the update that’s out now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, but be aware that server issues are impacting the games right now. The game’s file size has grown over the last several months with huge updates, so ensure you have room on your system’s drive. This is especially important on PC, taking up more than 200GB.

The Holger light machine gun will also have increased damage range and ADS speed, while the Bruen MK9 will see its damage range reduced. General fixes have also been implemented for an error that players occasionally received when opening the weapon armory and an exploit in the Shooting Range trial.

Following the release of the update, Infinity Ward confirmed players are having trouble connecting to servers. The studio says it’s working to resolve the problem but didn’t offer any estimate for how quickly that might happen.

“We’re looking into an issue where some players are unable to connect to the servers. We’ll post another update when we have more information. Thank you for your patience,” Infinity Ward tweeted.

The second one will address a “graphical corruption issue” related to weapons. It will also fix a problem that caused the “Play Again” option to break.

There is no ETA on when these patches will arrive, however. We’ll report back with the full patch notes when they are published.

In addition to the ongoing updates for Modern Warfare and Warzone, Activision is preparing to announce this year’s new game, which is believed to be Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Recent teasers have suggested that Activision will further pull back the curtain on the new game this Friday, August 14. However, the official reveal of the new game is expected to come later.

2020’s new Call of Duty game is developed by Black Ops creator Treyarch and longtime Call of Duty support studio Raven Software.

Activision Hires Former Major League Baseball Exec To Run Esports, TV, And Movies

Gaming giant Activision Blizzard has made a big executive hire. The Call of Duty company announced that it has hired former Major League Baseball executive Tony Petitti to become the new president of sports and entertainment at Activision Blizzard, starting August 17.

Petitti will oversee esports and consumer products for Activision Blizzard, as well as film and TV. Petitti was previously the deputy commissioner and chief operating officer of Major League Baseball. Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick said Petitti has the “perfect blend of skills” to help the publisher reach its ambitions for esports and entertainment.

For his part, Petitti said, “It’s clear to me the company has an incredible opportunity to connect players and fans in new and innovative ways, and I’m excited to be joining the company at such an important moment in its history.”

Before his run at Major League Baseball, Petitti was the executive vice president and executive producer at CBS Sports (which is owned by GameSpot parent company ViacomCBS). He has won 13 Sports Emmy awards.

It appears there may have been some kind of shakeup at Activision Blizzard regarding its film and TV efforts. Before this, Activision had former Disney boss Nick Van Dyk serving as the co-president of Activision Studios, but his LinkedIn page says he left the company in December 2019. It’s not immediately clear if the other co-president, Stacey Sher, remains with the company. We have reached out to Activision in an attempt to get more details.

CoD: Modern Warfare, Warzone Playlist Update Continues Free Multiplayer, Adds Modes, More

Update: The playlist update outlined below is now live in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone across all platforms. Infinity Ward posted the announcement earlier today, spotlighting the biggest changes, including new game modes.

Don’t forget to read the patch notes for the August 11 update, which details a few general fixes and weapon adjustments. Modern Warfare’s multiplayer is still free to play until August 12.

Original story follows…

Some changes are coming to both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone this week on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. This includes multiplayer playlist updates, new blueprints, and more.

Free Modern Warfare Multiplayer Access Continues

For those who haven’t purchased the full Modern Warfare game yet, publisher Activision is continuing its Free Access Multiplayer period. Now ending on August 12, you’ll get to play Modern Warfare’s multiplayer for free across five different maps, such as Chesire Park and Petrov Oil Rig, as well as Shoot the Ship when the playlist offerings get updated on Tuesday, August 11.

No Caption Provided

There’s also a new mode in Modern Warfare called Bare Bones. As the name suggests, Bare Bones strips everything away and leaves you with pure Call of Duty multiplayer. There are no killstreaks, no field upgrades, no perks. It’s just you, your Operator’s skills, and your loadout.

Additionally, fans of Hardcore multiplayer can tackle a new Hardcore-specific playlist that features Hardcore Team DeathMatch, Kill Confirmed, and 24/7 Shoot the Ship. If you’d rather have something more personalized, though, 3v3 Gunfight Blueprints will also be available.

Warzone Playlist Update

Warzone also sees some playlist updates this week. There’s a “fast, chaotic, and tight-knit” Mini-Royale you can participate in that “captures the spirit of the final minutes of a Battle Royale match.” Activision didn’t clarify anything else about Mini-Royale, though.

Furthermore, Battle Royale Stimulus–in which you can respawn if you’re holding enough money when you die–has returned in the form of Solos, Duos, Trios, and Quads. Plunder Quads is also back.

New Call of Duty Blueprints

And of course, this week’s Modern Warfare and Warzone update also packages in new blueprints you can purchase from the in-game shop. This includes the Mace’s Executive Armorer bundle (which houses two Legendary blueprints, the Golden Hew melee hatchet, a voice quip, and more) and the Poison Dart bundle (which features Legendary blueprints, a calling card, animated emblem, and more).

In other Call of Duty news, Activision has started mailing out mysterious boxes to people. Rumors began circulating that the publisher might reveal this year’s Call of Duty game, but it turns out the contents within the boxes are just more teasers. We know it’s coming this year, but it’s unclear what Call of Duty 2020 is.

Update: The playlist update outlined below is now live in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone across all platforms. Infinity Ward posted the announcement earlier today, spotlighting the biggest changes, including new game modes.

Additionally, the Shoot the Ship playlist has been added, and Weekend Warrior has been removed as part of a playlist update.

Call Of Duty 2020: Mystery Boxes Point To Teaser Site, Friday Reveal

There was some reason to believe that Activision was finally ready to announce the next Call of Duty game for 2020, but the reveal of Black Ops: Cold War–if that is indeed this year’s game–will have to wait. The mysterious boxes sent out to certain streamers and fan sites seem to contain only more teases, rather than a proper announcement. But the latest development–a teaser website–may point to some kind of news coming on August 14.

An announcement has seemed imminent for some time, but that accelerated recently. The latest update to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone added a suspiciously Black Ops-like teaser that would randomly appear during matches, and some sites began receiving packages from Activision with contents embargoed for today. We got one of our own–see some images below–while sites like Charlie Intel have also received them. In all cases, these are slide projectors with various slides, although the specific slides seem to vary by outlet.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4Gallery image 5Gallery image 6Gallery image 7Gallery image 8

What’s In The Box?

Those images aren’t exactly a Black Ops: Cold War logo or fact sheet–instead, they include what look like satellite imagery, maps, and assortments of letters, among other things. There’s nothing explicitly detailing what to expect from the new Call of Duty game or even when to expect an announcement. Presumably, fans will be digging into these to uncover some secrets that await. We’ll report back as more emerges, although technical issues have rendered aspects of this process more challenging than you might expect. Charlie Intel had issues with slides being out of focus, while Chaos’s unit seemed to have a broken light.

Summit Map Connection

Further analysis of these images have revealed that one looks a lot like the multiplayer map Summit, which was previously seen in several of the Black Ops games. Certain slides also resemble elements on the Summit map. This could be purely coincidental, or it could be a deliberate link to the Black Ops series. There’s still nothing definitive to take away from any of this, but it’s possible that there is still more to find.

Treyarch Teases

Perhaps in response to the Summit connection being established, Treyarch’s official Twitter account has changed its cover photo. Charlie Intel notes these are the mountains behind the Summit map.

Treyarch’s cover photoTreyarch’s Instagram story

Following that, Treyarch’s Instagram account posted a story with the image above. It’s another mystery, although the Hangman-esque lines at the bottom may be pointing to yet another teaser, in the form of a website.

CoD 2020 Teaser Website

Players have uncovered pawntakespawn.com, which is a URL that would fit in the Instagram story above. The site is home to a (mostly) static image of some old technology, including a television set and computer. There’s also a flashing time that reads 12:00, but stare at it for long enough, and you’ll see “08-14.” That may point to some kind of reveal this Friday, August 14. If so, we’ll need to wait a few more days for the big unveiling. There may be other hints in the image–for instance, the background features what looks like a map, possibly from Warzone–but so far nothing concrete has turned up.

CoD 2020 teaser website

While Black Ops: Cold War is expected to add this year’s Call of Duty campaign and new multiplayer elements, Warzone is here for the long haul. Activision has already specified that the free-to-play game mode will stick around long-term and adapt alongside each new game release. That’s in part, no doubt, to the massive success of Warzone. It has led to a massive player count and soaring revenues for Activision.

Free Call Of Duty: Warzone DLC For PS Plus Members Is Available Now

Season 5 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone began last week, introducing changes to the battle royale map, new game modes, challenges, and more. Like usual, PlayStation Plus subscribers can snag a Combat Pack for free, which is exclusive to PS4 until October 1.

The Combat Pack comes with a bunch of unique cosmetics, led by the Epic Zane Footballer skin–a fitting addition considering Season 5 opened up the Verdansk Stadium. To unlock the skin, you’ll have to fulfill one of two conditions: win a match in Warzone or get the Juggernaut in Modern Warfare’s multiplayer. Neither task is particularly easy, as earning the Juggernaut requires a 15 kill streak. If you don’t already have Zane unlocked as an Operator, you’ll get him by unlocking the skin.

Here’s the full list of items you’ll get in the new Combat Pack:

  • Epic Zane “Footballer” Skin
  • Epic “Injury Time” Watch
  • Epic “On the Volley” Weapon Blueprint
  • Epic “Stunning Strike” Calling Card
  • Epic “The Sparks” Charm
  • Epic “Sparks Pride” Emblem
  • 60-minute Double XP Token

While PS Plus isn’t required to play Call of Duty: Warzone, having a PS Plus membership can get you the above free DLC as well as free games each month. August’s PS Plus freebies include the new breakout battle boyale game Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered.

Warzone players can also check out a traditional multiplayer playlist for free until August 12 and save on Modern Warfare all week. To celebrate the free access period, Modern Warfare is on sale for $39 at the PlayStation Store.
