This Week in Call of Duty® - August 10

All the intel on the happenings in Call of Duty

by Stephanie Glover on August 10, 2020

The Lead: Modern Warfare®

Experience Modern Warfare Multiplayer free for all, as the Free Access Multiplayer Extended Weekend continues until August 12 at 10AM PT, get back to the basics in the Barebones moshpit, fight with your trio in 3v3 Gunfight blueprints, and get close quarters combat in the popular 24/7 Shoot the Ship playlist. 

Haven’t had a chance to experience MW Multiplayer yet? The first weekend of Season Five keeps on giving as Free Access Multiplayer continues. Battle on the latest maps and some community favorites across a mix of modes in the free access Multiplayer playlist. On August 11, the playlist will update to Shoot the Ship – a double dose of close quarters on Shoot House and Shipment.  Check out our blog for tips from transitioning your Warzone game to Multiplayer. 

Bare Bones strips away any of the add-ons and leaves you with signature Call of Duty combat in its purest form. No Killstreaks, no Field Upgrades, and no perks – just an Operator and their weapon. Choose your armaments wisely in this game mode mosh pit and rely on strategy, tactics, and gunplay to best your opponent. 

Want to try out some blueprints before you add them to your Multiplayer or Warzone Loadouts? Grab your mates and play 3v3 Gunfight Blueprints to test out the tactics you can utilize with these weapons. Take advantage of the smaller playspace and be careful when you go for the Overtime Flag. 

Get a fearsome gold look in the ‘Executive Armorer’ bundle for Mace. Don the suit of gold and jump into action with two Legendary blueprints: Mother Lode and Royal Coffer (shown above) with gold tracer fire. Also, included in the bundle the Golden Hew melee hatchet, charm, sticker, and a voice quip. 

Go wild with the ‘Poison Dart’ weapon blueprint bundle featuring the Galapagos and the Anole. Both weapons focus on dart-like control and accuracy, so you can hit the bullseye of your target. The bundle also includes a calling card and animated emblem.   

Mini-Royale – fast, chaotic and tight knit combat is available this week in Warzone. Communication and weapon versatility are key to this frenetic mode that captures the spirit of the final minutes of a Battle Royale match. Also, players can battle in BR Solos Stimulus (auto-redeployment if players carry a certain amount of Cash at elimination), Duos, Trios, Quads, and Plunder Quads. 

In Multiplayer, Hardcore enthusiast can get a double dose of deathmatch gameplay in the Hardcore TDM and Kill Confirmed playlist or revel in the fan-favorites and fast-paced nature of 24/7 Shoot the Ship.
