This Week in Call of Duty® - August 17

All the intel on the happenings in Call of Duty

by Stephanie Glover on August 17, 2020

The Lead: Modern Warfare® and Warzone™ 

This week in Modern Warfare put your mid-range skills to the test, Faceoff on a Gunfight map mosh pit, and get more fast-paced frenetic action as Warzone Mini Royale continues for one more week. Plus, get Shadow Company Operator, Velikan, and more in Store this week. 

Play tight and tactical in Faceoff on a moshpit of traditional 6v6 Multiplayer modes played 3v3 on Gunfight maps. Secure the objective in Hardpoint and collect and deposit tags in Grind in this moshpit where smart play and communication will help you get the edge on the competition. The Faceoff moshpit includes a mix of Gunfight maps including Season Five’s Livestock. 

Experience mid-range mayhem in Multiplayer’s latest playlist moshpit. Take the fight to Oil Rig, Suldal Harbor, Cheshire Park, Hovec Sawmill, and Khandor Hideout for a mix of deathmatch and objective modes. Choose your weapons wisely and beware the long sightlines available on each map. 

A shadow of a shadow, Velikan is an Operator shrouded in mystery, but respected and feared for his skills on the battlefield. His ten-item bundle includes the ‘Megalith’ skin, two Legendary blueprints, a Finishing Move, vehicle skin, battle horn, calling card, and more. 

Grinch dons the ‘Forest Spirit’ skin in his new Operator bundle ‘Eloko’. The bundle includes a Legendary Crossbow and SMG, calling card, emblem, quip, and spray. Embrace the fighting spirit of the forest and pick up the ‘Eloko’ bundle in Store. 

Stay on the move with Cyber Attack Pro. This variant of the objective mode no longer requires players to revive teammates, instead respawns are enabled for a faster and more frenetic gameplay. Find the perfect balance between eliminating enemies and completing the objective, then work to lead your squad to the W.

Experience more Mini Royale, a chaotic, frenzied experience that captures the energy of the final minutes of a Battle Royale match. Also available this week Battle Royale Solos, Duos, Trios, Quads, and Blood Money Trios. If find yourself in the Gulag this week, you’ll be handed an arsenal from the assault rifle and SMG pool, so quickly snap to your targets and eliminate them to redeploy back into the match.
