The Lead: Modern Warfare®

This week ready up for new content in Modern Warfare. Demolition, a tactical and explosive mode, comes online as its own featured playlist. Then, battle through chaos in the Shipment 24/7 playlist, Plunder Blood Money returns to Warzone, and more. Plus, check the Store this week for the ‘Guns Blazing’ bundle for the Mace Operator, an expressive new weapon blueprint and vehicle skin bundle, and more.  

Demolition represents tactical chaos at its finest, as players attempt to outsmart and overpower the other team. Do you all rush in together, or split up and cover the map? Should you run in and plant the bomb, or watch for enemies and provide cover? Get more insight including map specific tactics on Demolition this week on the Games Blog. 

The ex-U.S. Ranger and Allegiance fighter is back in Store in a new bundle – ‘Mace: Guns Blazing’. Alongside a menacing new skin for Mace, the bundle includes two Legendary weapon blueprints that can overtake enemies in both Multiplayer and Warzone. Check the Store and pick up the bundle to add this vicious Jackals Operator to your roster, if you don’t already own him, and a haul of new gear. 

Want to ride and fight in style? Get the ‘Anime Express’ bundle for weapon blueprints and vehicle skins that will add some color to all of your skirmishes. The bundle contains two Legendary weapon blueprints for close-range devastation and a skin for the Cargo Truck to express your style. 

Trios Plunder Blood Money returns to Verdansk, rewarding you with more Cash for taking down enemies. Or drop into Battle Royale in an all-out fight for survive in Solos, Trios, and Quads. Looking for more ways to gain XP, gear, or blueprints for your loadout? Complete missions, daily challenges, and weekly challenges to gain a boost to ranking up and other gear while battling it out in Verdansk. 

Get more action in the other updated Modern Warfare playlists. Practice your skills with a unique set of blueprints in Gun Game Reloaded. In this all-blueprint battle, get a kill with each weapon to progress through the set. Just don’t get melee’d or finished because you’ll suffer the humiliation of being demoted a weapon. Then, this ‘Ship’ just got a little more chaotic. Join the fun in the 24/7 Shipment playlist to play a mix of modes on this small map where the action never stops. 

#LiveFromWarzone

A weekly round-up of streams giving you action #LiveFromWarzone. Watch the combat in Verdansk that starts Tuesday of this week with the Bud Light Seltzer Charity stream. Tune in to the first charity stream on Tuesday, then the next on Thursday of this week. Both are available to watch on Twitch. 

Then on Thursday, the Warstream returns. The Call of Duty League™ pros of the Minnesota RØKKR and Dallas Empire took Verdansk by storm during the Warstream last week joined by a few celebrity faces in a match to see who could rack up the most eliminations during their streams. The RØKKR pros - Alexx and TTiny – alongside a few celebs put forth a good effort, but ultimately couldn’t compete with the Dallas Empire pros – iLLeY and Shotzzy – who won the match up with the help of CDL Caster Nameless and special guests. 

This week the Seattle Surge and the LA Guerrillas will duke it out in Warzone to see who can get the most eliminations. Both teams will be joined by more special guests and fight to get the most eliminations to come out on top and potentially beat the Dallas Empire’s reigning high score of 129 eliminations. 

Check the schedule to watch some of your favorite streams and pros this week #LiveFromWarzone.
