With the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare just days away, hundreds of the game’s customization options and cosmetic items have been leaked. 

The anticipation surrounding the launch of Modern Warfare has reached a boiling point, as its October 25 release date continues to draw near.

As is usually standard in the days leading up to a Call of Duty title’s release, massive leaks have begun surfacing about the various aspects of the 2019 installment.

The latest leak comes courtesy of Reddit user ‘Senescallo,’ who took advantage of Activision allowing the game to get pre-loaded by accessing the back-end files on PC and extracting information.

His video below showcases more than 250 options that players will have when customizing their characters with cosmetics, ranging over several different categories of items. 

250+ Showcase – Operator Skins, Weapon Variants, Charms, and Watches from r/modernwarfare

The video starts off with Operator skins, although the ones shown are more or less just different color schemes of the same standard clothing. Once the game launches, there will likely be a lot of extravagant outfits that players will be able to obtain.

Next come the weapons, which could be the most exciting part of the clip, as there are a ton of different customization options showcased. With each gun having a plethora of attachments, and there being a series of designs for each attachment, there will be virtually no limit when it comes to how players can deck out their weapons.

Following that are the weapon charms, which are little trinkets that will be hanging off the side of the gun. We got a taste of this during the beta, and it looks like Infinity Ward have a large amount of charms ready for when the game drops.

Last but not least, watches. Watches are a new addition this year, as each character will wear one in-game and accurately display the player’s local time. 

According to this leak, those items too will  be able to be customized, and some of the options look impressive.

Modern Warfare will not feature a loot-box style microtransaction system, so players should be able to unlock at least some of them by grinding the game.

However, while it hasn’t been confirmed yet, the game is likely to have an item shop for cosmetic items, so some of the ones shown in the video may need to be purchased.


Modern Warfare releases on October 25, 2019 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Totino’s was the latest to host a massive esports event with $20,000 on the line in one of the first proper  Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War tournaments, one that featured top pro players and some of the most popular streamers.

Over the years, we’ve seen the frozen pizza brand host tournaments in multiple games as well as form sponsorships with the likes of 100 Thieves, who recently entered the Call of Duty League with the LA Thieves.

Now, with Black Ops Cold War out and players starting to really get to grips with the game, they teamed up with a number of top names in Call of Duty, including the Minnesota RØKKR CDL team, to put on a show for fans. Here’s everything you need to catch up on the event.

Totino’s Black Ops Brawl recap

With a single-elimination bracket, teams only had one life to prove themselves with. As a result, four teams were immediately knocked out from the first round with no chance at redemption. Nameless, Swagg, Hitch, and Symfuhny all crashed out of the competition early on with their teams taken down right away.

While Tommey’s team advanced through to the grand final, they met a dominant force in the last series of the day. TeeP and his stacked squad refused to drop a map throughout the day. They came away with 3-0 wins over Symfuhny and Crowder to land in the finals.

The opening Hardpoint on Moscow came down to the wire with TeeP’s team narrowly edging it out. However, the next SnD on Miami was the polar opposite. Tommey’s team struck back with an insane 6-0 performance to tie things up. From here on out, their team kept the momentum rolling and closed out the grand final victory.
