On top of Black Ops Cold War, the servers for Modern Warfare, and subsequently the battle royale game Warzone, are experiencing an outage as of 5:30 PM EST on January 12, 2021. Here’s everything we know about the current outage.

If you’re trying to connect to Modern Warfare and Warzone and are experiencing some issues like a forced waiting queue and more, then you’re not alone.

Activision has confirmed on their official support page that the servers for Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare, and of course Warzone, are experiences outages right now and may prevent users from getting into the game, which is leading to a lot of frustrated players.

Warzone/Modern Warfare players might be met with this message when trying to log-in right now.

Right now, it’s unknown just how widespread the problems are. According to Activision, servers for Warzone are experiencing outages on all platforms, meaning it doesn’t matter where you’re playing the game: everyone is having problems.

In terms of what’s causing the problems, no one’s really certain. According to some messages displayed while trying to log-in, the servers are undergoing maintenance, but this doesn’t really seem likely.

According to a tweet published by Activision Support, the company is investigating the connectivity issues for both games, but failed to give an explanation outside of that.

Right now, there’s no telling exactly when the servers are going to be back up. It’s already been confirmed that some fixes have been implemented for the Black Ops Cold War servers, so hopefully it won’t be too much longer before the Warzone ones get some fixes as well.

Still, there’s been next to no update about Warzone version specifically aside from the small tweet from Activision, so people will have to be patient for the time being.

As always, we will continue to bring you the latest updates on this issue as more information becomes available.

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have revealed that one iconic CoD weapon is coming in 2021’s Season 1 update, and it should be recognizable to any long-time CoD fan.

For years, Call of Duty fans have begged Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Activision, and anyone else who will listen, for a game that takes the best part of all previous releases and puts them into one.

Increasingly, we’re seeing more map remakes, classic weapons returning, and even character crossovers thanks to Warzone, but it’s CoD Mobile that really fits the bill of what that all-encompassing CoD game would be.

The mobile game has maps from CoD 4: Modern Warfare, Black Ops 1, as well as weapons from Advanced Warfare and even Black Ops 3 and 4. With the first major update of 2021 just around the corner, the devs have started teasing what’s coming next, and we’re getting more throwbacks.

CoD Mobile has characters, maps, and weapons from almost every modern Call of Duty game.

Even though CoD Mobile is currently, as of writing, in Season 13, when the first major update of 2021 hits, we’ll be back to Season 1. Just like how Fortnite is now Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Regardless, when players finally get to play the new season update, they’ll be able to wield the FAMAS. Yes, the iconic Call of Duty weapon, that has been in a whole host of CoD games is finally arriving in CoD Mobile.

The devs confirmed the news on January 16, tweeting out their first teaser for the new season. “A new weapon is approaching! Can you guess what it is?” they said, with an image and it’s fairly obvious that the weapon in question is the FAMAS.

The name of the iconic weapon might get a slight tweak when it is added to CoD Mobile. The devs have tweaked the names of other recognizable guns before, just to give it a new feel for the mobile game.

There’s also the question of whether it’ll be as powerful as it was, say, back in Black Ops 1. Hopefully, we don’t have to wait too long.
