Call of Duty fans can expect to dive into League Play and the World League Hub on February 28, while the explosive LTM Hot Pursuit will make its way to Xbox One and PC on March 1.
Operation Grand Heist will have plenty of content to keep players busy until more features hit throughout the week.
The update also brought a nerf to the Swordfish burst-rifle that will see the ADS movement speed slowed a bit. Treyarch will definitely be monitoring how the change effect the popular weapon and could change the discussion around the current Gentleman's Agreement in the CWL.
Blackout fans will be able to try out two new features in the battle royale with Ghost Town being included into the game as well as the long awaited Blackout Quick Equip 2.0.
The revamped layout to Blackout’s loot interface will look to make equipment easier to access while reducing the clutter that previous layouts were infamous for.
Zombies fans are getting the new Death-Con Five Gauntlet on Classified, while Multiplayer gets two new maps in Casino and Lockup.

Players can toggle this new setting in the Controls section of the Options menu. Give it a shot and let us know what you think after a few matches!
