The second weekend of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare beta is finally upon us, allowing players on all platforms to jump into the action. Here’s everything you need to know, from codes, start times, and cross-platform play.

We’ve already had an alpha and the first weekend of beta for PS4 players only, leaving PC and Xbox One players green with envy.

Thankfully, the beta is now available for everyone, meaning players on each platform can get a full experience of the multiplayer, with a variety of modes.

Infinity WardHere’s what you need to know about the Modern Warfare betas.

When does the Modern Warfare beta start?

Although it is available on all platforms, the beta is still limited to players with pre-orders for the first two days, Thursday, September 19 and Friday, September 20.

If you don’t feel like preordering and can’t get a code though, don’t panic, as the beta will be open to everyone, even without a preorder, on September 21-23, for PS4, Xbox One, and PC players.

Modern Warfare beta dates – PS4, Xbox One, PC

  • PS4 Early Access (pre-order players only): September 12-13
  • PS4 Open Beta: September 14-16
  • PC, Xbox One pre-order beta, PS4 open beta: September 19-20
  • PC, Xbox One, PS4 open beta: September 21-23

Modern Warfare beta start times

The private beta (for preorders) will start at 10AM PT / 1PM EST / 6PM BST, then on Saturday 21, the open beta will begin at 10AM PT / 1PM EST / 6PM BST.

Can you play Cross-Platform in the beta?

One of the biggest demands for many players leading up to the release is cross-play, allowing players from multiple platforms to compete alongside or against each other.

The big news is it’ll be completely cross-play with PS4, Xbox One, and PC, making it the first Call of Duty title in the series to do so.

If you’re not sure how this works, check out our full Modern Warfare cross-play guide here.

Modern Warfare beta modes?

The alpha only featured the 2v2 Gunfight mode but the full beta will have a lot more content and modes to be played.

The popular Ground War playlist, which is set to hold up to 100 players per match, will be in for the second weekend of the beta, but so far only 32v32 has been confirmed.

The new Gunbench feature where players can customize their weapons is also be available here for players to try out.

How to get a beta code?

The first few days of the Modern Warfare beta will be exclusive to those who have received a code for pre-ordering the game. If you don’t have one, you can enter our code giveaway here.

You can redeem your code on the Beta website.

However, if you’re patient, you won’t have to do any extra work to play in the betas. Anyone who pre-orders will get earlier access but it will eventually become open to anyone, entirely for free.

When the beta is open, you will be able to download it from the PSN Store, Xbox Store, and launchers on PS4, Xbox One, and PC respectively.

Full list of 21 Black Ops Cold War Scorestreaks reportedly leaked

Black Ops Cold War is still a few weeks away from launch, though an early leak appears to have confirmed all 21 Scorestreaks that will be available from day one.

Killstreaks and Scorestreaks have been a staple of the Call of Duty franchise for many years now. Black Ops Cold War is sticking to the formula with a few unique changes, though there might be more streaks to unlock than ever before. 

Treyarch’s next release is set to drop on November 13 though major leaks are already starting to slip through the cracks. We got our first look at a list of Scorestreaks through the game’s early access Alpha and Beta tests. However, that was barely scratching the surface if the new intel holds true.

Black Ops Cold War is set to boast 21 unique streaks at launch. All of which can be earned across multiple lives so long as you’re adding to your total score by tallying kills and completing objectives. While we can’t include the leaked image as to avoid DMCAs, here’s a rundown on each and every streak.

Black Ops Cold War Scorestreaks
The early access Alpha gave us a look at just a few Black Ops Cold War Scorestreaks.

First up, the cheapest streak in the game appears to be the Incendiary Bow. Just like the War Machine available in the Beta, this will be an equippable weapon to deal extraordinary damage. Next up are a few familiar inclusions on the cheaper side of things. The RC-XD, Spy Plane, Counter Spy Plane, and Care Package are all to be expected. Though one new streak stands out.

At 700 points, players will seemingly be able to equip some armor just like in Warzone. The icon displays a bulletproof vest, so additional health could be on the menu in the core multiplayer experience

The Flamethrower is another fresh addition that we haven’t seen yet, while the Death Machine is reportedly also making a return. As we scale up to the more expensive streaks, a Hand Cannon is available for 2250 points. There’s no telling just how this one might work, though it could provide a One In The Chamber style buff.

At the very end of the list is the expected AI and pilotable Scorestreaks. You’ve got the Attack Helicopter and Chopper Gunner alongside a VTOL Escort and the Gunship to round things out. You’ll need to go on an absolute tear to unlock the final streak, however, as it’s placed at 10,000 points.

Below is a complete list of all Scorestreaks coming to Black Ops Cold War.

All 21 Scorestreaks in Black Ops Cold War

  • Incendiary Bow – 500
  • RC-XD – 600
  • Armor – 700
  • Spy Plane – 800
  • Counter Spy Plane – 900
  • Flamethrower – 1,000
  • Care Package – 1,250
  • Sentry Turret – 1,400
  • Death Machine – 1,500
  • Cruise Missile – 1,750
  • Artillery – 2,000
  • Hand Cannon –  2,250
  • Napalm Strike – 2,500
  • Air Patrol – 3,000
  • War Machine – 3,250
  • Strafe Run – 3,500
  • Attack Helicopter – 4,000
  • H.A.R.P. – 5,000
  • Chopper Gunner – 6,000
  • VTOL Escort – 8,000
  • Gunship – 10,000
Black Ops Cold War gameplay
Outside of AI-controlled air support, there will be a few pilotable streaks as usual in Black Ops Cold War.

Obviously, it’s worth taking this information with a grain of salt for now. There’s a good chance this information comes from an earlier build of the game. Some Streaks may have been removed or significantly changed already. 

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled over the coming days, however. If early copies of the game are already out in the wild, more leaks will likely be on the way.
