The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare devs have revealed what’s changing in Multiplayer and Warzone for the week beginning August 17, with a few playlist shakeups coming down the line.

With Modern Warfare Season 5 in full flow, Infinity Ward have been keeping both the normal multiplayer modes and Warzone feeling fresh with the addition of some new content. 


Each week, the devs roll out new updates with fresh cosmetics available to purchase from the in-game store, as well as rotating the different playlists so that players aren’t just grinding Shoot the Ship 24/7 each and every week. 

With a new week getting underway, the devs have revealed the playlist changes that are coming to Modern Warfare multiplayer and Warzone beginning August 18. Though, the battle royale isn’t changing all that much.

Plenty of changes have come to Warzone and Modern Warfare over the year.

In terms of fresh Multiplayer modes, the Faceoff playlist, which takes the usual 6v6 Multiplayer modes and places them onto the 3v3 Gunfight maps, will be available. 

On top of that, if you’re looking to get some work in with snipers, a playlist focused on the Oil Rig, Suldal Harbor, Cheshire Park, Hovec Sawmill, and Khandor Hideout maps will be playable. This will have deathmatch and objective game modes. 

Cyber Attack Pro will also be playable in the playlist update. Instead of needing to revive downed teammates before heading to the objective, they will simply respawn.

The new Oil Rig map plays a big role in the new playlist.

Warzone playlist changes – August 18

As for Warzone, there aren’t any big shakeups coming in terms of new battle royale modes. Mini Royale will still be playable, as will Blood Money Trios and Battle Royale Solos, Duos, Trios, and Quads. 

However, if you find yourself in the Gulag, the weapon pool is being tweaked. That’s right, this week the weapons will be from the assault rifle and SMG pool. 

If you’re hoping for some double XP this week, well, you’re out of luck.


The devs aren’t bringing that back just yet, so you’ll just have to grind for your XP.

Call of Duty League franchise, Florida Mutineers, are putting together a Warzone tournament series that will give interested players a chance to compete against big-name pros and content creators for a slice of the $25,000 prize pool.

With the dog days of the Call of Duty League offseason very much upon us, more and more teams are entering the business of hosting Warzone competitions, with the Florida Mutineers being the latest example.


Along with one of their leading sponsors, Cox, the Mutineers have organized the Elite Gamer event, a series of Warzone tournaments that will culminate with a $25,000 championship featuring a lot of popular figures in and out of the gaming world.

Before that, however, players in the United States will get a chance to compete in several smaller play-in competitions, which will feature their own prizes as well as qualifier spots for the main event.

These smaller competitions feature prizes from SCUF Gaming, Astro Gaming, and the Florida Mutineers organization, with the top-two duo teams from each one advancing to the Pro-Am Championship.

The Elite Gamer series will wrap up on October 27 with the $25,000 Pro-Am Championship tournament, which will feature “celebrities, professional athletes, musicians, and top CDL players,” according to the team.

$15,000 will go to the first-place duo, $5,000 to second place, and the remaining $5,000 will be donated to The Call of Duty Endowment – a non-profit organization that seeks to help veterans find high-quality careers by supporting groups that prepare them for the job market and by raising awareness of the value veterans bring to the workplace.

Several players have already been confirmed, including Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren and Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad – popular streamers who have already won several high-profile Warzone competitions. The full list of participants will likely get revealed at some point ahead of the main event.

That’s all we know about this tournament series so far; while the details regarding the actual format haven’t been announced yet, considering that it’s a “pro-am” tournament, each Warzone player will likely be paired up with someone from outside the gaming industry.
