Early Modern Warfare Season One gameplay of the remade-version of Crash has surfaced, revealing major changes made to the iconic Call of Duty map.

When it comes to the most well-known maps in Call of Duty history, there are not many more recognizable than Crash, which debuted in the original CoD4: Modern Warfare title.

It was brought back in 2016 with Modern Warfare Remastered, and developers Infinity Ward have decided to feature it yet again – this time in their 2019 installment of the popular series.

While the map won’t be available to the public until December 3, some YouTubers got early access to the Season One content, and were able to capture gameplay on the remade map.

Here is one video, courtesy of New York Subliners pro player Dillon ‘Attach’ Price, showcasing how Crash looks in this year’s Modern Warfare multiplayer.

New area added to 2019 version of Crash

Compared to its classic counterpart from 2007 and 2016, the 2019 version of Crash is both a remaster and remake. Not only do all of the textures and visuals look a lot better, there has also been a new area added in the form of a courtyard.

This new courtyard is located towards the western edge of the map, where one of the teams usually spawns, behind what is commonly referred to as broken blue building.

While it’s not the biggest change that could have been made, it’s still pretty significant because it offers a new vantage point towards the middle of the map, and even a head-glitch that players can hide behind or mount.

In the original version, that area was covered in grass and shrubs and was out-of-bounds, inaccessible to players.

When will this new Crash be available in Modern Warfare?

Crash, and the two other classic MW maps that have been remade, will be releasing as part of the massive Season One content launch on Tuesday, December 3 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET.

As with all post-launch content in Modern Warfare, these maps will be available for free to all players on the three major platforms – PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC – meaning PS4 will not have an exclusivity period.

Black Ops Cold War devs address Mastery camo bug & confirm other fixes

Mastery camos in Black Ops Cold War will soon be looking better than ever, Treyarch has confirmed, with an assortment of camo-related fixes on the way in a nearby update.

If you’ve already been hard at work grinding the latest Call of Duty, unlocking the very best camos has likely kept you busy. Reaching that elite Dark Matter cosmetic is always a huge effort, though many players have already hit it just weeks after launch.

Unfortunately, the flashy Mastery Camos haven’t quite lived up to the hype in many regards. Some weapons barely display the unique visual. Small areas of the guns are given the new design while a majority of the weapon stays the same.

The community was naturally disappointed at first, but it turns out these actually aren’t working as intended. Fixes are on the way very soon, as Treyarch has confirmed the top priorities for the next major update.

First and foremost, we now have confirmation that “unintentional changes to Mastery Camos” will be addressed in the next update. “After our most recent update, some weapons began to display certain Mastery Camo differently,” devs addressed on the official Treyarch Trello board.

While an exact date isn’t quite set in stone for the next update just yet, rest assured it won’t be long. “We are looking to release a fix for this in our next major update,” they confirmed.

So if these issues had you holding back on the Dark Matter grind, there’s no reason not to get back on the hustle. In a matter of days, the camos will be displaying properly and you’ll be able to flex your early accomplishments.

Next up, there are six other major problems that Treyarch is looking into. Some are more vague, such as various console crashes and bugged animations. However, others are more specific.

Prestige leveling should be a bit smoother in the weeks to come. If your level hasn’t been displaying properly, a fix for this is currently in the works.

Outside of bug fixes, Flak Jacket could be addressed in a nearby update.

While no specific changes are on the way just yet, the balance team has also “had discussions” surrounding the power of Flak Jacket. A potential nerf could be on the way given how common the perk has become since launch.

The most recent patch only just went out on November 25, so we likely won’t see anything for a few days at a minimum. At least now have a solid idea of what to expect when the next updates roll around.
