How could a battle royale mode work in Modern Warfare?

A popular YouTuber has claimed that a Battle Royale mode for Call of Duty are pondering just how it would potentially work in the new game.

The long-awaited next installment to the Modern Warfare series was finally confirmed on May 30 as a single player teaser trailer was released. However, there has yet to be any major information about multiplayer or a possible battle royale add-on for the next release within the CoD franchise. 

According to YouTuber TheGamingRevolution, who claims to have a source and previously pointed to the spec ops co-op mode being used in competitive play, a Modern Warfare battle royale mode is “being worked on.” While this obviously isn’t confirmed, the YouTuber does raise a number of points that would make the mode the most ambitious attempt at a battle royale yet. 

Infinity WardPlenty of news has been circling about Modern Warfare but not so much about multiplayer.

TheGamingRevolution claims that the mode was never originally planned to be added to the game and has become a last minute addition. Despite that, Infinity Ward has been targetting a lobby size of 200 players – with the developers apparently being able to host 152 players at some points already. 

Of course, that would mean that the game’s map would have to be huge. TheGamingRevolution claims that the map is around 3 times the size of the current Blackout map and has plenty of variation. 

The YouTuber also adds that it is seemingly nowhere near as complete as the campaign or multiplayer modes as they have been the focus of Infinity Ward. Yet, they have been borrowing ideas from other games – with the weapon and loot working similarly to Fortnite’s tier system rather. 

Now, none of this is confirmed information and comes purely from TheGamingRevolution’s apparent source, but Infinity Ward has yet to confirm or deny that a battle royale is in play for Modern Warfare.

When asked by CharlieINTEL if there were plans for a battle royale mode, Activision refused to give an answer – leading to further speculation. Certainly, the modern military setting would make for a unique battle royale experience.

As ever, and as the YouTuber states himself, these things can change for one reason or another and what he seems to know could be scrapped completely before release.

The QBZ-83 is may not be as strong or as accurate as the AK-47, but its superior mobility and handling make it a great pick. Here all the perks, attachments, and equipment you need to push this assault rifle to its peak. 

Whether you’re looking to level up every gun to grab those ultra-rare camos or just wanting to give the QBZ-83 a go, then you’ll want to use this loadout. This assault rifle is often overlooked by a lot of players and it’s currently one of the least used guns in the assault rifle category. However, if you’re willing to put in the effort into learning the QBZ, you’ll find that it is a pretty well-round rifle. 

This loadout boosts the QBZ-83’s already great speed, but also increases the gun’s accuracy and firepower. If you’re after an AR that can go toe to toe with the game’s SMGs, then look no further. In order to help you get the most out of the QBZ-83, we’ve put together a reliable loadout you can use to get those deadly Scorestreaks.

Best QBZ-83 loadout for Black Ops Cold War

The recent FFAR 1 and M16 nerfs have made the QBZ-83 a more viable option.
  • Muzzle: Infantry Compensator 
  • Barrel: 15.5” Reinforced Heavy
  • Underbarrel:Foregrip
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap 
  • Stock: Raider Stock


  • 1911


  • Stimshot
  • Semtex
  • Field Mic


  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket + Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Assassin + Scavenger 
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Ghost


  • Perk Greed

Due to the QBZ-83 having a very clear default sight, we’ve saved the attachment slot to make a much more comfy build. The Infantry Compensator and Foregrip help control both the gun’s horizontal and vertical recoil. This enables you to remain accurate at medium to long ranges. 

Adding to this is the 15.5” Heavy. Not only does this attachment increase the AR’s bullet velocity by a significant 40%, but it also increases the gun’s damage range by 100%. Whether you’re planning to play on the game’s bigger maps or just wanting to increase your kill potential, then the Reinforced Heavy is a must. 

Rounding things off at the bottom, is the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raider Stock. These attachments increase ADS and sprint to fire time, allowing you to aggressively rush your foes without having to worry about sluggish performance. 

In terms of equipment, the standard Stimshot, Semtex, and Field Mic have been chosen. These items will keep you on your feet and enable you to get the drop on any potential targets.

The QBZ-83’s speed and firepower makes for some blisteringly fast kills.

This loadout uses Perk Greed, which allows players to take six perks. The combination of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask will keep you safe from any explosives and noxious gas. These perks are important for most loadouts, but especially hyper-aggressive ones that prefer the run and gun approach to combat.

Meanwhile, Assassin reveals high priority targets and enables you to get the drop on any enemies who are on killstreaks. Scavenger also replenishes the QBZ-83’s ammo from fallen players, so you’ll never have to hunt for another gun when your ammo is low. 

Lastly, Ghost and Ninja keep your movements hidden from prying eyes and enable you to go for those sneaky flanks. After all, this loadout favors both close to mid-range firefights, so don’t be afraid to get into the very thick of a fight.
