To continue celebrating Modern Warfare Season 4, Activision has launched new Twitch drops for in-game Call of Duty rewards that can be used in multiplayer and Warzone.

Update: the error that many encountered when trying to link their Call of Duty and Twitch accounts has been fixed and the date has been extended to July 21. The instructions below should now work for all players interested in earning drops through Twitch.

From July 9 to July 21, Call of Duty players can watch drop-eligible streamers on Twitch to earn a few different rewards that can be used in multiplayer and Warzone. Previously, many are experiencing an error code when trying to follow Activision’s instructions, but that issue has finally been resolved.

How to earn Modern Warfare and Warzone Twitch rewards

1. Get a Call of Duty account

If you don’t have a Call of Duty account already, then sign up for one here.

2. Link (or re-link) your Twitch account

Go to your Call of Duty profile to link CoD to Twitch. If you already have it linked, you may need to unlink and re-link to ensure the correct permissions are enabled.

3. Watch drop-eligible streamers and earn rewards

Once your accounts are linked, go ahead and just watch some CoD streamers. You’ll know that you’re able to start earning drops per hours watched once you see the “Drops Enabled” underneath their stream title.

As for the hours needed, one hour gets you the “Censory Overload” spray, two hours gets you a “Love the Bomb” emblem, and three hours gets you a “Bloodstream” Grau 5.56 blueprint. These would be relatively easy to crank out, but users have been reporting error code 253000 every time they try to link accounts per Activision’s official instructions.


After about a week with few being able to successfully link accounts, Activision support has confirmed that the error is resolved and the aforementioned instructions appear to be working.

Fortunately, Call of Duty has extended the eligibility period for rewards until July 21—giving players more than enough time to get three hours of Twitch watched and all three rewards earned.

New Warzone update removes helicopters & adds Juggourdnaut Royale

Infinity Ward has pushed out a new playlist update for both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone and while it adds some modes to the game like Juggourdnaut Royale, it also removes helicopters from the night-version of its battle royale.

New playlist updates for Modern Warfare and Warzone, generally speaking, only change out the gamemodes in the game, but today’s is a bit special. According to some notes released by Infinity Ward, the new hotfix removes two major aspects of the title.

The first is the removal of helicopters from the night version of Verdansk, which is pretty major to say the least. Currently, it’s unclear exactly why Infinity Ward made this change, as they didn’t specify in their tweet. It could be due to a bug, low visibility, or something else entirely.

Pumpkin heads have also been removed from Modern Warfare and Warzone.

In addition, the developer also removed the pumpkin heads due to a bug occurring, although exactly what that bug is was also not made clear. It’s also undetermined if this removal also affects the pumpkin heads on the juggernaut suit, which automatically has the head attached when you put it on.

Beyond these removals however, the update also adds a new mode, Juggourdnaut Royale. Despite the name being a bit different, this is the exact same mode as Juggernaut Royale, which was added to the game during Season 4. Players have to fight over juggernaut suits located around the map in order to survive.

On top of that, Infinity Ward also added BR Solo Survivor and Plunder: Candy Collector to the rotation, both of which appear to be renamed versions of the standard modes.

It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes the developers to re-add the helicopter and pumpkin heads to the game. While the former has obviously been in the game from the start, the latter is a nice seasonal treat that will only be around for a couple more weeks.
