Activision have given players the opportunity to earn free in-game gear in Modern Warfare simply by watching Call of Duty streamers on Twitch.

There was a lot of hype and anticipation surrounding the release of Modern Warfare on October 25, as the community finally got a new game to enjoy after a long year of Black Ops 4.

Activision have added to all that excitement by partnering up with Twitch to give out item drops through any eligible channel that’s streaming the game. 

There are a total of four items that players can earn, each unlocked after watching streams for a certain length of time:

  • ‘Poison Grapes’ Spray – unlocked after one hour of watching
  • ‘Looking Grim’ Emblem – two hours
  • ‘Collect Your Soul’ Calling Card – three hours
  • ‘Reap This’ Weapon Charm – four hours

ActivisionThere are four Modern Warfare cosmetic items that players can earn through this Twitch Drops promotion.

Here are all of the steps that must be completed for both a stream to eligible to give out items and for viewers to be able to receive them.

  • Step 1: Streamers must link their Call of Duty and Twitch accounts by visiting the Activision website HERE. Even if they’ve linked the accounts in the past, they have to re-link them. Once the Twitch Drop is successfully enabled, a confirmation will appear at the bottom of the screen on stream.
  • Step 2: Both streamers and viewers need to have an active Call of Duty account, which they make get HERE.
  • Step 3: Viewers must have their Call of Duty and Twitch accounts linked to earn the item drops. Even if the accounts were linked in the past, they need to be linked again. That all can be done by visiting the CoD website HERE.
  • Step 4: Once all that is done, and the Twitch Drops confirmation is showing on the screen, then viewers can start watching to earn the items.

The official Call of Duty Twitter page has listed several big-name streamers who all have Twitch Drops enabled, so watching these streams will guarantee you free items.

There is no maximum number of streamers you can watch at any given time, which means you can have multiple channels on and have them count towards your overall time watched, just as long as they have Twitch Drops enabled.

After you have watched the required amount of hours for the item(s) that you wish to unlock, you simply have to open your game up again and the item(s) will be in your inventory.

Bizarre Black Ops Cold War bug is making players fall through maps

Black Ops Cold War players are facing an issue which is seeing them completely fall through the maps in the game, and nobody knows why.

As with any new release, Cold War is not without its bugs. Players claim that the game is giving them free Dark Matter camos and, perhaps worst of all, even bricking their Xbox Series X consoles.

One of the major complaints about BOCW has been the lack of maps, with just eight being available at launch — and matters are about to get even worse for Treyarch if this bug persists.

In multiple clips, we’ve seen players simply falling through the map and dying, and it doesn’t seem bound to one particular map either.

Moscow is one of the more popular maps in Black Ops Cold War — but this bug is making it difficult.

The first clip embedded below shows Sturmbrecher64 on Reddit playing out of their spawn on Garrison.

After moving behind some barrels for protection from incoming gunfire, Sturmbrecher just drops right through the floor, even granting his enemy the kill!

Sturmbrecher isn’t the only victim, though, as professional player Dylan ‘Envoy’ Hannon of OpTic Chicago also found himself flying under the map randomly when trying to hold spawns on Moscow Hardpoint.

Needless to say, he didn’t hold the spawns, and actually isn’t the first major problem pros have found on Moscow: his OpTic teammate Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper actually found himself stuck in a glass window, unable to move when attempting to rotate to a different bombsite, with the only option being to throw a nade at his own feet or — in this lucky instance — have Envoy ‘punch’ him out of the spot.

It’s not clear yet whether these points specifically on each map are causing problems for players, or if it’s random, but it’s evidently something that is an issue across the game in general, so Treyarch will likely be finding ways to fix it up as soon as possible.
