Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone players can now collect some new and exclusive cosmetic items for their characters from Twitch drops.

Following the April 28 update, Activision revealed that they will be partnering up with Twitch once again to give away rewards to Warzone and Modern Warfare players.

If you’re interested in picking up some exclusive cosmetic items to show off in-game, here’s what you’ll need to do in order to get your hands on some bonus content.

These rewards will only be available between the dates of April 29 (10AM PT) and May 6 (10AM PT), so don’t wait around too long if you don’t want to miss out.

Modern Warfare & Warzone Twitch Drops

  1. Register for a Call of Duty account if you do not yet have one. Creating a Call of Duty will give you access to more features such as cross-platform play and the occasional rewards such as these Twitch drops. You can sign up for an account HERE.
  2. You will need to connect or re-link your Call of Duty and Twitch accounts. Do this by heading over to the official Call of Duty website, log in using your Steam, Xbox, PSN, or Blizzard  Battle.net account details – and go to the ‘Linked Accounts’ tab in your Profile Settings, where you will see the option to connect with Twitch.
  3. You will need to head to Twitch and search for a streamer in the Modern Warfare category who is playing with the “drops enabled” tag, so you can be sure that you are earning the rewards.
  4. Log in to Modern Warfare or Warzone and try out your new rewards in-game!

For this set of rewards, Call of Duty players will receive a cosmetic item for every hour of Modern Warfare content they view on stream, between 1-3 hours. The more you watch, the more you will unlock. The rewards can be found below.

  • Swing Into Action calling card – unlocked after watching one hour
  • Skull Trooper emblem – unlocked after watching two hours
  • Crimson Standard Watch – unlocked after watching three hours

While you can watch multiple streams at once, that are eligible for drops, Twitch will tally up your total watch time and issue your rewards accordingly.

Game-breaking Warzone bug is teleporting players around Verdansk

Call of Duty: Warzone players are no strangers to bugs, but a new teleportation one is catching them by surprise and suddenly making them strangers in foreign lands across Verdansk.

It’s hard to iron out every single bug and issue in a game, and even harder when the game is periodically receiving massive updates with new cosmetics, modes, and locations. As such, it’s no surprise that Modern Warfare and Warzone’s developers at Infinity Ward have an extensive backlog of problems they’re still trying to fix.

Unlike some of the game’s earlier big bugs, like the frustrating Heartbeat Sensor glitch or “demon gun” nightmare, this teleportation one seems to have gone completely under the developers’ radar. 

In the clip below, a player is seen trying to break through a window in one section of the map before suddenly, practically instantaneously, being teleported across the map. It’s very surprising, very confusing, and, apparently, very new.

While Infinity Ward is typically very transparent with their tasks, piling known issues into a publicly available Trello Board, this teleportation bug has not cracked the list. This could very well mean that this is a recent issue that the encumbered developers remain unaware of.

As shown by Reddit’s ‘DandruffMuffin,’ they are in an attic in one of the houses atop Dam when they casually try to break through a window and escape toward the Fire Station. In what looks like a poorly spliced together series of clips, the window-breaking animation is delayed by a couple of seconds while the game’s surrounding landscape loads up.

Imagine, in one second, going from snowy Dam all the way to…Promenade?

Once those smooth textures turn into real graphics, it’s revealed that DandruffMuffin is not a horrible video editor, but the subject of a new fast travel system entirely unrelated to the new Verdansk subway line. Seconds after being in a house above Dam, they are teleported hundreds of meters away from their teammate to the middle of the road near Promenade and the Hills.

It’s as bizarre a bug as they get and you get that feeling very visibly from DandruffMuffin’s confused reactions. As of yet, Infinity Ward has not responded to this issue and no one seems certain about its causes.
