Infinity Ward will give Modern Warfare a free access playlists this weekend and here’s everything you need to know to jump into the action.

While the entire multiplayer component for Modern Warfare won’t be truly free access, IW is offering the next best thing with a “Stocked Up, Locked Down” playlist for free-to-play Warzone fans to try out.

Starting on April 3 at 10 AM PST / 1 PM EST until April 6, players can go into the Warzone Lobby and navigate to the Stocked up, Locked Down 24/7 playlist that features two maps and several modes from multiplayer.

The free weekend will let Warzone players test out Modern Warfare’s Multiplayer.

To step into the free-to-play playlist over the weekend, download Warzone from the PlayStation Store or Xbox Live for consoles, or get the client on PC.

Once downloaded, go into the main lobby after April 3 at 10 AM PST and you should have a new option that gives you access to the special multiplayer event.

Though people won’t have control over which maps or modes they load into, anyone will be able to repeatedly queue up in the Stocked up, Locked Down playlist over the entirety of the weekend and into Monday morning.

Atlas Superstore is going to be packed with action over the free playlist weekend in Modern Warfare.

Stocked up, Locked Down 24/7 features two maps from the regular multiplayer – Atlas Superstore and Shoot House. The former should already be very familiar to Warzone players since it’s one of the premier hot-drops in the battle royale.

Shoot House, added in Season 1, quickly became a fan-favorite and has stayed that way ever since. Its small size keeps players in action at almost every moment, unlike some of the larger maps that can get a bit boring at times.

As for the modes, the playlist includes five of the most popular ones from multiplayer: Team Deathmatch, Kill Confirmed, Domination, Hardpoint, and Headquarters.

Shoot House will be available for the free access weekend in Modern Warfare.

Even if a Warzone player isn’t interested in multiplayer, trying out the free weekend could be a great way to practice the various Call of Duty components that transferred over to the BR, including killstreaks, Field Upgrades, and perks.

Furthermore, you’ll also be able to level up any weapon you choose and start equipping better attachments and camos for the guns you get in Loadout Drops. This lasts for only three days though, so make sure you take advantage of this opportunity!

How to find Warzone Leatherface house easter egg on Verdansk map

With Call of Duty: Warzone celebrating its first Halloween, there’s some unique changes to the map: here’s everything you need to know to find and enter Leatherface’s house on the Verdansk map.

Warzone’s Halloween celebrations are well underway, with a ton of new content for players to dive into. This includes a number of ghostly easter eggs, one of which takes the shape of a creepy Leatherface shack located on the Verdansk map.

Leatherface is infamous for his role as the antagonist in The Texas Chainsaw film series. First debuting in 1974, the cannibalistic murderer has been reincarnated multiple times. You can even unlock Leatherface content in Modern Warfare and Warzone to strike fear into the heart of your opponents.

Warzone’s Halloween event has given the map a major spooky makeover.

Leatherface’s house location in Warzone

In order to find his house, you need to head to the very east side of the map, towards Krovnik Farmland. Once there, you’ll find a small hut towards the top of the south east areas of huts.

Once you’re nearby it should be pretty easy to locate – there are plenty of signs that it’s the house of a serial killer. A demonic Leatherface figure will greet you at one of the windows, while body parts are littered around the downstairs. Chainsaw noises will also play from upstairs, before two Leatherface figures ambush you on your trip up the stairs.

There’s no in-game reward for visiting the house of Leatherface, but it’s an awesome feature for fans of The Texas Chainsaw series to enjoy nonetheless. It’s fair to assume you could terrify unsuspecting players by waiting among the scattered body parts and incarnations of the mass murderer.

At the time of writing Halloween is still has over a week left, so Infinity Ward could well have some more tricks (or treats) up their sleeves for the Haunting of Verdansk event.
