Call of Duty fans will now have the chance to rock some ‘Tiger King’ inspired cosmetic items in Modern Warfare and Warzone following the April 28 update.

The newly released Tiger King miniseries on Netflix has gone viral in recent weeks for its bizarre concept and characters. Fans already thought that Modern Warfare had used the show as inspiration for their Yegor skin, although it was up for debate.

There’s no doubt about it this time though, with the new Fire Claw bundle. As the show has created quite a buzz online, Infinity Ward has added to the hype by releasing a new cosmetic bundle in Modern Warfare, paying homage to the Netflix hit.

Infinity Ward has released a new weapon pack inspired by the hit Netflix show.

As with previous Fire Claw bundles, the new weapon pack features three tiger-themed items, however, fans have noticed that this time around, the graphic used to promote the pack included a lookalike of Tiger King’s main character, Joe Exotic.

While the Tiger King inspired graphic itself is not available as a calling card in-game, there are many other items in the pack which will likely suit fans of the series.

The Fire Claw 3 pack is seemingly inspired by Joe Exotic from Tiger King.

The new weapon pack will be available for 1100 CoD points in Modern Warfare’s store and players who pick up will receive a rare charm, a rare spray, and a legendary weapon blueprint for the AUG submachine gun.

A new Legendary blueprint for the AUG is available in the tiger-themed weapon pack.

The legendary AUG blueprint is in line with the pack’s theme as it features claw marks, tiger stripes, and even a tiger’s face on the side of the weapon.

With a new charm and in-game spray available as well, players can be fully kitted out in tiger gear next time they hop on Modern Warfare or Warzone.

  • My Dominion – Rare Spray
  • Big Kitty – Rare Charm

This is not the first time that Modern Warfare developers have added new content into the game which was believed to be inspired by Tiger King.

One of their recent variations for Operator Yegor seemed to resemble Joe Exotic’s ex-husband, John Finlay.

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.
