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.

Black Ops Cold War has, once again, gotten a small update. This time around, we have the addition of a brand new map in Nuketown ’84, as well as some fixes for camo progression and Zombies. Here’s everything you need to know.

It seems like Treyarch isn’t slowing down with the updates for Black Ops Cold War. Just a day after their last one, the developer has once again released a brand new update for the first-person shooter, marking the fourth overall update since Friday.

Like the update November 23 update, this isn’t a full blown patch, meaning you won’t have to download anything on your system in order to take advantage of the new changes. Rather, the game settings will be automatically updated when you open the game.

While this update doesn’t change anything drastic about the game, aside from one aspect, it’s still a noteworthy update for a number of reasons. Here’s everything you need to know about it.

Biggest changes in the Black Ops Cold War Nov 24 update

Activision
The biggest addition in the November 24 update is that of Nuketown ’84.

Easily the biggest addition to the game is that of Nuketown ’84. It is the first post-launch piece of content for the game so its inclusion is a big deal to say the least. The map itself seems almost identical to the original from 2010 in terms of layout. In fact, within the lore, it is a “Site B” to the original Nuketown, which explains why it looks identical.

It’s also worth noting that this map is also available in the PlayStation exclusive Onslaught mode, which pits two players against the undead in standard multiplayer maps.

In addition to Nuketown ’84, Double XP and Weapon XP is live within Black Ops Cold War. According to Treyarch, the bonus is set to remain live for around a week, until November 30. This should give fans a good chance to grind out their weapons and get all the attachments/camos they want.

Beyond that, a bunch of other glitches were also fixed. Mainly, two bugs associated with camos in the game have been resolved, including one that had to do with Knife camo progression not working if it was selected as a primary weapon.

As with every other update so far, Zombies also got a number of fixes as well. Almost all of them are minor and none of them seem to address the crashes associated with the mode but, nonetheless, they’re still noteworthy.

All in all, it’s good to see that Black Ops Cold War is getting frequent updates. Even if they’re small game updates, hopefully they continue in the future.
