Infinity Ward tease new Modern Warfare Gunfight modes coming soon

A plethora of variation could be coming to Gunfight in Modern Warfare, according to recent comments from Infinity Ward.

A brand new addition to the Call of Duty franchise, Gunfight pits two teams of two in an exceptionally small battlefield to duke it out over a number of fast-paced rounds.

With the recently introduced beta for a competitive Gunfight tournament, there’s no hiding that the intense game-mode is a huge focus for the developers moving forward. A new statement from Infinity Ward has indeed indicated that new variations of the popular game-type are in the pipeline.

Infinity Ward - Modern WarfareTraditional Gunfight will test your skills on each and every weapon-type from sniper rifles to rocket launchers.

Responding to an avid Modern Warfare player on Twitter, Infinity Ward Co-Design Director of Multiplayer Joe Cecot addressed Gunfight specifically and hinted at a number of exciting additions coming soon.

“Are you planning on adding 3v3 gunfight?” one fan questioned.

“At some point, also 1v1!” Cecot enthusiastically responded.

While no specific dates were outlined, these game-types have been in high demand throughout the Call of Duty community since the beta in September.

While the traditional Gunfight game-type spawns all players with identical loadouts that rotate every two-rounds, Gunfight: OSP adds a unique twist to the formula in that weapons and equipment are scattered across the map instead.

There’s no telling if the fresh 1v1 and 3v3 game-types will fall under the standard ruleset or if the OSP variant will take center stage. 

With some extremely condensed maps currently dominating the 2v2 variant, such as Gulag Showers and Docks, it’ll be interested to see how the new modes play out across fan-favorites. 

Infinity Ward - Modern Warfare Similar to a number of Gunfight maps, Speedball gets players into the midst of combat mere seconds after spawning.

With Season One just announced, a huge influx of fresh content is set to drop on December 3 across all platforms with further additions being introduced throughout the course of the inaugural season. 

Two new Gunfight-specific maps were outlined in the seasonal overview, referred to as Cargo and Atrium, with more set to follow further down the line. Perhaps the new maps will see the first playable versions of 3v3 or 1v1 competition in MW.

If you’re looking to one-shot enemies in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War with a shotgun, there’s an incredible Hauer 77 loadout that will help you dominate your Multiplayer matches in no time. 

Shotguns are back in the secondary slot in Treyarch‘s Black Ops Cold War and players are loving the one-shot potential of the weapons. Currently, there are only two shotguns in-gamem with those being the Gallo SA12 and Hauer 77.

When comparing the weapons, the Hauer 77 comes out on top for base firepower but the Gallo SA12 has a significantly faster rate of fire. Both have their place in Multiplayer, but when making your choice consider your playstyle and which weapon suits you best.

The Hauer 77 is the shotty players unlock first at level 7 and is the weapon we’ll be covering today. Here’s one of the best loadouts for the Hauer 77.

There are multiple great attachment options for the Hauer 77.

Here’s how you need to kit out your Hauer 77 shotgun for the most effective multiplayer loadout.

Hauer 77 loadout Attachments

  • Muzzle: Duckbill Choke
  • Barrel: 25.2 Task Force
  • Body: SWAT 5mW Laser Sight
  • Stock: Shotgun Stock
  • Handle: Serpent Wrap

Primary Weapon

  • M16


  • Perk 1: Tactical Mask + Flak Jacket
  • Perk 2: Scavenger + Tracker
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Gung-Ho

Wild Card

  • Perk Greed


  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Stimshot
  • Field Upgrade: Trophy System

This loadout strictly focuses on dominating opponents at close range with the shotgun. The Task Force Barrell increases the Hauer’s damage output at close quarters by 45%. Alongside the SWAT 5mW Laser Sight, the weapon has unbelievably effective hip-fire. The addition of the Shotgun Stock increases sprint to fire time by 15%. This allows players to run around the map and pull out their gun with ease when it’s needed.

In terms of choosing a primary weapon, the M16 provides this loadout with a medium to long-range option for players. However, the M16 is replaceable with any other assault rifle you prefer.

The M16 provides players with a long to medium range option.

In terms of perks, the six slots provided by Perk Greed allows this class to shine at close range while remaining undetected by enemies. On top of this, the Hauer struggles with its ammo usage so running Scavenger eliminates this issue. The addition of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask makes this combination heavily resistant to enemy equipment and capable of clearing areas quickly.

Finally, the equipment choices are fairly standard but running Stimshot in the tactical slot is a must. After rushing into a room and taking multiple close-quarter gunfights, the Stimshot is ideal in preparing for your next encounter with an enemy.

Now, all there’s to do is make this Hauer 77 loadout and try it out in Multiplayer for yourself.
