Infinity Ward have dropped another weekly update detailing what is coming soon to Modern Warfare and Warzone – with some older modes making a return in the battle royale. 

Ever since Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was released back in October, Infinity Ward have been keeping the popular title updated with new content in their weekly updates or when a new season gets underway.

With the addition of Warzone coming back in March, these weekly updates have been used to detail what’s coming next in Verdansk – be it a brand-new weapon, the opening of the mysterious vaults, or new modes. 

In their July 13 update, Infinity Ward have revealed what’s coming in the week ahead – with a few modes making a return.

New content has kept Warzone fresh.

The developers noted that Battle Royale Solos, Duos, Trios, and Quads will all still be available during the weekend before a refresh comes over the weekend.

Once the weekend hits, players will be able to dive back into Warzone Rumble – the Team Deathmatch-like mode that has quickly become a fan-favorite as teams of 50 fight it out in a small part of Verdansk.

Plunder Trios will also be available once again, so, you’ll have to split up your squads if you decide to shake things up and start playing the money hunting mode. 

Plunder was Warzone's original LTM at launch. Now it looks like a dozen more are on the way.

If you’re not planning on stepping foot in Verdansk, there are plenty of changes coming to multiplayer as well. Cheshire Park 8v8 and Shoot House 24/7 will take the place of the current 24/7 playlist.

One in the Chamber will also return while Gun Game Reloaded and All or Nothing will be available to play as well. 

On top of all that, there is another round of Gunfight Tournaments dropping in Modern Warfare so you can fight with a partner there instead of fending for yourself in Warzone’s Gulag.

The Call of Duty League has announced all-new details for upcoming 2021 Challengers events, and there will be even more ways for up and coming players to show their stuff.

Call of Duty Challengers is the official “path to pro” circuit for amateur CoD esports players around the world, and there are two brand new events being added to the circuit in 2021 – the Scouting Series and Challengers Elite.

The 2019 season wrapped up in August with the $500k finals crowning the top teams in North America, Europe and Asia. Once again, players looking for their big break are eagerly awaiting the next opportunity.

They won’t have to be patient for very long either, with the first new Challengers event kicking off just a couple of weeks at the time of writing, in early December with the Scouting Series.

This Series will bring together CDL coaches to draft their own squads from one big pool of all the players that secure an invite. These teams will be split up into EU and NA competitions and will play against teams from their region over the course of the four-day tournament.

Elite is the second new event, and will put the top amateur teams from Challengers into an exclusive bracket to battle it out, sometime “over the course of the 2021 Season.”

Challengers Cups were first introduced in 2019 and will be returning in 2021 as well. These will be standalone tournaments  players across North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. Through the Cups and the competitive Ladder, players can earn Challengers points which are used to qualify and seed teams for various events throughout the season.

Specific dates for the upcoming 2021 season events are still unknown, but we’ll keep you posted on them as information becomes available.

If you’re interested in seeing if you and your team have what it takes, you can get more information on how to sign up and get going right here. There’s no guarantee you’ll be the next player on the Dallas Empire or anything like that, but if you’re confident in your ability to frag out, it can’t hurt to give it a shot.
