Infinity Ward have confirmed that two fan-favorite playlists will be running side-by-side in Modern Warfare before the launch of Season Two, as well as more XP events.

With Season Two just around the corner, Infinity Ward are looking to see out their first season with a bang. After issuing fans with an extension on Season One, Infinity Ward added Deathmatch Domination and Gunfight Custom to their playlist. 

Now, the Modern Warfare developers are turning up the heat and listening to community feedback by bringing back Shoot House 24/7, while keeping the dedicated Shipment playlist.

In their January 31 community update, Infinity Ward stated that a few changes would be coming in their February 4 update. 

 “We’re planning a few things for next week,” the developers wrote. “Maybe a playlist for Shipment 24/7 AND a playlist for Shoot House 24/7? Hm…”

This would be the first time that both Shipment and Shoot House playlists have appeared in the game simultaneously — meaning that fans are being treated to an action-packed week of close-quarters combat.

Shoot House 24/7 was replaced by Shipment 24/7 in the January 28 update.

Alongside both playlists running side-by-side, fans will be able to grind the beloved ‘Gunfight’ playlist, as tournaments were also teased to return.

For those needed to put the finishing touches to their Season One Battle Pass, players will be able to enjoy a plethora of XP events — from 2X XP and weapon XP to 2X tier progression. There’s no exact date for these yet though, with IW saying: “keep an eye out for when these go live next week!”

Combat record reset and Spec Ops DLC download bug

As well as the new content, IW have also responded to a couple of technical issues. For players whose combat record was reset after the latest update, they’ve said that anyone who “had their combat record stats reset should now see their combat record displaying properly.”

Also, for players on PS4 who are getting an infinite download loop for Spec Ops DLC, they have provided a step-by-step solution here.

Since Shipment’s spawns were reportedly tuned during the previous update and Shoot House is undoubtedly the most popular map on Modern Warfare, Infinity Ward are providing fans with plenty of reasons to continue their grind ahead of Season Two.

While we look ahead to Season Two and everything that is in-store, here’s everything we know about Modern Warfare’s second season (including release date, maps and content).

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

CoD Mobile .50 GS handgun Small Arms challenges

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
