Infinity Ward reveal what’s coming to Modern Warfare ahead of Season 2

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.

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).

Loadout Drops are ruining Warzone matches thanks to bizarre glitch

Loadout Drops can now be added to the list of potential threats in Warzone, as unlucky Call of Duty players still grinding the battle royale have been hit with a new game-breaking bug that makes it impossible to win.

Infinity Ward’s hugely popular battle royale is into its sixth season now. Despite plenty of iteration and tons of updates since launch, new bugs continue to pop up. The latest will have you questioning every Loadout Drop until a fix is deployed.

Loadout Drops are absolutely vital in Warzone. It’s the only way to secure the most powerful weapons in the game and kit your Operator out with some important perks. However, it turns out they also have some critical downsides in the latest update.

Rather than grabbing a set of weapons and being on your way, there’s a chance that Loadout Drops now ruin your match. Here’s what you need to be cautious of.

Be careful where you call your Loadout Drops in and how quickly you access them.

While running through a game on October 25, Reddit user ‘tharimrattler’ was thrown off guard by a Loadout Drop. To begin with, it landed in a rather awkward spot atop a street sign. Though what followed was far more awkward.

The player selected their Loadout almost instantly once the menu appeared. They were likely spamming the select button straight away as they had their favorite setup as the top class option. Unfortunately, choosing the Loadout this fast came with some complications. The progress bar for ‘Capturing’ the crate remained on screen.

No matter what they did, how far they moved from the drop, or what buttons they pressed, this bar stayed in effect. While that may not seem like a huge deal, this is what prevented them from shooting, swapping weapons, and using any form of equipment. For the rest of the game, they were quite literally defenseless.

Plenty of other players chimed in, adding they’ve also encountered the strange bug. It’s clearly not a one-off issue but there’s no telling how common it is just yet. You’ll need to be extra careful when interacting with Supply Drops until next update.

If you get hit with this particular glitch, there’s no proper way to deal with it.

Other issues can be fought through but for the Loadout Drop bug, it more or less means game over. If you’re downed, there’s a chance you might regain control in the Gulag. Though even that could seriously hinder if not ruin your run.

Infinity Ward is yet to comment on the issue but something this severe will likely be an immediate priority. Keep your eyes peeled for updates over the next few days.
