This Modern Warfare update has gone live, you can check out all of the changes, new cosmetics bundles, and the full patch notes here.

Infinity Ward have been drip-feeding content and making tweaks in Modern Warfare throughout the duration of Season 3. The last update saw the return of Shipment 24/7, as well as a temporary removal of helicopters in Warzone, due to an exploit.

But with just under half of the season still left to go, what else do the developers have up their sleeve? Infinity Ward has given us a glimpse at what’s to come this week.

We’ve almost ticked off all the boxes on the Season 3 roadmap.

Iskra: New Modern Warfare Operator

Modern Warfare is getting a fresh face, as Iskra is set to make her debut (well, kind of – Iskra’s Operator bundle previously appeared in-store accidentally).

The Urzikstani native is part of the Chimera Faction and will be available with two Legendary weapon blueprints, a Legendary knife skin, a helicopter skin and an in-game watch to sport on the battlefield.

Twin Suns weapon bundle

The ‘Twin Suns’ bundle will be available in-store throughout the week, offering a ‘Parallax’ LMG weapon blueprint and a Legendary handgun blueprint.

Both weapon rigs are designed to favor a ‘silent but deadly’ approach to your game. So if you’re looking to sport them in your Warzone Custom Loadouts, be sure to equip them with Ghost and Cold-Blooded as well as the Dead Silence Field Upgrade, for the ultimate stealthy approach.

Changes coming to Modern Warfare multiplayer

Looking to up the ante? Infinity Ward are bringing back an old favorite with Demolition this week. Those that have played previous titles will be all too familiar with it.

But if you’re wondering how it works (or just looking for a refresher), check out this comprehensive strategy guide if you want to become au fait with the rules of engagement.

To top things off, a change of pace is coming to Gunfight, as Infinity Ward flick the switch on a 3v3 Knife Only playlist… Leave your firepower at the door, as you’ll need to master your craft with Throwing Knives and melee if you want to win with your trio.

‘Shoot the Rusty Ship 24/7’ is also coming to Modern Warfare, and will see Rust, Shipment and Shoot House combined into one playlist for the ultimate close-quarters moshpit!

When is the next Modern Warfare update?

The update is expected to be pushed live on May 13 at 11 AM (PT) / 2 PM (ET) / 6 PM (BST) across all platforms. Some updates for Modern Warfare have gone out at the later time of 11 PM PT, which would push it into the early hours of May 14 for other time zones.

There are a plethora of minor bug fixes expected to come as part of the patch according to the developer’s Trello board, all of which are outlined below.

Multiplayer

  • Fixed regiments causing error ‘13-71.’
  • Fixed Season 3 emblems that are appearing with developer names.
  • Resolved character model eyes — weren’t “looking the way they should.”
  • Rectified Operator’s watch animation — wasn’t appearing correctly when gesturing.

Warzone

  • Fixed corrupted white lighting that appeared while moving and firing a weapon near certain areas.
  • Fixed players being in a state where they couldn’t interact with the team’s Loadout Drop after being brought back into the match.
  • Removed ‘revive prompt’ that would appear on character models even though they were alive.

Insane Warzone exploit somehow makes Juggernauts even more powerful

As though Juggernauts weren’t already enough of a problem in Warzone, a ridiculous new bug gives them a wild advantage that could outright ruin any given match.

It’s no secret that Juggernauts have been an issue for quite some time in Warzone. Every time you get an alert that one has appeared in your lobby, you know it’s going to be an uphill battle. The near-impenetrable suits of armor take some hefty killstreaks to deal with, regular guns will rarely do the job.

They can beam you down from afar with their minigun and it’s an almost guaranteed win unless strangers team-up. Despite weeks of dealing with their extreme power, Juggernaut’s have barely been addressed. While they’ve been removed as loot inside of vaults, they’re still fairly common.

These devastating suits of armor were already enough of a challenge. However, a new bug is making them even stronger. You’re going to want to look out for this insane exploit until a new patch is deployed.

Juggernaut’s might already haunt your games but this exploit makes them even more of an issue.

Juggernaut’s will already have you on your toes if one appears in your lobby. Though now you’ll have even more of a reason to be cautious. If you hear the warning that a firesale event is about to kick off, you’re about to have a real problem on your hands.

This random-chance event has paved the way for an absurd Juggernaut exploit. Items in the Buy Station are cheaper than ever, though one goodie is often free for each player as well. If you’re in a suit of armor, it turns out that one free goodie can be redeemed an unlimited number of times.

In one example, Reddit user ‘TarleenG’ was able to secure well over a dozen self-revive kits in the blink of an eye. While only one can be used at a time, this obviously creates an unbalanced state of affairs. 

If Juggernauts can provide their full squad with self-rez, it saves funds for other powerful items. Not only that, but additional copies of the item will drop on the ground. Meaning you can always return to the Buy Station later to have an endless supply of free lives.

The only plus side to this exploit is that it’s quite rare. To have a Juggernaut suit and then get a firesale event requires some crazy luck. Though it’s clearly possible and will clearly be frustrating when it happens.

Treyarch is yet to respond to this particular issue. We’ll be sure to keep you updated when a fix comes through. Perhaps in the next major update as Black Ops Cold War’s arsenal transitions into Warzone on December 10.
