Call of Duty developers Infinity Ward have hinted at more changes coming to Warzone battle royale in Modern Warfare Season 3, including an overhaul to ground loot as well as some new modes

On April 7, Infinity Ward rolled out new details on what’s to come in Season 3 for the battle royale component to Modern Warfare’s ecosystem, including both new content and changes.

Several new modes and playlists will be introduced throughout the new season, but that’s not all – the developers plan on making some major adjustments to the default loot that can be found on the Verdansk map.

Warzone is getting new modes and playlists in Season 3.

New modes and playlists

IW revealed that they plan on mixing up Warzone’s formula with more playlists for players to choose from, in addition to Solos, Trios, the brand new Quads, Plunder, and Blood Money that are all in the game already.

These new modes, which fans can expect to be sprinkled throughout the weeks to come, will be themed around specific kinds of guns, so players will have to conform to the limited variety in order to survive.

“During the season, expect to see more modes and playlists that change the loot pool to specific weapon types, and high action modes such as ‘Scopes and Scatter Guns’ (only sniper rifles & shotguns), in addition to other surprises,” the developers wrote.

Warzone is going to have constant “meta updates” throughout the new season.

Ground loot overhaul

Default items and weapons found on the floor and in chests are an integral part of Warzone, even with the fact that a lot of players opt to buy their own Loadout Drops once they have the requisite $8,500 in hand.

In order to freshen things up, Infinity Ward will be tweaking what kind of gear will be available in Season 3, including the addition of silenced and non-silenced gun variants, and the introduction of “new weapons and blueprints in Supply Boxes and ground loot.”

The idea is to inject variety into this aspect of the game and allow players to adopt various play-styles depending on what they come across while looting, including “that final ‘guns blazing’ shootout at the end” of matches.

The changes to Warzone will let players experiment with different playstyles.

This update is expected to launch on Wednesday, April 8, at 11 PM PT (April 7) / 2 AM ET / 7 AM BST.

CoD Mobile devs confirm iconic weapon coming in Season 14

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have revealed that one iconic CoD weapon is coming in 2021’s Season 1 update, and it should be recognizable to any long-time CoD fan.

For years, Call of Duty fans have begged Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Activision, and anyone else who will listen, for a game that takes the best part of all previous releases and puts them into one.

Increasingly, we’re seeing more map remakes, classic weapons returning, and even character crossovers thanks to Warzone, but it’s CoD Mobile that really fits the bill of what that all-encompassing CoD game would be.

The mobile game has maps from CoD 4: Modern Warfare, Black Ops 1, as well as weapons from Advanced Warfare and even Black Ops 3 and 4. With the first major update of 2021 just around the corner, the devs have started teasing what’s coming next, and we’re getting more throwbacks.

CoD Mobile has characters, maps, and weapons from almost every modern Call of Duty game.

Even though CoD Mobile is currently, as of writing, in Season 13, when the first major update of 2021 hits, we’ll be back to Season 1. Just like how Fortnite is now Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Regardless, when players finally get to play the new season update, they’ll be able to wield the FAMAS. Yes, the iconic Call of Duty weapon, that has been in a whole host of CoD games is finally arriving in CoD Mobile.

The devs confirmed the news on January 16, tweeting out their first teaser for the new season. “A new weapon is approaching! Can you guess what it is?” they said, with an image and it’s fairly obvious that the weapon in question is the FAMAS.

The name of the iconic weapon might get a slight tweak when it is added to CoD Mobile. The devs have tweaked the names of other recognizable guns before, just to give it a new feel for the mobile game.

There’s also the question of whether it’ll be as powerful as it was, say, back in Black Ops 1. Hopefully, we don’t have to wait too long.
