New leaks for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare suggests players will be getting a heavy dose of nostalgia with upcoming DLC that will bring back popular maps from the franchise’s past.

Infinity Ward has so far struck gold with their highly anticipated reimagining for the legendary Modern Warfare series. The game surpassed $600 million in sales during its launch weekend alone, and it’s nowhere near done climbing.

While the studio has breathed new life into the MW name with its surreal campaign and slower approach to multiplayer, it seems like it’s going to take players to the franchise’s roots by bringing fans to iconic locales

Infinity WardSome of Call of Duty’s more storied maps could be coming back for the 2019 entry.

In a new leak via YouTuber ‘TheGamingRevolution,’ it seems like maps such as Crash, Vacant, Rust, Scrapyard and a lot more will soon be coming to the latest iteration of CoD.

If the information turns out to be true, fan-favorite maps from Modern Warfare 2 will be making a huge comeback as players have been clamoring for the revival of the iconic 1v1 arena Rust, the claustrophobic setting of Vacant, the chaotic battlefield of Scrapyard, and nostalgic scenes of Terminal.

Longtime fans will soon be able to relive some of the most memorable settings that garnered Infinity Ward high praise for its map design.

Players of the new game have been loving IW’s new shooter so far, but a major point of contention has been with the multiplayer map experience.

While a lot of the maps complement the new release’s slower, methodical approach to combat, the community has been asking for the studio to give back some of what made the franchise so successful.

It seems like Infinity Ward will address those concerns by reintroducing tried-and-true maps from the series’ history with an expected launch for the first DLC pack as December 10, although it remains unconfirmed.

The potential of these maps in the new game is bound to get hundreds of Modern Warfare players hyped but leaks like this should always be taken with a grain of salt.

Although, it goes without saying that the news will be an instant crowd-pleaser as Infinity Ward and Activision prepares for a crucial holiday season for Modern Warfare.

Black Ops Cold War dev responds to broken Zombies XP growth

Treyarch has responded to a new issue that is slowing down Black Ops Cold War solo zombies players from leveling up their weapons. They intend to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

Players reported the exp growth on their weapons had become increasingly slow. Some experimentation from Reddit user MaharaDTD discovered that it wasn’t impacting public lobby players, but was rather isolated to solo players and those on high round grinds.

Some players reported their guns not leveling up at all between rounds 30 and 100, while others, who played predominantly in co-op lobbies, reported almost no change at all.

The issues come amid a double XP event which should be the perfect time to grind out Zombies games, though. These problems stem from Treyarch combating an XP exploit where players could restart lobbies over and over again to wrack up big amounts – and the knock on effect has been completely ruining games.

Treyarch dev responds to Black Ops Cold War Zombies weapon XP issues

Treyarch dev Josh ‘Foxhound’ Torres announced that their team had confirmed the issue with limited XP growth, responding to the lengthy Reddit discussion with a handful of comments of his own.

“I spoke with the team, and we have identified an issue that was causing lower than intended Weapon XP in both solo Zombies matches and later Zombies rounds. We are looking to release a fix for both of these as soon as possible,” he said.

Torres also confirmed there will not be an extension to the 2XP weekend for zombies players, despite pressure from the community.

He said: “I shared what the team had to share, and then I kept them updated on the community sentiment and conversations. The team investigated and found actual issues. We’ll be fixing them, and we’ll have more 2XP events in the future.”

This means zombies players will need to wait patiently for the chance to grind 2XP boosts and upgrade their guns.
