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.

Ridiculous custom Call of Duty Gun Game mode goes viral on TikTok

A testament to the Call of Duty community’s creativity, a new custom game mode has gone viral on TikTok after a user shared their friends’ absurd Modern Warfare Gun Game settings.

CoD fans are familiar with creating custom games and playing wacky modes. Whether it’s hopping into a 1v1 to settle a beef with a buddy or running some Prop Hunt, the FPS aficionados have a variety of ways to blow off steam. 

With recent drama and malaise surrounding skill-based matchmaking (SBMM) in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, it should be no surprise that some players have gotten imaginative and begun controlling their own destiny in custom modes. 

That’s the case for TikTok user ‘thedillygang,’ who decided to test the limits of their friend group’s love with an absurdly difficult Gun Game variant. While the mode hasn’t been added to Black Ops Cold War, it can still be played in 2019’s Modern Warfare.

@thedillygangBy far the most infuriating thing i’ve ever done on COD. I call this mode Blood Pressure 😈😈 duet this with a clip of your squad playing it ##fyp ##cod♬ original sound – DillyGang

As DillyGang explains, this custom match is built solely on the principle of maximum difficulty: “I just made a game mode on Modern Warfare that will test you and your friends’ trust, it will make you hate each other. This game mode took us 30 minutes to beat.”

As for why it took 30 minutes? That’s because the mode is a Gun Game with unlimited time, 300 health, and…every single death sets you back a whopping five weapons (as opposed to the traditional single setback).

How to set up custom “Blood Pressure” Gun Game in Modern Warfare

  1. Scroll to “Private Match, Trials & GameBattles” at the bottom of Modern Warfare’s Multiplayer options and select Custom Game
  2. Go to Game Setup
  3. Choose any map you’d like, although the Gunfight options are best for a smaller group
  4. Set mode to Gun Game (found in the Alternate Modes column)
  5. Go to Game in Game Rules and set Time Limit to Unlimited
  6. Go to Player in Game Rules and set Max Health to 300, Health Regeneration to Very Slow
  7. Go to Advanced in Game Rules and set Setbacks to 5 Weapons
  8. Select Options, save the mode and go test the bounds of your friendship

While the idea of sweating it out and arguing with your friends may not sound enticing to the average person, CoD fans are a different breed and enjoy few things more than stirring the pot of trash talk. 

@thedillygangAs requested, here’s our gameplay of “Blood Pressure”. Our hatred for eachother is unsurmountable. Duet this w y’alls gameplay😈 ##fyp ##cod ##dilly♬ original sound – DillyGang

That love of banter can perhaps be evidenced by nothing as strong as the fact that this custom mode has gone viral. Especially when DillyGang explained the experience like some recounting a personal trauma: “We were screaming the entire game … My blood pressure is crazy right now.”

Calling it the “Blood Pressure” mode, the gameplay showcases just how intense the custom match is. Now, we just wait to find out if TikTok fans try this out and themselves and discover if their friendships are able to survive the test. And then we’ll see if community feedback is enough for Treyarch and Raven Software to bump Gun Game up on their to-do list.
