The upcoming Modern Warfare title will not have any shortage of content at launch, according to the latest major leak in the world of Call of Duty

There are just about three months remaining until the highly-anticipated release of Modern Warfare on October 25, and details about Multiplayer still remain clouded at this point.

While Infinity Ward gave players a first true glimpse of the multiplayer in their July 11 reveal of the new 2v2 Gunfight mode, many continue to rely on leaks, rumors, and speculation to keep updated.

One who’s established himself as a prominent source for supposed leaks is YouTuber ‘TheGamingRevolution,’ who dropped another major tidbit of information on July 11.

According to the latest leak, Modern Warfare will apparently have an exorbitant amount of maps and weapons in the game when it launches

In fact, according to the YouTuber, the content doesn’t stop there. He went on to say the MW will also feature both a War and battle royale mode, as well as a large maps playlist, over 200 cooperative Spec-Ops missions, and more.

Of course, there is no way to know whether any of this leaked information is legitimate until it gets officially announced by either Activision or Infinity Ward.

However, for what it’s worth, TheGamingRevolution has established at least some credibility within the CoD community after his previously leaked Gunfight mode was later confirmed to exist in MW. 

He’s also been responsible for leaking heaps of new details about MW multiplayer, such as all of the PerksKillstreaks, and competitive modes that will apparently be in the upcoming title, including a brand new “reverse-CTF” mode.

Infinity WardSo far, the new 2v2 Gunfight mode is the only gameplay players have seen of Modern Warfare multiplayer.

Modern Warfare multiplayer global reveal event announced

Players who are starving for information about MW multiplayer won’t have to stay hungry for too much longer, as Activision finally announced the date for the global reveal stream, which is not too far away!

They even gave a preview of what to expect in the game’s multiplayer by letting popular streamers unveil the Gunfight mode to the world, which, admittedly, drew some mixed feedback.

However, there are still a lot of questions that remain unanswered, so the best thing to do at this point is to just wait for the developers to show us what everyone is in store for come October.

Another Warzone streamer shows hacks live on Twitch stream

Like clockwork, another Call of Duty: Warzone streamer has exposed their in-game cheats while playing live on Twitch. And this time, the cheater did not take kindly to chat quickly trashing him.

Hackers have been the biggest issue in Warzone; with cross-play enabled between PC and console players for the first time, the CoD fanbase has been exposed to even greater levels of cheating than ever before.

Going by ‘festation’ on Twitch, yet another streamer has outed themselves as a cheater on the platform by displaying their hacks while broadcasting live. In this case, they were quickly called out on Twitter and in the chat, leading to deleted clips and a switch to Black Ops 4 gameplay.

With Twitch chat flaming him for being bad at Modern Warfare and Warzone even with hacks activated, festation proceeded to let them know that he is elite on Black Ops 4 and challenged them to 1v1 matches. He then switched over to the earlier CoD title, but not before his hacks were clipped and shipped across the internet.

As shown in the clip, downloaded before its inevitable deletion on Twitch, festation is rolling around Verdansk while knowing precisely where every single opponent is on the map. He can see players, color-coded based on their health, with a structural indication of their character model’s movement through walls.

Similarly, he also has indicators for guns, cash, and armor found throughout the map. Unfortunately for him, that sort of unfair game awareness doesn’t equate to the IQ that matters, as he is easily blown up by a Cluster Strike at one point.

This is likely why Twitch chat laid into him even more, as fans typically shame hackers for remaining inferior at the game even when gaining an unfair advantage. 

Part of the reason why he gained a decent amount of viewers on Twitch was likely because of getting exposed on Twitter. Concerned fans of the battle royale went so far as to reply to a random TimTheTatMan tweet to try and bring attention to the blatant hacking.

In response, new viewers could enjoy seeing the cheater switch over to BO4 and continue to struggle while throwing out challenges to his detractors in chat: “Get on Black Ops 4, watch me smack any of you on Hardpoint.”

This is far from the first time a streamer has been exposed for cheating. In the past, one accidentally displayed his hacks while another purposefully tried to show his off. As of yet, neither Infinity Ward nor Twitch appear to have banned festation, but repercussions seem likely following this exposure.
