Developers Infinity Ward have released another Modern Warfare update for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, adding back the Shoot House 24/7 playlist, implementing general fixes, and more.

Following the massive Season One patch and content drop on December 3, many players were upset at Infinity Ward for removing the fan-favorite Shoot House 24/7 playlist from multiplayer.

Just a day after teasing its return, the developers added it back to the playlist options on December 6 via a game settings update that also shuffled around some of the other map-mode combinations.

Infinity Ward will hope that this will at least help them get back in favor with fans, who were not only displeased because of the playlist’s removal, but also at the allegations that the developers made hidden changes with the Season One update without disclosing them in the patch notes.

A breakdown of everything included in the December 6 update can be found below, including the full patch notes.

Playlist and map-mode updates

With the return of the Shoot House 24/7 playlist, Crash 24/7 has been removed. It had initially been added to promote the newest map in Modern Warfare, a remake of the iconic Crash from the original CoD 4: MW game, but players apparently prefer Shoot House much more.

Night maps have been removed from Hardcore modes, while Grazna Raid and Arklov Peak were both added to Hardcore TDM, with the latter also being added to Hardcore Headquarters.

Docks was introduced back into the Gunfight map rotation after it had been removed due to a ridiculous visual glitch that caused a massive cargo ship to inexplicably appear crashing into the map.

General fixes

The cargo ship glitch Docks was one of eight issues that were addressed with this update. Another major one was a severe glitch with the AK-47 that allowed players to intentionally crash entire matches by using an equipped grenade launcher and the Fully Loaded perk.

The full patch notes are available below, as provided by Infinity Ward on Reddit.

Everything from new maps to incoming Operators and plenty more has all spilled out early, with new Black Ops Cold War leaks revealing a bunch of content coming with the Season 1 update.

We’re still a few days out from the arrival of Season 1, though new Black Ops Cold War leaks are coming through almost every day. From classic modes making a return, to unique in-game events on the horizon, we’ve already got a decent idea of what to expect.

However, things haven’t stopped there. The latest set of datamined content has uncovered our first-look at Season 1 maps, Operators, and more. While the names of incoming maps may have been revealed a while back, we now have a proper look at all four additions coming soon.

Additionally, there’s also a unique Season 1 Starter pack that comes boasting some exclusive rewards. Here’s a rundown on everything we now know thanks to the latest leaks.

First look at Black Ops Cold War Season 1 maps

Up first, we’ve got a quick look at four new locations coming in Season 1. They’re bite-sized pictures that simply reveal the theme of each new map. The first appears to be some kind of game show set as camera equipment and bright signs can be spotted throughout.

Next up looks to be a darker map, perhaps something underground or even a subway system given the briefcases nearby. It may have been an evacuation site. Only time will tell for this one.

The third map pictured seems to be a wide-open locale with some kind of rocket in the center. Maybe a testing facility or a fully-fledged launch site somewhere in the United States.

Last but not least, we have a simple map that looks to feature some amount of office space, shelving, and a patriotic statue of sorts. If earlier intel holds up, one of these new locations will be a fresh Zombies experience. The first appears to be confirmed for Gunfight only, meaning a close-quarters design for 2v2 combat. While the remaining two maps are for core multiplayer game modes.

It’s worth noting that not all of these are confirmed to be launching on day one. While the major update is set to introduce a ton of this new content, some of these maps could be drip-fed throughout the season to keep players coming back. 

First look at Black Ops Cold War Season 1 Operator Skins

What would a new Season in Call of Duty be without some fresh cosmetics? A few of your favorite Operators appear to be getting some new outfits in Season 1. First up is Woods with a new winter look, rocking some snow goggles, thick gloves, a beanie, and a coat.

Next is Sims who has a more casual look this time around. Rather than dressing the part for a mission, he’s wearing a simple top with some cool shades and a hat.

Last but not least is some love for the Warsaw Pact. Portnova has a new skin this Season with a vibrant red top and a matching beret.

Also part of the leaks is an entirely new skin that could be the level 100 unlock in the Season 1 Battle Pass.

This Operator comes equipped for battle with multiple grenades and ammunition pouches on his upper body. Not to mention an imposing mask to cover his presumably scarred face.

Another new Operator wears a gas mask, only has one eye, and could not be more intimidating in an all-black outfit. 

These come alongside a previously leaked Operator skin for Adler. There’s no way of telling how to unlock these items; some might be tied to the Battle Pass, while others could be acquired through challenges like their current variants.
