Modern Warfare developers Infinity Ward have confirmed that they will be extending Season One of the hit FPS title and bringing a new weapon to the game.

Modern Warfare was released in October 2019, and Season One began in December, a couple of months later. It brought with it revamped classic maps Crash, Vacant and Shipment, various other multiplayer modes and two new weapons.

The original end date for Season One was scheduled to be January 28, but Infinity Ward have now revealed that they will be kicking off Season Two at a later date.

Season One brought a bunch of new content to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

In a blog post published on January 15, Infinity Ward shared that a whole host of new challenges, as well as a new weapon, will be introduced to the game.

The blog post said: “Over the next few weeks, a host of new items and challenges will arrive, including an in-game Challenge to earn the new Crossbow weapon, more remixed game modes, new playlists, and more in the Store to discover. To make room for all that activity, we are making a one-time extension of Season One – it’s now ending on February 11.”

It also confirmed that during this time, there will be “2XP, 2X Weapon XP and 2X Tier Progression,” to help players achieve max rank and max level of their weapons before heading in to the new season.

Season Two is now set to start two weeks later than originally planned.

The community reaction was somewhat mixed, as is to be expected with an announcement such as this. Some players believed it a waste of time, while others thanked IW for giving them more time to rank up.

‘Jaycall23’ on Twitter said called the decision “pathetic,” citing the fact that any decent player is already the top level.

Meanwhile, ‘The Alex’ commended the developers on their “awesome work.”

It has been rumored for a while that the Crossbow will be coming to Modern Warfare, and it seems the time has finally come.

With all-new maps, modes, and weapons on the way, players will have to be a little more patient and wait a couple of weeks before they get to enhance their Modern Warfare experience.

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.
