Call of Duty developers Infinity Ward released an update for Modern Warfare that adds the ‘Face Off Grind’ variant of Gunfight, brought back the fan-favorite Shoot House 24/7 playlist and more.
With Season 1 on its last legs in Modern Warfare, developers Infinity Ward have injected the final bits of new content into the game before turning their full attention to Season 2.
While this February 4 update is a relatively minor one compared to the patches released in recent weeks, it still introduced Face Off Grind, a new version of the popular 2v2 Gunfight mode.
The patch also returned both the Shoot House 24/7 and Shipment 24/7 playlists to multiplayer and added some new modes to both Hardcore and 10v10 Mosh Pit.
A full breakdown of everything in this update can be found below, including the official patch notes as provided by Infinity Ward.
Face Off Grind – new Gunfight variant
With how popular Gunfight is in Modern Warfare, it’s no surprise that Infinity Ward keep churning out new versions of it for players to enjoy.
This newest variant, called Face Off Grind, combines the 2v2 playlist with the classic multiplayer mode called Grind, which itself is a mix of both Kill Confirmed and Hardpoint.

“Gunfight Grind introduces new strategies to the single life Gunfight mode and the classic Multiplayer mode Grind,” reads the official description. “This mash-up of play styles gives an intense fast-paced feel to the close-quarters design of the Gunfight arena.”
What else is new?
The rest of this update focused on shuffling around some of the available playlists in multiplayer. With Shoot House 24/7 and Shipment 24/7 both being back, players can pick and choose between the two playlists for the first time, since they’ve never been featured at the same time before.
Those who enjoy Hardcore can now play Shoot the Ship, a playlist combining both Shoot House and Shipment, as well as Team Deathmatch, Domination, Kill Confirmed and Headquarters all added to the Hardcore 10v10 Mosh Pit.
As for the regular 10v10 Mosh Pit, both Kill Confirmed and Headquarters are now available.
