Call of Duty developers Infinity Ward have rolled out another update for Modern Warfare that’s switched up the available playlists and modes in both the multiplayer and Warzone battle royale.

With Season 4 of Modern Warfare basically having reached its midway point, Infinity Ward are looking to keep the content fresh and fun for those who enjoy multiplayer, Warzone, or both.

In multiplayer, this July 7 update has brought back the fan-favorite Gunfight Tournaments, allowing players to enjoy the 2v2 mode but in a competitive setting with exclusive rewards.

Dirty Old Houseboat, a playlist that features arguably the game’s three most popular maps (Shoot House, Shipment, Rust), has also made a return, along with Realism Gun Game and a new set of modes called Bomb Objective Mosh Pit.

Infinity WardThe Bomb Objective Mosh Pit groups all the multiplayer modes that involve planting/defusing bombs.

As for Warzone, only two changes have been made – Plunder: Blood Money Quads is now available, by popular request, and Juggernaut Royale has been removed after a short stint.

Modern Warfare & Warzone July 7 patch notes

A playlist update is deploying now across Modern Warfare and Warzone!

  • Gunfight Tournaments!
  • Dirty Old Houseboat (Shoot House, Rust, Shipment)
  • Realism Gun Game
  • Bomb Objective Mosh Pit (SnD, Cyber Attack, Demo)
  • Plunder: Blood Money Quads
  • Removing Juggernaut Royale

Gunfight Tournaments

Gunfight Tournaments have been an on-and-off thing in Modern Warfare since the early days of the game. Players can enter in pairs and compete in a 16-team bracket featuring the popular 2v2 mode, unlocking XP boosts and cosmetic rewards for every round they advance.

Usually, the duo that ends up winning the whole thing gets awarded a unique and exclusive weapon blueprint that’s not available for purchase, and it appears that this time around, Infinity Ward are offering an assault rifle variant to those who finish on top.

New weapon blueprints

Speaking of weapon blueprints, this update has added several new ones to the shop, including the Alabaster and Feeding Frenzy. The Alabaster is a stark white assault rifle design that comes as part of the SERE Kit: Plunder Player Store Bundle, which Infinity Ward recommend using in the new Blood Money Quads playlist.

Feeding Frenzy, which is a shotgun themed after a bloody great white shark, is the featured blueprint in the Blood in the Water bundle.

Returning for his final event of the Call of Duty League offseason, Team Summertime’s Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards is hosting an enormous Black Ops 2 Invitational featuring former champions and popular content creators.

Throwback tournaments have been all the rage throughout the 2020 offseason and no one has been leading the charge quite like Hitch. Outside of hosting Warzone comps, his unique tournaments have spanned from Modern Warfare 2 to Black Ops 4. This time, his sights are set on 2012’s Black Ops 2.

Despite hackers ruining an early test for this particular event, the kinks have all seemingly been worked out. From former championship-winning teams to some of the biggest content creators, Hitch’s final event is set to be the biggest yet.

From how you can tune in, to every player joining the all-star Call of Duty event, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything there is to know about the Black Ops 2 Invitational.

How to watch the Black Ops 2 Invitational

The final event of the offseason is set to kick off on Wednesday, October 28. Opening matchups will be going live at 3PM EST (12PM PT) and the broadcast will likely run for most of the day.

As per usual, it’s all expected to be featured on Hitch’s own Twitch stream which we’ve embedded below. A majority of the players and creators will likely be sharing their own perspectives throughout the event as well.

Teams competing in the Black Ops 2 Invitational

Some squads feature some of the most successful Call of Duty veterans while others consist of popular streamers. Regardless, every team is stacked with FPS talent so expect some close matchups.
