Infinity Ward have announced another Free Access Multiplayer Weekend alongside a set of updates to their Call of Duty: Warzone and Multiplayer playlists.

Following the release of Season 4, Infinity Ward rolled out a smaller update on June 12 that enabled a Free Multiplayer Access Weekend for Warzone players with playlist changes, and Modern Warfare’s multiplayer playlists are being updated too.

The Free Access Weekend will give players who don’t own the full game a chance to play seven Gunfight and five MP maps, including the two newest ones – Zhokov Scrapyard and Hardhat.

 

Other than that, as far as multiplayer is concerned, the update has added a new playlist called Weekend Warfare, which features various maps and modes, brought back 3v3 Gunfight, to replace the Blueprint variant of the mode, as well as added Gun Game back in after it had been temporarily removed.

Modern Warfare playlist additions

  • Gunfight 3v3 (replacing Blueprint Gunfight)
  • Weekend Warfare (various maps and game modes)
  • Gun Game (returning to Quick Play filter)

This free multiplayer access will be available until Monday, June 15 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, so if you’re interested in partaking, make sure not to miss out on this opportunity.

On the Warzone side of things, the update has made a couple of minor tweaks to the playlists, removing Blood Money and adding BR Quads and Solos into their own menu.

Warzone playlist changes

  • Removing Blood Money
  • BR Quads and Solos moved to their own menu
  • Access to Modern Warfare 3v3 Gunfight
  • Access to Modern Warfare Multiplayer (various maps and game modes)

Gunfight is one of Modern Warfare’s most tense modes, as the 3v3 option prioritizes teamwork and caution.

Some may be surprised to see Infinity Ward take away Blood Money (also known as Plunder) from Warzone’s playlist options. Instead, players can choose from the recently launched Warzone Rumble, base Solos, Duos, Trios, and Quads modes along with some multiplayer options for a limited time.

This is, once again, a tremendous opportunity for Infinity Ward to show off some of its Modern Warfare options to players who only own Warzone and, for Warzone players, a great chance to level up guns and even unlock some that are nigh impossible to with the battle royale’s slower pace of play.

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.
