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.

How to glitch outside Nuketown ’84 for free kills in Black Ops Cold War

While Nuketown has appeared in more Call of Duty titles than any other map, the new Black Ops Cold War variant has come with a frustrating issue that allows players to break out of the map.

Nuketown has long been a fan favorite in the CoD franchise. The close-quarters map is chaotic from start to finish as players jump right into the action without having to track enemies down. It’s now in its eighth version, though the new iteration has come with a painful exploit.

If you’ve played on an older version of the map before, you’ll likely know every little nook and cranny. Nuketown ‘84 still has one of these little secrets intact as RC-XD users can race around outside the map on a special path.

Typically, this is a good way to get your explosive buddy across to the other side of the map. It can travel safely and emerge without alerting nearby enemies. However, it turns out players can now access this space as well.

This area has only ever been accessible for the tiny vehicle, until now. Players have discovered a way to break through the traditional boundaries and camp outside of the map for some of the easiest kills you’ll ever see.

From this glitched location, you get a clear line of sight to the side of one of the houses. The most broken part of being here though is that your presence doesn’t have any impact on enemy spawns. They can still appear directly in front of you without realizing, leading to some effortless kills.

Dexerto staff personally encountered this issue while playing on PC. There appears to be a location right at the edge of the playable space that avoids the ‘out of bounds’ instakill effect.

Wedging yourself between some cacti and the fence will keep you alive outside of the map. Obviously, this can be shut down after a few kills once players realize your position. However, it could be too little too late.

Treyarch is yet to address this particular issue. However, something so critical is sure to be fixed in the very near future.

In the meantime, make sure you’re keeping an eye out for pesky enemies well outside the map.
