Call of Duty developers Infinity Ward have released a new playlist update for Modern Warfare and Warzone – one that’s brought back Battle Royale Quads, several new modes in multiplayer and more.

The developers’ decision to remove BR Quads in favor of the Realism version wasn’t positively received by the player-base, so, just a few days later, IW have brought it back in their June 23 patch.

This means that the regular BR versions of Solos, Duos, Trios and Quads are now all available at the same time, along with Plunder Quads replacing Blood Money in the game’s other playlist option.

As for multiplayer, the devs have introduced several new modes, including the debut of All or Nothing, Face Off and Stir-Crazy 10v10.

Modern Warfare & Warzone June 23 playlist update

Today’s playlist update for #ModernWarfare and #Warzone are now live across all platforms!

  • Boots on the Ground War
  • Realism Mosh Pit
  • All or Nothing
  • Face Off
  • Stir-Crazy (10v10)
  • Plunder Quads (Replaces Blood Money)
  • BR Quads (Replaces Realism BR)
Infinity WardRegular BR Quads are back in Warzone following the June 23 Modern Warfare update.

New multiplayer modes explained

All or Nothing is a brand new variant of the classic Free-For-All mode, except instead of being able to use their desired loadouts, players will spawn in with the bare minimum – a Throwing Knife, empty pistol, and basic perks. The objective is to scavenge around for more gear and loot, such as ammo and better weapons, and use them to reach the 20 kills that are necessary to win.

Face Off combines Gunfight with the more usual multiplayer modes, such as Domination, Kill Confirmed, Grind and more, which are all played on the smaller maps used in the popular 3v3 playlist.

Last but not least, Stir-Crazy 10v10 – a playlist that takes regular 6v6 maps and adds an extra four players on each team, which results in – you guessed it: craziness!

Infinity WardModern Warfare’s new Chaos 10v10 playlist uses regular 6v6 maps but with an extra four players on each team.

New Gaz Operator bundle

As for new cosmetic items, the playlist update also sees the Gaz Operator bundle make its way into the shop, featuring Kyle ‘Gaz’ Garrick as the newest playable Operator. Gaz was one of the characters from the Modern Warfare campaign and a member of the Task Force 141, but older CoD fans will also remember him from the CoD4 single-player story.

The set includes two weapon blueprints – Fair Brass and Tanker – as well as a new camo for the Kali Sticks, called Hit Sticks.

Some were expecting today’s update to be larger, such as rolling out some of the new mid-Season 4 content that’s in the official roadmap, as well as the highly-anticipated weapon balancing patch that’s supposed to be nerfing the Grau.

That will be coming on another day, presumably in early July, so players will have to suffice with just new playlists and modes for now.

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.
