Infinity Ward ‘s May 26 playlist update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone on PS4, Xbox One and PC has officially gone live in-game.

The latest update is a bit light, since it comes in the final week before Season 4 kicks off in Warzone and Modern Warfare.

That doesn’t mean there’s no new content though, there are a number of new Multiplayer playlists and new store bundles available, alongside the return of the Plunder Pack and the Ronin Operator Bundle.

The Tracer Pack is one of two new bundles in the May 26 update.

Alongside the Plunder and Ronin packs, the two new bundles available for players this week are the Tracer Pack: Purple and Lumber Tactical pack.

As the names imply, the Purple pack unlocks several purple-colored weapon skins, while Lumber brings a unique Paul Bunyan inspired skin for Raines and plenty of other lumberjack themed cosmetics. The ‘Tall Tale’ melee weapon, for instance, looks like a ton of fun to cut enemies down to size with.

Infinity Ward
You’ll be yelling “TIMBER” as you frag out with these lumberjack cosmetics.

The meat of the May 26 update are the seven new MP playlists, which are as follows:

  • Ground War
  • Blueprint Gunfight
  • Gun Game on Gunfight maps
  • Deathmatch Domination
  • Drop Zone
  • Shoot House 24/7
  • Shipment 24/7

With Season 4 fast approaching, there were unfortunately no Warzone changes included in the update, but those should be coming along with the next season of play.

Despite a lack of new Warzone content, there was a new trailer highlighting the Plunder Pack’s return with a voice-over by Xzibit, who might know more about pimping rides than anyone else on Earth.

Following teasers previously shared by Infinity Ward, it certainly seems like the next chapter of Modern Warfare and Warzone looks set to carry on the momentum of the popular title.

So if you’re disappointed with the sparse offerings this week, don’t worry too much, because Season 4 is predicted to launch on or around Wednesday, June 3, just in time to bring us plenty of new content for the summer.

Better than Karma & FormaL? Aydan reacts to Dr Disrespect praise | CharlieIntel Podcast #11

In Episode 11 of the CharlieIntel Podcast, battle royale superstar Aydan addresses the bold praise he recently received from Dr Disrespect, which caused quite the stir on social media.

Dr Disrespect recently raised a lot of eyebrows in the world of online gaming, particularly in the Call of Duty community, after he made bold comments claiming Aydan “could be the best controller gamer the world has ever seen.”

He called the former Fortnite pro “something else,” while insinuating that he was above and beyond the likes of Karma and FormaL, two CoD legends (and in the case of FormaL, also a Halo standout) who most consider to be the ‘GOATs’ (greatest of all time) in the console/controller scene.

When asked about it on the CharlieIntel Podcast, Aydan admitted to feeling very honored to be given such praise from the Two-Time and humbly named off some other controller players who he felt also deserved such recognition.

“It’s very honorable, of course, especially from Doc, how big he is,” he said on the CharlieIntel Podcast. “I think there are a lot of other talented controller players out there. For example Shotzzy, he won a Championship in Halo and CoD recently. FormaL also played Halo, so I definitely give them a lot of props.

“I’ve played Fortnite and Warzone and I’ve been doing well so I understand where he’s [Doc] coming from and on top of that, the world record game, which probably convinced him a little more. But I’ll take it, I’m happy with that.”
