Modern Warfare’s latest update also featured the return of the iconic crossbow weapon, which has been in multiple titles of the franchise since its first appearance in the original Black Ops.
The iconic crossbow has made its return to yet another Call of Duty title.
Although Crossbows have been featured in many CoD titles over the years, it has not always been the most viable of weapons and was rarely seen in many cases outside of the classic Sticks & Stones playlist.
To many viewers’ surprise, the 15 kill streak reward was easily shut down with just a single explosive bolt from the newly-introduced weapon, meaning that it could potentially diminish a player’s efforts in-game.
Ricardo029 expressed that the use of overpowered crossbow against Juggernaut’s was “not even fair,” after revealing the perfect counter to what would normally be a terrifying challenge.
Although many players will probably be looking to add the crossbow to some of their current loadouts as a precaution, the new weapon could possibly be the target of some nerfs in a future patch.
It is unlikely that Infinity Ward intended on the Crossbow being so powerful against the Juggernaut suit, however, they have not yet revealed any plans for changing the weapon on their developer Trello board.
From Blueprints to weapon charms and plenty more, Warzone’s new Haunting of Verdansk event has dropped 16 unique items across the map. Here’s everything you need to know to claim them all.
Verdansk has been well and truly taken over in the new Halloween-themed event. Horror film icons are available to unlock in new bundles, a spooky nighttime version of the battle royale has been deployed, and there’s even a new Zombie Royale Limited-Time Mode (LTM)
Activision has clearly gone all out with this haunting takeover, but there’s still more to it than meets the eye. On top of everything outlined in the new roadmap, Warzone also comes boasting a ton of free items in the new event. Just for exploring the map, 16 unique unlocks can be yours.
There’s a special treat waiting for you at the very end as well. From an overview of each reward to where they can all be found, we’ve got you covered with a complete rundown.
How Trick or Treat works in Warzone
From October 20 through November 3, there will be plenty of fresh content for Warzone players to sink their teeth into. Featured throughout the event is a new trick or treat system full of goodies and surprises.
Boxes are scattered around Verdansk for you to find. Some might contain rare weapon Blueprints, though others could come with a “terrifying fright.” There’s no guarantee that you’ll get a reward from every box you open, but they’re well worth your time.
There’s no need to worry about these boxes ruining your run either. You’ll get a fright, but the ‘trick’ part of this trick or treat gimmick deals “no damage,” Activision confirmed.
Upon claiming all 16 rewards on offer, a Legendary Assault Rifle Blueprint will be all yours. The boxes are spread out far and wide so be sure to use our guide below to hunt them all down.
Trick or Treat locations in Warzone
Trick or Treat boxes can be found all across Verdansk
Just like regular Supply Boxes in Warzone, these special crates are randomized. There’s no guarantee that one will be waiting for you at every single location in a single match. It might take some time across a good number of games over the next few weeks of the event.
There are five sections of the map that have a chance to contain Trick or Treat boxes, with two to four points of interest at each. You’ll need to claim rewards at each area over time as some are exclusive to certain points of the map. In other words, you can’t drop into the same location over and over expecting to find unique rewards each time.
Once you’ve claimed the rewards from a specific part of the map, a checkmark will appear in-game. Use this as you advance from one location to another, just to make sure you’re crossing every section off the list. A full rundown of every possible location can be found below.
Sector One – North
Arklov Peak Military Base
Karst River Quarry
Sector Two – West
Verdansk International Airport
Sector Three – Southwest
Novi Grazna Hills
Sector Four – Central and South
BCH TV Station
Sector Five – East
Gorengrad Lumber Yard
Port of Verdansk
Zordaya Prison Complex (Gulag)
