Activision and Infinity Ward have unveiled the first official look at Season One of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which is set to be jam-packed with a lot of new content.

Season One of Modern Warfare will be releasing on December 3 for all three major platforms – PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, meaning that PS4 won’t have an exclusivity period over the others.

Furthermore, all of the content included in Season One will be free for everyone to enjoy, since Activision have ditched the Season Pass model and purchasable DLC content.

Speaking of content, there will be a tremendous amount of new stuff added, including seven-plus maps, three of which are remakes, three modes, two weapons, five-plus Spec-Ops experiences, and more.

And although it wasn’t revealed as part of this announcement, the Season One Battle Pass is also expected to launch on December 3. Here is a full breakdown of what to expect once this update goes live:

Modern Warfare Season 1 – new maps

As mentioned above, there will be at least seven new maps added in Modern Warfare during Season 1 – three multiplayer, a massive one for Ground War, and at least three for the 2v2 Gunfight mode.

All three multiplayer maps are remade versions of classic ones from the original Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare game – Crash, Vacant, Shipment. The new Ground War map will be called Post.

As for Gunfight, two maps were confirmed – Cargo and Atrium – but the announcement hints at there being more, so players will have to stay tuned to find out more about that.

Modern Warfare Season 1 – new modes

Three new modes will make their debut in Season 1 – Reinforce, Gunfight OSP, Infected, all three of which have been seen in Call of Duty before at some point.

Reinforce, which was featured in both Ghosts and Infinite Warfare, is a combination of Domination, Search & Destroy, and Search & Rescue, as it involves both capturing flags and limits on respawns.

Infected is a classic mode that’s been in a lot of past CoD titles. The way it works is one player is randomly chosen to start infecting everyone else, and matches end when either all of the players have been infected or the time runs out, and there are still some survivors.

Of the three, Gunfight OSP is the newest one, as it’s a variation of the existing version of Gunfight that’s currently in the game. In OSP, players start each round with their fists rather than a pre-determined loadout and must find and pick up weapons to engage the enemy team.

Although this announcement was full of news, there was a glaring omission when it came to revealing the Battle Pass, despite Activision having already confirmed that one will be coming for this new season.

However, a day after this Season 1 reveal, dataminers were able to access and leak the entire Battle Pass, including the rewards for all of the 104 Tiers.

If you’re looking to one-shot enemies in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War with a shotgun, there’s an incredible Hauer 77 loadout that will help you dominate your Multiplayer matches in no time. 

Shotguns are back in the secondary slot in Treyarch‘s Black Ops Cold War and players are loving the one-shot potential of the weapons. Currently, there are only two shotguns in-gamem with those being the Gallo SA12 and Hauer 77.

When comparing the weapons, the Hauer 77 comes out on top for base firepower but the Gallo SA12 has a significantly faster rate of fire. Both have their place in Multiplayer, but when making your choice consider your playstyle and which weapon suits you best.

The Hauer 77 is the shotty players unlock first at level 7 and is the weapon we’ll be covering today. Here’s one of the best loadouts for the Hauer 77.

There are multiple great attachment options for the Hauer 77.

Here’s how you need to kit out your Hauer 77 shotgun for the most effective multiplayer loadout.

Hauer 77 loadout Attachments

  • Muzzle: Duckbill Choke
  • Barrel: 25.2 Task Force
  • Body: SWAT 5mW Laser Sight
  • Stock: Shotgun Stock
  • Handle: Serpent Wrap

Primary Weapon

  • M16


  • Perk 1: Tactical Mask + Flak Jacket
  • Perk 2: Scavenger + Tracker
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Gung-Ho

Wild Card

  • Perk Greed


  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Stimshot
  • Field Upgrade: Trophy System

This loadout strictly focuses on dominating opponents at close range with the shotgun. The Task Force Barrell increases the Hauer’s damage output at close quarters by 45%. Alongside the SWAT 5mW Laser Sight, the weapon has unbelievably effective hip-fire. The addition of the Shotgun Stock increases sprint to fire time by 15%. This allows players to run around the map and pull out their gun with ease when it’s needed.

In terms of choosing a primary weapon, the M16 provides this loadout with a medium to long-range option for players. However, the M16 is replaceable with any other assault rifle you prefer.

The M16 provides players with a long to medium range option.

In terms of perks, the six slots provided by Perk Greed allows this class to shine at close range while remaining undetected by enemies. On top of this, the Hauer struggles with its ammo usage so running Scavenger eliminates this issue. The addition of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask makes this combination heavily resistant to enemy equipment and capable of clearing areas quickly.

Finally, the equipment choices are fairly standard but running Stimshot in the tactical slot is a must. After rushing into a room and taking multiple close-quarter gunfights, the Stimshot is ideal in preparing for your next encounter with an enemy.

Now, all there’s to do is make this Hauer 77 loadout and try it out in Multiplayer for yourself.
