Members of the Infinity Ward team confirmed that versions of the classic handheld digital pet are making their way to Modern Warfare watches in a future update, after images of the “Tomogunchi” watches appeared on the in-game store.

At long last, the combatants of Call of Duty Modern Warfare have something worth fighting for. Not for ranks, not for experience, not for a positive KD, but for a little digital pet that will live on your watch forever as long as you remember to change your battery.

On January 10, a Reddit user on the Modern Warfare subreddit posted an image of a watch called the Tomogunchi, a clear and obvious play on Tamagotchi that appears similar in design and function to the original watches released in the mid 90s.

The user, Pandamanlma0, said that he bought the Tomogunchi as part of a bundle for 1000 CoD points, but said that they used it throughout two in-game hours “with tons of kills but nothing happened.”

They also said that they tried both inspecting and interacting with the watch during the game, but nothing happened except that it would “make a noise” if you got a kill and used the ‘interact with watch’ emote immediately after.

Joel Emslie, Art Director at Infinity Ward, quickly jumped in to provide an explanation. Apparently, an error with the player’s in-game store “broke the street date,” allowing access to a bundle that wasn’t supposed to go live yet. This evidently affected some other players too who could get their hands on the bundle with the watch in it.

However, the dev pointed out that because of this, the watch wouldn’t function properly until the release date. Regarding that date, the developer said that a full round of testing was still needed, so an official release date couldn’t be given.

When it comes to the noise that played after getting a kill, it could be an interesting mechanic in which the player feeds their Tomogunchi with kills, but have to remember to do so right afterward. Potentially, your creature could make a sad noise if you get killed without having fed them during that life.

Modern Warfare so far sports a collection of stylish watches, but all are purely cosmetic, or used for tracking stats like KD and rank.

Infinity WardThe Skill Track 55 tracks your rank progress, and can even tell time as well!

The developers so far haven’t given any indication that any rewards will come with successfully raising your Tomogunchi from newborn through childhood up to adulthood. But, if raising a digital pet all by yourself should be its own reward.

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.
