Infinity Ward have released another update for Modern Warfare which includes the addition of a Solos playlist to Call of Duty’s newest battle royale, Warzone.
All of the hype in the Call of Duty world is very much still centered around the recently-released Warzone, and now Infinity Ward have added more fuel to the fire.
The addition of Solos is the first post-launch content added to the battle royale, and it allows players to queue in alone and not have to worry about constantly coming up against teams of three.
There was also a plethora of general fixes pushed through for bugs and glitches currently plaguing Warzone; this is the first patch since the BR released, so a lot of fixes were expected.
Outside of the BR, the update added several new playlists to Multiplayer, including a 10v10 Atlas Superstore 24/7, which should make the massive map a lot more playable.
Here’s a full breakdown of everything included in this update, as well as the official patch notes.
March 17 was a big day for Warzone to say the least, as the arrival of Solos plugged up the queue lines and caused players who wanted to try out the BR’s newest mode to wait a while before they could get in.
It’s not clear if this is a permanent addition or a limited-time mode, but the community will undoubtedly want it to stay for as long as possible. Trios, the standard playlist, is still available.
As for the bug fixes, there were plenty, including one that now grants credit for kills to the player who downed the enemy, rather than the one who finished them off. This was one of the biggest issues that people complained about at launch, and it’s finally been addressed.
What else is new?
In Multiplayer, the update added three new playlists: Cranked Kill Confirmed, Mercenary Moshpit, and the aforementioned 10v10 Atlas Superstore 24/7. One of the main slights against the new map, which was added at the start of Season 2, was that it’s way too big for standard modes. Now that there’s a 10v10 playlist, it should crank up the amount of action.
Infinity Ward also made sure to honor St. Patrick’s Day in-game by adding a festive theme to Gunfight, as well as a new cosmetics bundle called Clover and Out.
The set costs 1,100 CoD Points to purchase, and it includes six items in total – an Operator skin, two weapon camos, two weapon charms, and a sticker.
