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.

Infinity WardPlayers can now enjoy the Call of Duty: Warzone map on their own.

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.

Warzone

Infinity WardQueue times for Call of Duty: Warzone’s new Solos playlist were astronomical at the start.

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?

Infinity WardThe new 10v10 Atlas Superstore 24/7 playlist should make the new Season 2 map a lot more playable.

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.

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 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

  • Gora Dam
  • Arklov Peak Military Base
  • Karst River Quarry

Sector Two – West

  • Verdansk International Airport
  • Storage Town
