Call of Duty developers Infinity Ward have pushed through the first update in Modern Warfare, and we’ve got all of the information you need – including the patch notes.

The October 25 update was the first in Modern Warfare since the full version of the game launched earlier in the day.

The patch is live and available now on all three platforms, taking up 1.804 GB of space on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and 7 GB on PC.

A large portion of the update was dedicated to fixing some of the persisting issues and bugs in the game, while adding new content in the form of two game modes.

You can find all of the details for this patch below, including the official patch notes as they were provided by Infinity Ward.

Infinity WardGround War was arguably the most popular mode during the Modern Warfare Beta.

Two new modes added – Ground War and Free-for-All

This update has added two new game modes to Modern Warfare multiplayer – Ground War and Free-for-All. 

Ground War was arguably the most popular mode during the Beta, with players enjoying the impressive large-scale 32v32 action that had never been seen before in Call of Duty. While not available right at launch, the developers took the players’ positive feedback into account and added it shortly thereafter.

Free-for-All has always been a popular mode for those who enjoy playing CoD without having to worry about being let down by teammates. Unlike Ground War, it wasn’t featured during the Beta weekends, so time will tell whether it will work well within Modern Warfare.

Crashes and bug fixes

As is usually the case, the launch-day version of Modern Warfare still had some issues that needed sorting out, primarily the game crashing on all platforms.

This update has improved the game’s stability to help prevent such crashes, as well as addressed nine other bugs affecting the campaign and multiplayer and two issues specific to PC. 

Here are the patch notes for the October 25 v1.04 update, as posted on Reddit

CoD Mobile devs confirm iconic weapon coming in Season 14

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.

Ghost in CoD mobile and the Crossfire map
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.
