New information has surfaced about the campaign of the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare title, revealing further details about the story’s elements and its approximate overall length. 

Modern Warfare was officially confirmed to be the 2019 Call of Duty installment on May 31, kick-starting what should be five months of pure hype and anticipation.

The May 31 reveal event was based mainly around the game’s campaign, and now new details have revealed further information about what is being called the most controversial single-player story in CoD history.

“Emotional” MW campaign to feature ‘collateral damage score’

In an interview with PCGamesN, Studio Art Director Joel Emslie and Campaign Director Jacob Minkoff discussed how emotional the MW campaign is going to be, putting players into the harsh reality of the modern world.

The pair revealed that the heavy nature of the plot has already caused multiple playtesters to cry, suggesting that there will be moments in the story that will play heavily on players’ emotions.

They also revealed that the campaign will feature a brand new feature called ‘collateral damage score,’ which is a rank that will be given to players based on how many or few innocent civilians they kill during the playthrough.

“If you kill no innocents and you evaluate all unknowns correctly then you’ll end up with a rank A. And if you kill more than three you will get a rank F. There are rewards associated with being as accurate with your threat assessment as possible.”

Approximate length of MW campaign

Speaking about the MW campaign with GameReactorEU, Infinity Ward’s Studio Narrative Director gave players the first concrete hint about how long the campaign will be, revealing that it will be “traditional Call of Duty campaign length.”

The campaigns of previous CoD titles developed by Infinity Ward have run around seven to eight hours in length, so players should expect the MW playthrough to take about that long to complete.

This estimation is, of course, an approximation and subject to change, so the final exact time likely won’t be officially determined until sooner before the game released on October 25.

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

CoD Mobile .50 GS handgun Small Arms challenges

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
