Call of Duty developers Infinity Ward have confirmed that Modern Warfare will soon be graced with new Shoot the Ship modes, as well as a new master weapon camouflage, above the existing Damascus.

In an April 24 community update, Infinity Ward confirmed a host of bug fixes and adjustments will be coming to Modern Warfare in the game’s next significant update, scheduled for wide release on April 28.

However, away from pre-emptive patch notes, the developers also confirmed that a host of new content will be dropping very soon.

Shoot the Ship returning to Modern Warfare

It has been confirmed that Shoot the Ship, the wildly popular mash-up of Shipment and Shoothouse, will be returning with brand new game modes. These have been confirmed to Cranked and Grind, two Infinity Ward designed game modes that have featured in their last few titles.

Shoot the Ship has been in demand ever since its removal. Infinity Ward have implemented similar playlists featuring small maps only – most recently, Cabin Fever – but the calls for Shoot the Ship have not yet gone away.

New Modern Warfare Obsidian Camo

On a similarly exciting note, Infinity Ward confirmed recent rumors that pointed to a master weapon camouflage beyond Damascus, the camo received for achieving Gold on every single weapon.

“There’s also something new to chase,” they said. “Can we interest you in Obsidian camo? Or maybe you want to mix and match blueprint weapon attachments to your heart’s content, even on another blueprint weapon…”

They did not confirm how it will be earned, but Joe Cecot, one of Infinity Ward’s most senior MP developers, previously said that a lot of time and effort will need to be invested.

Players do not need Damascus camo unlocked in order to try and reach the Obsidian camouflage, meaning the new challenge is open to all Modern Warfare players.

With just over a month left of the third season, players can still look forward to Season Four, set to start in early June.

Modern Warfare streamer goes on sniping killstreak with piano as controller

DeanoBeano, who went viral on Twitch a couple months back for using a drum kit to snipe in Modern Warfare, is back and this time he brought along with him a piano to get his kills.

Back in August 2020, Twitch streamer DeanoBeano made headlines when he was able to get a sniping kill in Modern Warfare using a drum kit. While it was only a single kill, to say that it was impressive would be an understatement considering how much precision it took.

A couple weeks later he was back at it again, this time going on a five killstreak on Vacant, even getting a split quad-feed and a collateral kill in the process. Now, DeanoBeano has once again done what some might considered the impossible and gone on another killstreak using an instrument but this time it wasn’t a drum kit.

Twitch streamer DeanoBeano played Modern Warfare for over five hours using a piano.

During a recent Twitch stream, DeanoBeano used a piano keyboard to get a four killstreak on Atlas Superstore, once again impressing the CoD community.

In the clip, which currently has over 16,000 upvotes on Reddit, Deano takes out three enemies in quick succession near the side of the map using the AX-50 sniper rifle, before running and taking out one more person with the 725 shotgun.

While that wouldn’t be impressive in the slightest with a normal controller, the fact that he was using a piano makes it an amazing feat to be sure.

As one can see in the clip itself, movement and aiming with the piano is a bit similar to the drums in that one key press moves the character just a little bit in a certain direction. This means that Deano constantly taps on the keys in order to adjust where he’s looking.

While he’s drumming kills were impressive as they were, this piano streak is even more absurd. Considering you can hear the piano keys he’s hitting, it makes for a very comical clip.

Here’s hoping he makes more hilarious videos with other instruments.
