New Gunfight and multiplayer modes – Snowfight & Drop Zone

The mode, called Snowfight, replaces weapons with snowballs, which players have to throw at their opponents to eliminate them.

The other new mode, Drop Zone, will be a regular multiplayer playlist. In Drop Zone, players have to capture objectives on the map, which is the only way to earn Killstreaks.

Players who continually hold the drop zone will get a Care Package delivered to their location containing a specific Killstreak.
