A new bundle is coming to Warzone in the Modern Warfare Season 4 Reloaded patch, featuring a Legendary blueprint, a heap of COD Points, a skin for Krueger and more.

Modern Warfare’s fourth season is in full swing, but the team behind its battle royale are going to give newer players a helping hand with a pack containing enough content to get them on their way.

The bundle will cost $4.99, or a “regional equivalent” as Activision says, and will give players a bit of flair to take with them in their firefights across Verdansk.

The Starter Pack has everything new Warzone players need to get into the battle royale.

The contents of the Warzone Starter Pack are as follows:

  • 500 COD Points
  • Legendary Shotgun Blueprint – Amalgam
  • Epic Krueger Skin – Alchemist
  • Epic Calling Card – Breathing Easy
  • Epic Emblem – Vulture Culture
  • 2x 1 Hour 2x XP Tokens

First, people who opt into the purchase will have their currency essentially traded into COD Points with 500 in-game currency boosting their digital wallets.

After that, there’s a ton of content to sift through starting with the highlight of the bundle, Legendary Shotgun Blueprint – Amalgam.

Warzone players are getting the blueprint for the Amalgam.

The weapon comes with five attachments that makes it ready for most types of combat, though you’ll still need to level it for more options to customize it.

For fans of the Allegiance Operator, there’s going to be an Epic Krueger skin called The Alchemist. Skins are one of the many ways to get the most out of Warzone’s customization, so it could be a welcomed addition for new players.

Along with the skin, the pack will give people an Epic Calling Card and Epic Emblem called Breathing Easy and Vulture Culture, respectively.

Finally and fittingly, the Starter Pack is giving new fans two tokens for one-hour double XP. This will let players boost their Battle Pass tier rate and weapon levels, simultaneously.

The new Warzone bundle will be a huge thrust for people still looking to get a jumpstart in their battle royale progression without breaking the bank.

As even more maps and modes were announced for Season 4 Reloaded, there should be plenty for fresh players to get into the mix of everything Modern Warfare has to offer.

Call of Duty 2021 leaks hint at new Modern Warfare follow up

Before Black Ops Cold War arrives, we may already have our first hint of next year’s Call of Duty setting as a prominent leaker has teased a new Modern Warfare sequel.

While the Call of Duty franchise has 17 mainline entries covering a wide array of timelines, two names stand out as the most iconic. Both the Black Ops series and the Modern Warfare series have seen the most iterations over the years. 

Treyarch has already released four titles in the Black Ops series with Cold War just weeks away. Meanwhile, Infinity Ward has four entries in the Modern Warfare series, the original trilogy along with 2019’s reboot. Now, it seems as though a fifth could also be on the way with Infinity Ward at the helm.

Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software will reportedly be taking a back seat. Instead of the typical three-year development cycle, Infinity Ward has just two-years to work with. We’re still 12 months off from 2021’s mystery release, but we may already have our first details on next year’s title. 

Modern Warfare 2019

Could Price’s story continue in 2021’s Call of Duty?

“It’s looking like CoD for 2021 is another Modern Warfare title of some kind,” prominent leaker Tom Henderson revealed. Not a whole lot is known beyond that key detail, though the setting for the next release appears to be locked in. 

“Understandably not a lot of information as of yet, but it’s a modern-day setting,” he confirmed. Given Modern Warfare’s hard reboot with 2019’s release, could a new sequel be the next step? This would essentially bypass the original Modern Warfare 2 from 2009 if Activision opts for another identical title.

To avoid even more confusion, there’s a good chance the name is a little different, similar to how Black Ops added Cold War to the title for 2020’s drop, despite it being a direct follow up to Black Ops 1. So expect to see Modern Warfare: ‘something something’ as the likely 2021 title.

This could see a direct continuation from where 2019’s game left off. John Price is looking to assemble a team of classic characters to put a stop to Russian terrorist Victor Zakhaev. If Warzone’s ongoing storyline doesn’t beat the single-player campaign to the punch, this could be our objective in 2021’s release.

While this aspect is purely speculation, the leaker also considered the original Modern Warfare 2 being bundled in. No different from how Infinity Warfare launched with Modern Warfare remastered in 2016.

We’re still months away from any official information on the 2021 title, so take this with a grain of salt for now. Black Ops Cold War is the focus for Activision. Anything regarding next year’s game will be kept under wraps for quite some time yet.
