Developers Infinity Ward have revealed some of the new content coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone, including four weapons, a new multiplayer map, and more.

With Warzone still being all the hype in the online gaming world, everyone's attention is on Infinity Ward to see what they have in store as the game enters its third week of existence.

The developers have announced another weekly update for March 24, one that will introduce new content to both the battle royale and regular multiplayer in Modern Warfare.

What's coming to Warzone?

For Warzone, four weapons will be added to the loot pool: the 725, MK2 Carbine, .50 GS, and EBR-14. These will come as both Common and Uncommon rarities, with each having "distinct strengths in its class."

Of course, weapons found from default loot aren't as important in this game as in other BRs, mainly because most players will gather enough Cash to buy a Loadout Drop as soon as possible so they can use their own custom classes.

Nothing else has been confirmed other than these guns, but fans should expect the upcoming patch to also include a slew of fixes, several of which have already been confirmed by Infinity Ward.

What's coming to Modern Warfare multiplayer?

As for Modern Warfare multiplayer, a new 6v6 map called Khandor Hideout is being introduced. Activision described it as a "medium-sized map in Urzikistan that supports 6v6 play and has long sightlines and interior spaces to complement diverse combat ranges."

This will be the third new map added as part of Season 2, after Rust and Atlas Superstore, so it's likely to be the last one until S3 kicks off in early April.

Last but not least, a brand new Operator called Talon will be joining the Coalition. Talon will be available via a bundle that includes two Legendary weapon blueprints and a Finishing Move that involves his "fierce, combat-ready" dog named Sasquatch.

When does this update go live?

This update will launch on Tuesday, March 24, but at the unusual time of 11 PM PT / 2 AM ET / 6 AM GMT (on March 25).

Infinity Ward have traditionally released their patches earlier in the day, but with so many people at home playing nowadays, they're trying to figure out the best way to get these updates out without causing major issues to servers and connectivity.
