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?

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.

While no specific start time has been made public just yet, we know when the next big Warzone event will be kicking off. Expect to see your favorite personalities competing on Wednesday, October 21.

Given the unique format with this event, there’s a good chance it runs for quite a while. So expect a good few hours of action once it gets going. We’ve embedded the BoomTV stream below so you can catch the event as it goes live.

Rather than having players form their own teams for this event, things will be a little different. 16 “cracked” players will each be picked by 16 content creators to form every duo for the tournament.

This means that almost every duo could be playing together for the very first time as streamers choose their partners from the list of professionals. Once all duos are together, they’ll be paired up to square off in typical Quads action.

The exact point system is yet to be revealed, though the event will likely follow a familiar structure; eliminations will rack up points as will overall wins. The duo with more points at the end of each round will move on in the tournament bracket.
