Sledgehammer announced that a new update will be coming in Call of Duty: WWII which will potentially bring a new Divison to the game 

Every Friday, Sledgehammer releases a ‘Community Update’ to discuss various happenings in Call of Duty: WWII, including future additions, Nazi Zombies, Community Challenges, and much more going on across the game.

Since its release in November of 2017, the developer has maintained a solid line of contact with fans and players via numerous avenues in order to keep the title fresh and provide the best in-game experience possible.

In their June 22nd installment of the Weekly Community Update, Sledgehammer announced that a new update will be going live ‘next week,’ although, not much information was revealed.

Game Update Next Week. We’ve got a game update going live next week, so get ready! Keep an eye out for notes on Reddit.”

However, the developer teased a look at what will be included next week with the tagline ‘Call in the Cavalry,’ with an image of a soldier holding what appears to be a Riot Shield, along with a seemingly-new ‘Division’ patch on their uniform.

Warzone dev reveals fix for missing Trick or Treat rewards bug

One of Warzone’s lead developers has responded to the frustrating Trick or Treat rewards bug during the Haunting of Verdansk event, with players not getting the Pumpkin Punisher Grau blueprint after completing all the challenges.

The Haunting of Verdansk is the special Halloween event in Warzone, with lots of new content for players to sink their teeth into.

This includes new Operator packs, including skins from horror films Saw and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, as well as the new Zombie Royale game mode and, of course, the Trick or Treat Rewards.

By searching chests in 16 different locations, players can earn all manner of items from calling cards and emblems to the awesome Cleaver melee blueprint. As a result of unlocking all 16, you’re supposed to get the Grau blueprint weapon, Pumpkin Punisher — but for some people, this isn’t happening.

The Pumpkin Punisher gives a spooky spin on a previous Warzone favorite weapon, the Grau 5.56.

A number of players have reported that even after completing all 16 Trick or Treat challenges and unlocking all the rewards, the Pumpkin Punisher remains locked and isn’t added to their Armory.

One player reported the issue to Joe Cecot, the Co-Design Director of Multiplayer at developer Infinity Ward, and he suggested that the likely issue is the UI thinks players have everything, but they’re actually missing one of the rewards.

To fix this, Cecot offered a workaround, though it might not be particularly fun: he advises players to hit all the locations again and the gun will likely be unlocked, to make sure the game properly registers the completion of every single challenge. He also says that it’s “most likely the location that is still not registered will give candy out of the box.”

Of course, this will be slightly frustrating for players who have not yet unlocked the Pumpkin Punisher, despite having completed all of the relevant tasks.

Cecot did add that in the long run, they’ll “most likely fix people in this state,” though it’s unclear when that could happen, or even if at all.
