DLC 3 is now available on all platforms and players who missed out on the Resistance collection will get another chance at the exclusive items this weekend.

Taking place every Friday, CoD: WWII developer Sledgehammer Games releases a ‘Community Update’ which details upcoming events and improvements in the game.


Also premiering on July 27 is a ‘Throwback’ playlist that will have scorestreak kills count towards your next streak. Slegdgehammer also claims the fan-favorite Leprechaun mode may return soon.

The highlights of the Community Update are available below.


SHG Weekly Community Update – Friday, July 27

Call of Duty®: WWII DLC Pack 3: United Front. This is now live on all platforms! Jump in and have fun exploring all the new Multiplayer maps and War Mode mission, as well as Nazi Zombies: The Tortured Path. Tune in to our livestream at 11AM PDT today for some dev insights on the new maps.

Weekend Warfare Playlist and Resistance Collections.
Back for a weekend only, the Resistance Collections are once again at your fingertips. We’ve also got 2XP on the Throwback Playlist, and we’ve made a few changes this time to up the chaos ante, so to speak. Mainly:

– All players have the Blitzkrieg Basic Training by default on top of the Basic Training they chose themselves (so Killstreaks, instead of Scorestreaks)
– Kills with Streaks count towards your next Killstreak (this is a throwback to chaining streaks together, and should make getting a Ball Turret Gunner much easier, for example)

Get in on it all before 10AM PDT on Monday, July 30!


Weekly Weapon Contract. This week, it’s for the Lever Action sniper rifle. You know the drill: Head to the Quartermaster to pick it up before 10AM PDT on Tuesday, July 31.

Leprechaun Mode. We’ve seen a lot of feedback about this mode and how much you enjoyed it. All we can say is, it might reemerge soon…

AA Gun Event in Headquarters. Keep an eye out for this, because it’s back!


Master Prestige Rewards. Remember, these are coming in our next big title update, which we are working to close as soon as we can. Last week, we showed you a taste of what level 1000 players can expect. However, we also made it clear that there will be rewards for various Master Prestige levels, so we wanted to give you additional sneak peeks of two more sets of Master Prestige rewards. Tune in to our livestream at 11AM PDT to see them!

Next Midweek Mobilize. From 10AM PDT next Wednesday, August 1 until 10AM PDT next Thursday, August 2, get 2XP when you party up on any mode.


Next Weekend Warfare. From 10AM PDT next Friday, August 3 until 10AM PDT on Monday, August 6, get 2XP on any mode.

Warzone player discovers perfect way to counter Airport tower campers

A Warzone player has found the perfect way to counter campers in the Verdansk Airport tower, and it might be the best way to bait those annoying players out and get across the runway.

If you’ve played Warzone even once, you’ll know exactly which tower we mean: the one north of Airport that has only one way up, from which players can easily camp, scout out enemies and lay fire upon those trying to rotate to zone.


Even with the inclusion of external ziplines to many tall buildings in Verdansk, the tower still doesn’t have one, meaning that once players are up there, it’s incredibly difficult to get them down.

Typically, you’ll struggle in a straight gunfight against these players — so what you need to do is bait them out, instead, and capitalize when they’re distracted.

Warzone airport tower helicopter
Tower campers are among some of the most annoying players in Warzone.

As showcased below by NadxCH, a helicopter could be your key to infiltrating the tower — though not how you might think.

While many people will have tried to attack head-on while in a helicopter, the plan instantly falls flat if the tower campers have a rocket launcher or explosives of some sort, that will see you and your team come crashing down instantly.

Instead, you need to assign a teammate to fly past in the helicopter after landing up top, and strike while the iron is hot. While the designated driver flies the heli in one direction, you’ll need to jump off the top and plan your parachute perfectly to land in the control room while the opponents have their back turned and are distracted.


Obviously, this will often be easier said than done. Jumping off the top of the tower and timing everything right to land in the control room is a skill you’ll have to practice over and over again to get right, so you’ll have to be confident you can pull it off first.

Secondly, you’ll have to rely on the enemy team being distracted by the helicopter. They likely will be, and will want to take it down while it’s so close, which is why it’s the perfect opportunity to strike.

Otherwise, you might find yourself trapped while trying to traverse the map — and there are few worse types of players to die to than those in Airport tower.
