Infinity Ward has released a new playlist update for Warzone and Modern Warfare, which included some desired changes to the floor loot pool in the popular battle royale.

There are plenty of weapons for Warzone players to choose from, with different ‘floor loot’ guns scattered across Verdansk and loadout drops that are available on demand, which can help give the best chance at securing a victory.

Despite the large variety of weapons, the M4A1 assault rifle is one that often stands out and is considered one of the best guns in the game, next to the Grau, for picking opponents off at medium to long-range.

The ‘floor loot’ version of the M4A1 has received some major nerfs in Warzone.

Due to the base strength of the M4, which can be found in the floor loot pool of weapons, Infinity Ward recently made the rifle burst fire only, instead of its previous automatic fire rate.

The nerf to the weapon resulted in some backlash from Warzone players, however, it now seems as if the Modern Warfare developers have gone a step further in their latest playlist update.

In the June 24 update, Infinity Ward revealed that the uncommon and rare burst version of the M4 assault rifle had been removed completely from Warzone’s floor loot.

Despite the removal of the uncommon and rare rifles, the burst M4A1 is still available in Warzone as a common item, although it is less effective than the other versions.

With the Grau expected to receive some heavy nerfs in one of Warzone’s future updates, it is likely that there will be a new weapon meta that players will need to adjust to.

Infinity Ward also revealed another change, during the June 24 update, for the newly added ‘All or Nothing’ multiplayer playlist, with players now being allowed to queue up together on the party mode.

This playlist update comes only a day after a significant patch on June 23, which introduced new game modes, operator bundles, and much more. You can find the full patch notes for Modern Warfare’s June 23 update here.

Black Ops Cold War leak reveals Warzone cosmetics for Nuke event

New Black Ops Cold War leaks have pointed towards Warzone rewards for the impending nuke event that looks likely to bring a new map to Call of Duty’s battle royale mode. 

When the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare year was coming to a close, many wondered what would happen to Warzone. Would it make the move over to Black Ops Cold War or remain a separate entity?

Well, in that time, there’s been plenty of speculation about a new map and a move to the Cold War engine – especially as the Nuke, which appeared in Verdansk during the reveal event for the new game, still hasn’t been launched. 

However, it looks like the weapon of mass destruction could soon be set to lift off and kickstart Warzone’s integration with Cold War after some new cosmetics surfaced.

Warzone hasnt made the move to Cold War just yet, but it appears as if its coming soon.

Call of Duty leaker WarzoneNewz posted an image of an emblem where a Nuke can be seen blasting off around the Soviet flag – making it look like a Sickle. 

Additionally, there is a calling card for Alcatraz, or at least a map based on Alcatraz anyway – with Russian propaganda billboards being used on the main building in the centre of the image. 

The long-standing theory, since the Nuke arrived on Verdansk, has been that it will blast off and destroy Verdansk, giving way for some sort of rebirthed version of Alcatraz, given Treyarch used the small, prison map back in Blackout – the first attempt at Call of Duty Battle Royale. However, nothing has been confirmed. 

During the Cold War reveal event, where players were tasked with running around Verdansk and completing certain tasks, unique emblems and calling cards were released. So, it would make sense that they’d want to commemorate another live event with rewards for players who are there.

However, we’ll just have to wait and see what Treyarch decides to do, as there’s been no confirmation, just yet, about whether there will be another map or if it’s just going to be an extension of Verdansk.
