Infinity Ward has revealed more new Season 1 content that will be coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare via the January 14 update, including a 3v3 Gunfight mode, the return of two multiplayer modes and another 2XP promo.

Season 1 continues to roll on in Modern Warfare and with it so does the content, as Infinity Ward and Activision have announced what’s coming next in their 2019 Call of Duty installment.

On January 13, Activision released the latest edition of their ‘This Week in Call of Duty’ blog post, in which they discussed what fans should expect in the next day’s update, along with some other CoD related news.

The update will be going live on Tuesday, January 14, likely around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET and will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC right away.

3v3 Gunfight

Infinity WardGunfight Trios will turn the fan-favorite mode into a 3v3 affair.

Gunfight Trios will make its in-game debut on January 14, turning the popular multiplayer mode into a 3v3 affair.

This will be the fourth version of Gunfight – the classic 2v2 that’s been in the game since day one, the recently-added 1v1, and O.S.P., which players didn’t enjoy too much.

Although it hasn’t been yet confirmed, it’s likely that this new 3v3 variant will replace the 1v1 mode since IW wouldn’t want to spread the Gunfight player-base too thin by having three versions all available at the same time.

Return of two MP modes – Cranked & Drop Zone

Cranked and Drop Zone were two new modes introduced in the weeks following the launch of Season 1 in Modern Warfare. Now, both will be returned as available playlists in multiplayer via the upcoming update.

Cranked is similar to Team Deathmatch but with a twist – after getting their first kill, players need to find and get more kills within a short period of time or else they’ll explode.

Infinity WardIn Cranked, players must follow their initial kill with another quick elimination or else they will explode.

Drop Zone, on the other hand, is objective-based and works similarly to Hardpoint in that teams earn points by controlling specially marked zones on the map.

The big twist, however, is that Killstreaks can only be earned by controlling the drop zones for long enough to gain access to the Care Packages that fall into them from the sky, each containing either a lethal or support streak.

More XP boost promos

While not directly tied to this update, there will be another XP promo coming at the end of the week to take advantage of players being home from school and work on January 20 due to it being Martin Luther King Jr Day.

Players will receive Double XP and Double Weapon XP from January 17-21, with the boost kicking in at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET on Friday.

Rapper turned popular Twitch streamer Soulja Boy went on a hilarious rant-like victory speech after he dominated the opposition in a match of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

After loading into the Crossroads map for a little free for all action, the rapper took no prisoners, destroying the other members of the lobby with ease.

By the time Soulja landed the final kill bringing his score to 30, the player back in second place had a mere 22 making the streamer’s performance even crazier.

Soulja himself was over the moon with his play and boasted his insane skills in an epic speech where he shouted at the top of his lungs.

Soulja Boy pops off in Cold War
Soulja Boy was hyped after winning the round.

“Let’s f**king go! I’m in beast mode! I’m at f**king beast mode!” he screamed in glory. “Stop playin’ with me! That’s what I do! When I get in that mode!”

As the 30-year-old continued his hyped speech, the “Best Play” was being shown in the background documenting the streamer’s series of frags.

Throughout the clip, Soulja manages to pick up three kills in quick succession padding his lead. Amusingly, some in his chat thought that the game was too dominant and he was playing against AI.

“Of course when a [person] winning they’re going to say it’s bots!” he smirked. “I’m so motherf***ing raw I make these [people] look like bots! Look up them Gamer Tags and DM then and ask them if they’re bots!”

Needless to say, Soulja Boy’s confidence was really something else and being able to back up the trash talk with big wins just makes it so much sweeter.

Of course, if you want, you can use Soulja’s loadout in your own games and see if it makes you pop off as hard as him. For his primary weapon, he opts for the MP5 with the Duckbill Choke, Millstop Reflex, +22 extended, 6RND Tube and Steady Aim Laser.

BOCW campaign bots
Soulja Boy was making opponents look like bots from the campaign.

His secondary is the Hauer 77. For equipment, he opts for stuns, semtex, and proximity mine. Finally, for perks and Wildcard he uses Paranoia, Gearhead and Ghost equipped with Danger Close.

Give it a shot and see if you can get on Soulja Boy’s level.
