Activision has revealed everything that’s coming to Modern Warfare and Warzone during the week of September 14. While it’s a slower week, there’s still a ton for players to get their hands on – here’s what you need to know.

It’s the start of a brand new week and that means we’re about to get another playlist update for both Modern Warfare and Warzone. While the current season is slowly but surely winding down, players can still look forward to some new content to sink their teeth into.

This week, fans can look forward to the return of some new modes in both standard Multiplayer and Warzone, as well as some brand new store bundles, including the return of Alex from the main story campaign.

Gunfight Face-Off brings normal multiplayer modes to smaller maps that were made for Gunfight.

Modern Warfare multiplayer

First and foremost, players will be able to jump into Gunfight Face-Off Moshpit. For those that don’t know, this playlist brings standard game modes to the smaller maps that were originally designed for Gunfight. There’s also going to be a mode added called Ground War Reinfected, which is essentially a large-scale version of the Infected game mode that players know and love.

In addition, players will be able to purchase a new Alex: Death Stalker bundle from the in-game store. This includes an exclusive skin, two weapon blueprints, a watch, a weapon charm and more for the main Operator from Season 3. He’ll cost 1,800 COD points, which roughly translates to about $20.

Also in the store is the Tracer Pack Anime Super bundle. This includes five exclusive weapon blueprints that fire pink tracer rounds, as well as a special weapon charm. The pack will cost 1,900 COD points.

Warzone

On the battle royale side of things, Infinity War are introducing a new mode called Buy Back Quads, in which redeploys will be granted based on the amount of cash you have.

If you’re running low, you’re out for good, but if you still have some leftover, you’ll be able to redeploy no problem, but it’ll cost you.

WARZONE PLAYLISTS

  • Buy Back Quads
  • Battle Royale Solos
  • Battle Royale Duos
  • Battle Royale Trios
  • Battle Royale Quads
  • Blood Money Trios

Although Activision and Infinity Ward have not announced when this new content will be going live, Call of Duty playlist updates generally get released on Tuesdays, so expect these modes to be available on September 15, sometime around 1 – 2 PM ET.

All in all, it’s a pretty slow week for the game, but that’s too be expected. With the Season 5 set to end in two weeks’ time, there won’t be much else for fans to look forward to until S6. At most, players can expect a double XP weekend just prior to the season’s end, but not much more than that.

Returning for his final event of the Call of Duty League offseason, Team Summertime’s Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards is hosting an enormous Black Ops 2 Invitational featuring former champions and popular content creators.

Throwback tournaments have been all the rage throughout the 2020 offseason and no one has been leading the charge quite like Hitch. Outside of hosting Warzone comps, his unique tournaments have spanned from Modern Warfare 2 to Black Ops 4. This time, his sights are set on 2012’s Black Ops 2.

Despite hackers ruining an early test for this particular event, the kinks have all seemingly been worked out. From former championship-winning teams to some of the biggest content creators, Hitch’s final event is set to be the biggest yet.

From how you can tune in, to every player joining the all-star Call of Duty event, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything there is to know about the Black Ops 2 Invitational.

How to watch the Black Ops 2 Invitational

The final event of the offseason is set to kick off on Wednesday, October 28. Opening matchups will be going live at 3PM EST (12PM PT) and the broadcast will likely run for most of the day.

As per usual, it’s all expected to be featured on Hitch’s own Twitch stream which we’ve embedded below. A majority of the players and creators will likely be sharing their own perspectives throughout the event as well.

Teams competing in the Black Ops 2 Invitational

Some squads feature some of the most successful Call of Duty veterans while others consist of popular streamers. Regardless, every team is stacked with FPS talent so expect some close matchups.

Standing out among the eight rosters is a true throwback. The 2014 world championship team of Crimsix, Karma, TeePee, and ACHES, will be reuniting. Formerly representing Complexity and then Evil Geniuses, these four players haven’t been on the same team since 2014.
