Is anyone really going to pay $24 for Nikto?

I am definitely not going to pay $24 for anything in the store. Instead of adding revenue generating content that could’ve and should’ve been in the game since day one the IW and Activision should address the many issues plauging the game since launch.

The Activision Blog has shared a look at what’s coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare this week.

Here’s the breakdown, including a Lunar New Year sale, Shipment 24/7, and Deathmatch Domination.

The 2v2 tension-filled battle is changing its tune when it comes to loadouts. Instead of being given a loadout at spawn, players can choose the armaments that they bring into this firefight. Consider how a stage might fare better with certain weapon types, then craft your best loadout and head into battle.

Deathmatch Domination combines TDM and Domination into an epic mashup that rewards players for getting kills and playing the objective. Capture the flags and take down enemies in your path and both will push your team to victory on the scoreboard. Focus on staying alive while holding objective areas to maximize your team’s chances of getting the win.

All Shipment. All the time. The chaotic, fun Shipment 24/7 playlist returns. Load into this tight battleground and rack up kills and XP while playing through a host of game modes.

Celebrate with the ‘Lunar New Year’ bundle. This bundle features items festively themed to mark the first new moon of the lunar calendar. Packed with charms, emblems, a calling card, two tier skips, and more get the ‘Lunar New Year’ bundle in the Featured section of the Modern Warfare Store.

Want to pick up some extra Tiers in Modern Warfare? A Tier sale will go live on January 31 at 10AM PT to February 3 at 10 AM PT. Get individual Tiers in Modern Warfare for 100CP and check the Just For You section of the Store to get Tier bundles on sale.

@codplayers

Test your skills this week in Modern Warfare with an updated 1v1 playlist and the return of Gunfight trios.

Lead your team to victory in Gunfight trios. Battle with a variety of random weapons on small, close quarters battlefield, including the newly added Bazaar. Master the symmetry of Gunfight maps by reading up on our Gunfight Tactical Map Intel articles and ready up to take on any opponent.

Get Mace a deadly new Operator for the Allegiance Forces. The Mace Operator Bundle includes the ‘Metal Phantom’ Operator skin, two weapon blueprints, the ‘Mace to the Face’ Finishing Move, two tier skips, and more. Mace is available now in the Modern Warfare Store.

Ready to square off against your friend or foe? Hop into the updated 1v1 Me Bro playlist where the radar is permanently on, so you can hunt down the enemy. Utilize the constant radar pings to plan your attack but be wary because your opponent knows your location as well. Get tips from our 1v1 article on the Games Blog to prepare yourself for the fight.

That 1v1, does anyone know if it allows you to work on operator tasks and daily/weekly XP stuff? I have one that tI am stuck on where I have to hack 15 items, and I tried a custom match with @MrWhiskerBizkit last night and none of the hacked items counted.
Yeah, looking for an easy way to get past a task that is way to hard for me and way to long to do.

Yeah, they won’t work in customs, but they will in 1v1. However, I think it would be hard to get them as there are only 2 of you and there aren’t going to be many chances to do it.

If the 1v1 is you and a friend, and you are in chat, it should be easy to get a few things done. Need to hack, have your buddy have stuff that can be hacked. Need to get X# of headshots, just meet up and stand and point.
Might need to do a 1v1 a few times to get all the tasks done, but if you are not looking to play serious that night, just want to chill, shoot the bull and get a few tasks done, this could be the way.
But I could be totally wrong in how I am seeing it too since I have not done a 1v1 before in CoD.

Yes, but if it’s like every other COD that’s been out, it will not be so easy to get in a 1v1 match with a friend. I haven’t tried it yet though.

Time to find out if it can be done.

In a new blog post, Activision has revealed what’s coming to Modern Warfare later this week. It appears Warzone is on the verge of getting four brand-new weapons, while a new operator and map are coming soon to Multiplayer.

It looks like all of this content will be available with tomorrow’s new Modern Warfare update. According to Activision, update 1.18 will launch at 11PM PT tomorrow.

Modern Warfare Talon Operator

Prior to the launch of Season 2, Infinity Ward revealed a new operator called Talon. The roadmap confirmed that this operator will release later on in the season.

Now, Activision has confirmed that Talon will be available within the Modern Warfare store later this week. You can unlock this operator by purchasing the Talon Operator Bundle. Not only will you grant access to Talon, but his “trusty dog Sasquatch will also join the fight.”

This will be the first time dogs will be available in Modern Warfare, although you can use Sasquatch as a finishing move.

Four New Warzone Weapons

In addition to Talon, later this week will also mark the arrival of four all-new weapons in Call of Duty Warzone. There’s no sign of what these weapons will be, but we should expect more information to emerge in the patch notes for tomorrow’s update.

As with the vast majority of post-launch content this year, you can expect all of these weapons to be available for free.

Khandor Hideout

Although most of the hype is focused around Warzone at this point in time, Activision also has a host of surprises in store for Multiplayer tomorrow. One of these is a brand-new map called Khandor Hideout, as previously teased towards the beginning of Season 2.

Khandor Hideout is a medium-sized map that takes place in Syrkistan. It supports 6v6 play and has a wide variety of combat ranges.

I was worried that they were going to be dropping season 3 soon; only a few levels away from getting season 2 wrapped up, not sure I am ready to plug into another 100 levels and a new season just yet.
