Ready for some weekend warfare? Starting at 10AM PT on April 3, free-to-play Warzone players can jump into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Multiplayer for free. That’s right: all Modern Warfare and free-to-play Warzone players can square up together in a varied and fast-paced Multiplayer Moshpit, all weekend long.
If you haven’t played Modern Warfare Multiplayer, now’s the chance to see what you’ve missed. Experience the world-class gameplay, deep weapon customization, and gritty, photorealistic environments that make Modern Warfare Multiplayer the ultimate online playground.
One Playlist. Nonstop Hits.
This weekend only, anyone who has free-to-play Warzone can navigate to the Lobby and join the Multiplayer action, FREE. In the Warzone Lobby, you’ll see the ‘Stocked Up, Locked Down’ 24/7 Playlist. Get ready for round-the-clock combat on two original Modern Warfare maps: Atlas Superstore and Shoot House.
In true Moshpit style, players will have the opportunity to play a variety of team-based, game modes, like Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint, and more. And, with such a varied mix of game modes, players will get the chance to explore all parts of each map as they interact in different mode environments.
Atlas Superstore (10v10)
Welcome to Atlas Superstore, where combat is always in stock. This empty big-box supercenter may be familiar to Warzone players, who may have already discovered Atlas Superstore by exploring Verdansk. In Warzone, it can be found just south of the Verdansk International Airport. However, in Multiplayer, this map is slightly different.
From our tactical map guide: ‘Once a major shopping center for the citizens of Verdansk, the Atlas Superstore has since become a battle zone and weapons storage facility for Zakhaev Arms. The Allegiance and Coalition engage in another head to head battle in this massive facility on Day 79 of the ongoing fight, with Allegiance forces entering in from the western Backlot and the Coalition stepping in from the eastern Loading Docks.’

Shoot House (6v6)
One of Modern Warfare’s ultimate crowd-pleasers, the ‘Shoot House’ map has been an instant classic since its debut. Every playstyle has a place here: from the stealthy soldier with Dead Silence and a Combat Knife, to the eagle-eyed sniper with the Focus perk and a Thermal Optic.
From our tactical map guide: ‘One of the smallest maps for 6v6 play, Shoot House represents a traditional three-lane, fast-paced design that encourages frenetic engagements and high-octane battles….Out in the desert of Urzikstan at a classified location, a military shoot house – or training course – was built for stationed soldiers to conduct intense exercises….The map is divided into thirds, with two yellow catwalks acting as the viewing platforms for higher ranking officers to see how their Operators run the course.’

Modern Warfare Multiplayer: General Tips
Totally new to Modern Warfare Multiplayer modes? First, learn about the core game modes in a Modern Warfare Moshpit before you hop into a Multiplayer match.
Team Deathmatch: Straightforward, but deadly. Teams of six go toe-to-toe to collect the most kills. The manner of death doesn’t matter, so shoot, launch, and toss grenades to your hearts’ content. The first team to reach 70 kills takes the victory!
Kill Confirmed: Team Deathmatch gets a high-stakes twist, where killed players drop dog tags. Collect teammates’ dog tags to deny your enemies’ kills and pick up your enemies’ dog tags to earn points for your team. The first team to earn 70 points (collect 70 dog tags), also collects the W.
Domination: Three flags are set on the map, each in a static location. Players compete to “capture” each flag for their team by occupying the flag zone for 10 seconds. Flags can be highly contested and captured often, especially on smaller maps. Always check your six.
Hardpoint: Like Domination, players must “capture” a location. However, instead of a flag, the objective is a rotating map zone, or ‘hardpoint,’ that moves to a different area every 45 seconds. Hold down the hardpoint and get a point for every second your team occupies it. If members of both teams are in the hardpoint, the zone becomes contested and no one scores. First team to 250 points wins.
Headquarters: Similar to Hardpoint, teams rush to “capture” a rotating objective – the headquarters. Capture and hold the headquarters to earn points for your team. The team the holds the HQ doesn’t respawn. The first team to 200 points wins.
PLUS: This weekend is the perfect opportunity to experiment with Killstreaks, perks, and Field Upgrades at a deeper level. Get to know these loadout components as you deploy them in Multiplayer, and you’ll soon handle them with ease in Warzone. Use this weekend to become a Cluster Strike master, an ‘Overkill’ perk powerhouse, or a badass boss with a ‘Deployable Barrier.’
