Games of Summer has arrived. Fight for country, glory, and Legendary weapon blueprints in this free for everyone summer event available until September 7. Get extensive details on Trials, tips for mastering them, and more on the Games Blog. 

Search and Rescue is an objective mode that borrows elements from Kill Confirmed and inserts them into Search and Destroy. While you should always “play your life”, now fallen players drop dog tags. Collect your teammates tags to revive them, but if the enemy picks them up your squadmates will be permanently eliminated from the match. Watch your six in this S&D hybrid mode, and try to confirm your kills, so the enemy doesn’t come back and take revenge. 

Master the pitch with ‘The Game Winner’ bundle for Gaz. The bundle includes a jersey-like Operator skin, a Legendary assault rifle, and the ‘Footy’ weapon charm. Look the part for any match with ‘The Game Winner’ bundle. 

Get a new look for Mara with the ‘Mara: Kawaii Cat’ bundle. This 10-item bundle includes colorful vehicle skins, the Aomi melee swords, and a Legendary blueprint – the Slaying Moon. Get Mara’s ‘Notice Meow’ skin in this fun Operator bundle in Store this week. 

Ground War Reinforce is live this week and work to capture flags to gain position and bring your teammates back into the battle. Similar to Domination, there will only be three flags positioned in the center for a tighter more intense battle. Cap all three to automatically claim the round for your team. 

Long live the King… until now. Eliminate top players or “kings” in the latest Warzone limited mode, Kingslayer. Also available, survive the circle and the Gulag in Battle Royale Solos, Duos, Trios, and Quads or get more bucks with your bang in Blood Money Quads. 

End Games of Summer with a bang courtesy of a one-day triple feed. Get Double XP, Double Weapon XP, and Double Battle Pass Tier Progression all day long on September 7. It’s the perfect time to rake in some XP from Trials, complete ribbons or missions, and level up Modern Warfare’s newest weapon the FiNN LMG.
