The Lead: Modern Warfare

Need to finish up the Battle Pass? This upcoming weekend Double XP, Double Weapon XP, and Double Battle Pass tier progression will be activated for all Modern Warfare players including Warzone. Enjoy the fun of leveling up and snapping up those last tiers while experiencing some fan-favorite maps in their own 24/7 playlists, some objective playlists, and play Gun Game on new arenas.  Plus, show your support for veterans with a new in-game Store bundle, the Call of Duty Endowment Fearless Pack, and an exclusive t-shirt.

In honor of National Military Appreciation Month, the Call of Duty Endowment is releasing two limited items, one for your Operator in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare including in Warzone, and another you can wear in real life. The Fearless Pack includes a total of 10 in-game digital items: an Operator skin, weapon blueprint, two calling cards, two emblems, charm, watch, spray, and camo. Purchase the Fearless Pack in-game to support the Endowment’s work of placing veterans in high quality jobs, all net proceeds from the pack go to the Endowment. Get full details on the Fearless pack here.

Available now is the #CODEFearless T-Shirt, a special edition shirt produced exclusively in collaboration with Graph. Inspired by the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare universe, this black, short sleeve tee features the Endowment’s logo and topographic elements from the iconic Warzone map. The shirt is a regular fit, comfortable, and lightweight tee that comes in a range of sizes. Get your shirt here while supplies last, 100% of the Activision net receipts from this t-shirt will go to the Endowment.

Get a kill with each weapon to succeed in Gun Game on Gunfight maps. This smaller player count battle might make finding kills easier, but it might also make you more of a target. Keep moving to and stay quick on your ADS to take down foes. Don’t get melee’d or you’ll get knocked back a weapon. 

Give Raines the attire of an honest day’s work with the ‘Lumbertactical’ bundle. Grab the ‘Bunyan’ skin alongside a Legendary LMG blueprint and a Legendary shotgun blueprint, then take a swing at your enemies with the Hatchet melee weapon. Find the ‘Lumbertactical’ in Store and go chop down your opponents. 

Target your foes on the battlefield with blueprints from the ‘Tracer Pack: Purple’ bundle. As the name suggests, both blueprints feature purple tracer fire. The Prototype: Omega focuses on accuracy in close range combat while the ‘Prototype: Alpha’ offers accuracy at range. Grab both Legendary blueprints alongside a charm, sticker, vehicle skin, emblem, and calling card in the ‘Tracer Pack: Purple’ bundle. 

Two modes, two playlists: Get nonstop action with Deathmatch Domination and  Drop Zone each in their own unique playlist. Earn points for holding objectives and take down foes in the moshpit hybrid – Deathmatch Domination. Then, jump over to Drop Zone to earn Scorestreaks by locking down the objective. 

Shoot House and Shipment are both getting their own 24/7 playlist! Pick your favorite or jump into both to get a mix of modes on these two maps.
