This Week in Call of Duty® - December 23

All the Intel on the Happenings in Call of Duty

by Stephanie Glover on December 23, 2019

The Lead: Modern Warfare®

Fresh off new maps and Special Ops experiences in the latest update to Season One, the Holidays from Modern Warfare continue with an epic new limited time Gunfight game mode – Snowfight and the debut of Drop Zone for standard Multiplayer. Both new modes will be available on December 24 at 10AM PT until December 31 at 10AM PT.

In celebration of the Holidays, global Double XP and Double Tier earn rate will be active on December 24 at 10 AM PT! Raise your rank and accelerate your tier progression during this event until December 27 at 10AM PT. Following this, there will be a tier sale for those looking to make even further progress on the Battle Pass. 

Available on the Holiday-themed map Winter Docks, grab a partner and enjoy a classic snowball fight in this new game mode, Snowfight. Players will have only snowballs instead of weapons to eliminate their opponents.

Drop Zone comes to Modern Warfare with its distinct objective play that rewards players even more than standard game modes for playing the objective. The only way to earn Killstreaks is by continually holding the drop zone to have a Care Package delivered to your location.

Alongside, the Nikto Operator Bundle which launched last week there’s another new Featured Bundle coming to the Store: the ‘Mad Chemist’. 

The ‘Mad Chemist’ ups Krueger’s already menacing look with a gas mask ready for an experiment gone wrong. The bundle includes the ‘Final Countdown’ watch, two tier skips, the ‘Moral Argument’ weapon blueprint, a Legendary handgun weapon blueprint the ‘Volatile’ and more. Go to the Store to see all the goods available this week. 

For those that haven’t picked up the Battle Pass or the Battle Pass Bundle take a look at your progression on the stream, particularly after the boost from the three days of Double Tier earn rate. You may have Call of Duty Points (CP) that have yet to be unlocked in the Battle Pass. Picking up the Battle Pass or Battle Pass Bundle will instantly unlock a host of items and Operator challenges along with the opportunity to earn 1300 CP should you complete the stream.
