This Week in Call of Duty® - July 20

All the intel on the happenings in Call of Duty

by Stephanie Glover on July 20, 2020

The Lead: Modern Warfare®

Experience a close-quarters favorite in the Shoot the Ship 24/7 playlist, grab your trio and check your aim in 3v3 Gunfight Snipers Only, then battle to survive in Reinfected Ground War. Get discounted tiers this week in the Store, alongside new featured bundles. 

Hop into 3v3 Gunfight Snipers Only to test your marksman skills. Talk it up with your teammates and best the arena to find your spot and pick off the enemy. Beware the glint. 

Ground War gets reinfected in this large-map version of the popular Multiplayer party mode. Fight to survive until the time expires to claim victory. Consider mid-range weaponry to pick off foes at a distance or a deadly close-quarters option for anyone who tries to sneak up on you.  

Get a new look for Charly with the ‘Earth Expeditionary Force’ bundle. Dressed for a tactical exploration of the beyond, don ‘The Outrider’ skin and move quickly with the Legendary Colonial Standard LMG. The bundle also contains a watch, weapon charm, calling card, and emblem. 

Get your game in gear with the ‘Racing Series: Mach 8’ bundle. This racer-inspired bundle features red tracer blueprints the Autoclave SMG and Winner’s Circle Handgun and two vehicle skins to help you keep track of your ride in Warzone. Plus, get the ‘Start Your Engines’ vehicle horn that blares a race countdown sound. 

Warzone gets a boost this weekend in the Duos Stimulus playlist. If you have enough Cash when you’re eliminated, you’ll automatically redeploy into the match. No need for the Gulag. Stimulus redeploys players fast, so expect more frenetic play. Other Warzone playlists include Battle Royale Solos, Trios, Duos, and Quads and Plunder Quads. 

Ready to Shoot the Ship? Close-quarters gunplay excels in both locales while marksman can find longer sightlines on Shoot House’s flanking routes. Take advantage of the more frequent engagements you’ll have on both maps to knock out some of this Season’s Officer Challenges and reap the XP rewards. Plus, search for successive kills in the Cranked playlist where you’ll have a short amount of time to get your next kill (or assist) or boom, you’ll explode.

Need some additional tiers? Purchase tiers for only 100 Call of Duty points (regular price: 150 Call of Duty points) to help you advance through the Battle Pass system. The Tier Sale begins on July 21 at 10 AM PT and ends on July 27 at 10AM PT. Also available during the Sale, players can purchase discounted tiers in Tier Bundles in the Store.
