‘Tis the Season is all about giving, and we have some seriously awesome gifts heading your way. We hope that you’ve been good this year, because you won’t want to miss out on these items. Here’s a look at just some of what we have in store for Call of Duty players this month:

TTS_Hailstorm.png

Epic Prototype Hailstorm – Thunder Pistol Bonus*

Call of Duty is honored to have some of the most loyal fans in gaming, and to show our gratitude we’re handing out a very cool weapon to players who have clocked time in both Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Call of Duty Infinite Warfare.

Starting today, all players who own Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and who also play Call of Duty: Black Ops III will receive an epic prototype Hailstorm – Thunder pistol. It’s just our way of saying thank you, and to reward you for your loyalty.

The Hailstorm – Thunder is extremely shiny (and deadly), and features a three-round burst along with two perks: Whirlwind, which is a fast cycling auto burst that increases recoil, and Focus to reduce idle sway while aiming down sights. So, jump in the game today and equip it in your loadout to show some pride.

Modern Warfare Remastered Maps and Modes

When Modern Warfare Remastered launched last month, it included ten remastered maps from the original game. On December 13, players who own Modern Warfare Remastered will receive the remaining six remastered maps: Bloc, Countdown, Pipeline, Showdown, Strike, and Wet Work, along with the Hardpoint and Gun Game modes being made available in Modern Warfare Remastered for the first time.

Plus, we’re throwing in an additional chilly bonus as all Modern Warfare Remastered players will also get the remastered Winter Crash map in all its glory! We’ll be running a 24/7 Winter Crash playlist beginning on December 20 that will last through the holidays, and we’ll have more details soon.

Genesis Holiday Map

The holiday map makeover fever is spreading to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare as well! Later this month, players will find a Genesis Holiday map waiting for them as the Headquarters for the Division of Mechanical Evolution gets a festive new look. Plus there will be a 24/7 Genesis Holiday playlist, ready to spread cheer, goodwill, and high KDRs.

12 Days of Winter

This is very awesome! Thank you, activision/Call of Duty.  I, as well as some others, would love to see shipment in Hardcore Headquarters, because it was in the original game and it is in core HQ.  Y'all are doing a great job with this and I am pumped to play these other maps on MWR!

Looking good...you know what else would look good? Leaderboards and a combat record. let's make it happen please.

I just bought the thunder with salvage on Tuesday.

Or you could keep the bs and fix the latency, lag comp, and hit detection. And get closer to having a fictional game for the first time since advanced warfare. 

 

That'd be nice

It says i have the hailstorm thunder but won't let me use it is this happening to anyone else 

Awesome!!!!

Hey this is great to see a loyalty program but I have already spent 4000 salvage on this weapon like yesterday so will my salvage be refunded?

You know what would really out the icing on the cake! Adding an XP bar to zombies in game so you know how much XP you need to level up. So many players are asking for this!

Jskellenger

That's funny...... a holiday themed Genesis map. I doubt the maps will be added back into the game before then. 

How do I get this? Do I need to play BO3 and IW during the offer? 

Just when everyone thought this franchise was on life support, you all come up with a great game in Infinite Warfare and strike the nostalgic nerve with a remastered Modern Warfare.  All these Holiday-themed bonuses are awesome!  THANK YOU! In the spirit of giving, why not release some of the other MW2, MW3, BO and BO2 maps as bonus maps in remastered MW.  You have so many older MW games with great maps that have gone into oblivion. A voting mech for all of the fans to bring them back, remastered or not, would be IDEAL.  So many new players to this franchise never played those and for those of us that have, it would be a great welcomed trip down memory lane.  One man army wouldn't suck either.  Jus sayn

 

Stay awesome and keep (over)delivering.  We'll stay frosty.

I think this is great well done on the giveaways but people are making good points being that the game does need certain things that should have been done already before the game was even released, such as leader boards and combat records.

 

also I myself bought into the COD franchise to play Capture the flag and ever since that glitch was discovered you took Cap the flag out of the playlist and have not yet returned it to the playlist, so when will this game become available to play again? Cap the flag is a unique game that a majority of players enjoy and a lot of people only like to play cap the flag such as myself and now I have to resort to other games but it's no where close to as fun as Cap the flag so please get this game back up on the playlist and also please add it to the hardcore playlist and it would be nice to see other game become available in the hardcore set of games.

 

thank you again for the holidays gifts but please get us Capture the flag back ASAP!

This is all awesome! I love it and every game you make is amazing! But now all I have got to say is #BlackOps2Remastered

Fantastic idea 8 look forward to it.  

I'm very impressed. It's great to see a company giving back to their players, considering what we are paying for the games today. A big thanks both for another hit and the gifting to Activision, Infinity Ward and Raven Software. Happy Holidays indeed!

so you mean i got to spend 3 hours re downloading black ops 3 to get map pack for mwr , what a joke ffs

SpiderNoir14
Level 1

Cool! This is really sweet. But I'm wondering- will the Variety Map Pack ever be added? Either free or as DLC? If it's DLC it should be included in Season Pass.

Fix the errors, the hit detection and lag fluctuations from lobby to lobby and we will be really having a good old time! The game is fun when it functions

This is great but my problem is still not fixed , I have bought the season pass so everyday when I go on infinite warfare should get 40 salvage and a create to open.  And your saying you will be giving away stuff . I have reported my problem with the support team but it's been two weeks Friday and I am losing out 

merry Christmas
