This Week in Call of Duty® - January 13

All the Intel on the Happenings in Call of Duty

by Stephanie Glover on January 13, 2020

The Lead: Modern Warfare®

This week help provide relief toward the fires in Australia by purchasing the ‘Outback Relief pack’, add another member into your Gunfight squad, play through two returning game modes, and rank up during the holiday weekend courtesy of Double XP and Double Weapon XP.

As part of our efforts to help provide relief toward the devastating bushfires in Australia, we’re donating 100% of Activision’s net proceeds from each purchase of the “Outback” pack, which we’ve re-named the Outback Relief pack, across all platforms through January 31. If you’ve already purchased the Outback pack, your purchase will count towards donation. Thank you.

This intense Duos game mode is adding in a little more life, one to be specific. Gunfight Trios will be live on January 14. Instead of one partner, you’ll have two when you enter these tight battlegrounds. Use the extra player to your advantage and give it everything you’ve got to best your opponents. Gunfight Trios will be its own playlist and will not replace standard 2v2 Gunfight. 

Two game modes return this week in their own playlist. Put some speed in between your kills in Cranked. After your first kills, players are tasked with getting a another or they will explode.  In Drop Zone, players can only earn Killstreaks (a Care Package) by securing and holding the objective. 

Rank up your level and your weapons this weekend as Infinity Ward activates Double XP and Double Weapon XP on January 17 at 10 AM PT until January 21 at 10 AM PT. Enjoy the long weekend and see if you can finish off all the challenges, missions, and ribbons available in Season One. 

Call of Duty®: Mobile

Season Three of Call of Duty: Mobile is live on January 15. Two new modes will be dropping in at the start of Season Three, a new Multiplayer map, and a new Battle Pass Season will be live on January 19. Plus, there will be even more content coming throughout the Season!

The new Multiplayer map, Scrapyard from Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2 makes its debut in Call of Duty: Mobile. Fight through the debris of the environment and battle to clean up the enemy. Plus experience two new modes: a large player count battle reminiscent of Ground War in Battle Royale entitled: Warfare and an intense fast-paced Multiplayer mode: Rapid Fire.

Ranked mode is live now and will continue throughout Season Three. Test your skills and fight up the ranks in this new competitive focused mode. More content will be releasing for the upcoming Season so keep an eye on the Games Blog for all the details.
