'Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare' Getting Fan-Favourite Mode Today
Activision has announced that two new modes will be hitting Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare this week. As Infinity Ward's first season of content for the popular shooter rolls on, we can expect these new modes to hit the game today.
Fans will no doubt be pleased to learn that one of the modes is actually a returning fan-favourite. Infected has been a staple of Call of Duty for many years now, and is always a guaranteed good time. First introduced as an April Fool's joke in Modern Warfare 3, the mode sees players fight to survive against one randomly-selected player who's been "infected."
Uninfected players simply need to keep away from and/or kill the infected, while the infected player is tasked with spreading the infection and overwhelming the surviving players. It's great fun, and it'll be interesting to see if Modern Warfare brings any new twists to the popular mode.
The other new mode is a twist on Gunfight, the small-scale 2v2 mode that was introduced in this latest iteration of Call Of Duty. Gunfight O.S.P will play fairly similarly to the standard Gunfight mode, with the key difference being that players will have to scramble and scavenge weapons instead of being provided with a set loadout at the start of each round. Sounds intense.
In addition to the two new modes, a couple of new cosmetic bundles are also hitting the Modern Warfare store, which launched last week. The new bundles are the Cold Blood and Mother Russia, which Activision described nicely in a blog post.
"The 'Cold Blood' bundle is fit for a cold and hardened Operator," Activision wrote. "Pick it up to look fierce in the 'Winter Warrior' skin for Golem take out the competition with the 'White Out' handgun weapon blueprint, or take some time with the 'Precious Commodity' watch, and more. Get this collection of chill items to look the part of a stone-cold killer."
"Say 'Dasvidaniya' to your foes and channel the menacing force of the Red State with the 'Mother Russia' Featured Bundle," Activision said of the second offering.
"The bundle includes the 'Commuter' Operator skin for Yegor to blend in with the locals, the 'Old Country' LMG weapon blueprint for high damage eliminations, the "Brass Tactics" Finishing Move to pummel your enemies, and more. Get the 'Mother Russia' bundle for themed good from the Motherland."
One thing to be aware of is that new modes won't be sticking around forever. Infected and Gunfight O.S.P will both be leaving the game just over one week from now, on December 18th. Better get in quick and make the most of them while you can, then.
