Both Call of Duty Modern Warfare and the battle royale mode Warzone have taken the world by storm. This week (or more specifically later today) brings us another Modern Warfare update packed with new content. This includes new Operator packs in the store, a new LMG, and a whole lot more.

Bring the MK9 Bruen LMG to the fight with this Modern Warfare update.
One major addition through this Modern Warfare update is the addition of a new LMG; the MK9 Bruen. This LMG is known for its high accuracy and reliable damage output. It can be unlocked in one of two ways. Firstly, it comes as a part of the Encryption bundle which will be available in the store. Secondly, there will be a Weapon Challenge that players can complete to unlock it.
Make it personal with Gunsmith Customs!
With this new feature, players can mix-and-match their gun blueprints to create a brand-new custom weapon to use in Multiplayer, Co-Op, and Warzone. Although this only works with multiple blueprints for the same weapon, it’s still pretty awesome. It will allow players to bring even more personality to their weapons, along with charms, camos, and stickers.
They’re out for your head in Warzone…
The update also brings a new contract to Warzone. Most Wanted will make whoever starts it a Bounty Target for everyone else in Verdansk. It’s a high-risk, high-reward contract. You may be the biggest target in the Warzone, but if you survive, you’ll get instant re-deployment for your squad. Undoubtedly, this will breed a whole new bunch of Warzone strategies that you’ll need to master if you want to win!
Remember, you’ll need to get the two separate downloads for the full Modern Warfare update!
If you own the full version of Modern Warfare, you’ll need to download a patch and then the Data Pack DLC. The patch should be automatically prompted once the update goes live. From there, if you try to access Multiplayer, Campaign, or Special Ops, you’ll be prompted to get the Data Pack DLC. While this is downloading, you’ll still be able to play Warzone, though. So it isn’t all bad. When this download is done, you’ll have to restart the game to gain access to all the modes again.
The update also adds the Obsidian weapon camo, a true sign of combat mastery. It will be a challenge to unlock, as the other high-tier camos are, but will undoubtedly be worth it!
Shoot the Ship is also coming back as a Multiplayer playlist between May 1 and May 4. It features Shoot House and Shipment with a variety of game modes. Alongside this, there will be a Double XP, Double Weapon XP, and a Double Battle Pass Tier progression rate for the weekend.
