Double XP

Starting on April 17 at 10AM PDT until April 20 at 10AM PDT, jump in a match of Multiplayer, Special Ops, or Warzone and boost your rank to expand your loadout options.

Use this time to finish off challenges, missions, ribbons, and test your skills in Trials to get the most XP and Weapon XP for your efforts.



Scopes And Scatter Guns Trios

A new mode is available for Warzone that limits the weapons to snipers and shotguns and changes up the strategies required to win.

This mode is available for trios only.



This Modern Warfare 3 classic makes a triumphant return to Call of Duty.

Dropzone is a team objective mode where players battle to hold objectives to win, earning killstreaks by securing the objective and points by being inside the zone.

Very similar to Hardpoint, the first team to reach the required point total or hold the most points when the time expires wins.

Killstreaks are only obtained by care packages that continually drop while the zone is held.


Twin Dragons Bundle

A pair of golden Legendary weapons will be arriving in a new bundle for 1300 COD Points designed to "give you double the firepower to eliminate your foes".

It also comes with two Epic themed customisation items.
