As the success of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone continues, so too does the support from both Activision and Infinity Ward. The newest patch, 1.21, adds a new list of content and changes to the first-person shooter and the battle royale. The substantial update comes in at 30GB on PC, and it has a good reason for being so large.
For players of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, you can now do battle in two new locations. The Hardhat map from Modern Warfare 3 has been remade and added to its more modern counterpart. Hardhat will get its own 24/7 playlist too. “This map, first seen in Modern Warfare 3, is a haven for close quarters, fast-paced, and frenetic combat,” Infinity Ward shared. “But [it] also features some longer sightlines, so a variety of loadout types can find success.”
In addition, Gunfight will see the addition of a new map, Aisle 9. Infinity Ward has created a unique playlist, dubbed “Clean Up on Aisle 9,” which will host team deathmatches, Kill Confirmed, Grind, and Domination for the 3v3 mode.
The store in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare now features the Ghost Pack Contingency bundle. It includes two weapon blueprints for a Legendary assault rifle and a new skin that makes Ghost a much more familiar face. The bundle also includes 10 ghostly items, allowing for even more customization.
As for Call of Duty: Warzone, it will also gain a bunch of content. First up, Blood Money Quads are back in Verdansk. Pull together a team of four, collect Cash, complete Contracts, and eliminate everyone on your way to the top.
The Gulag will change things up as well. Two new weapons, the SMG and assault rifle, will now be in the Gulag. Additionally, a new item, the Armor Box, can now be used by teams in Call of Duty: Warzone. This will allow an entire team to replenish their armor. You can find the Armor Box on the ground, in Supply Boxes, or at a Buy Station.
For those looking for a pure experience, the new Classic Battle Royale limited-time mode will be your calling. Featuring no Buy Stations, Contracts, or Gulag, this is the purest form of the battle royale. Once you are dead, you are out.
Like all patches, patch 1.21 also brings with it a bunch of bug fixes and balancing tweaks. The patch is already live, so drop in and enjoy the new maps and updates.
