You better make room for more people on Verdansk. This limited-time mode will have 200 players and will be for quads. There’s not much more to say about it. It’s Warzone but with 200 people.

There will also be new Supply Run Contracts that direct you to a nearby Buy Station. If you get there in time, you get a special discount.

There’s also a new Juggernaut Royale mode that has an airdrop with Juggernaut armor in it. Go claim it to get the suit. Once a Juggernaut dies, another Juggernaut care package drops on the map.

The glint-free Spotter Scope will also be in Warzone. This is for sneaky snipers who don’t want to the glint to give away their position. Keep in mind that this isn’t a scope for your gun but more like binoculars for spotting.

The Rytec AMR is a new sniper rifle can be unlocked via a new in-game challenge. A blueprint variant is also in the Lost Souls bundle on the store. Infinity Ward claims it is “one of the deadliest semi-automatic anti-material rifles.”

Modern Warfare 1.23 Update Patch Notes | Cheshire Park

The Chesire Park map will also now be in rotation. This new map takes place in England with a conservatory filled with flowers. There are long sightlines as well as close quarters areas as well.

Modern Warfare 1.23 Update Patch Notes | Team Defender mode

The Team Defender mode is coming back to Call of Duty. It’s like CTF but there is only one flag. You get points for every second you have the flag. Take down the carrier for more points.

200 Player Warzone!

Verdansk will now be able to hold up to 200 players. Jump into Battle Royale Quads with 200 players!

Supply Run Contracts!

Upon activation, you and your squad (if applicable) will be directed to a nearby Buy Station. Reach it within the time limit to get a discount on Buy Station purchases.

Spotter Scope!

Think of this as a high-powered scope without the glint; this re-usable scope allows you to scan the environment around you and mark enemies without being detected. Perfect for scouting ahead, the Spotter Scope is a great tool for Operators who want to plan their next move while keeping a low profile.

DATA PACK DOWNLOAD:

Please note that the Season Four Reloaded update will have a download size of approximately 22-36 GB for owners of the full version of Modern Warfare. Console owners must install a secondary download of approximately 3.5GB, then reboot the game to access Multiplayer, if desired. A reminder, console players can choose also to uninstall/remove other data packs (e.g. Special Operations), if no longer needed for a smaller overall file size. For detailed information on uninstalling/removing other data packs, read this article.

Once the Season Four Reloaded update is fully completed, it should minimally increase the overall digital footprint of the full version of Modern Warfare.

Existing free-to-play Warzone players will have a download size of approximately 22GB-30GB, once finished there will be a reduction to the overall footprint on their machines.
