Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone's 15GB update adds a powerful Contract and more

By Sean Carey,
A 15GB update for Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is available to download now. This update includes the usual weekly playlist changes for Modern Warfare, a powerful new contract for Warzone and a bunch of bug fixes.

COD Modern Warfare

For Modern Warfare's playlist update, Shoot the Ship 24/7 makes a return with Cranked and Grind modes. Blueprint Gunfight, Reinfected Ground War and 3v3 Cranked Gunfight have also been added. For Warzone, not much has changed in terms of game modes. Solos, Trios, Quads and Plunder Trios are all still available.

The big change for Warzone is a new in-game Contract. Picking up the Most Wanted Contract puts a bounty on yourself and makes you visible to all other players on the Tac Map. If you survive for long enough, you'll earn redeployment for all of your fallen teammates. The speed and sizing of the circle have also been adjusted, but Infinity Ward doesn't give specifics as to what that means. The cargo truck returns to Solos with reduced turning speed, acceleration and slower top speed, and a new item has been added. The Armour Satchel allows for players to hold up to eight armour plates instead of the normal five. This new satchel replaces the gas mask as the guaranteed reward for completing Scavenger contracts. The gas mask will remain as a rare item found in loot drops or purchasable from the Buy Station.

In the patch notes, Infinity Ward details how to download and install the latest update for those on console."Today’s update includes a required download for PlayStation and Xbox, about 15GBs, and is required to access Modern Warfare.

"Once you install the patch and select a mode, (multiplayer, campaign, Special Operations, etc.), you will be brought to a game install menu. Here, you’ll need to download Data Pack 1 from this menu. Once the download is complete, you will need to hard close and reopen the game application."

The list of patch notes is pretty long, and it contains a huge number of bug fixes and other changes. Head over to Infinity Ward's blog post to view the full list.

Infinity Ward has also said its new measures for suspected cheaters will go live at some point later this week.
