After a slight delay, the promised update has finally arrived earlier today to add four new weapons to Call of Duty: Warzone.
According to the patch notes posted on the official website, the next time players enter Verdansk, they will be able to search for the 725 Rifle, MK2 Carbine Shotgun, 50 GS Pistol, and EBR-14 Shotgun.
For those who don't know or have forgotten, the 725 rifle is the same infamous Modern Warfare weapon that was slashing targets from afar. Infinity Ward eventually had to drop the shotgun to the ground last year since the weapon was wreaking havoc in competitive spheres. That said, the 725 rifle is still a force to be seen up close and in Warzone, which means easily hitting with fully armored opponents.
However, keep in mind that the update also fixes the melee damage of all shotguns in Warzone to prevent a single shotgun shot from taking down a fully armored player. However, getting the stopping power upgrade will allow players to take down fully armored opponents with a single close-range shotgun shot.
Warzone now has more than 30 million players worldwide, a figure revealed by Activision last week. Due to the current coronavirus epidemic, millions of people have self-isolated at home. Many of these have resorted to online games. So, that 30 million figure is likely to be a lot bigger now for Warzone.
For those still unaware, Warzone is the previously mentioned battle royale mode for Modern Warfare. There are two ways to gain access. Anyone who already owns Modern Warfare simply needs to update their client. Those who are still sitting on the fence from the latest installment of Call of Duty can simply download Warzone for free - without having access to the main single player and multiplayer of course.
We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions that should help new players better understand the new Call of Duty mode. Going through this handy guide will clear up any confusion players might have and set them up and ready for the next game of Warzone.
Call of Duty: Warzone is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
