Experience Modern Warfare Multiplayer and Gunfight, Free-for-Everyone during the Multiplayer Free Access Weekend

Get more Modern Warfare during the three-day Free Access weekend which kicks off on June 12 at 10 AM PT and lasts until June 15 at 10AM PT. This action-packed weekend gives free-to-play Warzone users entrance to new Multiplayer content that debuted in Season Four including the Zhokov Scrapyard Multiplayer map and the Trench Gunfight map. 

Read on for complete details on the TWO playlists available during this epic weekend and tips on taking down the competition.

Face Off in Multiplayer

Your Operator is being enlisted in a fight, and it will take some grit to come out on top. This is Modern Warfare Multiplayer featuring the signature combat and fearsome arsenal you’ve come to know in Warzone. In the Multiplayer playlist, players will have a mix of deathmatch and objective modes across multiple maps to keep the combat fresh and give you plenty of opportunities to score some epic plays. 

The moshpit will offer two deathmatch modes: Team Deathmatch, a race to rack up 75 kills and Kill Confirmed, a 65-kill win condition where kills are only counted when they are confirmed by picking up enemy dog tags. Plus, there will be two objective modes: Domination, points are earned by holding objectives, first to 200 wins, and Hardpoint, points are earned by holding a single rotating objective, first to 250 wins. 

Need more intel on objective modes? Get complete details courtesy of the Call of Duty League™ on Hardpoint and Domination on their YouTube channel. 

The Multiplayer Playlist will feature the following maps: 

·      Scrapyard

·      Hardhat

·      Shoot House

·      Shipment

·      Rust

Tips for Multiplayer

1. Unlike Battle Royale, in most modes you have unlimited respawns. However, try to make sure anytime you go down, you take one or two enemies with you. 

2. In all modes, but particular objective ones, map knowledge is key to understanding the flow of combat. Once you find a rhythm, check for those chokepoints while you’re on the move and pre-fire before you snap on targets in known hotspots to ensure you take them out. 

3. Check your perks and Field Upgrades in your loadout to ensure they complement your playstyle. Like a stealthily approach? Consider Dead Silence. Want to earn Killstreaks faster? Double up with both Kill Chain and Hardline. Get a complete run down of how perks work in Multiplayer to make sure you equip them to your advantage.

Get in on a 3v3 Gunfight

It’s not just Multiplayer, but free-to-play Warzone users can also experience 3v3 Gunfight, a round based face-off to the death. In Gunfight players have a single life and are handed a randomized loadout (the same for all players) each round before the fight begins. Loadouts change every two rounds, and to win you must eliminate the other team or capture the Overtime flag. Teams must take 6 rounds to win the game.

The Gunfight Playlist will feature the following maps: 

·      Trench

·      Aisle 9

·      Bazaar

·      Speedball

·      King

·      Shipment

·      Rust

Tips for Gunfight

1. If you get a handed a weapon that isn’t your strength don’t worry. Loadouts change every two rounds and a new loadout can be just what you need to turn the tide.

2. You have lethal and tactical equipment – use it. Equipment can give you critical intel where the enemy is or isn’t or help smoke out a foe. 

3. If your team has more health, it isn’t necessary to grab the Overtime flag because you’ll be handed the W. Consider watching the flag before you rush because the other team most likely will also be heading toward the flag and you might pick them off en route.

The Tactician’s Guide to Gunfight on Gulag

Welcome to the Gulag, soldier. Let’s hope you’re in fighting shape, because there’s only two ways out of here.

Radioactive Agent, the seventh season for Call of Duty: Mobile, presents a new limited time event: Gunfight in the Gulag. This 2v2 tactical mode takes place on the iconic Gulag from Warzone, the Battle Royale experience from the world of Modern Warfare®. In this close-quarters map, aggression and precision win the day.

Read on for tips on how to work with your teammate to outsmart and outwit the opposition.

Map Overview

The Gulag is a small, symmetrical map featuring three primary vertical lanes that offer a clear view from one spawn to the other. Rows of sinks and shower stalls between the lanes offer cover and visual obstruction for players to weave in and out of view.

Don’t be fooled — Gulag’s straightforward design doesn’t necessarily mean that your fights will be simple as well. The sinks and shower stalls are large enough and close enough together that you can quickly lose sight of your enemies, suddenly turning every direction into a potential point of attack.

Rules of Engagement – Gunfight

Before we go in-depth on map strategies, let’s review how Gunfight works.

It’s 2v2, so pair up with a friend or matchmake with a random player to form your team. 

Your Loadout

There are no custom loadouts in Gunfight. The game assigns the same loadout to all players, consisting of a primary and secondary weapon as well as lethal and tactical equipment. All weapon classes are on the board, from assault rifles to sniper rifles as your primary weapon to pistols and launchers as your secondary. The loadout changes every two rounds.

There are no Scorestreaks or Operator Skills in Gunfight, and there is zero health regeneration.

Your Mission

Gunfight is round based. To win a round you must eliminate the enemy team or capture the overtime objective. If neither team captures the overtime objective, victory goes to the team with the most health.

The first team to win six rounds wins the match.

Gulag Tactics

These rounds are quick, so get your trigger finger ready and play aggressively. There are two main opening strategies to consider: look straight down the center or side lanes to try and catch an enemy out in the open or take cover to hide from view in an attempt to surprise and flank the enemy.

Aim down sights if you’re checking the center or side lane; the milliseconds you save in doing so will win rounds against enemies less prepared. Or move between cover to stay out of sight, but don’t sit and wait. A still target is an easy target. Stay on the move, seek out the enemy, and keep moving when you engage them.

Use your voice comms and be quick and concise in your callouts: “middle,” “left,” “rushing,” “back spawn,” whatever gets the point across. If your teammate isn’t talking, watch for patterns in their strategy. If they’re constantly rushing forward, rush with them when you’re ahead or hold back and provide cover when you’re down. Switch up your strategies so you don’t become predictable.

Top 5 Tips

5. Use All Your Tools. When you’re handed a sniper rifle, switch to the pistol and rush forward for a close-range attack; use your smoke grenades to confuse and disorient; drop a grenade to blast a pursuing enemy. Always keep them guessing.

4. Overwatch in Overtime. Consider using the objective as bait in overtime, especially if your side has more health than the other. The enemy will be forced to take it if they want the win, and you’ll be ready to shoot when they get there.   

3. Keep Your Cool. Even when you’re down several rounds, there’s always the chance of coming back for the win. Take it round by round, and don’t let yourself become frustrated. An overconfident enemy often becomes a predictable enemy. Keep your cool, counter, and knock them down a peg.

2. Resist the Reload. We’re all guilty of it, firing off a few rounds and then reloading when there’s still plenty left in the mag. Resist that temptation. Gulag is a tiny map and getting caught halfway through a reload animation puts you at a serious disadvantage. And if you really do need the ammo, consider switching to your secondary instead.

1. Make A New Friend. Communication is so important in 2v2, especially in Gulag where enemies can quickly vanish from sight. If you find a good teammate, send them a friend invite and pair up for more matches. Your win rate will shoot up and you might even make a new friend in the process.

See you in the Gulag.

Modern Warfare® Games of Summer Gunfight Tournament

10 Gunfight Tournament Tips

Mastery of Gunfight helps you in every other mode, by emphasizing the importance of alertness and situational awareness. And it doesn’t hurt that in the tournament the further you get, the greater the rewards. Here are ten tips to help you come out on top.

10. Two Rounds then Switch. Every loadout change can be an opportunity to play the map in a different way. Consider everything you’re given and think up a new opening strategy.

9. Watch the Skulls… When your teammate goes down, a skull indicator will show you where they fell. There’s a good chance that the enemy will still be nearby, so approach with caution and avenge your ally.

8. …and the Red Indicator. When you or your teammate spots an enemy, a red indicator will show the area where the enemy was spotted. Just like with skull indicators, the enemy may still be in the area, so stay alert.

7. Work Together. Talk to each other. Discussing your opening moves and calling out enemy positions makes a huge difference in your ability to win Gunfight matches.

6. Use Your Secondary. This even goes for your fists if you don’t have an actual secondary. Use the best available weapon depending on the situation and your preferred playstyle.
