Modern Warfare Gunsmith Customs, New Weapon & More Coming This Week

modern warfare playlist update may 8

Just yesterday, we posted a gameplay clip of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare new LMG (lightmachine gun) set to come in Season 3. Today, Infinity Ward has confirmed that this new weapon, along with Modern Warfare Gunsmith Customs, and more are coming in tomorrow’s patch!

In the latest “This Week in Call of Duty” blog post, Infinity Ward detailed the Data Pack download set to come tomorrow, and a host of other new stuff.

Data Pack Download Instructions:

For this week’s update, owners of the full version of Modern Warfare will have two separate downloads in order to complete the update. Once the update is live, players will download the patch as normal. Once that is completed, when an owner of the full version of Modern Warfare tries to access Multiplayer, Special Ops, or Campaign they will be prompted to download the Data Pack DLC. During the Data Pack DLC download, you’ll have access to Warzone so, jump into a match of Battle Royale or Plunder. When the download is complete, players must restart the game to access all modes of Modern Warfare. Free-to-play Warzone users will not have a secondary download to download the Data Pack DLC with this update. 

The new LMG will be called the MK9 Bruen and here’s our first look and official description:

Add some more firepower to your arsenal with the MK9 Bruen LMG. This high accuracy and reliable damage weapon can be acquired via the ‘Encryption’ bundle or by completing a challenge found in the Weapons menu. Head to the LMG tab to find LMG Foxtrot and complete the associated challenge to earn the weapon or get the Legendary ‘The Glitch’ blueprint in the ‘Encryption’ bundle in the Store. 

Another thing being added tomorrow is what Infinity Ward calls Gunsmith Customs. Players will now be able to mix and match parts from blueprints!

Expand your creativity to build lethal weapons from blueprints in your Armory with Gunsmith Customs. This update allows you to mix and match attachments from blueprints of the same weapon to create epic hybrid blueprints that have unique looks, styles, and capabilities. Get more details on Gunsmith Customs and suggestions on building your ultimate hybrid blueprint this week on the Games Blog. 

Those looking for something to grind, the Obisidan weapon camos will be debuting tomorrow as well. More details on how to unlock this camo will be revealed this week, but we do know that it won’t require that Damascus camo be unclocked.

There will be a new Contract available in Warzone this week as well, and as we’ve mentioned before, the Shoot the Ship playlist is coming back! Finally, double XP, double weapon XP and double Battle Pass tier progression will all be available this weekend as well from May 1 at 10 a.m. PT to May 4, 10 a.m. PT.
