New MW3 Community Playlist “Infected” Coming Feb 5 on Xbox 360 and PS3

Share this:

Robert Bowling has announced on the official forums that Modern Warfare 3 will receive its second community playlist, Infected, this weekend on February, 5th.

After the introduction of Drop Zone to positive feedback, Infinity Ward wanted to keep rotating playlists in Modern Warfare 3. Infected is one of the fan favorite private gamemodes. The new playlist will be added on Xbox 360 and PS3 this Sunday. However, PC players have to a bit longer; no date was given on when it will be added.

Game Structure

10 seconds into the match, the game will pick you as “the infected” or one of the survivors. Bowling explained, “the game ends when either all players have been turned into infected or the game timer ends. A Survivor’s goal is to stay alive until the game ends, however, if you’re turned Infected, your goal is to turn all other survivors into infected by killing them.” Each side will be assigned to specific loadouts, but different variations of the gamemode will rotate. In terms of points, Bowling stated “you will receive 100 points per kill (whether you’re a survivor or infected). Survivors receive an additional 100 points each time an infected kills another survivor.”

The following are the loadout specific gamemodes in Infected with the frequency of matchmaking in parenthesis as shown on the forums:
