CALL of Duty has just received a major update adding new maps, game modes and weapon changes.

The upgrade is available to download right now – and we've got all the details on what's new.

Call of Duty main changes revealed

There's a new Gunfight map called Aisle 9.

And a new Multiplayer map called Hardhat.

Infinity Ward has added the "Fearless" pack for players to nab.

And existing Special Operations have been changed, with some enemies now charging more frequently – or only only down-able via a headshot.

Call of Duty update – playlist changes

Here's the full list of Modern Warfare Multiplayer playlist changes:

  • Realism Moshpit with NVG

Call of Duty update – general fixes

There are loads of general fixes to improve quality of life during gameplay.

For instance, Infinity Ward has fixed a load of exploits that allow cheaters to escape the map.

This stops rogue players from preying on you using areas that are usually impossible to reach.

This includes one bug that allowed players to take the ATV out of the map on Aniyah Palace.

Here's Infinity Ward's full list of general fixes:

  • Infected and Gun Game now feature playlist text to reinforce that KDR and win loss are not affected

  • Fix for the ‘Time to Reap’ watch not displaying the time

  • Fix for some players spawning facing a wall while playing FFA on Talsik Backlot

  • Regular Infected playlist now has random care package drops!
  • Gun Game Reloaded is now in the Quick Play filter.

Call of Duty update – weapon changes
