Modern Warfare & Warzone Season 6: Date, Subway, & Operators

Activision and Infinity Ward announced that Season 6 for Modern Warfare and Warzone begins on Tuesday, September 29.

The company released a new cinematic trailer for Season 6, unveiling the new operators coming including Farrah and Nikolai.

The trailer also revealed the new Subway system coming to Warzone, allowing players a new way to traverse the map as they play.

Here’s a look at the Subway system:

Trailer:

The Call of Duty blog has provided more details on what to expect from the two new Operators, who are part of the upcoming Season 6 Battle Pass.

Farah

“This occupation must end. That we can all agree on, yes?”

The founder and Commander of the Urzikstani Liberation Force, Farah, grew up a fighter after surviving imprisonment by Roman Barkov. She’s an exceptional soldier and leader that’s known a lifetime of war. Her skills have been further honed with additional training with the SAS, and she’s led dangerous missions to fight off Al-Qatala forces and other regimes stationed in her country. 

Following the events of Campaign, Farah joins the Chimera of the Allegiance reuniting with Iskra, a former scout of hers. Farah is instantly unlocked at Tier 0 of the Season Six Battle Pass. In addition to Farah’s base skin, players can earn additional skins and other rewards by completing her Operator Missions. 

Nikolai

“Nikolai, you’ve been a bad boy.” “From you that’s a compliment.”

Nikolai is the leader of the Chimera, a PMC within the Allegiance. A long-time friend to Captain Price, Nikolai initially worked with Price, Kamarov, and Kate Laswell to build the Armistice to stop the rise of a new AQ. After the Armisitice collapse, Nikolai now takes the battle in his own hands to stop Zakhaev. 

Nikolai is a Russian patriot at heart with a deep love for his country only matched by his love for weaponry. He’s known as a fixer and can acquire most anything, anywhere. Despite his murky background, he’ll always choose what’s right when it counts. Nikolai is unlocked at Tier 100 of the Season Six Battle Pass. Players can complete Operator Missions to earn additional skins for Nikolai and other rewards. 

Season 6 will begin on Sept. 29 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Alongside the new content teased in the trailer, there will also be more to come in MP.

Stay tuned for the latest on Season 6.

Activision files cease and desist letter against another cheat manufacturer

Activision Blizzard continues to take down cheat manufacturer sites to stop the spread of different cheats for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone.

In August, the company filed a lawsuit against CXCheats for illegally creating cheats to be used in an IP owned by Activision Blizzard. CXCheats since deleted all cheats for Modern Warfare and Warzone in compliance with the lawsuit.

Now, in September, another large cheat manufacturer, GatorCheats, has said that Activision Blizzard has filed a cease and desist letter to stop them from making cheats for Call of Duty games.

The owner of GatorCheats said in their Discord that the first letter was filed by in May 2020, but they did not fully comply with that – opting to allow cheats to continue to be available.

In May 2020, Activision Blizzard’s attorneys contacted me via a Cease and Desist letter. Considering this event, I decided to act on my already pending decision to close all sales to new customers for my product relating to Modern Warfare and Warzone.

Activision has since escalated the requests. In Sept. 2020, the owner of GatorCheats claims that Activision Blizzard served another cease and desist letter. But, this time, a PI showed up at his residence with the letter and informed him of what Activision knows about their site and the owners behind it.

In September 2020, Activision Blizzard’s attorneys had another Cease and Desist letter hand delivered to me by who I assume was a PI, considering he knew my family members by name and made a point to showcase that he did. Also in September 2020, I received very clear communication in a follow up from Activision Blizzard’s attorneys communicating that they would litigate (file a law suit against me) if I didn’t comply with continuation of stopped sales as well as a complete stoppage of interaction with and updating of any products related to their client’s products.

The full letter from the owner states that he will “never make or create” a cheat for an Activision Blizzard product again after receiving the letters and a visit from them at his house.

Activision has not commented on their anti-cheat initiatives since June, where the company said they continue to ban players on a regular basis.

Infinity Ward dev: Xbox Series S could be ‘bottleneck’ for next-gen development

Earlier this week, Microsoft officially announced their lower-performing next-generation console called the Xbox Series S.

The company announced that the Xbox Series S will be perform lower than that of the Xbox Series X as it’s an all digital console and priced at $299.

As part of the announcement, Microsoft presented the specifications for the Xbox Series S console.

Here’s the specifications, compared to the Xbox Series X:

The biggest differences developers have instantly noticed is the CPU clock speed of 3.4GHz and the GPU of only 4 TFLOPS compared to the 12 TFLOPS of the Xbox Series X.

Developers have stated online that the fear this could be a potential development hurdle console when games completely switch over to being ‘next-gen’ only developed. Right now, majority of 3rd party devs are making games for the PC, PS4, Xbox One family, alongside Xbox Series X, S, and PS5.

Infinity Ward’s Designer says on Twitter that the Xbox Series S could end up being a bottleneck for development when next-gen only games start to be developed, as they’ll have to develop for a console with only 4TFLOPS. PS5 has around 10TFLOPS of power in its GPU.

The first Call of Duty game to hit next-gen consoles will be Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The game is expected to be ‘true 4K’ on PS5 and Xbox Series X with up to 120FPS play for those consoles.

Treyarch has not stated what the performance will be like for the Xbox Series S console.

Modern Warfare & Warzone Sept. 8 Update: New Operator & More

Activision Blog has officially posted what to expect in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone for the week starting Sept. 8.

For MP fans, Shoot the Ship will stay in the rotation through the end of the month, 2v2 Gunfight returns, and more.

For Warzone fans, 50v50 Warzone Rumble mode will make a return this weekend, with an experience around the Stadium.

And, there’s a new Operator – Morte – available in the Modern Warfare and Warzone store!

Here’s the full debrief on what’s new:

Modern Warfare®

As the Games of Summer judges are finalizing their scores, Morte is set to arrive in his debut Store Bundle, Multiplayer will have a Moshpit of Party Games, and prepare for a weekend Rumble playlist in Warzone alongside its gold standard modes.

Arriving via the “Morte Operator Bundle,” the man they call “death” is ready to reinforce the Coalition’s Warcom division. In addition to his imposing Old West style, Morte is a deadly sharpshooter who served in the legendary Col Moschin Paratrooper regiment.

Along with his “Sentenza” skin, his debut bundle also includes two blueprints, a Legendary Marksman Rifle and a Legendary Assault Rifle, which both have red, white, and green “Morte” tracers in honor of his Italian heritage.

Among other Store Bundles set to drop this week is the Devourer, which features a Legendary Assault Rifle Blueprint configured with a high-caliber magazine that can chew through an enemy team with accurate semi-auto fire.

A new operator arriving to Modern Warfare is worth throwing a party in Multiplayer over. Specifically, head to Multiplayer this week to play in the featured Party Mode Moshpit playlist, complete with non-traditional experiences like Gun Game. Don’t worry about kills, deaths, wins or losses, because they all don’t count in this playlist. What does count, however, are the friends (or enemies) you make along the way.

Other playlists this week include two 2v2 Gunfight modes: the standard Gunfight, as well as Gunfight On-Site Procurement (OSP), where your loadout is based on what you pick up around the map. Standard Ground War will replace Boots on the Ground War, while Demolition shifts to the Featured Playlist spotlight straight out of the Quick Play menu.

And, as promised, Shoot the Ship is still here, clocking in for its third week during its month-long featured playlist residency (AKA “Shiptember”). Keep progressing on your road to Damascus or Obsidian camos and Weapon Mastery challenges, or just go for some fast Ws on these two chaotic community-favoritemaps.

As for Warzone, get ready to rumble this upcoming weekend when 50v50 Warzone Rumble makes its return, which will feature an experience based around Verdansk Stadium. Before and during the weekend, expect to see the classic Battle Royale and Plunder modes round out the Warzone playlist rotation.

This Week in Modern Warfare & Warzone: Operator Morte arrives

A new Operator for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone will be available starting Tuesday, Sept 8.

The new Operator is an Italian Operator named Morte and is played by Italian actor Fabio Rovazzi.

“Being a character in Call of Duty has always been a secret and impossible dream of mine,” Rovazzi said, “and there are no words to describe the excitement of the opportunity to give my voice and my appearance to an operator. I also love the character tribute to the Italian Western tradition. When I think that millions of players will be able to play with my character, I feel flattered and satisfied beyond imagination.”

Rovazzi has posted a YouTube video showcasing the process of him being motion captured and voice captured to be added to Modern Warfare and Warzone.

His recording session for motion capture happened earlier this year, so he was in person in LA at the Activision studio.

He also sent in voice recording lines to be used with his character.

Rovazzi’s new Morte character is also on the cover of Rolling Stone’s Italy magazine, with a feature length article available to read here (in Italian).

The new Morte Operator bundle will be available in Modern Warfare & Warzone starting Sept. 8.
