CoD Modern Warfare Update Patch Notes: 3 Takeaways From the Jan. 7 Update

1. 1v1 Gunfight

Gunfight is a tense and fast-paced game mode included at launch in the latest game. It pits four players in small-scale series of rounds where each player is given a single life. Speed and clever thinking are promoted, but clever coordination with a teammate is what truly makes or breaks a match. The patch notes shook this already new formula up even further by introducing a new version of Gunfight, operating on the same rules with the exception that only two players compete in a match.

2. Gone with Grind; Hello Gun Game!

Another game mode seeing some shakeup is Grind being removed for Gun Game. Tasking players to compete against one another in a free-for-all match where guns are fixed and the only way to get a better one is to get a kill. Plenty of players are sure to rejoice at this news. Plenty more are sure to rage when they get a humiliating knife in the back, knocking them backwards a gun on the tier list.

3. Shipment 24/7

The last change is the return of Shipment 24/7. First appearing earlier in Season 1, the Shipment map is appearing for the first time as a full standalone selection in 24/7 playlists. Although, this change also comes with the removal of the Shoot House map from those same playlists.
