CALL OF DUTY nuts will get their hands on a brand new weapon this week and it kills enemies in one hit.
The crossbow is one of several updates coming to the hit shooter on Wednesday, game-maker Activision revealed in a now-deleted blog post.
The crossbow is a new one-hit-kill weapon coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare this week
Activision said the update would roll out this week but did not give a specific release date, reports gaming site CharlieIntel.
We’ve got all the details below.
The crossbow is a new weapon that kills your foes with one shot.
It’ll arrive on Modern Warfare’s multiplayer mode on Wednesday, January 22.
“Meet your new friend, the Crossbow,” Activision wrote.
“This super-sleek one-hit kill weapon is available to earn and add to your Modern Warfare arsenal.”
To find the weapon, visit the Marksman Rifles tab in the Loadout menu.
“Youll have to complete a marksman rifle related to challenge in order to earn this bad bolt of a weapon,” Activision said.
The game came out in October 2019
Playlist and map changes
Gamers can also expect a spruce up of CoD’s multiplayer playlist system.
For a start, map Aniyah Palace returns to Ground War.
“Play large-scale Multiplayer battles at this exquisite palace and landscape,” Activision said.
“Jump in to play this Ground War experience on January 22.”
The following modes will be replaced from Modern Warfare’s featured playlist:
- 1v1 Gunfight
- 5v5 Shipment 247
- Gun Game
That’s not to say they’ll disappear from the game forever. We may still see them elsewhere in future.

‘All the fixes’ patch
Fans may have to wait a little longer for a patch that will bring what developers describe as “all the fixes” to the game.
Gamers have complained since the game’s launch about a number of glitches that the team are yet to address.
Earlier this month, Joe Cecot, co-design director of multiplayer at Infinity Ward, wrote on Twitter : [The patch] should launch in January. Dont have an exact date.”
He continued: “Our next big update should have all of the fixes. We start pushing this update through this week. I dont have the exact date. Sorry.
While we don’t know when the fix will be coming, we do know what will be resolved.
Activision has marked the following issues as “fixed in a future update”.
- Players are able to capture the Hardpoint while in the hotel on St. Petrograd
- The Cruise Missile to kill players while out of bounds on Shipment
- Players can cancel their recovery state when sliding
- Fixes for various exploits and graphical errors on Ground War maps
- There is bush on Port of Verdansk that is killing players when walking into it
- Player collision
- Player cannot take or give damage, cannot affect flags in Dom, no player nametag
