Call of Duty Modern Warfare Season 3 adds Warzone Quads mode and more maps, patch notes here

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s season 3 update is rolling out today, with some new additions to both the regular multiplayer and to Warzone. One of the main things in that update comes for the free to play Warzone mode where squads have got slightly bigger thanks to the new Quads mode. Warzone will also see changes throughout the season with loot changing as silenced variants of weapons appear, and other meta changes take place. A new operator in the form of Alex will also be available to play as. Vehicle skins are also being added so you can personalise your rides a bit.

In the standard multiplayer mode there will be new maps including three dropping today. Those maps are Talsik Backlit, Hovec Sawmill, and Aniyah Incursion. All will be available in the 6v6 modes. In addition there are two new weapons to earn and they are the Renetti handgun and the SKS marksman rifle.

Later on in the season there will be two more operators, Ronin and Isles, as well as a new Gunfight map called Aisle 9 and another multiplayer map called Hardhat. Plus more modes including Gun Game Reloaded and Reinfected Ground War.

The patch notes for the new update can be read below.
