Since the map will be added in time for Christmas, Shipment will also be getting a festive overhaul between December 21, 2022 and January 4, 2023. Players can look forward to an extra spalsh of color thanks to Christmas decorations like tinsel and fairy lights littered around the arena.

Shipment has become a staple of Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer’s CoDs, being reimagined in games such as Ghosts and WWII, and arriving in the first few months of both Modern Warfare and Vanguard.

With both Shoot House and Shipment in the game from Season 1 Reloaded, the fan-favorite Shoot the Ship Playlist will also likely make its Modern Warfare 2 debut.

Players didn’t have to wait long for Shoot House to arrive in Modern Warfare 2, as the map dropped alongside the Season 1 update on November 16.

This new version of Shoot House is situated in the jungles south of Las Almas to fit the setting of Modern Warfare 2.

Shoot House is the perfect place to grind weapons levels and camos, as it arrived alongside the ‘Tier 1 Playlist’ Hardcore mode. The devs kept bringing Hardcore Shipment 24/7 to Modern Warfare 2 2019’s featured playlists, often alongside Shipment in ‘Shoot the Ship.’

Season 1 Reloaded will also bring Raids to Modern Warfare 2’s Spec Ops mode, as well as Warzone 2’s “first post-launch update.”

It also adds the new Chimera Assault Rifle to the game, and taking it for a spin on Shipment when it arrives is the ideal way to level it up.
