Activision has shared a new blog post detailing what’s coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare this week.

This week in the game includes new playlists – Snowfight and Drop Zone; Holiday celebrations including Double XP & 2X Tier Earn Rate, and more.

Drop Zone returns to Call of Duty since Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 this week – starting on December 24 at 10AM PT, alongside Snowfight – a variation of Gunfight on the Winter Docks map.

There will also be Double XP and Double Tier Earn Rate starting December 24 at 10AM PT and ends on December 27 at 10AM PT.

From Activision:

The Holidays from Modern Warfare continue with an epic new limited time Gunfight game mode – Snowfight and the debut of Drop Zone for standard Multiplayer. Both new modes will be available on December 24 at 10AM PT until December 31 at 10AM PT.

In celebration of the Holidays, global Double XP and Double Tier earn rate will be active on December 24 at 10 AM PT! Raise your rank and accelerate your tier progression during this event until December 27 at 10AM PT. Following this, there will be a tier sale for those looking to make even further progress on the Battle Pass. 

Available on the Holiday-themed map Winter Docks, grab a partner and enjoy a classic snowball fight in this new game mode, Snowfight. Players will have only snowballs instead of weapons to eliminate their opponents.

Drop Zone comes to Modern Warfare with its distinct objective play that rewards players even more than standard game modes for playing the objective. The only way to earn Killstreaks is by continually holding the drop zone to have a Care Package delivered to your location.

Alongside, the Nikto Operator Bundle which launched last week there’s another new Featured Bundle coming to the Store: the ‘Mad Chemist’. 

The ‘Mad Chemist’ ups Krueger’s already menacing look with a gas mask ready for an experiment gone wrong. The bundle includes the ‘Final Countdown’ watch, two tier skips, the ‘Moral Argument’ weapon blueprint, a Legendary handgun weapon blueprint the ‘Volatile’ and more. Go to the Store to see all the goods available this week. 

Stay tuned for the latest news and more.
