Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare both received a multiplayer patch on Tuesday morning that brings with it new modes and playlist restructuring. This includes a new twist on Warzone, altering the trios playlist.

In Warzone, the BR Trios playlist is now “Scopes and Scatter Guns.” This change alters the trios mode, with snipers and shotguns as the only available weapons. It’s unclear how long this new playlist will last, but the regular trios playlist is currently unavailable.

In Modern Warfare, Drop Zone is now part of both core and Hardcore multiplayer. Deathmatch Domination is no longer available, nor is NVG Realism Mosh Pit. The game also features the new “Stir Crazy” playlists in both core and Hardcore.

The patch also features several bug fixes for Warzone and Modern Warfare.

Here is the complete list of Infinity Ward’s April 14 patch notes:


Modern Warfare

  • Adding Drop Zone in both core and Hardcore (Removes Deathmatch Domination)
  • Adding ‘Stir Crazy’ Playlist - 10v10 playlist with Cranked, Kill Confirmed, Domination, and Hardpoint
  • Adding Hardcore ‘Stir Crazy’ Playlist - 10v10 playlist with Kill Confirmed, Cranked, Domination, and Team Deathmatch
  • Removing NVG Realism Mosh Pit


  • Adding “Scopes and Scatter Guns” BR Trios playlist - Snipers and Shotguns only (Replaces regular BR Trios)


  • Fixed an issue on PC where players would lose the ability to use Field Upgrades purchased when replacing Armor Plates while in the Buy Station menu
  • Upon picking up a dropped SKS, the initial raise audio would be heard globally. This has been fixed.
  • Fix for Azur’s “Brother’s Keeper” skin displaying the incorrect headgear while in the multiplayer squad walk
  • Added icons to the killcam to show if you were killed by someone using Dead Silence or Stopping Power
  • Fix for the stats graph for the Renetti appearing incorrectly
