Infinity Ward announced a new Twitch drop initiative on Wednesday afternoon. From April 29- May 6, players can watch various Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone Twitch streams to earn exclusive in-game loot. There are three new rewards, one each for every hour of Call of Duty streams you watch.

On Twitch, there are certain streamers who are “drop eligible.” By linking your Call of Duty and Twitch accounts, you can watch these streams and tally up your watch time — it doesn’t matter if the eligible streamer is playing Warzone or Modern Warfare. Some popular drop-eligible streamers include Dr. Disrespect and Nadeshot.

For watching one hour of Call of Duty, you’ll earn the “Swing Into Action” Calling Card. For two hours, you’ll earn the “Skull Trooper” Emblem. And for three hours, you can pick up the “Crimson Standard” watch for your character.

To earn Twitch drops, you need to have a Twitch account and a Call of Duty account. Once you have both of those, you need to link them together on the Call of Duty website — note that Infinity Ward suggests you re-link your accounts if you’ve already linked them before. Once you’ve linked both of your accounts, you simply need to watch “drop eligible” streams. Infinity Ward clarifies that you can watch multiple streamers without having to reset your timer.

If you’re interested in these drops, you have just over a week to watch three hours of Call of Duty on Twitch.
