January 28 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Update Adds New Deathmatch Domination, Weapon Changes

by Liana Ruppert

A new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare update is here and comes bringing with it a few weapon balance changes and a Playlist shakeup. Plus, it also brings back our beloved Shipment 24/7, so that’s always a good thing. 

The MP5 and M4 weapons have been given a small nerf with the Mp5 getting a reduced headshot multiplier and range reduction and the M4 seeing a damage decrease. The Crossbow is also getting a few tweaks while the M13 gets a small buff increasing its range and a decrease in recoil. 

The latest update also brings with it the addition of Deathmatch Domination as well as Gunfight Custom while removing Winter Docks to make way for Shipment 24/7!
