Another week, another list of events, bonuses, and especially a playlist update for the Call of Duty series. The playlist system keeps content rotating in and out of the multiplayer options for both Modern Warfare and Warzone, ensuring the player base sticks around a lot longer because people don’t get burned out having everything on hand. As of July 28, 2020, the latest playlist update has gone live for both titles. Here’s what you’ll be able to find when you log on to your game of choice under the Modern Warfare umbrella.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Playlist Update 7/28

First off, the major playlist update for Modern Warfare proper, as per the official social output from developer Infinity Ward:

  • Gunfight (no Blueprints)
  • Gunfight 3v3 - Knives Only
  • Deathmatch Domination and Drop Zone
  • Shipment 24/7
  • Shoot House 24/7

If you hop over to the ridiculously popular Call of Duty: Warzone battle royale mode, you can find the following change:

  • Removes Plunder Quads
  • Adds Plunder: Blood Money Trios

There you have it; until the next playlist update, these are the game types you’ll be running into when you and your squad make the drop into both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone. 

Playlist rotation systems may not make a lot of sense of paper, but in practice they’re a net positive for both the developers and the community. Like we mentioned before, rotating game modes in and out helps keep them fresh, thus contributing to player retention. But another factor that’s less obvious, is that for games like this having all the game modes available all the time can stretch the matchmaking pretty thin, leading to longer wait times, lower populations, and ultimately a community that loses interest.

Which mode are you most excited to jump into during this week’s playlist rotation? Is there one you’re hype to see come back, or is there one you hate to see go for now? Hit us up on the Prima Games Facebook and Twitter social media feeds to let us know what you’re thinking.
