Open Combat Missions offer plenty of opportunities for discovery. Keep an eye out for crates, weapons, tacticals, and lethals as you play. Whether you prefer a stealth strategy or a more bombastic approach, each playthrough adds new weapons to your inventory, giving you more options and flexibility.

Multiplayer: maps and modes

Modern Warfare III brings back 16 core Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2009) maps with a modern twist. The game will feature a variety of modes, including 3v3v3, 6v6, and 32v32, with more modes scheduled for release in the coming weeks.

Multiplayer: weapons

Modern Warfare III launches with an impressive arsenal of new weapons, offering a customizable gunsmith feature to tailor weapons to your playstyle. Multiplayer Operators also have access to aftermarket parts that drastically change weapon functionality and appearance.

Insider tips:

Perks in the game have evolved to allow for more customization. Additionally, a new movement mechanic called Tac-Stance offers a middle ground between hip-fire and aiming down sights. Players should also be cautious around flash grenades and be prepared to avert their eyes to avoid being blinded.

Modern Warfare Zombies

Welcome to Operation Deadbolt. Modern Warfare Zombies offers a massive open-world experience where multinational operators collaborate with Task Force 141 to take down undead hordes and the private military company Terminus Outcomes. Players have several tasks, including unraveling intel through Operation Deadbolt, completing Contracts to earn Essence, and securing and extracting when the situation becomes untenable.
