Given these patch notes, some of the biggest changes coming with Update 1.27 include Season 6 content like Operators Farah and Nikolai, as well as new weapons like SP-R208 and AS Val. Both sniper rifle and assault rifle classes have become quite popular during the game’s tenure, so it makes sense that Infinity Ward brings more weapons from those classes to the game. It also doesn’t hurt to know that both weapons have a history in the Black operations even in what looks like a suitable track in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War next month.

Perhaps the most critical change players might notice from Update 1.27 are the new tunnels that hide Verdansk’s bustling metro system. In these tunnels, fighters are free to engage in close-quarters firefights that weren’t as common in the battle royale outdoors. Could this new area be hiding some Easter eggs for players to discover? We’d bet considering some fans think Modern Warfare Season 6 could be the last formal season of the game’s DLC. With two more live events believed to be on the horizon, it’s once again Warzone which gets the most interesting seasonal reviews. That said, Call of Duty Modern Warfare Season 6 offers all multiplayer fans a lot to do in the next couple of weeks.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is now available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
