Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Update 1.12 Adds New Maps and Modes
After downloading the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Update 1.12, fans of the popular first-person shooter can check out Shipment and Vacant, two fan favorite Call of Duty 4 maps that have been reimagined for the new game. Additionally, Modern Warfare fans can hop into the returning regular Gunfight mode and try the new holiday-themed version of Docks, which is simply called Winter Docks.
As far as new game modes go, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Update 1.12 brings back regular Gunfight, as previously mentioned, and it also adds Cranked. Cranked is a game mode that was originally featured in Call of Duty: Ghosts and Infinite Warfare. Inspired by the action movie Crank, Cranked forces players to get kills in quick succession or else their character will literally explode. Cranked may not be the most popular game mode in Call of Duty history, but its fast-paced nature may actually solve the camping problem that the game seems to have.
There are also a new playlist for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare fans to check out after they download Update 1.12. This is the Season 1 Moshpit, which lets players play matches on both Shipment and Vacant. Whether or not there will be a new playlist that focuses on just Shipment or just Vacant is unclear at this time, but it likely depends on how popular the two maps become moving forward.
Prior to the update, there was some concern from the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare community that the addition of this new content would mean losing the fan favorite mode Infected. After all, Infinity Ward removed Gun Game and replaced it with a new mode, but luckily that’s not the case with Update 1.12. Modern Warfare fans can still play Infected, and they can now do so on some new maps.
Keeping Infected in place will go a long way in making Call of Duty: Modern Warfare fans react more positively to Update 1.12 than they have to other recent updates in the game. However, it remains to be seen if the new update will introduce any new issues that the developers will need to address.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
