Call of Duty adding one-hit kill weapon TOMORROW – Modern Warfare update guide

CALL OF DUTY nuts will get their hands on a brand new weapon this week – and it kills enemies in one hit.

The crossbow is one of several updates coming to the hit shooter on Wednesday, game-maker Activision revealed in a now-deleted blog post.

Activision said the update would roll out this week but did not give a specific release date, reports gaming site CharlieIntel.

We've got all the details below.

Crossbow

The crossbow is a new weapon that kills your foes with one shot.

It'll arrive on Modern Warfare's multiplayer mode on Wednesday, January 22.

"Meet your new friend, the Crossbow," Activision wrote.

"This super-sleek one-hit kill weapon is available to earn and add to your Modern Warfare arsenal."

"You’ll have to complete a marksman rifle related to challenge in order to earn this bad bolt of a weapon," Activision said.

Playlist and map changes

Gamers can also expect a spruce up of CoD's multiplayer playlist system.

For a start, map Aniyah Palace returns to Ground War.

"Play large-scale Multiplayer battles at this exquisite palace and landscape," Activision said.

"Jump in to play this Ground War experience on January 22."

The following modes will be replaced from Modern Warfare's featured playlist:

That's not to say they'll disappear from the game forever. We may still see them elsewhere in future.

'All the fixes' patch

Fans may have to wait a little longer for a patch that will bring what developers describe as "all the fixes" to the game.

Gamers have complained since the game's launch about a number of glitches that the team are yet to address.

Earlier this month, Joe Cecot, co-design director of multiplayer at Infinity Ward, wrote on Twitter : “[The patch] should launch in January. Don’t have an exact date."

He continued: "Our next big update should have all of the fixes. We start pushing this update through this week. I don’t have the exact date. Sorry.”

While we don't know when the fix will be coming, we do know what will be resolved.

Activision has marked the following issues as "fixed in a future update".
