Continuing with the addition of new content during Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season One, Infinity Ward is delivering another classic game mode, selected from among those which featured in previous games. In this case, the mode is Drop Zone, an objective-based mode with similarities to Hardpoint. However, there’s a few things which help the Modern Warfare Drop Zone mode stand out from Hardpoint and other similar modes.
“Drop Zone is a team objective mode where players battle to hold objectives to win,” Activision wrote in a blog post. “Players earn points by being inside the drop zone. The first team to reach the required point total or hold the most points when the time expires is the winner. Killstreaks can only be earned via care packages that continually deploy while the drop zone is held.”
“You earn points for EACH team member in the drop zone,” the publisher continued. “Meaning the more players inside the zone, the more points per second that you earn. The zone moves around the map and is designated by a Care Package marker and red smoke.” And if you want to buy Call of Duty CP Points, visit 5mmo.com, a professional online in-game currency store.
The other aspect which sets Drop Zone apart from other modes is how Killstreaks work. Instead of gaining Killstreaks normally, the only way to acquire Killstreaks in Drop Zone is to claim and hold the drop zones themselves. Periodically, Care Packages drop into these zones for players to claim, and each such Package contains a random Killstreak. However, even after the Care Package drops, you still have to take the time to claim it. This means that your enemies can steal your Care Package if they force you off the drop zone in time.
In addition to Modern Warfare’s new mode, Warzone has also received a “Scopes and Scatter Guns Trios” option. This new twist on three-person matches limits weapons to snipers and shotguns, which should lead to some pretty intense games. Finally, Activision confirmed that the Double XP Weekend would run from this Friday (April 17th) at 6pm in UK time until the following Monday at 6pm.
