Since the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and the free-to-play Warzone, the developers have been hard at work to bring frequent updates and new content to the shooter.

This weeks update is set to bring with it Gunsmith customs, two new cosmetic bundles, the MK9 Bruen LMG, the return of a map playlist and a brand new contract for Warzone.

Here are the key changes coming to this week's Call of Duty update which is expected to be released on Thursday, 30th April.

The highly accurate LMG can be acquired by purchasing the 'Encryption' bundle or by completing changes found in the weapons menu. 

It is not yet clear if the MK9 Bruen LMG will be making its way into Warzone.


New Warzone Contract - 'Most Wanted'

Currently, there are three contracts in the game - Recon, Bounty, and Scavenger with each of them earning the player awards for completing the objectives.

Well for this first time since release Warzone will be getting a brand new contract - Most Wanted.

Upon starting the contract every other team in Verdansk will know your location - survive for long enough and you will be able to redeploy all your fallen comrades - all without having to spend one dollar of your hard-earned cash.
