When Can You Expect New Playlist Updates In Warzone & MW3?

Traditionally, Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone will receive new playlist updates every Wednesday at 09:00 PT (12:00 ET / 17:00 GMT), but in recent months they've often delayed this until the same time on Thursday. But these times are often disrupted by new events and seasonal releases, so treat these times as a general rule rather than an exact schedule.

Warzone Modes Explained

Battle Royale

Well...yeah, have you played Warzone? Okay, sorry, I sound like a d*ck. This is the standard Warzone mode, usually you can play it in teams of one, two, three, or four, and the aim is to survive in a slowly shrinking area. You don't have respawns, but you do get one opportunity when you die to fight in the gulag, and if you win your fight you can redeploy to the map. Otherwise, one of your teammates can pay for you to respawn at a buy station (if they're still alive).


Resurgence is usually played on a smaller map and meant to be way more aggressive. The main difference to Battle Royale is that players can respawn as long as at least one of their squad mates is still alive. The respawn timer will increase with every death and every closing circle, and the last team standing wins.

And there you have it folks, that was your update on all the modes available to play this week. Was it the playlist update you wanted? Or are you still enjoying the campaign?
