Call of Duty Modern Warfare early patch notes have been revealed ahead of the release of a brand new update on the PS4, Xbox One and PCs. The first big Call of Duty Modern Warfare update of 2020 will be going live soon, with the next patch available today on all platforms. Early patch notes have revealed that the biggest change the new Call of Duty update will bring to Modern Warfare is the addition of a new weapon.
The Call of Duty Modern Warfare update for Wednesday January 22 will bring with it a brand new Crossbow weapon.
Infinity Ward’s senior communications manager Ashton Williams said the new Crossbow weapon would be available through a challenge.

Last week an Infinity Ward Community Update alerted fans to the upcoming Call of Duty Modern Warfare update.
In a post online the Call of Duty Modern Warfare developers also revealed season one of the latest COD game would be extended to February 11.
Infinity Ward said: “We’re extending Season One, which will now end on February 11th. We’ve got new challenges, items, more game modes, new playlists…and of course, a pretty sweet Crossbow that you can earn by completing a challenge in-game, all coming over the next few weeks.
“We’ll also be flipping the switch on 2XP, 2X Weapon XP, and 2X Tier Progression events to help you finish up your Officer Ranks and Tiers, just in time for Season Two!
“Speaking of XP events, live now until Monday, January 20th, hop online and earn all the XP with 2XP and 2X Weapon XP!”
They added: “We’ve also been working on an update that we’re looking to publish to all platforms next week, so be sure to keep an eye out for patch notes!”
