New Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Update Removes Night Maps From Hardcore Modes

Infinity Ward has released the full patch notes for the newest update to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Most of the update is geared towards general bug fixes and balancing changes, but it makes map changes to Hardcore multiplayer modes too.

The most notable change is the removal of all night maps from the Hardcore modes. Both Hardcore difficulty and night maps are among the best new additions to Infinity Ward's first-person shooter. The patch notes make no mention of when the night maps may be added again.

It's not all doom and gloom though, as the update adds a bunch of content back into the game too. Shoot House 24/7 makes a return, replacing Crash 24/7. Docks also makes a return to the Gunfight map rotation, Grazna Raid is added to Hardcore Team Death Match, and Arklov Peak is added to both Hardcore Team Death Match and Hardcore Headquarters.

All these changes and more are outlined in the full patch notes, which are listed below. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. In GameSpot's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare review, Kallie Plagge writes, "Modern Warfare makes old observations and presents them with new flourishes. Those new flourishes do make for a good campaign and solid multiplayer. But it's when Modern Warfare asks you to think harder that it falls short."

Where Is Xur Today? Destiny 2’s Exotic Weapon And Armor Location (December 6-10)

Season of the Undying in Destiny 2 ends next week, and that means this weekend's visit from Exotic vendor Xur is the last before the start of the Season of Dawn on December 10. We're seeing some big changes coming to Destiny 2 next season, particularly in how Exotic Engrams work. In the meantime, though, Xur has a few Exotics from Year Two that you might be missing, including Black Talon, which is one that rarely (if ever) has appeared in his bag before.

Xur Location

Head to Titan to locate Xur this week. You'll want to land at the transmat zone on The Rig, then head north under the scaffolding with the edge of the platform on your left. Look for a small, low building toward the north end of the area; you'll find Xur chilling in the dark room within.

Look for Xur in an out-of-the-way building on The Rig on Titan.

What Is Xur Selling?

The weapon Xur is offering this week is Black Talon, a spiffy sword that doesn't just force you to attack enemies at melee range--it can also fire deadly bolts. It's a Year Two Exotic, and in fact, Xur has a few of those this week, making this a good time to fill out your collection if you're lagging behind on some Exotics that came with the Forsaken expansion and the seasons that followed.

If Xur's wares aren't compelling, you can always roll the dice on the expensive Fated Engram he brings with you. This gives you a single Exotic from the limited pool of ones you haven't already earned, for the price of 97 Legendary shards. If there's something you're missing from your collection, it's a good deal, but be sure to purchase it on the character who's missing the Exotic, and note that you can only get one per week, so choose wisely which of your characters makes the buy. If you're a PC or Xbox One player taking advantage of cross-save, you can now potentially get Wavesplitter from the Fated Engram as well.

Xur Item Lineup (December 6-10)

  • Black Talon (Exotic sword)
  • Lunafaction Boots (Exotic Warlock leg armor)
  • Womrhusk Crown (Exotic Hunter helmet)
  • Stronghold (Exotic Titan gauntlets)

Black Talon

Black Talon is a sword that offers both high melee damage and a deadly ranged attack.

This might be the first time Xur has had the Year Two Exotic sword Black Talon available, and if you like blades, this is a handy one to have in your collection. In addition to being a formidable Power weapon up close, Black Talon offers some ranged capabilities as well--it can fire off deadly bolts that seek targets, which makes it great in both PvE and the Crucible.

Lunafaction Boots (Warlock)

Lunafaction Boots are a perfect pairing with the Warlock Well of Radiance Super.
Lunafaction Boots are a perfect pairing with the Warlock Well of Radiance Super.

A mainstay of a lot of Warlock builds, Lunafaction boots are great for supporting a team in major battles, such as those in raids. The boots strengthen your Warlock Rifts for anyone who stands in them, increasing reload speeds significantly. If you use Empowering Rifts, Lunafaction boots also boost everyone's weapon ranges.

Stats:

  • Mobility: 6
  • Resilience: 13
  • Recovery: 7
  • Discipline: 6
  • Intellect: 6
  • Strength: 10
  • Total: 48

Wormhusk Crown (Hunter)

Dodge, duck, dip, dive, and dodge with Wormhusk Crown, and you'll get some health back.
Dodge, duck, dip, dive, and dodge with Wormhusk Crown, and you'll get some health back.

Another useful Year Two Exotic, Wormhusk Crown is great for Hunters who do a lot of dodging. Every time you execute a dodge, Wormhusk Crown gives you a small amount of health back and bumps your shields, as well. Pair it with some Paragon mods and you can get yourself out of a lot of sticky situations with a dodge.

Stats:

  • Mobility: 7
  • Resilience: 2
  • Recovery: 17
  • Discipline: 6
  • Intellect: 6
  • Strength: 12
  • Total: 50

Stronghold (Titan)

Stronghold makes your sword guards extremely effective, which makes it a great get with Black Talon this week.

If you're keen on grabbing Black Talon this week, Stronghold is also a good get for your collection. This sword-specific Titan armor makes your sword guards much better--they increase your movement speed and no longer drain ammo, and if you time them right for just as a shot hits your block, Stronghold heals you, as well. That pretty much means you can use swords to block indefinitely, allowing you to close gaps on enemies to more easily take them down.

Stats:

  • Mobility: 6
  • Resilience: 14
  • Recovery: 6
  • Discipline: 12
  • Intellect: 2
  • Strength: 12
  • Total: 52
