You get a nerf, YOU get a nerf, EVERYBODY gets a nerf! OK, so the M4 and the MP5 got nerfs, but here's what else is new in the latest Call of Duty: Modern Warfare update.

Yet another update has just been pushed live for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and this time it comes bearing a few weapon nerfs, the return of Shipment, and more! Oh, and a few other much-needed balance changes. 

The January 28th Call of Duty: Modern Warfare update includes a Playlist update including the Deathmatch Domination and Gunfight Custom. Shipment 24/7 is also back and says farewell to Winter Docks as it crashes back into the game. 

Though a few weapons like the M4 and the MP5 saw nerfs, the M13 saw a slight buff with its range as well as a few changes to how the Crossbow works in-game. 

For everything new with the January 28 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare update: 

Playlist Update

  • Added Deathmatch Domination!
  • Added Gunfight Custom!
  • Shipment 24/7 is back! (Replaces Shoot the Ship)
  • Removed Winter Docks
  • Moved Capture the Flag into the Quick Play Filter


  • Weapons:
    • MP5: Reduced headshot multiplier, Small reduction to 10mm range
    • M4: Small damage decrease to reduce headshot effectiveness, Small range decrease
    • M13: Range increase, Small reduction to horizontal recoil, Small damage increase to boost headshot effectiveness
    • Crossbow: Players are able to shoot down an enemy Support Helo with only 3 Thermite Bolts. This has been adjusted; 5 to take down a VTOL and 6 to take down a Support Helo and Chopper Gunner
  • Fix for an exploit in Ground War via ATV
  • Fix for missing character model on the LA OpTic CDL skin
  • Shipment: Spawn tuning to reduce the frequency of instant deaths and spawn traps. Adjustments to spawn positions around the edge of the map for all modes. New spawn logic for Domination.
