Warzone 1.69 Patch Notes (New Map, Weapons, & Operators)
New Map: Fortune’s Keep
Fortune’s Keep map is a luxurious and timeless island, where the amount of danger and action is second only to its riches. It is roughly the same size as Rebirth Island and features four distinct points of interest:
An old fortress sits in the town’s center, inviting Operators in for intense combat with its bell tower that commands this section of the map. Other notable sections include a coastal path with a gazebo, and a Graveyard that seems to have been grave-robbed multiple times over.
Smuggler’s Cove is loaded with supplies, including Gas Masks that could be helpful in case of a Circle Collapse. Be prepared to explore the twisting Sea Caves, Grottos that see sunlight shine through massive holes in the earth, a small collection of fishing huts, and a lighthouse.
The Keep is a medieval fortress now converted into the mercenary’s headquarters and hideout.
A laidback complex inspired by traditional three-lane maps, the Winery serves up plenty of scavenging opportunities and intrigue. Head to the Cellar to stock up on supplies, or travel over to the nearby Camp that contains a helipad and multiple military tents.
4 New Weapons in COD Modern Warfare 1.59
Marco 5 SMG (Launch)
A high mobility submachine gun, accurate from the hip with excellent close-range stopping power.
UGM-8 LMG (Launch)
High fire rate, mobile LMG that excels at creating suppressing fire and pushing enemy positions.
Push Dagger (Launch Window)
A blade with a T-shaped grip that allows for increased push power. Easily concealable and deadly in CQC. Operators can unlock it either through a bundle to be made available during Season Four, or by completing one of two challenges:
In Multiplayer, get 5 Melee Kills with a Primary Weapon in a Single Match 15 times.(Hint: use the Bayonet attachment on a primary weapon for better lunge, or the Fast Melee Perk for quicker maneuvers)
In Zombies, get 100 kills with a Melee weapon while shrouded by your Aether Shroud.(Hint: the new Shi No Numa experience, with interiors that could trap you with the undead often, can be a great way to get kills).
This workhorse Assault Rifle offers a high-fire rate, steady aim through sustained fire, and a quick reload, and that’s before adding any of its Gunsmith attachments.
