Call of Duty Warzone Juggernaut Royale, More Announced in Latest Blog Post
Activision has revealed the latest information regarding new game modes, playlists, limited-time events, and more that are happening this week around the Call of Duty universe. Among them, perhaps the most important one is the brand new Warzone Juggernaut Royale mode.
Latest Call of Duty Announcements Post Released
The latest weekly blog post has been released by Activision that goes over everything that is happening this week in all of the main Call of Duty games. From consoles and PC to mobile, a lot is happening this week, a little bit more so than the last couple of weeks that have been rather lame.
If you are a Call of Duty Warzone, Modern Warfare, League, Mobile, or even Black Ops 4 fan, you will be happy to know that there is something this week for you to check out. Not everything is brand new, but even the returning limited-time content is rather welcome and beloved by the community.
As seasons start to near the end in both Modern Warfare and Call of Duty Mobile, Activision makes sure that players still have a good bit of content to enjoy in both of them. So, if you still have battle pass tiers and items to unlock in those seasons, you should be able to do so this week while enjoying some of the fun temporary content available.
Call of Duty Warzone Juggernaut Royale Revealed
Of all the new things coming out this week, the most interesting of them is the new Call of Duty Warzone Juggernaut Royale game mode. This new mode is the latest addition to the Warzone arsenal that is a twist on the standard battle royale match type that players know and love.
We have had limited time twists on battle royale in the past for Warzone, but this latest one will be one of the most challenging ones yet. If you couldn’t tell by the name, the Call of Duty Warzone Juggernaut Royale mode will have a large focus on the controversial and overpowered Juggernaut suit.
Similar to some other Juggernaut-heavy game modes that we had in previous weeks, the Call of Duty Warzone Juggernaut Royale mode will focus on the suit being available for the first time in a battle royale match. For those who aren’t familiar with this piece of armor, we’ve got you covered.
The Juggernaut suit is a massive one that protects the user from an insane amount of damage while typically also arming them with some machine gun weapons with which to decimate the enemies that are unlucky enough to come across them.
The Juggernaut suit is a beloved piece of Modern Warfare history, so it is nice to see it come to Warzone, interconnected with the rebooted Modern Warfare 2019 game. The Juggernaut armor will be available in this version of the battle royale experience.
This weekend, players will be able to hop into a version of squads battle royale where a single Juggernaut suit will appear on the map. Everyone in the match — yes, all 150 or so players — will have the ability to see this suit when it first shows up.
So, if you want to get it for yourself, you will have to get there first before the other well over 100 players do, but you will need to fight and fend them off so that you or one of your teammates can to nab it for themselves.
We fully expect the Call of Duty Warzone Juggernaut Royale game mode to be wild with potentially hundreds of players convening in a single location for the first time just to have a chance at getting the juggernaut armor for themselves.
But if you are unable to get the suit, we recommend watching out as this thing packs a punch. You will need everything that you can bring from explosives to LMGs and more to bring it down.
Otherwise, we recommend that you turn tail and run as there will be other players there, too, so the competition will be insane and fierce for sure. You’ll be able to check out the new Call of Duty Warzone Juggernaut Royale mode this weekend.
New Items and Playlists This Week
If the Call of Duty Warzone Juggernaut Royale game mode doesn’t appeal to you or you just play Modern Warfare mainly, you’ll be happy to know that there is more happening this week. In terms of new items for both games, the credit shop will have a new Zane Golden Idol bundle this week.
Taking cues from what Fortnite did in its last season, this bundle is a golden Midas touch-themed set of items that you can pick up. There are a whopping 10 items that include two legendary weapon blueprints for the King’s Highway assault rifle and the High Plains Drifter handgun.
If gold isn’t your aesthetic, perhaps the ghastly glowing Spectrum bundle will be more your style. This bundle available this week will come with the weapon blueprint Ghostly Recollection Rare as well as the Interstellar Dreams calling card and the Worlds Apart animated emblem items.
In terms of playlists for the traditional multiplayer side of Modern Warfare, two main playlists will be making their return this week, and both of them are fan favorites. The first is the Deathmatch Domination playlist that brings together what are likely the two most popular game modes in multiplayer.
Team Deathmatch and Domination come together in an unlikely pairing of the eliminations and objectives-focused game modes. In this special mode, players take out other enemy players and capture objectives at the same time to earn points to win the match.
In the case of Deathmatch Domination, the points required for victory are a lot more than the standard game match, so you will need to capture and defend objectives for your team tactfully and tactfully get those eliminations.
If that isn’t your thing, maybe Drop Zone will be your style. This special game mode returns this week, offering an objectives-focused mode where players need to hold a certain point while defending it from the other team. While you are holding the point, care packages will drop into the area.
These care packages are the only way you can unlock scorestreaks in this game mode, so it certainly pays to hold the objective and get better equipment to keep defending it from the enemy.
New Double XP Weekend Kicks Off
In a surprising reveal, this weekend will not only see the Juggernaut Royale game mode drop, but there will be a double experience weekend again. We haven’t had one of these in several weeks now, so it is a welcome change of pace for this weekend event.
Like standard double XP weekends, this weekend will have double the amount of experience that you will get for normal XP, weapon experience, and even double the battle pass progression rate. So, you will be able to level up your gear, but you will earn battle pass tiers at double the rate of what it normally is.
This double XP weekend is great for those still trying to reach the coveted final tier in the battle pass before the end of the season and unlock all of the rewards. The double XP weekend will begin this Friday, July 31 at 10 a.m. PT and will go through the weekend until Monday, Aug. 3 at 10 a.m. PT.
You will be able to enjoy Deathmatch Domination, Drop Zone, and all of the other content this weekend for Warzone and Modern Warfare while earning double the normal experience. Also, the Shoot House 24/7 and Shipment 24/7 playlists will return this week for fans of those maps.
Besides Juggernaut Royale, the Warzone players will have the playlists of battle royale solos, duos, trios, quads, and Blood Money trios to enjoy for battle royale and Plunder.
Call of Duty Mobile Days of Summer Event Begins
For Call of Duty Mobile fans, there is a new limited-time event that will begin this week on Android and iOS devices. This might seem surprising since there was just another event that we went over last week for the mobile game, but yes, another is happening this week.
This week, the Days of Summer limited-time event will begin in Call of Duty Mobile. As the current season starts to wrap up in time for the new one in August, this summertime event is a perfect chance to finish the battle pass for the season while earning some special summer rewards.
The Days of Summer event begins today, July 28, and will run for a limited time, so players should jump in there as soon as possible to start unlocking rewards. These special rewards include an H20 skin of the Purifier ability that makes this special weapon shoot out water instead of fire.
On July 30, the katana will come to Call of Duty Mobile multiplayer as an Operator skill that you can unlock for free. It is very similar to the Spectre character from Black Ops 4, where the ability will shift things to a third-person view as you can slice and dice enemies with ease. Though this new Operator skill is free, it will only be around for a limited time, so be sure to unlock it while you still can.
Black Ops 4 Playlist Update
Modern Warfare and Warzone aren’t the only games to get double experience this week as Black Ops 4 will continue its double experience event this week. Ending later this week on July 30, players are still able to earn double experience and weapon XP in both multiplayer and Zombies.
The featured playlist for multiplayer is the double experience One in the Chamber game mode, where you only have one ammo at the start. You will need to get kills to get more bullets to keep fighting. This featured game mode will leave the game soon.
Besides the double XP One in the Chamber game mode, the other multiplayer playlists this week will be Nuketown, Barebones Moshpit, Bolt-Action Barebones Moshpit, and Mercenary Deathmatch Moshpit. For Zombies players, they will have Blood of the Dead this week.
On the Blackout battle royale side of things, players have the standard playlists of Hot and Heavy, Alcatraz Portals Quads, normal quads, duos, and solos.
Call of Duty League Concludes Its Normal Season
This week is a momentous occasion for the Call of Duty League as it marked the end of the normal first season of the league. Eight of the 12 teams competed in the Toronto Ultra Home Series Weekend, where they had their final chance to earn some points before the end of the season.
Those points have been distributed. Toronto Ultra came through and won their first Home Series while defending their own at the same time. Other teams like Atlanta FaZe and Dallas Empire did well, too, claiming their first and second place spots.
But though the normal season is over now, the Call of Duty League will continue next month with the playoffs postseason. The playoffs will feature all 12 teams competing again together for the first time since the launch weekend with their initial placements determined by their standings.
They will compete in two brackets, an upper and lower, where the lower means a single loss, and you are out of the tournament. The event will continue until there are only four teams left. They will compete in the championship weekend in August to see who will be the league’s first champion team. Stay tuned for our predictions, breakdowns, and more of the playoffs soon.
