- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 Reloaded update brings new Rio map and game modes: Team Gunfight, Headquarters, and Infected.
- Rio is a medium-sized 6v6 map set in a shopping center in Brazil, with an indoor mall as the central area and surrounding spaces.
- Team Gunfight, Headquarters, and Infected game modes offer unique gameplay experiences and add variety to Modern Warfare 3.
The Season 1 Reloaded update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will add the new Rio 6v6 map and various new game modes, including Team Gunfight. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 players can also expect playlist updates in the remainder of Season 1.
Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 began on December 6 with a limited-time CODMAS event, new maps, and more game modes for fans to enjoy during the holiday season. The game experienced some technical issues in Zombies after the first season began, but CODMAS was still well received by many Call of Duty fans. As the season approached its halfway point, speculation ramped up about the mid-season update for Modern Warfare 3. Additionally, Modern Warfare 3 leaks suggested that various new game modes would be added in the Reloaded update.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Makes Significant Changes to Quick Play and Weapon Animations
A new quality-of-life update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 brings changes to Quick Play and weapon animations in certain playlists.
The Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 Reloaded update launches on January 17 with the new Rio map and three new game modes: Team Gunfight, Headquarters, and Infected. Rio is a new medium-sized 6v6 map that takes place in a shopping center in Brazil. An indoor mall is prominently situated in the middle of the map, with a plaza, tram station, market, and residential spaces surrounding it. According to Sledgehammer Games, the mall itself rises toward its center, which means players may defend the high ground with a “king of the hill approach.”
New Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Map and Game Modes
- New Rio 6v6 map
- New game modes:
- Team Gunfight
Team Gunfight is a 6v6 version of Modern Warfare 3’s Gunfight mode with the same rule set. All Team Gunfight players will spawn with the same randomized loadout at the start of the match, and the loadout will change over time until the match ends. Moreover, Headquarters will be added on day one of Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 Reloaded. In Headquarters, players must secure an objective and hold it for as long as possible with limited respawns, and the objective will periodically rotate around the map.
Alongside the debut of Team Gunfight, Modern Warfare 2’s Infected game mode will return in Modern Warfare 3 with the Season 1 Reloaded update. The Infected game mode starts with one player being Infected, with opposing players aiming to survive until the end of the match. The chances of survival greatly diminish as more players become Infected in a match.
Patch notes for the Season 1 Reloaded update will be released prior to its release on January 17, so players can expect more details about new content arriving soon. Sledgehammer Games will continue to release playlist updates on Thursdays as well. Fans won’t have to wait much longer for Season 2, since Modern Warfare 3 leaks suggest the next season will begin in early February with new weapons.
