Last week we’ve written about the changes coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with the new 1.12 update. However, we missed one cool thing designed for the holiday season. The new update also brings some holiday spirit to the game and includes a new Snowball Fight Mode.
Here it is in action:
The new mode is a slight alteration of Gunfight and is played in the new Winter Docks map. By playing this mode you’ll be able to pick up snowballs from piles of snow lying around the map and throw them to your enemies. Snowballs is a ‘weapon’ similar to throwing knives.
The mode starts with a warm-up round where all players have no access to real weapons, only snowballs. After this round, the mode continues as a normal Gunfight game, but players can still pick up snow and throw it to their enemies. It gives no real advantage… The only reason to blast your enemy with snow is to earn some style points and show some disrespect to your opponent.
Anyway, it’s a great addition to the game, bringing some casual vibes for a limited time. If you wish to try it out, don’t wait for too long. Rumor has it that the mode will be turned off in January.
