Modern Warfare: No supply drops EVER, post launch content earnable through gameplay, and more.

Today, the Call of Duty community exploded when news dropped that post launch content, mainly weapons will be earned through Gameplay. Artistic lead of Infinity Ward Joel Emsile stated about a week ago that this would be the case and that Infinity Ward was "not working on a lootbox/supply drop system". Everyone was skeptical but hopeful and cautiously optimistic, it seems we now have confirmation that Joel was telling the truth. It appears that post-launch weapons will be achieved through gameplay and playing the game, not through an RNG slot machine mechanic. Activision has come out to say that there will NEVER be supply drops in Modern Warfare. It would appear that Activision is now taking a new more consumer-friendly approach to MTX.

Taken directly from the activision blog post:
Today, let’s address the basics for the in-game economy coming in Modern Warfare.

  • We are introducing a new Battle Pass system, not a loot box system.
  • All functional content that has an impact on game balance, such as base weapons and attachments, can be unlocked simply by playing the game.
  • The new Battle Pass system will allow players to see the content that they are earning or buying. Battle Passes will launch timed to new, post-launch live seasons, so you can unlock cool new Modern Warfare-themed content that matches each season.
  • With the new Battle Pass system, players will be able to earn COD Points by playing the game.
  • There will be both a Free Stream and a Premium Stream of content in the Battle Pass System in Modern Warfare. New base weapons will be earned through gameplay, simply by playing Modern Warfare. Functional attachments for base weapons can be unlocked through gameplay as well just like in the game’s Beta.
  • The Battle Pass and the In-Game Store will feature a variety of cosmetic content that does not impact game balance.

The Battle Pass System for Modern Warfare will not launch when the game releases on October 25th. Here’s why: First and foremost, we are all focused on making the Day One experience awesome. Second, it’s important to us that everyone who is playing Modern Warfare has the chance to work their way through the new game and unlock all the rewards that are waiting for you. We expect to launch this system for Modern Warfare later this year. .

Loot boxes and RNG practices for MTX have been in Call of Duty since 2014 with the release of Advanced Warfare. After so many years, it seems Activision is finally listening to the community's complaints. Only time will tell if this will be a supply drop-free future for Call of Duty, one thing is for sure, this is big & great news for Call of Duty fans, and it's a great step in the right direction, starting with Modern Warfare.
