This is what you need to know about the Call of Duty: WWII maps, all the Call of Duty: WWII weapons and other last-minute details that are leaking out. There are some spoilers here for the multiplayer, but not for the campaign. The only multiplayer spoilers are the list of weapons and map names and descriptions.
The Call of Duty: WWII release date is Friday November 3rd with many midnight events, but some players are already able to download the day one patch and play if they managed to get their copy delivered early. Here’s how to fix any Call of Duty: WWII problems you run into when you start playing.
Enjoy these last-minute Call of Duty: WWII details that will give you a slight edge when it comes time to play on Friday. You should also make sure you lock in that free Call of Duty: WWII 2XP to level up faster.
Call of Duty: WWII Maps
There are nine Call of Duty: WWII maps that you get with the game. If you buy the Call of Duty: WWII season pass you get a 10th map. While there were more maps leaked in the beta, we only see these nine in the final game.
- Ardennes Forest
- Flak Tower
- Gustav Cannon
- London Docks
- Pointe Du Hoc
- USS Texas
If you buy the Season Pass, which includes four map packs that each should add in 4 more maps you also get the Carentan map at launch. The season pass is $49.99 and it is currently the only way to get this map. Here’s more on the Call of Duty: WWII Season Pass.
Call of Duty: WWII War Mode
The major new Call of Duty: WWII mode is War Mode. This is a mission driven multiplayer experience where you will need to complete objectives against a team who is trying to stop you. The game ships with three specific War Modes.
- Operation Breakout
- Operation Griffin
- Operation Neptune
The final one on this list is Operation Neptune, which is where you will storm Omaha Beach on D-Day. The good news if you enjoy this gameplay is that we will see new War Mode DLC included in the map packs that are coming in 2018. We don’t know exactly how many new modes we will see, but there will be updates.
Call of Duty: WWII Weapons List
We were able to go hands on with the Call of Duty: WWII weapons in the beta, and now we know the final list that will make the cut when the game arrives. We could see Call of Duty: WWII weapons added with updates as part of Supply Drops down the line. Charlie Intel shares this list from a user who got the game early. You won’t find images of these weapons yet, since Sledgehammer Games is issuing take downs when the images or videos appear online.
- M1 Garand
- STG 44
- FG 42
- Type 100
- Waffe 28
- MP 40
- MG 15
- MG 42
- Model 38M
- Lee Enfield
- KAR 98K
Charlie Intel did not have the full list of Call of Duty: WWII shotguns, because the early images are not in English, but we should know these soon. We know there are Supply Drops in this game, so we will likely see some variants. Micheal Condrey of Sledgehammer Games shared details on a Reddit AMA earlier this year saying, “Yes. All weapon variants and gear variants in Call of Duty: WWII supply drops are cosmetic only, so there are no stat-based variants in play. We’re also offering players Collections and Collection Bounties, giving a direct path for our community to earn items through all modes of MP and Headquarters play.”
It’s important to note that this doesn’t rule out the addition of new weapons, it simply says variants will not have better stats than the base models.
Hardcore Call of Duty: WWII Multiplayer Game Modes
We were able to see a lot of the multiplayer modes in the beta, but we finally know the Call of Duty: WWII Hardcore gameplay modes thanks to a German language screenshot. They are listed below, based on a translation from Reddit.
- Search & Destroy
- Kill Confirmed
- Free for all
This is good news for gamers who enjoy this mode and typically need to settle for small playlist options. We don’t yet know how the Call of Duty: WWII DLC maps will make it into this setting, but you will be able to play Hardcore War.
Call of Duty: WWII Bots Confirmed
If you want to practice your game without impacting your online K/D ratio and rankings, or just explore the maps offline with some enemies to take out, you can play with bots. Reddit user GarandLover shares a screenshot showing off the option to use bots in Call of Duty: WWII.
We know that you can choose up to 12 bots and you can use them in War Mode, which will allow you to get an edge on the competition by learning the maps with easy opponents that allow you to explore more or simply learn how the map plays. You can ramp up the bot difficulty as you get better.
Buy if Call of Duty: WWII is Still Your Go to Game
This is still the go to boots on the ground version of Call of Duty, and even with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on the way it makes sense to buy the Season Pass if you will play Call of Duty: WWII for most of 2018 and into 2019.
If you think you will buy all of the maps because you loved the first 8 months of Call of Duty: WWII or because you like the direction the game is going with each update, you should buy the Season Pass.
For gamers who are planning to play Call of Duty: WWII for a year, it doesn't make sense to wait and buy the DLC separately or even to skip one or two of them since that will limit the matchmaking as you get split into a smaller and smaller pool.
You save $10 over buying the DLC individually, you get a bonus and you may still need to wait a long time for a deal.
