December Call of Duty: WWII Update 1.07: What’s New

There is a new Call of Duty: WWII update coming this week and it is the first December Call of Duty: WWII patch with a number of key fixes. It also times up with the Winter Siege special event that includes free Call of Duty: WWII supply drops.

Yes, this is the update that brings you new Call of Duty: WWII guns and weapons, and you can even unlock them outside of Supply Drops.

This new update comes with changes to Ranked Play, which launched last week. Sledgehammer Game’s wording leaves it up in the air, so you may see the Ranked Play changes before the Call of Duty: WWII update arrives on PS4, Xbox One and the PC update that is coming later this week.

Here’s what’s new in the December Call of Duty: WWII update that we expect will come with the 1.07 name. The Winter Siege events will come with a snowy Headquarters as well as a special Double XP playlists through January 2nd. There is still no word on when we will see a Call of Duty: WWII Hardcore Kill Confirmed playlist, which many players including myself desperately want added to the game.

We expect the PS4 and Xbox One Call of Duty: WWII 1.07 update around 1 PM Eastern, 10 AM Pacific and the PC version is slated to arrive on December 8th around 10 AM Pacific that will include some specific to Steam and reddit feedback on PC, and it will also turn on Ranked Play on PC.

New Call of Duty: WWII Guns

The new Quartermaster Captain Butcher brings new uniforms and weapons to the game as part of this update and the Winter Siege event. Here are the five new guns and weapons;

  • GPMG LMG
  • Sten SMG
  • Gewehr 43 Assault Rifle
  • Trench Knife
  • Ice Pick

You can unlock these through orders that will rotate daily. When you complete an order you can unlock one of these weapons. They don’t offer different stats, but like other variants you can get 2XP bonuses while using them. You’ll also see some new weapons come through collection bounties. You can get the new guns in Winter Supply Drops and you get at least one free drop each week.

Call of Duty: WWII Season Pass: 3 Reasons to Buy & 3 to Wait

Buy If You're Going to Play Call of Duty: WWII for a Year or More

Buy If You're Going to Play Call of Duty: WWII for a Year or More

Is Call of Duty: WWII your game? Are you psyched about going back to boots on the ground combat? For many people this is the game they will return to over and over throughout the next year, and maybe even longer. 

If you think you will buy all of the maps because you loved the first month 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. 

We're seeing a new Call of Duty, or rather a return to a more classic Call of Duty game and while things could change with updates, if you are hooked on this game, buy the Season Pass now. 

You save $10 over buying the DLC individually, you get a bonus and you may need to wait a long time for a deal.
