There are more reasons than ever to play Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare this December. After a month we’ve seen major updates to the game and the Infinite Warfare DLC is coming fast in 2017, but while you wait there are huge bonuses that allow you to get new weapons, play on new Christmas themed maps and earn extra salvage.
Starting today you can get a new Epic weapon free in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare if you’ve also played Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and that is just the start.
Here’s a look at what is coming to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare in December as part of the 12 days of Winter promo and what is already available for you starting today.
Free Epic Infinite Warfare Weapon
If you’ve played the current and the last Call of Duty games you get a free Epic Infinite Warfare weapon to use. The Hailstorm – Thunder is unlocked in the QuarterMaster and also in Create a Class. This is a three round burst pistol that includes two perks.
- Whirlwind – fast cycling auto burst that increases recoil
- Focus – reduces idle sway while aiming down the sights
You can equip this weapon today and start using it in the game. You need to have played Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 with an Internet connection and be playing Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare now online to get this bonus.
Holiday Infinite Warfare Map
A special new Genesis Holiday map is is coming to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare later this month. The Genesis map gets a night-time mode that is set up for the holidays with decorations. Get ready for a darker theme as the sun sets and Christmas looms.
Activision confirms that this will be in the normal rotation as well as a 24/7 Genesis Holiday playlist that is, “ready to spread cheer, goodwill and high KDRs.
12 Days of Winter Infinite Warfare Bonus
This is just the start of the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare 12 Days of Christmas bonus items. You will also get gifts by logging in to play Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare in December. Starting on December 21st and running through January 1st there will be a special gift that arrives as a log-in bonus.
This will include Salvage and Key bonuses, winter themed common, Rare and Legendary prototypes and more. There is no mention if Season Pass holders get an extra bonus on top of this.
Activision also teases new Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Double XP events and other special bonuses and announcements this month.
Buy If You Love Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
Do you love Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare? Maybe you realized during the first two weeks that this is the game you will play for the next year. Some people play Battlefield and others play Madden 17, but you are going to play Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and level up as fast as possible to Prestige.
Gamers who already know that this is the game they will dedicate most of their free time to should just go ahead and buy the Season Pass now. This is especially true at this stage, and due to the added log in bonus that you get with a Season Pass.
After spending 90 hours or more playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, I see a similar time investment bringing the value of $1 an hour once I factor in the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Season Pass.
