Infinity Ward updated Modern Warfare 3 over the weekend to introduce a few changes to the popular online shooter.

For one, the game now features a ‘Community Playlist’. The playlist will basically feature popular or unique private match modes and add them to rankable public playlist.

“The biggest change you’lll notice is the addition of Community Playlists. This is where we will add popular or unique private match modes to the public playlists, so you can start ranking up on them!,” said the developer.

The first playlist changes to come out of it are the ones below:

Get to the drop zone to earn points, the first team to 7500 points wins the round, but thats not all. As long as the Drop Zone is occupied, a care package will drop every 15 seconds, which ever team has the most members in the drop zone at that point “owns” the care package, but anyone can steal it. This is the only way to earn air support in this mode, all other pointstreaks are disabled. You’ll earn 20 points per team member, for every second they’re in the drop zone plus 20 XP individually for your time spent in the zone. Kills are worth 50 XP in this mode. 

Custom Settings: Pointstreaks (besides those obtained through in-game care packages) are disabled. 

Hardcore HQ Ricochet 
We’ll be adding Hardcore Headquarters to the Hardcore Team Tactical playlist. 

Hardcore Ricochet 
We’ll be converting all Hardcore modes to Ricochet variant as a response to team killing. This means, any friendly fire, is applied to the attacker, rather than the victim. So choose your shots wisely and any attempt to team kill will simply kill yourself.

If you have tried Drop Zone, leave a word about it on our comments section below.
