First up is the Hailstorm – Thunder Pistol prototype bonus. This weapon is being handed out to those who have clocked time in both Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

Starting today and continuing through December 31, all players who own either game will receive an epic prototype the pistol, which features a three-round burst. It also comes with two perks: Whirlwind, a fast cycling auto burst that increases recoil, and Focus which reduces idle sway while aiming down sights.

The Genesis Holiday map is also on the way. Later this month, Infinite Warefare players will find the map waiting for them as “the Headquarters for the Division of Mechanical Evolution gets a festive new look.” Plus there will be a 24/7 Genesis Holiday playlist.

Each reward is available for one day only.

The free goodies will be handed out for twelve days, ending on January 1.
