Patch 1.08 for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered went live today and along with the usual bug fixes and tweaks, the update has added over 170 new items according to PlayStation Lifestyle.

“Today, we’re excited to support Modern Warfare Remastered with more content, and introduce even more customization items into Modern Warfare Remastered,” reads an Activision blog post.

“Personalization continues to be enjoyed by the community, and we’ve all seen how much players enjoy building the gameplay experience that they want, which is something that wasn’t really possible during the original release. So we are stoked to deliver to fans plenty of options to customize, personalize and continue the fun with these new items.”

Editorial Manager, Kevin Kelly, went on to address gameplay balance and weapons, and announced the addition of “three modern era guns the Kamchatka-12 (automatic shotgun), XM-LAR (assault rifle) and .44 Magnum (pistol).

“Like every other weapon, they each have strengths and weaknesses to ensure proper game balance, and through extensive testing we know players will have a blast.

“As a studio, the balance remains our #1 priority. And just like many of the new items we’ve brought in, you can obtain them by completing a collection of items you acquire with your Parts, or through Supply Drops.”

Here are some of the new doodads that have been added with today’s patch:
