Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered continues to expand with new content, breathing new life into a ten year old game.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered may have been released as a sort of glorified collector’s edition add-on, but the support from Raven Software is more what you’d expect from a standalone new release.

The latest update, patch 1.08, adds a stack of new Depot content to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, including four new weapon kits. Each will be available via collection bounties, so you’ll need to gather or craft all the matching items to unlock the new gear.

  • Huntsman
    This Sniper Class Weapon Kit gives your sniper rifles the field-ready look of a working class weapon. For example, your sniper rifle can look camouflaged like a ghillie suit or covered in duct tape.
  • Lawman
    Bring a bit of the Old West to Modern Warfare with this Shotgun Class Weapon Kit. You’ll feel like a gunslinger when your shotguns have the look and feel of high-class weapons from Western Americana, complete with filigreed details and wood stocks.
  • Battle-scarred
    If you like to get up close and personal, then the SMG is probably one of your workhorse weapons. The Battle-Scarred Weapon Kit will make your weapons look like they have been through many a firefight, scars and all.
  • Czar
    The Czar Weapon Kit provides the look of pure gold to your LMGs, putting the bling in your loadout and onto the field of battle. These golden guns are over the top, flashy, and deadly as ever.

There are also three new weapon collection bounties, and Raven has asked Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered to provide feedback on how they fit into the sandbox; it doesn’t want to upset a decade-old balance too much.

  • Kamchatka-12
    This is a fully-automatic, 12-gauge shotgun of Russian origin, and features an 8-round detachable box magazine.
  • XM-LAR
    This fully automatic assault rifle comes from the European theater, and utilizes 7.62x51mm NATO cartridges in a 30-round detachable box.
  • .44 Magnum
    This is the classic .44 Magnum six-round revolver, featuring a stylized military grip and signature long barrel.

Raven has also added two new melee weapons to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. Gladiator is a sword based on the Roman legionary’s standard-issue gladius blade, while the Hatchetman is a military axe.

The bulk of the update is customisation, so you’ll also find four new weapon camo sets with 39 new weapon camos total, 31 new calling card options, 39 new emblems, and 39 new reticles in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered once you’ve grabbed the patch.
