The main highlight of Modern Warfare update 1.19 is, of course, the Season 3 content which includes a new Operator skin for Alex, three brand-new maps and two new weapons. Both new arenas sound well fit for close-quarters combat, which makes guns like the Renetti and SK5 all the more useful. These firearms fire quickly and have atypical traits from the rest of their weapon class, which should bring a few unique wrinkles to Modern Warfare's ever-evolving meta. Alongside Operators, vehicles can now be customized too, which will likely become another avenue for spending those beloved CoD Points. Oh, and if you've been spamming Decoy Grenades, your secret weapon has been effectively neutralized.

For the vast majority of players, though, the changes now in Warzone are the most important. Thankfully, these largely involve bug fixes like audio adjustments and the removal of annoying screen shake in the Gulag. The most polarizing tweak of all will be a huge increase in the cost for Loadouts in Battle Royale. While fans of the feature will hate the new fee, detractors suggest a price increase should prevent campers from gaining an advantage too early in a given round. There's lots of content to explore in Modern Warfare Season 3, and update 1.19 is just the tip of the iceberg.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The 1.19 update is live now.
