Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare/Warzone May 18 Patch Notes Include New Maps, Weapon Balance Changes, And More – GameSpot

Published

on


The latest patch for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and the battle royale game Warzone is out now (or coming very soon!) bringing with it new maps and a series of changes. The update dropped on PS4, Xbox One, and PC at 11 PM PT, so if you don’t have it already, it’ll be here soon.

Ahead of that, Infinity Ward has posted the full patch notes, which you can see below.

The biggest new additions in the update include a new Gunfight map for Modern Warfare called Aisle 9, and a new Modern Warfare multiplayer map called Hardhat. Coinciding with the release of the new maps, Modern Warfare is getting a special 24/7 playlist for Hardhat and a Face Off Moshpit playlist for Aisle 9.

Additionally, a new DLC pack, “Fearless”, is available for the Call of Duty Endowment charity, with all proceeds going towards helping veterans find work. Spec Ops also gets a new mode with “Modified” missions that include special variants like headshots-only and more.

The Warzone battle royale mode adds a number of new features with this update, including an Armor Box that players can find as loot or purchase through Buy Stations. This box resupplies your entire team’s armor, so it could prove to be very useful on the battlefield. Additionally, Most Wanted contracts have returned, while there are now more Gulag loadouts including six different assault rifles and four SMGs.

The May 18 update also fixes a number of bugs, including exploits that could allow players to access points outside of the map. A rare bug in Warzone that traps players in the Gulag for the entire match has also been fixed with this update.

There are some weapon balance changes, too. The FAL and SCAR weapons now have decreased aim-down-sight times, while the penalty for holding your breath too long while using a sniper rifle has been reduced. The VLK Rogue sees its rate of fire increased, while the Holger 26’s recoil has been reduced.

You can see the complete patch notes below, as posted by Infinity Ward.

The dual-card 5G is on the network and can seamlessly switch signals at any time to a better 5G network. This is possible because of the optimization of the MediaTek Dimensity 820 SoC.

The Redmi 10X is the first smartphone to use the Dimensity 820 SoC. This chip not only supports 5G + 5G dual card dual standby, SA, NSA dual-mode 5G but also supports 5G dual-carrier aggregation.

Furthermore, this chip integrates a top-notch 5G modem with a flagship multi-core CPU architecture as well as an energy-efficient independent AI processor (APU 3.0). According to Lu Weibing, general manager of the Redmi brand, the Dimensity 820 SoC may be the most powerful 5G mid- to high-end processor in 2020.

Going back to the Redmi 10X, this smartphone comes with a built-in 4520mAh battery. While the regular model supports up to 22.5W fast charging, the Pro model supports 33W fast flash charging.

Huawei may have to stop using its Kirin chips due to US restrictions – MobileSyrup

Published

on


Huawei might have to stop building its own Kirin chipsets due to the licensing restrictions put it in place by the U.S. Department of Commerce. The restrictions put in place prevent U.S. software and technology to be implemented in its chips.

And Huawei uses Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, a fabrication plant in Arizona, to help assemble its chipsets. Thus, because of the restrictions, TSMC has now stopped taking orders from Huawei, according to the report.

Due to this, Huawei and its sub-brand Honor are now considering working with companies like MediaTek and UNISOC in anticipation of not being to use its own chips. This latest news comes from CNMO and Nikkei 

Additionally, Huawei is already reported to be in talks with the two companies, which Zhao Ming, Honor’s president of business, mentioned in a previous interview.

Huawei already uses MediaTek in some of its mid-range devices; therefore, it’s quite possible that MediaTek might develop the chips for high-range smartphones.
