The previous rumors of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare having supply drops or loot boxes have been squashed, with Infinity Ward Art Director Joel Emslie, confirming that IW is not working on any form of system like this for COD: Modern Warfare.


In a recent post on the official Modern Warfare subreddit, Emslie explained: "Sigh. There continues to be misinformed and incorrect info being pushed about Modern Warfare. What I can say right now is that we are definitely NOT working on any kind of supply drop or loot box system. Also, functional stuff is unlocked through GAMEPLAY. Stay tuned, we're planning to release info this week".

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare might not have supply drops or loot boxes, but that doesn't mean there are no microtransactions at all. Infinity Ward confirmed the game will indeed have microtransactions, but they should be limited to just cosmetic items inside of the game. We hope. It's not like Activision-Blizzard needs anymore drama right now... right???

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
