The April 28 update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare brought about a lot of changes, to both Modern Warfare Multiplayer and Warzone. One of the more interesting bits from the official patch notes is the introduction of a new contract in Warzone. I’m talking about, of course, the “Most Wanted Contract.” So what is the Most Wanted Contract, and what does it do? That’s a good question.
The Most Wanted Contract raises the stakes in Warzone for individual players and their squad, but it comes at a cost. If you pick up a Most Wanted Contract, you will “make yourself a Bounty Target for all teams in Verdansk.” In other words, you’ll be highlighted for everyone else playing that specific match. If you survive the time limit, you’ll earn a free redeployment for all of your fallen teammates.
So, when does taking the Most Wanted Contract make sense?
Well, considering the reward is limited to only those who have fallen, not those that will fall later on, the contract is only really ideal for those that remain as the lone survivor. If you’re playing quads and have lost two members than it might make sense, but you’re also going to be hunted but every player left on the map, and it won’t be easy. If you succeed in surviving the time limit, though, you’ll be a hero to your fallen squad members, and it beats the hell out of paying up $13,500 in in-game currency to revive them.
For now, EA has confirmed that the Most Wanted Contract will be available in Solos, Trios, Plunder Trios, and Quads starting this week with no sign of it being removed at this time. We don’t know how frequently it will show up, though, so it could happen in every match or it could happen randomly.
If you haven’t had the chance to update Modern Warfare yet, you might want to do it at least an hour before you intend to play as the download size in 15GB for both Xbox and PS4 players.
