Season 4 has finally landed after being delayed out of respect for recent social issues.

The patch comes in at around 32gb to 44gb depending on platform. However according to Activision after some cleanup and compression of assets it should only take an additional 4 gb for the season 4 content. For console players Activision says “… you can uninstall the content packs for modes that you’re not playing if you want to free up space.”

Season 4 initially includes 3 new maps, 2 new weapons, and 1 new operator. We finally get to play as Captain Price! The new weapons include the Fennec (Kriss Vector) and the CR-56 AMAX (IMI Galil). Mid season we will see additional operators a new sniper rifle and a new multiplayer map. For those obsessive completionist among us there is the new Weapon mastery challenges.

Once you’ve unlocked Gold for a weapon, Mastery Challenges become available. There’s 8 Challenges per weapon, each granting their own rewards, with 4 Playercards and 4 Emblems up for grabs. You’ll need to make your way through 2 Kill Challenges, 2 Headshot Challenges, and 4 additional Challenges that must be done in order (Gold, Platinum, Damascus, Obsidian). Completing all challenges for 51 weapons unlocks a badass special Sticker and Playercard!

DOWNLOAD SIZE

The Season 4 download is going to be large. In order to reduce the overall disc space that MW and WZ take up, we’re compressing a bunch of assets. Once installed, the S4 launch will only take up an additional 4GB on consoles for all of the new content.

We’re continuing to sweep all assets to make size reductions where we can, and also further optimize future patches for size. If helpful, one reminder for console players, you can uninstall the content packs for modes that you’re not playing if you want to free up space.
