COD: WWII's Operation: Shamrock & Awe Community Event Has Begun
Seems that the folks over at Sledgehammer Games have been a bit busy. Operation: Shamrock & Awe, Call of Duty: WWII’s St. Patrick’s Day-themed community event, is now live From now until April 3, Call of Duty: WWII gets a St. Paddy’s Day makeover, with a new limited-time Multiplayer playlist, two time-limited gear collections and special Orders and Contracts that yield special items and weapons.
Here is what you can expect:
- Shipment 1944, a re-imagining of the classic close-quarters Multiplayer map, is free and available in Call of Duty: WWII in early access for Season Pass owners starting today. The map is free and available to all on Friday, March 16.
Leprechaun Hunt Moshpit
- The Leprechaun Hunt Moshpit delivers Team Deathmatch, Hardpoint, Kill Confirmed and Domination modes with a twist: a fleet-footed zombie leprechaun hidden in each map. Players who eliminate the terrifying little sprite are rewarded with something better than a pot o’ gold – all of their equipped Scorestreaks full and ready to deploy.
This mode will be available for players as a Featured Public Match playlist during Operation: Shamrock & Awe, offering 2XP from 10:00 am Pacific on March 16 to 10:00 am Pacific on March 19.
New Weapons and Gear
- Players will find all-new St. Patrick’s Day-themed gear, including uniforms, helmets, weapon camos and more, only available during Operation: Shamrock & Awe.
- As well as new gear, Operation: Shamrock & Awe delivers two all-new weapons to Call of Duty: WWII – the M-38 Submachine Gun and the MG 81 Light Machine Gun. Both weapons have St. Paddy’s Day-themed variants, available only during Operation: Shamrock & Awe, though other variants of both weapons will continue to be available in the game once the community event concludes.
