Infinity Ward pulled a sneaky one last night and threw April Fools' Day's playlist at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players, turning Shipment 24/07 into Shipment 10v10 and more.

Seasoned Call of Duty veterans normally love the map to pieces as it's quick and action-packed. 

Needless to say, 10v10 won't let you think a lot, but it can be a great practice for playing under stress. That is, if you don't mind respawning a lot - which you will no matter how good you are.

If you're not a fan of crowded Shipment, you can go and hit 3v3 Gunfight Knives Only for some hand to hand combat, which should be a significantly more relaxed experience.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's BR Solos have been replaced with BR Stimulus Solos, while the height and radius at which parachuting enemy players are called out is reduced. 

Last but not least is the return of the chopper, which just begs for an Arnold Swarzenegger pun. Ultimately, the addition of April Fools' Day playlist to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was as surprising as it is welcome. 

In their latest earnings call, Activision discussed the relation between Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone. 

Many players feared that a free-to-play CoD would cannibalise the anual premium COD's revenue, but that has not happened this time. In fact, it was quite the contrary, as each MW excursion into Warzone brings back more players.

We even noticed an uptick in physical sales in the UK, right after the MW Multiplayer Access, so it's pretty clear that Warzone isn't a competitor to MW - it's its free-to-play informant. 

In related news, Activision also confirmed that the annual CoD is on track for the second half of the year
