New Weapons, Modes and Supply Drops in Winter Siege Event for CoD WWII

During the Winter Siege event, all players will have access to Winter Carentan, a snow-covered winter themed version of the fan-favorite Carentan map, previously only available as reimagined Carentan to Season Pass owners.

Call of Duty: WWII has been a journey of inspiration and passion for everyone at Sledgehammer Games.

Posting on the official website earlier today, Sledgehammer Games announced that the first seasonal event of the new installment is all about celebrating with the passionate community.

Call of Duty: WWII is about to experience its first community-based event ever, and there's new content coming with it as well.

In addition to that, it was also revealed that Gun Game would be making its return, and, if you choose to play it during the third week of December, you'll be able to earn double XP.

The event also brings a new look for Headquarters. Gun Game challenges players to get a kill with each weapon in a round, which can be a challenge if you're not used to playing with all the various arms. Headquarters will also get some special sprucing up, with additional new Supply Drops with appropriate winter wear as well as a temporary quartermaster. The character will give players the opportunity to earn Winter Siege Division Uniforms, Cosmetic Items, and different weapon variants.

The Call of Duty WW2 Winter Siege festivities promise to keep you busy for the entire month with a ton of surprises when it arrives later this week. Other rarity variants of these weapons are available through Collection Bounties, or in Winter Siege Supply Drops. Players will receive one of these for free each week. Players can also purchase Winter Siege Supply Drops using Call of Duty Points in-game currency.
