The new St. Patrick’s Day–themed Call of Duty: WWII event may have teased an upcoming retro playlist that before fans were supposed to see it.
When the event first launched, the PC version of the game featured a new playlist called the “Throwback Playlist.” The playlist wasn’t originally announced for the event, but upon trying it out, players found multiplayer modes that featured a variety of classic perks from previous Call of Duty games. The specific perks on offer were Danger Close, Commando Pro, Double Tap, Martyrdom, Stun X3, Stopping Power, and Juggernaut.
Before players could really get into the thick of it, however, the playlist was removed. While it is unfortunate that it wasn’t here to stay, its brief presence could suggest that the mode may drop soon, having simply jumped the gun in the new event.
WWII‘s Operation: Shamrock and Awe event hit the game this week, bringing with it some new—and very green—content. At the forefront of the event is the return of the classic Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare map, Shipment, reimagined for WWII as Shipment 1944. New holiday weapons, outfits, and other bonuses are also live in the game, along with a new mode that has players hunt down a mischievous leprechaun.
The Operation: Shamrock and Awe event will run until April 3rd. Some content will be removed when the event concludes, but other content, such as the Shipment 1944 map and the new weapons, will remain in the game.
