Call of Duty: WWII Supply Drop Rewards Will Be Purely Cosmetic According to Developer
The upcoming Call of Duty: WWII is gaining a lot of attention from fans, giving the impression of a dark, gritty story featuring some of the most famous offensives of WWII. When it comes to the game’s multiplayer, Sledgehammer Games is shaking things up by throwing the action back to the early days of Call of Duty with a few modern twists such as the new Divisions system. That’s not the only thing coming however – new details have come to light concerning the game’s supply drop rewards by way of an AMA in which studio head and co-founder of Sledgehammer, Michael Condrey, took part.
It was explained during the AMA that all weapon and gear variants dropped from supply drops will have no stat-based differences. The question then becomes, what exactly will the cosmetic only rewards entail? With Call Of Duty: WWII being historically grounded, chances are there won’t be any of the vibrant gaudy skins or crazy weapons. Fans can expect to see some interesting skins similar to the likes of Battlefield 1 loot boxes, being more muted colors suited for war in the early 40’s. Maybe some of the new and experimental technology for the time, just don’t expect them to have an effect in game aside from visual differences.
Yes. All weapon variants and gear variants in Call of Duty: WWII supply drops are cosmetic only, so there are no stat-based variants in play. We’re also offering players Collections and Collection Bounties, giving a direct path for our community to earn items through all modes of MP and Headquarters play.”
Condrey also gave some details concerning player collections which touched on the ability for fans to earn items through play within the Headquarters and multiplayer. What those items are however was not mentioned, but they can be earned through various bounties, similar to the challenge rewards from the Battlefield series.
War torn environments, brutal combat, and cosmetics – what else can we expect from the gritty shooter? The title is looking promising so far with going back to their roots, more details continue to come to light as the release draws near on November 3rd.
