Activision and Sledgehammer Games have announced new details about upcoming content for the Quartermaster and Orders with the Winter Siege event in Call of Duty: WWII.
There will be a new Quartermaster visiting the Headquarters during the event, Captain Butcher -- a former British Special Forces soldier. Captain Butcher will visit the HQ during the event from time to time with all new Winter themed items. He brings new Winter Siege uniforms, cosmetic items, and all new weapon variants. Activision says that all the weapon variants coming to the game in this update only have cosmetic differences. There are no stat based changes other than offering 2XP boosts, similar to how current weapon variants are.
Alongside this, there will be new, special orders from Major Howard which will offer players a new way to directly get one of the new weapon variants for free. The orders will be rotated every day to offer fans a way to unlock new variants of each of the new weapons coming for free. There are other rarity of the new weapons coming to Call of Duty: WWII, which can be unlocked through Collection Bounties, similar to how collections work in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, or the new Winter Supply Drop. Winter Supply Drops can be earned by playing games and leveling up; players will also receive 1 free Winter Supply Drop each week by logging in.
The new weapons coming are: GPMG LMG, the Sten SMG, the Gewehr 43 Assault Rifle, Trench Knife, and Ice Pick.
Activision and SHG also says there will be a special Winter Siege Supply Drops in the Quartermaster. During this event, Winter Siege Supply Drops will be replacing Rare Supply Drops. The Winter Siege Supply Drops can be earned through Quartermaster Challenges, end of match drops, or by completing orders. Players will also be able to use Call of Duty Points to get these Winter Siege Supply Drops, but Activision says there are many ways to earn the Drops for free in game.
The Winter Siege event kicks off December 8 at 10AM PT and ends on January 2 at 10AM PT.
