Zombies are making their way to MW3 multiplayer in a brand new Hordepoint mode in Season 2!
Modern Warfare 3’s next season is just around the corner and it’ll bring with it a variety of new maps, a brand new crossover event to get stuck into, as well as some twists to some of COD’s most beloved game modes.
Hordepoint is one of the more interesting modes in Season 2’s lineup. Players will encounter hordes of zombies in a unique twist to the classic Hardpoint multiplayer mode in MW3. Read on to find out more about it!
Hordepoint Release Date
Hordepoint will release alongside the launch of MW3 Season 2 on Wednesday, February 7, 2024. We expect it to go live at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 5 PM GMT.
Therefore, this gives players exactly until they can play Hordepoint in MW3!
The mode was revealed in a post from the official Call of Duty Twitter/X page:
It’s currently unclear whether or not this will be a time-limited mode or added to the game’s general multiplayer rotation. We’ll update this article when we know more!
Hordepoint is a brand new zombie-infused take on the classic Call of Duty Hardpoint game mode. It will see players defending against hordes of zombies while trying to capture points and battle other enemy players in MW3.
The Hordepoint mode first made its way to COD as part of Call of Duty: WWII’s Attack of the Undead community event back in 2018. Now it will be arriving to MW3 in Season 2!
When it arrives on February 7, Hordepoint will be a 6-vs-6 core multiplayer game mode in Modern Warfare 3. Much like the traditional Hardpoint mode, teams will have to fight to control a set of rotating objective areas on the map.
However, in Hordepoint, there will be various roaming zombie NPCs, with more spawning as you enter one of the Hordepoint areas.
This will encourage a change of tactics when it comes to setting up your loadout. Players should consider using SMGs and Shotguns to deal high damage to the zombies at close range. They should also utilize their killstreaks to help with taking down the undead hordes.
It seems the introduction of Hordepoint goes hand in hand with The Walking Dead crossover that’s also coming in Season 2. We can’t imagine a better way to slay the undead than with a Rick Grimes Operator skin in MW3!
