A new limited-time Halloween event is coming to both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare andCall of Duty: Warzone. The JAK-12 Shotgun, the new close-quarters weapon is gracing the game alongside the Haunting of Verdansk 2020 update, and becomes available on October 20.

For now, you can only play in trios, with standard daytime Trios being removed, but there's a chance that other options will be added at a later date, sometime later in the Halloween event. And, of course, you'll be free to purchase the Billy the Puppet and Leatherface skins with the appropriate movie bundles once the event's underway.

From October 20 to November 3, Modern Warfare and Warzone players will be able to get hold of a multitude of new items, game modes, rewards and bundles; all on the occasion of this anniversary of the day of the dead and even a cross with the intellectual property of Saw and La Matanza de Texas. Instead, they'll turn into a zombie with "increased speed, improved jumps, deadlier melee attacks, and thermal vision", though they can't use guns. The last squad with at least one living player claims victory.

The region is bordered by Brunei, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. The two leaders also discussed ways to promote Japan's Free and Open Indo-Pacific (FOIP) foreign policy initiative.

What Warzone Night Mode is is the same map you're used to, but at night and with some spooky goings on. The official blog post also hints at some supernatural additions to Verdansk for the duration of the event. The tease doesn't give up any details, but we do get the iconic TCM music and a look at the poster for a new film, also called The Texas Chainsaw Massacre that is set for release in 2021. These boxes will either contain a unique cosmetic item, a weapon blueprint, or something more horrifying.

Also in Warzone are new Trick or Treat Supply Boxes.

Players that collect all 16 rewards in the Trick or Treat boxes will receive the "Pumpkin Punisher" legendary assault rifle blueprint. Activision says there are some spooky changes in game modes too, "expect scarecrows on Domination points instead of flags, skulls instead of dog tags in Kill Confirmed".
