Modern Warfare Remastered St. Patrick’s Day Event

By: Connor Murphy | March 15th, 2017

Following a Christmas-themed extravaganza in December, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered’s first event of 2017 comes in the form of “Shamrock & Awe”—an ode to the green themes of March. Players have access to themed items, free supply drops, a new playable character, and a remixed map. Event access is available to anyone with a copy of MWR from today, March 14th, through the 3rd of April. Check out the trailer below!

As with last year’s Christmas event, St. Patrick’s Day ushers in a wave of camos and weapon themes, including a new melee weapon: the Shillelagh Bounty. The celtic club looks straight from the branch of a tree and ready to raise hell. Also available is a shamrock-green knife.

If players earn all of the “Shamrock & Awe” rewards before the end of the event, they’ll unlock the Irish depot officer Graves as a playable avatar. Every week players also receive a free supply drop containing a chance at some of the twenty event-exclusive items. Be sure to check in before every Sunday!

Fan-favorite Downpour receives a sunny facelift with Daybreak. The rainy motif flips completely into a lush, rainbow-dotted farmstead adorned with St. Patrick’s Day decorations and flags. Given the ludicrous nature of Winter Crash as a predecessor, it’s going to be interesting to see how detailed Daybreak turns out. If you own a copy of MWR, download the update and dive into some Call of Duty March madness.
