When Is Shipment 24/7 Coming Back to MW2?

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 players can now play Season 3 of MW2 now that the update is finally here. As per usual with any Call of Duty update, some new modes come along, but others are taken away. One such mode many are hoping to return to the game is Shipment 24.7 – which sees players battle it out on a never-ending loop of Shipment matches. Sounds like fun? It really is.

What is Shipment 24/7?

Shipment 24/7 is a playlist for games like Call of Duty: WWII, Call of Duty: Mobile, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Vanguard and now most recently, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. With a small map and lots of players, Shipment is the perfect way to farm a ton of XP in Modern Warfare 2. Matches usually finish long before the timer runs out – with multiple kills nearly every couple of seconds.

The playlist featured several game modes, these being Team Deathmatch, Domination, Headquarters, Kill Confirmed and Hardpoint. It has been a 6v6 playlist and featured a Hardcore variant, which did not include Hardpoint.

Unfortunately, it remains to be seen when Shipment 24/7 will come out exactly. With Season 3 now here, we’re hopeful Infinity Ward once again lets the community to decide the game’s next playlist. Ahead of the final Modern Warfare 2 playlist rotation update on April 4th, Infinity Ward posted a poll on Twitter for Call of Duty fans to cast their votes on what they would like to see added in the game’s rotation for the next playlist update.

The poll featured four options: 10v10 Team Deathmatch, Dome 24/7, 3rd Person Shoot House, and Extended Shipment. Infinity Ward clarified that Extended Shipment doubles the base score limit of Shipment matches, resulting in longer matches.

This is an exciting development for Modern Warfare 2 players, as they have the chance to influence what playlist is added to the game. While Extended Shipment is the current favorite, it remains to be seen what playlist will be added to the rotation, and players will have to wait until the next update drops to see. Perhaps Season 3 Reloaded will be our lucky day.

Why isn’t Shipment 24/7 a permanent playlist in MW2?

It is evident that Infinity Ward does not want players to exclusively play Shipment 24/7, and while several theories have surfaced as to why the game developers feel this way, a definitive answer remains elusive.

One speculation is that Infinity Ward intermittently removes the map to encourage players to explore other game types. By doing so, the removal of Shipment inevitably disperses players to other game modes and helps to populate lobbies in less popular game types.

A more popular theory is that Infinity Ward intends to impede the rapid leveling up of players. Shipment 24/7 is a popular choice for players who wish to level up their weapons quickly and gain experience points, as it provides non-stop action and is one of the most efficient ways to level up. This essentially devalues events such as Double XP weekends, so it’s about finding the right balance.

Shoothouse 24/7 serves as a replacement for Shipment 24/7 on off weeks, but since it is larger than Shipment, it is less effective for leveling up. As a result, players are left eagerly anticipating when Shipment will return to MW2 again.
