Call of Duty: WWII’s Next Event is Already Upon Us

Operation: Shamrock and Awe begins Tuesday, March 13th and brings with it new items, fewer duplicates, and new special duplicates.

The Resistance event ended only a few weeks ago and already Sledgehammer has another event ready to go. Tweeting earlier this afternoon they revealed an St. Patrick’s Day themed event with an image of Captain Butcher sporting a four leaf clover. In their official developer update, they have promised plenty of new themed items to collect along with it. Perhaps most promising is their move to reduce the number of duplicates and new special orders to help players earn some of the more elusive weapons.

As an added bonus Gun Game and Prop Hunt are here to stay. They will both be available permanently and Sledgehammer is adding them to the new DLC maps as well.

There will be a new trailer to show off some of that Shamrock and Awe gear tomorrow in the meantime here are the full details of the update:

  • Increased Number of Weapons & Premium Content per Update – We’re adding new ranged weapons, more cosmetic weapon variants, and themed uniforms with a commitment to double-down on these categories moving forward so you’ll be able to get more of the content you want.
  • More Ways to Earn Weapons – We are offering a variety of paths to obtain the most-wanted weapons and weapon variants in-game as more will be made available via Orders and Contracts, in addition to existing Weapon Collections and Supply Drops.
  • Lowered Duplicate Rates – We are reducing the frequency of duplicates you’ll receive within Supply Drops to deliver more new content in every drop.
  • Rebalanced Category Reward Rates – This will ensure you are getting a wider variety of content categories within every drop, which will make the unboxing experience more satisfying (we heard you on what it feels like to get triple duplicate pistol grips).
  • New Special Orders – We heard your feedback on certain weapons being available only via Common Supply Drops and how hard they are to get. We are moving these into Special Orders so that they are easier to access.
  • New Categories of Items – You will have more ways to customize your solider and loadout with the introduction of weapon charms, camos, and reticles.
  • Content Changes – We are removing gold foil calling cards, and won’t be adding new pistol grips to the loot pool.
  • Armory Drops – We are adding a new Supply Drop type “Armory Drops” which will function a lot like Bribes but can be obtained for Armory Credits to provide yet another way to get the content you’re after.
