The event will also be adding an alternate version of the HQ, that will allow for Prop Hunt and Gun Game to be played in.

The weapon variant will be unlocked through a progression system during the event, where players will also unlock cosmetics, skins and playercards.

It’s great to see another Community Event in CoD: WW2 – engaged players will surely appreciate the new content up until the release of Black Ops 4 later in the year.

Riveting.

The Community event will run through to May 9th.
