The Daily Moot (7/11/19)News Picks
1. First Look at Modern Warfare’s Gunfight Mode
Infinity Ward has officially revealed this morning the Gunfight game mode that will be in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Gunfight is a 2v2 game mode where duos face off on a small map. Your loadouts are random and will change from round to round. You can see this in action right now on Twitch. There will also be a big reveal of the multiplayer for Modern Warfare on August 1st.

If you just tried the exploit to test it or whatever, you’re in the clear; Ubisoft has reported they will only be giving bans to those who used it 10 or more times.

While we’re sure the people in charge of this decision are intelligent people, it is sad to see older generations create laws on topics that they clearly misunderstand on a fundamental level.
4. Valve Introduces a New Steam Tool to Recommend Games For a store with effectively unlimited games to play, Steam has historically done a poor job helping users find games they may actually like. In an effort to change that, Valve introduced a new tool today that uses machine learning to recommend games you may like. This is a part of Steam Labs, a new program that gives users a chance to test work-in-progress features.
