2. Modern Warfare Season 4 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 4 is launching tonight. Originally planned for June 3, Infinity Ward decided to delay the upcoming season in order to show solidarity with “those speaking up for equality, justice, and change.” Both Modern Warfare and Warzone will be receiving significant updates, but fans will have to wait until tonight to see exactly what’s in store. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 4 begins tonight at 11pm Pacific Time.

4. Destiny 2 Witherhoard Glitch The eleventh season for Destiny 2 launched yesterday to rave reviews, but it appears that one of the new items is causing a bit of an issue. The newly released Witherhoard, an exotic grenade launcher, has a glitch that makes it extremely overpowered. In fact, the Witherhoard’s glitch is so powerful that it enables players to instantly kill raid bosses. It’s unclear what's causing the glitch and it doesn’t seem that Bungie is particularly motivated to patch it immediately, so if you want to have a bit of fun grab yourself a Witherhoard and see what it can do.
