Call Of Duty: WWII Official Reveals "Shamrock & Awe" Event

Call Of Duty: WWII Official Reveals “Shamrock & Awe” Event

Posted by March 13, 2018 Comment

Yesterday we talked about a special St. Patrick’s Day event coming to Call Of Duty: WWII. Today, Sledgehammer Games dropped a brand new update along with the news of their next event, “Shamrock & Awe”, which started today as well. The event will feature a new map called Shipment 1944, as well as two new guns in the form of the M-38 Submachine Gun and the MG-15 Light Machine Gun. You can snag both weapons by completing a certain amount of games, while the map seems to be accessible for everyone to play. We have the teaser video for the event below, along with a complete list of the updates from the devs underneath.

Oh, and yes, we’re fully aware that the Irish were neutral during World War II, but when has being historically accurate ever stopped a game company from doing anything?
