WWII beta increases the level cap and adds new weapons

Xbox One owners, the Call of Duty: WWII beta kicks off Sept 1.

PlayStation 4 owners were able to battle it out on the battlefields of Call of Duty: WW2's private multiplayer beta last weekend, and now Xbox One owners can join in on the action as well.

It was announced ahead of the second weekend that there would be a number of changes, including Molotov's being limited to one per scorestreak and the incendiary shotgun shells getting their own nerf.

Kill Confirmed-a popular game mode where players collect dog tags off dead bodies to confirm their kills-has been added to the Mosh Pit playlist on the beta, along with the highly-anticipated Flamethrower scorestreak, which can be unlocked at level 32. PS4 owners were treated to a surprise update just a couple of days after the private beta launched on that platform that increased the level cap and added new guns to unlock, so a similar update may be in store before the beta concludes on September 4th.

"Starting this Friday, September 1 at 10 a.m. PDT you can get your boots on the ground and start playing Call of Duty: WWII during the game's private multiplayer beta, lasting through to Monday, September 4 at 10 a.m. PDT", Microsoft's Mike Nelson writes.

The first weekend was a roaring success with the servers all working promptly and the community providing feedback that this is the type of game they wanted. Team Deathmatch will now have a skill cap of 100, while kills in Domination will grant players 100 points.

"We also reduced Molotovs to one per score streak, and raised the difficulty of the paratroopers", Activision explained. "In addition, we've adjusted the ADS out of sprint and those changes will roll into the MP Beta on Saturday". We've addressed Hitmarker feedback for November, and we're considering flinch adjustments as well.
