Texture Packs and Texture Streaming in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone

Texture updates to reduce the overall size of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone

Texture Pack DLC for consoles

With the release of the November 2020 update, console players have the option to select the resolution textures of Operators and Weapons. The update will release with slightly reduced Operator and Weapon texture resolutions by default, and an optional high-resolution texture pack will be available to download and install.


Texture Streaming for PC

On PC, the November 2020 update introduces Texture Streaming. This feature was developed to reduce the game's overall package size by removing certain textures rarely used or encountered by players. If players encounter an Operator or Weapon that uses a high-resolution texture, it will be streamed to the PC's cache as needed.

You will be able to control bandwidth usage and set a daily cap through the Options menu. However, even with this flexibility, you shouldn't notice any effects on bandwidth with texture streaming enabled.

Players with graphics set to High will stream high-resolution textures for Operators and Weapons, while players with graphics set to Medium or Low will be unaffected.

1. How do I install texture packs on my console?

On PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, players will be prompted to download the DLC the first time they log in to the game. Accepting the prompt will open the Game Installs menu. From there, follow the on-screen steps to download and install the texture pack. 

If you don't accept the prompt the first time you log in, you can navigate to the Game Installs menu to download and install the texture pack.

PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will not receive a prompt and will need to navigate to the Game Installs menu to download and install the texture pack.

2. Will the texture pack option be available on next-gen consoles?

Yes. Players on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will receive a prompt to download the DLC the first time they log in to the game. Players on Xbox Series S will need to navigate to the Game Installs menu to download and install the texture pack. 

3. Will there be other texture packs in the future?

Texture packs are currently planned for future updates. 

4. Why are there different texture solutions on console and PC?

Texture streaming is designed to save more hard drive space compared to texture packs. However, texture streaming is currently not supported on consoles.

5. Can I turn off texture streaming?

Yes, texture streaming can be turned off within the Options menu.

6. Can I set my Texture Resolution to High and have texture streaming turned off?

Yes. Texture streaming currently only applies to Operators and Weapons. If you choose to turn off texture streaming with your Texture Resolution set to High, you will still see high-resolution textures on other assets within the game.
