Modern Warfare Twitch drops are now enabled so you can earn rewards by watching streamers. At the time of writing, there are three different items you can earn for use in Call of Duty Modern Warfare, earned at hourly intervals from watching either Modern Warfare or Call of Duty Warzone. Here's how to connect your Twitch account to your Call of Duty account and start earning these Modern Warfare and Warzone Twitch rewards.

In order to connect your Call of Duty account to your Twitch account, follow the steps below.

  1. Start by visiting the official Call of Duty website and either signing up for an account or logging in.
  2. Hover over your name in the top-right hand corner next to "My Call of Duty" and a drop-down will appear. Click on the first option, "Linked Accounts".
  3. Scroll down and at the bottom of the Social Networks header, you'll find the option for a Twitch account. Click "Link", log in to your Twitch account, and you're all set!
  4. Note that if your Twitch account is already linked, it's worth unlinking and re-linking it to ensure the permissions are up to date.

Now, whenever you watch a Modern Warfare or Warzone Twitch stream with confirmed drops enabled, you'll be able to earn rewards. You can tell if a stream has drops on because it will likely say "DROPS ENABLED" in the title of the stream, and underneath the stream window, you'll see the following text:

"Drops enabled! Watch for a chance to earn loot. You can only earn loot on one stream at a time."

If you cannot see that and it instead says "Broadcaster has not enabled in-game drops," get outta there and find another streamer!

There are currently three Modern Warfare Twitch drops you can earn, pictured in the image above and listed below.

  1. "Swing Into Action" calling card (Watch for one hour)
  2. "Skull Trooper" emblem (Watch for two hours)
  3. "Crimson Standard" watch (Watch for three hours)

In order to be eligible for the drops, you do need to ensure you don't have the stream muted. Some people claim it also needs to be active on your screen although this isn't confirmed, but to be safe, we'd recommend leaving it open on your main window while you play Modern Warfare or Warzone on your console. Thankfully these drops are confirmed provided you watch for long enough, so you don't need to cross your fingers for a drop. Enjoy the free loot and read more on the Activision blog post.
