Call of Duty: Ghosts Extinction adds Chaos Mode, and a never ending supply of targets

call duty ghosts extinction adds chaos mode never ending supply targets

Activision and Infinity Ward have introduced a new mode to the Call of Duty: Ghosts‘ Extinction mode, which offers perks, multipliers, and a never ending supply of aliens that want to kill you. The new offering, titled Chaos Mode, is available now for PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One, with PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 releases coming soon.

The new Chaos Mode is a revamp of the same concept that was originally introduced in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3‘s Spec Ops, only here, you and up to three other teammates against an endless wave of alien Cryptids. Each player has their own combo meter, which fills by damaging Cryptids, collecting weapons and items, and using abilities. The more combo points you earn, the more multipliers you collect. When you hit certain milestones, you are rewarded with perks, and the more milestones you hit, the more perks you unlock.

Chaos Mode also features random, bonus drops that offer everything from one time cash bonuses to special ammo to new weapons. You can find a full list below courtesy of the official Call of Duty Community Page.

Along with the Chaos Mode, you will also now find two new options in the Extinction match menu: Casual Extinction and Hardcore Extinction. Both require the two DLC packs that add Episodes 1 and 2, Nightfall and Mayday, and both are lobbies that offer a random rotation of all three maps.

Chaos Mode is available as a free update that also includes a handful of bug fixes in both the Extinction and Multiplayer modes. Anyone can play the new mode regardless of whether or not they have the DLC, but you can only play it on the maps you own – so if you want to try it on Nightfall or Mayday, you’ll need to own those expansions.

Here’s the full list of Chaos Mode perks and the bonus items you can find:
