Shipment 1944 Playlist
The Shipment featured playlist is added to the game, allowing players to play a mosh pit of game modes only on the map Shipment 1944.
The Leprechaun Hunt Moshpit is a mosh pit of game modes including Team Deathmatch, Hardpoint, Kill Confirmed, and Domination with a scurrying leprechaun hiding around the map. Players who manage to eliminate this mischievous little sprite are rewarded with the Scorestreaks they have equipped, providing a quick way to change the game.

Two new ranged weapons are added to the game with the event update, including the M-38 submachine gun and the MG 81 light machine gun. Players are able to earn these weapons via completing Special Orders, opening a variant in a supply drop or completing special collections.
Headquarters and Aesthetics
Like all previous events, the Headquarters have been changed to fit the new theme, featuring many St. Patrick's Day themed items, such a clovers, rainbows, a giant mug in the center of the map, and new designs for the targets in the Shooting Range. Captain Butcher returns for the event as well, having a more cheerful attitude than what he had in the previous event.
With this event came several new additions to the Nazi Zombies mode. In the Nazi Zombies lobby, several Irish flags are lined up along the side of the train tracks, as well as clovers and gold coins covering the ground. In each of the three current maps, the player can complete a small clover hunt, which rewards the player one of three special animated camouflages for each map upon completion. The Leprechaun Zombie appears in this as well, rewarding the player who successfully kills it with a melee attack 5,000 Jolts.
