Possibly one of the best outcomes for Call of Duty going back to its boots on grounds roots in Modern Warfare is now we have real life guns once more. In the beta, we got a taste of some of the weapons coming to the game, but it seems the Modern Warfare weapons list has been leaked via datamining.
Before anyone reads on, note that not all the weapons listed below (via VGSources) have been confirmed to be in the game, as some might be released post-launch, or removed entirely with game code left behind. Also, we don’t know for sure if this is the full and complete list or whether Infinity Ward has added more that will be available at launch.
- Honey Badger
- FR 5.56
- FN Scar 17s
- Kilo 141
- PP-19 Bizon
- MP7 (akimbo)
- Origin 12
- Model 680
Light Machine Guns:
- MK2 Carbine
- MGL-32 Grenade Launcher
- Rambo Grenade Launcher
- SA-24 Grinch Infrared SAM
- MGL-32 Incendiary Launcher
- .50 GS (akimbo)
- X16 (akimbo)
- .44 Magnum (akimbo)
- 1911 (akimbo)
- USP 45.
According to the list, there’s roughly 50 weapons available in the game, which isn’t bad. Note that the crossbow is included in the Sniper category, and according to a rumor, this will be the first weapon available via Supply Drops.
Speaking of weapons, redditor MRMD123456 made a very good point in how attachments work, and how they are renamed in real life once the proper attachments are slotted in.
Thankfully, Infinity Ward Art Director Joel Emslie explained how this would work with the game’s “Blueprints.”
When you gunsmith a weapon you can save it as a blueprint, name it, and use it in your loadout. The designated weapon name will show up first and then the blueprint name. Really nice way to get technical with your mods.
This is definitely a nice touch. I can see players picking different attachments for the same weapon and putting a Blueprint on it already. This should be useful for different types of engagements.
In other Modern Warfare news, the official description of the PS4-exclusive mode for Spec Ops Survival has been revealed. Cross-progression across platforms has been confirmed too, which should be another welcome addition to the franchise.
