A discreet nod towards Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare has been found in the latest game in the franchise by a sharp-eyed fan.

Modern Warfare came out in 2019 to positive reviews, and is the latest game in the expansive FPS franchise.

Call of Duty 4 was the first Modern Warfare game in the series, coming out in 2007, and the first CoD game to move away from the franchise’s original World War 2 setting.

Now, Reddit user raflolio has discovered an Easter Egg that’s a nod to the game that started the series in the latest Modern Warfare.

On the “Flesh Wound” EBR-14, there are coordinates to 51°24’00.0"N 30°04’00.0"E, which is the Pripyat Amusement Park, a subtle nod to the “All Ghillied Up” mission from COD 4 from modernwarfare

Raflolio pointed out in a post to the Modern Warfare subreddit that the coordinates “51°24’00.0″N 30°04’00.0″E” could be found etched into the stock of the EBR-14 Marksman’s Rifle.

If you follow the coordinates on a map, they take you to the Pripyat Amusement Park, which is a part of the “All Ghillied Up” mission from Call of Duty 4.

“All Ghillied Up” has players sneak through the ruins of Pripyat, Ukraine, in the area around the Chernobyl nuclear site on the hunt to assassinate Imran Zakhaev – the main antagonist in CoD 4.

It’s often considered to be one of the best campaign missions in any Call of Duty game, partly due to it’s openness and the number of different options players have when moving through it.

The coordinates only seem to come on one certain skin for the weapon though, and raflolio confirmed that the only way to unlock it is by buying “The Unseen” bundle in the store for 1400 Cod Points.

“All Ghillied Up” was also included in Modern Warfare: Remastered from 2016, which just goes to show Activision has no problem playing up nostalgia from past games – but players don’t seem to mind.

It took several months for users to find this hidden CoD 4 Easter Egg, anyhow, so it will be interesting to see what other Call of Duty-related players find in the future.

Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has revealed what his ideal AUG loadout is in Warzone, offering a viable alternative to the more popular MP5 and MP7 SMGs.

For most people, they’ve got their Warzone loadouts figured out and often run what is typically considered the meta; the Kilo 141, with an MP5 in your back pocket.

While there is occasionally some variation, with some players maybe opting for the likes of the M4A1, an MP7 or a sniper rifle of some sort, there are some weapons that you’ll almost never see in Verdansk.

Season 6 launched back on September 29, and players have been testing out the new weapons, as well as how balancing might have changed the existing crop of guns — and Nick thinks the AUG could be a sleeper pick for your loadout.

The new Season 6 SP-R208 Marksman Rifle has been a particularly popular addition to Warzone.

After mentioning how pro Call of Duty players actually banned the AUG in pro scrims and matches earlier in 2020, as one of the weapons they made a “gentleman’s agreement” to not use, Nick explains that he believes the AUG can actually go toe-to-toe with the likes of the MP5 and MP7.

So, if you’re looking for a new submachine gun to run, and want to use something slightly different to the usual and take enemies by surprise, this AUG loadout might be for you. Here’s what Nick stacks on his:

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: 407mm Extended Barrel
  • Laser: 5mW Laser
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

While most of this follows what we would typically expect from an SMG loadout in Warzone, there are some notable differences, but the biggest is the lack of ammunition options. Usually, you would see someone put some kind of magazine extension on their weapon, as is often necessary when finishing your kills in Warzone.

Instead, Nick’s AUG uses the standard magazine, and he opts for the Stippled Grip Tape underbarrel instead, improving recoil control and aiming stability. With this, you should hopefully hit more shots on your target and not have need for an extended magazine.

You’re not likely to see the AUG used much in Warzone, so with this loadout you might be able to catch your opponents by surprise and pick up some eliminations you wouldn’t have before.
