The conclusion to the inaugural Call of Duty League season is fast approaching and Modern Warfare looks set to receive a unique in-game bundle to celebrate the biggest event of the year.

The annual Call of Duty League Championship event is always held to a different pedigree. It’s the final event of each CoD release and it’s where teams truly stake their claim at being the best in the world.

While dates have not yet been confirmed for the final post-season event in 2020, Modern Warfare looks to celebrate the occasion. Following the June 29 update, a ‘CDL Champs 2020 Pack’ has been spotted in the game’s files.

This new bundle comes with an assortment of cosmetic items along with unique weapon Blueprints. Additionally, 55 player signatures can also be acquired, though it’s unclear how these will be applied in-game.

This leaked bundle celebrates the upcoming CDL Champs 2020 event.

“The CDL Champs 2020 are here,” the bundle’s flavor text reads. With the final regular season Home Series coming to a close on July 26 in Toronto, it’s likely this bundle releases sometime in August once playoff dates are locked in.

“Play like a pro with 3 CDL Blueprints with pro-approved attachments.” These Blueprints cover the M4A1 Assault Rifle, the HDR Sniper, and the M19 Handgun. There’s no telling just what attachments may come equipped, though the builds are supposedly from CDL pros themselves.

On top of these Blueprints, two weapon charms are also visible in the leaked bundle. One reveals the new design for the 2020 Championship rings. While the other is a commemorative plaque for the inaugural ‘Championship Weekend.’

While not everything was on display, here’s a rundown of all items included in the upcoming CDL Champs 2020 Pack:

  • Three CDL Blueprints (M4A1, HRD, M19).
  • Two Weapon Charms (CDL Champs 2020 Ring, CDL Champs 2020 Gold).
  • 55 Player Signatures (From 11 CDL Teams).
  • Three Calling Cards.
  • Three Sprays.

Modern Warfare players can already support their favorite CDL teams with in-game bundles.

Perhaps the most unique inclusion in this bundle is the player signatures. 55 players will have their autographs available to fans in-game. Perhaps they will be available as custom emblems or even sprays. Of note, however, is that only 11 teams will receive this treatment. One of the 12 teams in the 2020 season will miss out for unknown reasons.

There’s no telling the exact cost of the bundle just yet, though you can expect to find it in-game when the 2020 CDL playoffs get underway.

Modern Warfare glitch reveals unreleased Makarov pistol

Infinity Ward adds weapons to Modern Warfare with each new season, though it appears even more have been in the works behind the scenes as a secret pistol was accidentally handed out due to a confusing glitch.

Problematic bugs have been on the rise once again throughout Modern Warfare’s sixth and final season. Warzone players have had their runs ended by broken Loadout Drops while others have literally been left in the dark as a result of a game-breaking issue. Despite these problems, every now and then, glitches can actually be a pleasant surprise.

This was the case on October 27 as a player shockingly stumbled upon a new weapon. While playing offline, they noticed something suspicious. One of the AI-controlled enemies was wielding a unique pistol.

After taking them down and picking up the gun, the Makarov was revealed in all its glory. Fit with custom animations, an unfinished model, but all the firepower you’d expect from the classic secondary.

The Makarov pistol first appeared in 2010’s Black Ops and soon featured in the game’s sequel before disappearing. It was usable across the campaign and multiplayer in the first game, though only appeared in the story for the follow-up.

Evidently, it’s an extremely rare weapon compared to some iconic guns in the Call of Duty franchise. Having only appeared in Treyarch releases, it’s a surprise to see the pistol up and running in Modern Warfare.

It appeared as a Renetti on the ground and the icon matched up as well. Though it’s very clear a good amount of work has been put into the gun. From unique reload and inspect animations to its own balancing, it may have been in the plans for a previous seasonal update.

Given the unfinished model of the weapon, however, there’s a good chance we don’t see it properly anytime soon. Infinity Ward could have been testing it months ago before scrapping the gun. Perhaps it’s simply in the game’s files as a placeholder. There’s really no telling at this point in time.

The Makarov pistol has only been usable in Black Ops 1 and 2.

It popped up during an offline session against bots, so don’t expect to see this random bug in an online match either. It would be surprising to see the weapon appear in an Infinity Ward title for the first time after such a long gap, though anything is possible.

With Treyarch taking over Warzone with the transition to Black Ops Cold War, however, it would make more sense to see the Makarov in 2021.
