Weapon camo skins themed after several Call of Duty esports teams have appeared in CoD: WWII.
So far, camos have been confirmed in-game for the following teams: OpTic Gaming, eUnited, Rise Nation, Mindfreak, Luminosity Gaming, Evil Geniuses, Team EnVy, Team Kaliber, UNILAD Esports, Red Reserve, Echo Fox, Splyce, and the CoD World League.
Images of these team themed weapon camos began appearing on the internet and social media on June 25th.
It appears that the only way to actually see them in-game is to load up a private match full of AI players known as ‘bots,’ which carry weapons that are emblazoned with the team designs.
Tainted Minds pro CoD player Giancarlo ‘Nimble’ Vagnini tweeted out several images showing the new skins in-game.

Twitter user Juan Carlos Alvarado (@jdekk0s) tweeted out this image showing the OpTic Gaming weapon camo.
Judging by the fact that these camos have not yet been confirmed or announced by developer Sledgehammer Games, it would appear that they may have been added to the game early by mistake.
Furthermore, not everyone who loads up a private match is able to see these weapon camos, which could have something to do with the upcoming ‘United Front’ DLC #3, which can be currently downloaded and played offline for everyone on PS4 that is outside of the North American region.
This article will be updated with more images of esports team weapon camos should more images of them appear online.
In addition to those two, the Cranked multiplayer game mode was also revealed. However, weapons and a new perk were teased without giving too much away.
Now though, this leak has revealed that the NA-45 from Advanced Warfare, will be the first weapon in CoD Mobile to deal explosive damage with a second shot. There also looks to be an additional unnamed weapon coming too. There is also the brand new perk, Tactician. The perk will allow players to use an additional piece of tactical equipment.
The NA-45 had been available in CoD Mobile before, but it is now returning.
New weapon options – Akimbo & Ammo
As well as those big additions, Season 11 will also introduce new perk options for certain weapons.
This includes being able to use Akimbo with the Fennec, 5.45 ammo for the AK47, and Large Caliber Ammo for the HVK-30. The new ammo will help these weapons do increased damage, especially with headshots.
Battle Royale changes
Battle Royale players aren’t going to be left out. Though rumors have suggested that the Alcatraz map will be available, that’s not mentioned in Garena’s post.
Instead, there is a new weapon in the form of the Purifier, a new gun mod called Sleuth, and a new ammo type called Ballistic Expert. Sleuth will help do more damage and show an enemy on the minimap, while Ballistic Expert is ammo for special weapons like the Purifier and Tempest.
CoD Mobile’s battle royale mode is also in for some changes.
Of course, there will be plenty of new cosmetics to use too – both in the way of new soldiers, and weapon skins.
There are also plenty of improvements coming to both multiplayer and battle royale modes in the form of bug fixes, weapon balancing, as well as some quality of life changes.
The multiplayer changes can be found below, translated from the Garena Facebook page. However, the translations on some of these, as well as the other changes for battle royale and beyond, are slightly broken so we’ll have to wait for the official notes for complete confirmation.
