Sledgehammer and Raven Software are going big with Season 2 of Vanguard and Warzone. Not only is there a brand new Zombies experience for players, but Caldera is set for a few map changes in the big update.

The CoD arsenal is also expanding with the inclusion of an array of guns to bolster the game’s light machine gun, assault rifle, submachine gun, and melee weapon classifications.

Some will be made available immediately when Vanguard’s Season 2 Battle Pass drops while others will come throughout the season.

Sledgehammer wants the KG M40 assault rifle to be a versatile option for players.

Vanguard Multiplayer and Warzone will get the KG M40 LMG at launch through the Battle Pass, which the devs are lauding as a “workhorse assault rifle.”

The M40 will have the second-best damage per shot among ARs with over 600 RPM to boot. If players can cope with its recoil problems, then it could be a great option for mid-to-long distance scenarios.

Whitley LMG
