Black Ops 4 has officially released worldwide, and the Call of Duty community is back on its annual grind.

Just as with previous Treyarch titles, Black Ops 4 has already proven to be a complex and multi-layered game that will have have players busy for months to come.

The Multiplayer is full of intricate weapons, maps, items, Specialists, and more, all of which have their own unique characteristics and specifications.

In addition, this year’s title also includes Blackout, Call of Duty’s first ever attempt at a battle royale. Although the mode comes as a part of Black Ops 4, it is elaborate enough to be easily considered its own whole game.

All things considered, the complexity of Black Ops 4 can get a overwhelming during the heat of the battle, and this can prove especially true when switching between the two online modes.

In an effort to help you navigate this year’s title, we have compiled a multitude of guides for both the Multiplayer and Blackout, which can serve as a blueprint for you to try and become the best Call of Duty player you can be.

The list of links to all over our Black Ops 4 guides can be found below, and will be updated every time a new guide is released.

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.
