Activision and Infinity Ward have given fans a sneak peek at one of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s operators – Minotaur.

In Modern Warfare, operators are unique characters that players can play as, with each having their own customization options, dialogue, and lore. They are similar to Black Ops 4’s specialists, but do not have abilities that affect gameplay.

Operators are split into two umbrella factions – Allegiance and Coalition – which are made up of multiple key CoD factions like Spetsnaz and the SAS. So far, 20 operators have been confirmed, although only a handful have been revealed.

ActivisionThorne is another Modern Warfare operator.

The newest operator, Minotaur, was revealed on September 11 in a rather unique way. An AR Snapchat Code showed an image of his upper body, as well as a bit of information about him.

Based on that information, Minotaur is a Russian who is a part of Spetsnaz and appears to be rocking a stylish blue and white striped tank top. Not much else was revealed about him, but with the beta just around the corner, and release looming ever closer, more details are sure to appear soon.

A few other operators have been revealed since the Modern Warfare announcement in May, showing off interesting customization features like capes and tattoos. Minotaur, however, seems to be one of the most unique ones yet with his very casual look.

The Modern Warfare early access Beta beings on PS4 at 10:00 AM PT on September 12, with PC and Xbox players being able to join the action from September 19. Fans will be able to test out operators in the beta, and perhaps even discover something new.

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

The Going Dark theme is new for CoD Mobile Season 12.

CoD Mobile .50 GS handgun Small Arms challenges

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
