Has another weapon been added to Black Ops 4 gentleman's agreement?

Has another weapon been added to Black Ops 4 gentleman's agreement?

Speculation is looming over another weapon possibly being added to the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 gentleman's agreement (or 'GA'), this time a popular Tactical Rifle - the Swordfish.

The Swordfish, a four-round burst weapon, has enjoyed a new lease of life following the latest update in Black Ops 4, as other weapons suffered a nerf.

For professional players, the Swordfish suddenly became a viable option - but rumors are already circulating that it has been added to the 'GA' list of weapons which are not permitted.

Pro players using gentleman's agreements to rule a weapon, or other item, out of play, even though it is not part of the official CWL restrictions list.

It allows professional players to adapt the game to their liking more quickly, without having to wait on developers to implement a change, but some fans argue it may be going too far.

Speculation that the Swordfish has been added to the list of GA'd items, stems from a Tweet from Red Reserve's Trei 'Zer0' Morris, suggesting that the Swordfish had met the same fate as the Stock II attachment (also GA'd).

Fans also report that an OpTic Gaming scrim match was ended and restarted after the other (unnamed) team used the Swordfish initially. After the match restarted, the other team had put away the Tactical Rifle.

It's not certain if the Swordfish has been officially added to the agreed upon list of restricted items yet, but it looks like some of the professional players are at least toying with the idea.
