Two new weapons have been added in Modern Warfare Season 5, the AN-94 assault rifle & ISO submachine gun, and we’ve got everything there is to know about them, from how they work, to images, and of course how to unlock them.

Season 5, which many have dubbed the most anticipated chapter of Modern Warfare yet, is finally here. The August 5 patch added stacks of multiplayer and Warzone content, including the new ‘Stadium’ interior and more.

Among all the new Season 5 content ⁠— which also includes a new huge freight train, and ascension zip cables scattered across Verdansk — were two new guns: the AN-94 assault rifle, and the ISO submachine gun.

Just as Activision promised at the beginning of the Modern Warfare cycle, and delivered on in the last few seasons, both these new weapons are available to all players for free simply by leveling up this season’s new Battle Pass.

Players who don’t want to grind can also instantly obtain one or both of these guns by purchasing their way up the Battle Pass to each gun’s specific Tier.

ISO Submachine Gun

The new APC9 ISO submachine gun has one major selling point heading into Season 5 right off the bat: it has an extremely rapid rate of fire, according to the Infinity Ward devs.

The SMG is “lightweight, reliable, and compact,” which gives it an edge when it comes to “controlling the battlefield at close ranges”. The ISO certainly seems to be a top pick for the Call of Duty players that love to run-and-gun.

Unlocking the new submachine gun should be fairly easy too. Call of Duty players will simply have to grind to Tier 15 of the Season 5 battle pass to unlock the SMG. It’s on the free track, meaning you don’t have to purchase the premium pass.

AN-94 Assault Rifle

The AN-94 will be familiar to anyone that’s played Call of Duty over the years on both console and mobile. The assault rifle’s debut in Modern Warfare marks the eighth time it has appeared in the franchise, including in Black Ops 2, 3, and 4.

Infinity Ward described the AN-94 as a “cutting edge” 5.45x39mm Russian assault rifle which boasts a “unique hyper burst feature”. The gun’s initial shot is full-auto but is followed up by a second-round volley and “significant” recoil.

The new Season 5 assault rifle has a huge amount of damage potential, the Modern Warfare developers wrote on their Season Five blog post, and has a reciprocating receiver to mitigate some of the gun’s “massive” recoil.

The AN-94 assault rifle will take a bit more grinding to unlock than the ISO, which is fitting considering its power: you’ll have to level the Season 5 battle pass up to Tier 31 before you can get your hands on this deadly gun.

Faster ways of unlocking new Season 5 guns

While grinding the game and leveling up the Battle Pass is one way of unlocking the new Season 5 guns, there are alternative methods, albeit not free.

One way is to buy the Battle Pass Bundle. That would instantly unlock the first 20 Tiers, and, with it, the ISO SMG. You can then purchase the next 16 Tiers to the second Season 5 gun at $1.50 each. That will unlock you the AN-94 assault rifle too.

There is also, of course, the option to just purchase the whole Battle Pass outright. That would cost around $150 USD, but would unlock all of the Tiers and rewards at once. Both of the new guns would be included in that package.

The Fennec and CR-56 Amax are, of course, just small additions in Season 5’s mega-update, which is out now. For full details on everything Infinity Ward has added to Modern Warfare & Warzone, check out our August 5 update patch notes.

Dr Disrespect rants to himself for 10 mins after accidentally muting mic

Streaming superstar Dr Disrespect accidentally muted his microphone just as he began a legendary-looking rant about Call of Duty: Warzone, and may inadvertently have created a new trend in streaming at the same time.

Doc is undoubtedly one of the biggest personalities out there on the internet, but like anyone else, he can still fall victim to the treacherous mindset of getting tilted. 

Like all professionals, he usually does a good job of keeping the speed, violence, and momentum directed at opponents. But during a recent stream, he experienced one Warzone death due to flashbangs too many and took it out on his desk instead.

With a slam that would make fellow streaming star, xQc, proud, the Two-Time let his desk have it just as he was entering into what seemed like quite the heated exposition on the role of flashes grenades in Warzone.

The only problem was that his smack muted the microphone and he didn’t realize it, leading to what may have been the best mime impression on Twitch for the next 10-plus minutes.

It genuinely seems like the 2019 Streamer of the Year had no idea he was basically just talking to himself, as you can even see him going into bits and continuing to rant before he unmutes. It seemed to work out fine though, as he made a pretty penny in donations from viewers telling him they couldn’t hear.

Was it really a mistake, or a bold new strategy in streaming?

“Well, that’s what happens when you slam sh*t around, you know?” Doc reflected. “I think I got like, $100 bucks from people telling me I’m muted. Hey Alex, next time mute me for like two hours, yeah.”

If Dr Disrespect hasn’t chosen a Halloween costume for this year, maybe going trick-or-treating as a mime might be his best option at this point.

Speaking of Halloween, the good doctor’s annual Doctober costume contest is nearing its conclusion as hundreds of fans have submitted their best cosplays, hoping for a chance to be selected among the best. The winners are due to be announced in the upcoming few days, but you can check out some of the best costume submissions so far here.
