Two new weapons have been added in Modern Warfare Season 6, the SP-R208 marksman rifle and the AS VAL. We’ve put together everything there is to know about them, including how they work and of course how to unlock them.

Season 6 is here, and it’s a bit of a doozy; subways are finally open across Verdansk, the notorious Origin 12 has finally been nerfed, and multiplayer got a hefty four new maps.

Among all the exciting new Season 6 content ⁠— which also includes new operators Farah and Nikolai, and a new-look Armory Royale LTM ⁠— were two new weapons; the silent AS VAL assault rifle, and the long-ranged SP-R208 marksman rifle.

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.

The release of the AS VAL in Season 6 marks the thirteenth assault rifle added to Modern Warfare.

SP-R208 Marksman Rifle

The SP-R208 has been branded by Infinity Ward as the “one of the most accurate weapons in its class”. That makes it a must-unlock right off the bat after the Season 6 update.

The marksman rifle boasts “alternate ammo choices,” as well as “bolt assembly changes”. The devs wrote in their Sep. 27 update, “No matter how this weapon is configured, it’s a powerful yet mobile tool for a marksman on the go.”

The SP-R208 is the first major gun you will unlock in the Season 6 battle pass. Call of Duty players will simply need to grind to Tier 15 of this season’s rewards to unlock the rifle. It’s on the free track too; all you’ll need is experience.

AS VAL Assault Rifle

The AS VAL’s release marks the thirteenth assault rifle added to Modern Warfare.

Season 6’s assault rifle may be the best yet too, considering it comes packing a suppressor. The gun is renowned for its “stealth, accuracy, and high penetration,” all of which is paired with one of Modern Warfare’s highest rates of fire.

Modern Warfare players wanting to get their hands on the AS VAL in Season 6 will need to level up the battle pass to Tier 31. Once you do that, you’ll be able to add this deadly gun to your arsenal, ready to dominate throughout Season 6.

Faster ways of unlocking new Season 6 guns

While grinding the game and leveling up the Battle Pass is one way of unlocking the new Season 6 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 SP-R208 marksman rifle. You can then buy the next 11 tiers to the next Season 6 gun, at $1.50 each. That will unlock you the AS VAL 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 AS VAL and SP-R208 are, of course, just small additions in Season 6’s mega-update, which is out now. For full details on everything Infinity Ward has added to Modern Warfare & Warzone, check out our September 28 update patch notes.

Another massive Warzone event is heating up as popular content creator and battle royale champion Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas is hosting his very own tournament with $300,000 on the line.

Following close behind Vikkstar’s original Warzone competition, HusKerrs is next in line for his own huge Call of Duty event. HusKerrs Howl aims to crown the best partners in the world as this unique event focuses on Duos action.

After making history as the first player to pass six figures in Warzone winnings, it’s only fitting that HusKerrs’ event comes with the biggest prize pool yet. A whopping $300,000 is up for grabs over the course of two weeks.

From the teams that will be dropping in to when each round of action is taking place, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about the HusKerrs Howl Warzone event.

What is the HusKerrs Howl Warzone event?

The HusKerrs Howl event is one of the biggest Warzone tournaments to date. Not just in terms of prizing, but in how long it’s set to last and how many teams will be getting involved.

Duos will be dropping into Verdansk across multiple weeks in order to qualify for the Finals. Additionally, there’s also a special one-off Zombie Trios section to get things going before the Duos competition really begins.

A brand new Twitch channel has been created just for this event with HusKerrs set to host. We’ve embedded this below for your convenience. Expect almost every competitor to be sharing their own perspective throughout the tournament as well.

HusKerrs Howl will be starting with a Zombie Royale showdown.

First up is the special Zombie Day event on Friday, October 30 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET. This is a unique Trios competition in the Zombie Royale playlists. Only one team can take out the prize for what is essentially a warm-up run before the real show starts up.

The following day on October 31, Duos will be dropping in for the first round of qualifying action. This will be followed up by the second and third rounds on November 5 and November 6 respectively.

Last but not least, the best Duos from the qualifiers will advance through to the Finals. This takes place on November 7 to determine the overall winner of the HusKerrs Howl event.

This particular competition is for Duos only.

This particular Warzone competition is for Duos only and will feature a double-elimination bracket. 16 teams will be dropping in for the first day of action. They will go head to head until the very end with only the Top 3 qualifying for the Finals.

For the final two days of the qualifiers, only eight duos will be playing. From here, the Top 2 make it into the Finals. This makes seven Duos so HusKerrs will be taking the eighth and final spot.

As teams are going head to head, the Duo with the highest point total in each matchup will advance. No different from most Warzone events, teams will be awarded one point per elimination. There’s currently no telling how many points will be awarded for higher placements in each match.

Stay tuned over the coming days for full recaps and results as the action gets underway. Big names such as Symfuhny, Aydan, and TeePee are all expected for the event. So it’s sure to be an intense tournament.
