A mid-season update to both Modern Warfare and Warzone has introduced a brand-new LMG to the weapon pool. The “agile” FiNN LMG is available now and here’s how you can get your hands on it.

While much of the focus of the Season 5 Reloaded patch was focused on new modes and Games of Summer trials, a new weapon was also introduced. The August 24 update brought with it a beastly LMG to use across the BR experience alongside standard multiplayer modes.

Billed as an “agile, mobile, and hostile” weapon in its class, the gun aims to blur the lines between ARs and LMGs, according to the developers. It packs a punch while still keeping your movement speed intact.

If you’re eager to get your hands on the new weapon, it’s available for you as soon as your update has installed. There are two distinct ways to add it to your arsenal, however. Here’s an overview of how you can pick up the FiNN LMG in your next session.

How to get the FiNN LMG in the Season 5 Reloaded update

Call of Duty Modern Warfare Season 5 Reloaded roadmap
The FiNN LMG was introduced on August 25 with the Season 5 Reloaded update.

In order to acquire the new weapon, players have two options with the new update. The first choice is simple, but it’ll cost you. The FiNN LMG can be picked up through a new ‘Mainframe’ cosmetic bundle as it goes live in the digital store. This will give you instant access but it’ll run you a set amount of CoD points.

Alternatively, you can earn the weapon without having to pay a dime. And as it stands, the challenge you need to complete for the LMG is actually quick and easy. All you’ll need to do is create a custom LMG class and quickly hop into any casual multiplayer playlist.

The objective asks you to find a single melee kill in seven different matches while using an LMG. It can be any of the weapons in the class, and you can speed up the process in a big way.

Rather than playing out a full match and only tallying a single melee kill for your troubles, you can quickly leave each lobby. As soon as you load in, find your melee kill and dash back out to the main menu. You should be able to blitz through seven games in just a matter of minutes with this method.

The FiNN comes with a great deal of accuracy at a cost to range and fire rate. This is all to balance the most important feature of the new gun. The fact that movement speed is more so in line with that of an AR, than compared to your speed when using an LMG.

You can grab this weapon for yourself the next time that you hop into Modern Warfare. Expect to see it in nearly every Warzone match over the next few days as well. Players will be looking to test out the latest firearm as per usual.

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.


Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
