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

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.

Black Ops Cold War Season 1 weapons, maps, scorestreaks leaked

About a month after its release, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s Season 1 is expected to release on December 10. And, weeks before that highly anticipated date, leakers have revealed maps, weapons, and scorestreaks coming to the game.

For the first time in Call of Duty’s history, Warzone will not only allow cross-play between different consoles and systems, but also between content from two distinct CoD titles.

On December 10, Treyarch enthusiasts get to enjoy Black Ops Cold War’s first season of new content, and the chance to bring that content over to Verdansk.

Theoretically, that means players will be able to use loadouts with a Modern Warfare AK-47 alongside a Black Ops Cold War AK-74u. But, according to leakers such as ‘WarzoneNewz’ and ‘CODColdWarNewz’ on Twitter, there will be even more guns to choose from in Season 1.

As WarzoneNewz explains, there will be four new maps, two new guns, and one new scorestreak launching on December 10. While they don’t have pictures of the incoming maps or the scorestreak, they have revealed glimpses of each weapon.

Four new maps have been revealed for Season 1: Dune, Mall, Apocalypse, and Echeleon. While Echeleon sounds like a sci-fi misspelling of the word “echelon” that would suit BOCW’s Zombies mode, it is the more fittingly named Apocalypse that is expected to be a map solely made for that mode.

Both new weapons are expected to be automatic, but the Groza is a bullpup assault rifle, based on the Russian OTs-14, which itself is based on the AK-74u. From leaked pictures, it appears similar to Modern Warfare’s RAM-7: a stocky, mobile AR with room for a fat magazine.

The other new leaked weapon is also automatic, but has been confirmed to be a shotgun (although its name remains unclear). Described as a “full auto shotgun” by WarzoneNewz, the included picture shows a long, slender build that feels closer to an LMG than an actual, chunky shotgun.

Nonetheless, a full-auto shotgun echoes the JAK-12, which was released to Modern Warfare and Warzone in Season 6.

The final point of intrigue among these leaks is the “K9 Unit” scorestreak. Fans of Treyarch’s last title, Black Ops 4, are very familiar with the decimation dogs can bring to Call of Duty, as the game’s Nomad Specialist had an Attack Dog companion.

Dogs have helped Black Ops players across numerous titles, but they appear ready to make their return in BOCW for Season 1’s launch. In the meantime, we’ll be keeping an eye out for any other leaks and news.
