Modern Warfare’s major Season 4 update has come boasting a brand new melee weapon for players to unlock. Here’s a rundown on everything you need to know about the Kali Sticks.

Melee weapons have been few and far between in Modern Warfare, though Season 4 has brought a new addition. Kali Sticks can be unlocked for use in both standard multiplayer and Warzone as well.

The unique unlock hands you two lethal sticks to swat away at your opposition. They stand out from the regular Combat Knife thanks to the ability to dual wield. Meaning that you can attack far more frequently. Here’s a full rundown on the latest melee unlock.

What are the Kali Sticks?

Season 4 allows you to drop into battle while “dual-wielding batons.” This melee option provides a unique buff to movement speed similar to the Combat Knife. However, it also boasts a “sturdy, lightweight design” which “enables rapid attacks.”

If you miss with a regular melee attack, it can take a brief moment to try again. With the new Kali Sticks you can spam away and hit anything in a close range.

How to Unlock the Kali Sticks

Unlike the majority of new Season 4 content, you won’t find the new melee option in the Battle Pass. The Kali Sticks need to be unlocked by completing a specific challenge, one that will take a minimum of 15 games to complete.

Using the standard Combat Knife, you’ll need to tally up three melee kills while sliding across “15 different matches.”

The timing on this could be quite finicky as sliding is an incredibly brief action. Expect to see players sliding around the map more than ever in pursuit of these new Kali Sticks. Our biggest tip is to grind Ground War. It’s the mode with the most players and therefore, the most potential to find three separate sliding melee kills.

If you’re just jumping back into Modern Warfare, there’s plenty on offer following the June 10 Season 4 update. Alongside the Kali Sticks are two brand new firearms in the form of the Fennec SMG and the CR-56 Amax AR.

How to get free Black Ops Cold War & Warzone pre-Season 1 bundles

With the announcement that Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War has been delayed, Activision and Treyarch also confirmed that players will be able to get their hands on two free bundles ahead of the first content drop. Here’s everything you need to know about what it includes and how to get it.

While Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War, which was set to bring brand new maps and integrate the game with Warzone, was originally set to come out on December 10, the developers have now announced a slew of new details about the first post-content season, including the fact that it will now launch on December 16.

During this deep dive, Treyarch also confirmed that Black Ops Cold War players will be able to get their hands on some new free bundles for the game before the season launches, presumably in order to help tide people over until the new content drop. Here’s how you can get your hands on both bundles.

Field Research and Certified Bundles

According to Activision, both bundles are set to include a number of different items to use in-game. For the Field Research bundle, players will be able to grab an Epic exclusive skin for Park, an Epic SMG weapon blueprint, an Epic Reticle, and Epic Calling Card and a Rare Weapon Charm.

The news of the bundles was announced when Activision confirmed that Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War had been delayed.

For the Certified bundle, players will get a similar lineup, except the skin will be for Garcia, the blueprint will be for a Rare Assault Rifle, and the Weapon Charm will be Epic. No Calling Card is included with this bundle.

Unfortunately, we don’t know much else about the bundle and we have no idea what they will look like exactly, as Activision didn’t end up releasing any images of them. Once they become available, we’ll update this article with them.

How to get both bundles for free

Luckily, players won’t have to do much of anything to get their hands on it. That being said, they won’t be given to everyone and you do have to do a simple task to get it. According to Activision, both bundles will be given to players who log-in to the game between December 8 at 10AM PST (1PM EST, 6PM GMT) and December 15 at 11PM PST (2AM EST, 7AM GMT on December 16).

To be clear, logging in simply means that you just have to open the game and get to the main menu. Playing a match isn’t required, although the chance of players opening the game without playing it is slim, to say the least.

That being said, it’s great that Treyarch is giving it away for free. Here’s hoping it’s good enough to hold people over until the new season.
