Two new weapons have been added in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare as part of the Season One content launch, and we’ve got everything there is to know about them so far, including images, how they function, and how to unlock them.
The release of Season One in Modern Warfare is the biggest post-release content launch in any Call of Duty game ever, adding several new maps, modes, weapons and much more.
The two new weapons are the RAM-7 assault rifle and Holger-26 light machine gun, the first two guns to be added since the game first released on October 25.
Just as Activision promised several weeks ago, both weapons are available for players to unlock for free simply by leveling up the Battle Pass.

However, those who do want to instantly obtain one or both of these weapons can do so by purchasing their way up the Battle Pass to each gun’s specific Tier.
RAM-7 assault rifle
According to its official description, the Ram-7 is a “fully automated Bullpup Assault Rifle with integrated Picatinny Rails at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock.”
Seeing as previous Bullpup weapons such as the FAMAS and AUG have traditionally been powerful in Call of Duty, the Ram-7 could also prove to be viable in the damage department, especially if it’s fully automatic.
Furthermore, the gun does come outfitted with Picatinny Rails, which will allow players to heavily customize it and tailor it to their play-style.
As for how to unlock it, the weapon is available upon reaching Tier 31 of the Season 1 Battle Pass’ free content stream, meaning you don’t have to purchase the Pass to unlock this weapon.
Activision officially describe the Holger-26 as “LMG spec of the Holger model rifle, with integrated sight rail and drum magazine for additional ammunition carrying capacity.”
The other four LMGs in Modern Warfare are all pretty strong and viable, especially in large-scale modes like Ground War, so the Holger-26 should follow suit, especially with its extended ammo capacity thanks to the built-in drum mag.
Most players should be able to unlock this weapon pretty quickly, as it’s available at Tier 15 of the free portion of the Battle Pass.
Faster ways of unlocking the two new weapons
While grinding the game and leveling up the Battle Pass is one way of unlocking the two new weapons, there are alternative methods that are faster, albeit not free.
One way is to buy the Battle Pass Bundle, which instantly unlocks the first 20 Tiers, and, with it, the Holger-26 LMG. You can then purchase the next 11 Tiers at $1.50 each to unlock the RAM-7.
There is also, of course, the option to just purchase the whole Battle Pass outright, which would cost about $150 but would unlock all of the Tiers and rewards at once.
