Leaked Black Ops 4 gameplay footage shows TWO new powerful weapons coming soon

Two brand new weapons will be making their way into Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 soon, according to newly uncovered leaks.

The two new weapons are the Ruger Mini-14 semi-automatic sniper rifle and the DemoHammer melee, which appears to be some sort of a combination of a shotgun and a giant hammer.

Information about both of these weapons was discovered in game files and leaked out on February 21 by Reddit user ‘Joshwoocool’, including short video clips showcasing both of the weapons in action.

While some are speculating that the sniper rifle shown in the leaks is just a cosmetic variant of the SDM that’s already in the game, the leaked file itself is titled ‘core_frontend_sniper_mini14,’ pretty much confirming the weapon as brand new.

As for the DemoHammer, although it’s shown to include a chamber for shotgun shells, the name of its file (core_frontend_melee_demohammer) confirms that the weapon will be of the melee category. 

Of course, being that all of what’s been provided about these two new weapons have been from leaks, it’s best to treat the information as speculation until they’re officially confirmed by Treyarch and Activision.

However, judging by the content that’s been leaked, it’s pretty safe to assume that these weapons will be added to Black Ops 4 at some point.

The video themselves are professionally produced and appear very similar to the clips shown in the past for new weapon announcements.

There are still questions that remain about these two new weapons, such as when will they be released and how will players be able to acquire them.

Make sure to monitor @DexertoINTEL and our Dexerto Call of Duty page as we will post any new information about the new weapons as it becomes available.

Black Ops Cold War leak reveals new Christmas-themed Nuketown

The holidays are right around the corner and it appears as though Black Ops Cold War will be getting into the festive spirit as new leaks have revealed a limited-time version of Nuketown ‘84 on the way.

Nuketown has seen a number of complete makeovers throughout the years. What started as a simple, close-quarters map in Black Ops 1, has been revamped in many unique ways. From a futuristic remake to the latest 80’s themed design and plenty more.

The fan-favorite map isn’t stopping there, however. New leaks and even a quirky bug have all pointed towards a festive takeover coming into effect very soon. There might even be multiple versions of the battlefield all in-game at the one time.

Christmas is coming to Black Ops Cold War in a big way. Not only will Nuketown be covered with festive decorations, but there also appears to be a night-time variant coming as well.

From a leaked preview image of the Nuketown ‘84 map, we’re given our first look at the map from an all-new perspective. Rather than the beaming hot sun lighting things up, Nuketown looks a little different here. A dark sky keeps things mellow while Christmas lights aim to get you in the holiday spirit.

A few Christmas reefs are scattered around while tinsel is layered across almost every surface. From the one angle, however, there doesn’t seem to be any kind of snow or other major difference. Purely just decorations on an otherwise standard Nuketown ‘84.

While the leaked image comes from a reliable source that’s revealed a wide array of content in the past, there’s more to it than just that. Oddly enough, a bizarre glitch from November 25 actually let players see the Christmas decorations in-game for a split moment.

The yet unannounced version of the map randomly came into effect mid-game for one lucky player. They were caught off guard by the interior of a house but the decorations remained in place, even after death.

That should clear up any caution as to whether the Christmas-themed variant is real or not. While there’s no date locked in for this holiday takeover, we can obviously expect to see it in a matter of weeks as December draws to an end.

Nuketown seems to be the only map getting a festive makeover for now. Though there could always be some visual changes on the way for Warzone as well. We’ll have to wait and see.
