Modern Warfare 2 players can finally get their hands on the Intervention sniper in Season 3, under a new name and fresh look.

On March 28, a reputable Modern Warfare 2 leaker revealed 13 new weapons, spanning from Season 3 to 5. The leaker claimed these would be the final remaining weapons before CoD 2023. Some classic weapons mentioned included the Tec-9, FAMAS, and Intervention sniper.

The Intervention is a slow-firing, hard-hitting, bolt-action sniper rifle that first appeared in the original Modern Warfare 2. The gun went on to feature in two other main-line series entries, one of which was Modern Warfare 2019.
