Call of Duty leaker and YouTuber TheGamingRevolution has revealed the first in-game look at a classified Modern Warfare light-machine gun that will be released in Season 3.

The much-anticipated release of Modern Warfare’s third season brought many changes such as new maps, operators, and even some new weapons.

Infinity Ward had much more in-store for Season 3, however, revealing that even more maps and content would be released over the course of the new season.

The ‘Classified’ LMG was previously teased before the release of Season 3.

The SKS and the Renetti were introduced on April 8, and Infinity Ward teased that they would also be adding a classified LMG at some point in the season.

Modern Warfare leaker TheGamingRevolution shared a short gameplay clip of the unreleased LMG which is currently listed under the code name ‘LM-MKILO3.’

The YouTuber, along with many CoD fans, claimed that from the short clip that was shared, the upcoming LMG looks incredibly similar to one of the Modern Warfare series’ classic weapons, the M249 SAW.

Topic starts at 0:26 for mobile users.

The M249 SAW has only been added to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and the remastered title’s multiplayer in the past, although it has made its appearance in the MW2 and Black Ops campaign.

While the unreleased weapon’s details weren’t fully rendered out in the leaked gameplay, many were still confident that the iconic LMG looked set to make its return.

Infinity Ward
Many CoD fans suspect that the M249 SAW could soon be added to Modern Warfare.

TheGamingRevolution hinted that the M249 could be released as early as April 28, as Infinity Ward has announced a significant update will be added on that date.

As is the case with all leaks, the information surrounding the classified LMG is not yet confirmed by Infinity Ward and is still subject to change before the weapon’s release in Season 3.

Now that the Black Ops Cold War Beta is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, more and more people are starting to give their opinion on the game so far. Warzone player and streamer Aydan has also chimed in his opinions on it, and needless to say, it’s not all positive.

With the second weekend of the Black Ops Cold War Beta starting on October 15, 2020, almost everyone who wants to play the game has the ability to do so. While it’s technically not open to all Xbox and PC players quite yet, tons of people have jumped in, played a number of different matches and provided feedback – which makes sense, given it’s a pre-release version.

Even since the first weekend, more competitive players like Shroud, Aches, Scump, Drift0r, and others have talked about what they like and dislike about the game and so far, it seems like a fairly mixed bag. Now, another player has joined the fray.

Warzone Twitch streamer and YouTuber Aydan took to Twitter to offer feedback about the Black Ops Cold War Beta, and there are a couple of things he would like to see addressed.

According to him, while the movement in the game is fun overall, he wishes there were a different system in place other than sliding due to the fact that last year’s entry, the highly-debated Modern Warfare (2019), had the same feature.

In addition, he also complained about dropshotting being ineffective in the game, claiming that laying down and standing up is way too slow.

“I don’t necessarily want dropshotting to be effective in all gunfights, but laying down in general is way to slow,” Aydan said in a reply to another user.

It’s not all bad for Aydan, however; In a reply to his original tweet, he said that the gun balancing, wildcard system, and killstreaks in the beta are all fun, but that overall he would give it a 6/10 if he had to rate it now and 7 or 8/10 once the full thing releases.

Treyarch is constantly fine-tuning the game, so it wouldn’t be surprising if the developer makes similar changes before the final version. That being said, it remains to be seen just how much it changes.
