Modern Warfare leakers have revealed an in-game look at a classic Call of Duty sniper rifle, the R700, and claimed it could be added to the game in Season 5.

With Infinity Ward bringing back weapons such as the Galil and Vector in recent seasons, it now looks as if a classic sniper rifle from past titles might also be added for Modern Warfare and Warzone players.

Dataminers have revealed an early look at this new bolt action rifle and claimed that the R700 might be one of the next weapons introduced in Season 5.

The R700, which first made its appearance in CoD 4, is known for its incredible one-shot damage potential and could rival weapons like the HDR and AX-50 in Modern Warfare and Warzone.

An early look of the new weapon was leaked by BKTOOR, who revealed that it was still unfinished despite being added to the game files.

Although the new rifle is still being tested, the CoD leaker was still hopeful that the R700 might be released at some point during Season 5.

However, with the sniper still unfinished and Season 5 kicking off on August 5, it is possible that the R700 could be added later in the season.

“First look at the bolt action R700, not complete module.” the data miner shared, “Hope it’s a mid-season weapon.”

While it has been classed a sniper rifle in past Call of Duty titles, it could also be moving into the Marksman Rifle category in Modern Warfare, similar to the Kar98k.

This new weapon is still yet to be confirmed by Infinity Ward and players will likely have to wait until August 5 before the MW devs reveal more bout the upcoming season.

Weird Warzone glitch forces players into hearing never-ending rock music

Warzone players have been rocking out to the game’s new vehicle music as they drive through the frozen fields of Verdansk. However, for some, these catchy tunes never end.

There’s no denying that Warzone Season 6 has had its fair share of problems. Aside from the train station teething problems and return of the ‘demon gun’ texture glitch, there have been some new additions to the seemingly ever-growing bugfix list.

So far, Activision has had to fix an overpowered bug that allowed the AS VAL to shoot through unlimited walls, a game-breaking unlimited Stim glitch, and now Modern Warfare fans are reporting a rock and roll related problem. 

While Warzone’s new music tracks certainly liven up your drive time commutes across Verdansk, they can also pose a risk to your game-winning plays. This is particularly true when the music in question doesn’t actually stop. The continuous blare of heavy rock certainly gets us pumped in games like DOOM, but it really doesn’t help in FPS titles like Warzone where you need to hear enemy footsteps.

What is the Warzone music glitch? 

The addition of playable vehicle music certainly isn’t a new feature in Warzone – in fact, players have been able to equip certain CoD related tracks since Season 5. However, music fans can now listen to their favorite tracks from the likes of DMX, Skrillex, Jack Harlow, and iconic themes from across the Call of Duty series. 

Unfortunately, these tunes have caused a rather interesting and mildly infuriating glitch. The bug seems to happen when you or any of your squadmates have any of the game’s War Tracks equipped and enter a vehicle. While this bug may not be that bad when listening to the game’s quieter tracks, things can get incredibly frustrating when the heavy metal Juggernaut theme plays on a loop.

You may be tempted to blow up your vehicle or drive it off the nearest cliff edge, but even this won’t stop the never-ending audio. Some players have reported that they still hear vehicle music, even when they have the audio option turned off in the game’s settings. “The rock music won’t stop, even after getting out of the vehicle. To top it off, my teammate and I had already turned the audio off before the game,” says one frustrated player

“After it just wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t hear A THING, we even destroyed the vehicle in hopes it would quiet down. Ultimately, we just disconnected when we couldn’t take it anymore.” Some Warzone players have even reported that they managed to get to the final ring with the same heavy rock track blaring down their earphones.

It seems the Juggernaut War Track is the most common offender.

Fortunately, some crafty players have discovered that you can fix this pesky audio issue by selecting the Black Ops music pack from the War Tracks menu. Meanwhile, if you encounter the problem mid-game, simply enter another vehicle in the hopes that it fixes the never-ending audio loop. 

There have even been reports that constantly getting in and out of the offending vehicle will eventually fix the issue. Of course, your experience may vary and some of these fixes may not work. Warzone Season 6 certainly seems to be off to a rocky start and it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Activision officially fixes this audio issue in a future patch.
