Call of Duty YouTuber TheGamingRevolution claims to have revealed new information about Modern Warfare season two, including brand new quests and details about the still-unconfirmed battle royale mode.

Following the path set by Fortnite and their battle pass, many other multiplayer titles have followed suit – splitting their new additions into ‘seasons’ and dropping plenty of new content like maps, cosmetics, and challenges to play through.

For Modern Warfare, the first season kicked off back in December, adding the iconic map of Crash. The end date for the season has since been pushed back, and while some fans might be questioning why, and what they can look forward to, CoD leaker TheGamingRevolution has claimed to have some early information.

Modern Warfare is the most played game of this console generation.

In his newest upload, the YouTuber claimed to have gotten his hands on the in-game strings that reveal what has been added by the developers. His first reveal came in the form of four new quest lines that have challenges inside – including one that involves running players over with vehicles.

Aside from that, TheGamingRevolution also noted that he had some new information about the supposed battle royale mode inside Modern Warfare – claiming to have been sent a loading screen for when the mode actually becomes available.

He also claimed that a source within Infinity Ward explained that the battle royale has been “delayed” in line with the season one end date as it “needs more time.” However, that doesn’t mean that it is absolutely coming with season two. The sourced noted that it is a possibility, but the BR could also come in season three, or be canceled altogether if it doesn’t “release soon.”

While there’s no solid information on what maps could come in season two, there are some new modes seemingly coming, as logos for One in the Chamber and All or Nothing have been added to the game’s files. 

As for other content, the YouTuber speculated that there would be a new operator in the form of the Ghost of Verdansk as his face and logo has been appearing on multiplayer maps. There could also be two weapons as well, with an SMG, LMG, and Ballistic Knife surfacing in different files. 

As ever, while the YouTuber has proven to have good information in the past, it’s always worth taking everything with a pinch of salt until it is available in-game.

After all, Infinity Ward could very well change their minds depending on a number of factors – including scrapping things altogether because they’ve been leaked. We’ll just have to wait and see.

The QBZ-83 is may not be as strong or as accurate as the AK-47, but its superior mobility and handling make it a great pick. Here all the perks, attachments, and equipment you need to push this assault rifle to its peak. 

Whether you’re looking to level up every gun to grab those ultra-rare camos or just wanting to give the QBZ-83 a go, then you’ll want to use this loadout. This assault rifle is often overlooked by a lot of players and it’s currently one of the least used guns in the assault rifle category. However, if you’re willing to put in the effort into learning the QBZ, you’ll find that it is a pretty well-round rifle. 

This loadout boosts the QBZ-83’s already great speed, but also increases the gun’s accuracy and firepower. If you’re after an AR that can go toe to toe with the game’s SMGs, then look no further. In order to help you get the most out of the QBZ-83, we’ve put together a reliable loadout you can use to get those deadly Scorestreaks.

Best QBZ-83 loadout for Black Ops Cold War

The recent FFAR 1 and M16 nerfs have made the QBZ-83 a more viable option.
  • Muzzle: Infantry Compensator 
  • Barrel: 15.5” Reinforced Heavy
  • Underbarrel:Foregrip
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap 
  • Stock: Raider Stock


  • 1911


  • Stimshot
  • Semtex
  • Field Mic


  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket + Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Assassin + Scavenger 
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Ghost


  • Perk Greed

Due to the QBZ-83 having a very clear default sight, we’ve saved the attachment slot to make a much more comfy build. The Infantry Compensator and Foregrip help control both the gun’s horizontal and vertical recoil. This enables you to remain accurate at medium to long ranges. 

Adding to this is the 15.5” Heavy. Not only does this attachment increase the AR’s bullet velocity by a significant 40%, but it also increases the gun’s damage range by 100%. Whether you’re planning to play on the game’s bigger maps or just wanting to increase your kill potential, then the Reinforced Heavy is a must. 

Rounding things off at the bottom, is the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raider Stock. These attachments increase ADS and sprint to fire time, allowing you to aggressively rush your foes without having to worry about sluggish performance. 

In terms of equipment, the standard Stimshot, Semtex, and Field Mic have been chosen. These items will keep you on your feet and enable you to get the drop on any potential targets.

The QBZ-83’s speed and firepower makes for some blisteringly fast kills.

This loadout uses Perk Greed, which allows players to take six perks. The combination of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask will keep you safe from any explosives and noxious gas. These perks are important for most loadouts, but especially hyper-aggressive ones that prefer the run and gun approach to combat.

Meanwhile, Assassin reveals high priority targets and enables you to get the drop on any enemies who are on killstreaks. Scavenger also replenishes the QBZ-83’s ammo from fallen players, so you’ll never have to hunt for another gun when your ammo is low. 

Lastly, Ghost and Ninja keep your movements hidden from prying eyes and enable you to go for those sneaky flanks. After all, this loadout favors both close to mid-range firefights, so don’t be afraid to get into the very thick of a fight.
