A host of Call of Duty data miners have revealed weapons from Modern Warfare’s game files, that are potentially set to be added in the upcoming Season 4. 

With Modern Warfare’s fourth season set to begin in early June, Call of Duty players are eagerly anticipating everything Infinity Ward coming next. Each season brings with it a plethora of new content, including new weapons.

Original leaks came from Reddit u/JeaneJWE, who shared information they had received pertaining to a host of weapons found in Modern Warfare’s game files. The information they provide relates to the APC9 SMG, Vector SMG, HK G28 DMR, Galil AR and XM109 semi-auto rifle.

Vector and Galil coming to Modern Warfare?

When it comes to the weapons players can expect to see in Season 4, the Redditor explains that the APC9 is pretty far down the list because it has been present in the game files since launch.

“Therefore, I believe that Season 4 will launch with the Vector and Galil as two new weapons,” they speculate, “and the G28 will arrive later as the midseason weapon.”

To compound these game files, reputable CoD leaker and YouTuber ‘TheGamingRevolution’ has revealed an early look at some of the weapons, giving us an idea of how far along the development line some of the weapons really are.

Like the Redditor, TGR indicates that the Galil is very likely to come in Season 4, even providing audio of the weapon from an anonymous source. Similar footage is provided for the Vector, an SMG that has featured in multiple Call of Duty titles, including Infinity Ward’s CoD: Ghosts.

Assuming both weapons come to Modern Warfare, they will also be available in Warzone in the form of loadout drops.

The fact that both weapons are available to view through game files indicates they are almost ready for launch. Obviously the news remains unconfirmed, and there is no guarantee that any weapons in the game files will ever make the final game.

How the Galil looked in the original Black Ops.

What is interesting to note is that the Galil has never featured in an Infinity Ward game. It has featured in every iteration of Treyarch’s Black Ops series, but was scrapped from 2016’s Modern Warfare Remastered.

It certainly looks like the Vector and the Galil are set to be added to Modern Warfare, but things can change quickly in the development process. We’ll have to wait for official confirmation from Infinity Ward.

When will Warzone solos return?

The normal BR Solos are not available in Warzone, with Buy Back Solos and Mini Royale Solos taking its place. When will the normal solo mode come back? Well, here’s what we know.

Ever since Warzone released back in March, a number of different modes have been added alongside the normal quads, trios, and duos modes.

You’ve had things like Juggernaut Royale, Buy Back Quads, and even Zombies Royale to celebrate the spooky Halloween period. However, some players just want the normal battle royale mode that they know and love to be available.

Currently, if you just want to play the normal BR mode – where you hop in, loot, use the gulag if you die, and try to be the last player standing – you can only do so in quads, trios, and duos. It’s not available for solos, and players are asking when it’ll be coming back.

Warzone is full of different modes, not just the normal BR formula.

When will BR Solos return to Warzone?

Well, the answer to that question is… it’s up to Raven Software and Activision. They make the call on when the playlists get updated and when things are rotated in and out.

Currently, solo players can only play Buy Back solos – which takes place in Verdansk – and Mini Royale Solos – which takes place on Rebirth Island. The latter of which was rumored to only be lasting until early January, but we’ve blown past that now.

The next big update that looks to be coming to Black Ops Cold War will drop on February 4 – bringing a new Zombies map with it. That could also see major changes come to Warzone, too. However, if enough players kick up a stink about BR solos still being missing, that could push the devs to change whatever plans they’ve got and bring it back sooner rather than later.

Warzone’s solo mode has become incredibly popular since it was added.

Are Warzone solos gone for good?

Whenever something exits the playlist, some fans immediately ask if it’s been scrapped altogether. And no, that’s rarely ever the case.

While modes like Buy Back and Mini Royale add a nice change of pace, sometimes, you just have to stick with the classic battle royale formula. So, don’t worry too much about it possibly being removed forever. That’s really unlikely to be the case.

So, everything points to us seeing normal solos mode return in the near future, it’s just a matter of when Raven and Activision decide to flip the switch and bring it back.

If anything changes, we’ll keep this post updated so you’ll know when you’ll be getting your fix of normal Warzone solos next.
