Rumors have been flying about Call of Duty Modern Warfare title, but an Infinity Ward developer chose not to comment, responding instead with a cryptic message.

Call of Duty Black Ops 4 was the first CoD title to feature a battle royale mode, and now fans are wondering if the future installments will feature it too.

With Modern Warfare being developed by Infinity Ward instead of Treyarch, it isn’t a given that a BR will show up, but that hasn’t stopped the rumors from swirling.

ActivisionCall of Duty is coming back to Modern Warfare, but is a battle royale coming too?

What did the dev say?

The rumors first started with YouTuber ‘TheGamingRevolution’ saying that a mode was being worked on, claiming it was never originally planned but instead was being added as a last minute addition, according to his source.

Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, but now we have an actual response from Infinity Ward and it just might end up fueling the flames even more.

An Infinity Ward developer responded to a fan on Twitter who asked about the battle royale mode and the developer responded simply with a gif of Jim from The Office.

The fact that they are not giving a comment is just stoking the flames for the fans even more considering it’s not an outright denial or confirming, leaving a lot of wiggle room for there to actually be a BR.

It wouldn’t really be surprising if Modern Warfare has a battle royale mode as it’s still a mega-popular genre. 

With no hard confirmation either way, we have to take TheGamingRevolution’s word with a grain of salt and wait for official word from Infinity Ward.

Modern Warfare releases for PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 25, 2019.

Why Warzone streamers want NICKMERCS to delete his OP CR-56 AMAX video

Call of Duty: Warzone Season 6 doesn’t have a definitive meta and streamers apparently want to keep it that way, as they’ve asked NICKMERCS to hide his overpowered CR-56 AMAX loadout video.

NICKMERCS tries a lot of different guns and shares the best ones with his massive community. That’s especially useful now, following nerfs to the SP-R, because everyone is looking for a new medium-to-long-range weapon and streamers seem to want their preferred AR to remain a secret.

As the Kilo 141 and, to a lesser extent, even the classic M4-A1 have returned to prominence across Verdansk, the high-damage CR-56 AMAX is making the rounds among the game’s best. Unfortunately for those players, the secret might be out, as NICKMERCS made a video describing the gun as a Kilo replacement and shared the optimal class for the heavy-recoil weapon with his 3.05 million YouTube followers. 

Although the streamers likely don’t care and are just joking, it’s a funny testament to what a deadly dynamo the AMAX can be in Season 6 when wielded by the right hands.

NICKMERC’s CR-56 AMAX loadout for Warzone

It’s not exactly clear why this class is getting so much more attention than his original Season 5 setup, but it’s possible that swapping out a Merc Foregrip for the Ranger gives the gun enough recoil stability to make it a force on Verdansk.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor.
  • Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440.
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic.
  • Underbarrel: Ranger Foregrip.
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags.

In response to the MFAM’s leader popularizing the niche AR, popular professional Warzone player, JoeWo, lovingly asked NICKMERCS to delete his video.

In replies, NICKMERCS and Swagg’s teammate during their championship run at the $100,000 Toronto Ultra Warzone tournament, DiazBiffle, seconded the motion.

As of yet, there has been no response to JoeWo’s promise that he “will do anything, literally anything” for NICKMERCS to delete the video. But the Warzone star hasn’t posted the video on Twitter, so maybe he did take JoeWo up on the offer.

Still, for those thinking they discovered a cheat code with this loadout, a word of caution: while the CR-56 AMAX does deal a tremendous amount of damage, its recoil is very difficult to control.

That gives the AR a steep learning curve, but one that, when mastered, could provide massive dividends.
