Modern Warfare’s major Season 4 content drop is right around the corner but a handful of upcoming weapons have already slipped through the cracks in brand new gameplay leaks.

As anticipation builds for Modern Warfare’s fourth seasonal update, easter eggs and teasers have been scattered throughout Multiplayer and Warzone. While only time will tell exactly what’s in store for Wednesday, June 3, a number of critical leaks have begun to appear in-game.

A May 15 leak revealed new guns the Vector and Galil. However, brand new footage from a May 27 leak has showcased just how far along the new guns truly are, alongside first looks at two other weapons that could be coming in Season 4 as well.

Akimbo Blades & Rytek AMR Sniper

Melee weapons haven’t been the biggest focus in the last few seasons, but new leaks have revealed Akimbo Blades in-game already. This duel-wielding unlock gives players two arm-length swords to slash away with. Animations come through extremely fast, meaning these could take down enemies in a flash.

Additionally, a new Rytek AMR Sniper was on display throughout the gameplay snippet. This weapon comes with five round magazines and virtually no recoil based on the early-glimpse. Each shot sends out a powerful thud at roughly half-second intervals though there’s no telling just how much damage they deliver.

New looks at the Vector and Galil

While fans have been awaiting the release of the Vector after a series of early leaks, it appears as though the weapon has undergone a name change. According to Redditor ‘JeaneJWE’ the Vector is no longer. Instead, the gun that has appeared in multiple CoD titles over the years will soon be known as the Fennec.

Bullets spring from the chamber just as rapidly as the classic SMG. The design also seems to have remained mostly intact as well, even down to its circular iron sights.

The Galil, appearing as ‘AL_GALIMA’ in-game, is another Assault Rifle presumably set to release throughout Season 4. Also having appeared in previous releases like Black Ops 1, the returning weapon looks just as powerful. Development might not be quite as far along for this particular model, however, as leaked gameplay showed a pure white, undetailed version of the gun.

There’s no telling when each of these weapons may release throughout Season 4. Some could come as early as next week at the very start of the season. Others could be deployed midway through or even further towards the end.

Keep your eyes peeled in the build-up to the next major content drop as Season 4 launches on Wednesday, June 3.

CoD streamer stunned after winning Warzone match despite dying

Popular Twitch streamer its_iron was stunned after he managed to pick up an extremely lucky win during his Warzone broadcast, despite dying in the final 1v1 duel for the victory.

Picking up wins in Call of Duty’s battle royale, Warzone, can prove to be quite challenging for even the best of players, as you have to outlast 150 players in a single match to come out on top.

However, one Warzone streamer its_iron managed to pick up a bizarre victory, even surprising himself after somehow winning the battle royale match when he had been downed by his final opponent.

During his November 27 Warzone broadcast, Its_iron had attempted to run the final player over with his cargo truck, but they had managed to explode the vehicle just in time with an airstrike killstreak, downing the streamer’s character in the process.

With the opponent running towards him to confirm the kill, the streamer had already admitted defeat and began praising the player for his clever tactic to counter his idea. “What a play, good stuff,” he admitted, thinking he had lost the Warzone match, “I can’t even be upset that at that one, heck of a play.”

However, as the Twitch streamer had picked up a self-revive Kit earlier in the game, the game did not end when he went down, and he was shocked to realize that he had actually won the game when he looked back at his screen.

“I never even saw him call in the [airstrike] either” he added, before reading his chat and discovering he picked up the win, “I won? No…he killed himself with the airstrike?”

Despite securing the win, the streamer revealed he did not feel as if he had earned it, adding that the other player had deserved it instead. “I feel bad, that’s unfortunate. I don’t feel like I won that,” he said.

While the airstrike initially worked well against the streamer, his final opponent was likely unaware of the second bombing run and eager to secure the kill before its_iron could use his self-revive to get back in the fight.
