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.

Black Ops Cold War leak reveals new Christmas-themed Nuketown

The holidays are right around the corner and it appears as though Black Ops Cold War will be getting into the festive spirit as new leaks have revealed a limited-time version of Nuketown ‘84 on the way.

Nuketown has seen a number of complete makeovers throughout the years. What started as a simple, close-quarters map in Black Ops 1, has been revamped in many unique ways. From a futuristic remake to the latest 80’s themed design and plenty more.

The fan-favorite map isn’t stopping there, however. New leaks and even a quirky bug have all pointed towards a festive takeover coming into effect very soon. There might even be multiple versions of the battlefield all in-game at the one time.

Christmas is coming to Black Ops Cold War in a big way. Not only will Nuketown be covered with festive decorations, but there also appears to be a night-time variant coming as well.

From a leaked preview image of the Nuketown ‘84 map, we’re given our first look at the map from an all-new perspective. Rather than the beaming hot sun lighting things up, Nuketown looks a little different here. A dark sky keeps things mellow while Christmas lights aim to get you in the holiday spirit.

A few Christmas reefs are scattered around while tinsel is layered across almost every surface. From the one angle, however, there doesn’t seem to be any kind of snow or other major difference. Purely just decorations on an otherwise standard Nuketown ‘84.

While the leaked image comes from a reliable source that’s revealed a wide array of content in the past, there’s more to it than just that. Oddly enough, a bizarre glitch from November 25 actually let players see the Christmas decorations in-game for a split moment.

The yet unannounced version of the map randomly came into effect mid-game for one lucky player. They were caught off guard by the interior of a house but the decorations remained in place, even after death.

That should clear up any caution as to whether the Christmas-themed variant is real or not. While there’s no date locked in for this holiday takeover, we can obviously expect to see it in a matter of weeks as December draws to an end.

Nuketown seems to be the only map getting a festive makeover for now. Though there could always be some visual changes on the way for Warzone as well. We’ll have to wait and see.
