Activision and Infinity Ward have released a brand new trailer for Season 6 of Modern Warfare and Warzone, giving players their first glimpse at what’s coming to the multiplayer and battle royale.

All the talk in the Call of Duty community for the past several weeks has been about Black Ops Cold War, but until it releases on November 13, players still have one more new season of the current CoD title to look forward to.

The trailer for Season 6 released on September 22, offering a first look at some of the new content that’s on its way, including new Operators, one of the weapons, and what appears to be the subway system that had previously been leaked in Warzone.

When does Season 6 of Modern Warfare & Warzone release?

According to the trailer, the new season will be going live on Tuesday, September 29, once again as part of a massive game update. While the exact time for this patch has not yet been announced, they’ve usually been released at 11 PM PT, which is 2 AM ET the following morning, so to not disrupt the servers too much during peak hours.

What’s new in Season 6?

Warzone Subway

The entirety of the trailer takes place underground, in an undisclosed subway tunnel. Since this place hasn’t been seen before in multiplayer or Warzone, it’s safe to assume that it’s the very same one that had already been leaked for the BR.

It appears that the developers have indeed added a complete underground subway system to Verdansk, which would be the second major form of transportation they’ve introduced following the Cargo Train that was added at the start of S5.

While the exact details of this new addition weren’t announced, it’s likely to operate similar to the train in that players will be able to access the subway tunnels and use any moving cars to quickly traverse around the map.

During a brief moment in the video, a map was shown for this subway system, revealing that there will be seven stops in total on Verdansk, starting from the Airport, stretching up to the Gorengard Lumber Yard before coming down around Stadium and Downtown and wrapping back around Promenade, Train Station, and Tosk Bloc.

ActivisionHere’s the map for Warzone’s new subways system in Season 6.
  • M1 ⁠— Verdansk International Airport
  • M2 ⁠— Verdansk Stadium
  • M3 ⁠— Gorengard Lumber Yard
  • M4 ⁠— Downtown Tavorsk District
  • M5 ⁠— Barakett Promenade East
  • M6 ⁠— Verdansk Train Station
  • M7 ⁠— Torsk Bloc

We’ve even gotten a glimpse of what these stops will probably look like from the Call of Duty League’s Championship Weekend broadcast, during which they showed celebrations on Verdansk in honor of the winners, and a similar structure was spotted next to the Stadium that’s currently not on the map.

New weapon – AS VAL

It’s customary for every season in Modern Warfare to feature two brand new guns at the start, and it appears S6 will be no different. While only one of those two weapons was shown in the trailer, eagle-eyed CoD fans noticed it to be the AS VAL assault rifle, which Nikolai held at the very end.

How do they know it’s the AS VAL? Because gameplay footage of the new AR had also been previously leaked, by prominent dataminer BKTOOR, revealing it to have a pretty high fire-rate for rifles.

The second new gun wasn’t shown, but all indications are that it’ll either be the R700 sniper rifle, remastered from CoD 4, or the AA-12 shotgun from MW2. What’s likely to happen is one of those two will be released at the start, along with the AS VAL, and the other will be made available midway through the season.

Either way, all three will be completely free to all players since they’ll be part of the new Battle Pass’ free content package, so to unlock them, you’ll just have to either grind to the necessary tiers or purchase them.

New Operators: Farah & Nikolai

If you’ve played any of the Modern Warfare campaign, then these two characters should be very familiar to you. Farah is the founder of the Uszikstani Liberation Force and someone you work with closely throughout the story mode, while Nikolai is one of Captain Price’s long-time friends that you get to meet as well.

Activision revealed that the two are entering multiplayer and Warzone as Operators following the events that take place in the campaign, as they’re now focusing their efforts to stop Mr Z, the mysterious antagonist who’s trying to wreak havoc on Verdansk.

These two will come as part of the S6 Battle Pass – Farah right away at Tier 0, while Nikolai will be the Tier 100 Operator. Here’s a look at their first three variants that players will be able to customize:

That wraps up everything that we know so far about what’s coming to Modern Warfare and Warzone in Season 6, but there will definitely be a lot more that gets revealed in the coming days, such as the new maps, any other weapons, etc.

Best CR-56 AMAX loadouts for Warzone and Modern Warfare

The CR-56 AMAX is a great gun choice to utilize in Modern Warfare for those who value mobility. Here, we break down two of the strongest CR-56 loadouts you should be using. 

While the Fennec SMG has proved popular amongst those who favor the run and gun playstyle, the CR-56 AMAX gives players more ranged precision and damage for sacrificing speed. The Galil, now known as the CR-56 AMAX, aims to shake up the current assault rifle meta, giving players another option outside of the incredibly popular Grau 5.56 and M4A1 loadouts

The Galil dominated foes in the multiplayer battlefields of Black Ops 1, allowing players to kill targets in just three shots. As a result, this deadly assault rifle became popular for those that wanted to wrack up high kill counts. While the CR-56 AMAX has lost its original name, it still packs a real punch in both Modern Warfare and Warzone. In order to help you get the most out of the CR-56 AMAX, we’ve put together two loadouts that you can use to gain a competitive edge. 

Best CR-56 AMAX loadout for Warzone

Infinity Ward/DexertoBoost your ranged damage with these CR-56 AMAX attachments.
  • Monolithic Suppressor 
  • XRK Zodiac S440
  • VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 45 Round Mags

Unlike Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer maps, the vast frozen landscapes of Verdansk require players to test their medium to long-range shooting. While the initial dash for loot results in plenty of close-quarters firefights, you’ll also need a weapon that can effectively deliver lethal rounds at a distance should you wish to keep your enemies at bay. 

As a result, this loadout is all about pushing the CR-56 AMAX to its ranged limits, while also keeping your ADS speed to a minimum. First up is the Monolithic Suppressor and XRK Zodiac S440. These two attachments drastically increase your effective damage range, reduce the CR-56 AMAX’s recoil, and speed up its bullet travel time. While these attachments may increase your ADS speed, we think this loss is worth it, especially when you need to land those all-important ranged head and body shots. 

The VLK 3.0x Optic is great for a higher zoom level, giving you a greater edge when attacking from a distance, at a slight sacrifice of ADS speed.

The Commando Foregrip keeps the gun stable when aiming down sights and firing, while the XRK CR-56 Stippled Wrap greatly decreases your overall ADS time and sprint to fire speed. Not only will these attachments help keep your shots on target, they will also give you the ADS speed needed to be competitive in close-quarter fights.  

Lastly, the 45 Round Mags supply players with more than enough bullets to shred through even the most well-armored of foes. Having the extra rounds will also keep you from needing to reload every second, so if you wish to avoid any frustrating deaths, then make sure you equip this attachment. 

Best CR-56 AMAX loadout for Modern Warfare multiplayer

Infinity Ward/DexertoUse this loadout when you want to rival Modern Warfare’s close-quarter SMGs.
  • Monolithic Suppressor 
  • XRK Zodiac S440
  • CR-56 EXO
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 45 Round Mags

Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer favors close to medium range firefights, so this loadout is all about buffing the CR-56 AMAX’s ADS speed and lowering the gun’s recoil. 

The CR-56 EXO stock drastically lowers the CR-56 AMAX’s ADS speed while increasing your ADS strafe, allowing you to quickly deliver a highly accurate spray of bullets in just a blink of an eye. While this attachment won’t stop you from falling prey to the popular MP5 and Fennec loadouts, it will increase your odds of survival when encountering the SMGs. 

The XRK Zodiac S440, Commando Foregrip, and 45 Round Mags are the three most optimal attachments here, so make sure you build around these for a new loadout.
