New Modern Warfare SMG accidentally made available in-game

We may already have our first look at a Season 4 weapon as one Modern Warfare player accidentally loaded into a game with an unknown SMG.

With each new Modern Warfare season comes new maps, cosmetics, and even powerful weapons. The Call of Duty title’s third season kicked off on April 8 and delivered the KS semi-auto carbine, along with the 9mm Renetti pistol.

An additional LMG was also added after it leaked in-game before its official release. History appears to have repeated itself, as another weapon has slipped through the cracks ahead of Modern Warfare’s next content drop.

Modern Warfare’s third season has introduced three new weapons thus far.

In an already SMG-dominated meta, it looks as though another powerful addition could be on the way in Modern Warfare’s Season 4 update.

Loading into a game of Infected on May 11, one lucky player was randomly given an unknown SMG upon spawning. There was no trickery or glitching involved. The infected game type randomly hands out weapons and this particular instance provided a yet to be revealed SMG.

‘SM_CHARLIE9’ is the placeholder name for the weapon and this particular variant came equipped with 9mm Parabellum rounds.

How powerful will the potential Season 4 weapon be?

With 30 bullets in each magazine, this fast-firing SMG appears to be lethal from up close but difficult to control at range. Perhaps that is the balance of the new weapon in general, or the recoil has been exacerbated by the Parabellum attachment.

Regardless, the reload speed is among the fastest we’ve seen in the SMG category. Barely a second after initiating a reload, you’ll be shooting again with an extremely rapid rate of fire.

Damage is impossible to gauge without seeing the weapon in action against other players, but it certainly looks to pack a punch from up close.

The MP7 SMG is one of the most popular Warzone weapons but could it soon be dethroned?

While this SMG appeared in-game at random, there’s no telling when it may be released, if at all. It could be released towards the end of Season 3, or it may never see the light of day. With a fully-functioning in-game model, however, it’s likely that we see more of this weapon sooner than later.

Season 4 is just weeks away. Here’s when it’s expected to launch and everything that should be coming along with the next major content drop.

Best Type 63 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Type 63 is capable of dishing out some incredible damage thanks to its methodical firing pattern and excellent precision. Here are all the attachments you should be using when running and gunning with the Type 63. 

If you’re a fan of Black Ops Cold War’s Tactical Rifle class or a player that prefers a more methodical approach to combat, then the Type 63 is one weapon you’ll want to focus on leveling up. While burst fire weapons like the M16 and AUG continue to dominate the game, there have been a number of players picking up this reliable rifle. 

Despite its slower rate of fire, this tactical rifle is capable of killing an enemy in just two shots (one body shot and one headshot). The Type 63 is a great option for those that want the damage of a sniper, but wish to be more active in their playstyle. If you have a good trigger finger and decent aim, you’ll definitely want to add the Type 63 to your collection. 

In order to help you get the most kills with the Type 63, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

The Type 63 is one of the most lethal weapons in the entire game.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Type 63 in Black Ops Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex 
  • Spetsnaz Compensator 
  • 18.3” Strike Team
  • KGB Target Designator 
  • Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip
  • 30 RND
  • Gru Elastic Wrap
  • KGB Pad

While you can still make a decent Type 63 loadout without the extra three attachment slots given by the Gunfighter wildcard, the extra kit makes this build extremely comfy. First up is the Millstop Reflex. This is one of the only optics available that doesn’t clutter the screen or provide a great deal of magnification. 

While the 2.0x and 4.0x optics may give you greater precision on the game’s larger maps and modes, the vast majority favor close-quarter engagements. This is also why the 18.3” Strike Team barrel has been chosen. This handy attachment increases your fire rate by 11%, allowing you to get out more shots onto the target. 

It also increases your damage by 9%. While this may seem like an incremental increase, it does make a noticeable difference when combined with a higher rate of fire. To alleviate the Type 63’s horizontal/vertical recoil, we’ve attached both the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip.

The Type 63 may not be the most popular gun, but its high DPS makes it a worthy pick.

These attachments make the Type 63 incredibly accurate across all ranges, allowing you to beam opponents with laser-like precision. The bullets will always form in a tight circle around your target, so there’s no need to wrestle with any recoil. Simply point and shoot. 

As you may know by now, visibility in Black Ops Cold War can be rather poor. Even if you follow our visibility guide, there will still be times where you get caught out by pesky head glitches. Fortunately, the KGB Target Designator adds 60% Reveal Distance when aiming down sights. 

The Gru Elastic Wrap is one of the most important attachments as it increases ADS time (30%), Flinch Resistance (90%), and enables aiming while going prone. Combine this with the Sprint to Fire and additional Aim Walking Movement Speed of the KGB Pad, and you have an incredibly mobile rifle that is capable of blistering fast kill times.
