Two new weapons – the APC9 and AN-94 – have been teased in the Modern Warfare and Warzone Season 5 trailer as Infinity Ward gear up for the launch of their games’ next chapter.

At the start of every season in Modern Warfare, the developers have released two brand new weapons for both multiplayer and Warzone, and Season 5 stands to be no exception.

That said, determining which guns would make their debut in Season 5 was nothing more than a guessing game until Activision finally released a sneak peek trailer on July 30.

While the video doesn’t outright reveal what the weapons will be, eagle-eyed fans spotted them being used by the new Shadow Company Operators, since they definitely don’t look like anything that’s currently in the game.

The image above, which is a piece of promotional artwork for the new Shadow Company, shows what players believe will be the two guns introduced in Season 5. The first is a submachine gun in the hands of the two closer characters, which could very well the APC9.

Created by Brügger & Thomet, the APC9 is an SMG that’s similar to the UMP in that it can deliver a quick and powerful punch from short-to-mid-range distances.

This isn’t the first time this SMG has been linked with Modern Warfare; its existence in the game files was leaked all the way back in November, and it seems that Infinity Ward have decided now is the time to actually add it.

Following the Season 5 trailer, Modern Warfare leaker, BKTOOR, has shared some early gameplay of this new SMG ahead of its expected release on August 5.

The brief clip reveals an in-game look at the APC9 on Cheshire Park, however, it is unclear just how it will stack up against guns such as the Mp7 or Mp5.

The next new weapon, which can be seen held by the Operator that’s farthest from the camera in the first image above, appears to be a remade version of the AN-94, an iconic assault rifle that’s been featured in all four Black Ops titles.

Its distinct curved magazine, two-part barrel, and long body are all recognizable from the trailer, and it makes even more sense considering that this AR, much like the APC9, was found in the back-end files months ago.

The only likely difference between this new 2020 version and past models will probably be the name, as Infinity Ward have always changed what their new guns are called even if they’re just remakes of old ones.

Infinity WardSeason 5’s new Shadow Company Operators can be seen holding weapons that strongly resemble the AN-94.

In fact, one leaker on Reddit claimed to have found the reload animations for the AN-94, which he showed by applying them to a Grau and recording the result.

While all of this is the likeliest scenario, it won’t be set in stone until Activision and Infinity Ward fully reveal the details of the upcoming season, which will also include at least one new multiplayer map, three new Operators, and more.

It won’t be long until we find out for sure, however, as Season 5 of Modern Warfare and Warzone is set to launch on Wednesday, August 5, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Bizarre Black Ops Cold War exploit completely removes sprint-fire delay

A strange exploit has been found with the Gung-Ho perk in Black Ops Cold War, which removes the sprint-fire delay from all weapons in-game.

As with other online multiplayer shooters, Call of Duty players, typically, have to have quick reaction speed in order to win gunfights and pick up kills against the enemy team.

While this reaction time can be difficult to improve, some players have found another way to gain an advantage over their opponents with a bug that allows you to fire the first few bullets even earlier.

This exploit was found with the Gung-Ho perk, which allows players to shoot their weapons while sprinting. The Cold War perk has been a go-to for those who love to run and gun, but this new bug completely cuts out the time it takes to start firing.

One Redditor u/b3nb0i shared this unusual glitch with the perk, revealing that, with the help of lethal equipment such as semtex, it’s possible to cancel the sprint-to-fire delay on a gun.

Usually, even with the Gung-Ho perk equipped, there is a small delay in the time it takes to straighten the weapon from the sprint position to be ready to fire.

However, with semtex or another piece of equipment in-hand, the gun is already in a position to fire and cancels the delay, making it quite deadly in any gunfights. It is worth noting that it is not possible to ADS while using this exploit and that players would have to rely on their weapons attachments to make their shots more accurate.

While this strange exploit does require some getting used to, it could still be quite overpowered particularly on maps with short-range engagements such as Nuketown, especially as the grenade will drop if you’re taken down – like how the Martyrdom perk used to work.

As of now, it is unclear whether this was intended to be a feature in Cold War but, if it is found to be a glitch it will likely be patched by Treyarch in one of the future updates.
