Call of Duty leakers have revealed that the FAL could soon be getting an attachment to make the weapon fully automatic in Modern Warfare and Warzone.

The FAL has recently stood out as one of the top guns in Warzone, following the latest weapon changes, which saw nerfs to the likes of the Grau, Mp5, and more.

This semi-automatic weapon can be quite difficult to master, as it requires players to focus on maintaining a high fire rate as well as keeping steady aim, however, that may be changing.

A new attachment for the FAL could be coming soon.

New leaks reveal that the classic Call of Duty gun could be receiving a buff, in the form of a new attachment that would make it fully automatic.

As the weapon is already known for ripping through armor and dishing out considerable damage in Warzone, this buff could push the weapon to the very top tier in Warzone.

The leaks were shared by ModernWarzone, who highlighted that a FAL full auto attachment would be coming soon, after sharing their thoughts on the best weapons in Warzone.

ModernWarzone also shared an early look at this new attachment, which would soon be available for the gun, and revealed that it was titled the “Full-Auto Conversion.”

While the FAL is now expected to receive a full-auto upgrade, it is likely that the weapon will have a slower fire rate than some of the other weapons in its class, to help balance these expected changes.

As of now, it is unknown whether this new feature will be unlocked through weapon rank progression or if Infinity Ward has plans for it to be earned through some sort of challenges instead.

It is also unclear when we can expect this new attachment to arrive on in Modern Warfare and Warzone, as it’s yet to be officially confirmed by the developers. As with all leaks, we’ll simply have to wait on confirmation.

Another Warzone streamer shows hacks live on Twitch stream

Like clockwork, another Call of Duty: Warzone streamer has exposed their in-game cheats while playing live on Twitch. And this time, the cheater did not take kindly to chat quickly trashing him.

Hackers have been the biggest issue in Warzone; with cross-play enabled between PC and console players for the first time, the CoD fanbase has been exposed to even greater levels of cheating than ever before.

Going by ‘festation’ on Twitch, yet another streamer has outed themselves as a cheater on the platform by displaying their hacks while broadcasting live. In this case, they were quickly called out on Twitter and in the chat, leading to deleted clips and a switch to Black Ops 4 gameplay.

With Twitch chat flaming him for being bad at Modern Warfare and Warzone even with hacks activated, festation proceeded to let them know that he is elite on Black Ops 4 and challenged them to 1v1 matches. He then switched over to the earlier CoD title, but not before his hacks were clipped and shipped across the internet.

As shown in the clip, downloaded before its inevitable deletion on Twitch, festation is rolling around Verdansk while knowing precisely where every single opponent is on the map. He can see players, color-coded based on their health, with a structural indication of their character model’s movement through walls.

Similarly, he also has indicators for guns, cash, and armor found throughout the map. Unfortunately for him, that sort of unfair game awareness doesn’t equate to the IQ that matters, as he is easily blown up by a Cluster Strike at one point.

This is likely why Twitch chat laid into him even more, as fans typically shame hackers for remaining inferior at the game even when gaining an unfair advantage. 

Part of the reason why he gained a decent amount of viewers on Twitch was likely because of getting exposed on Twitter. Concerned fans of the battle royale went so far as to reply to a random TimTheTatMan tweet to try and bring attention to the blatant hacking.

In response, new viewers could enjoy seeing the cheater switch over to BO4 and continue to struggle while throwing out challenges to his detractors in chat: “Get on Black Ops 4, watch me smack any of you on Hardpoint.”

This is far from the first time a streamer has been exposed for cheating. In the past, one accidentally displayed his hacks while another purposefully tried to show his off. As of yet, neither Infinity Ward nor Twitch appear to have banned festation, but repercussions seem likely following this exposure.
