A new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare teaser is being sent out in marketing emails, hinting at a new Operator, and some intriguing additions to Warzone and multiplayer.

After the vaults started opening in Call of Duty: Warzone, players have been itching to know what was coming next. Now, Infinity Ward has teased the next reveals for the battle royale and base game, with fans scrambling to decipher the cryptic messaging.

The easiest hint is that Captain John Price, who first appeared in 2007’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, will be the game’s next available Operator for Season 4. Then comes speculation about the Verdansk map’s bunkers, and the possibility of a new weapon.

 

At one point in the video, the enlistment of a “senior Operator” is mentioned alongside a granulated picture of a man with a rugged bucket hat—fitting Price’s signature look. When asked if this indecipherable figure is a problem, the speaker responds “yes, a big one.” That notoriety again suggests that the infamous Price should be the game’s next Operator.

More interesting for Warzone fans, though, is the speculation surrounding the map’s bunkers.

 

One of the speakers details that “the opposition is moving new armaments into territory Victor,” while the map of Verdansk zooms in on a location right above Military Base—exactly where Bunker 11 lays.

Adding to the mystery, some believe that “ornaments” is said, not “armaments,” but the latter would make more sense. If this is the case, then there could be some sort of new weaponry connected to Bunker 11 in particular.

As noticed by inquisitive fans, the video’s text indicates that an immediate meeting is set to happen at Echo Charlie Hotel 2-0 and that the meeting’s passphrase is “WHIPLASH.”

When you look at Verdansk’s map, E-2 (Echo 2-0) places you near the locked bunker at Military Base, C-2 near the bunker at Dam and H-2 at the one near Quarry. All three appear to use number phones for access, suggesting that players may be able to try inputting “WHIPLASH” in order to gain access.

At the moment, no one has checked if the above is actually a means to entering further into the bunkers—but speculation continues to mount. In another instance, a player suggests that code in the trailer ties to a nuclear detonation (which would fit the “armaments” discussion).

Finally, fans have also taken the gun shown in the trailer into consideration. Some believe that it is the Galil, as last seen in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, while others think it may be the AK-74u, as currently found in Call of Duty: Mobile.

 

For now, nothing is confirmed and everything is under question—but Price feels like a strong bet to be the game’s next Operator. 

We will continue to monitor this ongoing mystery and update whenever possible.

Best LW3 Tundra loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

Despite not being everyone’s favorite sniper rifle in Black Ops Cold War, the LW3 Tundra is still a respectable choice because it packs a bigger punch than its fellow bolt-action rifle, the Pelington 703. Here’s what you need to build one of the best loadouts for the Tundra.

Right now, if you were to ask people to think about sniper rifles in Black Ops Cold War, most people would probably think about the Pelington 703. Of the two bolt-action sniper rifles in the game (as of November 25, 2020, at least), it’s the one first unlocked, has better base statistics, and a faster aim-down-speed than the Tundra.

Despite this, however, the Tundra is still a formidable weapon. While the Pelington is a one-shot kill to head and chest, the Tundra is a one-shot kill to both — as well as to shoulders, making it a heavy hitter. Further, you can capitalize on certain attachments to make its speed comparable to the Pelington.

There’s an easy way to make a high-speed loadout for the Tundra.

This loadout is meant for speed, which is what you need to improve for such a hefty sniper. You want to be able to have some decent mobility, while at the same time having the option for quick-scoping if you need it. By the end of this, most of the “speed” bar in the stats section of the weapon should be filled out.

In order to best take advantage of this speed, you’ll want to use the Gunfighter wildcard in order to get three extra attachments on your primary. We won’t be using all three though, due to the fact that an optic isn’t really needed, but you can add one if you’d like.

  • Muzzle: Stabilizer .308
  • Barrel: 25.8 Rapid Fire
  • Body: Steady Aim Laser
  • Underbarrel: Infiltrator Grip
  • Magazine: Fast Mag
  • Handle: Serpent Wrap
  • Stock: Raider Pad

For the muzzle, the Stabilizer .308 is your best bet. It’s the first attachment you unlock and it provides immediate control over your idle sway, aka a CoD sniper’s worst enemy after ADS speed. Getting a slight handle on that is worth it at the end of the day, not just for the Tundra, but for almost every sniper in BOCW.

With the barrel, you’ll want the 25.8 Rapid Fire, as it will increase your fire-rate slightly with absolutely no downside whatsoever, just like the aforementioned muzzle. Taking advantage of those positives without having any downsides is always a win.

For the body, this theme continues with the Steady Aim Laser. The use of this attachment is mainly to offset the stock you’ll use, which negatively impacts your hip fire accuracy by 30%. The Steady Aim Laser effectively negates that disadvantage by boosting it back up by the same amount.

The Tundra is still a formidable weapon in BOCW, despite handling heavier than the Pelington.

For the underbarrel, you’ll want the Infiltrator Grip. This gives slight boosts to your movement, shooting move speed, and aim walking movement speed, all of which helps with the sniper role in CoD games. Like the other attachments, there’s once again no downsides.

You’ll also want a Fast Mag on the Tundra. While that means you won’t have extra ammo to use up before you have to reload, the reloads in and of themselves will be improved, thanks to a 25-percent upgrade on your speed. Considering the pattern, it’s pretty easy to guess that, just like the other attachments, this one also has no negatives.

The loadout also takes advantage of the Serpent Wrap handle for the weapon. This increases your ADS time by about 10 percent, giving you an easier way to quick-scope if you need to. Unfortunately, it does come at the cost of 10 percent of your sprint-to-fire speed, but that can be made up with this next attachment.

The last thing you’ll need for this set-up is the Raider Pad stock. This boosts the aforementioned sprint-to-fire time by 30% and also the aim walking movement speed by 40%. As previously mentioned, this attachment also hurts your hip-fire accuracy, but that’s balanced by using the steady aim laser.

Keep it locked to Dexerto for more Black Ops Cold War weapon loadouts.
