Smash Ultimate DLC fighter speculation is hitting new highs with Activision finally announcing that Crash 4: It’s About Time will be coming to the Nintendo Switch on March 12.

Crash Bandicoot has long been a fan-favorite character and a prime candidate for a Super Smash Bros fighter. Although most of the gaming mascots of yesteryear are already in Nintendo’s fighter, such as Mario and Sonic, Crash has been absent.

This could all be about to change, though, as there is plenty of evidence to suggest that Crash 4’s Switch port could coincide with a fighter announcement – potentially for the bandicoot himself.

After Nintendo revealed Crash 4 would be coming to the console, Smash and Crash fans noted that the next wave of amiibo are scheduled to be released on March 26.

Crash Bandicoot has been a rumored DLC fighter.

This is key because, in the past, all amiibo releases have coincided with fighter announcements. This phenomenon is known as amiibo theory in the Smash community.

Could the release of Crash 4 on Switch be lined up with the character being revealed for Smash Ultimate? Many players seem to think so.

“VERY interesting that this comes out in March, around the time we can probably expect the next Smash character reveal,” one noted.

“Activision ‘leak’ specifies cross collaboration with Smash is the final step with the Crash revival,” another stated. “Could it finally be happening boys?”

The “leak” that the user was referring to is a rumored document that outlined Activision’s five-year plan for Crash Bandicoot, which included him coming to Smash in 2021.

Overall, the chances that Crash ends up in Smash are actually looking to be quite strong. Activision is a major company without any Smash representation, so they’re long overdue for that.

Could Crash really be the 9th DLC fighter?

Plus, with Banjo, and more recently, Minecraft Steve being added as DLC, western-developed characters aren’t as out of the norm as they once were.

We could very well see Crash finally come to Smash in Fighters Pass Volume 2, and we have to say, it’s about time; once Challenger Pack 9 is revealed, only two more fighters will remain in the pass. Will Crash be one of them? We will have to wait and see.

Season 2 of Warzone and Black Ops Cold War brought with it the new LC10 SMG. Here’s everything you need to know to secure the fast-firing weapon for yourself. 

A brand new Season in BOCW and Warzone means brand new content. While the new Outbreak mode and various maps might have stolen the spotlight, Season 2 came with fresh weapons that can’t be underestimated.

The LC10 marks the seventh SMG in Treyarch’s latest title. Despite having a lesser damage output than most SMGs, it comes with unique benefits. It’s one of the most accurate guns in its class, even with an extraordinary rate of fire.

Regardless of what you play, this gun is sure to be a popular pick across both Warzone and BOCW multiplayer.

Here’s how you can grab the new weapon for yourself in Season 2.

The LC10 is now one of the fastest SMGs in Warzone & BOCW.

If you’re looking to grab the new SMG as soon as possible, you’re in luck. You won’t have to grind a specific challenge or play out of your comfort zone for this one.

The LC10 is unlocked at Tier 31 of the Season 2 Battle Pass. Since the Battle Pass overlaps across both Warzone and BOCW, you’ll be earning progress no matter what you play.

31 Tiers will likely take a couple of sessions to grind through. But in due time, the LC10 will be yours just by playing Call of Duty.

You’ll be able to grab the LC10 SMG through the Season 2 Battle Pass.

No different from previous Battle Passes, Season 2 comes with free and premium options. This means you can buy your way through Tiers, rather than dumping time into the game and earning XP.

Individual Tiers will run you $1.50 each. However, you can purchase the Battle Pass Bundle for 2,400 CP to start out. This gets you through the first 20 Tiers instantly, leaving just 11 Tiers to buy after.

Since it’s the latest SMG, the LC10 is sure to be a common pick over the next few weeks. Unlocking it early could be your best bet to get ahead of the curve in both Warzone and BOCW multiplayer.
