Finally, after months of silence, Nintendo has confirmed that the reveal of the next Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC fighter will be coming on October 1. Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming livestream.

Earlier this year, Min Min from Arms was confirmed as the latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighter. While it wasn’t exactly the most exciting news for longtime fans of the series, it was still interesting nonetheless as it was a brand new fighter.

Now, fans have been waiting months to hear about the next fighter. Rumors about who’s going to be added are running rampant, with everyone from Pokemon’s Mew to Overwatch’s Tracer being thrown around as possible candidates. Now that we know exactly when the reveal is coming, we won’t have to speculate or listen to unverified rumors for much longer.

Fortunately, the presentation itself is going to be relatively short, only 3 minutes long with a message from Masahiro Sakurai himself. That means that you won’t have to set aside too much of your day in order to watch it, if you so desire.

Unfortunately, that also means that we probably won’t get too much of a deep dive into the fighter themselves, only getting the actual reveal and a few ancillary details.

The reveal itself is set to take place on YouTube, which you can find linked below. Currently, it’s unknown whether or not the reveal will be streamed anywhere else, however, given the fact that Nintendo also has their own Twitch account, it wouldn’t be surprising if it premieres there too.

Overall, it’ll be interesting to see who gets revealed tomorrow. Will it be just another Nintendo character or are we in for a special third-party crossover? Who knows.

Infinity Ward have confirmed that they are in the process of releasing a patch that will nerf Season 6’s AS VAL and SP-R 208 weapons, which have been causing major issues for players on both Modern Warfare multiplayer and Warzone.

Call of Duty fans are always eager for new weapons to be added to Warzone with the release of a new season, helping keep the ultra-popular battle royale mode fresh and exciting for those who regularly jump into Verdansk in search of victories.

Adding new weapons isn’t always easy though, as making sure they are balanced and fair can prove to be tricky. You don’t know how they will truly perform until they are in the hands of the massive Call of Duty player base, and often need to be adjusted afterward to bring them in line with the other guns.

Season 6’s new weapons have proved to particularly problematic though, with the SP-R 208’s speed, power and accuracy as a sniper rifle allowing anyone to become a one-shot killing machine. While the AS VAL has been shooting through unlimited surfaces, thanks to then 10 round mag attachment that sees it slam through six walls with ease on maps like St. Petrograd.

Unsurprisingly, Warzone and Modern Warfare fans aren’t particularly happy about the new weapons, which can make it impossible to avoid death while taking cover or make you an easy target for snipers.

Thankfully, Infinity Ward have been listening to the complaints, and a fix is on the way to get these problems ironed out for what is likely to be the final Modern Warfare in-game season.

In a tweet sent out by Infinity Ward‘s Senior Communications Manager Ashton Williams, not only are the developers intent on balancing the weapons, but they have already created the updates required and are testing them ahead of release.

“We currently have a patch being tested that has weapon tuning for the AS VAL and SP-R 208,” it reads. “Pending any unforeseen issues, we’ll release it as soon as possible.”

While the fix is on the way, Williams didn’t go as far as giving a confirmed release date for the patch. These things can often be delayed due to other bugs cropping up as a result of the fix, so Infinity Ward will want to make sure that nothing else breaks because of it during thier testing phase.

At least a fix is on the way though, and soon you’ll be able to take cover behind walls safe in the knowledge that you aren’t about to get destroyed by someone with AS VAL aimed right where you’re hiding.
