Warzone leak reveals upcoming Season 3 weapons
Data miners have discovered several upcoming weapons in Warzone’s game files, including the classic Ballistic Knife, that are likely to arrive in Cold War and Warzone during Season 3.
Black Ops Cold War and Warzone players have now received all of Season 2’s weapons, with the LC10 shaking up Cold War’s meta and the R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow providing a fun challenge. As Season 3 approaches, players are now looking forward to the next weapons to bolster their multiplayer and battle royale arsenals.
Neither Treyarch nor Raven Software have confirmed any of Season 3’s content, but known leaker ZestyCODLeaks has revealed that three new weapons have been added to the game files.
After the Season 2 Reloaded update, these weapon files were added to Warzone:
ZestyCODLeaks said that “these files are usually only added when weapons are in the final stage before release,” so it’s highly likely they will arrive in Season 3. While we can’t see what the weapons will look like from their file, we can get a taste of how they may perform.
There appears to be a new fast-firing burst Assault Rifle coming to the game. Like the M16 and AUG, this could be a Tactical Rifle, but perhaps its ‘fast burst’ feature will place it in the AR category. There’s also what could be an SMG described with ‘spray,’ which likely relates to a high fire rate.
Most exciting is the confirmation that the Ballistic Knife is set to arrive. First appearing in the original Black Ops, the Ballistic Knife has been a staple in the franchise. It’s no surprise that this projectile melee weapon will be making its way to Cold War and Warzone.
ZestyCODLeaks said there also will be a new full-auto pistol coming, perhaps in the Season 3 Reloaded update or in Season 4. Although the Sykov full-auto pistol has been leaked for Modern Warfare, this is likely to be a Cold War weapon, so it’s probably something different.
A Baseball Bat melee weapon has also been leaked for either Season 3 Reloaded or Season 4, which should be especially fun to crack Zombies’ skulls open with.
As with all leaks, there’s no confirmation that these weapons will arrive in Warzone or Cold War. Activision said that “with Season Three right on the verge of dropping, be on the lookout for a tease of what’s to come in Black Ops Cold War from Treyarch,” so we’re likely to know what’s coming soon.
