With Call of Duty: Modern Warfare just around the corner, fans are probably wondering which weapon they are going to use in the hectic multiplayer shooter. While the past two beta waves revealed plenty of guns to play with, many weren’t announced.
Data miners from VG Sources revealed a complete list of all the weapons coming to Modern Warfare, including the smaller firearms that will support dual wielding, also know as akimbo in Call of Duty.
You can find a full list of all the featured weapons in Modern Warfare below, with an indication if Akimbo is possible for that particular weapon:
- Honey Badger
- FR 5.56
- FN Scar 17s
- Kilo 141
- PP-19 Bizon
- MP7 (akimbo)
- Origin 12
- Model 680
Light Machine Guns:
- MK2 Carbine
- MGL-32 Grenade Launcher
- Rambo Grenade Launcher
- SA-24 Grinch Infrared SAM
- MGL-32 Incendiary Launcher
- .50 GS (akimbo)
- X16 (akimbo)
- .44 Magnum (akimbo)
- 1911 (akimbo)
- USP 45.
For all the non-gun nuts out there, plenty of these weapons are Call of Duty staples, with weapons like the AK-47, UMP-45, the 1911, and of course the M4A1 featuring in almost every era appropriate shooter. Guns like the Intervention, Spas-12, and the Honey Badger will also be making their return to Call of Duty.
Surprisingly, not all pistols in the game will support Akimbo. There doesn’t seem to be any logic surrounding which guns will be available as a dual wield and which won’t. For example, with the huge .44 Magnum revolvers you can bring double the devastating firepower but the fairly compact USP 45. can’t be dual wielded. The .357, another high-powered revolver, won’t be eligible for Akimbo either.
Another surprise is the possibility of dual wielding the MP7, the only non-pistol Akimbo in the game based on this dataset. Gamers that participated in the Modern Warfare beta may have noticed the particular shredding ability of the submachine gun with an insanely high rate of fire. It will be interesting to see how Infinity Ward balances two of these shredders in one soldier’s hands.
Lastly, veteran CoD fans will be pleased (or horrified) to see the crossbow return to Modern Warfare. The lethal bolt shooter was featured in many instances in the series and was even a big part of the Sticks & Stones game mode. It’s unclear however if that game mode will be returning to Modern Warfare.
Dual wielding two MP7’s is fun and all, but there’s a possibility that the feature won’t be available for everyone, perhaps even being locked behind a loot boxes or a paywall. In this article we discuss how Activision might use some shady tactics to bring in some extra money. Also make sure to check out all the leaked Gun Charms that will be coming to Modern Warfare here.
