CoD: Warzone And MW3 Season 4 Confirms The Return Of Iconic Rifle

The new season starts May 29 for Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone.


Activision has released a new teaser trailer for the upcoming Season 4 update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone. The season is confirmed for May 29, and the big update brings the return of Warzone's popular Kar98k bolt-action rifle.

The brief video clip doesn't give much away, with quick images of clocks, timers, and keypads. These teasers could be referring to the bunkers in Warzone, which haven't been unlocked yet, and they could be preparing to open in Season 4. The images could also be teasing an upcoming reveal for Call of Duty 2024. The new game reveal may or may not be tied to the Warzone bunkers, which is something we've seen in the past with Call of Duty in-game reveal events.

In addition to the Season 4 clip, Activision also sent packages to Call of Duty influencers that contained teasers to reveal the popular Kar98k rifle is returning. It's uncertain if this will be the marksman-rifle version seen in Modern Warfare 2019 or Call of Duty: Vanguard's sniper-rifle version, but it was described in the teasers as being a bolt-action rifle, which makes sense, seeing as it's a real weapon used by Germany in WW2.

More details will likely arrive in the coming days leading up to Season 4's launch. In other Call of Duty news, Warzone's recent update has added a secret "Sally" pistol weapon blueprint, which seems to be teasing Treyarch's rumored Black Ops 6.
