Players are still being surprised with new content in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Today, the new Sykov pistol was silently slipped into the game.

The new Sykov Pistol should be locked but viewable under the pistols section of your create-a-class. If you want to unlock the new Sykov Pistol for use in both Modern Warfare and Warzone, you simply need to complete a pistol challenge.

You must get four pistol kills in five different matches, so just choose your favorite unlocked pistol and hop into a match. You can choose to take the easy route, backing out of the match after you earn those four kills. Then it’s just rinse and repeat. You’ll still have your progress count, but if you’re like me, you might feel like a bad teammate for abandoning each match.

Once unlocked and leveled up, the Sykov has the potential to be a really powerful contender in both Modern Warfare and Warzone. The Sykov can be beefed up with an 80-round drum, and even be full-automatic with the option to also akimbo dual wield. This new gun could potentially shake up the current Warzone meta.

Developers Raven Software has tweeted that an issue was resolved in Warzone that was causing the Sykov pistol challenge to show but not track the player’s progression. Players should now be able to unlock the weapon as intended.

This new gun comes shortly after three maps were quietly introduced into Modern Warfare, but last week the developers announced the removal of two of the maps. Currently, the third added map, Killhouse, is still available to play.

This was a nice surprise for Modern Warfare fans, as Activision’s current focus remains on Black Ops: Cold War and Warzone. Call of Duty’s Season 2 is set to wrap up for Black Ops: Cold War and Warzone on April 21. A new teaser trailer was released today for the upcoming Season 3, and things are heating up in Verdansk.
