" Boasting great stopping power and a phenomenal rate of fire, the OTs 9 is hindered only by its low magazine capacity of 20 rounds."

This is going to be available at some point during Season 4 via in-game Challenge or Weapon Blueprint Bundle.

Mace - Melee

" A weapon ill fit for the weak, Mace can inflict critical damage on command — no dice rolls needed on whether it can bludgeon your rivals in a single blow within Multiplayer."

This Melee Weapon is going to be available mid-Season 4 via in-game Challenge or Weapon Blueprint Bundle.

Gameplay Trailer Hints At New Weapons

The new Season 4 Gameplay Trailer might not be the clearest look at the new weapons we could have got, but it's a start, right? We're expecting the full content roadmap to drop on June 14th, so we should get a proper rundown of all the new weapons that are going to be added to Warzone and Black Ops Cold War then.

For now, though, you can check out the latest Gameplay Trailer and see what you can spot in and amongst the chaos.

Then, we have the firearms...

  • Chicom CQB (First seen in Black Ops)
  • Explosive Crossbow (Possibly an ammo variant, not a new weapon)

We don't know for sure whether these weapons will be released during Season 4, but at the moment it doesn't seem likely.

Call of Duty Season 4's Release Date

It has now been confirmed that Warzone's Season 4 is going to be available on June 17th.

Original Article

At the moment, we haven't had confirmation as to when Call of Duty Season 4 is due to start. That doesn't mean we can't make an educated guess, though. We know Call of Duty's third season is due to end on June 15th if we look at the current Battle Pass.

This means we're expecting Call of Duty Season 4 to start halfway through June 15th, June 16th or June 17th.

We're inclined to lean more towards June 17th as both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War usually receive their weekly updates on Thursdays. However, Treyarch and Activision aren't limited to these schedules and they have been known to push out updates on Tuesdays in the past.
