This will be available for free at Tier 15 of the Season 4 Battle Pass.

C58 - AR

" Full-auto assault rifle. High damage at close range with a slower fire rate. Fast bullet velocity and reliable recoil control with less ammo capacity."

This weapon is going to be free at Tier 31 of the Season 4 Battle Pass.

Nail Gun - Special (BOCW) / SMG (WZ)

" This slow-firing, highly mobile power tool uses compressed air to launch fast-moving projectiles that deal high damage at close range."

OTs 9 - SMG

" 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 Offers First Look

At the moment, we've only got one trailer showcasing what's coming in Season 4. It's not as clear as to what weapons there are, though. There are a few snippets that look like they might be new weapons, but these could also be blueprints for existing firearms and there's nothing too clear.

Still, it's offering us an exciting look at what's in store and we can't wait to see what else Treyarch and Raven Software have up their sleeves.

Leaked Weapons That Could Still Appear

If there's one thing Activision is doing right with Call of Duty at the moment, it is the weapons. Each season brings a new batch of weapons and the selection to choose from in Warzone is absolutely massive.

Looking at the latest leaks, there's a lot of new weapons we could see in Warzone in Season 4. There's no confirmation that any of the following will appear; They could be pushed back to Season 5 or beyond.

With that in mind, though, here's what we know so far:

Leaked Melee Weapons

  • Hammer;
  • Kukuri (Long, Curved Knife from Indian Subcontinent);

Leaked Firearms

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

The mid-season update often brings a few surprises, so perhaps we could see the remainder of these leaked weapons sooner than we think. For now, though, we have no way of knowing for sure.

Release Date

Black Ops Cold War and Warzone are both going to be getting their next major update, ushering in Season 4, on June 17th. This is two days after the supposed end of Season 3, though. So we're expecting the current season to receive an extension to bridge the gap.
