At this point, the inclusion of Captain John Price and Sergeant Kyle Garrick seems inevitable. The trailer showcases the former holding the Galil AR. Whereas the latter is seen bearing the Vector SMG. This teases the prospect of those specific weapons coming to the game with Season 4.

Credible Call of Duty leaker, TheGamingRevolution, in his latest YouTube video, has now provided a sneak peek into the leaked weapons’ gameplay. He obtained the gameplay footage from a CoD enthusiast, @BKTOOR, on Twitter.

The first weapon showcased in the footage is the Galil. It is an Israeli AR and a close relative of the AK-47 with almost similar damage and good control. According to TGR, it will be a different, modern variant of the Galil than previous CoD titles.

The next weapon on display is the Vector. This SMG has the second-highest fire rate stats within the in-game files. Although it has decent damage and high accuracy, the range and control are lackluster. That’s not all. There’s more to the weapon additions.

The gameplay footage also features a new melee weapon. The Akimbo Blades (also shown in the trailer) are headed Modern Warfare’s way in the fourth season. Additionally, the leaker mentions the presence of Akimbo Batons in the game files. However, at this moment, it is uncertain whether the batons will come in season four or later.

TheGamingRevolution has previously discussed the possibilities of a few more weapons (an SMG, DMR, and anti-material rifle) appearing in the game. In that video, he provided the audio of gunfire for the weapons, including camo textures for the Galil and Vector. You can read about it as well as watch the video by clicking here.

The Call of Duty YouTuber further highlighted the Scrapyard map appearing in the background of the Season 4 logo within the trailer. There have been rumblings about Scrapyard coming to Modern Warfare for quite some time. It was one of the many maps discovered by data miners in the game files. Moreover, TGR disclosed of finding multiple new modes for the multiplayer and Warzone as well, within the in-game files.

However, since Infinity Ward hasn’t released a full trailer for Season 4 yet, there is no official confirmation about these arrivals. Expect them to make the announcements soon as well as provide a roadmap in the build-up to the new season in Modern Warfare and Warzone. Till then, stay tuned.
