MW3 and Warzone Season 3 offers 4 new weapons

Nearly every season of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone gains a few new toys to play with. Season 3, which begins April 3, is no different. This time, we’re getting a new Assault Rifle, Sniper, SMG, and melee weapon, one of which will be added during the season. All four new weapon options are obtainable through the brand-new battle pass when Season 3 starts.

FJX Horus (SMG) – Unlocked from completing Sector 8 of the battle pass, the FJX Horus is a brand new lightweight SMG. It’s ‘ultra-compact’ and provides excellent close-quarters damage and maneuverability. It’s likely to play similar to the Swarm players have used for a while. It is said to have ‘class-leading mobility’ which means the movement kings will love getting their hands on it.

MORS (Sniper) – Unlocked from completing Sector 4 of the battle pass, the MORS is a new sniper rifle for Season 3. It’s a single-load railgun capable of delivering bullets to its target quickly thanks to incredible velocity and penetration. MORS is an acronym for Military Operated Rail Sniper, and excels in damage and handling. The downside will undoubtedly be the reload time, which is required after each shot is fired.

BAL-27 (Assault Rifle) – Although the roadmap says the BAL-27 is unlocked through the battle pass, Call of Duty‘s blog says the method of unlocking it is redacted for now. We do know it will be unavailable at the start of Season 3, entering the fray likely sometime during mid-season. The bullpup AR gains increased fire rate over time, with the first four shots being slower but more accurate than the subsequent ones. It will be available with a 60-round magazine and is excellent for close-range combat.

Gladiator (Melee) – A new knife, unlockable through Sector 15 of the battle pass. It’s meant to rival the Karambit and other small knives for pure mobility. The Gladiator provides extremely fast movement speed and melee speed, which will come in handy. As you might expect, you’ll have to get as close as possible for the Gladiator to be effective.

In addition to the new weapons coming in Modern Warfare 3‘s Season 3, there are more aftermarket parts on the way too. As with Season 2, everything is earnable through weekly challenges. Each week, you’ll have to complete five of the provided challenges to get the corresponding aftermarket part.

JAK Revenger Kit (BP50) – Conversion kit turns the BP50 into a close-quarters weapon using 9mm ammo, a shortened receiver, and a high-capacity magazine.

JAK Cutthroat (MCW, MTZ, M4, AMR9) – 3D-printed stock offers speed and stability while aiming down the sights of all compatible weapons.

JAK Jawbreaker (KV Broadside) – Converter to turn the shotgun into an even harder-hitting and fully-automatic Battle Rifle.

JAK Shadow Titan Kit (Bruen MK9) – The conversion kit turns the Bruen MK9 into a smaller and suppressed weapon with 300 blackout ammo.

JAK Patriot (M16) – The JAK Patriot converter turns the M16 into a full-auto rifle with better recoil control and aim stability than the standard version.

Wardens (Lockwood MK2) – Turns the Lockwood MK2 Marksman Rifle into akimbo shotguns, replicating the comically overpowered Model 1887 shotguns from the original Modern Warfare 2.

JAK Atlas Kit (AMR9) – Using the Atlas Kit for the AMR9 will make it into a highly accurate 5-round burst weapon that uses more lethal 556 ammunition.

Photonic Charge Barrel (MORS) – The final aftermarket part is for the new sniper coming with Season 3, the MORS. It turns it into what is essentially a Spartan Laser from Halo 3. Hold down the trigger to charge it and release it to let out a single, high-powered energy projectile. The method to unlock this attachment has not been revealed, though it likely ties into the weekly challenges.

Three of the four new weapons for Season 3 of Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone will be earnable at launch through the battle pass. For everything else, you’ll have to wait until mid-season or work hard on those weekly challenges. It looks like Season 3 is going to be filled with some crazy gun metas, based on what’s coming.
