Activision has announced that players who participate in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare beta will receive an in-game reward at launch in the shape of a blueprint for The Hammer Shotgun. Anyone who has been in a Call of Duty beta will have probably expected as much; in-game rewards have been commonplace for years now, after all.
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Beta Reward Confirmed
If you’re not up to speed on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, blueprints are pre-made plans for customised weapons, featuring an exclusive look. In the Hammer Shotgun’s case, this includes an additional grip, silencer, red-dot sight and more for the standard .725 shotgun.
To get your hands on the Hammer Shotgun, you’ll have to not only play the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare beta, but reach level 10 to secure your reward.
Earlier today, we reported that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s DLC will mostly arrive simultaneously for all platforms, although PS4 owners will still benefit from as-yet undisclosed Day 1 bonuses. Speaking of the beta, a new Ground War Mode is coming to the teaser this weekend.
Activision will publish Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on October 25. The game is a full reboot of the popular series, which was introduced back in 2007 and represented a major departure for the franchise at the time, eschewing the World War II backdrop for a contemporary setting.
Unlike last year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Modern Warfare’s gritty reboot will include a full-fledged single-player campaign, which will see popular character Captain Price (now voiced by Barry Sloane) thrust back into action.
Call of Duty 2020 is rumoured to continue the Black Ops series, and will reportedly feature a campaign that spans 40 years. Activision confirmed a few years back that the franchise had sold over 250 million units worldwide, making it one of the best-selling video game series of all time.
