As a reward for taking part in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Beta, and to showcase the new Gunsmith system, players will be receiving a free Hammer Shotgun on the game’s release.
In order to earn the Hammer Shotgun, players must reach Level 10 before the Beta period ends on 23 September 2019. The Hammer has a “pistol grip, dual-silenced short barrel, angled foregrip, and holographic sight designed to create a quick-handling, short-ranged, silenced method of foe disposal”. That’s not how silencers work, but it looks pretty cool. You will receive a Blueprint for creating the gun with the new Gunsmith system.
Gunsmith lets you customise eight physical parts of any weapon, such as the barrel, stock, and muzzle, and combine these with various perks and weapon mods, to create your own, unique killing machine. Find out more, here.
You will be able to play the Beta on the 19th and 20th September, if you’re on the PlayStation 4 or have Early Access on Xbox One or PC, and then there will be open access from the 21st to the 23rd. So, regular Xbox One and PC folks only have this weekend to make it to Level 10, if they want that shotgun.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is set to launch on 25 October 2019 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
