Five new free weapons added with MW3 Season 1 battle pass

Five free weapons are part of the latest Battle Pass including a sniper, assault rifle and more.

The Call of Duty Season 1 launch brings several new additions to the game including a new map, operators, new weapons, and more. While the community is excited to get their hands on the CoD MW3 and Warzone Season 1, here’s what we know about the five new weapons in MW3 Season 1 Battle pass. 

Five New Weapons in CoD Modern Warfare 3

XRK Stalker (Sniper Rifle — Launch, Battle Pass Sector A4)

Stalk your prey and lay them out with this tactical sniper rifle chambered in .50 Cal.

For one-hit eliminations, look no further. The XRK Stalker Sniper Rifle deals massive damage and is highly customizable to support multiple playstyles. Enhance the weapon’s velocity and stability and strike from the shadows or improve its handling capabilities to become a quick-scoping menace.

The XRK Stalker is a tactical sniper rifle that players can equip depending on their playstyle. They may want to play long-range and catch opponents off-guard. But it’s also lethal when they play up close and personal to use the weapon’s quick scoping capabilities. 

RAM-7 (Assault Rifle — Launch, Battle Pass Sector A7)

Exceptionally compact, this bullpup assault rifle sports a lightweight, polymer frame and is chambered in versatile 5.56.

When you need power and mobility, the RAM-7 is a sure bet. The weapon deals solid damage at close and medium range and in controlled bursts can compete from afar. Its lightweight frame results in a quick reload and fast handling so you can stay on the offensive.

The RAM-7 Assault rifle, however, is probably the better bet up close and personal. The shotgun has quicker reload, allowing you to take more shots at opponents. When you are at close range, we’d definitely recommend the Assault rifle over the Sniper rifle. 

Stormender (Launcher — Launch, Battle Pass Sector A12)

This state-of-the-art weapon system fires a localized EMP on a slight delay. Destroys tactical and lethal equipment and temporarily disables other electronic devices.

This brand-new weapon has the power to shoot down specific Killstreaks and take out drones with its lock-on capabilities. With unlimited recharging ammo and the ability to disable and delay enemy equipment, this weapon serves as a very real shock to the system, though damage to Operators is minimal.

HRM-9 (SMG — In-Season, Armory Unlock)

A light yet stable 9mm submachine gun for close-quarters combat and putting down enemies quickly.

Sporting a high fire rate and excellent handling and mobility, the HMR-9 is the perfect fit for aggressive run-and-gun playstyles. Aim down sights for precise fire or enter Tac-Stance and run circles around your enemies. Use Gunsmith to enhance the weapon’s midrange capabilities, improve its close-quarters performance, or a combination of the two.

TAQ Evolvere (LMG — In-Season)

An advanced, multi-caliber LMG capable of firing 7.62 or 5.56 with minimal adjustments to the weapon. Versatile and exceptionally lethal in the right hands.

This all-new Light Machine Gun is capable of taking down both infantry and artillery, whichever chooses to cross its path. A wide variety of Attachments are available via the Gunsmith, allowing you to tailor the TAQ Evolvere to any playstyle.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 goes live on December 6 and there’s a lot coming out with the new update. It includes a new map, new operator and as we just outlined, five new free weapons.
