In-game rewards for playing a game’s beta are nothing new. Hell, Call of Duty’s been doing it for years with in-game calling cards and emblems being rewards for playing WWII and Black Ops 4’s betas. Now, it seems that Infinity Ward is taking this a step further, as it has revealed the reward for beta players of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and, to my surprise, it’s actually a weapon blueprint called the Hammer Shotgun.
For those wondering exactly what that means, allow me to explain it to you. Blueprints are, essentially, pre-made plans for customized weapons in Modern Warfare. All blueprints, right now, utilize the same in-game attachments as the normal weapon, however, they give each gun an exclusive look. For example, the Hammer Shotgun is the standard .725 shotgun, customized with a grip, silencer, red-dot sight, and more, as well as an exclusive visual look.
According to Infinity Ward, if you reach, or have already reached, level 10 in the Modern Warfare beta, you’ll receive the Hammer Shotgun when the game launches in October. As of the time of this writing, it’s unknown how normal players will be able to earn the Hammer Shotgun. If you want to check out the shotgun for yourself, you can find an image of it at the top of the article.
Earlier today, it was revealed that most of the game’s post-launch content will hit all platforms at the same time, with some content coming first to PlayStation 4 users.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will hit store shelves on October 25, 2019, and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. If you pre-order the game, you’ll be available to get your hands on the game’s beta, which is having its second test weekend on Thursday of this week.
