Activision has just announced that Xbox One and Xbox 360 Season Pass owners will get access to the base “AE4” weapon and the custom “AE4 Widowmaker” weapon on December 11th. The weapon is described as a ‘energy directed Assault Rifle’.

Havoc, the first DLC pack for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, is set to release early next year. This pack will come with an all-new weapon, the AE4 directed energy Assault Rifle. The AE4 combines a versatile firing mechanism with all-around movement speed and handling. In addition to the base weapon, the AE4 Widowmaker custom variant will also be included.

As a bonus to Xbox Season Pass holders, you’ll receive early access to the AE4 and the AE4 Widowmaker starting December 11th. Don’t worry if you’ll be receiving Season Pass during the holidays; anyone that gets an Xbox 360 or Xbox One Season Pass after the 11th will gain instant access to both weapons.

The AE4 and AE4 Widowmaker will be available as part of the first DLC pack, Havoc, for users that don’t own the Season Pass. More details regarding Havoc DLC pack will be announced soon; Havoc is set to release in January on Xbox Live.

No news yet for when Season Pass owners on PSN and PC will be available to get this; stay tuned.

    like every year…… ofcourse XBOX First & a FULL MONTH LATER for other Platforms

    • And that’s why i got a xbox one lol

      • Juses

        for cod….? LMAO

        • Most cod fans have xbox -_-

          • Juses

            Nope. That’s laat gen. Cod sold 1 million more copies on ps4 than xb1. And ghosts on ps4 outsold the ps4 version every month.

          • That’s because PS4 sales have been higher -_-

          • Juses

            So, more people still play cod on ps4… So your point is invalid.

          • MichiganerE

            Ghosts on PS4 outsold the PS4 version?

          • Juses

            I meant the xb1

          • MichiganerE

            I don’t know about that…

          • Juses

            it did look at vgcharts…aw is ps4 sold 1 million more copies on ps4 than xb1

          • MichiganerE

            I don’t know about that. Clearly, PS4 is outselling PS4.

          • Juses

            i’m talking about cod

          • MichiganerE

            Yeah, CoD is outselling CoD on PS4 while PS4 is outselling PS4 on PS4.

          • Juses

            Go to vg charts the ps4 version on cod is outselling the XBONE version.

          • MichiganerE

            But CoD is outselling CoD while CoD is inferior to CoD on PS4 while CoD on PS4 is superior to CoD while being inferior to PS4 while outselling PS4.

          • Ps4 is so superior it’s inferior to itself.

          • MichiganerE

            Indeed.

      • Mario Rivera

        Kinda sad that dlc for a multiplatform game like Cod is all xbox is good for tho. The price xbots pay for a month of exclusive cod dlc is a inferior experience overall when compared to playstation/pc. After that month passes, one of its few noteworthy advantages are gone but its disadvantages remain.

      • Primey_

        Did you mummy enjoy wasting her money to buy you a xbox one just because it gets CoD dlc early?

        • Dude i have a Youtube and i love cod, and i used to be a pc gamer and then i wanted to make videos of the dlc early etc. so i saved my money and worked all spring and summer and got my self an xbox one………

    • MichiganerE

      Why are you still surprised? This deal has been going on since MW2. Stop acting like it never happened before.

      • TheGamerBeast

        why are u angry? maybe one day hopefully this thing will change, i pay money like XBOX owners pay exactly and i get the DLC a month later doesn’t that make u pissed?

        • MichiganerE

          What do you mean? I’m not angry. When the deal was first announced, I was angry. But then they continued it, and they’ll probably never stop it, so there’s no point in getting mad. Welcome to the future of gaming, a place where certain platforms get things before others, and companies released incomplete products!

          • TheGamerBeast

            true

        • Michael

          Um, by the looks of it, it doesn’t look like he’s angry. He’s just telling you that it’s something that’s been going on for a while and you just have to face the facts.

      Will Season Pass Owners be able to play WITHOUT “Skill Based Match Making” on December 11th too?

      Otherwise this new gun will be just as “inconsistent” as the rest…

      • Mr Doge

        I actually do not get how people lag so badly in this game. I have joined countless lobbies with low levels when I’m Prestige 2. Maybe Sledgehammer made the game so Americans don’t get host, every-single-FUCKING-GAME.

          It’s SBMM. That’s why, & SH is doing everything they can to ignore this HUGE ISSUE!

          Last night I was lagging into walls in TDM without even moving.

          Left the lobby, new lobby – same result.

          Next lobby, same result with the added bonus of people screaming about the lag.

          Popped in BO2, (now mind you this is past midnight) – jump into a game & people are dropping no problem.

          Went into another lobby, people are dropping. NO lag, just how COD should be “Match Making – BY CONNECTION!” Not this “Skill Based Mario Party BS!”

          It’s just sad that BO2’s inferior hit detection (a game that’s 2 years old), is blowing this game out of the water when it comes to “Connection”…

          • TheGamerBeast

            i LOVE AW but the game connection is laggy like shit i’m so sad to say that but in GHOSTS <<<< yes i just said ghosts, i didn't have any lag at all, maybe few, but AW every Game i join the Connection is terrible and keeps giving me host migration thing, i can't play the game is really fast and can't be played with connection issues

          • ccrows

            & Sadly I REALLY WANT TO LIKE THIS GAME!

            IDK, Youtube is growing by the day with people making “SBMM needs to go” vids.

            Link -> https://www.youtube.com/results?q=cod+advanced+warfare+skill+based+matchmaking

            ^ Seriously SH, how can you ignore all of that?… 🙁

          • RebornAngel666

            They’re assholes. They “listen to the fans” but they haven’t done shit since release! Fucking pricks

          • Jasy

            Oh they have done things since release. But all of it is shit. I mean, all its been is double XP, but I don’t want to do double XP when there are more pressing issues that need to be adressed and fixed. Get your shit together Ssledgehammer.

          • RebornAngel666

            Exactly!

          • The Nuke Project

            you want to know why? Cuz the game is ultra-popular this year, and they are working their butts off to fix issues. So please, shut up, and deal with it, they will fix it. Was it you that made the game or them? Yeah right, respect it.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Why should we have to deal with this BS? They had 3 years to polish this game for crying out loud.

          • justchill

            SHG doesn’t have a large staff and it is not easy to predict the lag before launch……

          • Agreed. But that doesn’t make it acceptable to have lag and messed up spawns.

          • Eric Mandzuk

            Omg stfu its a game there’s going to be problems kid

          • jordanxbrookes

            No I won’t STFU. Just because you are dumb enough to accept crap spawns and a horrible launch doesn’t mean the rest of us are. I love AW, it’s fun and greatly designed, but the amount of BS this game has sucks the fun out of it. If you were a true CoD fan, you’d be in agreement in wanting a working CoD with no SBMM, no revenge/broken spawns, no OP or UP weapons etc.

          • Mr Doge

            Lol haha I remember when Ghosts came out you were one of the few people who defended it while heaps of other people hated it. Now AW came out and when heaps of people like it, you hate it. Also I don’t know how the spawns are broken. I’ve never had a broken spawn. Not to mention all the weapons in this game are really balanced except for the EPM3 and Mk.14. Just play the fuckin game and stop bitching…

          • In my opinion, there are no ” overpowered ” guns in aw,

            There are the balanced ones ( like HBRa3 ) and then there are the plethora of unusable, usless weapons that can’t do jack.

            ( Cough cough shotguns )

          • RebornAngel666

            LMGs too.

          • LMGS are fine, it’s not my problem you can’t camp in a corner with that target enhancing sight and go 60-0 every game, unless you mean the DEWs.

          • RebornAngel666

            At least it’s not like m27 from ghosts.. Right

          • jordanxbrookes

            Well someone had to defend it since everyone jumped off the bandwagon. Oh and if I never complained or bitched then how would things get fixed? Hmmm? Mr Doge?

          • Partyin’ Pete

            “If I never complained or bitched then how would things get fixed? Hmmm? Mr Doge?” I thought you were one of the few logical members on this site, but damn. Are you some sort of crusader? They’ll fix what they need to fix, and you act as if they listen intently to YOUR pissing and moaning. Nobody said you had to defend Ghosts, either. The arrogance of this post is sickening.

          • RebornAngel666

            THANKYOU!!!

          • RebornAngel666

            Sometimes I think you’re smart, then I just think you’re a dumbass.. Lol. Weird. But ya you did defend ghosts, now you hate on aw.. Kinda annoying isn’t it? Geez.

          • RebornAngel666

            Don’t like you. But i agree with the first part. Bye. (Y)

          • Eric Mandzuk

            Lol I’m dumb it takes time to get it right kid so STFU

          • jordanxbrookes

            They had an extra year and they got more things broken than a normal 2-year dev cycle. Rather than sucking up to Activision how about you get some brains and face facts that AW’s launch should have been A LOT better.

          • Eric Mandzuk

            Sucking up to activision how kid I have no problems with the game

          • jordanxbrookes

            By not acknowledging the problems that a lot of people are having and thinking that just because you’re fine that everyone else has to suffer, kid.

          • ClonetrooperDJ

            continue sucking IW’s cock you know if AW is so bad why don’t you go back to Ghosts o wait yeah there are what 7k people on CoD Ghosts max?

          • RebornAngel666

            Off topic.. But one word to you. Hideous.

          • Mario Rivera

            They need to respect my money and not give me anything less than a polished product after the 3 years they had to do so. The glitches, weapon balance, spawns and connections are simply inexcuseable. You have to remember that AW wasnt given to you, it was SOLD to you. The quality assurance testing in this game was obviously very poor.

          • Eric Mandzuk

            STFU kid give them a break

          • jordanxbrookes

            Why do you call everyone who says something bad about AW a kid? What are you? One of those adults who act 12 down the mic? PATHETIC.

          • Eric Mandzuk

            I call everyone kid I’m 34 b ur PATHETIC kid

          • jordanxbrookes

            You just proved what I said. GG.

          • Eric Mandzuk

            Lol how kid

          • jordanxbrookes

            So you’re stupid as well as pathetic? Interesting, tell me more.

          • Mario Rivera

            Lol, idiots like you are why they get away with half assing us.

          • Eric Mandzuk

            Lol I’m a idiot that’s why the game is fuked up that makes sense kid

          • Mario Rivera

            Its because ppl like you are satisfied with paying for half assed products so thats exactly what they give us.

          • Eric Mandzuk

            But I have no problems with the product kid

          • jordanxbrookes

            So poor, they were non-existent.

          • Diego Diniz

            Lag is Hudge here too Bro! Its so annoying play COD with Lag…

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Well technically BO2 used to have SBMM as well until they removed it, which is why we have the connections like they are now. Keep in mind they’ve been patching these connections for 2 years, so it will obviously be better than a game that just came out. but yeah, SBMM has got to go. I don’t understand why they thought it was a good idea, seeing as how BO2 had it, everyone was against it so treyarch changed it, and now people like it because it’s connection based. It makes no sense why that seems like the best route to go. Especially when they already have a ranked playlist.

          • justchill

            but it is sometimes necessary since it but less average players at a huge disadvantage since they may not have mastered the exo movements. removing SBMM can also make the game boring since it becomes less competitive

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            BO2 has no SBMM and people find that game the best.

          • ccrows

            ^ You want Competitive? GO PLAY RANKED PLAY.

            The connection in pubs is BROKEN, and the worst than I’ve ever seen from COD4 all the way through this game.

            As bad as BO2 was at launch, at least I wasn’t lagging into walls without moving.

            SH is gonna have to remove the SBMM, or this will go down as the worst DLC playlists in the history of COD…

          • justchill

            people play in clans in league play. it isn’t good for solo guys.

            from my experience bo2 was much worse than this game .but this game is still worse than ghost.. due to exo movements it is natural to have bad hit detection. in other cods you go find a guy and shoot him, in this game people are shooting in air , using ex abilities dashing back and forth and boost slamming. so how can you expect no lag.

            this is reality. just because they took three years that doesn’t mean it may be lag free.it is not easy managing the servers of millions of people due to the ex movements……

            but the frequent host migrations is still disappointing

          • ccrows

            OK then take a map like Detroit which has (on average) very little EXO-Movement.

            ^ Why does that map lag just as bad as a much higher EXO-Movement map like say Horizon?

            I’m not buying it.

            BO2 “at launch” was pretty bad with lag.

            What do both games have in common one month in after launch? SBMM.

            BO2 got MUCH BETTER after it removed SBMM, SH needs to do the same with this game…

          • justchill

            lag is different for different people. detroit was more fast pace than horizon, so it kind balances it out.

            bo2 had much better CONNECTION after removing SBMM, not better EXPERIENCE.

            some people already mastered the exo movements so the can easily shoot while in the air and use the movements to evade fire fairly quickly. if these people get matched with regular people who are used to the old ways, then the game could send half the people to the classic playlist, wasting the game feature that the developers work hard on…..

          • Partyin’ Pete

            The exo movements have nothing to do with, I have no idea what you’re on about. There are some connection issues, but this is some of the best hit detection in any CoD to date.

          • Luis

            Im curious about something. Is skill based on number of wins ratio or what is it made of? If that’s why I can’t find many player then it would finally make sense. Guess I’m too good in some area to find noobs. Do the less skilled people have a worse connection? I don’t lag at all. Just hard finding a game sometimes

          • ccrows

            It could be KD/SPM/Rank or “all of the above” that part isn’t defined.

            However every so often I will land in a lobby with no rank higher than 25-30 and then I get booted right before the match starts.

            SBMM is real, the lag is real, and SBMM (along with wall hacks) is ruining this game…

          • Mr Doge

            Finally someone in the exact same situation at all. I know SBMM exists but I never run into connection issues unless I have Strict NAT which is a normal thing for any CoD. I wonder who even said SBMM was in the game???

          • ClonetrooperDJ

            I don’t have connection problems all i am waiting for is the Balance patch and then im back on AW

          • justchill

            your compare a game that is almost two years to a game that is less than a month. bo2 used to lag badly before

          • ccrows

            ^ & what happened? Treyarch removed SBMM less than a month in and the connection VASTLY IMPROVED!

            We are not too far off from a month in this game, and SBMM is still in.

            Clock is ticking SH. The longer they leave SBMM in, the more DLC they will be chasing away…

        • RebornAngel666

          Aren’t you fucking lucky! Every lobby I go in is full of try hard asshples and my team rage quits or sucks, and we lose desperately fuck this gsme

        • MichiganerE

          Same here.

        • UKG AaroN

          I don’t get any lag on EU connection but when i play with some of my American friends i lag (which is understandable) but so do they. Very weird.

        • xXNightBomberXx

          Honestly you people are definitely CoD haters. If your lagging, its your connection, if your host migrating its trying to give a better host so you DONT lag. But your right SH is gonna ignore it because there is no problem with it, its your connection. Jesus stop being babies, if you your complaining about lag, stop playing the game because your getting mad at yourself by keep playing the game. -_-

          • ccrows

            ^ BS!

            I STILL own EVERY COD game since COD4 (minus WAW), and the connection is better on the older games. (& yes I’ve been going back to check on some of them)

            I’m splitting time right now with BO2 when I can’t take the lag in this game anymore.

            QUIT BEING A SLEDGEHAMMER GAMES NUTHUGGER.

            YOUTUBE IS GROWING BY THE DAY WITH VIDS SHOWING HOW SBMM IS RUINING THIS GAME…

          • Mr Doge

            Really man don’t bring in the “I’ve been playing since CoD 4” bullshit. No one cares that you have been. You are just as relevant as someone who has been playing since AW came out. Also if your only arguments are, “Been lagging into a wall”(Which probably only happened once due to shitty host) and a YouTube link to SBMM search results, you’re not making a very good statement. Who in the fuck mentioned SBMM was in the game anyway?

          • jordanxbrookes

            I dedicate a YouTube channel around Call of Duty, yet I’m a “CoD Hater” because I said something negative? Just GTFO.

          • Mr Doge

            Thank you, someone who has common sense and doesn’t bitch. THANK YOU!

          • Partyin’ Pete

            That is an incredibly ignorant comment.

        • Favorite Ape

          I don’t get how Aussies say that kangaroos hop. I’ve seen countless kangaroos and every time they are just sitting there. Sure, I’ve seen YouTube videos of them hopping and some people say they do but I’ve never seen it. I just don’t think its a wide spread thing. Some may hop, but like I said, I’ve never experienced it myself.

        • Vyas

          I’m so pissed off too, I had the game since day one, now level 50, the first 2 weeks was just beautifully smooth 20 to 30 kills, now I’m lagging all the times, I’m being ranked in the middle with only 12 or so kills. Milliseconds counts in this game and I’ve been hitting wall so many times, missing jumps and missing target after shooting dead on target but then later see that the other player had killed me first. They need to do something to fix that. They freeking got $12billions worth of sales already.

        • Henrik

          I live in Denmark, and I rarely get into a lag lobby.

        • Faolan

          I come accross the acational lag spike. But iv never had it lag every game. Now I will say that the game does need a few things fixed. The first 2 are the head shots and body shots. It takes 4 shots in the head to kill a target. In my opinion, thats a unfathomable amount of shots to the head. What ever happen to 2 shots and you’re dead? BO2 had a greeat head shot system.
          The shots to kill a target is also a little high. About 8 shots at most ranges. I critisized Ghosts because the TTK was way to quick. Well I critisise AW for being way to long. It really should be 5-6 MAX. Specialy with being able to dodge and jump etc.
          And finaly. The 3erd thing is the EM1 energy weapon. And the Bal-27. I honestly do find these 2 guns to be OP. The Bal-27 has almost NO recoil. Its a virtual laser beam. This needs to be fixed. And the EM1 just melts people. It fires way to long and does a redicules amount of damage. There is almost no way to survive a EM1. I honestly think it needs a damage nerf and a overheat buff.
          Other then that, I like the game. Its fun, not to competitve. And its something new. It needs a few tweaks but for the most part, im happy with it. But it is a COD. So everyone will complain about something because its COD, and not battlefield.

        Not sure what console your on but there is no longer sbmm on xbox1. I’m on my fifth prestige and I get matched with ppl that are no prestige any level, and most of the time lower prestige than myself. This has been happening ever since the last update, best of luck to you that have not experienced the noob infested lobbies yet, change should come soon!

        • ccrows

          360, however SBMM is still being used on all consoles.

          GS and MC are dodging and weaving questions being asked about that on Twitter.

          However they will be in for a very rude awakening when they try to push the DLC, if this BS is still in the game.

          Fortunately more and more people are getting vocal about his…

          • 360? High Moon has done a terrible port to the 360, you’re better off upgrading to the one.

      • Mini

        how will this be inconsistent? I really doubt it will be better than the guns we have now.

        • ccrows

          you just answered your own question…

          • Mini

            so you are implying it’s going to be worse? The gun is not out. Wait until it comes out and then comment.
            And if I don’t know what you actually mean by inconsistent. You are acting as it’s obvious I just answered my own question when I don’t even know what you mean. You even put air quotes. LMFAo

          • ccrows

            *sigh* I’m talking about all the lag that the SBMM is causing.

            It really doesn’t matter which weapon you use when you are lagging all over the place.

            I put in some games tonite, but the garbage MM is still there.

            Now I’m gonna go play some BO2 for a little bit and enjoy watching not lagging into walls, or dying from 2 bullets after I connected with the first 6…

          • Mini

            If you are talking about lag for skilled based matchmaking, then stick to that. What does that have to do with the gun?

            What you basically said in your first comment is that the gun balance would be inconsistent because only season pass/dlc holders will get it. Similarly, the Ripper from Ghosts.

    • Joonatan Haataja

      sucks to be playing on the other platforms then lol

    • dansnedd

      you have to blame Activision for this they did a deal with Microsoft for a few years ago to secure the DLC for xbox first. i think it was a 5 year deal they did around the time BO2 released.

    • Will WilFredo Mendoza

      Because whining will solve everything right??

    • And that’s why I have an Xbox One. All I really play is Halo and Call of Duty so a Playstation wouldn’t really work for me 🙂

    • Tricky VIk

      “Xbox is testing if the maps are any good and if the weapon is OP by the time other platforms hit it’ll be patched and you can decide if you want to buy the map pack, see it that way.”
      c;

    • extra po later

      suck it up or get an xbox
      simple truth

  • Now thats one funky gun.

  • Superdonut

    thank god! Xbox will be the better for cod than Playstation because of exclusive guns and earlier dlc releases! i was getting worried that cod would actually be equal!

    • We eventually get the map packs. I will laugh if we get these guns at a later time.

      Edit: It doesn’t say that the guns are an “exclusive”.Stop making things up, lol.

      • Juses

        we got it a month late in ghosts…

    • Dr. Salim

      I prefer better graphics than timed DLC exclusives, we’re all gonna get the damn thing anyway.

  • Juses

    And one month later on ps4 and pc D:

    • Ech!

      Here we go again XD

  • Gooby

    So are PS players get this gun eventually? Dolan pls

    • Dr. Salim

      Yes.

  • Juses

    sounds like a directed enegery weapon… and we all know how much those suck….
    looks awesome though

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      We don’t have an AR variant though, so it could be good. Or at least the best directed energy weapon. It looks sexy as hell by default, so I guess there’s that, lol.

      • Juses

        looks like a smg variant to me…

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          “This pack will come with an all-new weapon, the AE4 directed energy Assault Rifle.”

          • Heh, we quoted the same thing to Juses~

          • Juses

            that wasn’t there before it was added after i wrote that

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            it was there 2 minutes ago, i dont think the article was edited.

          • Juses

            it was there was only 1 pic and this “The AE4 and AE4 Widowmaker will be available as part of the first DLC pack, Havoc, for users that don’t own the “Season Pass. More details regarding Havoc DLC pack will be announced soon; Havoc is set to release in January on Xbox Live.”

          • Mr Doge

            Wow Juses sees da future again. Havoc eh? Cool name for a DLC pack. Wonder if their gonna do what Ghosts and Black Ops did and make a name with the initials of the DLC packs.

    • Fernando Carrillo

      They made the em1 so much stronger in the new update

  • Juses

    maybe its a flamethrower 🙂

    • “Assault Rifle” ?!?!

      • Juses

        …? i said flamethrower…. like the one from black ops.

        • Yeah, I know what that is, lol. It says “This pack will come with an all-new weapon, the AE4 directed energy Assault Rifle.”

          • Juses

            sorry… i didn’t refresh

  • Dr. Salim

    Im sick and tired of having AR/SMG DLC weapons. I want something like a shotgun or a LMG.

    • jooker-jr

      I agree.

    • I beleive this is a DEW.

    • Fernando Carrillo

      Who said this is the last dlc weapon in this game?

  • Juses

    i wonder if this was cut from the game like the peacekeeper from BO2 was

    • Dr. Salim

      The PK was cut?

      • Juses

        i mean it was supposed to in bo2 at launch but they decided to make it a dlc gun.

    • Gooby

      If it was cut, some hackers would have have access to it by now like how the people in Destiny found access to “cut” content, silly Juses

    • The PK was one sexy gun… *_*

      • Gooby

        The way it sounded when you shot it was sexy too

        • Juses

          only with suppressor

    • I dont know, but I hope I like it as much as the Peacekeeper. I used that gun so much.

  • Gooby

    I missed the marksman rifle category from ghosts 🙁

    • MichiganerE

      Why? It was just semi-automatic assault rifles.

      • I missed them too, I loved having the ability to be mobile and have a actual scope on without having to quickscope. MK14 EBR from ghosts still stays as my favorite weapon.

      • Gooby

        They have a different feel to them, plus for me at least, takes a bit more “skill” rather than spray and praying down tangos with norm ARs

        • MichiganerE

          That’s cool, but they could been considered assault rifles.

    • Aymen Skiken

      mk14 ?

      • Gooby

        That’s only 1, plus it feels underpowered in AW

        • MichiganerE

          Yeah, I can agree with that. So far, the best weapons are the HBR, BAL, AK-12 and IMR.

        • It’s is underpowered, and it needs a actual scope, not optics like acog, holo ect.

  • Siftblade of Rivia

    So does the default gun have some locked on variant that gets removed in the variant? That’s a weird scope on the base gun (the one with the red laser).

  • Juses

    dlc 1 release date on January 11th? Ripper was released month before devastation,

    • Keshav Bhat

      DLCs do not release on Sundays.

      • jordanxbrookes

        It will be released late January so January 27th will be my best guess.

        • Mr Doge

          I don’t see why they chose a random date like 11 December if they releasing the DLC pack Late January. Either they chose a random date or the new weapon actually comes out 1 month exactly before Havoc.

      • Mr Doge

        That is true but some do tend to even though CoD has a tendency to release it on Tuesdays/Wednesdays depending on where you live. The latest DLC for GTA 5 was released on a Thursday/Friday I believe so yeah. You never know.

  • itsritdude

    I would get this instantly if the money goes to dedicated servers.

  • Baldmanz_RAGE

    I think if this game didn’t have Call of Duty in the title the game could stand on its own. These guns are too ridiculous!! This just isn’t COD anymore!! I don’t think we’ll ever get back there. Oh well!! It may be time to finally grow up and stop playing video games:(

  • AcePhoenix007

    Good thing it’s not based off the Widowmaker from TF2.

  • Freeze

    really makes me mad, how about you release cool weapons in the base game, and in the dlc, then everyone is happy, I mean I’ll by season pass anyways but.

  • Stefan Lang

    If it can compete with the BAL then Im sold. Im aware that the HBR is great but that rate of fire on the base weapon just cant compete especially if someone has great gun skill.

    • Juses

      bal is getting nerfed

      • Gooby

        I hope so, instead of buffing all the other guns just so they can be up to par with the BAL; if they buff ALL the other guns, they are “technically” raising the TTK and we don’t want that…

        • Stefan Lang

          But they should. The SMGs are pretty bad.

          • Gooby

            Nerf all the ARs! 🙂

          • Mr Doge

            No need to nerf the AR’s. HBRa3, AK-12, IMR are fine. They just need buff SMG range. Also I reckon they should make the crosshairs a lot closer together when sprinting with Gung-Ho and a shotgun. Crosshairs as big as a LMGs one lol

    • Mr Doge

      TmarTn made a video on it. The patch has been released for Xbox 360. It kicks like a fucking Skorpion from BO2. Actually way higher.

      • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

        I think they also patched it fir the PS4, it has soo much recoil now.

  • Paul Thomas

    That Widowmaker varient looks nice

  • Friendly Neighborhood Miguel

    I only care about the Zombies DLC!!!

  • So this might be the next weapon that is op after the BAL gets nerfed eh?

    • Favorite Ape

      Pay to win starts on aw.

  • How about we you release Dedicated servers before getting to dlc? their is no point in getting more guns and and maps if all we are going to get is lag.

    • RdJokr

      But dedi servers are already there…

      • Favorite Ape

        Where? I’ve never connected to one. What’s the IP of the dedi you, or anyone, has connected to?

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          Go to reddit, people have posted facts. it’s probably buried behind all the new posts by now, but I saw a post where someone did tests.

          • Favorite Ape

            I do tests every time I play. Check your router log. No dedicated servers. The only fact is you seem to buy into random posts if it fits your hopes and dreams.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Lol I found the subredit. Test it yourself. Read the comments as well, you might learn something. http://www.reddit.com/r/CodAW/comments/2lqwli/i_did_some_extreme_testing_on_the_outgoing/

          • Favorite Ape

            Sorry dude. That’s already been debunked. That guy never took note of the amount of data being sent to those servers. They turned out to simply be the stats servers not dedicated game servers.

    • Xecho

      You must be some retard who lives under a rock.

    • Steve

      Dedicated servers have nothing to do with the lag most people are getting, it’s skill based match making.

  • MichiganerE

    So, does the Windowmaker turn enemies you shoot into windows, or does it shoot windows at enemies and kill them? I just need some clarification.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Widowmaker, probably makes more sense now.

      • MichiganerE

        Oh, so it turns enemies into widows when you shoot them, or does it shoot widows at enemies and kill them? I just wanna know.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          It kills soldiers and therefore makes their wives widows 😛

          • MichiganerE

            The swag is real in this shit.

          • hazmat

            if thats so, only straight married men and gay married women can be killed by it, everyone else is safe!

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Lol

        • Mr Doge

          Maybe it has secret 3D printing technology that makes widows as you shoot.

          • MichiganerE

            Holy shit… Future technology here I come!

      • MichiganerE

        What? I already corrected myself yesterday. Try actually looking through all the replies.

    • It just gives you the window of opportunity to realize the weapon sucks.

      • MichiganerE

        Yeah, that makes sense.

  • Michael

    I hope they do character customization dlc like in cod ghost. I thought it was a cool idea, though I never bought one micro dlc for ghost, and I didn’t even get the season pass.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      You didn’t buy the snoop dog VO pack and the weed camo? You’re not a true gamer!

      /s

      • fkn casuals I bet u he can’t hit dank 420 noscopes

      • Michael

        The snoop dog one actually gets annoying. I would buy the drill instructor pack if I had to pick and choose one of them. And I don’t do drugs soooo…. Yeah, ya dumb Kappa 😛

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          Lol I was joking.

          • Michael

  • Adam

    If this is a directed energy weapon then there is a 100% chance I won’t be using it.

    • Fernando Carrillo

      The only one that is weak is the epm3, they increased the power of the em1 a lot

      • Steve

        Yea I’ve noticed that the em1 is a lot better, they definetly increased the damage. I’d love if they did the same to the epm3 but only by a little bit, so it’s not op.

    • Imagine it like the m4 or something but it shoots lasers. What’s so wrong with that?

  • Ugh, just when I planned to buy premium for bf4 activision tempts me with the season pass, 2014 is so Not Safe For Wallets

    No.

  • Get out.

  • J Sama

    EM1 is OP as shit on last gen.. I’ll take a lobby full of BALs over a lobby with just a couple of EM users, It’s extremely OP, you can’t even return fire most of the time.. it’s zap, death, respawn… zap, death, respawn. So stupid

  • Looks like no ammo/overheat, probably semi-auto and has visible tracers based on different beam colors.

  • Rorke File

    One gun only is disappointing me, on Battlefield you get maps, guns and vehicles. I thought they had a new engine 🙁

    • Daniel

      In BF the dlc guns are just a re skin of the full game guns, same stats. And EA cut those from the retail game to sell as dlc
      In CoD DLC guns are all new

    • Mr Doge

      YOU JUST HAD TO BRING BATTLEFIELD INTO THIS, DIDN’T YOU?! JEEZ EVERY POST IS “Oh but in BATTLEFIELD we have LEVELUTION”. Guess what Rorke File, NO ONE GIVES A SHIT.

      • Rorke File

        I wan that COD also has much, look at the money they have it can happen. And the servers also need some clean up.

  • Ryan Collewijn

    always on free for all try hards with snipers easy 15+ killstreak achieved (= almost yesterday dna bomb but lagg came in and i died…

  • Ak74u

    I really like AW but they need to fix a few things. I have a good internet service and never lagged until playing AW matches it’s really laggy and second, they need to fix the spawns. The spawns are really bad.

    • Baldmanz_RAGE

      Saying that the spawns are really bad is putting it lightly!!! I almost broke my controller because of spawning directly in front of the enemy over and over again. I haven’t had that much rage since MW3!!

  • I must admit the gun and the Widow Maker variant are really badass! I give props to Sledgehammer for coming up with many of these variants with cool, creative names. Albeit the Beer & Pretzels XMG is a novelty I may never use anytime soon, it’s still a funny name!

    I’m on PS3 so I’ll have to wait an extra month like many others. 🙁 But look at the bright side…that gives them time to buff or nerf the gun if needed! Just like the BAL-27 that has so much damn recoil now! Thank God, right!

    I have very few gripes about this game thus far and the ones I did have were patched. Now if we could only get dedicated servers! But that’s asking too much ya know! That’s the one promise I’m afraid they’ll never make good on.

    • Tricky VIk

      “Right on, and at least get rid of SBMM if we can’t have dedi’s.”

  • Carrisi

    I stupidly brought the season pass with my copy of the game. I’ve stopped playing AW until the lag is fixed, I think it’s more the lag compensation that is the problem, if some one has a shit connection that’s their problem don’t compensate against good connections!!!

  • Broken SBMM P2P- piece of shit game.. Where are the D.servers SH/Bullshitvision??

  • drjakeyoung

    Sorry but what about all us lot on the PS4 with the season pass? We have to put up with constant lag, bad spawns and OP weapons. I have already payed £100 for this game, and as usual they give exclusivity to xbone. Why can’t it be like battlefield where premium members get it a couple of weeks early on every platform then everyone else gets it? It just pisses me off that i payed the same amount for the season pass as the xbone owners did but i still have to wait. Fuck you actishit.

    • It was announced well before this game even came out that Xbox would once again have exclusivity like it has done for god knows how long now.

      This is why i bought an Xbox One and not a PS4. As well as preferring Xbox style controllers over PS4’s.

      You want DLC contect first? Get an Xbox and get off the bandwagon that’s been going round in circles for 2 year.

      • drjakeyoung

        You mean i should spend another £400 on a console that will probably get an updated slim version in a couple of years? I understand where your coming from, as i have thought about it due to certain games, but having just payed £100 for this game, i think i have a right to complain about activillan fucking me over.

        • They’re not screwing anyone over. They have a contract with Microsoft to get DLC first (which I believe Sony originally turned away). This is old news now anyway for anyone who’s interested in playing Call of Duty.

          It might be that Sony fights for the next contract once Microsoft runs out causing a spike in PS sales, who knows. But for now AW and CoD choose Xbox for their “chosen” platform.

          As for an updated “slim” version. Probably will happen. But that’s a different issue entirely. At the end of the day, an Xbox is an Xbox.

          • I play on Xbox One and kind of want to be tempted to buy the Season Pass, but I’m sorry, a directed energy assault rifle does not entice me – no matter how early I get it. Your not missing anything dude.

          • LunatikToon

            I cant wait to be honest, the EM1 recks people and if this is as good or better then dam lets go

          • Tricky VIk

            “Didn’t they renew the contract last year?..”
            “That’s what I heard.”

      • Juses

        Buying a Xbox one for cod is the most retarded thing I heard of.

        • Why’s that?

          I started playing CoD on a pre-owned 360 when MW3 came out, my brother got me into it. I’ll try the odd game here and there, but CoD is my main game and has been for BO2 and Ghosts.

          I bought an Xbox One for the Blu-Ray, AW, preference of controller, and as it’s now considered “current” gen.

          There’s nothing retarded about that.

          The fact that Microsoft get DLC first is just a little bonus. 🙂

        • And let’s face it, your just pissed that you were wrong about the character loot being DLC.

          Your a nobody who happens to know nothing. Funny that.

          • Juses

            You’re*

          • Juses

            And there’s still no proof that I was wrong.

          • Juses

            And who are you sir?

        • Why the hell would you say that? I show a lot of respect to PS players as they have their own opinion. I do understand you play on PS4 and that’s totally fine. But saying that Xbox One is retarded with now substantial evidence whatsoever? That’s just plain B.S. If there’s something you think is retarded about the console, feel free to express your opinion. But otherwise just be quiet as you sound like a whining bitch.

          • Juses

            I said buying a console just for cod is retarded.

          • So your impatient. I considered the PS4 when shopping for what was “Next Gen” but realized the Xbox One suited more of my needs. I play cod a lot and getting the DLC first is a big bonus. Just keep in mind you’ll get the DLC eventually, but it seems as if you need to learn patients.

          • Juses

            What are you talking about? I don’t care about getting aw dlc a month late. I haven’t played that broken game in a few days. And besides its only 30 days lol

          • Well I’m glad to hear your okay with the DLC launch dates. Just stop ranting about how Xbox sucks. It makes you seem like a Playstation fan boy

          • Juses

            I never said Xbox sucks you tard.

          • Jasy

            Alright, flip the spectrum. I’d bet anything that if PS4 got the dlc early, then you would be doing the same thing, whinning. And don’t come back saying that you would have bought the PS4 because it “Suited your needs.” You sir, would then know how us PlayStation players have felt the last 4 years or so. :p

          • I might be disappointed, but I wouldn’t bitch about it. Besides, cod isn’t the only game I play 🙂

        • Carrisi

          There are millions of players that only play cod, including myself. I’m sure activision even wrote an article about this.

          • Juses

            No, years ago people only played cod. It’s definitely not millions.

          • Carrisi

            You might be right there, I even brought titanfall and destiny but that was mainly due to ghosts being unplayable. Looks like cods continuos failure is good for other games sales.

    • Keshav Bhat

      It’s been this way since Modern Warfare 2. Xbox gets all DLC first, for around 30 days before it hits other platforms.

      This is the same way it was with Ghosts. The “Ripper” weapon came out first for Xbox Season Pass owners.

      You will get the weapon before non-Season Pass members get it on your platform.

  • Guywithbrains

    Speaking of guns, it is funny how every year new Call of Duty brings some OP gun that everyone uses. Let’s see…

    MW1: M16A4
    World at War: MP40 (don’t forget Juggernaut)
    MW2: UMP-45
    Black Ops 1: Famas
    MW3: ACR
    Black Ops 2: MSMC
    Ghosts: MSBS
    AW: BAL-27

    We’ll see what next year brings but let’s hope this OP weapon cycle ends…

    • I also noticed the AN94 in Black Ops 2…but an excellent list!

    • Carrisi

      To be fair modern warefare titles at least have op guns in every class for example in mw3 there was mp7 and striker too.

      • brad

        And ghosts basically had 1 or2 in each gun class. vector/ mtar, Remington r5/ msbs, m27, bulldog

    • J Sama

      For BO2 it was the PDW before the patch

  • TheShadowReaper

    a gun accompanying 4 maps in a DLC for bait. COD DLC all over again. yep.

  • Maybe you should take the time to make a profile first!

    • Juses

      It was a account. But then he deleted the comment.

  • meow

    ive got a season pass! kinda total waste as i dont play AW much any more:/

    • Lol, that’s what I did with Ghosts. Bought the season pass on the launch week. Don’t let one extra map trick you…

  • ApoX

    I wonder where this weapon is/went..

  • Diego Diniz

    I just wanna be able to play WITHOUT LAG!!! Juses Christ…

  • killerbunniesKB

    This game is awesome and yes it has it’s problems but they will get fixed just like every other call of duty do you guys remember the first week of black ops 2 holy shit it was nothin but lag but then a patch came out and now there is no lag in black ops 2 so just wait about a week or 2 and there will be no lag

    And if you don’t like the game just don’t play it stop complaining about it

    • Carrisi

      Totally agree about BO2, it wasn’t until the January after launch that it was playable, think it was more a hit box problem in that case. I personally moan about AW out of dissapointment, I’m on of those only play cod gamers hence the frustration after ghosts and now AW.

  • killerbunniesKB

    And I really am looking for the up comein extra items comeing out in dec there adding a couple new weapon variants

  • Psychomaggot105

    Looks cool and all but until they switch to regional connections instead of sbmm I ain’t playin. Tried playing a few matches and they’re filled with lag. Shoot first die first, bullets not registering, spawns, and camping.

    • Carrisi

      Yep, that’s My AW experience too

    • Kobrah

      I haven’t come across a lot of that on PS4 in Australia

  • Ryumoau

    Weapon looks interesting and i’m mainly a assualt rifle guy anyway, so i’m happy this is the first dlc weapon. Just too bad ps4 has to wait till probably january. 🙁

  • futuristic lazer deagle plsplsplspls

  • Still no anti-cheat.
    Hackers ruined the game already…

      Well at least on PS4 there are no hackers at all. Only suspicious action was today when my teammate went 0-158 by killing himself all the time with MAAWS.

      • brad

        He was reverse boosting,

        • Mr Doge

          Or watched a TmarTn video on how to get supply drops faster.

          • brad

            Yeah or that lol good old tmartn

  • DopeAap

    Hey, it’s shiny, so why not spend 50 bucks on it? Any one with me?

  • LeJunny

    I don’t lag in AW you guys either have shitty connection or you guys still play on 360 and PS3

    • Favorite Ape

      Or your just an idiot who wouldn’t know lag even if it slapped you in the face.

      • ScOott

        It can’t be that bad if he can’t notice it

        • Favorite Ape

          I’m sure that’s it. He has never had lag. Make that two idiots.

          • ScOott

            U can’t read can you, which makes you the idiot, I said it can’t be that bad, I never said he didn’t have any, this major lag everyone is talking about I have only experienced a hand full of times out of the hundreds of games I have played, the rest of the time I’m not effected by it, don’t understand how that makes me an idiot

          • Mr Doge

            Holy shit more people who don’t buy into this Lag in every game crap. Some people just can’t realize that its their internets fault and not the games. Maybe try to make NAT open or some shit? Anyway good on ya Scott for standing up to this bullshit. 🙂

          • Favorite Ape

            It’s everybody’s internet is the problem. I play on t2 and it must be my internet. That’s why this game is so laggy and not other games. Another person with zero knowledge of how dedicated servers or listen servers (p2p) works. Keep spreading the bullshit and Activision will keep thinking players are idiots (which you are). Thanks for helping the game quality.

          • Guest

            Do you have this knowledge?

          • Favorite Ape

            I do. I have the power!
            I could go into all the ways dedicated servers are better than players game consoles a.k.a “listen servers” but it would be a really long post.
            Here’s a very cod optimistic opinion (written by a fanboy) of the difference, but there is far more to it than this.

            What would make you an idiot is if you didn’t want the best possible connection from a game that has made billions. Why would anyone argue to keep the worst connection of all modern fps games? That would be an idiot.

          • ScOott

            Your trying to start an argument with me and I haven’t said anything about what your talking about, I never said I didn’t want the best possible connection, and I know some people are struggling with lag I’ve seen it on YouTube, but if this guy says he hasn’t got no lag then that don’t make him an idiot that’s all I’m saying because the lag everyone is talking about is not actually effecting me either, yes it’s their and needs fixing to make it fair to everyone who is suffering from it but It doesn’t make me an idiot for not noticing it, it makes me very lucky

          • Favorite Ape

            True. Ignorance is bliss.

          • ScOott

            Erghhf I’m not being ignorant, why is it so hard to belive that for some of us lag is minimal, I’m not saying I have better internet than you, I’m not saying your internet is poor, I’m not even saying I have never experienced lag in advanced warefare, I used to lag constantly in black ops 2 so this makes a nice change for me …

    • Carrisi

      It’s lag compensation that most are talking about I think

  • Humza Qureshi

    People need to understand that SBMM means that if you’re good then you’re most likely playing people with good internet since those are the people who do good in COD> everyones op

    • Carrisi

      No, in my experience people with good connections are those getting compensated the most.

  • Ben

    Haven’t played this game in a week, SBMM gone yet? Its getting so boring…

    • Carrisi

      Nope. Popped on for one game earlier, didn’t even finish it and I was gone. In domination you can literally get to any flag so quickly it’s just random and wrong.

    Instead of Complaining about something, I will say what I noticed about the gun: It looks like it has a built in grip, and obviously its directed energy weapon.

    Anyone else having issues playing classic death match? says no games found.

  • OMGitsQuant

    Look guys, the game came out not too long ago, so expect there to be some issues with connections and lag. BO2 isnt laggy because its been out for two years, they’ve had time to fix the lag and connection errors.

    Since AW isnt old at all, quit new actually, they havent had time to fix the lag issues. Keep in mind they also need to keep up with other problems like, glitches, and bugs, just like every other game needs to do.

    So just lay off SledgeHammer games, this game is great and looks fantastic. Give them time to fix all the problems and issues.

    • Gooby

      That’s that I’ve been trying to tell them…It’s not even a month yet! It’s understandable if nothing is fixed after 3 months of the game release

      • OMGitsQuant

        Exactly. Sledgehammer games is doing their best, and I think they did a great job with this game. Its brilliant.

      • Gooby, this series is eleven fucking years old and has even less players then black ops 2 or mw3, why does it take them so long to fix the same multiplayer we have had for 8 YEARS? People have a right to be angry,
        BO2, which was 2 years ago had allready received backlash for the bullcrap SBMM and SH thinks it’s okay to pull it again? No!

        If you keep taking this so lightly they will keep doing this!

        Not to mention there are allready major failures within the game itself, they brag about how realistic the animation is but mags don’t even come out of guns when reloading, 40% of it has been ripped from ghosts, they took out a AR and are more then likely to repackage it as DLC, and most of the weapon selection has weapons allready taken from ghosts!

        • Juses

          11*

        • Gooby

          You do have a point… And about SBMM, are Condrey/Schofield or ATVI aware and have acknowledged the issue? (i.e. through tweets or an article)

    • Juses

      lol the cod community has gone down lol. you guys are ok with activision releasing broken games… thats really sad

      • “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

        ~ Albert Einstein

    • You don’t see to understand the disappointment I’m going through, so let me just throw it at you and maybe you too will open your eyes. This game have the same issues BO2 had in the beginning of it’s release date but worse: horrible gun balance (probably the worst I ever seen in a CoD), spawns, the scorestreak doesn’t even work unless you upgrade them and even if you do it’s near impossible to get. (at least in BO2 the scorestreak damn work !!). Skill based matckmaking force me to play has if I am in the finals of a million dollar tournament and the connection? the worst of a multiplayer game I ever experience. I look at the disk and all that waits for me are tryhards with horrible connection, me screaming at the top of my lungs and force to use the Bal to compete and fight lag; it’s unplayable for me.

      I told myself “how can they possibly f*cked up the gun balance since they have 3 years?” and I also told myself “if there is lagging issues Activision will introduce Dedicated servers since they don’t want people to complain this year” I them when and pre-order….I knew deep down this game would have huge problems but I told myself Activision wouldn’t let it happen due to Ghosts being a let down, boy I was wrong. Not only Activision have let me down so far but Sledgehammer has well. 3 years in development and not even the gun balance they got it right?!! I’m sorry but that’s completely unacceptable. I agree with Juses and I’m glad someone else if opening their eyes, this game multiplayer is not garbage but broken like any CoD at it’s release date, period.

      “Since AW isnt old at all, quit new actually” Why should I wait ??? I paid my hard earned money for this game and it’s broken. I can take few bugs like the challenge camos etc. but gun balance and scorestreaks not even performing like they should??….A friend online told me “I have come to the realization that nothing work in this game” it’s true, sadly.

      Next year won’t be any different, broken gun balance with broken connection and everyone begging for dedicated servers because that’s what the fans of this franchise do: “hope” for the game to work, “begging” that they will fix connection….they may fix it like they did in BO2 but of course you will have to wait a few months for that to happen. If you know the game will be broken release date why bother to buy it release date??

      Last but not least, I hate this game not because it’s broken but because it crushed my hopes man, I had hopes that it would deliver on everything being in 3 years development. I didn’t fall for the hype, I just told myself “It’s been in 3 years development, it have to f*cking work man”

      2015 is good year though, lot’s of game coming out and I think Titanfall 2 comes out. I didn’t play the first one since I owned a PS4 but maybe that game will fill this void that CoD haven’t been able to fill since MW2 🙁

      • OMGitsQuant

        I do realise your frustration, after playing the game for a couple weeks longer, after my last post, I have realised the faults for this game. I honestly agree with you for almost every part. first, guns, not only are they unbalanced but there isnt any variety in the weapons, after a week or so playing the guns would get “boring” to use, although there is supply drop weapons, they were still quite boring.

        Also the kill streaks suck, this is probably the most disappointing thing in my opinion, BO2 killstreaks were the best, and i really mean it. They were BEST. once again the killstreaks in AW get “boring”. not sure off the top of my head, but I think theres only 10 killstreaks. Which like you said they all suck unless u put extreme upgrades, which are impossible to get.

        I do agree with you in these parts, but we do need to frst see what theyre going to do about it. They NEED to fix these isssues, put some better killstreaks, add more weapons/weapon variety.

        Although those things suck, I do like the fact that u can customize your operator, that is a cool feature, plus the supply drops.
        But Activision NEEDS to fix these problems!!!!!

  • I don’t even know anymore if they’re ever going to remove SBMM. It’s just not my ideal type of playing. I don’t always want to tryhard against people with the same playstyle, if I wanted I’d play ranked. Sometimes I just want to play chill games but it’s never happening thanks to glorious SBMM. In older cods, for example BO2 I’d just leave if the enemy team had unstoppable 6 man M8A1 party, because it’s not fun. If I ever want to play this game I’d have to make a new account, and get 100 suicides after every match to keep myself off from the tryhard games.

    For all the people who think complaining about SBMM is wrong, it’s not. There’s ranked play for that. Maybe you like to play competitive matches all the time, I sure don’t and a lot of people don’t want either.

    • Gooby

      Maybe we should all tweet Condrey and Schofield altogether at the same time, asking when they’re going to remove it; let’s all schedule a day at a set time.

      I see everyone qqing about SBMM alot, has either of the two, or ATVI said anything about it?

    And how much you want to bet that it will be OP? Seen as no game ever seems to be able to add balenced DLC weapons.

  • TheWalkingDon

    First Cod in years, I won’t be buying the DLC. First Cod ever where I stopped playing after less than a month of being out.

    So what time will we get this gun?

  • Whitney Houston

    Cannot DL these guns. I have the season pass, it says that I have it, but when I go to DL the guns it sends me back to the sales menu. FAIL! This same fail happened with the last DLC for Titanfall on my XBONE. Uninstalled and reinstalled season pass to no avail. MORE FAIL FOR CODAW! HOLD THE L FOR THIS GAME SLEDGEHAMMER, IT DESERVES IT!

  • Richard

    i have the season pass but i can download the new weapon. I am an xbox user. Help?
