The new SAC3 non-akimbo Variants and first 10 Royalty Elite Weapon Variants are now live in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on PlayStation 4 and PC. The new SAC3 variants and Royalty variants are available through both Supply Drops and Advanced Supply Drops on PlayStation 4 and PC.

Royalty Weapon Variants

Sledgehammer Games is introducing new Royalty variants of existing guns, which are Elite variants of the weapons. The first 10 Royalty weapon variants are available now on PS4, PC, and Xbox One.

These guns are clad in the same purple and gun-metal camouflage as the Grand Master Prestige armor, and have similar stats to some of the elite versions of weapons you already love.  

Five New SAC3 Variants

Available now on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One. Sledgehammer Games is also introducing five new variants of the SAC3 weapon, in non-akimbo form. These weapons now allow players to use ADS to precisely target enemies.

Each of these variants feature a new single weapon which allow players to ADS for precision targeting. 

Both the new Royalty Elite weapon variants and the SAC3 non-akimbo variants are available now in both Regular and Advanced Supply Drops on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

These variants will not be available on PS3 and Xbox 360 because of hardware limitations.

    glad to see these finally hit ps4.

    • O.G.Bobby Johnson

      Don’t trip come Nov. we will get all of the crap first.

      • Maximiliano Martinez

        True that!

  • TheGamerBeast

    Why aren’t they available for PC yet…

    • O.G.Bobby Johnson

      Because PC is the master race, you have to mod your own…..just joking this whole not everybody getting stuff at the same time is some BS.

      • TheGamerBeast

        they should be out on PC 30 mins ago but still….

    • RdJokr

      It’s Supply Drop content. It’s not something you see immediately. I’m pretty sure that we got these through a playlist update, same as PS4.

      • TheGamerBeast

        yeah i know but don’t we get a normal variant of SAC3 non akimbo unlocked automatically ?

        • RdJokr

          Uhh, no. Base SAC3 is still akimbo. We don’t get a non-akimbo base.

  • Thatlazykid

    Wow i totally forgot about AW
    Poor AW 🙁

  • O.G.Bobby Johnson

    Anybody else notice how Sledgehammer games didn’t tweet about this and all we got from Condrey was a retweet from Charlie Intel. Let’s us know we’re on the bottom of the food chain as far a AW is concerned. I would trade this crap in now but im gonna use it a credit towards BO3.

    Give season pass holders the dlc early. Obviously activision only listens to money so I’ll be willing to pay 55$ for the pass. I know people will say I’m stupid for mentioning that but ps owners ask yourself this ” did you enjoy waiting?”. Well now we have to. I say nobody should have to wait. So activision spoil the ps owners this year ( to make up for the past years) and end this bs.

    • ScOott

      Lol not going to happen..I think it will stay with playstation for many years ..

      • LovekillerX

        Yeah it will probably stay couple of years with Playstation. That was actually a big surprise, I thought they would show us Call of Duty on Microsoft’s conference but then they didn’t mention Call of Duty. I was like “what is going on, does this confirm DLC first on Playstation?”

        I’m happy to see that Playstation owners get to know what it is like to have DLC first. It usually felt like DLC has been available forever and hype has died when Xbox got DLC first.

        • ScOott

          dosent bother me, I got ps4, but il stick with with cod on xbox, going to get that elite controller for it, maybe the year after when I’m used to the ps4 controller il switch then, I reckon it will stay a lot longer than that, How ever you look at it I don’t think Microsoft will ever get it again for numerous reasons ..

          • LovekillerX

            Microsoft probably realized Call of Duty is going downhill and that is why they probably wanted to invest to games like Fallout 4. I think Sony saw the chance to take Call of Duty away from Microsoft.

            If Black Ops 3 turns out to be successful Microsoft might see their mistake.

          • ScOott

            That’s exactly what I thought, Microsoft doesn’t want it any more, and ps4 can bring the hardcore call of duty players to ps4 and sell even more consoles.. Still if I had a rivalry I wouldn’t give up anything knowing the competition would get it, pretty dumb move by Microsoft imo

            May be MLG will be the next to go, now that’s one thing I could live without, if all the “try hards” move over as well lol ..

          • Spodermen

            Scooot haev u herd an1then frum kyle doe

          • ScOott

            Yh I’m still speaking to him, I don’t think he will be coming back tho, Keshav has unbanned him and still can’t get on..

          • Spodermen

            Demn

          • SpetsnazAIRBORNE

            It’s funny that u say they probably want to invest in games like Fallout 4″, Becuase Microsoft has had partnerships with Bethesda since the Fallout 3 days. So they have been big friends for a long time now

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Or the contract ended and Sony seized the opportunity.

          • That’s kinda what he said..

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Not really tbh.

          • I guess you didn’t read it
            “I think sony saw the chance to take call of duty away from Microsoft”
            Basically seizing the opportunity to get dlc first

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Wasn’t really what I meant but meh…

          • Uh huh, sure buddy.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            K, whatever. Keep taking things out of context.

          • I didn’t, but whatever you say again buddy lol

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I Know what I said otherwise I wouldn’t have said that you took me out if context.

          • And what you said was basically what the other guy said lol. You just repeated what he said pretty much lol

          • Spider knows

            Live in denial poor kid. The only thing going downhill is shitbox. I bet even if xbox pulled a cashcow activision didnt want to do shit with them anymore because roughly 25 mil sold > 10 mill shipped ( not even confirmed if xbox sold anywhere near that numer). So like i said kee living in denial.

          • lovekillerDUMB

            Omg are u that stupid? Xbox was trying so hard to get dlc back why in the hell would they not try to sign that’s what there life line was COD yea they just did not try to re sign the contract how stupid

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          It wasn’t that big of a surprise. There’s been clues about it for months and when it didn’t appear at Microsoft’s conference it might as well have been confirmed.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        It’s the new home for the entire generation.

    • Keshav Bhat

      No, that won’t happen anymore as PS gets DLC first now. Even if Season Pass got it first, PS Season Pass would get it first then Xbox and PC Season Pass would get it.

      • Psychomaggot105

        What I’m saying is they should forget this whole exclusive deal.

        • SoulTaker

          That sir is not how a contract works. You can’t just say “Oh you know what I don’t want to hold my end of the bargain anymore in that contract sorry”. Unless you breach the contract and want your ass sued in court.

          • Psychomaggot105

            I take it you know the details of the contract?

          • SoulTaker

            …do you not get what I’m trying to say??? No I don’t know the details, but I do know that if it’s been announced that Sony is getting the DLC early then that means that they signed a contract and you can’t go back on a signed contracted as doing so is breach and again will get your ass sued in court for breaching said contract was it that hard to get my point???You can’t just “forgot about a deal” when a contract has been signed as that is evidence that will get you sued.

          • Psychomaggot105

            Maybe it’s a one year deal? Maybe at any point activision can end the contract? I’m not saying breach the contract. That’s why I said 2016. When IW releases their game. Don’t even bother replying.

          • SoulTaker

            Kind of bored at home so I will reply! 😀
            Just saying if that one dude said Playstation is the new home of Call of Duty I can guarantee this won’t end in one year I’ll take a guess and say maybe 3 years unless Activision has a big change of heart which we know they don’t, and again you can’t just end a contract it has to run it’s course and expire sorry but that’s how contracts work.

          • Psychomaggot105

            Contracts are all different. It all comes down to terms and wording. Since neither know anything is possible(kinda). I just find this exclusivity thing so stupid. The receiving consoles get the dlc on time. On time not early. Then the other gamers have to wait. This time I’m serious don’t reply. I just got back from work and going to bed.

          • SoulTaker

            But dude I’m bored and can’t sleep so having a conversation actually like not gets me bored. ;-;
            As a PC player I agree though I find it bullshit that season pass holders still have to wait even though they basically bought all the DLC but money makes the world go round and I guess Acti is just going to do what they do because people will take it. Also again I doubt when they went into the room they worded something in the contract that says if you’re not happy the contract can be voided no repercussions and the whole ps is now the new home for COD just emphases my point.
            Out of curiosity why do you want me to stop replying do you hate me or find me annoying? :c

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            Your wishful thinking can’t change contract terms or length. None of us know the contract details so yes technically if you want to wish and pray it’s possible it could be over in one year. However judging from when Microsoft had it it will be longer than a year otherwise why sign it? Again though we technically don’t know it could be one year, but the safe money is multiple years, wishful thinking aside.

          • burrgee

            PlayStation sold more than xbox that is the sole reason why ps is getting everything first. But next year when xbox sales prob go up the next cod could be with xbox first.

  • Matt Shaw

    PC should really get these too. We still cant buy Advanced Supply Drops, and I doubt we’ll be getting the SAC 1.5’s and royalty variants, and legendary stuff. SHG sucks ass with PC

    • Keshav Bhat

      It’s on PC now too. Post is updated.

      • ScOott

        What is the TTK like on black ops 3, it looks really fast like ghosts,Alex Hill said its like mw2 ttk but means nothing to me as I started multiplayer on black ops one .. Is it as fast as it look ?

        • TheDemonOfHate

          It does look very fast. But it keep in mind it’s on Alpha built right now…. I think. They should fix it by the time it comes out.

          • ScOott

            I hope so, although I’m sure I can remember people saying the same thing about ghosts .. Il find out off him, if he ignores me, il do what I normally do and spam him till I get a reaction lol ..

          • Guywithbrains

            It takes 2-3 seconds to kill someone with automatic weapons in MW2. Pretty much like MW3 if you have played it. However, I like faster TTK just because it allows to play using flanking. If TTK is too slow suddenly camper can just turn around and shoot me (happened a lot in Black Ops 2 when I played it).

          • ScOott

            Aghh if it’s like mw3 I have no problem with that.. Thanks! You find that out on YouTube ? If so who was it please ..

          • Guywithbrains

            I did research by myself by watching so many gameplay videos as possible. Also people say it is fairly faster compared to Black Ops 2 BUT it is in pre-alpha stage so anything can change.

    • burrgee

      Its is on pc

  • Finally

  • Hahaha…this is what XB users will be experiencing for BO3. Trust me. It feels crap. By the time you’ll actually get content it feels like it’s already been out for a year.

    • Yeah, but it’s no worry for us Xbox users. At least for me. I can still always play other games like Battlefront, Halo, Fallout, etc while I’m waiting on DLC for Black Ops 3

      • burrgee

        Good point

    • Felipe Rios

      Y u do dis 🙁 I have one more map pack of on time DLC and its over. Enjoy finally getting DLC on time (not early), I’m just going to sit and watch everyone else bask in the DLC glory. I now feel the terrible pain lol

    • ccrows

      Yeah we get your point, but many of us never wanted early DLC for either console.

      However laughing & gloating about it is just not cool, & I’ve told XB people to cool it in the past about gloating. <_<

      Be happy that you are getting the DLC early, but please don't be a D*** about it…

    • bad at cod

      It’s PlayStation’s turn to be the test dummy’s for updates and dlc now they can work with the choppy version they can deal with early bugs not me. so when it comes out on Xbox we get a patched version. And we get to experience dlc in full glory with no annoying problem killing the experience.

      • ScOott

        I’m pretty sure it don’t work like that, that was just something for the playstation kids to say as a come back to the xbox kids ..

      • TheDemonOfHate

        Yeso what ScOott said. Stop taking us PlayStation comebacks. You sound dumb saying that.

        • ScOott

          1 up for spelling my name correct!

      • burrgee

        As long as the patches come out at the same time on both consoles I couldn’t give a fuck if the dlc comes out on ps first

        • Felipe Rios

          Me too. I can wait for the DLC but if the updates are off I’ll have an issue

          • Adrian Rivera III

            Downloadable content means downloaded content patches included

          • Felipe Rios

            Well it wasn’t that way before. It’s only been that way since Advanced Warfare. All previous games got the DLC at almost the same time.

  • Patrick

    Is the base SAC3 available regularly, or can you only get it from ASDs?

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Only available via Drops, it seems. I’m on now.

  • Drasadex

    Just waiting on Supremacy for PS4.

  • Spodermen

    I claem dis aidz

  • LovekillerX

    TmarTn confirmed that rapid fire is available on snipers… I don’t know if it will be taken away but any thoughts?

    • SpetsnazAIRBORNE

      My thoughts are your weaons don’t get faster your play snifs crake and gets super speed. Just a thought. Jk jk jk

      • Graham Crackers

        You, good sir, definitely sniffed crack

  • Blast suppressor is in BO3. Stupid crutch perk. Also a perk that gives you a bonus to score streaks on spawn. And even a perk that shows red dots on minimap as arrows instead. Wtf? What is this shit?

    • RdJokr

      If you look at the minimap, you barely see any indicator when you thrust jump or slide.

      Ante Up, while different in the way it works, is basically still the same as Hardline: reducing the amount of points needed for scorestreaks.

      And I haven’t seen any perk that does what you said. Are you sure you’re not confused with Orbital VSAT?

      • Ok fine yes I was overreacting, but I just don’t even like those perks in general. But this pic.

        • RdJokr

          Oh you mean Sixth Sense? It will only display a sort-of warning cone when an enemy is in close proximity. But only in the 4 general direction. You still have to figure out if the enemy’s under or above you.

          • I guess that’s fine.

          • TheDemonOfHate

            That’s a camper’s glory perk.

      • lunator100hd .

        its very good perk, It works in similar way with destiny’s radar, i like it and i dont find it op at all

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Blast suppressor seems useless. You can barely even see the enemies boosting on the minimap. How is giving bonus streak points upon spawn different from making your streaks cost less (like hardline’s always been)? Instead of making the UAV cost 100 less, you now have 100 points when you spawn. It’s the same thing. And no, there is no perk that turns dots into arrows. You’re probably talking about 6th sense, in which case you completely misunderstood how it works. It basically shows the general area of a nearby enemy on your minimap via a red quadrent in 1/4th of your minimap. It tells you which direction the enemy is in. Catch is, it only works when you’re super close to an enemy, and can be countered by a different perk.

      • Ok like I said below I overreacted. Also yes I “completely” misunderstood how it worked. I thought is was a toned down version of a vsat, blackbird or advanced uav. Yes it’s a different way of doing hardline but it seems dumb. And ok I didn’t notice the size of enemies on the mini map.

      • Jason_88

        Blast supresser is beast in advanced warfare. I run light weight, blind eye, toughness, and blast supresser. The only one I ever change is light weight to flak jacket for hard point, or domination games.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          In Advanced Warfare, not BO3. People have been saying they can’t really tell.

  • Why is rapid-fire still a thing?

  • lunator100hd .

    I cant find my base sac 3 non akimbo on ps4 WTF? Do you have to earn even the base variant?

    • Juses

      Yup 😛

      Hahahaha are u that stupid?

  • Hi im Just a Fella

    i’m a lonely fella with no friends on ps4. i’m only here to make friends , not instigate who is going hit the pussy first or who is getting seconds. i dont care about dlc, patches, nor do i care about involving myself in adolescent arguments about which console is better. i’m only here because i prefer playing COD and this is where the majority of COD gamers seem to hang out. if anyone is interested in running a few matches on AW, dont hesitate to send a friend request to ” PunannyMagnet “. Just let me know you’re from CharlieIntel. thank you & and looking forward to gaming with you fine people.

      Ummm…K?

    Xbox One is not getting Downloadable Content first.
    Xbox will continue with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare content first, but when Call of Duty: Black Ops III comes around, no more will Xbox receive content first. This was revealed at the PlayStation E3 Conference, PlayStation will be receiving first dibs until Call of Duty: 2018. The contract will end or be renewed (most likely renewed). PlayStation 4 will be used at MLG, eSports, and more for Call of Duty. Sorry for all you Xbox players, but it must happen for Call of Duty to continue with greatness. As the PlayStation Saying goes, Greatness Awaits. Thanks you for your time.

    Already got the ASM1 royalty and a single sac which is what I call it and its rips like me after dinner
