Sledgehammer Games has just announced that 3 brand new weapons will be arriving next Tuesday, July 21st on Xbox One. These new weapons will be available on PlayStation 4 and PC at a later date.
The Blunderbuss is a short range shotgun that packs a punch. Delivering a great amount of damage up close in a wide spread, it has the drawback of a slow reload speed between the single shots.
Update: Sledgehammer Games has updated their original blog post and now stated that in order to get the base Blunderbuss, you have to earn one of it’s variants via Regular or Advanced Supply Drops, similar to the STG44 and SVO. The variants of this weapon will be available in Regular and Advanced Supply Drops starting July 21st on Xbox One.
STG44 and SVO
The STG44, Known for its solid accuracy and manageable fire-rate, the STG44 works great for medium range combat situations.
The SVO is a semi-automatic Sniper Rifle with great accuracy the trade-off being increased recoil.
In order to unlock the base weapon of the STG44 and the SVO, players must earn one of the weapons’ variants in either a Regular or Advanced Supply Drop. The variants will be added to the Supply Drop rotation beginning July 21st on Xbox One.
Sledgehammer Games has also said that this is just the first release of weapons for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. More weapons will be available in the future, with more information coming next month. Stay tuned.
