The Artist at Infinity Ward, Sean Byers, has tweeted out a hi-res image of the new sniper version of the Maverick weapon that is part of the Onslaught DLC for Call of Duty: Ghosts. In Onslaught there are two weapons, the Maverick Assault Rifle and the Maverick Sniper Rifle. The image is of the sniper.

    that’s some nice shit right there

  • fires

    I came… God the next weapons need to be of equal or higher quality…

    • Dustyn

      lmfao man

    • Yeezus

      What the fuck?

  • Dustyn

    doesn’t it look like the AR has a built in suppressor?

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Looks more like the screw needed to convert it into a sniper.

  • fires

    This is looking nice, but the barrel on the sniper looks more like a suppressor, will it really be AR/Sniper, or will it be a sniper with low stopping power like that of a marksman?(If its a one-shotter, then the suppressor thing might be a re chambered barrel.)

    • Mesmeratize

      It is a second version of the VKS if you can’t tell by the supressor meaning it is just always silenced like the VKS

      • Grigori

        Not a surpressor -,-‘

  • James K

    Ugh, I hate the Maverick’s iron sight. Looks a bit obstructed.

    Besides that, I like the design of the weapon.

    • john014

      how is the iron sight obstructed? are we looking at the same gun here?

      • James K

        I feel like the front sight doesn’t work with the other sight.

    • BlueBeard

      From the first person perspective in the Codnapped video, I think it looks like one of the best iron sights in the game. I was already excited for the sniper because of the scope, but after that clip I am also excited for the AR version.

  • n00b

    The Sniper looks like its from another game…

    • Zarky

      Borderlands 2 springs to mind.

      • xSupaScopa

        or Destiny

        • ORB1T4L

          Or Fallout.

  • pep

    That thing would look cool as fuck with a drum mag.

    • Grigori

      Almost every gun looks cool as fuck with a drum mag

      • LarperPro

        But wooden stock + drum mag on an assault rifle would be an instaboner.

        • Grigori

          You sir, you are right 😉

          • Anon-Kun

            *tips trilby*

  • Maccabeus Jamal Whitaker

    I will admit that it looks good, but it doesn’t fit CoD, Borderlands maybe. I just hate it when games try to realistic, then cram in fake guns.

  • CharlieIntel

    The Sniper looks like a gun from Borderlands, in my opinion.

    • Ray’

      was gonna say the exact same thing

    • Chris Mason

      Which isn’t a bad thing. Maliwan or Jakobs perhaps.

  • thebulky1cometh

    I love the gun as an AR, but the sniper rifle version is way too “busy”- between the oversized barrel, the really strange scope, and the electrical wires hanging off.

  • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

    Weirdest looking gun I’ve ever seen.

    • ORB1T4L

      Wash your eyes with bleach then come back…

  • Condemnt

    Lol snap a flash suppressor and grip on this bad boy and youll have yourself a laser rifle

    • Yeezus

      Who the hell uses a flash suppressor?

  • Brandon

    Honestly I don’t think ghosts needs another sniper rifle, but the AR is a welcomed addtion. Hopefully maybe this can be a middle ground weapon between the AK12 and honey badger. Maybe 40 damage up close and drop to 30 at a distance with a middle rate of fire. Slower than the badger, but higher than the AK. Im still looking for a type 25, or M27 variant from black ops 2 in ghosts. Oh and please oh please IW don’t let this gun be able to switch on the fly from Sniper to AR! I say this because at this point something like that would not surprise me….

  • KiLLaMaNiLLa

    Gonna look pretty sick the the body count camo.

  • KiLLaMaNiLLa

    They need to add better LMG’s and SMG’s

    • Chris Mason

      Shotguns. That are good beyond 5 ft. in front of you. Without slugs. That is all.

      Seriously. I’ve loved shotguns in every IW game until this one. Maybe its the maps, maybe its every other gun killing like shotguns are supposed to, maybe I just haven’t used then enough. I don’t know. I just know I miss my Spas, Striker, Model 1887, KSG, USAS and (yes, even this one is better than Ghosts’ offerings) the AA-12.

      • Ste Ruttledge

        shotguns are really nooby tbh, you don’t have to control recoil and you can just hipfire with them without really aiming. they had to nerf the range or smgs would become obsolete

        • Chris Mason

          Nooby? Oh please, don’t be -that- guy. There is nothing nooby about shotguns. Most have no recoil because they either have to cycle their action (Spas, KSG, Model) which is another way of saying poor RPM, or because their actual RPM (USAS, Aa-12) may be high but its nowhere near almost any other gun (666 rpm was the slowest firing automatic weapon in MW3 if I recall).

          And you hip fire shotguns because a) it works in tandem with Steady Aim nicely and b) there is no real benefit pre-BO2 KSG and Ghosts shotguns to ADS firing.

          So to say they had to keep SMGs viable, you’re ignoring the fact that SMGs have a more predictable hip fire spread, more ammo, faster rates of fire and are still effective when silenced. Beyond that, in my opinion, I supplant that if shotguns are nooby, than SMGs are just noob cannons used to bullet hose people by rushers who just hold down RT and want to dominate without much effort.

  • Laxus

    I don’t know why but it reminds me of a mp5?

  • Michelangelo

    Is that a silencer on the maverick

    • ORB1T4L

      Not even a chance. I think it’s a barrel with a built-in flash suppressor and a camera for the huge scope, it’s obviously a digital scope.

      • James Cole

        I cant see a lense on the front either. I sure as hell hope 9 bangs and ground jammers dont leave you with no vision.

  • Batman

    Wooden stocks are the best super sexy. But I really prefer an ak 47 and the intervention back instead of this

  • philip bell

    the sniper looks like it has an integrated silencer, all the business at the front end has to be a silencer???? the scope in game seemed a bit tracker sight esc
    the AR looks rugged, i like it

  • LG BMoe

    it looks like a borderlands weapon
