Sledgehammer Games has announced that three new weapons (Blunderbuss, STG44, and SVO) for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare are now available on Xbox One.
- Blunderbuss – 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.
- STG44 – The STG44, Known for its solid accuracy and manageable fire-rate, the STG44 works great for medium range combat situations.
- SVO – 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 Blunderbuss, STG44, and SVO, players must earn one of the weapons’ variants in either a Regular or Advanced Supply Drop. The variants are available now in the Supply Drop rotation on Xbox One. The Blunderbuss has 10 different variants available while the STG44 and SVO have 5 variants available. Players can checkout the different variants in this video here.
The Blunderbuss, STG44, and SVO will be available on PlayStation 4 and PC at a later date.
Sledgehammer Games has also stated that this is the first release of weapons for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. More weapons will be available at a later date, with full details coming sometime next month. Stay tuned.
NOTE: These new weapons will not be available on last-generation consoles (Xbox 360 and PS3) because of hardware limitations. For more info on this, please read Michael Condrey’s fireside chat here.
