Despite the ongoing success of Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, Modern Warfare is set to continue with a brand new Season 7. A leak has hinted at a new Soap operator, some new weapons to use, and a lot more.
It seemed like we said goodbye to Modern Warfare back in September with the game set to make way for the next entry in the franchise – Black Ops Cold War. However, a new leak has suggested that not only is the game not going away, but it’s set to be bolstered by a slew of fresh content.
The exciting leak has given us some insight as to what we can expect with most areas of the game being targeted for an update.
Modern Warfare Season 7 release date
If the reported leak from popular YouTube personality TheGamingRevolution turns out to be 100% factual, then we can expect Season 7 to drop on March 11.
The specific dates arise from the LTM Zombies Outbreak mode ending on that specific date, and speculation that Modern Warfare season 7 will fill this void.
New Modern Warfare Soap Operator
We mentioned a while back that a Soap Operator Bundle had been leaked for Warzone, and now it’s finally being implemented.
The legendary Call of Duty Captain is set to return to the series and he’s bringing with him different variants, three new Legendary weapon Blueprints, and the usual selection of Charms, Emblems, and Sprays.
Fans of Soap will have to part with 2,400 CoD Points, each, if they want to add this new Operator to their collection.
New multiplayer maps in Modern Warfare Season 7
In addition to new Operators, we are also set for some new maps to duke it out on as the leak indicates that the game’s array of multiplayer maps will also be expanded upon as well.
First up is Al Raab Airbase and this brand new location appears to be a large outdoor map with a big hangar near the middle of it. Also on the way is a reimagining of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare’s DLC map – Killhouse.
The other two maps are extra Gunfight playgrounds called Townhouse and Drainage. They will both be exclusive to the Gunfight mode it seems.
New weapons in Modern Warfare Season 7 & Warzone
As is now the norm with any new weapons for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, the new leaked weapons for Modern Warfare will likely make an appearance in the battle royale shooter.
The first leaked weapon is the Sykov pistol that has already been leaked and the sidearm has been available for use for some time now.
We then have the CX-9 SMG which has also been out in the public for some time. To actually use it, you’ll need to achieve two longshot SMG kills across five different games.
Our final new weapon is the Raal MG. This LMG rounds off the set and it certainly won’t be an easy one to get a hold of. To get it, you need to have leveled up another LMG, and then you need to get five kills with the Scout Optic in seven different games.
As we’ve said, all this information comes from a reliable leaker, so this information isn’t completely certain. However, if Season 7 does turn out to be the case, then Modern Warfare players have a lot of content to look forward to.

Call of Duty 2022 to be Modern Warfare sequel, alleged campaign plot revealed
After an initial NVIDIA leak, VGC has said that the next CoD title will be Modern Warfare 2 and have confirmed initial campaign details.
Call of Duty’s 2022 title, reportedly known internally as Project Cortez, is expected to be a sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare according to new reports from leakers.
Individuals on Reddit and Medium blog noticed a back-end server opening into NVIDIA’s GeForce technology site that allowed users to see hundreds of games that are tested out on their servers.
The list included many already announced and revealed games, but also included a variety of unannounced games. Many of the unannounced games were listed as just the internal developer name rather than an official name.
The full list from the NVIDIA leak is available here. NVIDIA confirmed in a follow-up statement that the leaked games were real but stated some were not official game names.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare sequel in 2022?
One of the games on the NVIDIA list is listed as “Project Cortez.” This project is listed as an Activision Blizzard published game with the developer: Infinity Ward.
Project Cortez is most likely the codename for the spiritual successor to 2019’s hugely successful Call of Duty: Modern Warfare from Infinity Ward.
Since the NVIDIA leak has happened, new details on the potential story plot for Call of Duty 2022 have been shared by VGC.
VGC sources claim that “Modern Warfare’s sequel will include a campaign involving US special forces fighting a covert war against Columbian drug cartels.”
The information on the 2022 game being a sequel to Modern Warfare 2019 is also backed up by Tom Henderson, who has shared some accurate Call of Duty leaks in the past.
This information also lines up with what Charlie INTEL has heard about the 2022 game.
The “Cortez” code name has not been used for previous Call of Duty games. Warzone’s code name was Magma, as evident by file names on the Call of Duty site, and Black Ops Cold War’s was Zeus.
Infinity Ward, to no surprise, is most likely the developer of Call of Duty 2022.
Activision has not commented on Infinity Ward’s next project and won’t until mid-2022, at the earliest. We’ll keep you updated with any further developments on the potential sequel.

Best CX-9 loadout for Modern Warfare & Warzone Season 5
Here are the attachments and Perks you can run with the highly-anticipated CX-9 SMG in Warzone and Modern Warfare to make its best loadout.
The CX-9 SMG finally arrived last season and is still a great option in Season 5, so here is how to make the best Warzone & Modern Warfare CX-9 loadout to dominate your enemies.
The CX-9 was released alongside the Sykov Pistol in Season 4, and in Season 5 Reloaded, it’s still a very viable SMG that can shred at close range.
Here are the attachments and perks to run with this SMG to make the best Warzone and Modern Warfare CX-9 loadout.
Best Warzone CX-9 loadout
Best Warzone CX-9 loadout attachments
- Barrel: CX-38S
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Stock: CX-FR
- Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
- Ammunition: 50 Round Drums
The best Warzone CX-9 loadout is great in those close-quarters engagements, but due to the random nature of Warzone, we’ve built it to be a little bit more versatile.
To start, the CX-38S barrel has two major benefits. It’s already got a Monolithic Suppressor attached, which frees up a slot, and it improves almost every aspect of the weapon. You’ll see the CX-9 has a more effective range, recoil control, and your shots will be hidden from the minimap.

Next, we’ve added the Tac Laser and CX-FR stock to the best Warzone CX-9 loadout. Your CX-9 will now be much quicker, allowing you to snap onto enemies even if they take you by surprise.
The Merc Foregrip is always a solid choice for Modern Warfare SMGs, as it improves both recoil control and hip-fire accuracy for the best Warzone CX-9 loadout. And finally, the 50 Round Drums will allow you to down and kill multiple enemies without reloading when using the best Warzone CX-9 loadout.

Best Modern Warfare CX-9 loadout attachments
- Barrel: CX-38S
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Stock: CX-FA
- Ammunition: 30 Round Mags
- Perk: Sleight of Hand
This CX-9 is built almost purely for speed but with a larger magazine and longer barrel for taking out targets at medium range.
To start, we’ve opted for the CX-38S barrel, which improves almost every aspect of the CX-9. You’ll see a huge boost in damage range, bullet velocity, and even recoil control – while having your shots suppressed. The only downside is a slower ADS speed, which we’ll correct with the rest of the attachments.
Modern Warfare’s engagements usually take place in the confines of 6v6 maps, so you want a bit more speed with your weapon. To do this, we’ve opted for the Tac Laser and CX-FA stock. With these, your ADS speed, movement, and weapon stability will see a welcome improvement.
And finally, we’ve added the 30 Round Mags and Sleight of Hand Perk. The 30 Round Mag gives a solid boost to magazine size without slowing you down too much, and Sleight of Hand vastly increases your reload speed to keep you in the fight. If you want more bullets in your mag, you can always take the 50 Round Drums instead.
Best perks to run with CX-9 class
Best Warzone CX-9 Perks
- Perk 1: E.O.D
- Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
- Perk 3: Amped
E.O.D will help you survive a barrage of explosives, keeping you in the fight at all times. Overkill will allow you to take the CX-9 alongside a long-range weapon such as the Krig 6, and then you can take Ghost from your next loadout to hide from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.
Finally, the Amped Perk allows you to switch between weapons quickly, so you’re never caught defenseless.
Best Modern Warfare CX-9 Perks
- Perk 1: E.O.D
- Perk 2: Ghost
- Perk 3: Battle Hardened
Again, E.O.D is vital to ensuring you don’t get taken out by a well-placed Frag Grenade or Semtex.
Then, the Ghost Perk will make sure you can always remain stealthy when an enemy pops a UAV.
Last but not least, Battle-Hardened significantly reduces the effect of Stuns and Flashbangs, so you’re never rendered defenseless by Tactical Grenades.
Most recent CX-9 buffs and nerfs
The best Warzone CX-9 loadout was on the receiving end of a bug and nerf in the August 5 update for the Call of Duty battle royale, which caught plenty of players by surprise, considering the weapon had only been in the game for a short time before Raven Software rolled out an update for it.

You can find all of the changes the August 5 update made to this SMG below:
- Increased mid damage range from 20 to 21
- Increased Headshot Multiplier from 1.4 to 1.45
How to unlock the CX-9 in Warzone & Modern Warfare
The CX-9 is a Modern Warfare weapon, so you won’t be able to unlock or use it in Black Ops Cold War. Luckily, it has an easily unlock requirement: Get 2 Longshot Kills while using an SMG in 5 different matches.
Because this is Modern Warfare, you don’t need to finish the match either. You can get two longshot kills with an SMG, back out, and repeat until you’ve unlocked the weapon.
