A video file containing a promotional trailer for the Ruger Mini-14 sniper were discovered in the files of Black Ops 4’s February 21st PC update.
The video file is internally named
core_frontend_sniper_mini14, confirming that this is in-fact the Ruger Mini-14 and not a variant of the SDM as some believe.
Unlike the leaked assets for the KAP-45 pistol, promotional images of the weapon cannot be found at the time of writing.
In real life, the Ruger Mini-14 is a lightweight semi-automatic rifle manufactured by Sturm, Ruger & Co. used by military personnel, law enforcement personnel, and civilians. A .223 caliber firearm.
Treyarch has yet to confirm the Mini-14’s addition to Black Ops 4. However, given the presence of these files its likely to be added in the near future. Stay tuned.
