It looks like we will soon see new Call of Duty: WWII guns and weapons and possibly new Call of Duty: WWII Supply Drops arriving as part of a new Call of Duty: WWII update in November. This could be connected with the Call of Duty Points that are destined to arrive in game on November 21st.
A leaked set of game files posted on Reddit reveal 13 new guns and three new Call of Duty: WWII blade style weapons. The leak also includes the potential for three new Supply Drop types, expanding the current three options up to six total Supply Drop variants.
While Call of Duty: WWII Supply Drops currently only offer variants of base weapons that don’t change stats or give an edge while playing it is not clear if that stipulation will carry over. Activision states that, “Supply Drops are back in Call of Duty: WWII and are your source to get your hand on unique cosmetic loot, including weapon variants, customization items, and much more, at launch.”
The At launch option is very important here as Activision could choose to put all the new Call of Duty: WWII weapons in a Supply Drop, which would push some players to buy Call of Duty Points to get new weapons faster. We don’t have confirmation that these new weapons and new Supply Drops are coming, but there si a very good chance we will see a game update this week to turn on Call of Duty Points and address other issues.
New Call of Duty: WWII GunsWe are aware of the potential to see 13 new Call of Duty: WWII guns added to the game. Shared on Reddit with images found in game.
- Gewehr 43 – Semi automatic rifle
- Type 5 – Likely rifle.
- Volkstrumgewehr – Nazi assault rifle
- Beretta 38 – Royal Italian Army SMG
- Sten – British SMG
- Breda 30 – LMG
- M1919 – Medium Machine Gun
- MG81- German Machine Gun.
- Arisaka – Bolt Action rifle (potential sniper weapon)
- Winchester 94 Lever Action – Repeating rifle.
- Enfield No. 2 – Revolver
- Walther P38 – 9mm Semi automatic pistol
- Reichsrevolver – German Revolver
Along with new base weapons, there are some variants of these weapons and there are new Calling Cards listed for many of these guns.
New Call of Duty: WWII Weapons
We also expect to see three new blade style weapons that you can get in Call of Duty: WWII. This includes two knives and an icepick.
- Combat Knife
- Trench Knife
We often see knife variants in Call of Duty games come as some of the first weapons DLC, and we see them in Supply Drops.
New Call of Duty: WWII Supply Drops
This leak also points to three potential new Call of Duty: WWII Supply Drops. We currently have common, rare and zombie Supply Drops that you earn while playing the game, but we could see three new ones added alongside in app purchases to buy Supply Drops.
- Legendary Supply Drop
- Epic Supply Drop
- Weapon Supply Drop
Legendary and Epic Supply Drops would give you a guaranteed Legendary or Epic item instead of just a guaranteed Rare item like the current top level Supply Drop. the Weapon Supply Drop would likely guarantee at least one new weapon.
How to Get New Call of Duty: WWII Guns
We don’t yet have confirmation that these new Call of Duty: WWII guns are coming, but it’s very likely that they are tied to the addition of microtransactions to the game. If that happens we could see SledgeHammer Games and Activision put the guns behind Supply Drops completely, like we saw in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
Another option would be to give the new weapons to Season Pass holders and allow other players to unlock it via a collection. Or we could see them locked behind collections without a way to get the new weapons through in game purchases or with the Call of Duty: WWII Season Pass.
Buy if Call of Duty: WWII is Still Your Go to Game
This is still the go to boots on the ground version of Call of Duty, and even with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on the way it makes sense to buy the Season Pass if you will play Call of Duty: WWII for most of 2018.
If you think you will buy all of the maps because you loved the first 6 months of Call of Duty: WWII or because you like the direction the game is going with each update, you should buy the Season Pass.
For gamers who are planning to play Call of Duty: WWII for a year, it doesn't make sense to wait and buy the DLC separately or even to skip one or two of them since that will limit the matchmaking as you get split into a smaller and smaller pool.
We're seeing a new Call of Duty, or rather a return to a more classic Call of Duty game and while things could change with updates, if you are hooked on this game, buy the Season Pass now.
You save $10 over buying the DLC individually, you get a bonus and you may need to wait a long time for a deal.
