A new shotgun has been snuck in under the radar by Infinity Ward. The JAK-12 is now available in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare & Warzone, despite no indication of its arrival from the latest patch notes, but players will need to put the work in to claim their own.
The JAK-12 requires three shotgun kills (any shotgun will do) from the hip across seven individual matches. Of course, if like me, you’re not very good in a match but want to get your hands on the gun, there is a simpler option. For 1,100 COD Points in the store, the weapon can be instantly unlocked via a Legendary Blueprint from the Lacedaemon Bundle.
As the visual evidence reveals, the JAK-12 packs a hell of a punch, and in close quarters combat it’s sure to rack up quite a kill count if used effectively.
The latest update from Infinity Ward includes playlist updates for both Modern Warfare and Warzone, weapon fixes, and more general fixes such as lighting issues, War Track volume errors, and bounty contracts.
Last week’s update on October 8 addressed two broken weapons, the AS-VAL and the SP-R 208 sniper. The AS-VAL, with its SPP 10-round magazine attachment, could penetrate walls and take out targets effortlessly. As for the SP-R 208, the sniper’s notorious power problem was causing serious problems within matches.
The update addressed the weapons, fixing the AS-VAL’s wall-breaking capabilities, and while increasing the 208’s flinch, reduced the gun’s ADS speed.
In other Call of Duty news, Treyarch announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War would be the first in the series to feature the FOV slider across all platforms. Treyarch described the function as a new way to optimize the game for a “globally connected, cross-play experience”, adding that “the team is dedicated to providing the best performance possible for this feature across all platforms at launch.”
