New Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered update adds new weapons via microtransaction and crafting systems
Wednesday, February 8, 2017 - 12:06 GMT

A new update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered has introduced new weapons to Supply Drops, the microtransaction system included in the game.


The new weapons included in the update are the KAMCHATKA-12, a fully-automatic shotgun, the XM-LAR, a fully automatic assault rifle, and the .44 Magnum, the classic six-round revolver.

The new content is the first time that new weapons are locked behind the game's microtransaction model. The microtransaction system was announced last December but back then only cosmetic items were said to be delivered through the system.

The new content can be purchased with either Call of Duty points or Depot Credits, meaning that the content can be unlocked by playing the game for extended periods or by purchasing it.

While it seems like the game is slowly moving towards the pay to win genre with new weapons being part of the game's microtransaction system, the new content is also available by completing a collection of items you acquire with your Parts, the item crafting system that was also introduced last December.

How game development studio Raven Software plans to balance the new weapons with the game's original arsenal of weapons is currently unknown, but the company did state that "balance remains the #1 priority."
