Several details surrounding Season 2 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019) have been leaked by the official Modern Warfare website (oops). One of the most exciting tidbits of information relates to a couple of new weapons that are set to be added to the game. If you’re looking to get ahead of the competition by learning about the new Modern Warfare Grau 5.56 and Striker 45 guns, then you’re in the right place.

The first of the new base weapons being added to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare via Season 2 is the Grau 5.56. This Assault Rifle features the following in-game description:

“Lightweight, manouverable and full of potential.”

By the sound of it, the Grau 5.56 is a compact weapon and an all-rounder, which could make it a strong pick for your primary weapon slot.

As pointed out in this Reddit post, the Grau 5.56 is actually a compact variant of the SWAT-556 Assault Rifle featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops II. A high rate of fire and only moderate recoil made the SWAT-556 a popular gun, so its reintroduction (albeit in altered form) should make a lot of long-term CoD fans very happy.

Modern Warfare’s Striker 45 is described in-game as follows:

“Hard-hitting and long range SMG.”

By actively countering two of the main drawbacks that many sub-machine guns suffer from — those being relatively low stopping power and a short effective range — the Striker 45 seems like it has the potential to be a new go-to SMG for many.

Lots of players have noticed that the Striker 45 essentially appears to be a returning UMP45 from Modern Warfare 2 in all but name. Considering that firearm’s massive popularity, the Striker is another gun that fans are sure to appreciate being added to Modern Warfare 2019 in Season 2.
