The new week of the Call of Duty Modern Warfare Beta has revealed the Hammer Shotgun as a reward when the game launches.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare’s Open Beta is in full-swing. This week brought a number of fresh features to the playing field, including cross-platform in which players on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 would be able to compete with each other. That said, the Call of Duty Modern Warfare Beta also offered a little bit of a prize to anyone who takes part. Anyone who plays the Beta and makes a certain amount of progress will earn themselves the Hammer Shotgun.

The Hammer Shotgun reward was announced by Call of Duty just ahead of the second weekend of the Modern Warfare Beta on September 17, 2019. In order to earn the Hammer Shotgun when the game goes live, players just need to play in the Call of Duty Modern Warfare Open Beta and earn their way to a rank of at least Level 10 before September 23, when the Beta comes to an end. If by that time, you’re sitting on a Level 10 rank or higher, you’ll automatically unlock the Hammer Shotgun when Call of Duty Modern Warfare launches on October 25 on all platforms.

The Hammer Shotgun is a variant of Modern Warfare’s 725 Shotgun. Much like special weapons in the past in Call of Duty, the Hammer Shotgun comes equipped with some special perks, including a pre-attached sight, pistol grip, foregrip, and a silencer. That means when you’re getting up close and personal with this specialized boom stick, the boom is has a good chance of going unnoticed by other enemies in your engagements.

The last scheduled weekend of the Call of Duty Modern Warfare Open Beta is running now. It will go until 10AM PST on September 23, so there’s still time to get on board. The Beta is free to PlayStation 4 players and available to Xbox One and PC players who pre-order the game, so if you want to rock the Hammer when October 25 hits, be sure to get in there before the end of the weekend!
