A recent Activision blog post teased some of the crazy designs Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will sport on its new Signature Weapons.
As the post describes, Black Ops 4‘s Signature Weapons are a first for the Call of Duty series. These weapon variants allow players to expand on the customization of their favorite weapons by completing challenges unique to those weapons, which reaps equally unique rewards. The rewards won’t alter the stats of the gun in any way, but they will unlock crazy new cosmetic options for the Signature Weapon as a way for players to show off their progress.
The peak of these Signature Weapon rewards are the Mastercraft versions. Activision teased a Mastercraft skin for the MX-9 submachine gun in the blog post, which can be unlocked day one by picking up the Digital Deluxe, Digital Deluxe Enhanced, Pro Edition, or Mystery Box Edition of Black Ops 4.
Additionally, preordering Black Ops 4 through GameStop will net gamers a Signature Weapon skin for the Strife pistol, which was also shown off in the blog post.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is slated to launch October 12th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The beta for the game’s Blackout battle royale mode is nearly upon us, coming to PlayStation 4 first on September 10th, and other platforms September 14th.
