Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 has a long list of weapons for you to choose. There are some fresh additions, as well as the return of fan-favorite weaponry from previous Call of Duty titles. This season, we’ve seen the ISO Hemlock assault rifle and the KV Broadside shotgun join the fight. Now, a Modern Warfare 2 fan has discovered a clue which suggests the PKM could arrive in the future.
The last time players used the PKM was in Modern Warfare 2019. Here, Activision described the gun as being able to deal “high damage with a moderate fire rate.” The high damage in particular made it a deadly contender on any map and mode.
The PKM is found in a Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer map
Reddit user Viktorieluz posted the discovery on the Modern Warfare 2 subreddit. In a building at the back of the Farm 18 multiplayer map, they find what they believe to be a PKM model mounted on the wall inside of an armory. At first glance, it does look very similar to the PKM that appeared in Modern Warfare 2019, leading some players to believe that its just leftover assets from Infinity Ward’s previous entry.
However, developers has been known to tease weapons before their release. The most recent example can be seen in the Modern Warfare 2 campaign, where the crossbow could be equipped, but it didn’t become available to unlock in multiplayer until Season 02.
The PKM was a popular choice among light machine gun fans in Modern Warfare 2019 and Warzone 1. With light machine guns being front and center of the Warzone 2 meta, the PKM could take over the game if it does release. Without confirmation from Activision, it’s unknown if there are plans to release the PKM in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 in a future season. All we know for certain is that the Tempus Torrent marksman rifle will be the newest addition with the roll out of Season 02 Reloaded.
There is a PKM model in the game (farm 18) but the weapon is not in the game from ModernWarfareII
