M1 Garand Arrives in New Advanced Warfare Update

Sledgehammer have given this week a little surprise by adding some new content. Advanced Warfare has received a new update on Xbox On, a new weapon. The M1 Garand is now available in supply drops. Users were notified through the “message of the day” in-game menu and also mentions that a special announcement will happen this weekend.

Will Sledgehammer potentially release new maps? Unlikely, but not impossible. There must clearly be a strong user base still playing Advanced Warfare otherwise there would not have been a new content drop. Time will tell.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare 2 Teased?

Black Ops 3 has only just been released but Sledgehammer is now working on its next Call of Duty release.  Sledgehammer co-founder Glen Schofield mentions on his Twitter that he is so excited about its next “Call of Duty” game.

There really is not much news about the upcoming game, except that in Schofield’s Tweet, Sledgehammer has listened to gamers’ responses and had based the new game the way gamers wanted it to be. The developer plans to come out with an idealistic and heroic new game, but nobody really knows what this means.

Following the three year release cycle expect Sledgehammer’s next effort to be released in 2017.

M1911 and MP40 Weapons Now Available for Advanced Warfare

Today the new M1911 and MP40 guns were made available to PS4 and Xbox One users for Advanced Warfare. As with other weapon additions they can only be unlocked through Supply Drops and Advanced Supply Drops. These might be the final additions to Advanced Warfare as Black Ops 3 is just a few days away.

M1911

The classic 1911 pistol returns as the first new secondary to be introduced to Advanced Warfare. This pistol has stood the test of time, being used as the standard issue firearm by the U.S. Armed Forces from 1911 to 1986. It’s known for having low recoil and works great at a close to medium range. The 1911 has four variants, and the base weapon is unlocked for Create a Class once one of the variants has been unlocked via Supply Drops or Advanced Supply Drops. It’s a great secondary weapon to have on-hand when you run out of bullets in your primary.

MP40

The MP40 is a fully automatic sub-machinegun. It has a steady rate of fire which can be used in bursts to maintain accuracy at distances. It’s a great weapon to use for rushing objectives like Capture the Flag or Uplink. The MP40 features four variants, with the base weapon being unlocked once one of the variants has been unlocked via Supply Drops or Advanced Supply Drops.

Grand Master Appreciation Day is TODAY = FREE ADVANCED SUPPLY DROPS

Today (19th October) is grand master prestige day for Advanced Warfare. If you have got to the final prestige and level then you will receive 10 advanced supply drops today. Enjoy if you are lucky enough to be at grand master and let us know what you get in your advanced supply drops.

Rewarding players for their accomplishments is what Call of Duty has been about since Day One, and we couldn’t be prouder of our Grand Master Prestige community in Advanced Warfare. These players exemplify the determination and hard work that the developers at our studio live by, and we’re rolling out an extremely special program to reward them – introducing Grand Master Prestige Appreciation Day! Exactly thirty days from now on Sunday, October 18th at 9AM our team will take a snapshot of our records from all platforms (Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, and PC) and reward all Grand Master Prestiges on those platforms with 10 Advanced Supply Drops starting on Monday, October 19th!

By our calculations, thirty days is enough time to give every player (regardless of rank/prestige) the opportunity to take part in Grand Master Prestige Appreciation Day. Be mindful that this program is focused on rewarding legitimate GMP’s and we’re disqualifying anyone that has previously reverse boosted (after 1/17/2015), boosted (via collusion with other players, or by split screen), exploited, or tampered with their system, and players that receive a ban for one of these offenses during this 30-day time period. The grind is real, and so is the penalty for cheating.

Since we’re looking at this as a celebration of the AW community, we’d like to highlight your accomplishments over the course of the next month. Feel free to drop us a line, tag a screenshot of your prestige with #GMPmonth, and we’ll share your progress with our community. Thanks again for being the best community of gamers on earth, and we’ll see you on the other side. Good luck on the road to Grand Master Prestige Appreciation Day, Monday October 19th, 2015!
