Call of Duty: Warzone now lets you drop your guns

The simple but key feature doesn't seem to be in the patch notes - but it's been spotted in action

Akimbo pistol builds in Warzone

The latest batch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare patch notes have now dropped, bringing the MK9 Bruen LMG to the FPS game’s weapons roster as well as Gunsmith customs. Its standaone spin-off Call of Duty: Warzone has also now got its own batch of updates – but there’s one key feature seemingly not included in the notes – players can now drop their weapons.

As spotted by Charlie Intel, the battle royale game’s now offering the option to let go of any Warzone pistols or other guns you’ve scooped up in a match for the first time since its release earlier this year. Before this, you could only replace a weapon by grabbing another, but now, it seems, you can discard them and then ping your teammates to come find it.

YouTuber JustLawlyTTV has demonstrated this in a clip posted today that shows them dropping their M4A1 Hybrid custom assault rifle onto the ground, whipping out their dual Guard One handguns instead – without needing to pick up anything to replace it. It looks like you’re also able to scoop it back up again no problem, too. Neat.
