Call of Duty Brings Back the Cherished Akimbo Model 1887

As an aftermarket add-on, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will soon bring back the cherished Akimbo Model 1887, a weapon from the MW2. The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Season 3 update is expected to contain this change when it launches on Wednesday, April 3.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare fans have had an exciting few weeks thanks to Sledgehammer’s teases of several fascinating additions for the upcoming season. Four new 6v6 multiplayer maps have been released in the update: 6 Star, Emergency, Growhouse, and Tanked. The addition of the well-liked Capture the Flag game is another noteworthy development. Originally included in Call of Duty: United Offensive, this mode is a famous feature that debuted in 2004. It seems, though, that Capture the Flag isn’t the only element coming back.

Activision reveals that the next Season 3 update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will include eight aftermarket components in all. Many admirers are especially interested in the Wardens among them. This attachment, which can be obtained by completing a weekly challenge, may be used with the Lockwood Mk2 Marksman Rifle to convert it into a dual-wield Model 1887 lever-action shotgun.

Fans of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 are eagerly awaiting this addition for Season 3, since in the first Modern Warfare games, the Model 1887 was one of the most widely used weapons. The Akimbo guns were actually so strong that they could be used by gamers as snipers. This domination, though, was short-lived, as the following patches drastically lowered the guns’ range in an effort to equalize gameplay. The weapon’s range was further reduced by the Akimbo attachment, which eliminated the Model 1887 from the meta.

Old-school Call of Duty fans will always have a soft spot in their hearts for the Model 1887, even with the Nerfs. Its ongoing appeal is highlighted by the fact that many Reddit users are already announcing that they plan to utilize this weapon in the 2009 game entirely. Nonetheless, some fans are skeptical that the next version would receive major nerfs, which could reduce the fun. There’s also the question of whether the aftermarket component will retain the original gun’s hip-fire accuracy, as the Model 1887 was a remarkable hip-fire competitor, even surpassing handguns such as the Desert Eagle. Even with the continued worries about cheating in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, the community is clearly excited about this highlight of the Season 3 Update.
