Black Ops 3 Awakening DLC weapon with MP40 mystery

By Alan Ng - Dec 22, 2015

We have just had the official trailer released for Black Ops 3 Awakening, the first DLC pack which will come in February. However, many gamers are wondering if there will be a Black Ops 3 Awakening DLC weapon, since we didn’t see anything mentioned in the trailer.

Given that Advanced Warfare DLC came with bonus weapons with each Map Pack and indeed Black Ops 2 from Treyarch in the past, many are expecting a Black Ops 3 DLC weapon with Awakening.

So far though, nothing has been made official and if there is one coming Treyarch are certainly keeping it quiet at the moment.

Having said that, there has been intense speculation via social media that the weapon with Awakening is going to be the MP40.


This is a very popular sub machine made famous in previous games including Treyarch’s World at War and many fans would love to see it make a return.

It could tie in very nicely to Der Eisendrache, a new WW2 style zombies map which will be set in an Austrian Castle. What would be amazing in our opinion, would be if Treyarch made the weapon available in multiplayer – but only if you completed the easter egg in Der Eisendrache first.

We doubt that would happen, but it would certainly be a nice twist to the normal format. As we wait for official confirmation, let us know if you want to see the MP40 confirmed as the DLC weapon for BO3 Awakening.

If not the MP40, what other suggestions would you have?
