New Advanced Warfare update for missing AE4 Widowmaker

We are pleased to finally bring you an update on the missing AE4 Widowmaker gun in COD Advanced Warfare. Last week, we told you that the special weapon had launched for Season Pass owners on Xbox. However, now Sledgehammer Games has officially acknowledged that there is a problem with certain versions not getting the weapon as intended.

To recap, both the AE4 Widowmaker and the AE4 Directed energy assault rifle were due to unlock on December 11. However, some players had told us that they couldn’t find the AE4 Widowmaker in Advanced Warfare specifically.

This was strange to us as we have it and so did many other players, without any problems. Now we know that the issues were specific to the Advanced Warfare Digital Pro Edition though, as Sledgehammer has just confirmed it.


Hours ago, the developer revealed the Tweet in which you see above, replying to one user about the problem and redirecting them to a support page.

From the information enclosed on the support page, we can tell you that Sledgehammer will be issuing a new Advanced Warfare update on Xbox One and Xbox 360. Furthermore, this update should be going live before the end of the week according to Activision – so we have a feeling that this new Advanced Warfare update could land on Thursday December 18.

While it is obviously frustrating for those that don’t have the Widowmaker after paying the premium for the Season Pass, it’s refreshing to see Sledgehammer acting quickly on this.

Give us your status at the moment as we wait for the update to drop. Do you have the AE4 and the AE4 Widowmaker in Advanced Warfare right now?
