Weapon for Black Ops 3 Awakening DLC 1 anxiety

We are just weeks away from the release of Awakening DLC for Black Ops 3, the first add-on content which will be free to Season Pass owners.

One main talking point that has yet to be resolved though, is whether there will be a free weapon for Black Ops 3 Awakening DLC 1 – since it has now become tradition with each DLC release.

So far, Treyarch has not said anything about it though despite strong rumors suggesting that the MP40 may be making a return.

Given that we still have just over three weeks to go until Awakening is available on February 2 on PS4, we could still get the announcement from Treyarch soon.


The developer could merely be building up the suspense element as they know too well that many players are curious about whether a weapon is coming.

Do you want it to be the MP40 or do you have another model in mind? Put it this way, do you expect a weapon and will be disappointed if one isn’t included?

It is worth pointing out that Awakening DLC is available as a separate purchase and the only bonus confirmed so far is a free DLC theme.

If a weapon was included on top, surely Activision would want to advertise it as soon as possible to attract more sales – So does this imply that one won’t be coming now?

Either way we’ll let you know as soon as an announcement is made.
