Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered may receive surprise DLC

What started out as a pre-order bonus of the larger experience, Modern Warfare Remastered has now become the star of the Call of Duty show this year.

And Activision seem well aware of that fact. So much so, they may even be working on some DLC to flesch out the experience even further.

New posts on Reddit show that some eagle-eyed players have discovered an unreleased gun in MWR’s code. A gun that wasn’t featured in the original game – the XM-LAR – and originally debuted in Modern Warfare 2.

Users have even been able to use the gun in-game by tinkering with the game’s code, and it does seem to have a killfeed icon, meaning work has gone into its implementation.

Unsurprisingly, off the back of this scoop, many Reddit users are speculating that this could be part of a larger expansion coming to the game at some point in the future.

It’s also possible that the gun was going to be added but was tabled last minute and some traces were left. Which begs the question, is there more to find?

Perhaps we need to think bigger and this is a hint that they might be remastering Modern Warfare 2?

Whatever it all means, it’s clear Modern Warfare Remastered has built up a dedicated online following and supporting that with additional content certainly wouldn’t be a bad idea.

Would you snap up DLC for Modern Warfare Remastered? Let us know..
