TEC-9 Pistol Warzone

For many Counter-Strike players, the TEC-9 is a familiar name within the weapon arsenal and is synonymous for its semi-automatic firing mechanism and lethal damage output in close-range encounters. While it may be a staple of Counter-Strike, the powerful pistol has never made an appearance in a Call of Duty title.

A data miner that goes by the name of @Nytro___ uploaded the first glimpse of the TEC-9 in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War on August 2nd.

What's particularly interesting about this image is that the Operator in the image is holding two TEC-9s, heavily suggesting that an Akimbo attachment will be available for the pistol, meaning that it could heavily impact the close-quarters metagame.
