Modern Warfare & Warzone Season 5: New Sierrax LMG Mid-Season Weapon?

Season 5 of Modern Warfare and Warzone has finally arrived and with it, we've been graced with three new weapons.

Initially, we were expecting to receive just the ISO SMG and AN-94 assault rifle, but players we're surprised to login and find the Dual Kodachis waiting for them as well (a weapon that was meant to be released in the mid-season update).

So what's happening in the mid-season update? Is a new weapon coming at all? Yes, a new LMG (reportedly called the Sierrax) is coming as well as potentially the R700.

In the build-up to the new season, the R700 has been mentioned and seen in the game files.

Here's the latest information about this new rifle.

@BKTOOR_ has been able to data mine the new LMG that is scheduled to arrive in the mid-season update.

The user has even uploaded footage of the LMG in action.

It's Iron Sights resemble something very close the ACR from Modern Warfare 2 and appears to display little to no recoil.

With LMGs running rampant in Warzone, could the Sierrax be the new king of Verdansk?

More footage has arrived of the new LMG that displays two types of alternate fire
