Season 1 of Modern Warfare 3 (MW3) is already live, and Sledgehammer Games has added two new weapons to the already extensive armory of the title. This year's Call of Duty is best described as a building block over last year's entry. It's not only a direct sequel continuing the story but also carries over a lot of mechanics, including the entire arsenal of the previous title.


All Weapons in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

In Season 1, Modern Warfare 3 has a total of 122 weapons, including 22 assault rifles, 8 battle rifles, 18 SMGs, 9 shotguns, 11 LMGs, 12 marksman rifles, 12 sniper rifles, 12 pistols and handguns, 5 launchers, 8 melee weapons, and 6 aftermarket parts.

A majority of this arsenal is from MW2 and carries over the weapon progress from the previous title. If a player doesn't own the weapon or the previous title, they can easily unlock them in MW3 with weapon challenges.
