Data miners in the Call of Duty community have found evidence to suggest the Intervention sniper rifle may come to Modern Warfare and Warzone in the games' fifth season.

Data miner ModernWarzone found evidence of the Intervention, a sniper rifle that's seen popularity in several Call of Duty releases and is also known as the CheyTacM200, in Modern Warfare's files as early as February. Despite several new seasons kicking off since the rifle's discovery in the files, it remains possible Infinity Ward will add it to the game in Season 5.

Fans originally suspected the sniper rifle set for release in Season 4 would be the Intervention before Infinity Ward revealed it to be the Rytec AMR.

Although Infinity Ward has not made an official announcement, Modern Warfare and Warzone Season 5 is expected to begin in August based on previous Season release cycles.
