The APC9 and the AN-94 appeared in the latest Modern Warfare and Warzone Season 5 trailer when it was revealed Thursday, suggesting the two guns will arrive in the new season.

The APC9 submachine gun appeared in Modern Warfare data mining as early as November, suggesting the weapon was in development for months. Modern Warfare data miner BKTOOR posted gameplay with the APC9 the day before the trailer's release, and its pre-existence in the game files supports the notion that Infinity Ward would add it in Season 5.

Data mining has also previously uncovered the AN-94, an assault rifle that's been a Call of Duty staple — the gun appeared in all four Black Ops games.

Infinity Ward has yet to confirm plans to release any new guns, let alone these two in particular, but new weapons have accompanied each Modern Warfare and Warzone season launch. Additionally, both appear in the YouTube thumbnail for the Season 5 trailer, suggesting an intentional focus placed upon them.

To date, only three new Operators have been confirmed for the new season, which launches Aug. 5.
