Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - Warzone has been busy this week with new secret locations confounding players for months finally being accessible, a new secret MP7 Blueprint, and intel hinting at a fan-favorite character making his return as a playable operator.

Players on Tuesday were finally able to access the various bunker locations scattered across the map with the “Red Access Key Cards” found in loot and from eliminated enemies. Alongside this revelation was the in-game side quest to unlock the notorious Bunker 11 and claim the secret Mud Drauber Blueprint for the MP7 Submachine Gun. Accompanying all these new goodies was the recent teaser hinting at Captain John Price - the grizzled Brit who first appeared in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare back in 2007 - being released as a playable operator in season 4.

Captain Price Returns As Playable Operator?

The cryptic message, complete with accompanying image of an individual looking conspicuously like Captain Price as we see him in this year’s Modern Warfare points to the possibility of Price making an appearance as a playable operator sometime in the near future. As of now this is only speculation, and it remains to be seen if Price will appear as an unlockable operator via season pass or as a standalone purchasable DLC item.

Fans are also speculating that the weapon shown at the 00:27 second mark of the teaser trailer might be the return of the Galil that was last seen in Black Ops 4, or possibly the AK74u from Call of Duty Mobile. YouTubers and content creators have also been hard at work uncovering the recent leaks in game code and weapon models, which also hint at four other weapon possibilities coming in season 4.

Expect details regarding the teaser trailer from Infinity Ward in the coming weeks.
