The new season 4 of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone has been live since yesterday, May 29th. One of the main collaborations of the current season will be Gundam, the popular Japanese anime that is coming to the game with several skins and other weapons and items. There are new leaks about this content, and some fans are not that happy with the result of this new collaboration.


Charlie Intel, a popular site that covers this franchise’s news, has shared a short video showing fans how the anime’s beam saber resembles Star Wars, while also highlighting how the game is evolving into a more Fortnite-like experience.

Some fans are dissatisfied with the direction the game is taking, especially with the introduction of collaborations and the limited-time addition of new weapons. This item does not introduce any changes to the mechanics; the changes are solely visual.

On X, the reactions of some users are comparing the title with the Epic Games IP. Fans are expecting something different from the FPS franchise, but Activision seems to be okay with the current amount of collaborations and content. Not all users are against this; many players enjoy the different skins, crossovers, and other things that the title has added in the seasons and Battle Pass.


Season 4 of Call of Duty will add a ton of content, like new maps, new weapons, new modes, and a long list of additions that Activision has prepared. It will also introduce three new character operators for the game; one of them is a very popular main character in the story. Three skins from Gundam will be part of the season; they will be available at some point in the store with the beam saber.

Activision is looking forward to showing the new Black Ops 6 in the upcoming event that will begin after the Xbox Summer Showcase. This first trailer will reveal part of the story and a possible release date. Microsoft has already confirmed that the game will be released on Game Pass. It will be the first game in the franchise to do this, and it will be a unique change for the service.
