Two Free Functional Weapons — Marco 5 and UGM-8
Expand your Loadout options with two new Battle Pass weapons. Unlock the Marco 5 SMG at Tier 15 and the UGM-8 LMG at Tier 31.
Marco 5: SMG (Tier 15 of Battle Pass System)
“A high mobility submachine gun, accurate from the hip with excellent close-range stopping power.”
Mobility is king when using the Marco 5, an SMG perfectly tailored to the hip-firing slayer. As such, it is Captain Butcher’s preferred weapon, noted for its excellent capabilities in close-quarters combat.
The options really open up after gaining some weapon levels, letting you adjust for mid-range capabilities with a barrel that adds a burst fire toggle or lean into the weapon’s natural configuration as a hip blaster. Most notable for the latter category is the Marco 5’s Akimbo Proficiency, allowing you to wield two of these bad boys in exchange for losing the ability to aim down sight. You won’t miss it.
For those who prefer running straight into danger and enjoy circling their foes, the Marco 5 will take you far.
UGM-8 (Tier 31 of Battle Pass System)
“High fire rate, mobile LMG that excels at creating suppressing fire and pushing enemy positions.”
The UGM-8 combines mobility and power in an LMG that’s ideal for suppressing enemy Operators whether you’re attacking a fortified position or defending an important objective.
Using Gunsmith, you can equip smaller calibre rounds to further boost the UGM-8’s high fire rate or opt instead to favour damage over speed via larger calibre rounds. Various barrels offer options such as improved control and stability or improved mobility. Your overall decisions will determine whether the UGM-8 remains a fast-paced LMG or takes on a more traditional heavy yet powerful build.
New Weapon Blueprints and Operator Skins
You’ll need the best equipment to win this fight. The Mercenaries of Fortune Battle Pass features plentiful Weapon Blueprints for every style of play. Here are some of our favourites:
Epic “Cybernetic Rifle” SMG Blueprint (Tier 5): This all-metal tactical Blueprint gives you early access to the new SMG with an attachment set geared toward mid-range play.
Legendary “Beach Coral” LMG Blueprint (Tier 24): Suppress whole squads and undead mobs with this groovy Blueprint featuring a wooden foregrip and waving ren lines over white.
Rare “Emerald Coast” SMG Blueprint (Tier 42): A perfect Blueprint for the new Offensive Multiplayer map, where its qualities of stealth and power make quick work of enemy Operators vying for control of the centre.
Legendary “Starred Diplomat” Assault Rifle Blueprint (Tier 85): Make ice-cold work of your enemies using this frost-chiselled Blueprint that pairs perfectly with Daniel’s Tier 0 “Vampiric” Operator Skin.
Legendary “Imperative” LMG Blueprint (Tier 95): This gilded LMG has seen plenty of action and will be indispensable in the fight for gold. An invaluable tool for defending your position in Warzone.
The Battle Pass also features a new Operator Skin every 10 Tiers, including “Town Runner” Beatrice at Tier 30 and “Wastelander” Roland at Tier 70.
Tier 100 — Get Rich, Be Seen with Legendary Operator Skin, Weapon Blueprint
In addition to earning the “Big Cheese” profile title, the seasonal Emblem, and the “Immortal Lord” Charm at Tier 100, you’ll also receive these two Legendary rewards:
Legendary “Gold Horror” Operator Skin: Don golden armour and a gilded mask, a warlord grown immensely rich in the battle for gold.
Legendary “Biochromatic” Assault Rifle Blueprint: Top off your Battle Pass completion with this multi-coloured Blueprint fit for dominating in close- to medium-range engagements using larger calibre rounds for more power, weight, and kick.
The Mercenaries of Fortune Battle Pass and Bundles are filled with items fit for a king. Get equipped with the best of them and get rich or die trying in Mercenaries of Fortune.
Bundle Highlights: New Pro Pack During Season Launch Window
Mercenaries of Fortune are ready to stock up the Store with the latest Weapon Blueprints, Operator Skins and more. From offerings at launch to a few special bundles coming online later this season, here’s what Operators can expect:
Tracer Pack: Violet Stealth Pro Pack
Become the living embodiment of fear with this new Pro Pack to be launched at the beginning of the season.
In addition to the menacing Legendary “Night Terror” Operator Skin for Florence, you’ll also get the Legendary “Violet Violence” and “Dark Ambient” Weapon Blueprints pre-configured for aggressive all-range play, an Epic Watch, Rare Reticle, and more, including a hefty 2,400 COD Points, enough to pick up a second Store Bundle or Battle Pass.
Wild Alebrije / Shattered Dreams Bundles to Complement the Battle Pass
This season, the Store will launch with two bundles containing Legendary Blueprints for new weapons available in the Battle Pass. At 1,200 COD Points each, both these bundles are great ways to kick-start your journey in using the Marco 5 and UGM-8, especially as they also contain a free Tier Skip for quicker Battle Pass progression.
First, is the Wild Alebrije Bundle, inspired by folk art from Oaxaca, a Mexican state. The Weapon Blueprint, “Artesania Moderna” is a legendary version of the new SMG that is as deadly as it is mesmerizing. Feel free to slap on the equally vibrant “Flor de Escudo” Legendary Weapon Sticker on it and the adorable “Axolotl” Epic Weapon Charm, as well as update your profile with a new Calling Card, Emblem, and Spray, as well as one Tier Skip.
This bundle’s counterpart for the UGM-8 is the Shattered Dreams Bundle. Based on stained mosaic glass art, the “Tilework” Legendary LMG Weapon Blueprint is a masterpiece when it comes to its effectiveness in mid-range combat.
Put a pair of stained glass dog tags on your weapon with the bundle’s included “Carved Art” Legendary Weapon Charm and put the “Mosiac” Reticle on your favourite optic – these are just two of the six additional items that come with the “Tilework” Weapon Blueprint and a Tier Skip.
Until then, prepare for Mercenaries of Fortune and all the new maps, features, and modes coming with it tomorrow, June 23.
