If you haven’t checked out the all new Fracture gameplay mode, there’s no time like the present. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s fast-paced new mode that enlists you to pick up core files and transport them to rotating locations throughout the map is heading to the core MP playlist, and will get the Double XP treatment all weekend long. Head over to the core playlist to try out the new game mode, and hold on to those files!

No matter your Fracture play style, Treyarch’s got your covered. This week, the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Black Market** introduces three new ranged weapons to the current lineup, including:

DBSR-50 Double Barrel Sniper Rifle – Double down with the bolt action over-under sniper rifle capable of delivering two rounds before rechambering.

R70 Ajax 3D Ammo Printing LMG – Full-auto light machine gun. Manufactures its own ammunition over time; cannot be manually reloaded.

Peacekeeper MK2 Assault Rifle – The fan-favorite hybrid assault rifle from Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 returns combining assault rifle performance with SMG-like handling and speed.

But if melee weapons are more up your alley, the Enforcer shock baton as well as Nunchucks are also making their way to the Black Market this week, giving you that special edge in the event the ammo well runs dry.

Last but not least, Specialists will be getting new Epic Taunts, which ensure that your enemies will not soon forget your latest victories. Check them out in the Black Market, available now.
