With only a few weeks left before the Call of Duty: WW2 launch is finally here, new details and information has begun to roll in at a faster clip. In addition to new maps like the London Docks and the return of Carentan, Xbox One players got a good look at the game’s file size now that the digital edition is available for pre-load. But a new leak has revealed how Sledgehammer Games is tackling weapon customization, using weapon grips based on World War II era styles.
Over on Reddit, a user uncovered Call of Duty: WW2 game files depicting weapon customization options known as Sweethearts. The images show World War II era imagery from weapon grip decorations to propaganda poster art, flag designs, and more. The full selection of weapon customization can be seen on the user’s imgur page.
Weapon camos have been a big point of emphasis for Sledgehammer Games, with the developer claiming that the game will only feature authentic customization options in order to keep the experience feeling grounded and believable. These Sweetheart grips were typically found on soldier’s weapons during World War II, and featured likenesses of loved ones or pin-up models. For Call of Duty: WW2, it’s safe to assume there will be tons of grips to choose from, and they will serve as a way for players to make their weapon stand out from the next.
As with most big releases this time of year, leaks have started to become a big issue for the upcoming shooter. Already, fans have discovered new details about the game including the full number of maps that will be available at launch, Zombie microtransactions, and a new multiplayer game mode called Gridiron. While many developers steer clear of leaks, co-founder Michael Condrey teased fans by saying some of the previously leaked details are accurate, but stopped short of confirming which ones were true.
Call of Duty: WW2 releases on November 3, 2017 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
