Today, Call of Duty: Black Ops III received two brand new weapons in the game’s Black Market store. Specifically, these weapons are the M1911 pistol and the AK-74u Submachine Gun.

In addition to the new guns, Treyarch is also allowing players to earn the Into the Void camo via Supply Drops.

Finally, Treyarch released a brand new update for the PC version of the game. The patch is similar to the one released on consoles last week, with some new additions for the game’s Zombie mode, and should be available to download as soon as the game is booted up.
