Warzone 2 & MW2 Respond After Season 2 Reloaded Buffed Attachment That “Doesn’t Exist”

The barrel is now very meta – you just can't use it.

Season Two Reloaded of Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 dropped on March 15, bringing the typical weapon, equipment and attachment buffs and nerfs. A long-anticipated weakening to the KV Broadside came, as did nerfs to a series of LMGs: the Sakin MG38, RPK and RAAL.

Eagle-eyed Call of Duty players also noticed a listed buff for a barrel on the Lachmann Sub called the LM Nebula. Specifically, the LM Nebula Barrel had its damage range buffed and recoil control improved; in theory making it a must-have attachment on any MP5 build.

However, as spotted by Redditor ‘KNEXIUM‘, the aforementioned barrel doesn’t actually exist in-game. Their March 16 post highlighted the buff comments from the patch notes, before pointing to a post that asked what happened to the LM Nebula.

According to the post, the LM Nebula was a barrel option that featured an integrated suppressor, representing the real-life MP5SD. That specific barrel has never surfaced in Modern Warfare 2 or Warzone 2, with only three barrel options available: the FTAC M-Sub 12″, Lachmann Pulsar or L38 Falcon 226mm.

After a day or two of confusion, Infinity Ward addressed the ‘buff’ in a now-deleted March 17 tweet, explaining that the Barrel will be coming in a future update.

“Our Season 02 Reloaded Patch Notes incorrectly featured the LM Nebula Barrel Attachment, which is actually coming to a future Season,” they said. “We’ve amended the Patch Notes to reflect this, and thank you for your patience while we addressed this error. Sorry for the confusion”.

It’s not clear why the tweet explaining the error was deleted, but it has been confirmed that a new Lachmann Sub barrel will drop in the future, perhaps with Season Three.

In the meantime, you can check out our recommended Lachmann Sub build for both Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2. Unsurprisingly, neither feature the LM Nebula barrel.
