Season 4 of Modern Warfare 3 is on the horizon and so far, it's shaping up to be a hugely exciting update for Call of Duty fans.

With a Gundam collaboration being announced and confirmation that the iconic Kar98k is making a return, the next patch is set up to be a home run for Activision.

If that wasn't enough, a new OG Killstreak may be coming to multiplayer and just like a Nuke, it's capable of killing every on the entire map.

Advanced Warfare fans will be familiar with the devastatingly strong DNA Bomb, which is reportedly set to arrive in Season 4.

As reported by DETONATED on X, the DNA Bomb from Advanced Warfare is being teased for a Season 4 release in MW3.

This can be seen in the recent CoD trailer, with multiple shots of green gas and strange chemical weaponry that's "spreading" across multiple locations.

For those who are unaware, the DNA Bomb was a Killstreak from AW that is based on the Manticore, a bio-weapon used to attack nerves that plays a core part in the campaign.

While it hasn't been confirmed by the devs just yet, there are enough clues for us to speculate that it's likely going to be available in Season 4.

If it operates in the same way as Advanced Warfare, it will require a 30-gun Killstreak, which is an extremely difficult task in multiplayer.

Once the bio weapon has been acquired and activated, a 10-second countdown begins. When this time is up, a green gas scatters across an entire map, killing anyone in its path.

As it doesn't end the match as well, it gives competitors a ridiculous amount of kills that they can then build on to beat their personal records.

Only time will tell whether the DNA Bomb is definitely on the cards, but it would be nice to have another Killstreak alongside the Nuke that feels like a true achievement.
