Two new sidearms are joining the massive arsenal of weapons in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 on May 10, and one of them is the CoD universe’s version of the TEC-9. Say hello to the FTAC Siege.

“Designed to be compact and maneuverable, this SMG has a jaw-dropping fire rate and rapid swap speed,” the gun’s in-game description reads. “A trusted secondary for up-close engagements.”

While Activision describes the FTAC Siege as an SMG, it’s a sidearm that is placed into the Secondary slot in loadouts, offering a very strong option in addition to ongoing favorites like the X13 Auto.

“The FTAC Siege is a highly customizable, fully automatic machine pistol with a full suite of exciting new attachments,” Activision said. “While it cannot be dual wielded like other sidearms (yet…), its gunsmithing options include drum magazines, numerous barrels that can either extend range or grant better mobility, SMG grade stocks, and an assortment of muzzles borrowed from the deep SMG pool of attachments.”
