Treyarch has revealed the newest Call of Duty multiplayer with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. While there are plenty of exciting new additions to the series coming in Black Ops Cold War, there’s also a whole new arsenal of weapons for players to try out.

As you may have guessed, this latest entry in the series is set in the Cold War and that means the game is limited to guns from around that era, as well. While that may sound like we’re getting an out-of-date arsenal, a few of the weapons may be more recognizable than players expect. In fact, series favorites like the M4, M16, and AK-47 have all made their way to Black Ops Cold War.

Ahead of Treyarch’s multiplayer reveal on Sept. 9, Polygon got some time to try out the multiplayer during a short demo. During that time, we checked out the arsenal and found every gun that was available during the demo. The complete list of weapons found in that demo is below.

We’ll continue to update this post as we get closer to launch and more weapons are revealed.
