"Full-auto energy rifle. Advanced recoil compensator provides focus hip fire. Aiming down sights increases fire rate. Integrated optics provide enhanced detection capabilities."
— In-game description

The X-Eon (known as VR-AR46 in pre-release) is a fully-automatic assault rifle featured in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare that was added in the March 28th, 2017 update. It appears to be a highly futuristic weapon, offering abilities such as great hip spread, increased fire rate when aiming down sights, along with a tracker like sight that comes by default.

It is available for free for Season Pass holders, otherwise it can be unlocked via a challenge or a Supply Drop however, Bots will sometimes wield this weapon

CampaignEdit

Though not obtainable in the campaign, the weapon could already be seen before the March 28th update. A soldier is seen training with one in a virtual shooting range by the News Room and the door that leads to the bridge aboard the Retribution. It also can be seen in other various locations, such as Griff's armory.

MultiplayerEdit

The X-Eon bears a unique pop-up optic that can highlight enemies like the Thermal Scope. However, players with Cold Blooded and Hardwired can counter the optic's abilities. However, the optic on the Warsight variant of the X-Eon counters this, allowing the player to see other players that have Cold Blooded, Hardwired and even Active Camo on.

The weapon features an advanced recoil compensator that allows the weapon to have a tighter hipfire spread, meaning players are more likely to hit an enemy if hipfiring towards them. Another unique feature is that the fire rate increases when the player aims down the sight.

A downside to the X-Eon is its low starting ammo, where it gives the player a total of 90 shots. Because of its fire rate, it can easily run out of ammo if the player doesn't have Scavenger or collect ammo from an X-Eon on the ground. Because it is an energy weapon, it cannot have Extended Mags.

Letter from the QRT-M5TREdit

On September 9th, 2017, a newsletter was released from the QR-M5TR, detailing the character's process of moving the X-Eon from the QR-M5TR collection and into the Prototype Lab.[1]

The letter reads as follows;

"Dear X-Eon Serial #48348-375111-00385222,

I can’t believe it. It finally happened. You’re really gone. Boy…you’d think this would get easier. Why was I programmed to feel attachment to the weapons I make? I watch a lot of weapons go. It’s my purpose. But -- I’m not ashamed to admit this -- you, X-Eon #48348-375111-00385222… you were always my favorite. Yes, I say that a lot but I really mean it this time. Your range, your damage, your consistent hip fire accuracy: you’re the special one. I’ll miss you but you belong out in the world. You belong with the people.

It seems like only yesterday you were just a series of 0’s and 1’s in a computer. You were my answer for when NV4 demand became overwhelming and, bless my circuits, did you deliver. At first, nobody could ever figure out what to call you. Remember? “Zeon”, “EX-Eon”, “X-E-O-N” and a dozen other variations. It didn’t matter how people pronounced your name. They knew who you were. And you became an instant favorite. Your heart, your spirit, your slightly higher damage than the NV4 – how could they not love you?

We’ve been through so much, #48348-375111-00385222. That incredibly focused hip fire spray that enticed so many people. The were so enchanted that they almost ignored your immaculate performance when you’re focused. When you put your mind to it – by aiming down your sights – your fire rate speeds up and you can knock out enemies at distance with the best of ‘em. Like any genius, you just need someplace to concentrate all your energy (rounds.) Hell, you even have a built-in sight to narrow focus. You’re not the perfect weapon. But you’re perfect to me.

Now that you’re gone, I’m sure I’ll move on. I have to. I’ll make X-Eon #48348-375111-00385223. You’ll provide fantastic range and uncanny accuracy wherever you end up. But, I’ll always remember you. That’s my curse. I have the computing power to specifically remember each and every weapon I bring into the world and the emotional capacity to miss them when they’re gone. It would be funny if it weren’t so sad. I’d dream about you but, I don’t sleep. I’m a robot. That wouldn’t make any sense.

Yours,

The Quartermaster"
— The QR-M5TR

ZombiesEdit

The X-Eon was added to the Magic Wheel in Zombies in Spaceland and Rave in the Redwoods and is present in the Magic Wheel by default in Shaolin Shuffle. Like the previous DLC weapons added to the game, it can be unlocked for customization by obtaining it from the Magic Wheel or owning the Season Pass.

When upgraded via the Pack-a-Punch Machine, it becomes the Buchananator. When Pack-a-Punched again once the Alien Fuses have been installed into the Pack-a-Punch Machine, it becomes the StuPandous.

TriviaEdit

  • The model for the X-Eon could be found in several different maps before the weapon being actually added to the game.
  • The X-Eon's double Pack-a-Punched name, the StuPandous, is a play on the word "stupendous".
  • According to letter from the QR-M5TR, the X-Eon's serial number is #48348-375111-00385222.
