The Cronen Squall is one of the new weapons coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 in the Season 3 update.

The new weapon falls into the battle rifle category and comes alongside the FJX Imperium sniper rifle, which is a reimagining of the classic Intervention sniper rifle from the original MW2. Season 3 is set to launch later today, and fans want to know how to unlock the Cronen Squall specifically in MW2 and Warzone 2.

Activision has described the Cronen Squall as a “bullpup, semi-automatic rifle chambered in 6.8 Wrath and designed for distance shooting and exceptional damage output.” It seems like the Cronen Squall could be better-suited for Ground War in MW2 and Al Mazrah matches in Warzone 2 given its prowess at long-range gunfights. However, players could design a build that is strong at close-range as well.

The Cronen Squall, like the FJX Imperium, is a Battle Pass weapon in Season 3. Players will be able to unlock both of them for free, as they are a part of the unpaid version of the Battle Pass. In order to unlock the Cronen Squall specifically, players need to keep unlocking the different tiers of content available in the pass.

You can earn Battle Pass Tokens through playing MW2 and Warzone 2 and then use those tokens to unlock the tiers of content. Keep unlocking the tiers until you reach the Cronen Squall’s block, which will be marked with its weapon icon. All that’s left to do is use your Battle Pass Tokens to unlock the tiers in the Cronen Squall’s block and then use a last token on the weapon itself. Then, you will have access to the new battle rifle for use in multiplayer, battle royale, and DMZ.
