Season 4 of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone are here, and they’ve come with most of the content that was teased in the official roadmap. This includes five maps in Cold War, new POIs in Warzone and several weapons added to both titles. These weapons include the C58 assault rifle, MG 82 light machine gun and Nail Gun — which is both a special weapon and submachine gun.

The Nail Gun is one of the most fascinating guns to come to either multiplayer or Warzone. True to its name, it doesn’t fire actual bullets, and it is fairly powerful. However, before players can use it, they need to unlock it in both games. Luckily, there’s a simple way to add this weapon to their arsenal.

Unlocking the Nail Gun in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone

Players can find the Nail Gun in the “Special” category of Cold War or Warzone. Although it was put here by the developers, it acts like an SMG, which is why it can be classified as both. It has great close quarters ability and deals a significant amount of damage.

When players navigate to the Special category to see the Nail Gun, they’ll also see a challenge attached to it. This is the challenge that needs to be complete in order to unlock the Nail Gun. In Cold War and Warzone, the challenge is as follows:

  • Get 5 Eliminations with Special Weapons in 15 different completed matches

For any Zombies player, there’s also a challenge within the undead mode to unlock the new Season 4 weapon. If players unlock it through Zombies, it will also be unlocked in Cold War multiplayer. The challenge for Zombies is as follows:

  • Get 25 kills with Special Weapons in 12 different completed regions

Neither challenge is too difficult but it will take a solid amount of time to play that many matches. However, if players find it too challenging, they can purchase a bundle in the Store to unlock the Nail Gun. The bundle costs 1,000 COD Points and unlocks the weapon automatically.
