Sledgehammer Games let players experience some of Season 1 of Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone Pacific’s content in a new update released on Monday, but that update didn’t contain the meat and potatoes of what it has to offer. As a part of the bigger slate of content, Vanguard is introducing new two weapons: the Cooper Carbine and Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle.
Both of these weapons are unlocked the same way in both Vanguard and Warzone Pacific. The Cooper Carbine is a standard assault rifle while the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle is an different kind of sniper rifle. The season is also introducing two melee weapons in the form of the Sawtooth and Katana. Later in the season, the Welgun submachine gun will also be added to the mix.
For now, here’s how players can unlock the two newest primary weapons in Vanguard.
How to unlock the Cooper Carbine in Vanguard
The first weapon that players will be able to unlock is the Cooper Carbine. The official description for the Cooper Carbine is “an American hybrid rifle with SMG-like properties the Cooper Carbine is a short-range Assault Rifle that’s easy to control with a fast fire rate.” It seems players will be able to treat this weapon like an SMG or AR. This hybrid assault rifle is featured on the Season 1 Battle Pass and is unlocked at Tier 15.
Players don’t have to worry about paying for the premium version of the pass, however. Every tier containing a piece of gameplay content, like weapons, is a free tier. Players can reach the Battle Pass tier in either Vanguard or Warzone Pacific to have it fully unlocked in both games.

The process to unlock the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle is the same as the Cooper Carbine. The only difference is that players need to reach Tier 31 to unlock this sniper rifle. As for the gun’s description, it is “a heavy semi-automatic rifle [that] offers the most damage per shot of any ballistics-based weapon, capable of one-shotting any enemy in Multiplayer with ease.”
Season 1 of Vanguard and Warzone Pacific goes live on Wednesday.
