The Chimera Assault Rifle has arrived in the latest Call of Duty titles. So, here’s a handy guide on how you can unlock the AR in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.

Like previous installments, this year’s Call of Duty has a ton of post-launch content planned for Season 1 Reloaded. This includes new game modes, new maps, and of course, new weapons.

With M13B already having made its way to the game, the Chimera AR is also on its way sooner than later. The Honey Badger, unlike other assault rifles, specializes in close-range combat and is more powerful and silent.

  • Extract the weapon from Building 21 in DMZ, or
  • Get 2 kills using an Assault Rifle in 15 different games.

If you own Modern Warfare 2, you can unlock the weapon much quicker as the kills get counted even if you quit the match after securing two kills.

Buy weapon bundles

There are two bundles in store that gives you the Chimera Blueprint:

  • The Dark Skies Bundle (1200 CP or $10), and
  • The Year of the Rabbit Bundle (2400 CP or $20).

Dark Skies Bundle includes the “Darkcell” blueprint for Chimera while Year of the Rabbit includes the “Darkcell” blueprint for the same. The latter is more expensive as it includes an operator skin as well.

If you opt for the DMZ route, the unlock process is similar to how you had to defeat the Alchemist to unlock the M13B. However, the DMZ route will take more time as Activision hasn’t released it yet and the devs will not announce the arrival of Building 21 in the Tarkov-inspired mode.
