The H4 Blixen will soon be arriving in Vanguard & Warzone Season 3 and we’ve got the details on how to unlock the shiny new SMG. 

Season 3 is on the way and while the Battle Pass will be bringing two brand-new weapons into the fold, there’s another on the way in by itself.

This lone ranger will follow up those other two guns later in the season, but we already know what needs to be done in order to get your hands on it.

There are several new weapons arriving in both Warzone and Vanguard this season.

The H4 Blixen won’t be available until after the Season 3 Reloaded update later in the year.

When that time comes players will be able to complete an SMG-specific challenge that will unlock the gun in both games. The developers revealed it will involve getting three slide kills in a single match fifteen times.

Alternatively, if you’re impatient and would rather unlock it without grinding out the challenge, you can do so by purchasing a Store Bundle that contains a Weapon Blueprint for the H4 Blixen. It will be available at a later date.

This is the same formula followed by the Welgun and Armaguerra, both of which ended up being powerful additions to the meta.

It’s too early to say if the Blixen will have the same impact, but there’s no doubt that players will be testing it out quickly to find out.

In the Classified Arms developer update, the gun was noted as sharing “design techniques” with the Sten and PPSh-41, so picking it up for the first time might not be too difficult for veteran SMG players.
