The MG 82 is the new LMG on the block and it packs a punch in both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War. Here’s how you can unlock it.

While LMGs have struggled to maintain a top position among Warzone and Cold War’s most dominant weapons, there have been times where they have proven incredibly powerful. In fact, the PKM and Bruen have shown just how devastating they can be.
