The Nail Gun is one of the latest weapons added to Black Ops Cold War and Warzone in Season 4. Here’s how you can get your hands on the powerful new Special Weapon.

Season 4 brought with it a huge number of changes to both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone in one of the biggest content drops yet.

On the multiplayer side of things, there are three new 6v6 maps arriving, with the return of both Hijacked and Rush as well as brand new map Collateral. There are also new modes and operators now live in-game.

In Warzone, on the other hand, there’s a brand new Satellite POI that has destroyed Farmland, as well as a new Payload mode and mysterious Red Doors that allow players to fast-travel across Verdansk. For now, here’s how you can unlock the powerful new Nail Gun weapon to get off on the right foot.

Unlocking the Nail Gun is rather simple in Season 4. You’ll have two pathways to claim this new Special Weapon, either through regular multiplayer or directly in Zombies. Here’s a quick overview of both distinct challenges.

In standard multiplayer, your job is to grind with Special Weapons. This can quickly be achieved in fast-paced multiplayer modes, or in casual games of Plunder for the battle royale alternative.

In total, you need to get 5 Eliminations with Special Weapons in 15 different completed matches.

Unlocking the Nail Gun in Zombies

As a secondary option, the Nail Gun can also be unlocked directly through the Zombies experience. Specifically, playing Outbreak with Special Weapons is the key to accessing this new tool of destruction.

You’ll need to get 25 Kills with Special Weapons in 12 different completed regions.
