The Nikita AVT Assault Rifle has arrived in the Warzone & Vanguard Season 3 update and we’ve got the keys you need to unlock it right away. 

The major Warzone & Vanguard Season 3 update, otherwise known as Classified Arms, is just around the corner and players are gearing up for all the new content that’s scheduled to arrive in-game.

Kicking off on April 27, the patch will introduce new POIs, operators, and of course an array of unique weapons to customize and experiment with.

While players are excited about the new M1916 Marksman Rifle, it’s the Nikita AVT Assault Rifle that’s getting most of the attention from the community.

However, with plenty of competition in the AR slot from the likes of the Cooper Carbine and STG44, how will the Nikita AVT match up?

The Nikita AVT Assault Rifle will arrive in-game on April 27.

In order to unlock the Nikita AVT in both Warzone and Vanguard, you’ll need to reach Tier 31 of the Battle Pass.

This is the same process as unlocking the M1916 or any of the previous BP weapons in Vanguard.

It’s worth noting that as the new AR is free, you won’t need to buy the premium Battle Pass to unlock it, you’ll just need to earn enough XP to hit the required level.

If you’d prefer to unlock the Nikita AVT instantly, you can always purchase one of its blueprints from the store on April 27, but this will cost you CP.

The Nikita AVT has an extremely fast fire rate.

Unlike a lot of the ARs in Warzone and Vanguard, the Nikita AVT is more of a mid-range option that performs similar to an SMG.

With an incredibly high rate of fire, it may take users a while to get used to the gun’s heavy recoil, but those who fully master its kickback will certainly be rewarded.

For now, it’s just a case of waiting until April 27 and seeing how the Nikita performs on both Rebirth Island and Caldera.
