On June 30, Modern Warfare and Warzone received a hefty patch that nerfed the MP5 and the Grau, as well as bringing a brand new sniper rifle to the fold.

The Rytec AMR sniper brings something very unique to Modern Warfare and Warzone, with both Explosive and Thermite rounds making it even more deadly than it already is.

It’s got a decent rate of fire, perhaps not quite as powerful as the likes of the HDR, but with attachments like Explosive Rounds, that is easily rectified.

The Modern Warfare Season 4 Reloaded update brings the Rytec AMR sniper rifle, new Warzone changes and a host of balancing changes.

Obviously, as with all weapons added to the game, it’s not as simple as logging in and seeing the gun available to use – you’ve got to actually earn it.

Luckily, the challenge you have to complete to unlock the Rytec AMR is actually relatively easy, as you only have to get three quickscope kills in 15 separate matches.

Follow the steps below for the easiest way to unlock the new Rytec AMR sniper rifle.

  1. Create a new sniper or marksman rifle class to get quickscopes – we would recommend a weapon like the Kar98, with attachments to improve ADS speed and reload time.
  2. Start playing the Shoot the Ship playlist (feel free to skip lobbies so as to only get Shipment).
  3. Pick your new quickscoping class and find a good spot where you can easily pick off enemies.
  4. Back out of the lobby and find a new game.
  5. Repeat until you’ve got your three quickscope kills in 15 matches – you will be notified when the gun is unlocked.

The Rytec AMR is a completely new kind of sniper in Modern Warfare and Warzone.

There you have it: you’ll be using the Rytec AMR in no time if you follow these steps.

Even if you’re not a particularly potent sniper, attaching a reflex sight to a Kar98 makes you feel like you’re wielding a very powerful assault rifle, so this might just do the trick.

Unfortunately, this isn’t that simple if you don’t have Modern Warfare downloaded and only play Warzone, and you best start dropping in to Verdansk at a fast pace if you want to use the Rytec before anyone else.

If you’re looking to find out what else is new, be sure to check out the patch notes, because you might need to have a better look at some of your classes going forward.

From Blueprints to weapon charms and plenty more, Warzone’s new Haunting of Verdansk event has dropped 16 unique items across the map. Here’s everything you need to know to claim them all.

Verdansk has been well and truly taken over in the new Halloween-themed event. Horror film icons are available to unlock in new bundles, a spooky nighttime version of the battle royale has been deployed, and there’s even a new Zombie Royale Limited-Time Mode (LTM)

Activision has clearly gone all out with this haunting takeover, but there’s still more to it than meets the eye. On top of everything outlined in the new roadmap, Warzone also comes boasting a ton of free items in the new event. Just for exploring the map, 16 unique unlocks can be yours.

There’s a special treat waiting for you at the very end as well. From an overview of each reward to where they can all be found, we’ve got you covered with a complete rundown.

How Trick or Treat works in Warzone


From October 20 through November 3, there will be plenty of fresh content for Warzone players to sink their teeth into. Featured throughout the event is a new trick or treat system full of goodies and surprises. 

Boxes are scattered around Verdansk for you to find. Some might contain rare weapon Blueprints, though others could come with a “terrifying fright.” There’s no guarantee that you’ll get a reward from every box you open, but they’re well worth your time.

There’s no need to worry about these boxes ruining your run either. You’ll get a fright, but the ‘trick’ part of this trick or treat gimmick deals “no damage,” Activision confirmed

Upon claiming all 16 rewards on offer, a Legendary Assault Rifle Blueprint will be all yours. The boxes are spread out far and wide so be sure to use our guide below to hunt them all down.

Trick or Treat boxes can be found all across Verdansk

Just like regular Supply Boxes in Warzone, these special crates are randomized. There’s no guarantee that one will be waiting for you at every single location in a single match. It might take some time across a good number of games over the next few weeks of the event.

There are five sections of the map that have a chance to contain Trick or Treat boxes, with two to four points of interest at each. You’ll need to claim rewards at each area over time as some are exclusive to certain points of the map. In other words, you can’t drop into the same location over and over expecting to find unique rewards each time.

Once you’ve claimed the rewards from a specific part of the map, a checkmark will appear in-game. Use this as you advance from one location to another, just to make sure you’re crossing every section off the list.  A full rundown of every possible location can be found below.
