The Grav is the latest Assault Rifle to be released in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War as part of the franchise’s huge Season 6 update. Here’s how to get your hands on the new weapon — teased to be “similar to the Galili” — and how it works.

The most anticipated weapon coming in this week’s Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 6 update is the Grav.

This new Call of Duty assault rifle has been teased to be “similar” to Black Ops’ famous Galil, and is sure to shake up the primary weapon meta in both Verdansk and across Cold War’s multiplayer playlists (despite low-recoil ARs dominating the meta) now that it has finally arrived.

Grav added in Season 6 update

Call of Duty gets its latest assault rifle, and it’s already looking like a doozy. The Grav is a primary gun designed to dominate every gunfight, whether it be up close and personal, or across long distances in Verdansk. The biggest plus for the new Season 6 weapon is its bullet velocity, which is “best in class.”

The gun’s description reads: “Full-auto assault rifle. Fast-firing rifle with improved range. Fastest bullet velocity with modest damage and moderate recoil.”

How to unlock Grav in Warzone & Cold War

If you want to add the level-action .410 Ironhide shotgun to your Call of Duty collection, then you’ll definitely want to know how to unlock it.

Luckily, the Grav is free for all players and therefore super simple to unlock. To get this assault rifle, players just need to level up their Season 6 Battle Pass to Tier 31. If that seems like too much of a hassle, players can speed up the process by purchasing the tier skip Battle Pass and get a head start.

For those casual Call of Duty players that don’t want to spend time leveling up the Battle Pass, the Grav blueprint will also be included in bundles and challenges.
