Unlocking the LAPA in Warzone and Cold War Season 6 will be a top priority for any player SMG aficionado, so here’s how you can add it to your weapon loadout.

The LAPA is the latest SMG that can be unlocked in Warzone and Cold War’s Season 6 update, which is also bringing the Hammer and Sickle to the game. The Haunting event will be kicking off CoD’s Halloween festivities, bringing with it plenty of exciting content to dive into.

However, one of the most highly anticipated releases is that of the LAPA – a lightweight prototype SMG with reliable damage and good firing control. Unlike the meta OTs 9 and MAC-10 loadouts, the LAPA has a slower rate and increased range damage. 

Whether the new SMG has what it takes to claim a spot within Warzone’s SMG meta rankings remains to be seen, but it is one weapon you’ll want to unlock.
