How to unlock the Seraph Specialist in Blackout battle royale

The way to unlock the Seraph Specialist in Call of Duty’s new Blackout battle royale mode has finally been discovered. 

Reddit users by the name of ‘YungLurchh’ and ‘Implxse’ have posted a set of instructions that players will have to follow in order to use the Seraph and her infamous Annihilator pistol in Blackout. 

According to the posts, players will first have to either land at or find there way to the Firing Range location on the Blackout map, while also finding a Mozu pistol in the process.

The Mozu is important because players will then have to use it to shoot the six targets that are located “behind the building with the green tarp.”

The user has included a visual of where that building is approximately located, which is where the orange arrow is in the image below:

Prior to shooting the targets however, players will want to check the right table towards the targets for a box. If a box is there, players can find the Annihilator inside once the targets are shot. If not, then the Annihilator cannot be obtained and thus the Seraph cannot be unlocked that match.


Once the targets are shot, and the Annihilator obtained, players will then have to complete all of the following three tasks:

  1. Kill an enemy with the Annihilator
  2. Place Top 5 (Check notes down below)
  3. Finish the game with the Annihilator in your inventory.

Once all three tasks are complete, then the Seraph should be unlocked as a playable character in the customization menu. 


There are several additional things to note about this quest – the Annihilator is a weapon that takes up a slot in the inventory and only contains 6 bullets. This makes the challenges harder to complete, since players will likely only have one viable weapon near end-game situations.

The second note is that the “place top 5” challenge currently only applies to Duos. The placing requirement in Solos has not yet been determined, but the post mentions that players are able to get it with around 15 people still alive. 

The Seraph, which is one of 10 Specialists in the Multiplayer side of Black Ops 4, is the seventh Specialist that can be currently unlocked in Blackout.

Warzone players claim Nuketown Gulag gives unfair advantage to one side

A handful of Call of Duty Warzone players have hit out at the new Nuketown-themed Gulag, claiming it favors one side a bit too much. 

With the release of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, Warzone has now combined the weapons of both the new game as well as the previous Modern Warfare title.

Even though there’s plenty of new content, including weapons and the Rebirth Island map, but it hasn’t gone down well with every player. There are still complaints about weapons being too overpowered, attachments not working, as well as other general bugs that come from combining the two games. 

Additionally, there’s also a new Gulag – with the showers of the Verdansk prison being done away with, and being replaced by a smaller version of Nuketown. However, players have got complaints about that too.

Players believe that Gulag fights have never been this tricky to win.

With the Modern Warfare showers, players had the same angles on each side, but that’s now changed with Nuketown. It’s now asymmetrical, with more angles to look out for, and Warzone players believe it favors the side where you can shoot through what would be the Welcome to Nuketown sign. 

“40% of my gulag deaths are from my enemy camping behind the car ruins,” posted Redditor SamirDando, complaining about the head glitch the car gives players who spawn that side. “That’s not what the gulag was originally designed to do. This needs a change.”

Others agreed, adding: “Yeah can’t stand it. The damn car head glitch” and offering up possible changes. “Remove the car, change the plywood to concrete so it can’t be shot through and it’d be alright,” said another.

Yet, one player pointed out that it’s not just the head glitch that’s the problem, but how much room you have to work with. 

“In my opinion, the problem with car spawn isn’t just the head glitch, but also the fact that you can see two lanes from spawn,” noted Reddit user ReADropOfGoldenSun, “I think this could all be fixed if they moved the cardboard just a bit over so you can’t see the middle right off spawn.”

Other players, however, didn’t agree at all, claiming that are easy ways to get around the campers – either by simply hopping up on the balconies on the houses or using grenades.

It seems unlikely that the devs would make major changes to the gulag, unless their data shows that it’s completely broken and ruining the game. That might happen at a later date, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
