How to unlock the Welgun in Warzone & Vanguard

In order to unlock the Welgun in Warzone and Vanguard, players need to get 10 kills with an SMG while aiming down sights in a single match 15 times. This may seem like an arduous task, but if you queue up for games of TDM and play on Vanguard’s smaller maps, you’ll be accumulating plenty of kills in no time. 

If this method is proving too difficult, then there is the Zombies route, which requires you to claim five rapid-fire headshot kills in 50 different portal zones. This method does take a lot more time but can be easier if you find fragging in Vanguard’s multiplayer a little difficult.

Failing that, the Welgun can also be unlocked by purchasing the Reserved Steel Weapon Blueprint bundle. This obviously will set you back a number of CoD Points, so only do this if you wish to instantly unlock the new SMG without grinding. 

So, there you have it, how to unlock the Welgun in both Vanguard and Warzone. Once you’ve obtained this deadly SMG, you’ll be able to pick up plenty of close-quarter kills in the Season One Reloaded update.
