Call of Duty: Warzone has a variety of nasty pistol options that only get better in pairs. Here’s how to unlock the Akimbo perk (or the Dual Wield stock) for all Warzone pistols, including the Sykov, Renetti, Diamatti, .357 Magnums, and more.

Following in the footsteps of the .357 Snakeshots and the Diamatti “Duallies,” Modern Warfare’s Akimbo Sykov pistols quickly became the talk of the town across Verdansk shortly after their release. Dual-wielded pistols can be lethal in the game and, as such, often require unique challenges to unlock.

While Black Ops Cold War’s pistols require a Dual Wield stock to run as a pair, all of MW’s require the Akimbo perk — which is unlocked by completing gun-specific challenges.

And, if you want to try out any other dual-wield setups — we’ve included ways to unlock every pistol’s Akimbo or Dual Wield attachments in Warzone.

The Akimbo Sykov pistols are a dangerous, full-auto tandem.

First things first, you need to unlock the Sykov pistol — which requires an entire challenge of its own. Then, the Akimbo perk for the Sykov becomes available at Level 32, at which point you need to complete a challenge to unlock it as well: Get 3 Kills in 5 different matches using the Mo’Money perk with the Sykov.

Even Black Ops Cold War’s 1911 can be used in a pair.

Since every overpowered set of pistols eventually gets nerfed in Warzone, you can never know when the next meta handguns will pop up. That means it’s a good idea to keep these challenges in mind so that you can be the first one at the table when meta shifts.
