A brand new SMG is set to release in Call of Duty: World War II, the ‘ZK-383’, a weapon of Czechoslovakian origin, as part of the upcoming third DLC release.

YouTuber TheseKnivesOnly has been flown out to Sledgehammer Games studio to test out the new additions to the game, which also include three new basic trainings and a new division.

The basic training’s are ‘Specialist’, ‘Wanderlust’ and ‘Escalation’, were first introduced in a video from TheseKnivesOnly, and you can find all the details on these right here.

The next day, on June 24th, the YouTuber uploaded his next video, this time on the brand new ‘Cavalry’ division, which includes a riot shield and other abilities.

And, as part of the new reveal, TheseKnivesOnly also indicated that this new division will have its own exclusive SMG – and he leaked the name in the video.

“Later in the day, I’m going to posting another video on the SMG that comes with Cavalry. Now you can use this SMG with other divisions, but it is a free to use weapon as soon as it drops, because it comes with the Cavalry division.”

TheseKnivesOnly did not actually say the name of the weapon, however, it is clearly visible at 4:01 minutes in the video, as he kills and opponent and it gives him the option to pick up the ‘ZK-383 Custom’.

Another image also shows the weapon in hand, with a “switch to fast-firing option” available, visible in the bottom left.

The ZK-383 was the Czech equivalent of the Sten in WWII, and while it was often fitted with a bi-pod, the version in the game looks to have removed this, judging from the image.

The weapon also appears on Call of Duty Wikia, described as being ‘scheduled to release’, with the description ZK383_MP.

*Update* – TheseKnivesOnly has now uploaded a full gameplay video of the new SMG, which you can watch below.

Fastest way to unlock Blue Dot reticle in Warzone & Modern Warfare

The Blue Dot reticle has fast become one of the most popular in Warzone and Modern Warfare, with players claiming it helps with their aim and accuracy when engaging in gunfights.

The Blue Dot has seen a massive uptick in use, especially as it becomes more popular among Warzone content creators who are constantly seeking new ways to maximize their ability in their gameplay.

This is somewhat similar to Infinite Warfare, another Infinity Ward game, in which pro players would use the Blue Dot to get a bit of a better view on their enemies and increase their chances in gunfights.

That said, it’s not easy to unlock, and is a bit of a grind, so be prepared to spend a good amount of time trying to get it.

Holo Sights have become increasingly popular thanks to the Blue Dot.

How to unlock the Blue Dot reticle for Holo sights

There are exactly nine tasks that have to be completed to unlock the reticle, and in a certain order, so it’s guaranteed to take up a solid wedge of time, especially if you’re exclusively playing Warzone.

Let’s take a look at the challenges you have to complete to unlock the Blue Dot for holographic sights:

  • Get 200 Kills using the Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the APX5 Holographic Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the APX5 Holographic Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the PBX Holo 7 Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the PBX Holo 7 Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using any Holo Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using any Holo Sight
  • Get 3 kills without dying 150 times using any Holo Sight

These have to be done in this order, as completing each challenge unlocks the next, and each one will also unlock a new reticle as it builds up to the big one.

This isn’t a quick unlock, so expect to sink a lot of time in.

How to unlock the Blue Dot reticle for Reflex sights

The process for unlocking Blue Dot on Holo sights is fairly similar, though there is an additional challenge thrown in there that will make the process take even longer.

Here’s what you’ve got to do:

  • Get 200 Kills using the Operator Reflex Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Operator Reflex Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the Aim-Op Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Aim-Op Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the Viper Reflex Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Viper Reflex Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using any Monocle Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Monocle Sight
  • Get 3 kills without dying 150 times using any Reflex Sight
  • Get 500 kills using any Reflex Optic

Season 6 has brought a bunch of new content, but we’re also seeing a lot of Blue Dot reticles on the battlefield.

Now you know how to do it, you’ll want to know the quickest way to unlock the reticle, too. While we can find ways to minimize how much time you have to spend grinding, it’s worth noting that this really is a grind, and will require a lot of time spent picking up the kills necessary.

We recommend playing in Shipment 24/7 or Shoot the Ship playlists in Modern Warfare multiplayer if possible, especially as with Shipment you can simply slap the Holo sight onto a shotgun or SMG and hipfire at the enemies, racking up kills as you go without being held back by aiming down the enhanced-magnification sights.

When attempting to get headshots, your safest option would probably be using a single-fire weapon like the FAL and aiming for the head — for this, you might be best off heading into the Hardcore playlists.

That said, there are plenty of ways to unlock Blue Dot, and as long as you keep up with the challenges, you should be able to unlock them through any method, though some processes may take longer than the ones we’ve laid out above.
