The Mid-Season 4 update for both Call of Duty: Warzone and Black Ops Cold War is set to release On July 15. Treyarch has a good amount of content slated for the update, including a new Zombies map, Mauer der Toten. However, fans of the multiplayer side of things are more excited for the OTs 9 submachine gun.
Season 4 of both games introduced weapons like the C58, Nail Gun and MG 82. The OTs 9 was held back, though, to provide fans enough time to unlock the other weapons. Now that they’ve had a decent amount of time, the OTs 9 is coming with the Mid-Season update. Before it releases, fans can learn about the two ways to unlock the SMG in both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.
Unlocking the OTs 9 in Warzone and Cold War
Once the OTs 9 releases next week, players will discover there are two ways to unlock it. This is standard for every mid-season weapon release and Treyarch has yet to change up the formula.
The first way to unlock the new SMG is through an in-game challenge. The challenge will likely be similar in Warzone and Cold War. In the past, the unlock challenges haven’t been too difficult but they take several matches to complete. Treyarch will unveil the challenge when the Mid-Season update goes live.
The second way to unlock the OTs 9 is through an in-game Store bundle. When players buy the bundle with the SMG included, they’ll immediately unlock it. However, they’ll only unlock the blueprint that’s in the bundle, not the base weapon. This means that camo challenges won’t progress until players complete the unlock challenge.
It might be wise for players to see how the OTs 9 performs before spending COD Points on its bundle. It’s described as an SMG with “great stopping power and a phenomenal rate of fire” but has a base magazine of only 20 rounds and high recoil. The OTs 9 could go either way when trying to find a spot in the meta of Warzone or Cold War.
