How to unlock the AMP63 in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War

Here's how to get the AMP63 pistol in all of its fully automatic glory in Call of Duty Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.

 You can no longer get the AMP63 in Warzone because this version of the game was shut down. However, this guide will be updated and will come in handy if the AMP63 ever returns. It is still available in Black Ops Cold War multiplayer via the in-game challenge.

While most of the hype around the Season 3 Reloaded update in Call of Duty: Warzone and Black Ops Cold War revolved around the Rambo getting added to the game, the addition of the AMP63 did soon become an even bigger story.

‘Why is that,’ you ask? If you remembered the Sykov; the terrifying, full-auto, dual-wield monster of a pistol that ran riot in Verdansk for a few weeks, then the AMP63 sent shivers down your spine. There were some concerning similarities between the Sykov and the AMP63 that meant we had yet another of the best Warzone guns on our hands.

Unfortunately, with Warzone’s integration with Black Ops Cold War now over, the AMP63 is no longer available in the current version of the battle royale mode. However, if you’re returning to Black Ops Cold War’s traditional multiplayer, then the weapon can be used and unlocked there still via the standard in-game challenge unlock.

How to unlock the AMP63 in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War

You could unlock the AMP63 pistol via an in-game challenge in Warzone, Black Ops Cold War’s multiplayer, or Zombies modes.

In multiplayer or Warzone, this challenge required you to kill five enemies in 20 separate matches using a pistol. In Zombies, the challenge was to get 400 critical kills using pistols. As always, matches had to be completed to ensure your progress counted, so no leaving matches early! This made completing the challenge much quicker in the traditional multiplayer offerings of Black Ops Cold War.

Conveniently, with Warzone no longer integrated with Cold War’s content, favoring more recent releases instead, you can now only get the AMP63 in Black Ops Cold War anyhow.

Alternatively, if you didn’t want to grind a challenge to get your hands on the AMP63, you could have also unlocked it by buying a blueprint in the store…

The AMP63 was released with its own blueprint variant in the store and was the quickest way to unlock the pistol in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War. It did mean parting with some cash, but the Gamma Ray AMP63 did look absolutely marvellous.

AMP63 release date

The AMP63 was released in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War on June 1, 2021, as part of the Season 3 offerings.

Whether you decided to complete a challenge or dive into your wallet, the AMP63 was worth the investment of time or money. When used as a dual-wield pistol, the AMP63 absolutely shredded the enemy.
