In Call of Duty: Warzone, a powerful assault rifle is arguably the most vital component of any player’s loadout. Whether it’s the current king of the AR’s, the CR-56 AMAX, or an all-rounder like the RAM-7, the majority of players will base their best Warzone loadout around their favourite assault rifle.
In Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 4, we’re getting a new addition to the AR class: the C58. However, the C58 looks as if it won’t be challenging the best AMAX Warzone loadout for its title as the battle royale’s top long-range beamer. According to Activision’s description of the incoming weapon, the C58 is an AR suited for close-range combat, so it may actually be a rival to some of the best SMGs in Warzone instead.
But how do you unlock the new C58 in Warzone when Season 4 drops? Well, we’ve got you covered on that front.
Here’s how to unlock the C58.
C58 Warzone unlock
The C58 assault rifle can be unlocked in Warzone via the Season 4 battle pass for free. All you have to do is reach tier 31 on the battle pass, and the base weapon is all yours to use in Warzone.
You won’t need to complete any challenges to get your hands on the C58 – just some good old fashioned grinding. Remember to use those double XP tokens if you have any lying about.

There will also likely be a C58 Warzone blueprint hitting the store at some point in Season 4, however most players should comfortably be able to hit tier 31 on the battle pass before the season is out.
Remember that your battle pass progress is linked with Black Ops Cold War, so you can unlock the C58 by grinding multiplayer or zombies as well as Warzone.
