M1 Garand Warzone unlock, blueprints, and more

Check out how to unlock the M1 Garand in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season 6 for some old-school action.

 You can no longer get or use the M1 Garand in Warzone because this version of the game was shut down. However, this guide will be updated and will be useful if the M1 Garand returns.

Two exciting Call of Duty: Vanguard weapons – the STG 44 and the M1 Garand – were officially added to Warzone as earnable rewards in the Black Ops Cold War Season 6 Battle Pass, well after players had sneakily got them in their hands early.

The M1 Garand challenged the best Warzone guns with a bit of old-school firepower. Plus, the iconic and ever-satisfying ‘ding’ of the M1 Garand’s reload was too good to pass up in one of the best battle royale games.

However, even being in some of the best Warzone loadouts didn’t save the M1 Garand. With the removal of Black Ops Cold War’s integration with Warzone, its arsenal and all of its content were removed from the battle royale mode. That means that you can’t currently get the M1 Garand in Warzone anymore – though there’s always a chance fan-favorite guns will return.

M1 Garand Warzone unlock

To unlock and use the M1 Garand in Warzone, you had to reach two specific tiers of the Black Ops Cold War Season 6 Battle Pass to unlock two different blueprint variants.

The first was unlocked at Tier 34, and the second was unlocked at Tier 72. If you had been grinding Season 6 and already reached either tier, then the blueprints were waiting for you when you next logged in after their arrival.

As you can imagine, this took quite some time to unlock, especially the second blueprint at level 72. In fact, the M1 Garand’s blueprints took longer to get than the STG 44, so we had to wait longer to get our hands on it when it debuted. Luckily, it wasn’t hard to spend countless hours on one of the best FPS games on PS5 and Xbox.

Remember, when the M1 Garand and the STG 44 were first released in Black Ops Cold War’s version of Warzone, players weren’t able to customize these Vanguard weapons like every other weapon. Instead, we all had to rely on these pre-determined blueprints.

M1 Garand Warzone blueprints

The M1 Garand’s two blueprints in Warzone featured different combinations of attachments. Here’s a rundown of each one.

Warzone M1 Garand unlock: A White Obsidian M1 Garand blueprint in Warzone.

At Tier 34 of the Season 6 Battle Pass, you could unlock the White Obsidian M1 Garand blueprint. The eight attachments on this blueprint were fit for a long-range marksman. It featured a bipod, an “XXL” magazine, and a 3-6x variable zoom scope. It also had a new weapon perk called On Hand.

Warzone M1 Garand unlock: An Heirloom M1 Garand blueprint in Warzone.

At Tier 72 of the Warzone Season 6 Battle Pass was the Heirloom M1 Garand blueprint. This was also a long-range specialist, with many similar attachments to the White Obsidian. However, it had an intriguing weapon perk called Acquisition, which boosted accuracy after a long-range kill.

So that’s how you unlocked the two M1 Garand blueprints in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season 6. With long-range snipers like the Swiss K31 dominating the Warzone meta at the time, the M1 Garand certainly had some competition.
