We’ve had some pretty obscure weapons added into Call of Duty: Warzone over its lifetime, but most have mainly been confined to the melee class. However, Warzone Season 4 is adding a special weapon that will behave and rival the battle royale’s SMGs – the Nail Gun.

The Nail Gun could turn out to be one of two things in Warzone: a bit of a gimmick that doesn’t affect the Warzone meta at all, or a completely unique weapon that, because of said uniqueness, is completely broken. From the clips we’ve seen so far, it appears to be the latter thanks to its insanely fast time to kill.

But how can you unlock the Nail Gun to use in Verdansk or Rebirth Island? We’ve got the answer for you right here. Don your hard hat and high-vis vest because this nifty piece of construction equipment will be yours in no time at all when Season 4 launches.

Here’s how to unlock the Nail Gun.

Nail Gun Warzone unlock

To unlock the Nail Gun in Warzone Season 4, you need to complete an in-game challenge. There will be various challenges spread across Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, but you’ll only have to complete one of the challenges for it to unlock across all games and modes.

The Nail Gun challenge is the same in both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, so you’re probably best off doing it in Cold War multiplayer as matches are shorter and getting kills will be easier. Here’s the challenge:

Get 5 eliminations with special weapons in 15 different completed matches.

Remember, you can’t grab your five kills and back out – you must finish all 15 games.

Special weapons in Black Ops Cold War are the Ballistic Knife, the R1 Shadowhunter crossbow, and the M79 grenade launcher, so getting kills with any of these will count towards your Nail Gun challenge.

Alternatively, if you don’t want to grind the challenge, the Nail Gun has its own blueprint in the store right now. Buying the blueprint will unlock the weapon for you.

The blueprint is called Puncture Wound and is part of the Frame Work  bundle in the store.

That’s all we know about unlocking the Nail Gun in Warzone Season 4 right now, but once the challenge is revealed we’ll update this guide for you.
