STG 44 Warzone unlock, blueprints, and more

How to unlock the STG 44 in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season 6, as well as details on its two lethal blueprints.

The STG can be seen sitting on a table.

 You can no longer get or use the STG 44 in Warzone because this version of the game was shut down. However, this guide will be updated and will be useful if the STG 44 returns.

After players managed to accidentally get their hands on them earlier than intended, two Call of Duty: Vanguard weapons – the STG 44 and the M1 Garand – were officially added to Warzone in Black Ops Cold War Season 6.

The STG 44, in particular, was of interest to players as it was a genuine challenger as one of the best Warzone guns. Plus, it was also incredibly satisfying to use in one of the best battle royale games, so that was reason enough.

Sadly, 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 STG 44 in Warzone anymore – though there’s always a chance fan-favorite guns will return.

STG 44 Warzone unlock

To unlock and use the STG 44 in Warzone Season 6, you had to reach two specific tiers of the Black Ops Cold War Season 6 Battle Pass to unlock two different blueprint variants of the assault rifle.

The first was unlocked at Tier 24 of the Battle Pass, and the second was unlocked at Tier 64.

If you had already reached either tier in Season 6, then the corresponding blueprint was sitting waiting for you when you booted up the game once the weapons were added. If not, then this could take you quite a bit of time to unlock – though it wasn’t hard to spend hours and hours on one of the best FPS games on PS5 and Xbox.

STG 44 Warzone blueprints

So what was the difference between the two STG 44 blueprints that were added to Warzone. Well, one featured seven attachments, and the other featured a whopping ten attachments.

Remember, when these launched, players weren’t able to customize these Vanguard weapons like every other weapon. We all had to rely on these pre-defined blueprints.

Warzone STG 44 unlock: The Bonerattler STG 44 Warzone blueprint.

At Tier 24 of the Season 6 Battle Pass, you could unlock the Bonerattler STG 44 blueprint. Its seven attachments made it more suitable for close-range combat. Among these was a new Fast Melee weapon perk, which did exactly what it said on the tin – it sped up your melee.

Warzone STG 44 unlock: The Warning Track STG 44 Warzone blueprint.

At Tier 64 was the one that all players wanted to get their hands on: the Warning Track STG 44 blueprint. This ten-attachment beast was perfect for long-range battles, with a 4-8x variable scope, a marksman barrel, and even a new weapon perk called Vital, which increased headshot damage.

So that’s how you unlocked the two STG 44 blueprints in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War during Season 6. The arrival of Vanguard weapons represented a shift in the Warzone meta at the time, as Cold War was nearly on the way out.
