When is the TEC-9 coming to Call of Duty: Warzone?

Call of Duty: Warzone is getting yet another new SMG in Season 5, the TEC-9. After being teased in Season 5 artwork and trailers, the TEC-9 has now been officially revealed as one of the two Season 5 battle pass weapons.

Despite being quite an iconic weapon in both the real world and in other FPS titles, this will be the first time the TEC-9 has ever been in a Call of Duty title. It’s hard to believe there are still guns that haven’t made it into a CoD game yet…

Unlike the art of the season’s operator and the Season 5 story trailer, the TEC-9 cannot be dual-wielded, so you don’t have to worry about expecting double the trouble this season. Despite that though, like all new additions to the game, it appears Raven Software has released yet another unbalanced monster on Verdansk, so expect to see some changes to our best Warzone guns guide soon.

Here’s everything we know about how to unlock the TEC-9 in Warzone.

TEC-9 release date Warzone

The TEC-9 released on August 12, alongside the  start of Warzone Season 5.

The SMG will be available as a battle pass weapon.

TEC-9 Warzone unlock

The TEC-9 can be unlocked in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War by reaching Tier 31 on the Season 5 battle pass.

This is free to accomplish for all players, and just requires some XP grinding.

You can purchase the battle pass in full of you’re desperate to get your hands on it, but getting to level 31 shouldn’t be too much of a grind in the early days.

That’s how to unlock the TEC-9 in Warzone Season 5 – now all that’s left to figure out is if the best TEC-9 loadout is going to set the Warzone meta alight.
