Call of Duty New Pistol: How to Unlock the Sykov

The Sykov cannot be unlocked via the Season 2 Battle Pass. To obtain it, players will have to complete an in-game challenge. The mission requires players to get four kills while using pistols in five different matches. There are a variety of ways to meet this requirement, but a popular method is for players to load in to Plunder and wreak havoc using any pistol of their liking.

Once players have obtained the Sykov, they will have gotten their hands on arguably the most powerful pistol in the game. It is capable of shredding enemies almost instantly. With a few voices in the Warzone community arguing that it is overpowered, we may see some nerfs to the Sykov in the future. For now, players have the chance to take advantage of this lethal weapon's power.
