Wondering how to get Snake Shot in Warzone? The Akimbo pistols are currently dominating the meta game, but they have to be unlocked before players can use them. Here's what you need to do to gain access to these devastating pistols.

How to Get Snake Shot in Warzone, Explained

Akimbo is one of the five attachments for pistols in Warzone. It allows the user to wield two pistols at once. The Snake Shot Akimbo loadout refers specifically to dual-wielding the .357 revolver with a specific type of ammunition. The full loadout is as follows:

  • Barrel: .357 Long
  • Laser: 5mW Laser
  • Trigger Action: Match Grade Trigger
  • Ammunition: Snake Shot
  • Perk: Akimbo

Snake Shot rounds up the damage from the pistols, making them capable of knocking an enemy down in one or two shots.

To unlock the Akimbo attachment for a pistol you have to complete challenges in Modern Warfare's multiplayer. The challenge for each pistol is different, but for the .357 you'll need to get three kills in five different matches using the Recon perk, which you can only unlock once you reach level 34 with the .357.

The fastest way to level your .357 is likely to use a weapon XP boost and grind the Shoot the Ship playlist in multiplayer.

Once you've unlocked Akimbo for the .357, you'll have to pick up the Snake Shot Akimbo loadout from a loadout supply crate dropped in the match or bought from the shop.
