Wondering how to unlock the brand-new M1916 marksman rifle in Warzone Pacific Season 3? We've got you covered.

As announced in the newly released Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone Season 3 roadmap, two new weapons will be incorporated into the mix starting this Wednesday. Here's a breakdown of how to unlock the M1916 marksman rifle in Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific Season 3.

Warzone Pacific Season 3 M1916 Unlock Guide

Ultimately, the M1916 marksman rifle can be unlocked for free at Tier 15 of the Season 3 Battle Pass.

A premium battle pass is not necessary to unlock it as you just need to earn enough XP in Modern Warfare, Black Ops Cold War, Vanguard and/or Warzone to unlock the required tier to get the gun.

If you want to access the M1916 earlier, you can spend COD Points to buy its blueprints or buy tier skips from the in-game store.

Officially described in-game as a semi-automatic rifle with a "deadly combination of power and fire rate," the M1916 appears to be fun to use for medium range, but having to use sniper ammo will make it annoying to truly run in Warzone.

The M1916 is indeed the preferred weapon of Task Force Harpy's Mateo Hernandez, for those looking to complete his individual challenges and rank up more quickly in his 20-level Operator XP progression path.
