Looking for the answer on how to unlock the brand-new UGM-8 LMG in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4? Look no further.

As announced in the newly released Vanguard and Warzone Mercenaries of Fortune roadmap, four new weapons will be incorporated into the mix throughout the season starting June 22. Here's a breakdown of how to unlock the UGM-8 LMG in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4.

Warzone Season 4 UGM-8 Unlock Guide

Ultimately, the UGM-8 can be unlocked for free in the Season 4 Battle Pass. Although more information on that process is said to be coming, players can expect the UGM-8 to either be the Tier 15 or Tier 31 reward.

Owning the premium battle pass will likely not be necessary to unlock it as players will probably 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.

For those who want to access the UGM-8 faster, players will almost certainly also be able to spend COD Points to buy its blueprints or buy battle pass tier skips from the in-game store.

Officially described in-game as "ideal for players looking to keep pace with their teammates while offering suppressive fire," the UGM-8 appears primed to shake up the LMG meta right away.

UPDATE 6/21/22: The UGM-8 LMG has been confirmed to be the Tier 31 reward for the Season 4 Battle Pass. It will also have a Legendary "Beach Coral" Weapon Blueprint available at Tier 24, giving players early access to the new LMG with cosmetic features that include a wooden foregrip and waving ren lines over white. Alternatively, players can pick up the UGM-8 in the Shattered Dreams Bundle for 1,200 COD Points.
