Wondering how to unlock the brand-new Victus XMR sniper rifle in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2 Season 01? We've got you covered.

As announced in the newly released Season 1 roadmap, two new weapons will be incorporated into the mix starting Nov. 16. Here's a breakdown of how to unlock the Victus XMR sniper rifle in Season 1 of Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2.

How to Get the Victus XMR in Warzone 2, Modern Warfare 2 Season 1

Unfortunately, at the time of publication, the only known detail regarding how to unlock the Victus XMR is that it will be a free weapon within the Season 1 Battle Pass.

The new Season 1 Battle Pass will not have a linear stream of tiers set out in a scrolling row as COD players have seen in recent years. Instead, the new Battle Pass will take the form of a multi-Sector map. Each map has at least 20 Sectors with five items in each Sector, with players having the option to unlock items in the order that they want using earned Battle Token Tier Skips.

As such, it is not clear which Sector of the Season 1 Battle Pass the Victus XMR will be on just yet, but players will be able to unlock it by spending Battle Token Tier Skips.

The Victus XMR itself is described as a "hard-hitting," bolt action sniper rifle with .50 cal BMG ammunition, and is a part of the Imperatorium Platform.


UPDATE 11/15/22: Activision has unveiled its new Battle Pass system for Season 1 of Warzone 2 and and Modern Warfare 2. To unlock the Victus XMR, players will have to complete Sector A7 of the Season 1 Battle Pass. The Victus XMR is the High Value Target (HVT) of Sector A7, which means the four items below it need to be unlocked with Battle Token Tier Skips before it is available to unlock with another Battle Token Tier Skip.

Those who want to unlock the Victus XMR in the Battle Pass need 15 Battle Token Tier Skips if they head straight from the first Sector toward Sector A7.
