How to unlock the CX-9 SMG in Modern Warfare is an essential piece of information for players looking to get ahead of the curve. Dataminers leaked in early December that several weapons from older Call of Duty games were being added to Modern Warfare. Among these weapons was the CX-9 SMG. In other entries this gun was called the “Skorpion EVO,” but Modern Warfare will have it billed as the CX-9.

How to Unlock the CX-9 SMG in Modern Warfare

How to unlock the CX-9 SMG in Modern Warfare is a fairly simple process for players with a fully updated game. Unfortunately, the gun is only useable in Survival mode as of Jan. 8, but its usability is set to be expanded in an upcoming patch. To unlock the CX-9 all players must do is secure two longshot kills using SMGs in five different multiplayer matches.

Unlocking the gun for survival mode will give players a chance to try out the weapon before its official release in Warzone and multiplayer, and decide whether or not the gun is good enough to warrant a class slot.

In Black Ops 2, this gun was called the Skorpion EVO and was the last unlockable SMG in the game. Typically, the final slot in any unlockable class is reserved for an exceptionally cool or exciting weapon, like the ACR in Modern Warfare 2 and 3.

Along with the CX-9 the Sykov is also unlockable with the same restrictions. The Sykov was also known as the Marakov in earlier entries.
