Call of Duty: Warzone and Vanguard Season 5 is finally here. With it, came a bunch of exciting changes.

Although map changes and small gameplay changes are always good, new weapons are what's most interesting. Some weapons are great and others not so much. But with Season 5 came a weapon that definitely wasn't used in World War II, the EX1.

The EX1 is an energy weapon that shoots laser beams at enemies. The gun can rip apart enemies from any distance. Let's talk about how to earn this new futuristic weapon.

Thankfully, all players will be able to earn this new weapon for free. At Tier 15 in the Season 5 battle pass, the EX1 is available.

Once you have the EX1, there are a few things to understand. You can change the attachments of this weapon and change what type of weapon it is. With the burst barrel, you can turn the EX1 into a three-burst weapon. With the Charge Sniper Barrel, you can turn the EX1 into a sniper.

Other attachments can change the charge-up time when shooting. With no barrel attachments, the weapon has a charge-up time before reaching its full rate of fire. Lastly, you can also add explosive rounds onto your EX1 to deal a little extra damage.
