How to unlock the MG 82 in Black Ops Cold War Season 5 is a question that a lot of players are asking at the moment now that all-new content is coming to Call of Duty starting tonight.

For those who may have missed out on reaching Tier 15 of the Season Four Battle Pass, Treyarch has added Weapon Unlock Challenges for the LMG that will be available at the start of Season Five. Here's how to unlock the MG 82 in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Season 5.

Here is the challenge for players to unlock the MG 82 in Season Five.

Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer/Warzone: Using LMGs, kill 3 or more enemies without reloading in 15 different completed matches.

However, since most DLC Black Ops Cold War weapons follow a similar trend, the challenge will likely involve earning kills in Multiplayer/Zombies while using an LMG in one form or another.

Once players complete the challenge after Season Five officially releases, the MG 82 can be used freely in any loadout.

After being heavily nerfed for being so overpowered that it made our All-time Best Warzone Loadouts list, the MG 82 is now viewed by some in the community as one of the most underrated guns in Call of Duty.

While the MG 82 likely will continue to a sleeper option in both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War going forward, it's nice to see Treyarch add these unlock challenges so that players who've never used the LMG will have the chance to try it out if they so choose.

Season Five for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone launches Friday, Aug. 13, at 12 a.m. ET.
