The MG 82 is the newest gun in Call of Duty: Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, a powerful LMG that can tear enemies apart. Being new, it has a particular allure for players looking to try something new or simply unlock all the weapons in the game.

How to Unlock the MG 82 in Warzone and Cold War Season 4

Because the MG 82 is so new, it's hard to gauge just how prominent it will become in the meta game of both Warzone and Cold War. It has the highest fire rate of any weapon in its class, but it falters on the mobility front, and LMGs have historically failed to make much of a mark in either setting. As the meta continues to shake out, it doesn't hurt to try out the gun for yourself and make a call on your own.

To unlock the MG 82, you'll need to reach Tier 15 of the Season 4 Battle Pass. As soon as you hit that level, you'll unlock the MG 82 for use in both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War. Alternatively, if you're looking to avoid any battle pass grinding, the MG 82 can be purchased in a weapon bundle.
