What are Special Weapons in Warzone?

The topic of Special Weapons has become a main point of discussion in the Call of Duty universe as more and more players look to unlock the new Nail Gun. Here's a breakdown of what Special Weapons are in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4.

What are Special Weapons in Warzone?

For Modern Warfare-and-Warzone-only players, especially those looking to acquire the Nail Gun, the Special Weapons category is oddly nowhere to be found.

Meanwhile, in Black Ops Cold War, Special Weapons have their own dedicated type of weapon class.

Unfortunately, the dev team in charge of integrating the two games have seemed to make a rare mistake in overlooking this detail.

As a result of this, confusion has flared up recently in the community as the new Nail Gun unlock challenge reads:

Complete the unlock criteria challenge—Get 5 eliminations with Special Weapons in 15 different completed matches.

Fortunately, although the Special Weapons class isn't explicitly stated in Warzone, these Black Ops Cold War weapons in the game still hold their uncommon status all the same:

  • M79
  • Nail Gun
  • R1 Shadowhunter
  • Ballistic Knife

As such, players can still use the aforementioned Special Weapons in Warzone to unlock the new Season 4 Nail Gun.
