3 Comments

Announced along with the Season 2 Reloaded update for Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, the ZRG 20mm sniper is now available in-game. The bolt-action sniper rifle is powerful enough to score a one-shot kill for hits to the head, stomach, shoulders, or torso, as well as dealing significant damage to vehicles, though its power is tempered by a slow rate-of-fire.

As with other Call Of Duty weapons, the ZRG 20mm sniper can either be earned through in-game challenges, or simply bought outright as part of a package in the store. The new package is called Jackpot Sniper and includes a weapon charm, emblem, and a sticker as well as the new weapon. It retails for 1200 Call Of Duty points, which comes to roughly $11.

If you don't want to spend the money, you can earn the weapon by completing a sniper challenge. The challenge description reads: "using sniper rifles, earn two Longshot medals in 10 different matches." Longshot medals are earned by completing kills at a distance, meaning you'll need to get busy with your best sniper loadout. You have to play each of the 10 matches to completion too, so don't just exit out as soon as you've completed the kills.

The challenge is much easier to complete in Black Ops Cold War than in Warzone's battle royale, so playing the matches in Cold War is your best option if you own both games.
