How To Get The Streetsweeper In Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War And Warzone

The shotgun isn't that tough to get, provided you're skilled with the games' current shotguns already.


Though some players have reported the challenge required to unlock it being bugged, the powerful Streetsweeper shotgun is available to unlock via Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The shotgun seems like it's going to decimate enemy players, and the challenge to unlock it is actually pretty easy to unlock.

How to unlock the Streetsweeper

Unlocking the Streetsweeper shotgun requires getting a three-kill streak using Black Ops Cold War shotguns at least 15 times. This means that any shotgun in Black Ops Cold War is eligible for the challenge, along with those same shotguns within Warzone. You can only do this once per match, however, so getting repeated kill-streaks in the same match won't add to your total. Warzone matches are also eligible if you don't play Black Ops Cold War. What is earned in Black Ops Cold War should carry over to Warzone, as well, so you won't have to complete this twice.

You can also get a special version of the weapon called the Surge Protector as part of the Shock Value pack for 1,200 Call of Duty Points. If you go this route, that variant will be available instantly without having to complete the challenge. The pack also includes a legendary charm, legendary emblem, and epic sticker. You'll be wrecking unsuspecting enemies for about $10.

Once you have the shotgun, you'll see it's capable of truly ridiculous damage. Some adjustments could change that in the future. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War recently nerfed several weapons, including a DMR that was considered very overpowered. Playlist updates also shifted the modes available in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, and added some fan-favorite modes back to the games. It's not always clear how long these modes will last. If you want to play them, we suggest getting into a match as soon as possible.
