Call of Duty's Haunting event is live, bringing spooky modes, horror-themed operator skins, and a brand-new submachine gun for both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. Here we'll show you the different ways you can unlock the LAPA submachine gun.

How To Unlock The LAPA

The LAPA is a full-auto submachine gun that is part of the Haunting event rewards, and just like the Sai weapon reward from the Numbers event, you must complete one of the two sets of event challenges to unlock the weapon for free.

The Haunting includes a set of nine Black Ops Cold War challenges that can be completed in either multiplayer or Zombies. Warzone also has a unique set of nine challenges to complete, for a total of 18 challenges and 19 rewards to earn during the event. Completing a full set of nine challenges in either game will unlock the LAPA submachine gun and reward and 5000 XP.
