Players that are loading into games with the Sai equipped are getting an error where it equips the 1911 instead.

Treyarch haven't commented on the bug just yet - but we expect the team will soon be on the case.

Warzone Numbers Event Challenges

The event began at 1pm ET/6pm BST on September 21, so you can begin to complete challenges now.

The Numbers Event features nine challenges in Warzone, each one offering something like a weapon charm or spray for completing them. They all involve interacting with Mobile Broadcast Stations around Verdansk.

How to Unlock Sai Melee Weapon in Warzone

Thankfully, this was revealed ahead of time. You'll need to complete all nine Warzone specific Numbers Event challenges to unlock the Sai Melee weapon.

As Raven said in the Season 5 Reloaded patch notes, the Sai is the "first-ever event weapon reward."

You can also complete the Black Ops Cold War specific challenges if you'd rather do that instead. The Warzone ones are easier, however. Below is the full list of challenges.

  • Broadcast Coordinates E2 - In Warzone, activate or listen to the Mobile Broadcast Station northwest of military base.
  • Broadcast Coordinates G7 - In Warzone, activate or listen to the Mobile Broadcast Station south of Port.
  • Broadcast Coordinates D3 - In Warzone, activate or listen to the Mobile Broadcast Station north of the Airport.
  • Broadcast Coordinates C6 - In Warzone, activate or listen to the Mobile Broadcast Station west of the train station.
  • Broadcast Coordinates C5 - In Warzone, activate or listen to the Mobile Broadcast Station between Boneyard and Superstore.
  • Broadcast Coordinates H3 - In Warzone, activate or listen to the Mobile Broadcast Station east of the Salt Mine.
  • Broadcast Coordinates H6 - In Warzone, activate or listen to the Mobile Broadcast Station at the Farmland.
  • Broadcast Coordinates D8 - In Warzone, activate or listen to the Mobile Broadcast Station at the Hills.

What the Weapon Is

If you're confused as to what exactly the Sai weapon is, here's the official description, right from Raven themselves:

This dual-wield Melee weapon, often used in stealthy martial arts, is the first ever functional weapon to be awarded via limited-time event. Hundreds of years ago, it was introduced to the island of Okinawa and eventually became adopted by the local police to aid in arresting criminals. For an outlaw like Kitsune, who grew up nearly 1,200 kilometers away in Kobe, wielding one is an irony she relishes.
Its lightweight design allows for improved agility and fast attacks, which is great for taking out zombies or the competition in Multiplayer and Warzone.

If any other ways to unlock the Sai melee weapon are added to Warzone, we'll be sure to let you know.
