The Season 4 Reloaded update is almost here for both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War. There's a lot of new content coming to both games, with Warzone's Payload mode particularly interesting. However, we're here to talk about how you can get medieval against your enemies. Here's how you can unlock the Mace melee weapon in both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.

How To Unlock The Mace Melee Weapon

As always, there are two ways you can unlock a weapon in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.


Firstly, you can acquire a Weapon Blueprint for the weapon.

At the moment, all we know is that there's going to be an in-store bundle titled "Mystic's Scepter" that should have a Mace Weapon Blueprint in it. This will most likely cost around 1500 COD Points. Whenever a new weapon is added, it gets its own Weapon Blueprint Bundle in-store and these are never that expensive compared to the price of an Operator Bundle.

At the moment, we don't know what this Operator Bundle will look like. Expect to see more in the next two weeks.

Secondly, you can unlock the Mace melee weapon via in-game unlock challenges.


At the moment, we don't know what these challenges will entail. Warzone and Black Ops Cold War will both have separate challenges and we can imagine Black Ops Cold War Zombies is going to have a variation for players who don't play Multiplayer.

At the moment, we can only speculate that the challenge will be something along the lines of "Get X melee weapon eliminations in X multiplayer games". A variation including "Kills in quick succession" or "Kills from behind" might also show up. It's hard to predict at the moment but completing it on Black Ops Cold War's smaller Multiplayer maps, like Nuketown '84 or during Face-Off 6v6 will be easiest.

When Does It Come Out?

Season 4 Reloaded is coming out on July 15th, but the Mace melee weapon isn't available to unlock until "In Season". What does that mean?

Annoyingly, it simply means that it isn't going to release at the same time as the new update. Black Ops Cold War and Warzone usually get new content on either Tuesday or Thursday, so we could see the Mace added to the game on the following dates:

  • July 20th
  • July 22nd
  • July 27th
  • July 29th

Essentially, we should see the Mace be added to Black Ops Cold War and Warzone within two weeks.
