Update - How To Unlock The Nail Gun

We all know the drill by now, right? There are two ways to unlock new guns in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. Firstly, you can unlock the Nail Gun if you purchase a Store Bundle with a Weapon Blueprint for the weapon included.

Treyarch has shared the first Nail Gun Weapon Blueprint Bundle with us early, so we now know which one you need to be looking out for when Season 4 hits. The Nail Gun will be included in the "Framework" Bundle. This includes the "Puncture Wound" Legendary Blueprint, the "Switcheroo" Finishing Move, the "Horrible Timing" Watch, the "Celebratory Smoke" Gesture, and two Tier skips!

Season 4 Release Date

We won't find out exactly how to unlock the Nail Gun until Call of Duty Season 4 goes live and it's added to Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. So... When is that?

Black Ops Cold War is getting the update a little bit before Warzone, but the cross-progression between both games means that the Season 4 content is going to be added at the same time. You can start progressing towards the Nail Gun Unlock Challenges from 21:00 PST (June 16) / 00:00 EST / 05:00 BST on June 17th. There should be one relevant to Warzone as well as one relevant to Black Ops Cold War.

The Black Ops Cold War Unlock Challenge for the Nail Gun will be easier, but you'll still be able to get it without the game.

The Nail Gun is just one of five new weapons to be added to Call of Duty in Season 4; There's also three new Operators, new Zombies content, and a whole lot more.
