Season Six is well underway and the upcoming Halloween event - "The Haunting" - is going to start in a matter of hours. If you're looking for a new close-range option for Verdansk '84 or Black Ops Cold War's multiplayer, the LAPA SMG is going to be available to unlock soon. Here's how...

HOW TO UNLOCK - The LAPA SMG could hit hard

The LAPA SMG is going to be available through "The Haunting" event, or unlockable via a purchased Weapon Blueprint. At the moment, we don't know what challenges "The Haunting" is going to throw at us, but the LAPA SMG will be available to unlock by completing "one set" of event challenges.

" Full-auto submachine gun. Lightweight prototype with reliable damage and good firing control. Improved handling and range with a slower fire rate."

For example, there should be a set of Warzone challenges and a set of Black Ops Cold War challenges. Fully completing one or the other should unlock the LAPA SMG base weapon. This is similar to how the Sai melee weapon was unlockable during the "The Numbers" event. So, it shouldn't be too hard to get your head around.
