How To Unlock The Battle Axe In Warzone and Black Ops Cold War

All eyes are focused on the launch of Season 6 for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, the final dose of post-launch content for Treyarch's fifth Black Ops title. Alongside the huge changes to Verdansk, the arrival of new Operators, and the launch of the Forsaken Zombies map, there are a number of new weapons that will be arriving when the action begins on October 7th.

Alongside the likes of the .410 Ironhide and the Grav, there's another melee weapon joining the arsenal, ideal for those close-quarters situations where a gun isn't best-suited for the job at hand. Here's how to get your hands on the Battle Axe in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.

The Battle Axe is one of the weapons that isn't included in the Season 6 Battle Pass, meaning a different method is required in order to get your hands on this razor-sharp addition to the weapon arsenal. The weapon will be available as soon as Season 6 begins and will require players to complete an in-game challenge. Here are the challenge requirements:

  • Get a kill with a gun, melee weapon, and piece of Lethal equipment in the same life in 15 different matches.

The second way to unlock the Battle Axe is by purchasing a bundle from the in-game store. By purchasing the bundle, you'll gain access to the base version of the weapon alongside a blueprint.

Alongside the new weapons, players can also look forward to the start of The Haunting Halloween event which gets underway on October 19th. For more Season 6 news, check out how to unlock the Hammer and Sickle melee weapon and everything you need to know about the original Gulag making its return.
