The start of Season 6 for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War is right around the corner, and with many wondering what the final season of post-launch content will feature, Activision, Raven Software, and Treyarch have unveiled a wealth of information, including intel on the Forsaken Zombies map, huge map changes to Verdansk, and so much more.
As with the start of every season, a new set of weapons will be making their way to both titles in a bid to spice up the existing metagame. One weapon arriving during Season 6 is the LAPA, a new submachine gun likely to excel in close-quarters scenarios. Here's how to get your hands on the LAPA in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
How To Unlock LAPA SMG
Considering that the LAPA isn't one of the weapons that feature as part of the Season 6 Battle Pass, the process of unlocking the SMG is slightly different. Rather than working your way through the Tiers of content, the LAPA will be available to unlock during The Haunting Halloween event which begins on October 19th.
Like the Sai melee weapon, players will have to complete a number of objectives in order to get their hands on this reward. For those that want an even faster way to unlock the LAPA, Activision says that the SMG will be available in a Store Bundle as a blueprint.
Will The LAPA Be Good?
Armed with a slightly slower rate of fire than other SMGs in the category, the LAPA has every possibility of slotting straight into the Warzone and Cold War metagame as the perfect close-range weapon to use. Whether it will compete with the likes of the LC10, Bullfrog, and MAC-10 remain to be seen.
