Season 5 of Warzone is well underway and while plenty of focus is on the upcoming alpha for Call of Duty: Vanguard, Activision and Raven Software have caught everyone off-guard by releasing the RAAL MG light machine gun into the battle royale and into Modern Warfare. The powerful LMG appeared for a few days back in February 2021 but was swiftly removed, leaving many wondering when the weapon would ever be released.
While the Season 5 roadmap featured no mention of the RAAL MG being released, it's likely that it has arrived as part of update 1.41 which has enabled players to change their loadouts during pre-game lobbies as well as changing the main menu background. Find out how to get your hands on the RAAL MG in our handy guide!
RAAL MG Warzone
Described as a lightweight machine gun, the RAAL MG boasts some impressive damage and range statistics alongside a steady rate of fire. With recent nerfs to the popular C58 and Krig 6 assault rifles, there is a chance of the RAAL slotting into the ever-changing Warzone meta as the next best weapon to use at mid-range and long distances.
How To Unlock RAAL MG
Seeing as the RAAL MG wasn't included within the Season 5 Battle Pass or available in a content bundle, players are required to complete a challenge in order to unlock the base version of the LMG. Details on the challenge can be found below:
- Get 5 kills in 7 different matches while using LMGs equipped with a Scout Optic.
In order to complete the challenge as fast as possible, we recommend dropping into a Rebirth Island playlist where it's much easier to find an opposition to eliminate. If you still have Modern Warfare installed, it's worth considering jumping into multiplayer to get the challenge done even faster.
For those that don't want to complete a challenge and still get their hands on the RAAL MG, it's available as the Rook Blueprint in "The Hollow" cosmetics bundle. It can be found on the store for a reasonable 1400 COD Points.
