As one of the two weapons appearing when Season 5 launches, players can get their hands on the TEC-9 by reaching Tier 31 of the Season 5 Battle Pass. This may take some time but it's certainly worth the grind.

Just like Warzone, players will need to reach Tier 31 of the Battle Pass in order to unlock the newest SMG to arrive into the ever-expanding arsenal. To unlock the weapon as quickly as possible, we recommend purchasing the Battle Pass with 20 Tier Skips followed by buying the remaining Tiers. It's certainly a costly method but it's a lot faster than working your way through the Battle Pass without Double XP.
