Having taken a look at the requirements needed to unlock the Battle Axe, Reddit user 'MurderGirraffe19' shared their thoughts on the somewhat elaborate challenge criteria. "I don't want the battle axe that much," they stated.

As the image above shows, the challenge needed to get your hands on the Battle Axe is to "get a kill with a gun, melee weapon, and piece of lethal equipment in 15 different completed matches," which is far from a straightforward process. Other players were quick to suggest that the complex nature of the challenge was a ploy to get players to purchase a store bundle where a Battle Axe blueprint can be earned. "They might as well have added "BUY OUR BUNDLE PLZ! at the end," one player commented.

Completing challenges to unlock weapons is nothing new in Call of Duty but this particular set of requirements has not gone down well with the community. Whether Treyarch and Raven Software decides to make the challenge a little easier remains to be seen.
