The M79 is the only one of the four weapons that can be unlocked by leveling up. Once you've reached Level 52 in either Cold War or Warzone. The remaining three have to be unlocked by completing an in-game challenge. The most recent special weapon to arrive in the Call of Duty universe is the Nail Gun, a compact weapon perfect for dealing a huge amount of damage in close-quarters combat.

Which Is The Best Special Weapon?

Considering each of the four weapons bears little to no resemblance to each other, it can be difficult to determine which of the weapons are the best to use. Depending on your style of play, each of the four special weapons is a viable option when building a loadout.

For close-range engagements, the Ballistic Knife and Nail Gun excel but if you're after something that performs well at longer distances, the R1 Shadowhunter is the better option.
