When finding a strong submachine gun (SMG) in Warzone and Vanguard, there are plenty of options to select. The vast majority of weapons in the category excel in close-range combat with some even managing to make an impact in mid-range engagements. With Season 5 fast approaching, another one is set to join the arsenal.

Known as the RA 225, this particular SMG features a high fire rate and high mobility levels that are perfect for fast and furious gameplay. However, a fast rate of fire often means recoil that's difficult to control.

Warzone Season 5 start date

The final season of the Pacific era commences on August 24, 2022, 24 hours after Season 5 of Vanguard gets underway. As one of the longest seasons of post-launch content, there's plenty of time to unlock the RA 225.

How to unlock RA 225

As one of two weapons available to unlock by working through the Season 5 battle pass, the process of unlocking the RA 225 is incredibly straightforward.

The new SMG will appear at tier 31 of the Season 5 battle pass. Purchasing the premium battle pass bundle will speed up the grind thanks to the 25 tier skips but if you want to get your hands on the SMG as fast as possible, you'll need to spend COD Points on six additional skips to unlock it instantly.
