How to unlock MX9 in Warzone 2

The MX9 is part of the Bruen platform meaning the unlock method of the SMG is slightly different than other weapons in the arsenal. To get your hands on the SMG, you'll need to use another weapon.

In the case of the MX9, level up the STB 556 assault rifle to level 13 to unlock it. To do to this as fast as possible, we recommend using a double weapon XP or making the most of a future double XP weekend.
