This compact AR features an integrated suppressor and heavily resembles the Honey Badger from Call of Duty Ghosts. Whether it performs like its predecessor is another matter.

How to unlock Chimera in Modern Warfare 2

With Modern Warfare 2 integrating into Warzone 2, the unlock challenge will be exactly the same for both titles. Like the battle royale, there's no information on what you need to do in order to use it in a loadout.

However, most new weapons also appear in a store bundle, meaning there's an alternative unlock method you can use if you want access to the Chimera instantly.

Typically, the bundle containing the rifle will cost 2400 COD Points which is fairly pricy. But, if you're a fan of blueprints, you might want to consider this option instead of grinding a challenge.

When does Call of Duty Season One Reloaded start?

The mid-season update for Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 launches on December 14. Although the update is smaller than the one that went live at the start of the season, there's still plenty of content making its way to both titles.

In addition to the Chimera, there's a new Operator to unlock, the return of Shipment, and the chance of a hotly-anticipated dose of weapon balancing that could shake up the current Warzone 2 meta.

There you have it. That's all there is to know about unlocking the Chimera assault rifle in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2. For more on multiplayer and the battle royale, take a look at our guides highlighting the best Modern Warfare 2 assault rifle and a closer look at the best Warzone 2 LMG.
