In Black Ops Cold War's year 2 content, a new weapon has been released, and here's how to unlock it. Treyarch continues to release Year 2 content for 2020's Black Ops Cold War as Call of Duty Season 4 Reloaded continues for Warzone and Vanguard.

The Scythe, a new melee weapon, has been added to the game along with the UGR submachine gun. The Scythe can be used in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, and we'll show you how to unlock it. How to unlock the Scythe

A two-handed melee weapon, the Scythe boasts a quick swing with a wide arc for deadly effectiveness. Black Ops Cold War's newest melee weapon, the scythe, can be unlocked in a few different ways. Warzone

The best way to accomplish this is to use a respawn playlist like Fortune's Keep Resurgence mode. When you find Dead Silence field upgrades, make sure you grab them.

While 15 matches might seem like a long time, just make sure you have a melee weapon when you activate Dead Silence. It's also important to remember that you won't progress toward the challenge if you leave the match early.

It should be pretty easy to accomplish this. Pair your favorite melee weapon with Ninja or Dead Silence. The challenge will likely be easier to complete if you choose playlists with smaller maps like Nuketown 24/7. When you leave early in the match, you will not make any progress toward the challenge.


If you're a Zombies fan, this unlock challenge shouldn't be too difficult. Power-Ups like Insta-Kills are pretty common in Zombies. Getting melee kills with Insta-Kill might be easier in multiplayer, especially if you select small map playlists. Store bundle

If you don't want to do the unlock challenge, you can also buy the Scythe's weapon blueprint. It is part of the Death's Approach cosmetic pack, which is themed around the blue bunny, Mister Peeks, from Zombies mode.

As part of this bundle, you get the Blood Bunny legendary variant of the Scythe, two gun blueprints, a finishing move, a watch, a weapon charm, a calling card, an emblem, and a gesture. The Death's Approach bundle is available for 2,000 CoD points.

The shop recently added a colorful anime bundle that features an impressive weapon inspect animation that triggers music and dancing. Here are some recommended weapon load-outs for your next Warzone match if you're looking for the best guns.
