ZRG Sniper Rifle: How to unlock in Warzone and Cold War

Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 2 is almost at its end, which means that we can expect the last weapon of the season, the ZRG 20mm sniper rifle, soon to be added.

This will be the fourth Cold War sniper rifle added to the game, and both Cold War and Warzone players are excited to try it.

This powerful sniper rifle fires 20mm rounds, boasts a higher bullet velocity than any other weapon in its class, and has a fast reloading speed, making it perfect for extremely long ranges.

This devastating sniper rifle is soon to be released, but thanks to some leaks, we already know what you need to do in order to unlock it.

Once the sniper is released this week, the weapon should be available either for unlocking through challenges or alternatively, you can buy the ZRG blueprints as a part of several bundles in the store.

For the base weapon, a renowned Call of Duty leaker by the name of TailsDoll553 was able to discover unlock requirements for the weapon, even before the ZRG 20mm was added to the game.

For the experienced players who like to use sniper rifles, the challenge shouldn't be that hard at all.

To unlock the ZRG 20mm, players will need to get 2 Longshot Medals in 15 different matches. Keep in mind that this will count towards your progress only if you earn 2 Longshot Medals in a match that you've completed. If you leave the match early, it will not count even if you got 2 Longshot Medals.

And to earn Longshot Medals, as the name suggests, all you need to do is to get a kill from a long distance, which is usually the case when you use a sniper rifle. Get 2 Longshot Medals per game in 15 different (and completed) matches and the ZRG 20mm Sniper Rifle is yours!
