Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific Season 3 will feature some new and powerful weapons with its release of the Classified Arms update on 27th April 2022. One new weapon that has fans excited is the Nikita AVT Assault Rifle.

If you're curious and want to know more about this new weapon, we have you covered with today's guide. We'll look at how to unlock the Nikita AVT AR in Call of Duty Warzone Pacific Season 3 and everything else you need to know about this new close-range weapon.

How to Unlock Nikita AVT AR in Warzone Pacific Season 3

To unlock the Nikita AVT Assault rifle, it's likely that the player will need to reach either tier 15 or 31 of the battle pass. While there's no official tier list from the developers, this estimate comes from the structure followed in previous new weapon releases.

The weapon will be released as a part of the new update for Warzone Pacific and Vanguard Season three called "Classified Arms". And with it comes some brand new weapons such as the M1916: Marksman Rifle, the Melee Sledgehammer, and the Nikita AVT Assault Rifle.

The Nikita AVT AR is free, so you won't need to have a premium battle pass to unlock it; you need to earn enough XP to reach the required tier for the weapon. If you want to unlock it earlier, you can buy its blueprints from the store, which will cost you some CP.

The weapon itself is described in an official blog post as "Accurate and reliable with best-in-class fire rate; this AR can be outfitted to exceed in CQC or long-range combat scenarios." So we can expect the Nikita AVT to be a beast in close quarters, but it will need some TLC by way of attachments to perform well at long-range gunfights.

The Nikita is similar to an SMG but offers a more mid-range capacity, so expect a fast rate of fire with high recoil. This means players will need to get accustomed to the recoil to master it fully, or they can equip some attachments to control the kickback.

The Warzone Pacific and Vanguard's new updates featured in Classified Arms will be released on 27th April 2022. We're excited to experience the unique gameplay with brand new weapons like the Nikita AVT AR.
