The Season 2 Reloaded patch of Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific is here, boasting the arrival of the new Armaguerra 43 submachine gun (SMG), with a menu of weapon balance changes. Additionally, the update also offers major reworks to Rebirth Island, a new Rebirth Reinforced game mode, and the return of Juggernaut Armor drops.

While there is clearly lots for Call of Duty players to get excited about, perhaps the most compelling aspect of the update is the new Armaguerra 43. The gun is characterised by its "very high rate of fire," which is "effective at short to medium range engagements."

Notably, the gun is only held back by its high recoil and low damage. However, this can be ameliorated with the right loadout to match your playstyle. Ultimately, the Armaguerra 43 SMG is the fastest-firing weapon in its class without any attachments and is a lethal threat to enemies running into you in close quarters, making it a definite "must-have" on smaller maps this season.

How to get Armaguerra 43 in Warzone and Vanguard Season 2 Reloaded

There are currently three ways to unlock the Armaguerra 43 SMG in COD Vanguard or Warzone Season 2 Reloaded, which involves players completing one of two in-game weapon complete challenges or purchasing the Weapon Blueprint via the Store Bundle, releasing later this season.

Vanguard unlock challenge

The first way to unlock the Armaguerra 43 SMG is to "get ten hipfire kills in a single match 15 times." This might be gruelling for some players since at least 15 matches must be played to unlock the gun. Fortunately, you can use any weapon to complete this challenge.

It might be best to consider playing on smaller Vanguard maps like Shipment or Das Haus, which increases your chances of running into enemies and landing kills. Similarly, Plunder also offers a greater likelihood of landing kills, thanks to the higher player respawn rate.

Vanguard Zombies unlock challenge

Players who take on the new Sacrifice Objective in Der Anfang of COD Vanguard Zombies can also earn the Armaguerra 43 SMG as a reward. To unlock the gun, players must "kill frozen zombies 400 times with an SMG." This might be easier to complete using the Welgun.
