As mentioned, the EX1 Energy Rifle will be available at the launch of Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone Season 5. Like the RA 225 SMG, players can unlock the EX1 Energy Rifle for free by reaching Tier 15 of the Season 5 Battle Pass.

According to the official blog post, the EX1 Energy Rifle "leaves behind traditional ballistics in favor of a customizable battery system used to power its attacks." It's also described as an "effective at long range" gun with unlimited ammo.

Instead of ammo, the EX1 Energy Rifle will have a charge mechanic that requires a "cooling off period after depleting its charge capacity." So be careful not to get caught out while "reloading." Beyond this, the EX1 will be a favorable long-range weapon for players looking for an alternative to traditional weapons like Sniper Rifles.

Moreover, it's also fully customizable via the Gunsmith, allowing players to fully embrace the EX1's destructive potential in Season 5 of Warzone and Vanguard.

"Equip the Heat Muzzle for extra charge capacity, insert a new Battery, and transform the EX1’s capabilities with the Burst Barrel or Charge Sniper Barrel. Its Gunsmith potential is impressive, with options for every scenario." With that said, here's the best EX1 class setup for Warzone and Vanguard Season 5.
