Black Ops Cold War Season 4 marks the return of one of the series’ most unusual weapons. Last seen in Black Ops 3, this repurposed power tool has put the final nail in the coffins of many players.
Right, the nail gun is back. The forerunner of the DIY 11 Renovator has joined Black Ops Cold War and offers operators the opportunity to use a device beyond its intended purpose.
As Treyarch puts it, “This slow-firing, highly mobile power tool uses compressed air to fire fast-moving projectiles that cause high damage at close range.” Better still, the special SMG only takes three hits at close range to get one Eliminate enemy in multiplayer.
If you want to combine the best of TimTheTatman and Tim the Tool Man, here’s what you need to do.
How to unlock the nail gun
To unlock the nail gun, players must complete in-game challenges in either multiplayer, zombies, or purchase a blueprint bundle from the store. The exact challenges required are currently unknown. We’ll update this guide with the details when the gun drops.
However, we do know that the Framework Bundle is the premium purchase option that comes into the store that contains the weapon. The bundle offers the following:
- Nail gun with puncture wound
- Switcheroo Finishing Move
- Terrible timing clock
- Solemn smoke gesture
- Skips 2 levels
The gnarled look of the Puncture Wound Nail Gun cosmetics is certainly a strong argument for the purchase. But you have to decide if novelty is worth your hard earned money.
Black Ops Cold War is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X | S.
