Call of Duty Warzone: what are special weapons?

The nail gun is one of the new weapons in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4, and the challenge of unlocking it requires that players with special weapons be eliminated. But what exactly are special weapons? Warzone weapons are divided into several categories, and there isn’t a specific weapons page anywhere. This is because the category only exists in Black Ops Cold War, and the Nail Gun is technically a Cold War weapon. However, there are a lot of people who just play Warzone, so this is an unfortunate oversight. However, you don’t have to worry as we will assist you with a list of all the special weapons in Warzone.

What are special weapons in Warzone?

Special weapons are a category of secondary weapons in Black Ops Cold War. This category does not exist in Warzone, so special weapons are spread across the other categories. There are four special weapons in Call of Duty: Warzone, each of which is listed below.

  • M79 grenade launcher
  • R1 Shadowhunter crossbow
  • Ballistic knife
  • Nail gun

If you want to unlock the nail gun, you will need to get 5 eliminations using special weapons in 15 different completed games. This challenge was clearly designed for Cold War multiplayer as it is a difficult task to get enough kills in so many games that these weapons in particular are used. That said, you shouldn’t have it too hard to complete this challenge when playing Plunder as this mode offers respawns. However, if you own Cold War, you can just jump into a few multiplayer matches or play a few rounds of zombies to quickly unlock this new weapon.

Call of Duty: Warzone is available now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
