How to unlock the ZRG 20mm Sniper

Black Ops Cold War is well into season two, having just updated the midpoint with update 1.14. With the Delta Force sniper Terrell Wolf joining the fight, the 20mm ZRG sniper rifle seems like the perfect solution for the new operator.

With a higher bullet speed than any other weapon in its class, the ZRG 20mm is best for those attacking from the greatest range. The new sniper grabs devastating power due to its ability to eliminate a target with a “single shot to the head, chest or shoulders”. How do you get this powerful weapon?

The 20 mm ZRG sniper rifle cannot currently be unlocked in the game and is marked as “in season”. That said, we have details on how it will be obtained. The mid-season update for Season 2 shed some light on the sniper’s capture methods, of which there are two.

The first method is standard for newcomers to the recent Call of Duty games. A multiplayer challenge must be completed for the base weapon to become available in player loadouts. While Treyarch did not reveal the requirements for the weapon, a leak appears to have revealed that information. The challenge is as follows:

Earn 2 Longshot Medals in 15 different games using Sniper Rifles.

If you would like to source a decorated version of the ZRG 20mm, a blueprint will be included in the Jackpot Sniper Bundle. The exact prices for the bundle are unknown, but are expected to appear in the store on the same day the gun goes live.

The second season of Black Ops Cold War is now live on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S available.
