After weeks of anticipation, the Ice Ax Melee Weapon has finally arrived in CoD Vanguard at the end of Season 2 Reloaded and we have the full rundown on how to unlock it.
When Season 2 was first revealed in February, the Ice Ax melee weapon was clearly seen as day in the promotional roadmap† Despite nine weeks flying by, developers remained silent about this mysterious addition.
Even with Season 2 reloaded in the rear view mirror and Season 3 stealing the spotlight, nothing changed until the very last minute. In a surprise update on April 20, the Ice Ax Melee Weapon finally appeared.
If you want to get your hands on this long-plagued weapon, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a full guide on how to unlock the Ice Ax Melee Weapon.
How to Unlock Ice Ax Melee Weapon in CoD Vanguard
Players have two options when it comes to unlocking the Ice Ax Melee Weapon in CoD Vanguard. The first is through regular multiplayer, while the second is through Vanguard’s unique Zombies mode.
If multiplayer is more your speed, your job is to 3 Throwing Knife kills in a single match 15 times†
While these are often close insta kills, it’s certainly one of the more time-consuming challenges to date. We recommend going into hardcore playlists just to guarantee a kill if your throw is on target.
If you’d rather fight the undead, it’s your job to kill 50 Sturmkrieger enemies with melee weapon in Vanguard Zombies†
Sturmkriegers are the biggest enemies with miniguns, so getting close can be a challenge. It’s worth damaging these targets with standard rifles first, then rushing in for a final tap with your chosen melee weapon
For now, the Ice Ax Melee Weapon is not available in Warzone. This should change soon, however, as Vanguard exclusives often make their way into the Battle Royale within weeks.
We’ll be sure to keep you posted here if and when that happens. However, the Ice Ax Melee Weapon in Warzone Pacific Season 3 is certain to arrive, so keep your eyes peeled for the coming weeks.
