The May 6 Cold War update brought the UGR SMG into battle in both Warzone and BOCW. This powerful machine works very differently from its other submachine gun counterparts, so here’s how you can unlock it and try it out for yourself.
Even after the Season 3 update (aka Classified Arms), Warzone’s SMG meta hasn’t seen that much of a stir.
Both the Owen Gun and the MP40 still rule the rest of their competitors and every other weapon is trying to catch up.
No good answer has come so far, but the UGR could make a run for the throne.
How to Unlock the UGR in Warzone & Cold War
Like the Nikita AVT and M1916 in Season 3, this new sub is unlocked by completing an in-game challenge.
This time, that means adding up kills against players revealed via Spy Plane, UAV or Field Mic in 15 different matches.
Players can also purchase the Lazar Operator Bundle to unlock the Dealmaker UGR Blueprint without having to complete any challenges.
In terms of stats, this new addition is quite unique. Despite being a fully automatic weapon, it comes closer to the power of the KSP 45 than any other weapon in its class.
The tradeoff comes in the form of rate of fire, though, so expect it to be used more like the long-range Milano builds popular on Rebirth Island.
There’s no way of knowing if this will be the gun to shake things up, but more options means more opportunities for a new king.
