The new Streetsweeper automatic shotgun is now available in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War. We show you how to unlock it.

At the launch of Black Ops Cold War Season 1 it was announced that weapons will be added to the game over the course of the season. One of them is the new fully automatic shotgun Streetsweeper. Some players were able to enjoy the new shottie prematurely thanks to a bug, but now everything is official.

Unlocking the Streetsweeper

Just like in Modern Warfare, weapons that are added to the game during a season and cannot be unlocked via the Battle Pass must be earned through challenges. In the case of the Streetsweeper, you must complete the following challenge:

  • Achieve 3 kills with shotguns in 15 different matches without dying.

This is a shotgun, so you should be focusing on the smaller maps for this one. The currently running Raid & Crossroads Strike 24/7 playlist and Nuketown, as well as the firefight maps are particularly suitable for our purposes.

If you don't own Black Ops Cold War and want to unlock the Streetsweeper in Warzone, you'll have a slightly harder time. The required kills must be made with Black Ops Cold War shotgun: the Hauer 77 or the Gallo SA12. Mowing down enemies with the R9-0 is not a possibility.

If the challenge feels too annoying, you can simply buy the Streetsweeper as part of a bundle in the store.

The Shock Value Bundle is available in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War for 1200 CP and includes the Surge Protector blueprint for the Streetsweeper, a weapon tag, an emblem and a sticker.
