Warzone's collection of blueprints is forever growing, and forever exciting for fans. One of the more popular weapons in Warzone is the M4A1 Blueprint, Stem the Tide, a weapon from Modern Warfare that made the jump to across to the Battle Royale monolith. Let's take a look at how you can get your hands on one, and the gun's best setup.

The Stem the Tide blueprint is just one of several for the M4A1, and it brings a whole new definition to “blueprint”, with its ugly blue finish. Now, many fans are going to be having our a$$es for saying that, but the real question is: do we give that much of a s**t? After all, we're still going to give you the information you crave, aren't we?

Well, we guess that you don't necessarily know the answer to that rhetorical question just yet. We haven't done all that much except give you unnecessary context, and then making a pretty piss-poor pun (some cheeky alliteration right there). We'll stop wasting your time though. Here's the information...

How to Unlock the Stem the Tide Warzone Blueprint

The Stem the Tide Warzone Blueprint originally became available in Season 4 of Modern Warfare, back when Call of Duty didn't suck as much as a dolphin sucks at putting on a suit and tie. Now, whilst we apologize for that insult — Dolphins are actually pretty smart — this does mean that you can't just earn it through the Season 2 Battle Pass.

Well, this is where those juicy microtransactions come in. If you'd like to indulge in possibly the worst business practice in modern gaming history, then you can pick up the "SERE Kit: Mid-Range" bundle, which contains the blueprint. It will cost you 1200 COD Points, and comes with a couple of other things as well.

Okay, maybe we are being a little bit mean right now. Actually, no, f**k it. Microtransactions are so immoral, we don't care. Yeah this Blueprint comes with a pre-set combination of attachments, and luckily for you, if you have decided to spend the $10+ for this pack, you won't have to suddenly change them...

They are:

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Corvus Custom Marksman
  • Stock: None
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

This is all pretty fabulous if you are into a fast-paced and aggressive style of play. We would suggest keeping these attachments, and maybe adding a stock to increase accuracy and stability. Other than that...enjoy your blue gun, we suppose.

Oh, and the gun's pretty good. It has a speedy reload, has good short-to-mod-range lethality, and can work well as both a primary and a secondary weapon. Have fun.
