The new CARV.2 is set to break the Warzone and BOCW meta wide open. The 3-round burst tactical rifle is effective to long-range and could easily replace the FR5.56, the AUG and the M16. Here's how to get your hands on one.
The CARV.2 was available in Warzone as a rare pickup from orange loot boxes in the past week, and people started getting excited when they saw how strong the weapon was. But now, with the weekly playlist update, the weapon is available for you to unlock and customize with the Gunsmith. There are three ways to unlock the CARV.2 - buy it, unlock it through the BOCW multiplayer, or unlock it in Warzone.

Buying The CARV.2 Through The Store
The CARV.2 can be bought as part of the Plastik Prototype bundle, and the blueprint is called 'Konsole'. The Plastik Prototype bundle is worth 1200 CP (around $12) and comes with three other cosmetic items and a 1 tier skip.
The Konsole blueprint is not the most out-there of aesthetics, but the attachment choice is decent:
- Muzzle: Agency Silencer
- Barrel: 19.4 Rapid Fire
- Optic: Sillix Holoscout
- Stock: Tactical Stock
- Ammunition: 45 Rnd Speed Mag
This is a fairly strong blueprint, definitely optimized more for Warzone than BOCW. The Sillix Holoscout sight picture isn't for everyone, nor is a suppressor necessary for multiplayer. That being said, the extended magazine is always a must, and the stock is significantly helpful in keeping follow-up bursts on target. The 19.4 Rapid Fire barrel effectively increases the fire rate between 10-14% on other weapons, but how that interacts with burst fire is far less reliable, this could be another attachment you find yourself swapping out.
How To Unlock The CARV.2 In BOCW Multiplayer?
The CARV.2 requires you to 'kill 2 or more players in 10 different matches'. Now, this seems simple enough, and if you're grinding on BOCW it should be. Even if you don't have the best gun skill in the world, don't worry - we've got your back.
First things first, get yourself an M16 class, this is available right off the bat, so you will be able to get it even if you bought the game yesterday (if you have the AUG unlocked even better - take that). Then, depending on your available attachments, you're going to want to spec the gun for quick handling, sacrificing range where you need to.
Right, now you've got a tactical rifle that can still perform fairly well at close range encounters. For a playlist, go ahead and fire up Hardpoint. Hardpoint is basically King of the Hill, run to an area and try to stay there while the other team does the same. This will have lots of players all closing in on the same location.
The trick is to find a good spot to hold, one that's not on the actual Hardpoint location but faces the approach to the Hardpoint. Players will be running for the objective, usually together, and without paying attention. This should get you the CARV.2 in no time.
How To Unlock The CARV.2 In Warzone?
Unlocking the CARV.2 in Warzone is a lot harder, unfortunately, but it can still be done with minimal grinding if you follow our tips.
Don't even think about Battle Royale, this is a Plunder job. Grab the class described above (a tactical rifle spec'd for quicker, shorter-ranged engagements) and drop in on Superstore. The roof of Superstore is reliably busy each game and this will be your best opportunity to nab two kills in quick succession. Depending on how impatient (/toxic) you're feeling, this is quite an effective start to just run, quit out and re-run, but that's for you the reader to decide.
From the roof of Superstore, you're going to want to head down, but avoid plundering, and instead focus on camping out at the helipads where players bank cash. They usually approach in teams, often panicked, and should make for easy pickings. All of this is much easier if you have a team willing to help you in Warzone, they can crack the armor while you clean up. Follow these steps, and the CARV.2 will be yours.
We hope these methods can make unlocking the CARV.2 a little less exasperating, but get your hands on it quick to give yourself the edge. Keep up to speed with all the latest at EarlyGame, and if you want to join the conversation follow us on Facebook or Twitter!
