The crossbow has been one of the most beloved weapons in the Call of Duty series, and it has finally returned with plenty of added benefits in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0. However, unlike guns in the Battle Pass, the bow requires that you do much more than just leveling up to own it. Here is how to get the Crossbow in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0.

How to get the Crossbow in MW2 and Warzone 2.0

No matter which season you are playing in, there are three methods of unlocking the Crossbow. For one, players can complete its dedicated weapon challenge by getting 50 longshot kills using marksman rifles in either the multiplayer or battle royale. You can also track how close you are to achieving this milestone by simply going to the Crossbow in the Loadouts menu and finding the progress bar underneath it. However, a faster method for owning the weapon is by picking it up in any of DMZ’s locations and reaching an exfil point on the map.

The Crossbow is considered one of the strongest stealth weapons in both games. Those wielding the tool will come to find that firing its arrows is a completely silent process, and these arrows are even undetectable by trophy systems. Additionally, this is not the only weapon from Season 2 with a unique advantage. An ISO Hemlock assault rifle has debuted with two different compatible sets of ammo, with it being able to shoot both the 5.56 and .300 BLK ammo types.
