With its final seasonal update, Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone introduced several new weapons, one of which is the EX1 rifle. It is a highly customizable, long-range rifle that uses energy instead of traditional bullets. The rifle is from Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and is available in Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone; here is how you can unlock it.

There are a few ways you can unlock the EX1 rifle, with one of the ways costing you. The first and best way to get the EX1 rifle is through weapon challenges:

  • Multiplayer/Warzone: Get 15 Hipfire Kills while moving.
  • Zombies: Get 100 Eliminations using Assault Rifles bought off walls.

The second way you can get the EX1 rifle is to purchase a weapon Bundle and instantly get access to the rifle without even playing the game, along with the other benefits. The 8-Bit Warfare Tracer Pack Mastercraft Bundle includes the Noclip” EX1 Mastercraft Blueprint, amongst other goodies.

The EX1 is one of many anachronisms in the World War II setting of Call of Duty: Vanguard — the final season of that game was chock full of laser blasts. Expect the EX1 to behave very differently, from how it handles to how it sounds.
