Players in Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone may sometimes be hesitant to use an LMG for their loadouts — with as twitchy and quick these games can be, some LMGs just lug them down. That isn’t the case with the UGM-8, however. Sporting high mobility along with a high fire rate, the UGM-8 might just have what some firepower-hungry players are seeking. Here’s how you can get the UGM-8 in Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer, Zombies, and Warzone as of Season 4.

With the UGM-8 debuting in Season 4 of Vanguard and Warzone, all players need to do is to reach Battle Pass Level 31. As with all new base weapons, this is a free item that will not require you to purchase the premium battle pass. Once Season 4 ends, you will instead unlock the UGM-8 through weapon challenges; this guide will update once those challenges are live.

Because Vanguard multiplayer, Zombies, and Warzone all share the same battle pass progression, your progress across all three modes will add up and build to that coveted level 31. Once you unlock the UGM-8 in one game mode, you will be able to use it in others as well. You can also use Battle Pass Tokens to skip battle pass levels/tiers.

How to use the UGM-8

The UGM-8 has a high fire rate but a low ammo capacity; hence, you can mow down enemies, but you’ll have to reload this gun quite a lot. When building your UGM-8 loadout, be sure to prioritize higher-capacity magazines. Scavenger will also be an extremely useful perk for any loadout you build around this weapon. Ideally, you should be able to run around freely alongside your teammates while also providing useful suppressing fire in objective game types.
