How To Unlock The Fastest SMG In Black Ops Cold War Season 1

There are a bunch of weapons available in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War by default. You have your choice of various pistols, assault rifles, shotguns, sniper rifles, and more to take down your opponents in online multiplayer matches. But the guns that shipped with Black Ops Cold War aren't all you have access to. Thanks to various updates to the game, new weapons have become available, like the MAC-10 submachine gun.


According to Dexerto, the MAC-10 is the fastest SMG in the game, serving as a straight-up fire hose for bullets that can help get you out of a close-range jam. But how do you unlock the MAC-10? How do you add this particular gun to your inventory so you can terrorize everyone you come across in your next round of team deathmatch? Below, you'll learn what you need to do in order to get your hands on the MAC-10 and how you can complete the necessary requirements more quickly.

The MAC-10 is part of Black Ops Cold War's Season 1 Battle Pass

If you don't like having to do complicated tasks to unlock Call of Duty weapons, you'll really like the way you can acquire the MAC-10. This SMG is simply part of the Black Ops Cold War Battle Pass for Season 1, which means you only have to earn enough XP to reach the appropriate tier, and then the gun is yours. What tier would that be, you ask? That would be tier 15.


Sure, you'll have to pour some time into the game. If you're not particularly good, that could involve a whole lot of dying to finally gain all the XP you need. Still, reaching a Battle Pass tier is a lot easier than the process behind unlocking the Wakizashi sword. For that, you have to get two finishing move kills in 10 different online matches. When compared to the Wakizashi, the MAC-10 may be a lot easier to get.

How to level up your Battle Pass quickly

That's not to say there aren't some time hacks you can use to make the act of unlocking the MAC-10 a lot faster, though. In fact, throwing some money at the screen can help you either skip the grind entirely or at least make it easier.


As Gaming Intel reported, there is one Battle Pass package available that can give you a 10% XP boost, and another that'll give you that plus 20 tiers unlocked right away. Because the MAC-10 is sitting pretty at tier 15, the latter package would unlock the MAC-10 for you instantly.

If you're a Call of Duty ace, however, you could stay on the free version of the Battle Pass and likely get to tier 15 by simply playing the game. In playlists where kills are king, if you can rack up a healthy amount of eliminations, you should end each match with a decent amount of XP. With that XP piling up, you should reach tier 15 in no time.
