New Black Ops Cold War Season 2 Crossbow Found in Warzone

There's a new Crossbow appearing in Warzone, thanks to the upcoming Black Ops Cold War content. Here's where to find it:

Long-term players of Call of Duty: Warzone will know that the game has had a Crossbow in it since launch. However, the Modern Warfare variant is no longer the only Crossbow to appear in Warzone, thanks to a new Cold War update.

It appears that, despite not being available in Black Ops Cold War just yet, the R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow is finally in Warzone. This will allow players to try out the upcoming weapon before it's even available to stick in your loadout.

However, there's only one place to find the R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow in Warzone right now. And from what we can tell, it's a pretty rare tool to come by.

We doubt it can compete with Warzone's most popular meta weapons, but it'll be fun to use regardless.

How to Use the R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow Early in Warzone

The R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow is actually available now for Warzone players, assuming they know where to look.

To get your hands on it, simply check out some of Verdansk's brightly-colored Supply Crates. The orange containers have a small chance of dropping the R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow in Warzone already, but that's not all they offer.

In fact, the upcoming unreleased Modern Warfare CX-9 SMG can be found here too! And it seems that the CX-9 SMG is overpowered, even before its official release.

Therefore, we encourage Warzone fans to be opening up these Supply Crates as often as possible.

It's not clear if this R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow is available in all crates just yet, however. Reddit user StavBerko claims to have found the weapon in a game of Plunder, on top of the Northern bunkers.

Want to know how to unlock the new Black Ops Cold War crossbow on release? We've got you covered.

We're not sure how the older model is supposed to compete with the Modern Warfare variant but Cold War guns are often way too powerful in Warzone.

Black Ops Cold War just got a new worst weapon in the game, let's hope that the upcoming Crossbow isn't as weak. The last thing we need is another disappointing Season 2 addition.

And in case you missed it, we just got our first leaked image of the new Warzone map!
