To complete two of the Weekly Challenges for Week 4 of MW3, players will need to get a certain number of kills with the Yellow Jacket Akimbo Brace Stock equipped to the WSP Swarm.

Players are eager to know how to complete the Challenge, as it can contribute to unlocking the new TAQ Eradicator weapon reward for completing 5 Challenges in Week 4.

However, many are a little confused about what the Yellow Jacket Brace Akimbo Stock is and how to go about unlocking it.

Fortunately, it’s a lot simpler than it first appears. Below, we go over how to unlock the Yellow Jacket Brace Akimbo Stock and how to use it to complete two of the Weekly Challenges for Week 4 of MW3!

What is the Yellow Jacket Brace Akimbo Stock?

The Yellow Jacket Brace Akimbo Stock is an Aftermarkets Part in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 that allows you to dual-wield a pair of WSP Swarm SMGs.

It’s the same as the WSP Akimbo Brace Stock that players were able to unlock as a reward for completing Weekly Challenges for Week 3 of MW3.

Confusingly, the Challenge in Week 4 refers to the WSP Akimbo Brace Stock as the Yellow Jacket Akimbo Brace Stock, which has left a lot of players a little bewildered. They are the same thing!

Tips & Tricks – Multiplayer Challenges

All Multiplayer Challenges demand that you get Operator kills. This means that you must kill other enemy players for these kills to count – sorry bot hunters!

Follow these tips to get a leg up on some of these Challenges:

  • Getting Headshot and Point Blank kills is fairly self-explanatory
    • Headshots require that you (you guessed it!) shoot and kill enemies with headshots. It requires decent aim and is signified by a graphic that appears on your Crosshair when shooting on target
    • You need to be as close to your enemy as possible when you kill them to get Point Blank kills
      • You must do this with a Recommended SMG to complete the Challenge
  • To get Assault kills, you need to kill enemy players while they are defending objectives
    • You can only do this while playing the Domination, Search and Destroy, Hardpoint, and Control game modes
    • We recommend playing these modes on smaller maps such as Rust, Skidrow, and Shipment
  • To get Akimbo kills, you must first unlock and equip the Akimbo Attachment to a Recommended Weapon that can use Akimbo

Tips & Tricks -Zombies Challenges

  • Head to the higher difficulty Zones and call in Exfils to spawn lots of Zombies
    • There will always be a higher density of Zombies in the more difficult zones in a MWZ match. Spending time in these areas should allow you to rack up Critical, Melee, and SMG kills with ease. Just make sure you are fully equipped and have Pack-A-Punched your weapons!
    • Calling in an Exfil will spawn a horde of Zombies to attack your location until the helicopter leaves the area. It’s another great way to get kills in MWZ
      • If you do this in Zone 1, it’ll be even easier to wipe out the Zombie horde!
  • Do Bounty Contracts
    • Bounty contracts have a chance to spawn three Special Zombie enemy types in all three Zones in a Zombies match. They have a chance to spawn these Special Zombies:
      • Mangler
      • Disciple
      • Mimic
    • Make sure you keep running Bounty Contracts and eliminate these enemies with SMGs to complete the Special Zombie and Mangler kills Challenges!
  • Avoid killing Mercenaries
    • Though not impossible by any means, it’s best to avoid killing Mercenaries if you can. They can be pretty hard to come across and they are notoriously overpowered, meaning that it could take a while before you complete this Challenge. It’s best to choose a different one!

You only have to complete 5 of the above Challenges across Multiplayer and Zombies to acquire the WSP Akimbo Brace Stock.

It’s important to note that most of the above Challenges require that you use a Recommended Weapon.

They are signified by an orange/red banner and flame icon in the Modern Warfare 3 Weapon Select menu:

Recommended Weapons are not set in Modern Warfare 3. You’ll need to look out for the above icon on one of MW3’s weapons to see what is currently in rotation.
