Unlocking Nail Gun in COD Warzone
There are two ways you can unlock the Nail Gun in Warzone.
Unlocking by Completing Task
In Warzone, there are few conditions you must meet before you can unlock new guns. The same applies to the Nail Gun. You can unlock Nail Gun simply by playing the game. But in 15 different matches, you must get at least five kills. It does not have to be in consecutive order and you can complete it taking as much time as you want.
Another condition is that you have to get these kills with Special Weapons. This is where things get confusing. Warzone does not show you which weapons are special. You can see special weapons in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War but not in Warzone.
So, if you don’t have Cold War, you may not know about the special weapons. But don’t worry, here is the list of special weapons in Warzone.
- Nail Gun
- R1 Shadowhunter
- M79 Grenade Launcher
- Ballistic Knife
So, equip one of these special weapons and complete the tasks to gain access to the Nail Gun. This is the faster of the two methods for unlocking the gun, but it can take a long time. Nowadays, Warzone is extremely competitive, and obtaining five kills in a single match can be difficult.
To combat this, Plunder mode is recommended. Even if you die, you can quickly revive and get five kills in a match playing this mode.

This is the quickest way to obtain the Nail Gun and is not recommended for new players. To obtain the blueprint for the Nail Gun, you must invest your valuable COD Points. Purchase the Puncture Wound Blueprint from the store for 1,000 COD Points to unlock the Nail Gun.
