Latest Call of Duty: Warzone the update added new 9 SMG OTs as part of Season 4 reloaded. This weapon is absolutely worth a try, thanks to its high rate of fire, ease of use, and competitive time to kill (TTK). Based on TrueGameData, the OTs 9 has one of the fastest TTKs in the SMG category, outperforming the MP5 (MW) and PPSh-41 by a notable amount. After 10 meters or so, the weapon is a lot less effective, so you’ll only want to limit its use to close-up situations.
With this in mind, it’s a weapon you’ll definitely want to try. Unfortunately, OTs 9 is a difficult one to unlock, although you do have several options for doing so. In this guide, we’ll show you all the ways to unlock a weapon, along with the easiest methods for you to get it. This is how to unlock OTs 9 SMG in Call of Duty: Warzone.
The least expensive and simplest method to unlock OTs 9 is to complete the game within the game Battlefield challenges. To do so, you need to have a double kill with SMG in 15 different matches. From our testing, you can do this in Plunder, regular Verdansk, and even Rebirth Island. Your best bet is to use a high ammo count SMG like the PPSh-41 or Bullfrog and then use your ability to stun the enemies to make sure they’re easier to take down. In Plunder, you will have more success if you go to the Storage Town area to the west of Verdansk.
Alternatively, you can simply play on Rebirth Island. Here, you will have a lot of chances to get dual kills as players tend to act more recklessly in faster paced modes. Neighborhood tents or Control Centers are great spots to destroy the farm. You can exit the match as soon as you get your double kill, so keep that in mind.
Another method to unlock this weapon is to play Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer. Remember, your progress is carried over from Cold War come Battlefield, so you can unlock OTs 9 in one game and have it in the other. To unlock it in Cold War, you need to kill three enemies affected by your tactical gear in 15 games.
For example: stun, smoking or flashing. The easiest way to do this is to throw a decoy grenade into high traffic areas. We love playing on Nuketown ’84. Once there, throw your decoy into a crowded area of the map and track it down with a quick kill. Do this two more times for the match and then do that whole process 15 times total to unlock the weapon. Danger Close Wildcard is great because it allows you to spawn with two pieces of tactical gear. This method is a bit more reliable, but it will still take some time if you are unlucky.
We strongly advise you to avoid the OTs 9 unlock method for Cold War Zombies simply because it is too dependent on chance and goes on forever. With this method, you need to kill 50 Tempests within two seconds of them reappearing after teleporting. If you’ve spent any time with Zombies, you know that Tempests don’t spawn often and aren’t easy to kill. So even if you win three or four in any given match, you still have to put in 30 minutes each run, which would take too long.
The easiest way to unlock OTs 9 is to buy it with COD Points. The Inner Work Pack comes with weapons, enchantments, finishes, icons, and stickers. It will cost you 1,200 COD but this is a surefire way to get new SMGs. This equates to about $10, but you can get enough points by earning them through the match.
The problem is that even if you buy the pack, you still have to use one of the aforementioned methods to actually unlock the weapon and use the attachment. Otherwise all you’ll have is the build that comes with the package, it’s far from perfect (although it’s certainly usable). Remember, you’ll earn weapon XP for OTs 9 when you use it, even if you haven’t officially unlocked it, which is great.
