How to unlock the Lockwood MK2 in Warzone 2.0

The Lockwood MK2 is available after reaching player level 28 in CoD: Warzone 2 for the first time, but that doesn’t ensure everything connected to the weapon is unlocked. Players will have to level up their rank with the Lockwood MK2 as they would with any other gun in Call of Duty games to unlock some of the better attachments for the weapon.

To rank up Lockwood MK2, keep playing Warzone 2.0 when it is equipped. While the Lockwood MK2 will always gain a constant flow of XP while equipped, players can speed up the process by using it to slay enemies, take down killstreaks, and complete contracts. And they will gain even more weapon XP for the Lockwood MK2 if they activate a weapon-oriented XP token before a Warzone 2 match begins.
