How to Unlock XRK Stalker

The XRK Stalker is available when players complete tier A4 of the Season 1 Battlepass in CoD: Warzone 2.0, but that doesn’t ensure everything connected to the weapon is unlocked. To unlock some of the better attachments for the gun, players must level up their rank with the XRK Stalker as players would with any other weapon in Call of Duty games.

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