Here's How You Get The Nail Gun In Warzone

Raven Software

It’s interesting in which direction Raven Software is taking Verdansk. Time travel, zombies, and inter-dimensional doors, we’re further and further away from a military simulation and the creative freedom this provides to developers, as we have seen in games like Fortnite, allows for fun and playful feature introductions outside the confines of commonly established themes. With season 4, not only did Raven Software introduce a Nail Gun, they made it one of the best short-range weapons right from the get-go, three shooting people and not even requiring much grind to be at full power. With no attachments for the Nail Gun, all you need to get going is to unlock the gun. But how does that work?

How To Unlock Nail Gun

In order to unlock the Nail Gun, you will have to get five eliminations in 15 matches with a Special Weapon. The matches do not need to be consecutive, which helps a lot, but it’s still a bit of a grind. Why you might be having issues finding out what Special Weapons are is because they are a weapon classification that you only see in Cold War, with no such category existing in Warzone direct. So in order to unlock the Nail Gun, you will have to kill these opponents with either an M79 Grenade Launcher, a Crossbow, a Ballistic Knife, or a Nail Gun. 

The fact that the Nail Gun can grind itself is useful, as you likely want to get those kills in through Plunder, and if you meet an opponent with a Nail Gun, picking the gun up will allow you to grind through those five very quickly. Keep in mind that you do not need to wait until the end of the match but can leave as soon as you got your five, which you can check by looking at your progress in your loadout and search for the Nail Gun at the very bottom of the SMG tab. The progress bar should show up in the middle of the screen when selecting the weapon and should look like this.

If you’re like us, the only weapon you will have unlocked is the M79, so you will need a strategy to farm the Nail Gun with it. The best way to do so is to queue into Plunder and drop over Nakatomi Plaza or Storage Town. One kill is almost guaranteed if you spot someone mid-air and fire your grenade launcher close to the target. After that, it’s down to direct hits which you will eventually get the hang of.

The time investment differs depending on your skill level. If you can’t be bothered to put about two hours aside, you could also buy the gun blueprint outright. Whether or not it’s worth it is up to you, as the gun seems to have dropped slightly out of meta already. However, there are loadouts that still make it work. 

Best Nail Gun Loadout

With the Nail Gun, you don’t need to worry about attachments and all you’ll need is a weapon to go alongside it. Here, you have a wide range of choices, though the FARA 83 and the C58 are your best bet. Sniper loadouts like the Kar98k or the Swiss K31 can work too, but it will require you to be quick on the headshot snipes on mid-range with the Nail Gun lacking considerably here. 

In terms of Perks, you are well served with your usual loadout preferences. You can’t go wrong with Double Time, Overkill, and a Perk 3 slot choice like Amped or Battle Hardened. Keep in mind that the Nail Gun does count as an SMG and in order to have a main weapon, you will need Overkill, which will keep you from running Ghost on only one loadout.

Currently still playable, we advise abusing the Nail Gun while it’s still in its current state. It’s likely to be outpaced by balance changes eventually, in order to bring new close-quarter weapons to the front and keep the grinding wheel turning.
