Learning how to unlock the HRM-9 in MW3 and Season 1 Reloaded of Warzone is essential for anyone who wants to stay one step ahead of the competition and begin experimenting with the new weapon as soon as possible.

The SMG boasts impressive mobility stats while also being lightweight and stable at close quarters, meaning it's probably going to be suited to aggressive competitors. If that wasn't enough, its accuracy means landing shots on target should rarely be a problem, so if you struggle with recoil, the HRM-9 could be the perfect fit.

Of course, before you can start dominating with the new SMG, you'll need to know how to get the gun in-game - so here's a full rundown.

How to get HRM-9 in MW3 & Warzone

To unlock the HRM-9 in Warzone & MW3, players will need to complete an Armory Unlock challenge. This shouldn't take you too long, but if you want to speed up the process, we recommend completing the objectives in multiplayer.
