If you’re looking to unlock the new XRK Stalker in Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone, then your search ends here. The XRK Stalker is a sniper rifle that deals massive damage and is highly customizable to support multiple playstyles.

The XRK Stalker sniper rifle can be unlocked for free by completing Sector A4 of the Warzone and MW3 Season 1 Battle Pass. Since it’s a free-to-unlock weapon, you don’t have to buy the premium variant of the battle pass, but you'll need to farm a ton of battle pass XP.

Playing matches, completing daily and weekly missions, and using Double XP tokens are some of the most reliable ways to quickly earn battle pass XP. If farming XP isn’t for you, you can also purchase the premium variant of Warzone and MW3 Season 1 battle pass, which may allow you to unlock the XRK Stalker sniper rifle instantly. 

By spending $29.99, you can access the premium BlackCell Battle Pass for the upcoming MW3 Season 1. At the same time, the regular version of Battle Pass is priced at $9.99 or 1100 Call of Duty Points (CP), but you can always upgrade to the BlackCell version later in the season if you want.

When does XRK Stalker release in MW3 and Warzone?

The XRK Stalker will be released as a part of the Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone Season 1 update on December 6 at 9 AM PT. 

Here’s the weapon’s description according to the official Call of Duty blog:

“Stalk your prey and lay them out with this tactical sniper rifle chambered in .50 Cal. For one-hit eliminations, look no further. The XRK Stalker Sniper Rifle deals massive damage and is highly customizable to support multiple playstyles. Enhance the weapon’s velocity and stability and strike from the shadows or improve its handling capabilities to become a quick-scoping menace.”
