Often displayed by Operator, Kitsune, the TEC-9 SMG is an extremely close quarters demon, much akin to the Nail Gun, although with slightly more range and a quicker fire rate. Unless you unlocked the TEC-9 when working through the Season Five battle pass, you'll need to complete a challenge to unlock it now. Using SMGs, get two headshot kills in 15 different completed matches. This might take a while in Warzone's main battle royale mode, so jump into Rebirth Island or Plunder to wrack up some kills. If you own Cold War, however, you can complete the challenge in its multiplayer, which will be far quicker.

  • Secondary: EM2 assault rifle 
  • Equipment: Throwing Knife and Stun Grenade

A quick throwing knife will help with this too, giving ample opportunity to thirst your kills before reloading. Combat Scout is the new must-have on your loadout, pretty much giving you wallhacks, acting as a snapshot grenade on each bullet.
