The OTs 9 is a new SMG in Black Ops Cold War Season 4, and you can unlock it by completing a special challenge. However, players are complaining that the required task is too frustrating.

The Season 4 roadmap for Black Ops Cold War revealed some exciting new content for the game, like the highly-anticipated Mauer der Toten map. One of the new Season 4 weapons that you can get is the OTs 9 SMG.

You can unlock it in both Multiplayer and Zombies modes by completing two different challenges. However, this isn’t sitting well with players, as some consider the challenge to be more frustrating than it is enjoyable.

Firing the OTs 9 SMG in Black Ops Cold War

Reddit user tubaca34 vented their frustration with the unlock challenge in the Black Ops Cold War subreddit. For Multiplayer, you can get the weapon by killing 2 or more players rapidly in 15 different completed matches with SMGs.

Zombies mode requires you to use an SMG to kill 50 Tempests within 2 seconds of them reappearing after teleporting. Both of these tasks take a while to complete, and the alternative is to spend 1,200 COD Points on the Inside Job bundle in the in-game store.

Some players are so frustrated by the challenge that they’ll resort to purchasing the bundle just so that they can unlock the Blueprint for the weapon. You can check out our COD Points guide to learn how to get them.

A few users commented that you can complete these challenges much quicker by making use of decoy grenades. “Run danger close + decoys,” wrote one user. “It’s similar to getting detected kills with the Field Mic.”

So it’s worth trying out that tactic if the challenge seems too frustrating. The official description of the OTs 9 states that it boasts “great stopping power and a phenomenal rate of fire” and is only “hindered only by its low magazine capacity of 20 rounds.”
