At the start of Season 6, players in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone can unlock three new weapons for free, including the powerful Battle Axe.

The loot pools in CoD: Warzone and Black Ops Cold War don’t change too often. However, the developers of both games make sure to add new weapons periodically. This is especially true for the start of a new season.

The weapons added at the beginning of a season can be hit or miss. They can be meta-defining weapons like the EM2. Or they can be gimmicky like the akimbo Marshal shotguns.
