Vanguard and Warzone players were excited to get their hands on Season 2’s Ice Axe melee weapon that doubled up as a throwable, but with only a few days left until Season 2, it’s still not arrived.

Every Call of Duty season comes with more weapons for both multiplayer and Warzone. Season 2’s roadmap revealed that the KG M40, Whitley LMG, Armaguerra, and Ice Axe would arrive during the season.

However, one of these weapons isn’t like the others. Even though Vanguard and Warzone Pacific Season 3 arrives on April 27 bringing entirely new weapons, there’s still no sign of the Ice Axe melee weapon.

The Ice Axe was set to be a unique weapon in Vanguard and Warzone, where it could be used both as a melee weapon and a throwable. After using it in hand-to-hand combat, you could lob it at a far-off foe for a quick kill.

Activision revealed a ton of details about Vanguard and Warzone Pacific Season 2 before it arrived, announcing that there would be four new weapons arriving. The KG M40 and Whitley were part of the Battle Pass, and the Armaguerra and Ice Axe would arrive “in-season.”

The Armaguerra arrived with Season 2 Reloaded, but the Ice Axe is nowhere to be seen. Of course, it could still be added in the final few days of Season 2, but players expected it to have arrived much earlier in the season.

Interestingly, the Ice Axe does appear in Vanguard’s Combat Record alongside the Skall Crusher Axe. This Viking-themed axe appeared in Private Matches and Ranked Play for a few weeks and could also be used as both a melee and throwable. It’s since been removed but can be viewed in the Weapon Select screen, it’s just locked without a challenge.

There’s no guarantee that the Ice Axe will arrive in Vanguard and Warzone ahead of Season 3, but we’ll just need to wait and see.
