The HRM-9 SMG is one of two new weapons that arrived in Warzone and MW3 Season 1 Reloaded. Here’s how to unlock the HRM-9 SMG in MW3 and Warzone.

In total, Season 1 of Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone brings five new weapons to the game. At the very start of Season 1 players received the RAM-7, XRK Stalker, and the Stormender. Each weapon has brought something new to the table and the Season 1 Reloaded update further expands the weapon arsenal.

The HRM-9 is a brand-new SMG for MW3 and Warzone, but it’s hidden in the Battle Pass, so you might be wondering how to get it.

Here’s how to unlock the HRM-9 SMG in Warzone and MW3.

How to unlock HRM-9 in Warzone & Modern Warfare 3

MW3 and Warzone’s HRM-9 SMG can be unlocked through the Classified Sector A21 of the Battle Pass, meaning you’ll have to complete the Sector to unlock the weapon. You can also find and exfil with the weapon in Zombies to unlock it.

To complete the Classified A21 Sector of the Battle Pass and claim the HRM-9 SMG, you’ll need to complete some challenges. The final challenge for the HRM-9 will only unlock after completing all of the previous challenges below.

If you’re wondering what the HRM-9 brings to the table, the devs describe it as a “light yet stable 9mm submachine gun for close-quarters combat and putting down enemies quickly.”

The weapon boasts a blistering fire rate alongside top-tier mobility. It’ll be interesting to see where the new SMG fits into the MW3 and Warzone meta once players get time with the Season 1 Reloaded update, as it has the potential to surpass the WSP Swarm that has dominated the battle royale’s close-range meta since the start of Season 1.
