Modern Warfare 3 has a wide range of weapons, and to add to the huge arsenal, the devs are introducing the Stormender Launcher with Season 1 in MW3 and Warzone, so here’s how you can unlock the Stormender.

Modern Warfare 3 boasts 114 weapons, with 37 of them being new weapons alongside a host of MW2 guns, thanks to the Carry Forward feature. While Assault Rifles are dominating the meta ahead of Season 1, a few Battle Rifles like the BAS-B, are also emerging as powerful picks.

However, Activision confirmed that a brand-new Stormender Launcher will be making its way into MW3 and Warzone, with the launch of Season 1. Launchers were popular in the early Call of Duty titles, allowing you to deal a ton of damage at a moment’s notice.

So, if you’re looking to run the Stormender in your MW3 and Warzone Season 1 matches, here’s how you can unlock it.

How to unlock MW3 & Warzone Stormender Launcher

To unlock the Stormender in MW3 and Warzone, you’ll have to head to Sector A12 on Season 1’s Battle Pass. The Stormender will come with unlimited recharging ammo that allows you to take down Killstreaks, disable Equipment, and more, using its lock-on capabilities.

However, keep in mind that the Stormender fires a localized EMP after a slight delay, so it’ll be best put to use in close ranges. While this weapon is one of a kind, it’ll dish out very little damage to the Operators.

Whether the Stormender joins the meta-discussion remains to be seen but we recommend trying this weapon as a secondary in your loadouts for MW3 and Warzone matches.

So there you have it! That’s all you need to know to unlock the Stormender Launcher in MW3 and Warzone Season 1. For more content on the Call of Duty titles, make sure to check out the following:
