Season 4 brings the UGM-8 LMG alongside the dual-wielded Marco 5 SMG. Here’s how to get your hands on the highly mobile UGM-8 in Warzone and Vanguard Season 4.

How to unlock UGM-8 LMG in Warzone & Vanguard

Warzone and Vanguard’s newest LMG, the UGM-8, is unlocked at tier 31 of the Season 4 Battle Pass. This is considered a free tier meaning all players will unlock the UGM-8 at tier 31 of the Season 4 Battle Pass.

Once you’ve got your hands on the UGM-8, you can use the upcoming Double XP event to fly through weapon levels and unlock all the attachments. But if you don’t manage to unlock the UGM-8 during Season 4, it’ll be available in Season 5 through an LMG-based unlock challenge.

The UGM is described as a “High fire rate, mobile LMG” that allows players to “keep pace with their teammates while offering suppressive fire.” LMGs have dominated Warzone in the past, so we’ll need to wait and see how it shakes up the meta.

However, the devs warned that the UGM’s high fire rate means that it’ll burn through ammo quick, so they recommend using Fully Loaded or the Scavenger Perk to keep topped up.
