How to Unlock the Sledgehammer Melee Weapon in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone

Complete an in-game challenge to unlock the Sledgehammer in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone!

Alongside the activation of Double XP across Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer and Zombies, Treyarch has released an all-new Operator and Melee Weapon for players to obtain for use in both titles! If the other Season One weapons aren't what you're looking for, or you'd like to get your hands on the latest content, be sure to complete this simple challenge to gain access to the new weapon.

This marks the release of the third new weapon in Season One, with at least two more that are expected to release later in the Season.


Its name is derived from the word "slægan," meaning "to strike violently."  Distributes a large amount of force over a small area.  Repurposed to demolish your enemies instead of dry wall.

Subtle nod to Call of Duty developer Sledgehammer Games or not, the all-new Sledgehammer melee weapon is now available in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.

If you'd prefer to skip the line and immediately unlock the Sledgehammer you can purchase a Bundle from the Store which contains a Blueprint for this weapon. Upon doing so, you will be granted immediate access to the base variant.

At the time of release, the only Bundle containing a Sledgehammer Blueprint is the Tracer Pack: Bulldozer Operator Bundle for 2,400 COD Points.
