CoD: Black Ops Cold War’s R1 crossbow has a real release date this time

After an unintended early release recently, Call of Task: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone’s R1 Shadowhunter crossbow will formally be launched on March 24, Treyarch revealed Monday.

Treyarch is offering gamers 2 various methods to open the R1 Shadowhunter once the weapon remains in the video game. The very first approach includes finishing an obstacle by utilizing a weapon with no accessories to get 3 “One Shot, One Kill” medals in 15 various matches. If gamers wish to open the R1 by means of that obstacle, they’ll initially require to open the obstacle itself, however Treyarch hasn’t exposed how that works right now. The other, much faster method is to simply purchase the “Archaic Range” Bundle from the in-game store.

The Archaic Range Bundle includes the “Lancehead” weapon blueprint, which outfits the Shadowhunter with a few special attachments, the “Medieval Archer” animated emblem, the “Olde Time Sniper” sticker, and the “Stolen Idol” charm.

The R1 is one of the new weapons for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone season 2. Treyarch accidentally released the crossbow early last week and pulled the weapon a few hours later. Fortunately, anyone who bought the weapon from the in-game store had their money refunded but, according to Treyarch, gamers that made progress on the open obstacle had their development reset.
