If you’ve been playing Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War lately, you might’ve seen other people using the MAC-10 and may wonder how you can get a MAC-10 of your very own. Is it a weapon you have to purchase? Do you have to meet certain requirements to get it?

You may be surprised to find out that getting the MAC-10 is easier than you might think. To explain further, here’s how to get the MAC-10 in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War! 

How to Get the MAC-10 in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

One of the first questions that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War players have is whether it costs money to get the MAC-10. The answer to this question is no, it doesn’t. The MAC-10 is a free reward for all Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War players.

To get the MAC-10, you’ll need to play matches and earn enough XP to reach Tier 15 in the Season One Battle Pass. Note that you do not need to purchase the Season One Battle Pass to earn the MAC-10 as a reward.

Like the Groza, the MAC-10 is a free Battle Pass reward that you get regardless of whether you’ve purchased the Battle Pass or not. Once you reach Tier 15, you’ll unlock it automatically.

Of course, if you’d like to get other items included in the Season One Battle Pass that aren’t free, you’ll have to purchase the Battle Pass for 1,000 CP or $9.99 (USD)

You can also purchase the Battle Pass Bundle for 2,400 CP or $19.99 (USD) to get the Battle Pass and 20 level skips. The choice is yours, but again, you don’t need to purchase the Battle Pass to get the MAC-10.

All you need to do is play Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and earn enough XP to reach Tier 15 to get the MAC-10 for free.
