How to Get the Shillelagh Sniper in COD Warzone 2

You'll need the luck of the Irish.

We all knew that a Saint Patrick’s Day event was on the way in Call of Duty: Warzone 2 after the announcement in the Season 2 Reloaded blog post, but they had another surprise for us. Players have stumbled on the Shillelagh sniper, which is an event-themed rifle with one-shot damage capability.

There is only one of these weapons in each COD Warzone 2 match, and you’ll know when you see it because it’s covered in bright gold and green for the event. It won’t be easy to steal, so our guide is here to outline exactly how to pick up the Shillelagh Sniper in Al Mazrah.

COD Warzone 2 – How to Get the Shillelagh Sniper

The new event weapon is tied to the giant rainbow that you’ll see in the sky when you start a match. This only appears on Al Mazrah, but that also means you can find the rainbow in the DMZ as well. When any Warzone 2 match begins, the direction of the rainbow will change, so every start is different.

Just like Saint Patrick’s Day has always had it, you can expect to find some gold at the end of the rainbow. If you manage to get to the right location, you’ll find some event-themed crates full of cash, weapons, and of course, the Shillelagh Sniper. It’s hard to miss the glimmer from the weapon, so don’t worry about it blending in.
