Season 2 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 is here and that means a whole new drop of weapons can be unlocked by players as they try out maps like Museum and Dome again. Without a doubt though, the ISO Hemlock ACR will be the most popular of the bunch.

At the start of the season, we’ll have a brand new assault rifle, shotgun, and crossbow to use in the battle royale and the multiplayer components of MW2. However, you’ll need to unlock each one first, and we’re here to help you get your hands on the brand-new ISO Hemlock ACR.

MW2 & Warzone 2 – How to Unlock the ISO Hemlock ACR

The start date for season 2 is February 15, and that’s when any player can get their hands on the latest slate of weapons. The weapon that this guide is covering isn’t technically called the ACR, but it’s the same gun. To unlock the ISO Hemlock in Modern Warfare 2 or Warzone, you’ll need to take a look at the Battle Pass.

We know from last season that the Battle Pass is based on tokens and works much like the pass from Fortnite. Players can choose which spots in the pass they want to complete, to a degree, and each spot requires about five levels to finish. That means you can unlock the ISO Hemlock in about 25 Battle Pass levels depending on which direction you go. This number can be slightly lower or slightly higher.

Regardless of whether you bought the pass or not, the ISO Hemlock ACR and the other new weapons, like the Kastov shotgun, will be free. So all you need is some XP and a few hours to get the new AR. There will likely be a store bundle to speed the process, however, that’s going to cost you more than XP in MW2 or Warzone 2.

And that’s all. For more on the Call of Duty title, head over to our dedicated Modern Warfare 2 section full of guides, news, updates, and more.
