A few days ago, the R1 Shadowhunter crossbow was made available in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. This was accidental. It wasn’t suppose to actually release until later this season, but Activision has already removed the weapon from both games. They have also issued refunds to those who purchased it during its brief period of availability.
Activision shared the news on its official Twitter support page, saying the bundle that included the weapon will return at “a later date,” along with a correlated challenge. When this will be, isn’t clear, but it’s entirely possible this went up way before it was meant too.
Obviously, this weapon is supposed to be used for stealth, as it fires silent crossbow bolts without alerting others to your presence. During the initial accidental release, getting the weapon in Cold War required a player to get a series of One Shot, One Kills in 15 games. If you’ve already been playing the game the game for months, this should be fairly easy to pull off once it the weapon comes back.
