Infinity Ward added the new crossbow with Call of Duty Modern Warfare update v1.13 yesterday. The update was close to 15GB on consoles but 48GB on PC. Modern Warfare’s new crossbow comes with an in-game challenge that you must complete to get the crossbow. Developers described the update as follows:

Silent and agile, this high-performance crossbow fires 20.0″ bolts with exceptional lethality,” reads the in-game description. “Exclusive customization, distinct functionality, and unique ammunition types put this weapon in a class of its own. Standard 20.0” bolts are recoverable and are undetectable by trophy systems

How to Get Modern Warfare Crossbow

The good news is that players don’t need to pay for the new crossbow, it is completely free to unlock for those who own a copy of Call of Duty Modern Warfare. There is an in-game challenge the player must complete to get the new Modern Warfare challenge Here are the steps you need to take:

  1. Use a stripped-down Marksmen Rifle with only a dot sight (Reflex Optic Sight. You can’t even have skins on it otherwise kills won’t track.
  2. Get 5 Kills in 25 matches, 5 kills per match.
  3. Enjoy your new crossbow

Keep in mind that there three Marksmen Rifles that can be used to complete the crossbow challenge in Call of Duty Modern Warfare; EBR-14, Kar98k, and MK2 Carbine. All of these are powerful enough to get the job done!!

Fastest Games Modes to Crossbow

As explained above, there are two main steps to do this you must take off all attachments from the Marksmen Rifle and play 25 matches, getting 5 kills at least per game. There are a few game modes that will help you do this.

  1. FFA: Free for all is a great game mode that gets you easy and fast kills.
  2. Shoot the Ship: This is a new game mode but great for getting the crossbow kills required.
  3. Shipment TDM: Whether it is TDM or any other game mode on Shipment, you are sure to get a plethora of kills.
