The MAC-10 SMG is one of the brand-new weapons being introduced in Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War’s Season 1. Alongside a new Warzone map, multiplayer maps and modes, Zombies modes and new challenges for players to grind out, the MAC-10 offers players what is essentially the MP7 of the Cold War world. In this guide, we’ll run you through how to get the MAC-10 SMG in Black Ops Cold War.
The MAC-10 SMG is a fully-automatic submachine gun. It has the fastest fire rate in the SMG class, but that comes at the cost of a higher vertical recoil. The other trade-off here comes from improved handling speeds, but at the expense of reduced damage.
If you can stick with the weapon for long enough, however, you’ll unlock a number of weapon attachments that can help offset these downsides.
How to Unlock MAC-10 in Black Ops Cold War
As one of the two brand-new weapons in Season 1, the MAC-10 can be unlocked by reaching Tier 15 on the Battle Pass. The good news is that the MAC-10 can be unlocked regardless of whether you buy the Premium Battle Pass, or just stick with the free one.
That being said, if you play a lot of Black Ops Cold War, we’d recommend getting the Battle Pass as you’ll unlock it far faster. The Season 1 Battle Pass is available for 1,000 CP, or you can spend 2,400 CP to get 20 Tiers for free, unlocking the MAC-10 immediately.
You’ll also be able to earn your CP back if you grind out enough Tiers on the Battle Pass, meaning you won’t have to cough up real-life money for the Season 2 Battle Pass in the future.
