The Scythe is the most powerful melee weapon in Call of Duty: Cold War and Warzone and has enough speed to defeat nearby enemies in under a second. However, the Scythe is a post-launch item and you will need to complete one of two challenges to obtain it.
In Multiplayer and Warzone, how do you get the Scythe?
While Ninja or Dead Silence is active, the Scythe can be obtained in Black Ops Cold Wars Multiplayer or Warzone. The ability you apply will depend on the game you are playing. In Cold War, players will likely prefer to complete this challenge in the first map that invokes close-range combat.
Cold War Zombies Using the Scythe in Black Ops
While in Cold Wars Zombies mode, you will see a different challenge, though finishing it will unlock the Scythe in the Multiplayer and Warzone. The ability-up will be given to you at random times while in any map and allows you to eliminate all zombies with just a single hit.
The best Zombies weapons include the gallo SA12 shotgun and the RPG-7 launcher, both of which are capable of achieving elimination with just one shot.
