How to Unlock Hammer & Sickle in BOCW and Warzone

Players can unlock the Battle Axe at the start of Season 6 but unlocking the Hammer & Sickle can take some time and effort. After the introduction of The Haunting event on October 19th, players had the opportunity to unlock this dual-wielded melee weapon.

There are two main ways in which you can unlock this weapon, let’s take a look at how you can do it right now.

Get Melee Kills and Tomahawk Kills

The first way in which you can unlock this deadly combo is to complete its challenge. You have to get 15 melee kills followed up with a tomahawk or a throwing knife kill. If you only get melee kills or tomahawk kills, that will not count. What we suggest to make this process easier is to get one melee kill as soon as you can and later in the game use your tomahawk or throwing knife. Just make sure to equip one of those two things in your lethal inventory slot.

Repeat this process in 15 games and you will finally unlock the coveted Hammer & Sickle. This can be quite time-consuming and take a lot of effort but trust us, it’s worth it.

Split Personality Bundle

You can purchase the Split Personality Bundle in the COD store. This will allow you to level up the battle pass and unlock this weapon with a unique skin as well. Alternatively, you can spend 1800 CP to skip all the tiers and unlock everything immediately. Not only are you getting the Agony & Ecstasy skin for the melee weapon, but you also get the Crusher, Slasher, and many more cosmetic items.


Hopefully, this guide showed you how to unlock the Hammer & Sickle in BOCW and Warzone. It is an extremely fun weapon to use so make sure you unlock it as soon as you can. For more guides, check out our Guides Section.
