This is welcome news for Zombies fans. Currently, you're only able to unlock Black Ops Cold War weapons via challenges in Multiplayer.

We do not yet know how tough the Zombies weapon unlock challenges will be, although Treyarch revealed the challenge to unlock the R1 Shadowhunter (using a special weapon that has been Pack-A-Punched at least twice, kill 50 special enemies).

Season three of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is about to kick off. Here's everything you need to know.
