The Wakizashi is a new melee weapon added in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and you need to complete a challenge to unlock it. Because it's a melee weapon, the associated challenge is melee kills. Unlike the Sledgehammer, however, the Wakizashi has a much more complex set of unlock requirements. Many players won't be able to get this sword for long, but the challenge is certainly manageable if you bring the right loadout and try the right strategy. Here's how to get the Wakizashi in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
How to Get Wakizashi in Black Ops Cold War
To get the Wakizashi, you need to complete two finishing moves in 10 different matches. Getting just one finisher can be tricky, and getting two in the same game will require a bit of strategy and preparation. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to make this challenge easier for yourself.
You should try to play on bigger, slower maps where you can hide and wait for your enemies. You can take the riskier route and try a small map like Nuketown, but you're more likely to get shot while waiting for someone or getting stuck in the Finishing Move animation. There isn't a perfect card to try this on, so stick to cards you're comfortable with.
For your loadout, equip perks like Ninja and Ghost that will help you sneak up on your targets. The last thing you need is someone to see you because they heard your footsteps or saw you in their spy plane. Forward Intel and Tracker are also great perks to use as they give you an idea of where to find potential targets. This challenge will be a long and arduous process, but if you manage to complete it, you will get this impressive sword as a reward.
