Warzone 2 just launched along with Season 01 in COD MW2, and if you're wondering how players are able to shoot colorful tracer bullets, we hurry to explain – these are the tracer rounds that you can unlock if you want to and… have some spare cash.
How to unlock coloured tracer rounds in Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2?
Unfortunately, coloured tracer rounds are not free – at least for the time being. In previous versions of Warzone and Modern Warfare multiplayer mode, we could, at some point, unlock colorful bullets – if we owned a battle pass. In both COD MW2 multiplayer and Warzone 2, you can currently only get tracer rounds by buying for CP in the Call of Duty Store a bundle of operators, who have special weapon blueprints with colorful tracer rounds in their inventory.
The specific operators you have to unlock in the in-game store to get access to tracer rounds in Warzone 2 and COD MW2 are:
- Neymar Jr. Operator Bundle – weapons with tracer rounds The Feared (BAS-P), Longball (SO-14) – yellow trace color.
- Messi Operator Bundle – weapons with tracer rounds: Atomic Flea, Blue Thunder – blue trace color.
- Pogba Operator Bundle – weapons with tracer rounds: Series A (Fennec 45), Counter Attack (HCR 56) – orange trace color.
Each of these operators costs 2400 CP. After the purchase – in addition to the operator associated with football – you will also get a special blueprint weapon. You don't have to use that exact operator for tracer rounds to work – you just need to have their weapons equipped.
In the future, there will probably be other ways to unlock tracer rounds in Warzone 2, and we shall certainly see them in the battle pass.
Are tracer rounds better?
It's difficult to answer whether tracer rounds give you an edge in Warzone 2 and COD MW2. From a theoretical point of view, these bullets deal exactly the same amount of damage as their regular versions, and they also work the exact same way. Remember, however, that the colorful visual effect caused by tracer rounds can indeed blind the enemy.
