Unlocking the MX Guardian Shotgun in Season 4 Reloaded of MW2 and Warzone 2

Season 4 Reloaded of Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 is here, introducing a new, tantalizing piece of equipment – the MX Guardian Shotgun. This article provides a comprehensive guide on how to unlock this new weapon, which is sure to add a dose of excitement to your gaming experience.

A New Addition – MX Guardian Shotgun

Season 4 Reloaded has brought a plethora of new content to both Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2. Among the new items is the MX Guardian Shotgun, a fully automatic 12-gauge weapon that promises to redefine your close-combat experience. With its three rotating magazine tubes and a semi-automatic mode, it is not just a shotgun, but a game-changer.

Unlocking the MX Guardian

The MX Guardian is not readily available for players. To unlock this powerful tool, players need to traverse the unexplored path of the “Classified” sector in the Battle Pass of Season 4 Reloaded. The Classified sector, a new addition in this season, requires players to complete a series of challenges rather than unlocking it with any Battle Pass tokens.

Battle Pass Classified Sector – The Gateway to MX Guardian

The Classified sector is accessible only after unlocking one of the adjacent sectors, namely D2, D3, D4, D5, D6, or D7. Once you gain access to this sector, you must complete a set of challenges to unlock the MX Guardian. These challenges, although not overly complicated, require a certain level of proficiency with shotguns.

The Challenges – Your Key to MX Guardian

Below are the challenges that you need to overcome to get your hands on the MX Guardian:

  • Dependable Emblem: Accumulate 10 ADS operator kills using shotguns.
  • Gunfire Calling Card: Secure 10 hipfire operator kills using shotguns.
  • Fanning Hutch Loading Screen: Achieve 10 headshot operator kills using shotguns.
  • 1-Hour Double Weapon XP Token: Get 10 one-shot operator kills using shotguns.
  • MX Guardian: Complete all sector rewards.

Completing these challenges not only unlocks the MX Guardian but also prepares you to master this new weapon, enhancing your overall gaming experience.

The MX Guardian’s Game-Changing Features

The MX Guardian is designed to disrupt the existing meta, especially in close-range combat. It has the potential to give a tough competition to KV Broadside, the currently dominant shotgun in the game. Moreover, it brings a new purpose to the less-played weapon category of battle rifles, as they can serve as an effective counter to the MX Guardian.

Where to Use MX Guardian?

The MX Guardian is an excellent choice for small maps in multiplayer mode. In Warzone 2 and DMZ, it can be highly effective for clearing buildings. With two players in your squad equipped with MX Guardian Shotguns, you can storm a building from two sides and quickly gain control.


Unlocking the MX Guardian in MW2 and Warzone 2 requires strategic planning and execution of the challenges in the classified sector of the Battle Pass. Although it might seem intimidating at first, with time and practice, you can add this powerful weapon to your arsenal and dominate the battlefield.
