We are getting a new SMG with the new season 3 reloaded update! According to the recent blog post from Raven, it should be able to compete with the reigning Owen Gun!
Would be nice to see a new close range meta cause players are tired of the Owen and most of the community except experienced players do not like using this gun in Warzone.
How to unlock the H4 Blixen for Warzone?
The official challenge to unlock the H4 Blixen SMG is: Get 3 Slide Kills in a single match 15 times.
The challenge itself should be quite easy to do in Vanguard Multiplayer or even in Rebirth Island. Remember that in Rebirth you’ll be able to leave the game after doing your 3 kills, whereas in Vanguard multiplayer you will need to finish the 15 games otherwise the count will be lost!
Is the H4 Blixen good in Warzone?
Well we can’t know for certain until we’ve seen the patch notes cause we might have new nerfs or buffs for existing guns. You can check the full history of nerfs and buffs here!
According to Raven, it should be able to compete with the Owen, with a strong focus on mid range. With the recent nerfs of the quickscope snipers like the Swiss K31 or the Kar98k, the community has been searching for the one true meta gun to use next to heavier snipers like the ZRG or the HDR.
My guess is that the short barrel version of this gun will be easier to use than the Owen and at least as powerfull. But where this gun will really shine will be with mid range attachments and as a sniper support.

Official description of the new SMG
Favored by Special Operations Forces, this hard-hitting SMG offers mobility and accuracy in medium range engagements.
The Owen Gun is the most notable slower-firing SMG in this weapon category, but in Classified Arms Reloaded, the H4 Blixen will try and make a claim to power.
In Vanguard Multiplayer, the H4 Blixen delivers a reliable three-shot kill at a farther range than the Owen Gun, albeit with a slower rate of fire. It also has three more bullets per standard magazine and slightly better Vertical Recoil Control, Aim Down Sight (ADS) speed, and reload quickness. The recoil pattern can take time to learn — like all weapons in Call of Duty — but knowing the H4 Blixen’s kick can make it more viable in those mid-range engagements, rather than just have it hold its own up close.
Unlock the H4 Blixen by completing its SMG-based challenge – Get 3 Slide Kills in a single match 15 times – or by purchasing a Store Bundle to be released later this season, which features a Weapon Blueprint from this weapon’s family.
