Cold War and Warzone Crossbow

The R1 Shadowhunter, or better known simply as ‘the Crossbow’, is one of the many new weapons that were added at the beginning of Cold War and Warzone Season Two, but this particular weapon was only available in the Gunfight game mode.

Players were unable to equip the Crossbow in their loadout, obtain it through the battle pass, or even purchase it from the Call of Duty in-game store. It’s clear Activision has plans for the new Crossbow, after accidentally including a new bundle in the store which allowed players to obtain a brand new blueprint for the R1 Shadowhunter. Unfortunately, even when you purchased the bundle, you wouldn’t actually be able to use it in-game or even see it in your loadout.

The new bundle being included in the store was clearly a mistake, and it has now been rectified.

Why Has The Crossbow Been Removed From Cold War?

It looks like the Crossbow was removed from the store because Activision slipped up, they weren’t actually supposed to release the new bundle yet. If you did purchase the new Archaic Range bundle, you will be receiving a refund for the purchase.

Activision has stated that the Crossbow and Archaic Bundle will be returning at a later date.
