What happened with the R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow?

Earlier this month, the R1 Shadowhunter crossbow went on sale in a weapon bundle on the COD store. After many excitedly bought the brand new weapon, it was taken off the store and away from everyone who had purchased it. They’ve since been refunded for their purchase, but many have been wondering about the weapon and when it will make its return.

Luckily, the crossbow will be back starting tomorrow, March 24. It will be purchasable through the COD shop or unlockable after completing an in-game challenge. To unlock it, you’ll need to earn three ‘One Shot, One Kill’ badges with weapons that have no attachments in 15 different matches.

If you had already started working on the challenge, don’t worry, that progress won’t be disappearing. Treyarch clarified in a tweet today, “players will retain any progress they’ve already earned toward the unlock challenge.” Unfortunately for those who’ve already completed it, you’ll need to earn the three badges in one more match to unlock the crossbow.
