Sledgehammer has become available for players to unlock through a Black Ops Cold War challenge. However, a mistake resets the player’s progress, preventing them from acquiring the melee weapon.
Black Ops Cold War x Warzone season 1 is in progress, which means you have many new weapons available. Sledgehammer is the second melee weapon from the Cold War that you can now unlock.
If you want to get your hands on it, you must complete a challenge that has been double-killed with your knife. The difficulty of this task has been exacerbated by an error that resets the players’ progress without warning.
Sledgehammer Glitch continues to reset the player’s progress
The exact parameters of the challenge require you to score 15 double kills with the knife in separate matches. Completing this in multiplayer, Warzone or Zombies should unlock Sledgehammer, but this does not work properly.
Many players have reported that the game accidentally reset progress when they were well into the challenge. This led them to restart the entire challenge, preventing them from acquiring the weapon.
Several threads have been posted in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War subreddit, where fans come together to express their frustration over this bug. You can see one of these posts below.
Reddit user Klankson wrote: “I tried to do the challenge and came to 10/15, but when I checked my progress, it went down to 5/15. It’s not that bad, but it’s still annoying. ”
This error is frustrating and makes the whole challenge feel like unnecessary grinding. You can still use the Sledgehammer drawing even if you have not unlocked it, but it is in a $ 20 package and you will not progress at weapon level until you complete the challenge.
How to get around Sledgehammer error
The exact cause of this problem is not known at the moment, but a few players have suggested playing a full game on all 15 kills to avoid restoring your progress in the challenge. A helpful tip came from donny126.
“Everyone. You must play the entire game on all 15, otherwise you will reset your progress. In fact, you have to play one game after 15 where you equip it and play to completion as well if you want to guarantee that it does not disappear. Ducked up game ”
A few players have tried this solution and it seems to have worked. It’s not going to be easy, so you need to quickly collect the double kills. The best way to do that is to play in Nuketown ’84 with the knife as your primary.
Also, make sure you have the right class equipped to let go of your enemies, such as Ninja or or Tracker. This map is small enough that you can meet enemies more often, so be ready for a battle. Doing this will eventually give you Sledgehammer.
Although this problem is faced by several players across the community, there is no planned solution for it listed on the Black Ops Cold War Trello board. So fans need to stick with using the solution for a while.
It is likely that Treyarch and Raven Software are not aware of the error yet. Hopefully they will announce a solution soon and we will make sure to update you when they do.
