The ZRG 20mm sniper rifle can be used in both Call of Duty Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, with the same unlock requirement:

Using Sniper Rifles, earn 2 Longshot medals in 10 different matches.

Now if you own Black Ops Cold War and you're not solely a Warzone player, then completing this challenge there should be significantly easier because you'll have a much better time getting quick kills. Post up somewhere high with a sniper, get two longshot medals, then wait till the next match, rinse and repeat.

Alternatively, if you do only play Warzone, then your best bet will be to enter Plunder because you can carry your loadout in from the get-go. Find a nice rooftop to perch atop and pick people off like ants on the ground.

There is also a third option; you can buy the Jackpot Sniper bundle in the store at the moment, which costs 1200CP. This comes with the Big Shot variant of the ZRG 20mm, which has the following attachments:

Muzzle: Infantry Stabilizer
Barrel: 37.9" Ultralight
Laser: SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
Stock: Buffer Tube
Underbarrel: Infiltrator Grip

When it comes to the gun itself, the description reads:

"Bolt-action sniper rifle. High damage, 1-shot kill to the head, chest, and shoulders."

These are all things we love to hear when it comes to snipers, so this will undoubtedly be a fan favourite.
