Modern Warfare 2 Battle Rifle Challenges Not Working Fix

In Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2, there are currently only four available Battle Rifles. Thus, the number of options for completing Battle Rifle challenges is not significant right now. Nonetheless, the developers will surely add more Battle Rifles with future updates. However, the “Battle Rifle Headshots Challenge Not Counting” bug is not related to the number of available Battle Rifles in the game. In fact, it’s the opposite of that. Battle Rifle Challenges will currently only track kills towards challenges with one gun – Lachmann-762.

Based on the Heckler & Koch G3, this battle rifle is the only Battle Rifle in the game instantly available as the first weapon in its weapons platform. All other Battle Rifles are receivers unlocked from various Assault Rifles within their respective weapon platforms. And that’s why MW2 glitches out and doesn’t count toward the Battle Rifle Headshots challenge. The fact that Battle Rifle challenges are not working even two months since the game’s release is definitely not a good look on Infinity Ward. Hopefully, they will fix this and other bugs soon. Until then, the only 100% working workaround for this bug is to use the Lachmann-762 for Battle Rifle challenges to track.
