Call of Duty Warzone: How to get Sheet Lightning

One of the most popular guns in Call of Duty: Warzone is the M13 assault rifle, better known as Sheet Lightning. Assault rifles are fairly popular because they’re often the most balanced weapons in the game. They’re highly effective when used at mid-range and are able to deal decent damage against enemies.

There are two ways to find Sheet Lightning. However, there is only one way to keep it. Both ways of obtaining Sheet Lightning are worth mentioning because even though the two weapons are the same, they have different advantages from one another.

Sheet Lighting is an epic tier assault rifle that, but at its very basic, it’s an M13. The M13 assault rifles have quickly become the fan-favorite weapon of the series. It’s easy to control at all rankings, which makes it one of the most consistent ARs to use in the game. They can dish out some good damage with a slightly lower rate of fire than the M4A1.

The M13 is much more effective at longer ranges but does lack performance when it comes to close combat. Due to the slower rate of fire, the M13 user can easily be taken down with SMGs, shotguns, or even other assault rifles while in close combat. The slower fire rate can increase the time it takes to take an opponent down. However, the slower fire rate also can increase your own accuracy. Every shot counts, so a slower fire rate will force you to slow down and make sure you nail your target.

Overall, M13 assault rifles can be some of the most powerful weapons in the game. Their overall firepower and ease of control make it a go-to weapon for many Call of Duty: Warzone players.

How to get Sheet Lightning

Sheet Lightning can be purchased as part of the Heavenly Aim bundle. Buying the blueprints for Sheet Lightning is pretty simple. Rather than finding it anywhere, you’ll need to purchase the Heavenly Aim bundle for 800 CoD points. The Heavenly Aim bundle also comes with an animated calling card and emblem. In order to purchase the blueprint and make Sheet Lightning, you’ll need to have an M13 assault rifle in your stock.

To find the blueprint, simply click Weapons > Loadouts. From here, you can select any of your loadouts, then hit Primary Weapon. Select Assault Rifles and hover over M13. The store icon should float out to the left of M13. From here, you’ll be able to purchase the Heavenly Aim pack.

This version of Sheet Lightning is the standard version that streamers are playing with. This blueprint comes with optic, stock, underbarrel, and ammunition attachments, and is notably different from what players in Call of Duty: Warzone will find in crates on the ground.

Another way to find Sheet Lightning is to be lucky enough to find it in a drop. Season 3 has introduced new drops to the game in crates, and one of them is Sheet Lightning. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to keep the weapon in your inventory for future games. The world drop Sheet Lightning comes with a thermal sight early on, which has a different advantage than the blueprint version. With the thermal sight, you’ll be able to see enemies who don’t have the Cold Blooded perk yet.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III has seemingly leaked thanks to Monster
Five main characters from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II.

It looks like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III will be the title of this year's Call of Duty game. Following several leaks, including an undeniable one connected to Monster Energy, a joking tweet from the official Call of Duty Twitter account appears to confirm that this is true.
Leaks suggesting that 2023's Call of Duty game is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III have existed for months, but ramped up recently. On July 17, the Call of Duty Twitter account put up tweets asking if Operators, weapons, and bundles from Modern Warfare II should carry over to this year's game and teasing that a big reveal would happen alongside the unveiling of Season 5. Later that day, Bloomberg's Jason Schreier stated that this is a Sledgehammer Games-led project that started as an expansion and morphed into a full game.
Then, Monday morning, images of Monster Energy promotional materials connected to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III emerged on Twitter, giving us confirmation of the name and our first look at the game's logo.

A leak like this is pretty difficult to deny, so Activision decided to play along with it. "Whew. Mondays," the official Call of Duty account tweeted. "Anyone have an energy drink they can spare?"
While not a traditional, explicit announcement, this tweet confirms the validity of the Monster Energy leak and affirms that this year's Call of Duty will be a direct follow-up to 2022's Modern Warfare II. Now, we'll just have to wait and see when Activision decides to officially reveal more about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III itself. 
Because it's not officially announced yet, we don't know what Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III's release date or launch platforms are. Still, it's likely that it will launch across PC, PlayStation, and Xbox sometime this October or November after Microsoft's Activision Blizzard acquisition closes.

You’re probably using the wrong close-range Warzone weapon
Call of Duty Warzone screenshot of 3 characters walking towards the camera.

Following the Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4 Reloaded update, players have flocked to various close-range weapons, including the Lachmann Sub, the FSS Hurricane, or the ISO 45. However, these close-range weapons pale in comparison to the X13 Auto, a sidearm that has found its way to the top of the close-range meta.

The beauty of this weapon is that, not only does it take down your foes faster than any SMG in the game, but it also doesn't require the use of the Overkill perk, as it's just a sidearm. But how exactly should you build the X13 Auto? Here's a recommended loadout, which focuses on practicality up-close. Just use it while you still can, as it may not last long.
