CoD: Infinite Warfare – All Weapon Scan Locations | ‘Gun Nut’ Guide

On PC, PS4 & Xbox One: Become a true ‘Gun Nut’ and scan every weapon in Infinite Warfare with this full locations guide.


Infinite Warfare features a sci-fi twist on the usual weapon collecting found in other Call of Duty singleplayer stories. This time around, you can scan every single weapon on the battlefield, and if you manage to get them all, you’ll unlock the ‘Gun Nut‘ achievement / trophy. There are a lot of guns in this galaxy, so we’ll point out where to find them all.

There’s a reason you’ll want to track down weapons — anything you find (and scan) on the battlefield, you can copy and use while preparing for the next mission. Scanned weapons can be equipped from the loadout screen, and all you have to do to scan a gun is pick it up. When the scan is complete, you can drop the new weapon and swap to something else.

All Weapon Scan Locations | ‘Gun Nut’ Guide

To scan a weapon, simply pick it up and a ‘scanning’ animation will occur if this is the first time you’ve picked up a new weapon. Most weapons can be found dropped by enemy soldiers, but some very special tools of destruction are only available if you complete side-quests.

Note: After collecting a weapon, continue until you hit an autosave checkpoint. This will save the weapon. You can now exit out of the mission if you’ve already completed it.
