How to Get the Cryo Dismemberment in Call of Duty: Warzone

One of the newest Warzone operator packs includes the Cryo Dismemberment effect. In this guide, we'll explain how to get it and what it does.

Call of Duty has evolved so much since its inception in 2003. As part of Warzone's latest Season 4 update, you'll gain access to a slew of new features, one of which is called Cryo Dismemberment. This is a weapon effect that, as the name suggests, allows you to freeze and dismember your enemy's limbs. It's a little brutal, but par for the course for a Call of Duty game. 

Acquiring Cryo Dismemberment is fairly straightforward, but there are some things you need to know about it. In this guide, we'll explain how to get Cryo Dismemberment in Warzone, along with other useful information about the effect.

How to Acquire Cryo Dismemberment

You have to buy the Wendigo pack in Warzone to get Cryo Dismemberment.

Unfortunately, there is no way to get your hands on Cryo Dismemberment without purchasing the Wendigo Operator Pack for 2,400 COD Points (equivalent to $19.99). Better start saving your points now if you want to get it!

The pack includes the following goodies:

  • Taiga  Kreuger Skin
  • Psychosis  Assault Rifle
  • Evil Manifest  Submachine Gun
  • Sasquach  Operator Finishing Move
  • Crevasse (Icepick)  Melee
  • Abominable  Charm
  • What they Send  Kreuger Quip
  • Polar Pal  Calling Card
  • Snowball Smiles  Emblem
  • Out in the Cold  Spray

As you can see, the theme of this pack is "cold." While the pack comes with a lot to enjoy, the two items you'll want to look out for are the Psychosis and the Evil Manifest blueprints, both of which come equipped with Cryo Dismemberment. 

Which Weapons Support Cryo Dismemberment

Psychosis  FN Scar 17

The Psychosis assault rifle is one of the guns that uses Cryo Dismemberment in Warzone.

The first weapon blueprint that gives you access to Cryo Dismemberment is the Psychosis, which corresponds to the FN Scar 17. This is already one of the best weapons in the game, and the Psychosis blueprint gives it effective attachments and a bit of flare so you can take out the competition in style. 

It includes:

  • Muzzle  Compensator
  • Stock  FSS Close Quarters Stock
  • Underbarrel  Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition  30-round Mags
  • Rear Grip — Stippled Grip Tape

Its white finish and Abominable Snowman charm fit the theme, and it'll allow you to de-limb any of your enemies. This weapon is highly recommended for those who like to engage in medium-range combat. 

Evil Manifest Stiker 45 (UMP)

The Evil Manifest is a UMP that uses Cryo Dismemberment in Warzone.

The second weapon blueprint that includes Cryo Dismemberment is the Evil Manifest, which is tied to the Striker 45 (aka UMP). Much like the Psychosis, this is one of the best weapons in the game, giving you a slow rate of fire in exchange for high damage, especially up close. 

Here's what it includes:

  • Muzzle v Compensator
  • Barrel — 300mm Poly Barrel
  • Underbarrel  Operator Foregrip
  • Ammunition  45-round Mags
  • Rear Grip  FTAC 60 Series Rubber

Remember, you can swap out the attachments as you see fit, but overall, it's got a solid list. The 45-round mags are great for those who like to get into the thick of things, whereby you can take out multiple enemies in a row without reloading. 

How Cryo Dismemberment Works in Warzone

There isn't anything you need to do differently in-game to use the Cryo Dismemberment effect. Simply fire at an enemy and the weapon will take care of the rest. After you get the kill, you can walk over to the body to see their limbs — or lack thereof. 

This is a purely aesthetic effect, but one that you'll likely want to try since it's so over-the-top and brutal.
