There are two different variants for the SKS available in the game. The paid one is the legendary variant that players can acquire from the Lucky Draw. They also stand a chance to pocket the second Witch Doctor skin in CoDM, which is one of the coolest looking skins by a margin.

The free-to-play version is available as a reward of the BR Buff Seasonal Challenge. It is a series of eight challenges and players need to grind the Battle Royale mode for it. There is another new element in CoDM BR that came with this update. The Desperado class has finally been added, and it comes with a game-breaking advantage.

The Desperado class is basically the Shield Turret from multiplayer. However, if players have this class, they can use a pistol after the enemy downs them. If they manage to kill with the pistol, then they self-revive.

This class will be helpful for players in extremely close range and tight scenarios. Sometimes, due to a broken vest or armor, players lose fights even after hitting the enemy with critical shots. This will allow them to finish the kill and also revive themselves in the procedure.
