The latest "CoD: Warzone" R1 Shadowhunter will be removed from your inventory after Activision confirmed the weapon's availability is a mistake. The game developer added that it would refund the money of those players who purchased the new crossbow.
The Warzone Store currently has this “Archaic Range” bundle that includes the un-released Crossbow for Cold War & Warzone.— deezy🇨🇦 (@DeezythaGhost) March 18, 2021
NOTE: As of now, buying it does nothing. The weapon does not get added to your inventory yet. It shows up in the Bundle Locker but cannot be equipped. pic.twitter.com/c2bfTDl09S
According to PC Gamer's latest report, Activision finally responded to the negative feedback of the players since they complained that the new weapon is unusable in an actual match. However, this new crossbow can still be used in "Call of Duty: Black Ops" zombies and multiplayer mode.

Refunds are planned for players who purchased the bundle while it was live in the Store, and the bundle and in-game challenge will return at a later date.
Previously, the game publisher said that the players could buy it if they complete the new mission, which requires them to get three one-shot, one-kill medals in 15 matches with zero attachments. Activision confirmed the issue through its latest tweet.
"An issue with the R1 Shadowhunter weapon appearing earlier than planned in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War has been resolved," said the game developer via its official Twitter account.
"Refunds are planned for players who purchased the bundle while it was live in the Store, and the bundle and in-game challenge will return at a later date," added the company.
What will happen to the 'CoD: Warzone' mission?
Activision said that the players would have their refund from the game's real-money store. But, the game developer might have a problem with those fans who acquired the new crossbow for free.

On the other hand, the company also explained that it would reset all the progress made by the players for its new mission linked with the R1 Shadowhunter. This was confirmed by a Treyarch community manager, saying that everyone will be forced to start over. As of the moment, Activision hasn't released any confirmation yet regarding the weapon's release date.
