To get the akimbo perk for the 357, you will obviously need to equip the 357. It’s a secondary weapon so it’ll be in the handguns category. From there, you will need to put it in one of your loadouts and get three kills in five different matches with the 357 while also having the Recon perk equipped.

The Recon perk unlocks when your weapon level hits 34, so you’ll need to do quite a bit of prep work before you can even try to get the akimbo perk. Just get a lot of kills with your 357 and always have it on you because level 34 is quite high. Recon might seem like a bit of a wasted slot since it only increases the range at which you can see an enemy nameplate. That might not be the most useful thing to have for a Magnum but that is what the challenge requires.
