Here are 5 important things we want to see changed or incorporated into Season 4 of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

Black Ops Cold War Season 3 has been a big step for the Call of Duty title, but here are 5 key improvements we’d love to see implemented in Season 4.

Season 3 of CoD: Cold War has felt like arguably the best one yet thanks to the whole host of extras it’s brought to the game. Standoff has stormed its way into contention as one of the game’s best multiplayer maps to take the overall tally to 17.

Fireteam has been improved with the new battle royale Elimination mode, Outbreak now incredibly contains fishing and the anticipated Easter Egg, plus new weapons like the AMP63, PPSH-41, and Swiss K31 has added depth to the game’s arsenal of weapons.

But things can always be improved, and here are five things we desperately want to see in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Season 4.

5. Brand new maps in CoD: Cold War Season 4

Needless to say, Black Ops Cold War probably could’ve had more maps at launch instead of spreading them out periodically throughout the game’s release. But now the game is positively thriving with different maps and locations.

The rumor mill suggests that Hijacked is on its way to Season 4, with other possible surprises in store as well. However, given that we’ve already had the likes of Express, Raid, Standoff, etc, we wouldn’t mind seeing a fresh map like the inventive and incredible The Pines.

See where we ranked The Pines in our official ranking of all of Black Ops Cold War’s maps.

4. New game modes & Hardcore modes in Cold War Season 4

One thing that Black Ops Cold War is definitely not short of is a veritable selection of game modes for players to indulge in. Between Standard, Hardcore, and a plethora of other playlist options there are so many options for players.

Season 3 had Sticks and Stones, 12v12, and 3v3 Gunfight. But we’re still looking for more Hardcore variations of existing modes, and another Black Ops favorite, One in the Chamber.

3. Better Spawns in CoD: Cold War Season 4

We can’t think of a Call of Duty game in recent memory that has had such unusually placed spawns. Several maps such as Crossroads, Armada, and Satellite all possess blatantly exposed spawn areas that leave players susceptible to a litany of consecutive deaths.

We can forgive this kind of thing occurring on a small map like Nuketown ’84, but it really shouldn’t be happening on mid-to-large-sized maps. Season 2 reworked some of the game’s maps, including reducing the size of Moscow and fixing their spawn positions to make them less vulnerable.

But these enjoyment-ruining predicaments are still happening, and players are begging Treyarch for spawn protection.

2. Less bugs & glitches in Cold War Season 4

We acknowledge this is probably more difficult than it sounds, but fewer bugs would make for a wholesome experience. We’ve commended the efforts of Treyarch dev Josh “FoxhoundFPS” Torres for trying to assist players as much as he can, but Cold War is still ridden with glitches and issues that never get addressed.

In Season 3 alone, we’ve seen the Air Patrol Scorestreak behaving very unusually and a bizarre disco room in Outbreak Zombies.

1. Improved scoring system in Black Ops Cold War Season 4

It’s no secret that Black Ops Cold War’s scoring system is horribly unbalanced. Regardless of the mode you’re playing, the game actively encourages players to focus on kills, kills, and nothing but kills.

A player that ignores the objective to get a 10 killstreak will greatly benefit far more than someone who’s spent the whole game focusing on capturing flags in Domination and locking down Hardpoints. There’s little incentive to concentrate on objectives and Treyarch absolutely needs to address this.

We believe these are six massive things that would change Black Ops Cold War for the better and make the game even better in Season 4.

Players can now get a brand new operator called Arthur Kingsley for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, who is straight out of Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Call of Duty: Warzone and Black Ops Cold War are now in Season 5 Reloaded, giving players an abundance of Operators to choose from.

With speculation around the Season 6 Operator floating around after the recent Season 5 outro cinematic, there is an Arthur Kingsley Operator players can get their hands on before that.

Arthur Kingsley Operator in Call of Duty: Vanguard

Call of Duty: Vanguard will be released on November 5. Now that players have finally had a chance to experience some gameplay with the Open Beta that was recently held, excitement is building.

As we edge closer to release, players are starting to question how Vanguard will integrate into Warzone and how it will carry on the seasonal story Black Ops Cold War has created throughout its integration with the battle royale.

The developers have decided to offer players a new Operator from Vanguard to obtain in both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, giving players a taste for what’s to come.

How to get Arthur Kingsley Operator in Warzone & Cold War

In order to get Arthur Kingsley in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, players must have Call of Duty: Vanguard pre-ordered.

The pre-order must be digital, so don’t be surprised if you have already pre-ordered a physical copy but are not eligible for the Operator.

Here are the further details on the Arthur Kingsley Operator from the Call of Duty blog:

“The incredible value of Call of Duty: Vanguard pre-order rewards just got more legendary.

Starting today, those who digitally pre-order any edition of Call of Duty: Vanguard, or who have already pre-ordered the game already, will be able to play as Arthur Kingsley in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.*

It’s one of two rewards you get immediately for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone from pre-ordering Vanguard before its November 5th release, alongside the “Night Raid” Mastercraft submachine gun.”

So, there you have it, that’s how you can get the new Arthur Kingsley Operator in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.

Warzone & Cold War Season 6 key art leak shows Mason Operator

A new leak looks to have given the Call of Duty community a first look at the Mason Season 6 Operator for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.

A new leak looks to have revealed the first look at the Alex Mason Operator that is expected to be a significant player in the story for Call of Duty: warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season 6.

Season 6 is right around the corner for both Call of Duty: Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, with the community excited to see where the story for both games will be going after the previous five seasons.

The Season 5 outro cinematic that was released recently gave players a tease of who will be major players in the story for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War in Season 6, with Alex Mason being teased as the best person to bring in a rogue Adler thanks to his experience with The Numbers Broadcast that is currently taking over Verdansk.

Alex Mason’s return looks to have received further confirmation, as a recent leak has revealed the Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season 6 key art that has Alex Mason front and center.

This particular leak was posted by PlayStation Game Size on Twitter and showed what appears to be the key art for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season 6 with Mason holding out his hand.

With the likes of Frank Woods and Hudson being playable Operators in Warzone and Cold War, it is not surprising to see that Alex Mason will likely become a playable character in the last season for Black Ops Cold War.

Mason was not featured as heavily in Cold War compared to his roles in Black Ops and Black Ops II, so it will be interesting to see how his speculated return in Season 6 of Warzone and Black Ops Cold War will play out.

There is no doubt that many players will be excited to see Alex Mason return as a playable character if this Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season 6 leak comes to fruition.

Best KSP 45 loadout for CoD: Cold War Season 5

Buffs have made the KSP 45 a fearsome Cold War SMG, so here’s the best loadout with perks and attachments to complement it.

Published

Best Cold War KSP 45 Loadout Class

The KSP 45 has become of CoD: Black Ops Cold War’s best weapons. Treyarch did buff it, and this SMG has been a must-use gun since then. Here is the best Cold War KSP 45 loadout in Season 5, including attachments and Perks.

At the beginning of Cold War, the likes of the MP5, Krig 6, and the FFAR were tearing up lobbies, so guns like the KSP 45 never had a chance.

A burst-fire SMG is a weird hybrid to begin with, but weak stats didn’t help it. But now, it has increased viability as a lobby-owning laser beam.

To ensure that players get the most out of it, we’ve gone through and kitted it out with the best attachments and Perks to discover its best self in Black Ops Cold War Season 5.

Best Cold War KSP 45 loadout

Best Cold War KSP 45 loadout class attachments

To ensure you get the most of Cold War’s KSP 45, ensure you have the Gunfighter wildcard equipped to increase your maximum attachments.

  • Optic: Visiontech 2x
  • Muzzle: Muzzle Brake .45 APC
  • Barrel: 10.2″ Rifled
  • Body: Steady Aim Laser
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Foregrip
  • Magazine: 45 Rnd Drum
  • Handle: Serpent Wrap
  • Stock: Wire Stock

The improved effectiveness of the best Cold War KSP 45 loadout means we want to use this at different distances, so the Visiontech 2x will cover that. The gun’s accuracy is now a big factor in its efficiency, so instead of favoring one or the other, we’ve applied the Muzzle Brake .45 APC to give its vertical recoil a tiny boost.

The 10.2″ Rifled barrel makes the best Cold War KSP 45 loadout even more deadly at range, and the Steady Aim Laser makes it equally deadly at close range. The trusty Field Agent Foregrip bolsters vertical and horizontal recoil whilst the Fast Mag offers super-quick mag changing.

We’re going to give the KSP much faster ADS time thanks to the Serpent Wrap, and the Wire Stock lets us more around more freely with less penalty to sprinting.

Best Perks to use with Cold War KSP 45 class

  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket
  • Perk 2: Assassin
  • Perk 3: Ghost

Staying alive is the name of the game with the KSP 45, as its power can help you to achieve some insane scores. So Flak Jacket provides immunity to the litany of explosive devices that Cold War has in store for players.

Assassin supports this idea by rewarding you with more points for killing enemies on a Scorestreak, and Ghost makes you invisible to tracking devices.

Most recent AK-47 buffs & nerfs in Cold War

Treyarch has tinkered with the KSP 45 in Cold War Season 5, just giving it a couple of minors adjustments for players to consider.

Here are the most recent changes to the KSP 45:

  • Reduced Effective Damage Range from 25.4m to 22.86m
  • Slowed burst fire delay from 0.066 to 0.083

How to unlock the KSP 45

The KSP 45’s newfound power can only be utilized once you reach Level 37.

Doing so allows you to create the best Cold War KSP 45 loadout class, and you can also access it in Warzone Season 5 as well.

Best alternatives

The Milano 821 is another weapon that has become more popular in Black Ops Cold War, making it a fun alternative, especially after it also received recent buffs.

If you need something a bit meatier, then the Krig 6 or Stoner 63 could do wonders as well.
