Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s latest season has added loads of new content to the game, with the latest update introducing a new secondary weapon, the AMP63. Here are the attachments and perks to make the best Cold War AMP63 loadout.

Black Ops Cold War Season 3 has been a pretty busy season, with new multiplayer maps, modes, and even a scorestreak for players to enjoy.

As well as the PPSH-41, Swiss K31, Ballistic Knife, and Carv.2, Treyarch has now introduced another new secondary weapon, the AMP63. Although it isn’t a primary weapon, the AMP63 can be pretty viable and fun to use with the right setup.

Best Black Ops Cold War AMP63 Loadout

Best AMP63 attachments for Cold War Season 3

  • Body: Swat 5MW Laser Sight
  • Barrel: 6.4″ Task Force
  • Muzzle: Sound Suppressor
  • Magazine: Salvo 22RND Fast Mag
  • Stock: Dual Wield

The Sound Suppressor is obviously great for staying hidden and not making too much commotion while you are moving around the map. The 6.4″ Task Force barrel will counter some of the range reduction from the suppressor and help boost the firepower.

Furthermore, the Swat 5MW Laser Sight will help your hip-fire accuracy as you will be using the Dual Wield stock for this loadout, which makes the weapon a beast from up close.

Lastly, the Salvo 22RND Fast Mag will allow you to maintain fire for a little bit longer and make missing shots not as devastating, especially as without it the base magazine size is a measly 15.

Best perks with the AMP3 in Cold War Season 3

First off, you will definitely want to run Perk Greed with the best Cold War AMP63 loadout to get the most out of this Pistol, as this will allow you to run 6 perks instead of 3.

  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket, Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Scavenger, Assasin
  • Perk 3: Ghost, Gung-ho

As this weapon will force you to run and gun, especially with the Dual Wield attachment, Flak Jacket, Tactical Mask, and Gung-ho will allow you to stay mobile while on the move, preventing any lethals or tacticals from ruining your day.

Both Scavenger and Assassin are great choices for your second perk, as Scavenger allows you to stay kitted with bullets while you’re on the move, while Assassin gains you some extra points which is always an added bonus.

Lastly, you can never go wrong with Ghost in the best Cold War AMP63 loadout, as this perk will prevent enemies from tracking you down while you’re running about, keeping you hidden on the mini-map.

How to unlock the AMP63 in Cold War Season 3

The AMP63 is Warzone and Cold War’s brand new secondary weapon, which players can unlock for free by completing a challenge.

The challenge is fairly straight forward, as players must get 5 pistol kills in 20 different matches, which is fairly easy, but can be quite time consuming depending on the game mode you’re playing.

Keep in mind that on Cold War, players will need to finish the game completely for the 5 kills to count, so it may be easier to complete on Warzone’s Plunder game mode, where after 5 kills you can back out and maintain your progress.

Best alternatives

The best alternatives to the AMP63 are some of Cold War’s other strong secondary pistols, like the Diamatti or any of the best guns currently in Cold War.

Use these weapons when getting your 5 kills in 20 matches to unlock the AMP63, as they will have you taking down enemies in no time.


Well, there you have it, our best loadout for the new AMP63 secondary pistol in Black Ops Cold War. For more on Call of Duty, stay tuned on Charlie INTEL and check out our article on the new Cold War Season 4 Zombies leaks.

A brand-new melee weapon is coming to Black Ops Cold War and here’s everything you need to know about the Scythe, including how to unlock it.

It can be fun to rack up kills from a distance with an Assault Rifle after hopping into a game of Black Ops Cold War, and sometimes it’s more exciting to use a melee weapon to battle your enemies up close.

Treyarch accidentally released the Scythe melee weapon in Black Ops Cold War in a surprise update on June 6, giving players a sneak peek at the weapon. Now there is an official release date for the Scythe in Black Ops Cold War, so here’s how you can unlock it.

How to unlock the Scythe in Black Ops Cold War

The Scythe will be released for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on August 12, 2022.

Here’s how to unlock the Scythe in both Multiplayer and Zombies:

  • Multiplayer – Using a Melee weapon, get 2 kills while Ninja or Dead Silence are active in 15 different completed matches.
  • Zombies – Using a primary Melee weapon, kill 200 enemies while Insta-Kill is active.

Completing 15 multiplayer matches will take some time, so you might be faster jumping into a game of Zombies.

The in-game description says that the Scythe is a “quick swinging” two-handed melee weapon that allows you to “reap a bountiful harvest by cutting down all who stand in your path.”

Best UGR loadout for Black Ops Cold War

The UGR is a brand-new SMG in Black Ops Cold War, so here’s our best compelte with Attachments, Perks, and Equipment.

Published

on

The UGR is a brand-new SMG in Black Ops Cold War, and players can’t wait to try it out in multiplayer matches. Here’s our breakdown of the best UGR loadout to run in BOCW.

Even though CoD Vanguard is now in its third season, and Modern Warfare 2 is arriving this year, support for Black Ops Cold War is still going strong. After a huge Zombies patch on April 25, Treyarch have now added a remastered version of the Jungle map, as well as a new weapon.

The UGR SMG is an interesting close-range option, as it’s an “underwater rifle modified for improved land performance.” It doesn’t have the bullet velocity to take enemies out at distance, but it’s formidable in close-quarters combat.

If you’re looking to run it in multiplayer, you’ll need to know how to make the most of it. Check out our best UGR loadout for Black Ops Cold War.

Best Cold War UGR loadout attachments

  • Barrel: 12.8″ VDV Reinforced
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Magazine: Explosive Flechettes
  • Handle: GRU Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock

We kick things off with the 12.8″ VDV Reinforced Barrel to seriously boost the UGR’s bullet velocity and damage range. The UGR is severely lacking in both departments, but this attachment makes it far more competitive in longer-range battles.

Next up, we went for the Spetsnaz Grip to keep the recoil in check and make it far easier to control. Then we chose KGB Skeletal Stock and GRU Elastic Wrap for a decrease in sprint-to-fire time and ADS speed, allowing you to get shots earlier while rushing around the map.

Many were surprised to see that the UGR comes with explosive rounds, so we couldn’t resist equipping Explosive Flechettes to our loadout. Aside from the obvious boost in overall damage, they also increase ammo capacity which is vital in a fast-firing weapon.

Best Cold War UGR Perk & Equipment

  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket & Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Scavenger & Assassin
  • Perk 3: Ghost & Ninja
  • Lethal Equipment: Semtex
  • Tactical Equipment: Stimshot

We think the UGR is still effective with only five attachments, so we’re equipping Greed Wildcard to use extra Perks in each slot in BOCW multiplayer matches,

Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask are incredibly important in the first slot, as they’ll keep you protected from incoming explosives and Gas Mines, which can be frustrating when running and gunning.

Next, we picked Scavenger to make sure you never run out of ammo, as well as Assassin to keep the Scorestreaks rolling in. In the final slot, we recommend Ghost to stay invisible on enemy radars, as well as Ninja to help with flanking, which you’ll want to do a lot of with the UGR.

In terms of equipment, Semtex is an easy-to-use lethal, while Stimshot will give you a handy health boost when things get tough out there.

How to unlock UGR in Black Ops Cold War

To unlock the UGR SMG, players must kill an enemy revealed by their Spy Plane, UAV, or Field Mic with an SMG in 15 different completed matches. If you’re not a big multiplayer fan, it can be earned in Zombies by eliminating 1000 enemies while using an Epic rarity or better SMG.

You can also bypass the challenges altogether if you don’t mind spending 2,400 CoD Points on the new Lazar bundle.

Best alternatives to Cold War’s UGR

Black Ops Cold War has some powerful SMGs if the UGR isn’t working for you. The TEC-9 and LC10, in particular, remain incredibly strong in multiplayer matches and rank as two of the best weapons in the entire game.

How to unlock UGR SMG in Cold War & Warzone

Here’s everything you need to know about the new UGR SMG including how to unlock the weapon in Cold War and Warzone.

Published

on

Treyarch continue to release new weapons for Cold War and the latest is the UGR SMG based on the APS underwater rifle that will be making its way to both Cold War and Warzone. Here’s how to unlock the UGR in Cold War and Warzone.

Although Vanguard is now in Season 3 and 2022’s Modern Warfare 2 has been announced, Treyarch are still releasing content for 2020’s Black Ops Cold War. Alongside a ton of Zombies changes that arrived with the April 25 update, Treyarch confirmed the classic Jungle map and a brand-new weapon would arrive in the “coming weeks.”

On May 6, the new UGR SMG made its way to the game alongside a remastered version of the Jungle map. Here’s how to unlock the UGR in Cold War and Warzone.

UGR SMG in Cold War & Warzone

Those who played Call of Duty: Ghosts may recognize Cold War’s new UGR SMG as it’s based on the APS underwater rifle that appeared in the campaign. The in-game description says it’s a “full-auto submachine gun” and an “underwater rifle modified for improved land performance.”

The weapon is projectile-based with quite a low bullet velocity, so you won’t be beaming enemies at range with ease. Players were also surprised to see that it comes with explosive bullets.

How to unlock UGR in Cold War & Warzone

Players can unlock the UGR by killing an enemy revealed by your Spy Plane, UAV, or Field Mic with an SMG in 15 different completed matches. You can also unlock the UGR in Zombies if you eliminate 1000 enemies while using an Epic rarity or better SMG.

The new UGR SMG has the same unlock challenge for both Cold War and Warzone, so it’ll be up to you to decide which game you’d like to complete it in. In addition, you can also receive the UGR straight away by purchasing the new Lazar bundle for 2,400 CoD Points.


The Nikita AVT and M1916 have also arrived in Warzone with Season 3, so you can check out how to unlock the new Assault Rifle and Marksman Rifle.
