Grav in Black Ops Cold War

With a new Cold War season comes new weapons, and Season 6’s Grav brings back the classic Galil. It’s shaping up to be a powerful choice, so we’ve got the best attachments and Perks to dominate with it.

The sixth and final season of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is here, and alongside the new Zombies map and Mason, it’s brought back the fan-favorite Galil in the form of the Grav. This Assault Rifle is looking to be one of the game’s better offerings, so is well worth unlocking.

To help you get the best performance from the Grav, we’ve got the attachments and Perks you should be running in Cold War Season 6’s multiplayer.

Best Cold War Grav loadout attachments

  • Optic: Microflex LED
  • Muzzle: Suppressor
  • Barrel: 19.8″ Ranger
  • Body: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Magazine: RK-7 30 Rnd Conversion
  • Handle: Airborne Pistol Grip
  • Stock: Raider Stock

This Cold War Grav loadout is all about getting the weapon to a place where you can easily take down targets at range, and compete with weapons such as the EM2. Bear in mind that you need to be running the Gunfighter Wildcard to get all eight attachments.

While the Grav does have relatively clean Iron Sights, we feel that the Microflex LED vastly improves its accuracy and tracking ability. Next, the Suppressor will keep you off the minimap, allowing you to pull off some awesome flanks and eliminate several enemies before they know what’s hit them.

This does slightly impact its bullet velocity, so we recommend the 19.8″ Ranger barrel. Giving a huge boost to velocity, your bullets will hit the enemies faster and moving targets will be easier to track. And to help see these far-off targets, the Tiger Team Spotlight reveals enemy nameplates.

The Grav does have a considerable kick, so the Field Agent Grip will be a huge help in reigning in the recoil. And to make the weapon do even more damage to compete with the best Assault Rifles, you should use the RK-7 30 Rnd Conversion.

And for a lot more speed and mobility, you should combine the Airborne Pistol Grip and Raider Stock. You’ll get your gun up faster, move faster, and will be able to dropshot.

Best Perks to run with the Grav in Cold War Season 6

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

You’ll be using the Gunfighter Wildcard with the Grav, so you’ll only get to use one Perk from each slot.

If you’re playing objective modes, expect several grenades and other explosives to come your way. Flak Jacket significantly reduces explosive damage taken, so is vital for Cold War.

Next, you don’t want to have to drop your Grav after running out of ammo, so Scavenger will keep your ammo topped up as you resupply from other players’ bodies.

And finally, the Ghost Perk will hide you from Spy Planes, catching anyone watching the minimap completely off guard.

How to unlock the Grav in Cold War Season 6

Players can earn the Grav completely for free by reaching Tier 31 of the Cold War Season 6 Battle Pass.

There’s nothing else to it apart from that, you just need to play multiplayer, Zombies, or Warzone until you earn enough XP to unlock the Grav.

Best alternatives to the Grav in Cold War Season 6

If you haven’t unlocked the Grav or it’s not your cup of tea, there are plenty of viable alternatives in Cold War. The AK-47 is an absolute powerhouse that will chew through enemies but if you’re looking for something more accurate, you can never go wrong with the Krig 6.


And that’s everything you need to build the best Grav loadout in Black Ops Cold War Season 6! You can also check out our weapons tier list for the best gun overall.

How to unlock the Scythe in Black Ops Cold War

The Scythe is a melee weapon coming to Black Ops Cold War. Here’s everything you need to know about unlocking the Scythe.

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.
