The Type 63 is a fantastic tactical rifle that is suitable for most combat situations, and with a few specific attachments, you can make it unstoppable. This is the best class setup in Black Ops Cold War.
You will find a wide variety of weapons to choose from in Black Ops Cold War. Each one suits different combat situations, so when we’re talking about long range battles, you can’t go wrong with high-bullet-velocity Tactical Rifles.
The Type 63 tactical rifle is an spectacular weapon. This weapon has better ADS and deals more damage than full-auto weapons. It’s one of the best guns you can pick for medium to long range engagements.
Here is the best class for making the Type 63 into even more of a powerhouse.
Best Type 63 Class Setup
The biggest strengths of this weapon are its ADS speed and damage, but it is a single-shot weapon, so this setup will focus mainly on improving the rate of fire while magnifying damage and accuracy.
Get the following attachments:
- Optic: Sillix Holoscout
- Muzzle: KGB Eliminator
- Barrel: 18.3” Strike Team
- Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip
- Handle: Spetsnaz field grip
First off, you should absolutely get a sight for this weapon as you’ll mainly be using it in ranged battles. The Sillix Holoscout will provide 1.75x magnification to the Type 63 tactical rifle. This holographic sight is perfect for ranged battles because it combines the zoom of a 2x scope with the peripheral vision of a red dot sight. Using 2x and 4x scopes would slow you down during the fast paced battle and put you at a disadvantage.
Every time you fire your weapon, you will briefly show up on your enemy’s radar. The KGB eliminator will give you 85% muzzle flash concealment so that enemies have a harder time hunting you down when you shoot. It will also give you 17% more vertical recoil control so that the weapon is more accurate, at the cost of movement speed while shooting and horizontal recoil control.
You can make up for that with the Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip. This will increase your horizontal recoil control by 40% and vertical recoil control by 10%. You’ll rarely have to shoot from the hip in long-range battles so so don’t worry about shooting move speed.
For those rare times you do find yourself in close quarters engagement, the 18.3” Strike Team barrel will help increase your damage and fire rate. This makes up for the weapon being single shot. It also takes away from the effective damage range but the Type 63’s range is so good that it won’t negatively impact you.
The final attachment in this class setup is the Spetsnaz field grip. This will decrease your ADS time by 20% and increase flinch resistance by 80% while also giving a 12% boost to your sprint to fire time. This weapon isn’t great for hip fire, so ADS speed is important in close-range engagements, and flinch resistance will help you keep your shots on target at long range.
That is the best class setup for the Type 63 Tactical Rifle in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. This weapon is excellent for maps like Satellite where long-range combat plays a major role, and these attachments will prime it for close combat as well.
Crazy Black Ops Cold War glitch turns Raid into Rainbow Road
One confused BOCW player encountered a very bright bug that turned a section of Raid into a great copy of Mario Kart’s Rainbow Road.
One CoD player could have easily been mistaken into thinking he was playing Mario Kart instead of Black Ops Cold War. A bizarre texture glitch effectively turned Raid into the legendary Rainbow Road track.
Have you ever been so bored that you stopped to wonder what a Call of Duty and Mario crossover would look like? Well, now you don’t have to as a colorful glitch has made this somewhat of reality on BOCW’s Raid map.
The footage was captured and shared on the official Black Ops Cold War subreddit, allowing a wider audience to see something that needs to be believed.
The trippy video starts off pretty innocuously, but eagle-eyed viewers will already notice that something is amiss with the map’s trees in the first couple of seconds of the match starting.
After darting off with a Sniper Rifle in his hand, the Reddit user quickly turned to his left to scope out the kitchen, when his eyes were met by a dazzling array of colors and shapes. “Do you guys see this?” he asked, hoping that one of his teammates could see the bizarre scene that was taking place on his screen. “Do I have a texture glitch right now? I’m in like a disco right now!”
Of course, with Black Ops Cold War taking place during the 1980s, a disco feels like a logical next step, although when the lights are hitting you during a tense match, it’s probably not ideal.
The notoriously difficult Rainbow Road course would be proud of this as the colors glow and bounce off of everything, including the Sniper Rifle itself.
We can only imagine how distracting this was for the player, and we would love to know if the issue persisted throughout the whole match.
It also makes us wonder if we need full-on Rainbow matches in Call of Duty, and if CoD should somehow do a weird crossover with Mario Kart.

NICKMERCS shows powerful DMR Warzone Season 1 loadout
Streamer NICKMERCS gave us a close look at his preferred loadout for the DMR in Call of Duty: Warzone in his latest video.
Call of Duty content creator Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff showed off his loadout for the DMR in Warzone, which gives the gun a major buff, while making up for the recent nerf that it received.
The DMR has received various nerfs throughout its history in Call of Duty: Warzone, but it remains one of the fastest killing guns in the game. While it’s not as powerful as it used to be, it’s still a great weapon choice in Season 1.
It comes with an impressive firing, high damage, and almost precise accuracy. NICKMERCS is well aware of the DMR’s capabilities in combat, and he posted a YouTube video in which he recommended a specific loadout for the weapon.
NICKMERCS’ DMR Warzone loadout
Nick’s new DMR loadout is quite different post-nerf It’s designed to compensate for the weapon’s recent changes, and to give some major boosts to the damage that it can dish out in combat.
He makes use of the following attachments:
- Muzzle: Infantry Compensator
- Barrel: 16.3” Titanium
- Optic: Axial Arms 3x
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Foregrip
- Ammunition: 30 Rnd Speed Mag
The Infantry Compensator and 16.3” Titanium barrel, are the newest additions to his loadout. The former minimizes the DMR’s vertical recoil so that you don’t have to worry about aiming problems when firing continuously.
Meanwhile, the 16.3” Titanium barrel and Field Agent Foregrip will further improve the gun’s already impressive rate of fire. This will complement the improved recoil control so that you’re able to fire a lot longer.
The Axial Arms 3x is one of the most useful Black Ops Cold War sights in the game, so you’ll be able to use this optic to engage your foes in different types of combat. This will make the DMR ideal for long, medium, and short-range battles.

He capped off the loadout with the 30-round Speed Mag, which will reduce the DMR’s reload time while providing you with enough ammo to continuously dish out pain to your opponents.
NICKMERCS was able to score 20 kills in a single game with this loadout equipped, so it’s definitely worth trying out. It’s clear why the DMR is still one of the most widely picked weapons in Warzone, even after the nerfs it received.
