Best Type 63 class for Black Ops Cold War

The Type 63 is a phenomenal weapon at long range. Here’s how you can make it even better, and compete in close quarters too.

Published

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.

Black Ops Cold War player uses bizarre Superman glitch to score a kill

An incredible bug in CoD: Cold War has been found that can turn players into Superman. One player did this to score an amazing kill.

Everyone has dreamed of being Superman at some point, and one Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War player was able to do just this thanks to an insane glitch.

CoD: Cold War has had its fair share of weird and wonderful moments that defy the physics and mechanics of the game. From leaving players quite literally legless to turning the game into Lord of the Rings, Cold War has had a few oddities.

But if you thought those were slightly peculiar, then you need to feast your eyes on this crazy glitch that saw one CoD: Cold War player take flight. Not only that, but they even had the audacity to capitalize on this by pulling off an unbelievable no-scope in midair.

The moment of madness comes courtesy of Reddit user OhhZio who took advantage of the truly freakish bug they encountered during a game of Black Ops Cold War.

During a game of Fireteam: Dirty Bomb, the player parachuted down as normal to deploy into Alpine, and they flew straight into a ladder.

They didn’t cling to it and ascend or descend to reach a part of the building, they instead jumped off and headed off in a different direction – parachute still engaged.

The next sequence was remarkable as the player was able to fly directly into several trees, bounce off of them, and gain elevation in doing so. They seemingly had the power of flight and took full advantage by quickly equipping their Sniper Rifle and delivering a killing blow to an enemy through a house window – whilst no-scoping.

The top comment for the clip said, “In all my years of playing and watching Call of Duty, this is the best clip I have ever seen.”

We’d be hard-pressed to disagree as the footage is fantastic, but it does raise a question as to why players are suddenly able to transform into Superman without donning his cape.

Whether this is a one-off or a repeatable bug, it’s probably something Treyarch will need to look into to avoid having a Fireteam lobby resembling the DC Universe.

With so many Prestige levels, different weapon levels, and Battle Pass levels in Cold War and Warzone, it’s only natural to want more XP. Here’s when the next CoD Double XP event is going to be.

XP has been a vital component of Call of Duty’s multiplayer for many years. It’s the quintessential upgrade mechanic that allows you to increase your in-game level and provide you access to better gear and attachments.

Every now and again CoD will throw out some awesome Double XP events that allow players to increase their earnings and level everything up faster. Season 2 of Cold War and Warzone has already provided lots of new content to help the race for XP, and now another ample opportunity is being offered.

This will be the final one for Season 2 as Season 3 is set to begin shortly.

How to get Double XP in CoD: Cold War & Warzone Season 2

It’s been announced that Call of Duty’s next Double XP promotional event will officially start on April 16 and will expire on April 19.

PlayStation players will actually get a head start on Xbox and PC players by a full 24 hours. Meaning that PlayStation users can start earning Double XP from April 15.

Here’s a full list of the event’s start time & dates in some of the key timezones:

  • EST – 1pm

These special Double XP Events usually occur during a weekend, and this one is no different. It naturally gives players the most free time as it’s away from school hours and generally when people are off work.

If you’ve got those last few items to clean up on the Battle Pass, or you’re a touch shy of Prestige Level 200, then this is a great opportunity to try and do just that.

When does Warzone & Cold War Season 3 start? Season 2 end date

Warzone & Black Ops Cold War Season 2 has finally dropped, but when will they end, and when will Season 3 commence?

Published

cod warzone season 3

We’re fast approaching the end of Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season 2, so when does Season 3 begin and what does it have in store?

Ever since the integration of Black Ops Cold War into Warzone, we’ve seen a vast number of additions and changes to both games. The subsequent updates have allowed Verdansk to expand with Rebirth Island, and even incorporate Zombies into Warzone.

Warzone Season 2 has also introduced some other pretty hefty changes to the games including some pretty interesting map changes to freshen things up, and also two new weapons from Black Ops Cold War, the FARA 83 Assault Rifle and the LC10 SMG, that could shift the meta.

We’re already hearing mumblings and murmurs of potential new content for the future though, with Warzone Season 3 spying a huge revamp in April. So we begin to wonder, how long will Season 2 actually last for, and when can we expect CoD to drop Season 3 of both Black Ops Cold War & Warzone?

Warzone & Cold War Season 3 start date

Previous seasons of Modern Warfare and Warzone, before its numbered season reboot, usually lasted around 10 weeks, and this has proven to be the case for Warzone & Black Ops Cold War.

Season One officially began on December 16, 2020, with the newest season beginning on February 25, 2021. This is approximately a 10-week gap between both which is in keeping with type.

The current Battle Pass has presented a set date it’s expected to end, and a new season usually starts shortly after last season’s Battle Pass has expired. With the information we currently have, we can expect Season 3 to begin on April 22, 2021.

This lines up with the confirmed season end date of April 21, given in the first Warzone nuke event teaser. It says the event will go live at 12 PM, as Verdansk will be completely overtaken by the undead.

Cold War Season 3 weapons

Call of Duty leakers have discovered some upcoming weapons in Warzone’s game files. Since these files are usually only added when weapons are in the final stage before release, we might see them arrive in Season 3.

Among them was a fast-firing burst Assault Rifle that could potentially be a Tactical Rifle like the M16 and AUG. Another weapon in the files seemed to be an SMG described with ‘spray,’ which probably means that it boasts a high fire rate.

The classic Ballistic Knife from the original Black Ops will also be arriving in Warzone and Cold War in the upcoming season. This projectile melee weapon has become a staple of the Call of Duty franchise, so it’s an exciting addition.

The data miners also stated that a new full-auto pistol and a Baseball Bat melee weapon might be joining the game in the Season 3 Reloaded update or in Season 4.

Warzone & Cold War mid-Season 2 update

While we waited for Black Ops Cold x Warzone Season 3, Activision released a mid-Season update with a ton of new content on March 29 at 9PM PT.

This brought three new maps to the game’s multiplayer, with Golova for Fireteam, Mansion for Gunfight, and Miami Strike for 6v6. Also, for the Zombies fans out there, Sanatorium will be joining the roster of Ural Mountains maps available in the Outbreak game mode.

The ZRG 20mm Sniper Rifle has also arrived, along with a load of weapon balancing in Cold War.

1980s revamp leaked for Warzone Season 3

We got a first look at what the next evolution of Verdansk will be in a celebrity commercial that was posted to Twitter. It showed the map getting a 1980s makeover with a specific focus on a few key areas.

Stadium, Dam, Airport, and the surrounding forestry were the highlighted locations in the video, along with some changes in Downtown. Later, another possible teaser was discovered in Verdansk’s Superstore in the form of a poster for the 1980s Moscow Summer Olympics.

We expect more teasers for Season 3 to pop up around Verdansk and Cold War’s multiplayer, and the ones that have been found make Warzone’s 1980s overhaul seem all the more likely.

We’ve still a bit of time to go until Season 3 and Activision will be busy concentrating on making Season Two the best it can be. They have already rolled out large-scale ban waves to accounts that are found to be guilty of cheating.

Speculation will already be ongoing as to what we’ll see in Warzone Season 3, including a massive event that could change Warzone forever.
