Black Ops Cold War: LW3- Tundra weapon guide

Here is the best LW3 Tundra Loadout in Black Ops Cold War.

Published

Black Ops Cold War has a smaller collection of sniper rifles to pick than usual, but they’re great choices. The LW3 Tundra is an amazing weapon because it’s applicable in different combat situations. Here is everything you need to know about it.

If you’re someone who prefers to camp somewhere with a good view of the battlefield and pick off enemies from a distance, then you’ll find that Black Ops Cold War doesn’t currently have a high number of sniper rifles to choose from. There are only two bolt-actions in the game so far.

The Pelington 703 is popular because it’s a fine weapon and the first one you unlock, but you cannot overlook the LW3 Tundra. This gun is able to deal large amounts of damage with moderate sway while remaining relatively easy to handle.

The weapon doesn’t have the same ratings as the Pelington and it isn’t as fast, but you can improve on it by using the BOCW Gunsmith to add a few select attachments. We’ve prepared this LW3 Tundra loadout that will prime the weapon for speed.

Best LW3 Tundra Loadout

Right off the bat you’ll need a few more attachments than usual in order improve the weapon’s speed. For this you should make use of the Gunfighter wildcard to open a few extra slots. Then get the following attachments:

  • Muzzle: Stabilizer .308
  • Barrel: 25.8 Rapid Fire
  • Body: Steady Aim Laser
  • Underbarrel: Infiltrator Grip
  • Magazine: Fast Mag
  • Handle: Serpent Wrap
  • Stock: Raider Pad

The Stabilizer .308 muzzle provides the weapon with 20% more Idle Sway Control. This is a useful feature to have when using any sniper rifle as your stillness will determine the trajectory of your shot.

Next we’ll focus on prepping this weapon for speed in those more hectic matches. The 25.8 Rapid Fire barrel will give a small boost to the LW3-Tundra’s fire-rate with zero consequences. Now you’ll be able to fire the rifle from the hip with a greater chance of success.

We can further improve that with the body by equipping the Steady Aim Laser. This will provide a 30% buff to your hip-fire accuracy in combat so it goes well with the barrel. Plus, it’s going to make up the accuracy that you’d lose with a few of the upcoming attachments.

You want to be able to move fast when someone comes at you with an SMG or tactical rifle. For this you want the speed boosts that Infiltrator Grip will grant you. You’ll be quicker when aim walking, running, or moving while shooting.

Since the name of the game is speed, it’s fitting that we pick the aptly named Fast Mag for the magazine. You will gain a 25% boost to your reloading speed so that you spend less time as a sitting duck while someone waits to ambush you.

You’ll mostly fire from the hip so you won’t need to aim that often when in close combat, however it doesn’t hurt to be prepared. The Serpent Wrap handle will increase your ADS time by 10 % at the cost of 10% of your sprint-to-fire speed.

You can make up for the latter with the Raider Pad stock as this will give a 30% boost to your sprint-to-fire time, and also increase aim walking movement speed by 40%.

All of these attachments combined will turn your sniper rifle into a weapon that is ideal for both long range and close quarters combat. That makes this the best LW3 Tundra Loadout in Black Ops Cold War.

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

on

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.

Best Bullfrog loadouts in Black Ops Cold War

Published

on

Here’s the best class setup for the Bullfrog submachine gun in Black Ops Cold War.

The Bullfrog submachine gun is the final weapon unlock for the SMG category. It holds an impressive 50 bullets by default, and is lightweight and compact, making it a perfect weapon for up-close and personal gunfights.

Here’s the best loadout as pointed out by YouTuber iAlpha. (Video below)

  • Muzzle: KGB Eliminator – Less vertical recoil and more muzzle flash concealment at the cost of shooting move speed and horizontal recoil control. Makes the weapon move more side to side than up and down. Perfect for staying on target.
  • Barrel: 7.4″ Task Force – Extended barrel for more bullet damage, speed, and range. Removes a magazine from your inventory off spawn and adds more weapon recoil to compensate for the increased range.
  • Body: GRU 5MW Laser Sight – Additional hip-fire accuracy at the cost of Aim Down Sight time.
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip – Increased recoil control (cancels out some of the downsides of the muzzle and barrel) at the cost of shooting move speed.
  • Magazine: VDV 85 Round Fast Mag – Thick 85 round magazine so you’ll always have plenty of ammo for the fight, with quick reloads as a bonus. Has a 25% decrease to aim down sight time.

Tips for the field

  • Spam, Spam, Spam – The nickname for this weapon should be “bullet hose” because that’s precisely what it is. Whenever you are close to an enemy, lay fire into them from the hip. When you are a bit further, aim down sights.
  • Choose your battles – The Bullfrog is for up close and personal gunfights. Do not try to engage enemies from afar. Close in the distance and mow your enemies down with ease.
  • Flank Machine – The fast handling and movement speed of this weapon makes it a breeze to travel from one end of the map to another.
  • Run Gung-Ho – The Gung-Ho perk lets you shoot more accurately while sliding and helps you aim faster from a sprint. Perfect for this compact beast of a weapon.
