Black Ops Cold War scorestreaks reportedly leaked

Published

on

It looks like the scorestreaks available in Black Ops Cold War have apparently leaked.

The game’s beta offered fans a first look at just some of the new streaks that Treyarch has been working on, but now new images, from what appears to be a PC build, have leaked all the options available. It’s not clear when this build or how old this build it, so the streaks and icons could change.

There isn’t images of each streak individually, but this image does show the icons for all of them. We’ve removed image to avoid DMCAs. Again, this is not 100% confirmed as the final build, but here’s the list:

  • Incendiary Bow
  • RC-XD
  • Armor
  • Spy Plane
  • Counter Spy Plane
  • Flamethrower
  • Care Package
  • Sentry Turret
  • Death Machine
  • Cruise Missile
  • Artillery
  • Hand Canon
  • Napalm Strike
  • Air Patrol
  • War Machine
  • Strafe Run
  • H.A.R.P.
  • Attack Helicopter
  • Chopper Gunner
  • VTOL Escort
  • Gunship


The icons, in the images shown across social media, reveal what looks to be an AC-130 variation, advanced UAV, annihilator pistol, and more options for the game.

It’s not 100% clear yet as to how users have gotten access to the game, or if this is an internal leak from the final build of the game.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War officially launches on Friday, November 13 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.

We’re expecting more information about the game to come as the launch date approaches. The potential for leaks also increases as we get closer to the date, with some people getting early copies illegally.

Stay tuned for the latest news.

A new leak looks to have revealed the first look at the Alex Mason Operator that is expected to be a significant player in the story for Call of Duty: warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season 6.

Season 6 is right around the corner for both Call of Duty: Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, with the community excited to see where the story for both games will be going after the previous five seasons.

The Season 5 outro cinematic that was released recently gave players a tease of who will be major players in the story for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War in Season 6, with Alex Mason being teased as the best person to bring in a rogue Adler thanks to his experience with The Numbers Broadcast that is currently taking over Verdansk.

Alex Mason’s return looks to have received further confirmation, as a recent leak has revealed the Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season 6 key art that has Alex Mason front and center.

This particular leak was posted by PlayStation Game Size on Twitter and showed what appears to be the key art for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season 6 with Mason holding out his hand.

With the likes of Frank Woods and Hudson being playable Operators in Warzone and Cold War, it is not surprising to see that Alex Mason will likely become a playable character in the last season for Black Ops Cold War.

Mason was not featured as heavily in Cold War compared to his roles in Black Ops and Black Ops II, so it will be interesting to see how his speculated return in Season 6 of Warzone and Black Ops Cold War will play out.

There is no doubt that many players will be excited to see Alex Mason return as a playable character if this Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season 6 leak comes to fruition.

Best KSP 45 loadout for CoD: Cold War Season 5

Buffs have made the KSP 45 a fearsome Cold War SMG, so here’s the best loadout with perks and attachments to complement it.

Best Cold War KSP 45 Loadout Class

The KSP 45 has become of CoD: Black Ops Cold War’s best weapons. Treyarch did buff it, and this SMG has been a must-use gun since then. Here is the best Cold War KSP 45 loadout in Season 5, including attachments and Perks.

At the beginning of Cold War, the likes of the MP5, Krig 6, and the FFAR were tearing up lobbies, so guns like the KSP 45 never had a chance.

A burst-fire SMG is a weird hybrid to begin with, but weak stats didn’t help it. But now, it has increased viability as a lobby-owning laser beam.

To ensure that players get the most out of it, we’ve gone through and kitted it out with the best attachments and Perks to discover its best self in Black Ops Cold War Season 5.

Best Cold War KSP 45 loadout class attachments

To ensure you get the most of Cold War’s KSP 45, ensure you have the Gunfighter wildcard equipped to increase your maximum attachments.

  • Optic: Visiontech 2x
  • Muzzle: Muzzle Brake .45 APC
  • Barrel: 10.2″ Rifled
  • Body: Steady Aim Laser
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Foregrip
  • Magazine: 45 Rnd Drum
  • Handle: Serpent Wrap
  • Stock: Wire Stock

The improved effectiveness of the best Cold War KSP 45 loadout means we want to use this at different distances, so the Visiontech 2x will cover that. The gun’s accuracy is now a big factor in its efficiency, so instead of favoring one or the other, we’ve applied the Muzzle Brake .45 APC to give its vertical recoil a tiny boost.

The 10.2″ Rifled barrel makes the best Cold War KSP 45 loadout even more deadly at range, and the Steady Aim Laser makes it equally deadly at close range. The trusty Field Agent Foregrip bolsters vertical and horizontal recoil whilst the Fast Mag offers super-quick mag changing.

We’re going to give the KSP much faster ADS time thanks to the Serpent Wrap, and the Wire Stock lets us more around more freely with less penalty to sprinting.

Best Perks to use with Cold War KSP 45 class

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

Staying alive is the name of the game with the KSP 45, as its power can help you to achieve some insane scores. So Flak Jacket provides immunity to the litany of explosive devices that Cold War has in store for players.

Assassin supports this idea by rewarding you with more points for killing enemies on a Scorestreak, and Ghost makes you invisible to tracking devices.

Most recent AK-47 buffs & nerfs in Cold War

Treyarch has tinkered with the KSP 45 in Cold War Season 5, just giving it a couple of minors adjustments for players to consider.

Here are the most recent changes to the KSP 45:

  • Reduced Effective Damage Range from 25.4m to 22.86m
  • Slowed burst fire delay from 0.066 to 0.083

How to unlock the KSP 45

The KSP 45’s newfound power can only be utilized once you reach Level 37.

Doing so allows you to create the best Cold War KSP 45 loadout class, and you can also access it in Warzone Season 5 as well.

Best alternatives

The Milano 821 is another weapon that has become more popular in Black Ops Cold War, making it a fun alternative, especially after it also received recent buffs.

If you need something a bit meatier, then the Krig 6 or Stoner 63 could do wonders as well.

Warzone & Cold War Season 6 cinematic teases Mason’s return

Warzone and Black Ops Cold War have a new Season 5 outro cinematic hinting at Mason’s importance in the story for Season 6 of the Call of Duty games.

Woods and Hudson talking

The latest cinematic for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 5 has been released, and players are excited about the reference towards Mason returning.

Black Ops Cold War and Warzone have had a successful season so far, keeping players entertained with the ongoing story, new weapons, and new modes like the Iron Trials for Warzone Season 5 Reloaded.

As we enter the final season for Black Ops Cold War before Vanguard‘s release, which will inevitably integrate with Warzone, players have been given a hint towards Mason’s return in a brand new cinematic.

Woods and Mason meeting in an alleyway to discuss Adler going Rogue

Treyarch released a new Season 5 outro cinematic on their YouTube channel on September 23, carrying on the ongoing story that has spanned the last five seasons.

For those still keeping up to date with the details, this outro cinematic plays a pivotal role in setting up the final season for Black Ops Cold War.

Black Ops Cold War will enter its final season soon, and players are desperate to find out who the last operator will be. It seems the last operator could be a fan-favorite character from the Black Ops series, Mason.

Although the cinematic is only a minute long, players can gain some critical information from it. Hudson and Woods are having a conversation about Adler’s disappearance, discussing what they should do next.

Ultimately, they decide that Woods should go after Adler, who is in Verdansk, while also mentioning the return of Mason, whose experience with the numbers could give them the edge.

You can find the official description of the new Warzone and Black Ops Cold War cinematic below:

“The news is flooding in: more Operators have abandoned their missions. Mounting evidence suggests that Adler has gone rogue. Disturbed, Hudson sends Woods to find Adler and bring him in… along with the one person whose Numbers Program intel could provide the edge they need.

The showdown begins in Season Six.”

We’ll have to wait for Season 6 to see where the story will go, but it’s set up to be an exciting end to what’s been a great seasonal story.
