Black Ops Cold War Season One modes revealed

Black Ops Cold War season 1 will add Prop Hunt, aside brand new game modes.

Published

Treyarch has confirmed the new modes coming to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War in Season One.

The new modes will include the fan-favorite mode Prop Hunt, alongside 2 brand new modes, Drop Kick and Combined Arms: Hardpoint. 

Season One officially begins on December 16 with new content in Warzone, new MP content in Black Ops Cold War, and morel

Here’s a rundown from all of the new game modes:

Prop Hunt

The hilarious fan-favorite mode returns! Two teams alternate between being the Props or the Hunters every round. The Props disguise themselves as everyday items scattered around the various multiplayer maps, from a Soviet ticket booth to a baby grand piano. Props also have access to a concussive blast if a Hunter gets too close, as well as the ability to deploy clones to create confusion. However, Props also automatically whistle every 20 seconds, enabling keen-eared Hunters to hone in on their location.

A round ends once all the Props are found and destroyed, or at least one Prop survives at the end of the time limit. There are multiple rounds, meaning everyone gets a chance to hide and seek. The first team to take three rounds wins. Easy to understand, difficult to master, and always amusing, this party mode is a true test of keen eyesight, map knowledge, and outmaneuvering the world’s toughest Operators… as a piece of scenery.

Drop Kick 

This frantic game of nuclear hot potato features two teams each vying for control of a special and extremely important briefcase. The round begins with each team racing to the location of the nuclear briefcase and attempting to pick it up. Anyone grabbing the briefcase is automatically equipped with a powerful pistol, but it’s ideally up to the rest of the team to keep the briefcase-carrier safe. The team with the case gains access to launch codes, as well as an ever-increasing score for their team.

If you die while your team controls the briefcase, you will not respawn until your carrier has been eliminated and the briefcase has been dropped. If your team isn’t carrying the case, it must be flushed out and retrieved before it’s too late. Once one team reaches the score limit by controlling and owning the briefcase, orders to execute a nuclear strike are confirmed, and the round is won… in a highly explosive manner! The first team to 200 score wins.

Combined Arms: Hardpoint

Everyone’s favorite king-of-the-hill mode gets even bigger in Combined Arms: Hardpoint. The rules are simple: two teams of 12 fight for ownership of the Hardpoint as it rotates throughout the map, earning points for time spent inside the zone.

Much like its 6v6 version, victory in Hardpoint goes to the first team to reach the score limit, or to the team with the highest score when time runs out. Miami also joins the Combined Arms map rotation in Season One, giving players a total of four 12v12 battlegrounds to choose from.

Season One for Black Ops Cold War and drops December 16th. Prop Hunt will be the first mode added, with Drop Kick and Combined Arms Hardpoint coming later in the season.

Here’s how to unlock Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 3’s fast-firing bolt action Sniper Rifle, the Swiss K31.

Swiss K31 in Cold War

Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 3 will be introducing a new sniper, the Swiss K31, so here’s how you can get your hands on this new bolt-action rifle.

Season 3 of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone has officially been revealed. On top of new maps and Operators, players can bolster their arsenal with new weapons – the legendary Ballistic Knife, classic PPSH, and the all-new Swiss K31 Sniper Rifle.

The Swiss K31 follows Season 2’s ZRG 20mm Sniper Rifle, but appears to be the polar opposite. While the ZRG is heavy, powerful, and slow, the K31 is described as having “exceptional accuracy, as well as fast rechamber and aiming speeds with a large ammo capacity.”

Here’s how to unlock this new, fast Sniper Rifle in Cold War and Warzone Season 3.

Players can get their hands on the Swiss K31 Sniper Rifle by simply reaching Tier 31 in the Season 3 Battle Pass. And if you miss out on it in Season 3, it will be available later through a challenge.

You don’t have to pay anything either. The weapon is included as part of the free version of the Battle Pass, so simply play games, rack up Scorestreaks, score Warzone Victories, and you’ll have your hands on it in no time.

This is the second weapon you’ll unlock in the Battle Pass, as the PPSH will be unlocked at Tier 15. These weapons aren’t all there is though as the Ballistic Knife will also be included when the season begins, likely locked behind a challenge.

Following Cold War’s integration with Warzone, the K31 will be available in both battle royale and multiplayer. The devs described how, “Aggressive sharpshooters will be in their element with this new rifle, whether it’s sniping out in the wilds of Warzone or pushing forward on objectives in Black Ops Cold War.”

The Kar98k has long dominated Warzone as the aggressive sniper, but it’s possible the Swiss K31 will take its spot in the sniping meta.

Cold War devs respond to issues with PlayStation 5 controller

If you’ve ever had issues connecting your PlayStation 5 controller to your PC to play Cold War, then this dev response should clear it up.

One of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s devs has cleared up an issue regarding the use of PlayStation 5 controllers on PC.

PCs are normally very accommodating when it comes to supporting different controllers. Whereas the conventional setup revolves around a comfy mouse and keyboard, most PCs allow users to mix and match.

In the same way that you can use a game controller to play CoD: Mobile, you can also play Black Ops Cold War using different PlayStation and Xbox controllers. However, a complaint about the use of PS5 controllers on the PC version has prompted a response from Treyarch.

Treyarch Community Manager Josh “FoxhoundFPS” Torres is a reliable source of feedback who regularly engages with the player base to assist with any persistent matters to do with CoD: Cold War.

He recently engaged in a back-and-forth with a Black Ops Cold War player who was dissatisfied about the game’s reported inability to cater for PlayStation 5 controllers.

The original question asked, “Will you guys ever fix controller input on PC? Trying to use my PS5 controller on Cold War but it won’t let me change it. It’s locked.”

An ensuing exchange took place to try and reach the bottom of things until Josh found out some vital information regarding PS5 controllers on PC.

So for the time being, PC players are unable to play CoD: Black Ops Cold War using a PlayStation 5 controller.

We are still only a few months removed from the release of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, so it’s understandable if additional controller compatibility hasn’t been at the top of the priority list.

It’s safe to assume that by raising this query, PC players with PS5 access can expect to be able to use their PS5 controllers on PC sooner rather than later now. In the meantime, CoD players can still enjoy the new Season 3 content in the normal way.

A returning legend is coming to Season 3 of Black Ops Cold War with the PP-SH41. The devastating SMG can rip enemies apart in seconds, and these are the unlock requirements for it in Call of Duty.

It’s almost like Christmas Day when the next season of content is announced for Call of Duty. After the official Roadmap for Season 3 was revealed, one tasty proposition is the forthcoming return of the PPSH.

The SMG has tore up CoD games for years with its insanely-high rate of fire, and it could be a legitimate meta-changer for Cold War and Warzone Season 3.

PPSH-41 unlock requirements in Cold War & Warzone Season 3

As with every new Season of modern Call of Duty games, we usually get a new gun or two, new maps, and a new Battle Pass to complete.

Nothing has changed in this regard for Season 3, and players will be pleased to know that the PPSH can be in their loadouts very quickly.

To unlock the PPSH-41, players will simply need to reach Level 15 in the Battle Pass. Don’t want to pay for the Battle Pass? Not a problem because just like with the MAC-10 from Season 1 and FARA-83 from Season 2, the PPSH is a free Tier for players to earn naturally.

There are no pay-to-win elements here, and everyone will be able to unlock and use the SMG when they’ve reached the required level.

Also, because the same XP is tied to both Cold War and Warzone, the good news is that you can unlock the PPSH-41 on either game. So you can pick your poison and choose which game will be easier for you to get to Level 15 quicker.

The PPSH-41 has featured in many previous Call of Duty games including the original titles, World at War, and most recently, the Black Ops titles.

Season 3 of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone will go live on April 22, and players can get stuck into unlocking the PPSH-41 as soon as possible!
