Black Ops Cold War & Warzone Menu Integration for Season 1 revealed

Published

on

Activision has detailed the menu integration for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.

The company released a new blog post detailing how the menu will update to include Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War content.

Starting with Season One on December 16, all 80+ weapons and blueprints of Black Ops Cold War will become available in Call of Duty: Warzone.

A new progression system will arrive in Call of Duty: Warzone that will match Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The progressions will be synced across the games, including Modern Warfare.

The team is also making changes to the menus of Warzone, including a new Career tab, updates to the Barracks tab, and more.

Get the full details on the integration from the Call of Duty Blog:

With Season One incoming, Black Ops Cold War will be even more integrated into Warzone, bringing its available weapon total to 80+ individual primary and secondaries and Operators to 50+ just off what was available already in Black Ops Cold War. Furthermore, a new progression system and more will add plenty to explore on top of everything that the free-to-play online experience has offered since its launch.

Most of the Black Ops Cold War Operators have been playable within Warzone, giving you a small taste of what’s to come in Black Ops Cold War Season One. This is everything that you can expect when that happens, working across each part of the main Warzone menu:

Play – Familiar Modes and the New Experience

Dropping into Warzone for Season One will be done in a similar fashion to all prior seasons: from the Play menu.

Here, you can choose to play one of the featured playlists, including those that have to do with the new experience coming in Season One, as well as jump into a Private Match, Practice Modes, or Trials from Modern Warfare®.

Weapons – The Full Black Ops Cold War Arsenal, Fine Tuned for Warzone

Next let’s talk about what’s coming to your loadouts.

In Season One, weapons from Black Ops Cold War’s launch – from the Knife to the LW3 – Tundra sniper rifle and every primary and secondary weapon in between – will be added into Warzone and fine-tuned to best perform within this free-to-play experience. This includes:

·      Five Assault Rifles

·      Five Submachine Guns

·      Four Marksman (Tactical) Rifles

·      Three Light Machine Guns

·      Three Sniper Rifles

·      Three Pistols

·      Two Shotguns

·      Three Launchers (including the Special Launcher)

·      One Melee Weapon

In addition, throughout Season One expect to obtain additional free-to-acquire weapons via the free tiers of the Battle Pass system and in-game Challenges.

Maxed out your weapon in Black Ops Cold War? Bring all of its attachments into the Warzone. Otherwise, play with these weapons in Warzone to unlock its attachments in both games thanks to shared progression.

All attachments unlocked for Black Ops Cold War weapons will be available through the Gunsmith, allowing you to modify the weapon for use within Warzone. That doesn’t even count the free weapons included in the Season One Battle Pass system, any additional weapons to be released in Warzone or Black Ops Cold War, or the current and future Blueprint variants of these weapons.

For more intel on how these weapons will be integrated, visit our Future of Warzone blog here.

Operators – Two New Free Mil-Sim Choices, More Operators to Come

At the start of Season One, expect the Mil-Sim Operators Song (NATO) and Vargas (Warsaw Pact) to become available in Warzone. All of the other launch-day Black Ops Cold War Operators are already available in Warzone, providing you unlock any necessary challenges related to them.

That brings the total number of available Operators past the half century mark for Season One. In other words, you’ll be able to choose or randomly shuffle between 50+ unique Operators, not including any future Black Ops Cold War Operators that will simultaneously appear in Warzone or any additional Warzone Operators to come.

Career – New Progression System

This new menu in Warzone is where you’ll track your progression from the Military Ranks to each Season’s levelling journey.

When Season One drops, expect your level to synchronize across all three titles based on your current Military Rank or Prestige Level. Players who have advanced past the Military Ranks will begin the new season at Season Level 1. Note that all your previous unlocks from Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare (such as Weapons, Perks, Scorestreaks, or Killstreaks) remain unlocked.

After rising through the Military Ranks by earning XP across any of the three games, you’ll advance to the Season Levels, a brand-new system that includes new Prestige Levels and Prestige Icons from the world of Black Ops.

Challenges – Pick Up Where You Left Off

Haven’t earned your 400th Battle Royale victory or your 300th game of Plunder yet? Left a few Missions from previous seasons incomplete?

Don’t worry. All Mastery Challenges and Missions from prior seasons can still be completed as normal. You can find them still living in the Challenges tab alongside your Daily Challenges.

Again, those that can complete them all can consider themselves true Warzone masters, but you can take all the time – and infils – you need to get them done.

Barracks – Customize Your Player Profile

Because Career is the new home for all Progression-related menus, the Barracks is now solely dedicated to your Player Profile.

Here, you can find all the Calling Cards and Emblems that are carried over from Black Ops Cold War, as well as the option to customize Gestures & Sprays and put on a Clan or Regiment Tag. Furthermore, the Barracks will house your Records from Warzone, including the Leaderboards and various Commendations you earned while playing the game.

Battle Pass and Store – Content Across Black Ops Cold War and Warzone

In Season One, there will be a new Battle Pass with 100 tiers of content and plenty of bundles in the Store. Nearly all these items can be used in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, including the new weapons that are available for free within the Season One Battle Pass System.

There is one main exception to this rule: vehicle skins. Because Black Ops Cold War and Warzone do not share vehicles, this content will be separated between the two games.

In the Battle Pass System, specific tiers will offer two skins: one for a vehicle in Black Ops Cold War and another for a vehicle inside Warzone. As for Store bundles, Black Ops Cold War vehicle skins will be included as a bonus on top of all content that is available in both games, such as Weapon Blueprints and Operator skins.

Best UGR loadout for Black Ops Cold War

The UGR is a brand-new SMG in Black Ops Cold War, so here’s our best compelte with Attachments, Perks, and Equipment.

Best UGR loadout in UGR

The UGR is a brand-new SMG in Black Ops Cold War, and players can’t wait to try it out in multiplayer matches. Here’s our breakdown of the best UGR loadout to run in BOCW.

Even though CoD Vanguard is now in its third season, and Modern Warfare 2 is arriving this year, support for Black Ops Cold War is still going strong. After a huge Zombies patch on April 25, Treyarch have now added a remastered version of the Jungle map, as well as a new weapon.

The UGR SMG is an interesting close-range option, as it’s an “underwater rifle modified for improved land performance.” It doesn’t have the bullet velocity to take enemies out at distance, but it’s formidable in close-quarters combat.

If you’re looking to run it in multiplayer, you’ll need to know how to make the most of it. Check out our best UGR loadout for Black Ops Cold War.

Best Cold War UGR loadout attachments

Operator underwater using UGR
  • Barrel: 12.8″ VDV Reinforced
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Magazine: Explosive Flechettes
  • Handle: GRU Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock

We kick things off with the 12.8″ VDV Reinforced Barrel to seriously boost the UGR’s bullet velocity and damage range. The UGR is severely lacking in both departments, but this attachment makes it far more competitive in longer-range battles.

Next up, we went for the Spetsnaz Grip to keep the recoil in check and make it far easier to control. Then we chose KGB Skeletal Stock and GRU Elastic Wrap for a decrease in sprint-to-fire time and ADS speed, allowing you to get shots earlier while rushing around the map.

Many were surprised to see that the UGR comes with explosive rounds, so we couldn’t resist equipping Explosive Flechettes to our loadout. Aside from the obvious boost in overall damage, they also increase ammo capacity which is vital in a fast-firing weapon.

Best Cold War UGR Perk & Equipment

Flak Jacket Perk in BOCW
  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket & Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Scavenger & Assassin
  • Perk 3: Ghost & Ninja
  • Lethal Equipment: Semtex
  • Tactical Equipment: Stimshot

We think the UGR is still effective with only five attachments, so we’re equipping Greed Wildcard to use extra Perks in each slot in BOCW multiplayer matches,

Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask are incredibly important in the first slot, as they’ll keep you protected from incoming explosives and Gas Mines, which can be frustrating when running and gunning.

Next, we picked Scavenger to make sure you never run out of ammo, as well as Assassin to keep the Scorestreaks rolling in. In the final slot, we recommend Ghost to stay invisible on enemy radars, as well as Ninja to help with flanking, which you’ll want to do a lot of with the UGR.

In terms of equipment, Semtex is an easy-to-use lethal, while Stimshot will give you a handy health boost when things get tough out there.

How to unlock UGR in Black Ops Cold War

UGR in Warzone

To unlock the UGR SMG, players must kill an enemy revealed by their Spy Plane, UAV, or Field Mic with an SMG in 15 different completed matches. If you’re not a big multiplayer fan, it can be earned in Zombies by eliminating 1000 enemies while using an Epic rarity or better SMG.

You can also bypass the challenges altogether if you don’t mind spending 2,400 CoD Points on the new Lazar bundle.

Best alternatives to Cold War’s UGR

Black Ops Cold War has some powerful SMGs if the UGR isn’t working for you. The TEC-9 and LC10, in particular, remain incredibly strong in multiplayer matches and rank as two of the best weapons in the entire game.

How to unlock UGR SMG in Cold War & Warzone

Here’s everything you need to know about the new UGR SMG including how to unlock the weapon in Cold War and Warzone.

UGR unlock Warzone cold war

Treyarch continue to release new weapons for Cold War and the latest is the UGR SMG based on the APS underwater rifle that will be making its way to both Cold War and Warzone. Here’s how to unlock the UGR in Cold War and Warzone.

Although Vanguard is now in Season 3 and 2022’s Modern Warfare 2 has been announced, Treyarch are still releasing content for 2020’s Black Ops Cold War. Alongside a ton of Zombies changes that arrived with the April 25 update, Treyarch confirmed the classic Jungle map and a brand-new weapon would arrive in the “coming weeks.”

On May 6, the new UGR SMG made its way to the game alongside a remastered version of the Jungle map. Here’s how to unlock the UGR in Cold War and Warzone.

UGR SMG in Cold War & Warzone

Those who played Call of Duty: Ghosts may recognize Cold War’s new UGR SMG as it’s based on the APS underwater rifle that appeared in the campaign. The in-game description says it’s a “full-auto submachine gun” and an “underwater rifle modified for improved land performance.”

The weapon is projectile-based with quite a low bullet velocity, so you won’t be beaming enemies at range with ease. Players were also surprised to see that it comes with explosive bullets.

How to unlock UGR in Cold War & Warzone

Players can unlock the UGR by killing an enemy revealed by your Spy Plane, UAV, or Field Mic with an SMG in 15 different completed matches. You can also unlock the UGR in Zombies if you eliminate 1000 enemies while using an Epic rarity or better SMG.

The new UGR SMG has the same unlock challenge for both Cold War and Warzone, so it’ll be up to you to decide which game you’d like to complete it in. In addition, you can also receive the UGR straight away by purchasing the new Lazar bundle for 2,400 CoD Points.


The Nikita AVT and M1916 have also arrived in Warzone with Season 3, so you can check out how to unlock the new Assault Rifle and Marksman Rifle.

Treyarch confirm Jungle map remaster & new weapon arriving in Black Ops Cold War

Black Ops Cold War devs Treyarch have confirmed a new long-range weapon and Jungle map remaster coming soon.

Published

Captain Price in Black Ops jungle map

Treyarch have confirmed brand-new content is on the way for Black Ops Cold War, including a new weapon and remastered version of the classic Jungle map.

While Black Ops Cold War’s seasons have ended, the Call of Duty title received additional content through an update in March, including the arrival of the WMD map and the Vargo 52 Assault Rifle.

Now, Treyarch have announced more new additions that they have planned for Black Ops Cold War in May and beyond, including a long-range weapon and a remastered version of a classic Call of Duty map.

Cold War Jungle map remaster release date

Treyarch confirmed that the remastered Jungle map will make its way to Black Ops Cold War on Friday, May 6. The new map hit the game at 10:00 AM PT / 1:00 PM ET / 6:00 PM UK.

Treyarch originally confirmed their plans for brand-new Call of Duty content in a blog post on April 14, including the addition of the classic map Jungle. When the map hits the game on May 6, players will be able to jump into a Jungle 24/7 playlist.

When this map first made its debut, it consisted of a ruined village and military base near a river in the middle of a Vietnamese jungle. Players could take advantage of its many slopes and ladders to move quickly between levels.

Jungle won over players with its impressive layout and was added to other CoD titles like Black Ops III and Black Ops 4. Now, a remastered version will be added to Cold War’s standard 6v6 playlists in a new update.

Treyarch also teased the arrival of an “all-new ranged weapon” that players will be able to use in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. This new weapon arrived alongside Jungle on May 6.

Adding new weapons often shakes up the meta of CoD titles, so we can expect major changes after this new content drop arrives.


For more Black Ops Cold War, be sure to check out Treyarch confirming that Cold War won’t receive more Zombies maps as well as the leaked Scythe weapon and its unlock requirements.
