New Cold War Sai weapon exploit lets Zombies players skip doors

Black Ops Cold War players have discovered an exploit with the Sai melee weapon that lets them skip doors in Zombies mode.

A new exploit has been discovered with Black Ops Cold War’s new Sai melee weapon which lets players skip through the first door in the Firebase Z map in Zombies.

Black Ops Cold War Zombies received some new content in the Season 5 Reloaded update, including a new Black Chest World Event in Outbreak, a Rampage Inducer for round-based maps, and a brand-new weapon.

A new melee weapon called the Sai became available for players as part of The Numbers event. Now, players have discovered that this weapon actually lets them skip through doors in Zombies mode.

Various players reported being able to go through the first door at Firebase Z while they had the Sai equipped. This led to a response from lead developer Mark Maestas, who was well aware of the situation.

Surprisingly, the developer talked about this exploit with enthusiasm. “Dear Zombies players, yes you can skip the first door in Firebase Z,” tweeted Maestas. “Zombies can come and greet you too. GLHF!”

While these kinds of things are often addressed in update patches, Mark’s response makes it seem like the developers aren’t currently planning on doing anything to fix this exploit.

With this exploit, players will be able to access greater levels of Zombies much quicker than before, and the undead will be able to come to them as well.

It’s possible that the developers are going to avoid fixing this one exploit so that they can focus on fixing the Zombies’ pathfinding instead, ensuring that the exploit doesn’t ruin the game.

With so many Prestige levels, different weapon levels, and Battle Pass levels in Cold War and Warzone in Season 5, 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.

Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 5 has already offered Double XP since it started, allowing players to level up the various aspects of the game faster. It’s now time for another one where players will be able to level up all of the new content at a much faster pace.

How to get Double XP in CoD: Cold War & Warzone Season 5

It’s been announced that Call of Duty’s next Double Weapon XP promotional event will be for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War and will officially start on September 24 and conclude on September 27.

This event will help players earn plenty of extra XP to level up during Season 5 of the popular Call of Duty games.

What time does CoD: Cold War & Warzone Double XP start?

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

  • EST – 1:00 PM
  • CST – 12:00 PM
  • PST – 10:00 AM
  • GMT – 5:00 PM

These special Double XP Events usually occur during a weekend, as it naturally gives players the most free time as it’s away from school hours and generally when people are off work.

This will be a great way to level up the new Season 5 Battle Pass to earn the new TEC-9 SMG and EM2 Assault Rifle weapons and get them ready to use in all of your future Cold War and Warzone battles.

Best AK-47 loadout for CoD: Cold War Season 5

The AK-47 Assault Rifle is extremely powerful in Cold War Season 5, and these are the attachments and Perks to make the perfect loadout.

Published

on

cod cold war ak-47

As with every Call of Duty game, the AK-47 is a tank of an Assault Rifle with some exciting but manageable recoil. Here is how you can make the best Cold War AK-47 loadout in Season 5.

In a game primarily defined by the strength of its SMGs such as the TEC-9 and LC10, Cold War does boast some quality Assault Rifles with a quick time-to-kill. You’ll need some awesome firepower in Season 5.

The firepower of the AK-47 has never been in question, and it has become even more powerful as the season progress. Following Season 5 Reloaded, the AK remains one of the best choices available, and our AK-47 loadout will see to the choppy recoil and make the gun a great addition to your loadout.

Best AK-47 loadout attachments for Cold War Season 5

  • Muzzle: Suppressor
  • Barrel: 20″ Liberator
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Magazine: 40 Rnd
  • Handle: GRU Elastic Wrap

Given how potent the AK-47 is on its own in Black Ops Cold War, we think you’ll only need five attachments, so we would recommend selecting Perk Greed as a Wildcard.

The AK-47 has pretty clean iron sights, so you’re safe to leave the irons and add a barrel attachment instead. We recommend the 20″ Liberator for an all-important boost to its bullet velocity. Buffs in Cold War Season 5 also reduced the Suppressors bullet velocity penalty, so it’s well worth using on your AK-47.

One of the biggest things we’re trying to secure for the AK is its accuracy and recoil, and the Spetsnaz Grip is one of the most significant ways to lock it down. The GRU Elastic Wrap offers a healthy boost to ADS to improve its speed and mobility, and the 40 Rnd mag allows us some spare shots.

Best Perks to run with the AK-47 in Cold War Season 5

  • Perk 1: Tactical Mask & Flak Jacket
  • Perk 2: Assassin & Gearhead
  • Perk 3: Ghost & Gung-Ho

With Perk Greed, you have six options to choose. The AK-47 is strong at all distances, especially with the extra bullet velocity the barrel provides.

Tactical Mask will prevent non-lethal equipment from disrupting you, and Flak Jacket provides the usual immunity to explosives – a regular occurrence in Cold War.

Assassin is fantastic for extra points, and Quartermaster lets you use more equipment to stop people sneaking up on you.

Ghost is a universally loved perk that hides you from radar, and Gung-Ho is useful for extra mobility and a quick weapon switching if your ammo runs dry.

The AK-47 was last directly buffed back in Season 4 when its Suppressor attachments’ behavior was changed.

AK-47

  • Reduced range penalty on Suppressor muzzle attachment from 15% to 13%.
  • Increased range penalty on GRU Suppressor muzzle attachment from 25% to 27%

How to unlock the AK-47 in Cold War

The AK-47 hasn’t been added mid-game like the FARA or the monstrous Streetsweeper, so the unlock requirements are easy.

Reach Level 7, and you’ll be using be brandishing this classic weapon in no time at all.

Best alternatives to Cold War’s AK-47

If you feel that the AK-47 isn’t for you, give our LC10 loadout a try to see if mobility and an exhilarating rate of fire are for you. Or, you could use the ever-powerful Krig 6 to dominate enemies over range.

You can check out where the AK-47 ranks amongst the other guns in our Black Ops Cold War Season 5 weapons tier list.
