After the Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 4 reveal, players now call for the devs to bring back a fan-favorite Black Ops weapon.
With Season 4 being revealed, players are slightly disappointed that they are yet to see another classic Black Ops weapon make the cut.
Season 4 doesn’t seem to be bringing back any popular classic Black Ops weapons, apart from the MG 82 LMG, which isn’t really known as a fan favorite.
In light of this, some fans over on Reddit expressed their views towards which classic weapon from Black Ops they would also like to see make a return.
Classic Black Ops weapon fans want to see
Reddit user TheRealmUm posted an image of the Black Ops shotgun, the Olympia, with the caption:
“It’s almost the new season so I will say this again #bringbackolympia”
Fans in the comments responded in agreement, with one user saying:
“I agree completely, I feel like the olympia is a staple for black ops games.”
The Olympia is definitely a classic Black Ops weapon. With the Gallo already present, it only seems right to also add the Olympia, completing the set for the two most memorable Black Ops shotguns.
Some in the comments did disagree however, saying:
“I mean, it’d be a fun gun, but since Shotguns are secondaries it’d probably suck on drop or be too OP and then nerfed to the ground after drop (like the Streetsweeper). I still remember using it in BO1 and 3, it was very strong, almost always a one shot kill if you were in the right range.”
It’s true that the shotgun format is different in Cold War compared to the original Black Ops games, with shotguns now being secondary weapons. However, regardless of how strong it is, it would be great to see another classic weapon enter the game, especially if it came with a Dragon’s Breath attachment.

Black Ops Cold War players call for devs to add custom emblems
Some Black Ops Cold War players are asking the developers to introduce a fan-favorite system from previous Treyarch titles.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has done a pretty good job at making people feel nostalgic about previous Treyarch titles, but some players are now asking for the classic custom emblem system.
One thing Treyarch is yet to bring back to the series is the infamous custom emblems, which allowed players to create their own individual emblems to show off.
Reddit user AllergicToAnime put a post up expressing the wish for custom emblems to return while also giving their reasons.
Black Ops Cold War has taken on a seasonal format with its integration with Warzone. This means that players are given emblems in the season passes, which can be various things.
The argument is that these season pass emblems aren’t creative enough for players to express themselves, wanting more for player identification and customization.
Of course, the custom emblems from previous Black Ops games were fairly controversial, as players would often create things a little too explicit.
Some in the post’s comments are even against them returning, claiming that these custom emblems are a “double edged sword,” with some choosing to create inappropriate images.
However, the detail and creativity that players could get out of the mechanic were quite incredible, creating detailed pieces of art or even just simple personalized symbols.
However, there are also some in the comments who agree too, as one stated: “Those were the days man I used to love the custom emblems back in the day.”
Hopefully, if they do bring it back, they can moderate it and prevent people from using it for negativity.

Black Ops Cold War players want to see an Olympics-inspired weapon
Black Ops Cold War players have suggested Treyarch add a brand-new Olympics-themed weapon to celebrate the worldwide competition.
With the Olympics in full swing, Black Ops Cold War players have suggested Treyarch add some in-game items to celebrate the competition, namely a brand-new weapon.
After being postponed, Tokyo’s 2020 Olympics has finally begun. Call of Duty often releases items and hosts events to tie in with worldwide competitions and celebrations, such as 2020’s Games of Summer event and the soccer skins for the Euros.
A Black Ops Cold War fan has suggested that a new Olympics-inspired weapon would be the perfect fit for Call of Duty, and players are loving the idea.
Alongside the realistic firearms that make up Call of Duty’s arsenal, there are also some weird and wacky additions. For example, Cold War and Warzone Season 4 added a Nail Gun to take down your opponents with.
Reddit user bobbobaran suggested that the Biathlon Rifle should be added to the game to celebrate the Olympics. Although not the military-grade tool that CoD fans are used to, it’s no stranger than a Nail Gun.
The Biathlon Rifle is an ultra-lightweight bolt action rifle that’s used for target shooting in both the Summer and Winter Olympics. It fires .22LR rounds which are extremely common and used in a wide variety of weapons. While not as powerful as the ZRG 20mm, for example, Treyarch can adjust the stats to make it competitive.
Players were unsure what category this Olympics weapon could fall into – Special Weapon, Tactical Rifle, or Sniper Rifle? This would all depend on how it would be balanced. It could work as both a fast-firing quickscoping machine or a highly accurate long-range sniper.
Will we ever see the Biathlon Rifle in Call of Duty? It’s impossible to say. But at the very least, it could become a Blueprint for one of the existing Sniper Rifles.

Best QBZ-83 loadout for Black Ops Cold War Season 4
Lightweight and compact, the QBZ 83 is one of Cold War Season 4’s most understated weapons with the right loadout & attachments.
Season 4 of Black Ops Cold War has seen a number of weapons come to the forefront, and with the right attachments and perks, the QBZ-83 Assault Rifle can potentially hold its own.
Other guns have come into the fold to further broaden horizons with the outrageously powerful LC10 making a strong case for being the meta gun. With the right loadout and class setup, the QBZ can be the perfect gun for players looking to take on enemies at range, without sacrificing the ability to move around the map at speed.
Here’s everything you need to turn the QBZ-83 into a devasting weapon in your arsenal.
Best Cold War Season 4 QBZ-83 attachments
- Muzzle: Muzzle Brake 5.56
- Barrel: 13.7″ Cavalry Lancer
- Underbarrel: Foregrip
- Handle: Quickdraw Handle
- Stock: Tactical Stock
Pairing the Muzzle Brake 5.56 with the Foregrip is important for control, as this will reduce both the horizontal and vertical recoil and make it much easier to hit your shots.
With the QBZ-83 acting as a mobile AR, the Quickdraw Handle will be the perfect accessory to help you aim down sights quickly while you’re rotating around the map.
Finally, once you’ve found your target and started to fire, you’ll want to be able to keep your crosshairs on your enemy while you shoot. This is where the Tactical Stock comes in, as it improves the stability of the weapon.
Best perks to use with Cold War Season 4’s QBZ-83
- Perk 1: Tactical Mask
- Perk 2: Scavenger
- Perk 3: Ghost
Tactical Mask is a must in Black Ops Cold War, and with the QBZ-83 allowing you to move around the map faster than other Assault Rifle players, you’ll likely find yourself in the middle of stuns and flashes fairly regularly.
Scavenger is useful to keep your ammo replenished as the QBZ-83 has one of the faster rates of fire in its class, while Ghost will keep you hidden from enemies’ pesky UAVs.
How to unlock the QBZ-83 in Cold War Season 4
If you want to have a go with the QBZ-83, then you’ll simply need to reach Level 31, and it will become yours to equip.
Once you’ve done that, then you can go about unlocking every single attachment for it to equip the right ones for the job.
Best alternatives to Cold War’s QBZ-83 SMG
If you’ve experimented and feel like the QBZ-83 isn’t for you after all, then there are perfectly acceptable replacements should you need them.
That’s the QBZ-83 sorted for you in Black Ops Cold War’s multiplayer. Also, see our tier list of every weapon in Black Ops Cold War to see where we rank them all, and if you enjoy battle royale, then check out our ranking of every Warzone weapon.
