Cold War glitch removes bushes from Cartel and players love it

Bushes have long been a complaint from the Black Ops Cold War community, and one lucky player got a taste for the map without them.

Published

on

A glitch in Black Ops Cold War removed the bushes in Cartel for one lucky player, and the community agrees that it’s a major improvement.

The bushes in the center of the map Cartel have been an issue since the Cold War Beta. Dense foliage surrounds the B flag, completely conceals prone players, and leads to easy eliminations on unsuspecting enemies.

This makes pushing the B flag on Domination extremely high risk. Due to this, much of the action on Cartel occurs in the hangar and down by the river on either side of the map.

One lucky user encountered a glitch where the bushes had vanished.

Trimming the hedges

Reddit user ‘CapAustria‘ shared a glitch they experienced in-game, which removed all the bushes from the map’s center.

The glitch only lasted for one game, and the bushes were only hidden at certain angles. This was likely due to textures failing to load-in, rather than a sneak peek at an upcoming update.

This post quickly gained traction on Reddit, with all of the top comments stating how much of an improvement this is compared to how the map currently looks. Although flashlight attachments help to spot players hiding in the foliage, most agree the map would be vastly improved without the bushes.

Players were concerned that removing the bushes, would create too much open space. With a sniper tower overlooking the center of the map, this would make the area even more of a ‘No Man’s Land.’

Instead, there is actually quite a bit of cover in the area that’s usually concealed by the foliage. In the screenshots, we can see hay bales, a wheelbarrow, and barrels dotted around this location.

With player visibility being a common complaint in Black Ops Cold War, it’s likely that trimming or removing the bushes would go down well with the community.

Top 5 tips to help you beat Zombies Dead Ops in Black Ops Cold War

Having trouble surviving in the Dead Ops mode in Cold War? These five tips will help save your life.

Published

on

The grossly underrated Dead Ops mode is back for a third go in BOCW. The twin-stick mayhem has returned and brings with it a new map of goodies and gadgets to make things fun. But in order to win, you’ll need to know these 5 top tips to beat Dead Ops 3 in Black Ops Cold War.

After originally debuting back in CoD: Black Ops I, Dead Ops has seen limited use, with its only other appearance arriving in BLOPS2.

Thankfully, Treyarch has changed this with Black Ops: Cold War. To successfully overcome its challenge, you’ll have to battle your way through countless waves of zombies and creatures. To get you off on the right foot immediately, we have some essential advice you should heed.

Top five tips

If you’re in a rush and want a quick-fix to help you beat Dead Ops, these are the must-know tips to get you going straight away.

They’ll teach you about teamwork, what to do, and most importantly what NOT to do.

Tip #1 – Always keep track of your teammates

It’s amazing that after all these years of team-based online gaming, players will still forget their allies’ presence. Don’t do this in Dead Ops! They need you, and you need them. Forget dashing after treasure to score yourself a quick buck; see if your compatriot is being surrounded.

You can also help by allowing them to have better weapons. If you look deep inside yourself, you’ll know your ability in this kind of game. If it clearly exceeds those around you, then maybe stick to the base weapon and allow them to grab most of the helper tools.

Teamwork makes the dream work, after all.

Tip #2 – Ignore the first-person pickup

It’s awful. The only redeeming quality it has is that it can help you find bonus rooms a bit easier – you can still find them normally with some intuition.

First-person may seem cool at first, but this mode isn’t designed for it. When you’re being attacked from all directions, you need to be able to see everything in a tight space.

Avoid. Avoid. Avoid.

Tip #3 – Don’t keep pointlessly firing weapon drops

If you feel you do need weapon pickups, then manage your use of them. They are very limited, and their scarce ammo needs to be conserved. For instance, you’ve picked up an RPG, a horde of zombies flood through one of the level’s openings, and you start unloading at them.

This will naturally help your cause, but there is an inevitable stopping point where the supply of dead goons ends. Yet you’re still firing your weapon and wasting precious ammo that could make or break your life in the round.

Tip #4 – Bomb effectively and boost sensibly

During the course of a Dead Ops 3 run, you’re going to accumulate a hefty supply of bombs and boosts. There will be plenty to spare…early on. That arsenal of power-ups will diminish quicker than a roadrunner evading a coyote.

Bombs should be an emergency escape method, nothing else. If you’re 99.99% sure you’re going to die, do it. They’re also great for Totem heads and bosses. Again, as for boosting, use this as a last-ditch recovery action to save yourself from an early grave. They’re both plentiful but finite.

Tip #5 – Don’t get cornered

The importance of this tip cannot be understated. If you’re new to the concept of Dead Ops and top-down, twin-stick shooters, then it’s important to grasp the fundamentals. If you’re in a nice open space, then you can afford to stand still a bit longer.

If the area is compact and contained, then you always need to have an exit strategy. Where will you go if you’re about to be cornered? Do you have enough supplies to escape? Is there a teammate near you that can help? These are all ways to stop yourself from getting isolated, cornered, and killed – repeatedly.

There you go, five top tips to beat Dead Ops 3 in Black Ops: Cold War. They will serve you in good stead and definitely increase your playtime.
