The latest news ahead of the BOCW Season One launch is a returning mode for players who like the more casual Call of Duty game modes.
Recently, we’ve seen a non-stop torrent of new details about Treyarch‘s upcoming Season One launch for Black Ops Cold War. And it appears to show no signs of easing up either.
Thanks to some bits and pieces that have made their way to the internet, we’ve been able to ascertain the specifics about a new game mode on the way.
Give them big props
An endless night of Call of Duty can see a player reel off game upon game of Team Deathmatch, Hardpoint, Search & Destroy, and Domination. The bloodshed, the scorestreaks, the damaged K/Ds, it’s all part and parcel of CoD.
But isn’t it nice to chill sometimes? Well, that’s definitely going to happen with BOCW’s returning mode. Season One is set to reintroduce Prop Hunt back to the game’s playlists and have various inanimate objects run wild on the game’s maps.
A well-known Call of Duty leaker ModernWarzone posted a tweet indicating that it was coming back.
Additionally, a YouTube video from How Are You ATVI has been uploaded by a CoD dataminer that reveals some voice lines for the game mode.
How to play Prop Hunt
If you’re unfamiliar with the amusing nature of Prop Hunt, you basically have two teams in the traditional 6 v 6 format. One team is attacking, and one team is…hiding.
The attackers need to work together and identify the props that the other team is disguised as. You’ll get intermittent hints that will point you in the right direction, and you merely need to inflict enough damage on the prop.
If you’re on the other team, you need to unleash your inner chair, lamp post, table, mannequin, and do your best to imitate the environment and blend in naturally. You’ll have a limited amount of flashes to stun and disorient your opponent, and you can also change your form a select amount of times too.
Prop Hunt is a bizarrely entertaining mode that provides a less serious take on Call of Duty and provides some comic relief and a break from online multiplayer seriousness.
Expect to see it when Season One launches on December 16.

How to freeze the timer in Black Ops Cold War’s Cranked Zombies mode
Cranked is BOCW’s speedy Zombies mode and requires the player to beat a timer. Here’s how you can freeze the timer in the Cranked game mode.
Black Ops Cold War Season 1 saw Cranked make its first appearance as a Zombies mode, and players have found a new glitch that freeze’s the timer mid-game.
The fresh Zombies mode is all about speed and fast-thinking. This is more apparent as a big timer is plastered on the screen, counting down, and constantly reminding you of this. To prevent the “Game Over” screen, you need to keep replenishing your time by scoring kills from the undead.
Though that sense of urgency can be forgotten about if you can enforce the timer glitch that’s been discovered. If performed correctly, the clock will permanently stop and give you all the time in the world to survive.
BOCW Cranked Zombies glitch
Content creator Caspahz has been able to find a way to make the timer one less enemy for yourself. It’s a simple and easy set of instructions that need to be followed and reap huge benefits.

Here are the steps you need to follow to pull this glitch off.
- Start a game of Cranked
- Keep playing until you earn enough resources to buy either a Cruise Missile or Chopper Gunner
- Wait for the timer to tick down until it gets to 3 seconds
- Then call in the streak
- Don’t eliminate any Zombies with it
- When the streak appears, the timer should now have disappeared
- You should now how an infinite amount of time to play how you want
You will now have free reign to take your time and take in the different parameters that Crank offers compared to traditional Zombies.
It’s good to see that Treyarch is continuing to support Zombies with a variety of content and the trend shows no signs of stopping. Forthcoming Zombies updates will see a new Fireteam map, new perks, and much more.

Easily finish Diamond camo for the M79 in Black Ops Cold War
A TikToker has discovered a way to easily achieve the Diamond camo on the M79 in Black Ops Cold War through a secret spot on Nuketown.
A TikTok video by North Texas shows players how to easily achieve gold camo on the M79 special launcher in Black Ops Cold War.
Launcher challenges in Black Ops Cold War are brutal and time-consuming. Often, they require perfect circumstances to achieve, and it can take several games to get the right conditions. In the previous Call of Duty titles, launchers would be time-consuming and difficult as well, but Black Ops Cold War is especially difficult.
Due to the low damage values and effectiveness of Flak Jacket, some launchers can take up to 3 shots to kill enemies in hardcore modes, which is problematic for obvious reasons. Players need to achieve longshots, double-kills, and even killstreaks to master each respective launcher.
One of the most difficult launchers in Black Ops Cold War is the M79. Luckily, a player has discovered a spot to get easy longshots and feeds with the weapon to expedite the tedious process.
It appears that TikToker North_Texas has found a spot on the A-Side spawn in Nuketown that makes longshots a breeze with the M79. If you position yourself precisely in the garden area, aim all the way up, and fire, you’ll send shots perfectly aimed at the B flag.
All kills will register as longshots due to the range from this area. You may even score some easy double-kills off spawn from players attempting to capture B. If enemies are using Flak Jacket, you still may get a kill with the next shot.
We recommend lobby-surfing for hardcore games with players who aren’t running Flak Jacket, as this will make the process much faster. After a few kills, players may enable the perk, so you can feel free to leave the game and try again in another lobby.
Black Ops Cold War player achieves insane feat of prestiging without killing anyone
One player has demonstrated incredible patience to prestige in Black Ops Cold War without killing even a single person in the game.
One dedicated Call of Duty player opted to prestige in Black Ops Cold War in a very unconventional way. They managed to achieve the maximum levels necessary without scoring even a single kill.
Call of Duty actively encourages its players to score as many kills as possible and offers all kinds of incentives for doing so. Playing the objective and cooperating with your team is encouraged also.
But the glory, and XP, is all in the kills.
So it seems remarkable that someone has been able to persevere for 37 hours of in-game time to achieve this, steering clear of any assist-giving damage and taking great care to avoid any accidental kills.
Prestiging without killing anyone in BOCW
People might wonder what the point of doing this is. At the end of the day, the person has paid for the game and can approach it however they want to. Plus, it’s a bit different, isn’t it?
We can imagine it was liberating for Reddit user Pilgore1 as they knew they could play each game without having to worry about maintaining their K/D. Plus, in certain modes, it was great news for their teammates as Pilgore1 primarily focused on taking down enemy scorestreaks and completing the objective.
One of the most eye-opening statistics was their Win/Loss record which was surprisingly high. It took 37 hours and 200 matches to prestige, but their final record was a positive 1.27 Win ratio.
Objectives and “Clearing the sky” were the keys to victory and you’d have to imagine they didn’t focus too much on Team Deathmatch and kill-heavy modes. Instead, opting for Hardpoint and other similar environments where hard work and grafting really pays off.
This probably isn’t everyone’s cup of tea in terms of enjoying Call of Duty, but you can’t argue how unique it is. They clearly weren’t too much of a burden to their teammates either with such a high W/L record too.
We’re not saying that everyone needs to stop camping in a corner for a Sentry Turret (you’ve all done it), but it just goes to show that people can find new ways to enjoy Black Ops Cold War.
