COD Points have become an integral part of Call of Duty games as they can buy some great items for you to show off. So here’s a quick guide to tell you how much points cost, how you can buy them, where you can spend them, and what you can get.
The gaming landscape has changed over the years with the incorporation of microtransactions and live-gaming services. Many games offer extra content – with cosmetics being a big proponent of this. Call of Duty offers its own huge palette of extra goodies you can add to your game and requires COD Points to do so.
So with our detailed guide today we’re going to run through the basics of COD Points to help you understand them, tell you what they do, and more.
What is the price of COD Points?
There are different amounts and bundles you can opt for when buying COD Points that are tailored to different needs.
Some players just need to top up their account with a few hundred points to get the latest bundle. Whereas some need a big restock with the intention of spending many points. The more points you want, the bigger the discounts grow.

What can I buy with COD Points?
Call of Duty’s currency is used to primarily buy two things: the Battle Pass for the current season and Bundles containing a variety of items.
A Battle Pass is a paid Tier system that allows regular players to earn dozens of extra rewards and cosmetics for essentially playing the game.
Black Ops Cold War and Warzone are currently in Season Two of their respective lifecycles at the moment. Both titles are currently running in tandem with each other and share the same Battle Pass.
It features 100 Tiers for players to smash their way through the course of Season 2, and if players are committed enough, they can actually earn enough COD Points, through leveling up the pass, to get the next one for free.
You can buy the Cold War & Warzone Season 2 Battle Pass via a couple of different methods:
- Purchase it from the Official Call of Duty website
- Buy it from the in-game store on your respective platform
The other main content you can buy is a wide range of Bundles and Operator Bundles. These special bundles vary in price, and each comes with its own unique items.
The collectibles you can expect to find are Calling Cards, Emblems, Operator Skins, Weapon Blueprints, Weapon Charms, and more.

5 best Call of Duty games ever ranked: Full tier list
We’ve gone through every single Call of Duty game ever and created a full tier list of them all, and then ranked our top 5 as well.
We’ve taken the difficult task of sifting through every CoD game ever, and not only are we compiling a full tier list of every game, but we are ranking our top five as well.
It’s been nearly 20 years since Call of Duty released in 2003 and what a journey it has been. The franchise has explored many different eras in history and undergone countless changes. However, when you release so many games, some are bound to become lost, and some become legendary.
So it’s time to dig through a history of Call of Duty games to assign them our verdict and then select the absolute cream of the crop – and rank them.

Call of Duty: Best games tier list
So many factors have gone into the decision-making process here such as the game’s respective campaigns, multiplayer, side modes, themes, guns, and a lot more. With all this in mind, we were able to grade each game.
Here is our Official tier list of all of Black Ops Cold War’s weapons:
- S-Tier: CoD 4: Modern Warfare, CoD: World at War, CoD: Modern Warfare 2, CoD: Black Ops, CoD: Modern Warfare (2019)
- A-Tier: CoD: Classic, CoD: Modern Warfare 3, CoD: Black Ops 2
- B-Tier: CoD 2, CoD 3, CoD: Advanced Warfare, CoD: Black Ops 3, CoD: Black Ops 4, CoD: Black Ops Cold War
- C-Tier: CoD: Ghosts, CoD: Infinite Warfare, CoD: WW2
Just to explain the system, our S-Tier games are the must-have, must-have played CoD titles, the A-Tier are superb CoD games that were just missing a certain something, B-Tier games are decent CoD games with some redeeming qualities, and C-Tier Call of Duty games just didn’t cut it for us.
Ranking the Best Call of Duty games of all time
5. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019
Modern Warfare yet again redefined the Call of Duty franchise, giving players one of the most polished and detailed Call of Duty titles ever created. It encompassed all that had made the series great to this point and made it feel as crisp as ever.
The campaign reintroduced classic characters, interspersed with memorable new ones, and a new storyline. The fresh but familiar feeling was sprinkled with an unsettling terrorist attack in Picadilly Circus, fights through a burning mine, and other horrifying scenes.
For multiplayer, animations were fine-tuned and weapons were overhauled to feel powerful in the hands of every player. We got exhilarating new modes such as Cyber Attack and even got the return of the much-loved Spec Ops Mode.
In March of 2020, Activision released Modern Warfare’s Warzone mode, a 150 player battle royale – which was an instant hit. It since become one of the premier experiences for battle royale with Warzone now well into its second season.
4. Call of Duty: World At War
With the evolution of the Call of Duty engine during the development of CoD 4: Modern Warfare, Treyarch had the opportunity to make the most detailed World War 2 shooter experience yet. The first three Call of Duty games are rather unheralded compared to anything post CoD 4, but World at War restored that feeling and improved on it.
World At War delivered a chilling ride across the Pacific Theatre and Russian front. Gore mechanics made the game feel visceral and real, making the experience much more intense and realistic. The game’s fabulous campaign crescendos into an incredible final stretch, storming the Reichstag.
The multiplayer was a great extension of the new formula the series had discovered and transferred all those properties to World at War. The most incredible aspect of World at War though has to be the sleeper-hit, now must-have feature, Nazi Zombies.
The addition of Nacht Der Untoten, a post-campaign mini-game, revolutionized the multiplayer experience even more. The mode received three more maps through DLC and has been continued in every Treyarch Call of Duty game since.
3. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Needless to say, the anticipation and excitement of a Modern Warfare sequel reached unprecedented heights. The follow-up more than surpassed expectations by delivering another jaw-dropping campaign featuring iconic figures like Captain Price, Commander Shepard, Ghost, and a playable Soap. The game become notorious for its “No Russian” mission and other controversial moments.
The multiplayer formula was in full-swing now and Modern Warfare 2 introduced a brand new set of 15 selectable killstreak rewards – including the game-changing nuke. Maps like Terminal and Rust would go onto be celebrated in CoD folklore, and the era of the 360 no-scope was born.
If all this wasn’t enough, we also got “Special Ops”, a mode for 1-2 players that recreated and expanded upon many scenarios from the first two Modern Warfare games, and challenged the players to get maximum stars.
2. Call of Duty: Black Ops
Instead of doing a direct sequel to World at War like Infinity Ward was doing with Modern Warfare, Treyarch slapped on a new title: “Black Ops”.
In order to bring a unique experience, they set their first Black Ops game during the Vietnam era. In the Campaign, players would be part of an elite squad working alongside the CIA in covert operations around the globe. We got the historic “What do the numbers mean?” and the return of fan-favorite Viktor Reznov – played by Gary Oldman.
Zombies delivered another round, or 100, of intense undead-killing action, and introduced another new concept to the series in the form of Dead Ops. A top-down, arcade twin-stick shooter with power-ups, up to 4 players, and hours of fun.
The multiplayer front continued to deliver months of unforgettable action with a litany of unmistakable maps: including one of the most divisive maps in Call of Duty history – Nuketown.
1. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
The game that started it all and began a revolution in the first-person shooter industry. After years of companies generally churning out different variations of World War games, Infinity Ward ripped up the playbook and started from scratch with a hot new take on the modern-day conflict.
The campaign was one spellbinding encounter after another taking the player on a violent journey of death, destruction, and even nuclear devastation. The one-two salvo of All Ghillied Up and One Shot, One Kill is as good as two missions come in an FPS game, and it all culminates in breathtaking fashion.
Even more remarkable than Soap’s fruit-killing skills is the way in which Infinity Ward single-handedly reshaped online multiplayer as we know it. Seamlessly blending together class systems, satisfying weaponry, all-time great maps, and more.
The game would cement Call of Duty as one of the most successful video game franchises in history and is still hotter than ever thanks to Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
