Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

PS5 & Black Ops Cold War top UK’s best-sellers chart for November



Treyarch’s newest Black Ops iteration has outsold every other new game for the month of November in the UK.

Black Ops Cold War is the #1 best selling game for November 2020 in UK, per GFK market data released on December 2.

The game beats out other huge titles, with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, FIFA 21 and Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales trailing behind at the second through fourth spot, respectively.

According to the data, the vast majority of sales for Black Ops Cold War were through digital purchases, with physical boxed copies being drastically less than usual due to the ongoing pandemic. Interestingly enough, while Call of Duty was the #1 selling title for November, Spider Man: Miles Morales was actually the best selling game on PlayStation 5.

The launch title was a large part of the PS5’s marketing, and it’s no surprise PlayStation fans went for copies of it with their initial console purchase.

In terms of game sales overall, interestingly the Nintendo Switch takes the top spot for most game sales for the month of November, most likely coming from Black Friday sales. Titles like Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Mario Kart 8 flew off the shelves.

For the physical hardware sales, PlayStation takes the #1 spot as the best selling console in the UK, followed by the heavily demanded Nintendo Switch system, which has kept that high demand since its launch in mid-2017. Microsoft’s Xbox is not mentioned in the data for this metric.

The launch of the new game systems also sparked a new demand for console accessories, which spiked 61.4% compared to the previous month, and jumped 48.3% when compared to November 2019.

The top selling accessories for the month were as follows

  • #1 – PS5 DualSense Controller
  • #2 – PS5 Pulse 3D Headset
  • #3 – PS4 Dualshock
  • #4/5 – Xbox Series X/S Controller (Shock Blue, Carbon Black)
  • #7 – PS5 Media Remote
  • #8 – Dual Sense charging Station
  • #9 – Xbox Series X/S Controller (Robot White)
  • #11 – PS5 HD Camera

The PlayStation brand dominates this chart with a wide variety of accessories, where the Xbox takes some slots, but all for extra custom colored controllers.

Additionally, the GfK also provided data for the top 20 selling games of November 2020, with Activision titles like Black Ops Cold War and Crash Bandicoot 4 holding the #1 and #20 spots.

Cold War’s Dark Aether camos & Gunsmith Customs coming soon to Warzone

Players looking to use their Dark Aether camos in Warzone are in luck, as support is coming.



Dark Aether in Black Ops Cold War

Raven Software has confirmed that Black Ops Cold War’s Dark Aether camos and Gunsmith Customs will be making their way to Call of Duty: Warzone. 

For Black Ops Cold War Zombies players, the Dark Aether camo is a true mark of skill and perseverance, with players tasked with unlocking every skin for every weapon, in every class. 

After going through all that effort, it’s no surprise that players wanted to be able to rock their Dark Aether camos in Warzone, something that so far has been impossible. 

However, the studio’s creative director Amos Hodge has confirmed that the team is hard at work on bringing support for Dark Aether camos to Call of Duty: Warzone. 

Treyarch first promised that support for these camos would arrive back in their Season 1 announcement blog post, but information on introduction has been minimal every since.

Raven has finally confirmed they plan to bring official support for Dark Aether camos to Warzone, but admitted that the studio would need more time to make it happen. 

Hodge explained that there is “a lot of work” still to be done in bringing Cold War’s Zombies camos to Warzone weapons because of the differences in how some weapons look and feel once those camos are applied. 

Raven also has confirmed they want to bring support to create and use Black Ops Cold War Gunsmith Customs weapons into Call of Duty: Warzone. Currently, Warzone only supports the feature with Modern Warfare weapons. 

Hodge stated that the team “will get there” with these features but more time is needed to ensure they’re brought to life. 

Unfortunately, Hodge didn’t provide a release date or a timeline for these features, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as the information becomes available.

How to unlock the FARA 83 in Warzone & Cold War Season 3

Find out how you can unlock the blistering FARA 83 Assault Rifle in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 3 with this handy guide.



Unlock Fara 83 Warzone Black Ops Cold War Season 3

Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 3 has hit the ground running with new content and weapon changes, including some improvements for the FARA 83 Assault Rifle. Our quick guide will show you how to unlock it.

The launch of a new season in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone is always an exciting prospect with major changes allowing new weapons to become the dominating meta. Season 3 is no different as the latest update for the franchise introduces some tweaks to the Fara 83 assault rifle to shake things up for those who unlock it or already have it unlocked.

These positive changes include a smoothed-out recoil pattern, a 17% increase to the gun’s maximum damage range, and a minimum damage increase from 25 to 26.

The changes above, combined with the high rate of fire and a nasty punch of the Fara 83, will certainly make it a valuable unlock for players during Season 3.

How to Unlock the FARA 83 in Warzone & Cold War Season 3

Previously, the Fara 83 assault rifle could only be unlocked by reaching tier 15 of last season’s Battle Pass. Unfortunately, this meant players who did not reach tier 15 would not have gotten a chance to add this weapon to their inventory.

Fortunately, Treyarch has added an array of new unlock challenges for weapons in the Zombies mode of Black Ops Cold War, including the Fara 83 assault rifle.

For you to unlock the FARA 83 in Zombies, you’ll need to kill 30 or more enemies consecutively without getting hit 25 times. Once you have accomplished this task, you will be rewarded with this powerful assault rifle that you can use in Warzone, Multiplayer, and Zombies.

Unlock Fara 83 Black Ops Cold War Warzone Season 3

Treyarch and Activision have usually tried to avoid pay-to-win situations and always make new weapons available for all players so that none are locked out and creating an unfair advantage.

This includes making older Battle Pass weapons available through challenges for players who did not play during that period of time.

There is no doubt that players will be satisfied with their choice if they take the time to unlock the Fara 83 during Season 3 of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone and use it to take down their enemies.
