Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

COD 2020 campaign missions & MP Maps names reportedly leaked

Published

With “The Red Door” Call of Duty 2020 internal closed alpha appearing on Xbox One and Microsoft Store recently, users online have spent some time digging into the actual game files to see what they can find.

Now, it appears some users, including ProtoWarehouse, have started to actually access the files of “The Red Door” alpha on Xbox and started to share some of their learnings from the files.

One of the learnings they have found is a list of the potential campaign missions for Call of Duty 2020.

Here’s the list of campaign missions:

  • K.G.B. (Russia)
  • Siege (Russia)
  • Yamantau (Russia)
  • Takedown (Side Mission)
  • Tundra (Side Mission)
  • Hub (Germany)
  • Hub 8 (Germany)
  • Stakeout (Germany)
  • Armada (Vietnam)
  • Prisoner (Vietnam)
  • Revolucion (Nicaragua)
  • Amerika (Russia)
  • Duga (Russia)

But, it’s important to note that these are most likely internally code-names for the campaign missions – or in-development names for them as the game’s development wraps up ahead of the Q4 2020 launch of the game.

Multiplayer Maps:

There are currently 8 MP maps listed inside of the game files per the rumors. This list does match up with what was previously leaked from XclusiveAce in his now deleted video. There could be more maps in the actual game when it launches as this is a still in-development game.

  • Black Sea
  • Cartel
  • K.G.B.
  • Miami
  • Moscow
  • Satellite
  • Tank
  • Tundra

Alongside MP, there will be Zombies as the co-op mode. For Zombies, the internal code name of the map is ‘Silver.’ Treyarch is known to use color code names for Zombies map in the past.

In addition, there are references to different ‘Zones’ for a potential new map for Warzone, which is expected to carry over to the 2020 game:

  • Duga
  • Forest
  • Russia
  • Ski Slopes

So far, Activision has not announced any details still on the 2020 Call of Duty game. This has made many fans anxious to get news of the game, going as far as digging around in the game files itself now with internal alphas in order to actually get any information they can.

Activision has not commented on the internal alpha on the Xbox nor provided any details on these new leaks that are appearing.

The 2020 Call of Duty game is expected to be called Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and set in the Cold War era. The game is going to be a launch title for the new generation consoles this holiday, alongside releasing on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Stay tuned for the latest news on Call of Duty 2020.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

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.

Black Ops Cold War glitch hints at Sniper’s Nest scorestreak coming soon

The Sniper’s Nest scorestreak may be arriving in Black Ops Cold War soon after a player’s video showed the existence of it.

Despite the addition of the H.A.R.P scorestreak with Season 1, it seems that Treyarch could be welcoming the return of the Black Ops 4 Sniper’s Nest killstreak into BOCW.

Black Ops Cold War already has a wealth of scorestreaks for players to use in matches, from the tactical Spy Plane to the simply devastating Gunship.

With the launch of Season 1, Treyarch added the H.A.R.P — a scorestreak that reveals the position of every enemy and the direction they’re running — but it seems it won’t be the last added to the game.

Thanks to a strange glitch that appeared in-game, we could see the Sniper’s Nest scorestreak become part of the scorestreak armory in Black Ops Cold War.

New BOCW scorestreak hinted at

Whether it’s due to unused assets from a previous Call of Duty, or because of future content that has conspicuously been left in, there is a likelihood that Sniper’s Nest does exist.

The MW2 OG Twitter page has been sent a video showing how one player managed to reveal this piece of information. It doesn’t even require any strange glitches or convoluted instructions to appear either.

In the video, the player calls in a Care Package into a game on Nuketown. As the mysterious box of killing-potential is being delivered to the map, the player then decides to mark their territory by tagging it.

Upon doing this, a prompt appears on the left side of the screen saying that they “Marked Sniper’s Nest”. The package arrives with a VTOL Escort, which is great in itself, but it’s not Sniper’s Nest.

Debuting in Black Ops 4, the Sniper’s Nest scorestreak allowed players to call in a helicopter with two absolutely pin-point marksmen that could laser enemies with one shot.

As with most scorestreaks, the vehicle is susceptible to enemy fire and can easily be brought down using a combination of weapons and anti-scorestreak devices.

It’s not exactly a necessity in Black Ops Cold War right now. If it does appear, then Treyarch may just hold off until the launch of Season 2 before throwing it into the mix anyway.

JGOD reveals the best gun barrels in Warzone

The latest video by COD YouTuber ‘JGOD’ revealed the best barrels to equip in Warzone to improve bullet velocity.

JGOD talks about the best Warzone barrels

Call of Duty YouTuber ‘JGOD’ uploaded a video in which he studied how each barrel affects the bullet velocity of most primary Black Ops Cold War weapons in Warzone and revealed the best ones to equip.

Call of Duty: Warzone doesn’t inform you of how much each attachment that you equip will affect your weapon. Unlike Black Ops Cold War; you won’t know the exact stats and percentages, so you’ll have to test your loadout in battle.

After a bit of experimenting, CoD YouTuber JGOD has discovered the effects of certain attachments on his guns. He made a new video, in which he went over how equipping different barrels in Warzone can affect your bullet velocity.

Barrels in Warzone

What are the best gun barrels in Warzone?

You have a much better chance of killing your targets if your bullets travel quickly. Plus, the speed of your bullet will help you determine how much of a lead time you should put in front of a moving target.

That is why it’s worth equipping certain attachments that will improve your bullet velocity before running out into combat. JGOD tried out all his primary Black Ops Cold War weapons in Warzone for the video, with shotguns being the exception.

He tried out every barrel in the game and checked the time taken for each shot to reach its target. He then recorded the results and discovered that barrels shared by different weapons affect each one differently.

This is also true for weapons within the same class since the Calvary barrel can greatly improve the bullet velocity on LMGs while having no real effect when equipping it on Assault Rifles.

His experimentation found that the best improvement to bullet velocity comes from equipping the Ranger barrel on ARs, the Calvary barrel on LMGs, the Titanium barrel on Tac Rifles, and the Reinforced Heavy on SMGs.

That only covers some of the discoveries he made, as his video is highly informative. JGOD put in proper effort to collect this data, and you can take a look at the full breakdown of his results here.
