Treyarch confirms huge weapon changes coming in Cold War Season 1

Huge weapon balances are coming when Season 1 drops for Black Ops Cold War, as confirmed by developer, Treyarch.

Black Ops Cold War Season 1 will be dropping with huge weapon changes.

Coming soon to Black Ops Cold War will be a weapon tuning pass when Season 1 drops December 15 at 11 PM PT. Treyarch confirmed this in a tweet soon after the Season 1 announcement.

Hopefully, the upcoming update includes changes to various weapon categories that players have been requesting changes for.

Recently, weapons like shotguns, snipers, and tactical rifles have sparked controversy in the community. For the time in many years, shotguns are a secondary weapon in Black Ops Cold War, and some players are not happy with the one-shot potential of the shotguns.

For snipers, there are arguments among the sniping community that the aim-down sight time is too long, and others outside the community believe the aim assist is too strong and that snipers don’t have enough flinch.

Burst rifles have been a hot topic of debate since launch, with the M16 and AUG having minimal recoil and excellent one-burst potential at medium range. Dying to a burst rifle feels nearly instant, resulting in some frustration by the community.

In response to Treyarch’s tweet, Game Designer Tony Flame responded, stating that the meta will be “shaken up” for the Holidays, so we can expect huge changes across multiple meta weapons to potentially change the game.

Weapons like the Krig, AK47, AUG, and MP5 have been meta for a while now, so those weapons could be most likely on the nerf list.

The AK47 has remained the king of ARs in public matches, with the Krig being the preferred competitive Assault Rifle. Both weapons have minimal recoil and hit hard. On the original release of Black Ops Cold War, the FFAR quickly became the favorite Assault Rifle but fell out of grace when Treyarch nerfed it.

Hopefully, we’ll see weaker weapons like the FFAR get a much-needed buff, while powerful weapons like the AUG & AK47 get a buff.

How to get Price ’84 Operator in Black Ops Cold War & Warzone

Published

on

The Black Ops & Modern Warfare worlds collide as Captain Price arrives in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War & Warzone.

Activision has announced that the new Captain Price ’84 Operator will be available for FREE for everyone who already owns Black Ops Cold War at the start of Season 3.

Players will simply have to log in and be able to access Captain Price ’84 in both Warzone & Black Ops Cold War after the Season 3 launch on April 22.

The Operator will be useable in both Black Ops Cold War MP & Zombies and Warzone, but players will need to use the Operator in Black Ops Cold War MP online first before it becomes accessible in Warzone.

That Operator is none other than Price ‘84, propelled into the Cold War era and outfitted in tactical gear suited for the most clandestine of wetwork operations.

How to unlock

Those who purchase any version of Black Ops Cold War at the start of Season Three will receive the Price ’84 Operator for use in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. Plus, anyone who already owns Black Ops Cold War will automatically receive the Price ’84 Operator at the start of Season Three.

Simply log into Black Ops Cold War following the Season Three Update to add Price ’84 to your roster of elite Operators. You will need to go online in Black Ops Cold War first before he appears as a playable character in Warzone.

Activision states that the Price ’84 Operator is a different Operator from the Modern Warfare Price Operator.

Six weapons including PPSH arrive in Cold War & Warzone with Season 3

Six new weapons, including fan favorite PPSH SMG & Ballistic knife arrive in Season 3.

Published

on

Treyarch has unveiled six new weapons are coming to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War & Warzone with Season 3.

As part of the announce blog post for Season 3, the studio revealed a look at the new weapons planned for Season 3 of Cold War & Warzone.

Some of the weapons will be part of the Battle Pass and be included at launch, while others will come during the season and unlocked via bundles or challenges.

Here’s a breakdown of the 6 new weapons:

Six New Weapons

PPSh-41: SMG (Launch Week)

When you need to spit fire, pick up the PPSh-41 SMG, an absolute classic in the series. Though its damage per shot is moderate, its rapid-fire, high-capacity capabilities encourage an aggressive playstyle ideal for leading the charge in objective modes and clearing out tight spaces in Warzone.

Obtain the PPSh-41 for free, ready to use in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone at Tier 15 of the Season Three Battle Pass.

Swiss K31: Sniper Rifle (Launch Week)

Precision and power. The Swiss K31 Sniper Rifle was made for one neutral country ready to rearm for world war, but will now find itself in the arsenals of the NATO and Warsaw Pact forces. This bolt-action sniper rifle boasts exceptional accuracy, as well as fast rechamber and aiming speeds with a large ammo capacity. Aggressive sharpshooters will be in their element with this new rifle, whether it’s sniping out in the wilds of Warzone or pushing forward on objectives in Black Ops Cold War.

Ballistic Knife: Melee (Launch Week)

A versatile weapon first introduced in the original Call of Duty: Black Ops, this iteration of the Ballistic Knife is a rare piece of spy technology developed in the late 1970s by Soviet Forces.

The spring-action knife launcher can either be used as a melee weapon or to silently fire lethal retrievable blades. It is most effective at short ranges, but the most skilled Operators could theoretically land a deadly hit from extreme distances. Available in Black Ops Cold War at the launch of Season Three and in Warzone mid-season.

CARV.2: Tactical Rifle (In-Season)

Carve through the competition with this burst-fire tactical rifle, joining the ranks of the M16 with its high-damage, high-bullet-velocity output. Boasting moderate firepower with solid recoil control and a large ammo pool, the CARV.2 cuts the deepest when used for mid- to long-range engagements.

AMP63: Pistol (In-Season)

The Secondary category gets even deeper later in Season Three thanks to the AMP63 pistol. Slotting in as the fourth sidearm in Black Ops Cold War’s arsenal, this personal defense weapon is a cross between a self-loading pistol and a fully automatic SMG. Expect this weapon to output high amounts of damage in a short period of time thanks to its full-auto nature, which makes it highly effective in close quarters.

Baseball Bat: Melee (In-Season)

A classic bruiser’s weapon of war, and Black Ops Cold War’s newest addition for one-hit melee fans. Unlock the Baseball Bat in Season Three, and get out there and crack some skulls in Multiplayer, Zombies, and Warzone.

Obtain the Ballistic Knife, CARV.2, AMP63, and Baseball Bat during Season Three in one of two ways: complete an in-game challenge to obtain the free base weapon, or pick up a bundle with a Blueprint version when it appears in the Store.

New MP Maps

Yamantau (6v6, Launch Week)

Bury your enemies in an avalanche of firepower as you fight through the crumbled remains of the Soviet observatory on Mount Yamantau. Battle through a massive downed satellite dish, snowy interiors, and broken catwalks, and fast-rope up and over your enemies to get the jump on the competition.

Diesel (6v6/2v2/3v3, Launch Week)

In the lonesome desert, this slice of Americana erupts into a battleground. Gear up for 6v6, as well as 2v2 and 3v3 in Gunfight on this fast-paced and frenetic map. Battle around the gas station and its surrounding buildings, smack dab in the middle of the badlands. Get frying.

Standoff (6v6, In-Season)

This Black Ops II classic is an icon to fans and pros alike, and in Season Three, it’s coming to Black Ops Cold War. Compete in 6v6 on this medium-sized map, which features a timeless three-lane feel and plentiful opportunities for outsmarting your opponents. Watch those buildings and mind the van over near the hay bales.

Duga (Multi-Team, In-Season)

Deploy with your squad to the Ural Mountains in this expansive new Multi-Team environment. Duga offers something for every playstyle, whether you prefer to move through the central admin offices for close-range battles, or work your way around the perimeter through the bus depot to the chemical processing plant for long-range battles. If you can’t immediately decide where to take your skills, try making your way atop the array tower for a fantastic view before parachuting off to your destination of choice.
