How to set up Custom Games in Black Ops Cold War Season 4
Use our in-depth guide to learn how to set up your own Custom Games in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Season 4.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Season 4 has many weapons and modes for you to experiment with. Here’s how you can set up your own Custom Game.
For many players, the thought of stepping foot into CoD’s multiplayer is a terrifying prospect, and a quick warm-up against AI or friends is necessary. Or perhaps you want to test out a new weapon to see how it handles, but a competitive match won’t do it justice. Then a handy Custom Game is just the thing that you need.
The limitless freedom is what makes a Custom Game so handy. Black Ops Cold War has an ever-increasing roster of weapons and maps for players to dive into. Season 4 and its Reloaded update has really fleshed out the game with Mauer Der Toten vastly expanding the Zombies universe and new multiplayer maps to enjoy.
So let’s go over Custom Games and how you can set them up privately.
How to make a Custom Black Ops Cold War game
Here is how you can set up a Custom Game for yourself in Black Ops Cold War:
- Boot up Cold War
- Head to the Black Ops Cold War lobby screen
- Select ‘Custom Games’ from the bottom left
- Go down until you find ‘Edit Game Rules’
- Click on ‘Settings’
- Manipulate them until you are satisfied
You can alter the details of the match by changing the time limit, the number of times you can respawn, and how long it takes to do so. You can also change the round score and mess around with some of the more advanced settings. These advanced options will give you even more control over how the game goes.
Generally, you can choose to play against other players, but only those who you want to invite. You can also choose to play with bots so you have a bit of practice before initiating a private game. If you want to simply get a feel for the loadout, then turn the bot difficulty down.
When you’re in a Custom Game, you can take your time and go through various new guns like the C58 and MG 82 LMG, use their attachments, and see how they affect your ability to play. You won’t have to worry about being shot by other rowdy players who would ruin your concentration and keep you focused on your own survival the entire time.
How to make a Custom BOCW Zombies game
Setting up your own game of Zombies is generally very similar to the creation of a regular match.
Here is how you can set up a Custom Game for yourself:
- Open the Black Ops Cold War Zombies screen
- Press your right bumper or click on “Private” which is next to “Public”
- Create your own Custom Game
Where is the Custom Game button?
During one of the Black Ops Cold War updates, many people became concerned that Custom Games had been removed altogether. The reality is that Treyarch inadvertently moves it further down every now and again.
Due to the addition of so many different playlist options, Custom Games have been relegated to the bottom of the pile. Simply keep scrolling down through the modes, and you’ll see that it’s still there.
That should cover everything you need to know about setting up a Custom Game in Black Ops Cold War.

Black Ops Cold War players call for major change to Special weapons
The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War community is calling for Treyarch to make a major change to the Special weapons category.
Special weapons are some of the most unique and exciting items in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, but community members are calling for Treyarch Studios to make a major change to how they operate.
There are various categories of weapons that players can use to battle their enemies in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The game has the standard Assualt Rifles, SMGs, LMGs, Pistols, and more.
However, it also has a category known as Special weapons, which consist of unconventional weapons that allow players to collect some highlight and adrenaline-fueled kills.
While these weapons can be extremely powerful, Black Ops Cold War players have begun to call for a major change in how the Special weapons can be used in the game.
Taking to the official Black Ops Cold War subreddit, community member -Lusty- started a thread stating that they wished that the Special weapons had attachments players could equip like all of the other weapon categories in Cold War.
Many other players agreed as they wish there were attachments available for the Black Ops Cold War Special weapons that would allow them to change the playstyle of the weapons or offer new ways to use these items.
An example was given by community member springsight, who commented that they would like to see things like smoke rounds for the M97 Grenade Launcher.
“I want something that makes the launcher actually viable. Give me smoke rounds, flash rounds, semtex rounds, I just want to make things go boom :(.”
There is no doubt that the addition of attachments to the M97 Grenade Launcher, Ballistic Knife, Nail Gun, and R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow would make for even more exciting moments for Black Ops Cold War players to experience.
