Black Ops Cold War and Warzone’s Season 2 update was to credit for Virgin Media’s record internet usage on February 25, 2021.

It appears that Call of Duty Gamers around the globe flocked to download the newest Warzone & Black Ops Cold War seasons, which ended up becoming the sole reason why Virgin Media hit their highest historical day of internet usage on the new season’s launch.

Over the course of the day, the average internet user downloaded more than 20GB of data, just 2-3 GB larger than the 17-17.9 GB Warzone Season 2 update. The exact average download amount for February 25, 2021, was 20.77 GB or 3.5GB above the average daily internet usage of 2020.

It’s quite amazing to see Call of Duty be the sole reasoning behind this upstream in internet data usage, perhaps signifying the hype for Activision’s hit battle royale is still at its high. Season 2 has been one of the largest Call of Duty updates to date, adding plenty of content to both Black Ops Cold War and the free-to-play Warzone.

On February 24, 2021, Black Ops Cold War received a large update in preparation for the Season 2 update rollout on February 25. The game was to receive a brand new multiplayer map, operators, Season Pass, reactive camos, weapons, and even a Zombies game mode, Outbreak.

Following the Cold War update was the record-setting Warzone update of February 25, which activated Season 2 across both titles. Within this update were huge changes to the Verdansk map, the activation of the Outbreak mode (and Zombies) in Warzone, on top of the new FARA 83 Assault Rifle and LC10 Submachine gun.

We’re sure even more record-breaking days are on the way for many internet providers, with rumors looming that the next Black Ops Cold War-themed Warzone map may be released in April.

We’ll be sure to update you if we hear anything. Stay tuned to @charlieINTEL for more information.

You will find that two different challenges can be completed to add this weapon to your inventory. One of these challenges must be completed when you are either playing Cold War Multiplayer or Warzone.

This challenge tasks players with getting a One Shot, One Kill medal, and a melee kill in the same life in 15 different matches.

The start of Season 3 for Cold War saw this weapon become available for players to earn immediately. However, it will not be available for players to earn in Warzone until mid-season.

Zombie players can acquire this weapon by killing a total of 300 enemies while using a Special or Melee weapon. However, the Special or Melee weapon must be Epic or Legendary quality.

The community also can get two other new weapons during this new period of content besides the Ballistic Knife when they unlock the PPSH submachine gun and the Swiss K31 sniper rifle.

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.

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.

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.

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.
