How to get Black Ops Cold War PC Beta Early Access via Twitch

Published

on

Activision has announced a promotion with Twitch allowing PC players an opportunity to get Early Access to the Black Ops Cold War Open Beta.

Fans who watch Black Ops Cold War Twitch streams between October 15 at 10AM PT and October 16 at 11:59PM PT for 4 hours will get instant access to start playing the Black Ops Cold War Beta.

Steps to Get Access

Step 1: Link Your Twitch and Battle.net Accounts

If you already have done this, then feel free to skip this step. If not, or you want to ensure those two accounts are linked, the process is simple:

Click this link to visit your Twitch Connections, where you would click “connect” on Blizzard Battle.net and sign into your account to link the two together.

Once you’ve done this, visit the Battle.net Account Connections page here to verify that your Battle.net account is linked.

Step 2: Watch Four Hours of “Drops Enabled” Twitch Streams

While logged into Twitch with your linked account, go ahead and watch some Black Ops Cold War streams to see what the next generation of global combat is all about.

Be sure to check that the streamer you are watching has “Drops Enabled,” as all hours watched on those streams will count towards receiving early access.

No need to guess when you’ll receive Beta access; anyone with a linked Twitch account who watches streams with Drops Enabled for at least four hours will get to dive into the PC Beta early.

Step 3: Play the Beta Early!

After hitting the four-hour mark, you’ll receive a Twitch notification about receiving access to the Black Ops Cold War Beta. It’ll also remind you of the streamer who brought you over the finish line for Beta early access, so consider thanking them for it!

Head to the Battle.net desktop app immediately once you get this notification, and you’ll be able to install, then launch, the Black Ops Cold War Beta.

If you’re on PC and are planning to watch streams to get early access, be sure to visit the Battle.net client now to preload the beta. Pre-loading on PC is available for everyone, regardless of preorder.

Black Ops Cold War scorestreaks reportedly leaked

Published

on

It looks like the scorestreaks available in Black Ops Cold War have apparently leaked.

The game’s beta offered fans a first look at just some of the new streaks that Treyarch has been working on, but now new images, from what appears to be a PC build, have leaked all the options available. It’s not clear when this build or how old this build it, so the streaks and icons could change.

There isn’t images of each streak individually, but this image does show the icons for all of them. We’ve removed image to avoid DMCAs. Again, this is not 100% confirmed as the final build, but here’s the list:

  • Incendiary Bow
  • RC-XD
  • Armor
  • Spy Plane
  • Counter Spy Plane
  • Flamethrower
  • Care Package
  • Sentry Turret
  • Death Machine
  • Cruise Missile
  • Artillery
  • Hand Canon
  • Napalm Strike
  • Air Patrol
  • War Machine
  • Strafe Run
  • H.A.R.P.
  • Attack Helicopter
  • Chopper Gunner
  • VTOL Escort
  • Gunship


The icons, in the images shown across social media, reveal what looks to be an AC-130 variation, advanced UAV, annihilator pistol, and more options for the game.

It’s not 100% clear yet as to how users have gotten access to the game, or if this is an internal leak from the final build of the game.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War officially launches on Friday, November 13 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.

We’re expecting more information about the game to come as the launch date approaches. The potential for leaks also increases as we get closer to the date, with some people getting early copies illegally.

Stay tuned for the latest news.
