Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War brings its secret nukes to the rest of multiplayer

PC Gamer 14 July, 2021 - 11:11pm

Season 4 Reloaded also adds Warzone's first 20v20 objective-based mode.

Back in Season 3, Treyarch added a secret nuclear detonation scorestreak to Cold War. Long a staple of Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare games, getting 30 kills without dying would enable you to slam a nuke button to immediately kill everyone in the match.

Unlike Modern Warfare, Cold War's nukes didn't immediately end a round, instead simply killing everyone currently alive in a match. Additionally, on arrival these nukes were only available in rounds of Cranked Hardpoint. But with Season 4 Reloaded, Treyarch has decided to extend its nuclear genocide to the rest of multiplayer.

"We’ve heard from those players who went the extra mile in Cranked Hardpoint to earn the hidden Nuke Scorestreak, and we’re bringing it to the rest of Multiplayer," Treyarch wrote in an update post. "Starting this week, players will now be able to call in a Nuke by earning 30 kills without dying in all modes, with the exceptions of League Play and CDL variants, Multi-Team, Party Games, and Gunfight."

Black Ops Cold War players are loving the new Assault Rifle Iron Sights

CharlieINTEL.com 14 July, 2021 - 11:11pm

The reception to Black Ops Cold War’s new Assault Rifle Iron Sights has been very positive with players buzzing over the new changes.

For months, players have been decidedly mixed over Cold War’s Iron Sights attributing the 50/50 reaction to the sights being too zoomed in. Thanks to an update implemented just before Season 4 Reloaded, Assault Rifles handle much differently.

The general consensus is that whilst clean and smooth, the Iron Sights can sometimes obscure too much of the screen, or don’t provide enough visibility. Players are very appreciative of the changes that Treyarch has made to the game in Season 4.

Reddit user starless_salmon has showcased the brand new AR Iron Sights in all their glory, demonstrated examples of this with images of the XM4, Krig 6, QBZ-83, and the FFAR 1.

The new Iron Sights and ADS as a whole noticeably show a lot more of the surrounding area around the gun, meaning there’s plenty of scope to observe the environment.

A top comment for the post said: “The XM4 iron sights are sooo much better now,” and another user said: “The Krig is back to the Alpha version.”

Players generally liked a lot of the core mechanics of Cold War’s Alpha and Beta versions, and this change is proving to be a welcome one for many.

The update to the Iron Sights is another example of Treyarch listening to its fanbase and addressing an issue – no matter how long it takes to do.

Here’s how PlayStation 5 users can download new high-resolution texture packs for Black Ops Cold War, making the game look better than ever.

Black Ops Cold War’s mid-season update is almost here, finally bringing the Mauer Der Toten Zombies map, the OTs 9 SMG, and Tactical Nukes to regular multiplayer modes. On top of that, PlayStation 5 players will get some brand new high-resolution texture packs for “the best visual experience.”

Here’s when you can start downloading the new texture packs and how to apply them to Black Ops Cold War.

Black Ops Cold War’s Season 4 Reloaded update can now be applied, but the new content won’t be available until the update goes live on July 15. When you launch Cold War for the first time after the update, you’ll be prompted to download the new high-resolution texture pack.

This gives significant graphical improvements to the game, making even the game look even better if you’re playing at 4K. Warzone has already received these texture packs, but now they’ve come to Cold War on PS5.

However, because the update isn’t officially live yet, you’ll be met with a “This content can’t be found” error message. Community Manager Josh Torres advises players to disregard this message until Reloaded launches officially.

Here’s how to download the high-resolution texture packs once Season 4 Reloaded goes live:

If you don’t accept the prompt the first time it pops up, you can find the high-resolution texture packs through the Game Installs menu. Here’s how to do it:

And that’s it! Black Ops Cold War multiplayer, Zombies and Dead Ops Arcade 3 will be looking their best on the PlayStation 5.

A few frustrated Black Ops Cold Players are asking the developers to make some changes to the in-game matchmaking.

Black Ops Cold War fans have a ton of new content to enjoy in Season 4, including new weapons like MG 82 LMG, C58 Assault Rifle and the Nail Gun. There’s even more content on its way as part of the Season 4 Reloaded update.

However, players are still dealing with some in-game issues that ruining their experience. Members of the Black Ops Cold War community are asking the developers to make changes to the unbalanced matchmaking.

Reddit user ThechroniclesofMEEP highlighted the biggest problems with the matchmaking in the Black Ops Cold War subreddit. The main issue is that players are thrown into matches that are already more than halfway over.

It’s not fun to hop into a match only for it to end in about 45 seconds. It also ends up making things unbalanced as one team will be in the lead by then, so players in the opposing squad will be at an unfair disadvantage.

The Redditor suggested that the developers change the matchmaking so that players aren’t thrown into games that are about to end.

If the matchmaking is fixed, then players will no longer be thrown into games that are well underway, keeping one team from having an unfair advantage over the other. Many other users shared their own experiences in the comments.

“Anytime it joins a game right after I start queuing, I know I’m in for a beating,” wrote one user. “Will join and the game will be over in 45 seconds to a minute maybe. Pointless. I’m waiting to join longer than I’m in the damn game even.”

Hopefully, the developers will implement changes to fix the matchmaking in a future update. Also, check out when the next Double XP Event is.

Cold War’s Season 4 Reloaded update broke the pause feature in Zombies Solos, but a Treyarch dev has confirmed a fix is coming very soon.

Black Ops Cold War’s Season 4 Reloaded update has officially arrived, which is set to bring the highly-anticipated Mauer Der Toten map once the content goes live on July 15. With the update already in, players get to experience the buffs to Sniper Rifles in Zombies and try to earn the Tactical Nuke Scorestreak in multiplayer.

However, the Zombies community has expressed their frustration over the new update disabling the pause button in solo matches, but Treyarch Community Manager Josh Torres stepped in to assure players that it will be fixed very soon.

Being able to pause games of Zombies is one of the main advantages of playing on either a private server or in solos. In the later rounds, the undead onslaught is relentless, so being able to pause the game for a short break is a welcome relief.

There’s no relief following the Season 4 Reloaded update though, as the pause button has been disabled. Reddit user EqualInteraction7209 shared the frustrating bug on the Zombies subreddit, which prompted a response from Josh Torres.

In the video, we can see the OP pressed the pause button, but the Zombies round carried on in the background, with the undead being just as lethal as ever. A user tagged Treyarch’s new ‘TreyarchCM’ account, which Torres is now operating from.

He replied, “We’re aware of this issue. Solo Pausing will return tomorrow with the launch of Season Four Reloaded.”

So, this frustrating issue won’t last long, with it being fixed when the Reloaded update officially goes live on July 14 at 9PM PT and the early hours of July 15 for the East Coast and Europe.

Torres also mentioned that they are “investigating an issue with Server Pausing and will have updates at a later date.” We’ll let you know once more details have been revealed.

Warzone Zombies Return in New Season 4 Reloaded Finishing Move

Gaming INTEL 14 July, 2021 - 11:11pm

Back in Season 2, Warzone players might remember that we had a lot of undead guests running around Verdansk. The undead invasion was unpopular in Warzone, but it certainly brought some variety to the battle royale.

Of course, all zombies were destroyed in the Destruction of Verdansk Part 1 when the nuke fell. And after a thrilling limited-time event, we have to admit that we’re happy the undead are gone.

However, it looks like a few zombies will be returning to Warzone in Season 4 Reloaded. And they’re coming in the form of a new Finishing Move for Grigori Weaver.

Although Weaver was a major part of the original Black Ops storyline, he’s since taken on a new role. Now, the special officer is one of the commanders of Requiem, responsible for containing dimensional outbreaks across the globe.

We’ve seen Weaver turn up in Black Ops Cold War Zombies already, and he may well reappear in the upcoming Mauer Der Toten map. But players will soon be able to buy the seasoned Operator for themselves in a new store Bundle.

We imagine Weaver will be a popular store purchase, judging by this new Zombie Finishing Move. It seems that his time spent around the undead has given him a little control over the undead, and players will be able to use them to take down enemies.

At the start of the season, we got a brand-new Komodo Dragon Finishing Move for Warzone, and we thought that was taking things far. Then again, with the likes of Plaguehounds and Hellhounds joining the fun, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen zombified creatures in Finishing Moves.

You can see the execution in this leak by dataminer BreadsModding below. And zombies aren’t the only interesting thing turning up in leaks right now, as it looks like planes are coming to Warzone very soon!

Unfortunately, many Warzone players will be unable to enjoy the Season 4 Reloaded content. In case you haven’t noticed, even pro players like NICKMERCS are quitting Warzone’s battle royale thanks to ongoing issues.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s season 4 Reloaded patch notes

Polygon 14 July, 2021 - 11:11pm

Plus new maps and a new gun

Even the Zombies changes aren’t that sweeping, but they do give a boost to two of the mode’s most overlooked weapon types: melee weapons and sniper rifles. Melee weapons now do 2,500 damage instead of 2,000, and their level 3 Pack-a-Punch upgrades do five times more damage instead of four. Meanwhile, five different sniper rifles had various buffs to attributes like critical damage multipliers, stock ammo counts, and Pack-a-Punch damage.

Chances are, these changes won’t exactly make any melee weapons or sniper rifles into the new go-to options for intense, high-round zombie matches, but they should at least help them to be a little more viable and worth upgrading.

As for new content, Treyarch has shown off the features of season 4 Reloaded several times already, so we already knew what was coming long before the patch notes. There’s a new Zombies map called Mauer Der Toten, which is set in Berlin and features new weapons and zombies. There’s also a new submachine gun called the OTs 9, as well as the return of Black Ops 2’s classic map, Rush — which will arrive at midnight on Thursday.

For a look at all of the changes coming to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, you can check out the full patch notes.
