Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War: New update for Season 5 - what changes with the patch

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War

A new update is available for download for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The developers share the patch notes on their website and thus deal with the individual changes and innovations. The focus is on performance improvements for Double Agent. The changelog shows that the developers were able to fix individual stability problems. The patch also contains individual optimizations and bug fixes for the zombies mode. Improvements are therefore promised for the world events at Outbreak and the jump pads.

In addition, the developers refined the requirements that trigger the Omega helicopter. In addition, after downloading the current Black Ops Cold War update, the helicopter should no longer appear immediately at the players' spawn locations. Treyarch fixes a bug especially with the LT53 Kazimir, whereby the grenade could be duplicated as often as you like.

We have more information about the patch notes below this message. Incidentally, the Marshal shotgun pistol is available from today - via an in-game challenge and as a store bundle. Call of Duty Vanguard is currently the next shooter episode at Sledgehammer Games. The announcement is imminent: Vanguard is to be presented on August 19th, at 7:30 p.m., in the battle royale shooter Warzone. Players can look forward to an in-game event that even includes individual in-game items as a reward.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’ And ‘Warzone’ Season 5 Battle Pass Revealed

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 4 is almost over and Season 5 is about to begin.

The new season is brimming with new content including new Operators, new guns, an Among Us style mode and five new multiplayer maps.

There’s also a new 100-Tier Battle Pass that costs 1000 COD points. Activision revealed the new Season 5 Battle Pass today. Here’s the trailer showing off the new Kitsune Operator and a bunch of the other goodies you can unlock in Season 5:

Kitsune is the main Operator for Season 5, and her Legendary variant skin is pretty sweet, bringing a decidedly Japanese feel to the game for the first time. I wonder if this has anything to do with Call Of Duty 2021, aka “Vanguard” a game reportedly set in WWII—perhaps in the Eastern theater this time around?

On top of Kitsune there are Operator Skins for Woods and Baker, new Finishing Moves, and new Weapon Blueprints like the gold and blue Great Emperor Assault Rifle Blueprint:

Two new free weapons, available to everyone not just Battle Pass owners, will unlock at Tier 15 and Tier 31.

The EM2 Assault Rifle unlocks at Tier 15:

The British EM2 full-auto assault rifle adds another hard-hitting bullpup option to a category already overflowing with versatility.

In traditional Multiplayer environments, the EM2 demands your attention to keep its improved accuracy true to its word. With an optional Task Force Barrel, it can become a reliable three-shot elimination at ranges up to at least 50 meters; otherwise, a headshot needs to be mixed in for a faster down.

Don’t let the weapon’s slow fire rate deter you. With a built-in low-optic zoom, it is a force at range, calling upon marksmen to use it and defend their allies with all their might.

At Tier 31, you’ll unlock the TEC-9 SMG:

The semi-auto TEC-9 is one of the most unique SMG options yet in Black Ops Cold War, given that its action mechanism is the first of its category across all games.

On its own, the TEC-9 can eliminate targets in three shots anywhere within 10 meters. Its blowback nature allows Operators to place their shots more accurately, differing dramatically from a category filled with more traditional spray-and-pray options.

But it doesn’t have to be semi-auto — Operators can outfit it with one of two unique attachments that change its fire type to either three-round burst or fully automatic. These attachments also come with built-in position concealment, making it great for stealthy infiltrations. And for the fully auto modifier specifically, it makes this SMG more viable when considering hip-fire rushing tactics.

Both options increase fire rate, but in exchange, Operators must exercise more recoil control with those faster follow-up shots. The choice is yours.

Battle Pass purchasers can also unlock the World at War Mixtape and the ‘80s Hits 3 Mixtape at Tier 72 and 94 respectively. On top of all of this, you can unlock 1300 COD points, 300 more than the Battle Pass costs.

The Tier 100 “Samurai” Kitsune skin isn’t the only Tier 100 reward, either. It’s joined by the Microchip Legendary SMG Blueprint and some special vehicle skins, as well as the Season 5 emblem.

You can also choose to skip 20 Tiers (or 25 on PlayStation) for an additional 1400 COD points, or 2400 COD points total. Doing this will net you an extra “Kiyubi” Kitsune skin as well. It’s the only way to get the skin so keep that in mind.

Have you finished your Season 4 Battle Pass yet? You don’t have much time to finish that up or get to your next Prestige level. I’m one or two tiers short of 100 so I’ll wrap that no problem, but I’m about 15 levels from Prestige 8 which is frustrating since a new season resets that progress. Maybe I can burn through those before tomorrow night. Maybe.
