Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War now shows ping information while searching

Treyarch has released a new update for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War that adds two new playlists, makes adjustments to challenge tracking, and more.

Following the update, progress for multiplayer, daily, and seasonal challenges are now retained when quitting a multiplayer match. However, this does not count for weapon unlock and camo challenges. In addition to this, players will now be shown ping information in the search bar while searching for a match.

This update also brings with it a 6v6 version of Diesel 24/7 and a new week of Gunfight Tournaments to compete in. By progressing in this new set of tournaments, players can earn a new Emblem, Calling Card, Charm, and Weapon Blueprint.
