Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War update makes changes to snipers, assault rifles, more

Treyarch has detailed all of the new content and changes included in the Season 3 Reloaded update for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

The biggest changes in this update have been made to the game’s weapons, with major adjustments for snipers, assault rifles, LMGs, and pistols.

Starting with snipers, the developer has introduced a sniper-specific flinch for all weapons in the class that will move weapon aim while being hit and also added ADS (Aim Down Sight) Momentum that gives a “feeling of weightiness as the weapon exits and re-enters ADS.” Additionally, individual changes have been made to each sniper rifle and attachments, including adjustments to bullet velocity, sprint to fire time, ADS speed, and more.

Assault rifles have all had their bullet velocities increased, with the exception of the FFAR 1, which has received a maximum damage increase and a bullet velocity decrease. Treyarch has also standardized the headshot multiplier with assault rifles, with 5.56 ammo getting a 1.4x multiplier and 7.62 ammo getting a 1.25x multiplier.

In addition to the above, all LMGs have received a base bullet velocity increase and a decrease in bullet velocity bonus from the Task Force Barrel, and the bullet velocity for pistols has also been increased.

Elsewhere, the Season 3 Reloaded update includes Standoff (6v6) and Duga (Multi-Team) as new maps, the Baseball Bat melee weapon, the first Main Quest for Outbreak, the Die Hardpoint multiplayer mode, and more.

Take a look at the full patch notes for Season 3 Reloaded, which is scheduled to go live tonight at 9 p.m. PT, here.
