Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War review – This year’s Call of Duty was a completely different beast compared to Modern Warfare. Treyarch opted for a Hollywood style, over the top campaign partnered with some of the fastest multiplayer action we’ve ever seen. Here are our thoughts on how it worked out.
The best Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War XM4 customization for multiplayer – The M4 assault rifle always seems to be one of the best primaries in just about every CoD game it has appeared in. Although it’s Black Ops Cold War rendition isn’t quite top tier, it can still be nasty when built right.
The best Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War MP5 attachments – Coming off of the back of Modern Warfare, many had hoped the end of the MP5’s dominance had finally come. But just like CoD 4 and Modern Warfare before it, Black Ops Cold Wars‘ MP5 is amongst the very best guns in the game.
The best Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Milano 821 class – Based on the real-life Socimi Type 821, this legendary design would go on to be a primary inspiration for the Israeli Uzi submachine gun. The Uzi isn’t a gun that’s gotten too much love in Call of Duty in the past but this year’s version is surprisingly competitive. Here’s our go-to build.
The best Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War attachments for the AK-74u – Bored of everyone using the MP5 and want to stand out from the crowd? I’ve got just the gun for you. The AK-74u is amongst the very best guns in Cold War but getting the most out of it isn’t easy. Here’s our build to do just that.
The best Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War M16 loadout – Modern Warfare‘s tragic FR 5.56 left me believing we had seen the end of good burst rifles in Call of Duty games. But Treyarch had a different idea. Black Ops Cold War features some of the strongest burst rifles in Call of Duty history and having at least one on your loadouts is essential.
The best Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Type 63 loadout – Not to be confused with the SKS, the Type 63 is a designated marksman rifle with a fast fire rate and reliable three-shot kill. It might not be the most mainstream option in a game so fast-paced but for those who are confident in their aim, there’s little that kills faster.
The best Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War AUG loadout – Statistically speaking, the Cold War AUG performs similarly to the M16. In other words, it’s kind of broken. But thanks to its short burst delay and better range damage, this thing might be even better. Here’s a scary build that guarantees consistent one burst kills.
The best Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Stoner 63 loadout – It’s easy to try out a light machine gun, see the awful aim down sights speed and take it off your class immediately. I almost fell for the same trap but make no mistake, these big boys can be nasty when used right. This build I’ve come up with can beam down enemies at range, melt them up close and doesn’t even handle that badly.
The best Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Hauer 77 loadout – When I heard that shotguns were going to be secondaries this year, I sighed. Why? Because they were always going to be broken when built properly. And guess what? I was right. Here’s my filthy Hauer 77 pump action build that will have your enemies crying on voice chat in no time.
