Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s Season 4 Reloaded update included some weapon buffs and nerfs to help shake things up in the Zombies. Here’s a quick breakdown of all the changes.

Black Ops Cold War’s Season 4 Reloaded update introduced many new things, including a wealth of changes to weapons in Zombies.

Not only did it add the highly anticipated Mauer der Toten map, a new Wonder Weapon, and the return of the Mule Kick perk, but it also included some weapon buffs and nerfs.

Let’s take a look at all the key Call of Duty Zombies changes.

Zombies players will benefit from these changes, especially those who live sniper rifles.

Pack-A-Punch Melee Weapons buffed

Melee Weapons have been given a significant buff, but only when they’ve been pack-a-punched. More specifically, the base damage of a pack-a-punched melee weapon has been increased from 2000 to 2500, while the Level 3 damage multiplier has been increased from 4 to 5.

It doesn’t sound like much, but it means the base damage is 25% stronger and multiplied by an extra digit when Pack-a-Punch Level 3 is applied, which is insane. You’ll be hacking and slashing your way through Zombies in no time.

The Pack-A-Punch machine allows Zombies players to improve their weapons.

Swiss K31, ZRG 20mm buffed

Sniper Rifles have been falling short of the mark in Zombies for a while now. So, to make them more viable, Activision buffed the Swiss K31 and ZRG20mm by increasing their critical damage multiplier from 3.5 to 4.5 and increasing their ammo capacity.

This also applies to their pack-a-punched variants, the SWISS KH3353, and the Head Canon. It’s a welcome change since these weapons were widely considered to be the worst guns in the mode. But these buffs should be a decent improvement.

The ZRG sniper hasn’t been effective in Zombies, but that’s about to change.

But that’s not all the weapon changes included in the patch. Sniper Rifle Charlie, the Pelington 703, and the LW3 – Tundra were also buffed.

Here’s a list of all the changes included in the official patch notes.
