Black Ops Cold War alpha glitch lets players carry three or more guns

The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Alpha is live for one weekend across PS4 and players have already discovered a glitch that is a particularly pleasant surprise, as it allows them to carry three or more weapons.

Like the Overkill perk in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, players can carry two primary weapons in Black Ops Cold War if they have the Law Breaker wildcard equipped. But it doesn’t stop there, as numbers of people who are trying out this weekend’s Alpha have reported being able to carry three or four guns during their matches.

The experience harkens back to the days of the Mule Kick Perk-a-Cola, which enabled Black Ops players to equip three primary weapons in the Zombies and Cyborg Rising modes across many of the franchise’s titles.

This glitch was brought to the forefront by Call of Duty pro player Justin ‘SiLLY’ Fargo-Palmer, who realized, in a moment of absolute bewilderment, that he had two primary weapons and a secondary to choose from: “I’m very confused … how do I carry three guns? I have three guns, bro, am I faded?” 

In this case, SiLLY found himself blessed with a Type 821, XM4, and Diamatti in his inventory. That’s a lot of bullets to let loose before you need to reload.

But players have reported randomly getting to enjoy even more weapons at their fingertips, as another showed that they were essentially playing with two separate classes (for four guns total) at one point.

Here, Keith ‘Trident’ Pecora is gallivanting around BOCW’s Miami map comfortably switching between an SMG, a sniper, and two pistols. It’s essentially two full classes, neither of which have Law Breaker equipped.

 

Again, no one has any idea how this happened or what led to this glitch, only that players “somehow have two full classes at the same time.” It’s as bizarre as glitches get, not to mention overpowered.

The bright side is that this popped up in the alpha, which means that the developers have more than plenty of time to sort it out before the beta kicks off in October, followed by the full release of Black Ops Cold War on November 13.

Best Fennec loadouts for Warzone and Modern Warfare

The Fennec has now been out for a few months, but you’ll still need to equip the right attachments if you truly wish to master this lightening fast SMG. Here, we break down two of the strongest Fennec loadouts you can use.

The Vector, now known as the Fennec, has been a popular SMG ever since it first graced our screens back in Modern Warfare 2. Packed with a buttery smooth recoil pattern, excellent hip-fire, lightweight, and insanely fast rate of fire –  the Fennec is an absolute beast of a gun. In fact, this deadly machine gun is so lethal that it can tear through multiple enemies in just a blink of an eye. 

This zippy SMG hasn’t taken the crown away from the MP5, but the Fennec is still a popular choice. For many, this weapon is still a go-to, particularly in close-quarters where hyper-aggressive play is rewarded. In order to help you get the most out of the Fennec, we’ve put together two loadouts that you can use to dominate the competition in both Modern Warfare and Warzone. 

Best Fennec loadout for Warzone

Infinity Ward/DexertoBoost the Fennec’s damage range with this deadly loadout.
  • ZLR18” Deadfall 
  • Merc Foregrip
  • Stippled Grip Tape
  • Sleight of Hand
  • 40 Round Drum Mags

While Warzone’s large scale map may favor long to medium range engagements, you’ll still want to equip a weapon that can give you the edge in those close-quarter firefights. This loadout increases the Fennec’s hip fire, while also giving it a little extra range for when you need that added distance. 

First up is the ZLR18” Deadfall. This attachment not only drastically increases your effective damage range, it also ups your recoil control and bullet velocity, helping with the precision it needs when going for those all-important body shots and headshots. While this attachment increases your ADS speed, we think this loss is worth it, especially when you consider how woeful the Fennec’s mid-range damage is. 

The next two attachments are the Merc Foregrip and Stippled Grip Tape, along with the Sleight of Hand perk. Not only will these additions keep the Fennec stable while aiming and hip firing, they will also increase the ADS & sprint to fire speed, improving your reload speed and giving you even greater control when you need to react quickly.

Taking down fully armored players in Warzone can often prove frustrating, but the 40 Round Drum Mags will give you more than enough bullets to shred through many an armored enemy. This attachment is a must for those that want to secure those game-winning squad wipes.

Best Fennec loadout for Modern Warfare multiplayer

Infinity Ward/DexertoThis loadout absolutely obliterates players in close-quarter firefights.
  • ZLR 18″ Deadfall
  • Tac Laser
  • No Stock
  • Merc Foregrip
  • 40 Round Drum Mags

This build is all about melting your opponents in close-quarters combat. The Tac Laser drastically lowers the Fennec’s ADS speed and increases overall stability, while also allowing you to maintain a steady walk while aiming. 

Being able to quickly take care of enemy threats without needing to ADS is a godsend, particularly on smaller maps like Shipment and Rust, where you’ll constantly find yourself running into enemy players. 

Lastly, the Merc Foregrip will also increase your recoil control and hip-fire accuracy, allowing you to quickly fire off the Fennec’s blisteringly fast rounds with deadly precision. Foregoing the stock for this build will give you a slight boost in movement speed for quicker reaction to get away from players, while The ZLR 18” Deadfall and 40 Round Drum Mags should always be a top priority for any Fennec players looking to increase their kill potential, so always try to build your loadout around these core attachments.
