Treyarch have rolled out the first update since the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Season 3, and it includes changes to weapons, attachments, and movement, along with the launch of a new Double XP weekend.

Season 3 just went live in Black Ops Cold War but Treyarch aren’t waiting around to keep improving the game. Just a couple of days after the massive S3 patch, the devs are already applying further tuning to some weapons and attachments, including the AK-74u and QBZ-83.

In addition, there is a new XP promo weekend active: Double XP and 2x Weapon XP are both live now in both Cold War and Warzone from April 23 to 26.

MULTIPLAYER

Weapons

  • Submachine Guns
    • AK-74u
      • Increased base sprint speed to align with other SMG sprint speeds.
      • Increased shooting move speed and reload sprint speed.
    • Attachments (All SMGs)
      • Patrol Grip Underbarrel
        • Slightly reduced sprint speed bonus for Patrol Grip Underbarrel for SMGs to match Pistol sprint speed.
  • Assault Rifles
    • QBZ-83
      • Attachments
        • Patrol Grip Underbarrel
          • Added a sprint to fire bonus for the Patrol Grip Underbarrel.
          • Slightly reduced the Patrol Grip sprint speed bonus.
  • Attachments (Assault Rifles, Tactical Rifles, Sniper Rifles)
    • Speedgrip Underbarrel
      • Slightly reduced sprint speed bonus for the Speedgrip Underbarrel on Assault Rifles, Tactical Rifles, and Sniper Rifles to ensure SMGs maintain a faster sprint speed when using the same attachment.

Developer’s note: The overall goal of these changes is to ensure that SMGs are faster to use than assault rifles by default. The AK-74u required some slight speed increases in order to bring it in-line with the rest of its class, and sprint speed bonuses for the Speedgrip Underbarrel on assault rifles, tactical rifles, and sniper rifles required an adjustment to ensure SMGs are faster to sprint with compared to these classes when using this attachment.
