Brand new Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War leaks claim that a number of fan favorite scorestreaks are set to return in Treyarch’s upcoming FPS instalment. 

Details surrounding Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War are rapidly piling up, but a number of aspects remain unclear, including an exhaustive list of scorestreaks.

Treyarch have already confirmed an overhaul to the system by which scorestreaks will be earned, as well as the reversion to scorestreaks, rather than killstreaks. Some of the confirmed scorestreaks will be familiar to Call of Duty veterans, like the Spy Plane and Chopper Gunner.

Some Black Ops Cold War scorestreaks remain unconfirmed.

However, a number of scorestreaks remain unconfirmed, but have been uncovered by reputable CoD leaker ‘TheMW2Ghost’. On September 13, the leaker claimed that multiple other scorestreaks have been seen in various builds of the game, a lot of which will be familiar to CoD fans.

Among these that have been spotted are a Minigun, Radar Jammer, Flamethrower and Sniper’s Nest.

A counter Spy Plane was a near-guaranteed inclusion, but a Flamethrower has featured as a specialist weapon – not a scorestreak – in Treyarch’s last couple of games. This does, though, fit with other leaks that claims some specialist weapons will be returning as streaks in the 2020 title.

A dog (or pack of) “should be” in the game’s final build but, perhaps most notably, the leaker stated that there is an ‘Advanced Spy Plane’ streak.

Advanced UAVs have featured in a few Call of Duty titles, but Treyarch’s Blackbird or Orbital VSAT has gone down as one of the strongest streaks in the series’ history.

It could not be shot down before Black Ops III, but offers a constantly updating arrow for the location of each enemy. As far as non lethal streaks go, they are as good as the CoD series has ever had.

The form it will take in Black Ops Cold War remains unclear, but we’ll continue to update you as more information becomes clear.

It’s also important to remember that these leaks are not yet confirmed, and a lot can change in the late stages of a video game’s development process.

Black Ops Cold War Beta players on consoles can finally change their field of view settings thanks to a welcome addition by Treyarch. Here’s everything you need to know about the new options, including what the best setting is.

Field of view options for consoles is something that fans have been asking for for a long time. Whenever a new CoD game releases, there’s always a section of PlayStation and Xbox players wondering why the option hasn’t been made available for them. It’s equally frustrating considering that the PC version of every iteration has had the options available on day one.

This is all changing with Black Ops Cold War, however, as Treyarch has confirmed that players on consoles will finally be able to adjust their field of view. For people unfamiliar with the options, this might be a bit confusing. Taking advantage of these settings, however, might end up helping your game.

What is field of view?

At its most basic form, field of view is how much of the game you see on your screen. A lower FOV means you’ll see less, while a higher field of view means you’ll see more.

While some people might immediately say that a high field of view is automatically better, it’s important to note that the higher the field of view, the more distorted your screen will look and the smaller objects will look at a distance.

Generally speaking, you’ll want to balance you’re field of view with what your comfortable looking at.

How do I adjust my FOV settings?

In the beta, finding the FOV slider is relatively simple but in case you don’t know, here’s a quick and simple guide to figure it out.

  1. In your Black Ops Cold War Beta application, press the buttons for “Settings”
  2. Tab over to the “Graphics” options
  3. Scroll down until you see “Field of View”
  4. Adjust the slider from left to right to set to your desired setting.

What’s the ideal field of view setting?

If you’ve never played with a modified field of view before, it might be best to take things slow. Working your way up will allow you to adjust to the higher FOV so that you’re not thrown into the deep in, so to speak.

In order to have a high FOV, while making sure that you can still see enemies, it’s recommended to keep your adjusted setting at 100. While you can certainly push it all the way up to 120, the former will allow you to experience the changes without it being too difficult to see things at a distance.
