Early Black Ops Cold War leaks have given us a new look at upcoming Season 1 content including skins, weapon charms, and plenty more.

While Black Ops Cold War may have only just released, we’re already barrelling towards the first major update. Kicking off on Thursday, December 10, Season 1 is set to bring Nuketown back, introduce new maps and modes, along with providing a brand new Battle Pass. 

The roadmap gave us our first look at some of these upcoming additions, though we’ve been kept in the dark since. However, early leaks have just revealed a bunch of new content that we can likely expect in the new season.

From Operator skins to weapon Blueprints and everything in between, it looks as though BOCW Season 1 will continue introducing content in a similar style to 2019’s Modern Warfare. Here’s a rundown on everything that’s leaked thus far.

With Nuketown ‘84 being a highlight for the seasonal update, leaks from PC dataminer ‘TailsDoll711‘ have revealed some stylish cosmetics that fit right in with the revamped map. For starters, a new weapon Blueprint appears to be tied to the map in some capacity. Seemingly a Hauer 77 variant, this reward could be unlocked by playing on Nuketown, along with a few other items.

Also in the image is a weapon charm of a Nuketown mannequin fully kitted out in 80’s clothing. Additionally, there’s a nuclear weapon sticker that can be plastered on your favorite guns as well.

Early leaks have also revealed the return of Modern Warfare’s watches. While some were purely cosmetic in the past, others came with proper functions. One particular watch coming to BOCW seems to track your progress through your current level.

Russell Adler from the game’s campaign is set to receive one of the first seasonal skins, according to the new leaks.

A few different colored jackets and hats can soon be equipped for the multiplayer Operator. 

There’s no telling how every cosmetic item will be unlocked just yet. Much of this content could be featured throughout the 100-Tier Battle Pass in Season 1. Meanwhile, other additions could be locked behind various challenges. Only time will tell.

Keep your eyes peeled over the coming weeks as the Season 1 update draws near. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as new details slip through the cracks.

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

The Going Dark theme is new for CoD Mobile Season 12.

CoD Mobile .50 GS handgun Small Arms challenges

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
