Treyarch is breathing some life into Call of Duty BOCW with the March 4 update that will introduce a remastered Black Ops map as well as a brand new assault rifle.
Though the torch has been passed to Sledgehammer Games’ Vanguard, there’s still plenty of reason to dip into its predecessor in 2022. Treyarch is sweetening the pot with additional content well after a year from launch.
Players who have kept to the game will be happy to hear that there’s still some features supporting the 2020 CoD iteration as we stare down the barrel of another game.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Black Ops Cold War March 4 update when the patch goes out.
BOCW WMD remaster
Surprise! We’ve got new content dropping tomorrow in #BlackOpsColdWar:
• WMD Multiplayer map (Black Ops 1 remaster)• Vargo 52 Assault Rifle in MP & Zombies• Tracer Pack: Ferro Fury Reactive Mastercraft Bundle

The classic Black Ops 1 map, WMD, is hitting the latest title in the acclaimed series with a slight remaster to modernize the map.
There will still be plenty of opportunities to fight inside and out of the weapons facility with plenty of buildings for close-quarter action. But, WMD retains its large size to facilitate snipers.
For nostalgic fans who are looking to take a break from Vanguard’s WWII battlefield, BOCW’s new WMD map can hit the spot.
BOCW Vargo 52
A new assault rifle hits the BOCW arsenal with the versatile Vargo 52 thanks to the March 4 update. Fans might remember a previous bug that actually unlocked the Vargo 52 after the Vanguard Season 2 update, but it’s officially making its way to the game.
The Vargo will come with a Ferrofluid Weapon Blueprint that will also be a part of the Tracker Pack: Ferro Fury Reactive Mastercraft bundle.

The first Black Ops Cold War patch is due out on March 4 for its first update in 2022 and is set for all platforms.
