Call of Duty‘s 2020 release, apparently being developed mainly by Treyarch, has been reported to be a Black Ops reboot set during the “entire” Cold War era, featuring both the Vietnam and Korean War.

After a report came out on May 19 from Kotaku that Activision would be breaking the standard three year developer cycle to bring Treyarch back in early, many fans were anxious to see what Call of Duty 2020 would bring.

With the help of Raven and Sledgehammer studios, Treyarch are reportedly working on a new Call of Duty release which is set to be a reboot of the fan favorite Black Ops series, as is the case with the 2019’s Modern Warfare, launching on October 25.

LongSensation, who has leaked accurate details about future Call of Duty releases in the past, revealed that two names have already been used by Treyarch for their new game: Call of Duty: Black Ops and Call of Duty: Black Ops V

The upcoming addition to the Black Ops universe is expected to be set within the forty year period during the Cold War era, and will include elements of both the Korean and Vietnam war as part of the campaign.

He also claimed that fans looking forward to the future Black Ops release can anticipate the game to be much more “gritty and gruesome” than even the next addition to the Call of Duty franchise, Modern Warfare.

Despite the success of Treyarch’s Black Ops 4 battle royale mode, Blackout, in place of their campaign mode, it appears as if they will be reverting back to old ways committing their efforts into developing a campaign once again and may release a battle royale post launch, as was reported to happen with Modern Warfare.

Will CoD 2020 be rushed?

Raven and Sledgehammer studios were initially tasked with Call of Duty’s 2020 release but were reportedly replaced by Treyarch as the leading studio after some early struggles in the game’s development.

Many fans have since begin to wonder if the game will struggle from its late start but it was also reported that Treyarch would be adapting some of Raven’s and Sledgehammer’s previous work on the 2020 title in order to make up for lost time.

Activision have not yet commented on any details surrounding the Call of Duty 2020 release but based on previous titles, fans will likely have to wait for official teasers to be revealed which are expected in Summer 2020.

The QBZ-83 is may not be as strong or as accurate as the AK-47, but its superior mobility and handling make it a great pick. Here all the perks, attachments, and equipment you need to push this assault rifle to its peak. 

Whether you’re looking to level up every gun to grab those ultra-rare camos or just wanting to give the QBZ-83 a go, then you’ll want to use this loadout. This assault rifle is often overlooked by a lot of players and it’s currently one of the least used guns in the assault rifle category. However, if you’re willing to put in the effort into learning the QBZ, you’ll find that it is a pretty well-round rifle. 

This loadout boosts the QBZ-83’s already great speed, but also increases the gun’s accuracy and firepower. If you’re after an AR that can go toe to toe with the game’s SMGs, then look no further. In order to help you get the most out of the QBZ-83, we’ve put together a reliable loadout you can use to get those deadly Scorestreaks.

Best QBZ-83 loadout for Black Ops Cold War

The recent FFAR 1 and M16 nerfs have made the QBZ-83 a more viable option.
  • Muzzle: Infantry Compensator 
  • Barrel: 15.5” Reinforced Heavy
  • Underbarrel:Foregrip
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap 
  • Stock: Raider Stock


  • 1911


  • Stimshot
  • Semtex
  • Field Mic


  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket + Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Assassin + Scavenger 
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Ghost


  • Perk Greed

Due to the QBZ-83 having a very clear default sight, we’ve saved the attachment slot to make a much more comfy build. The Infantry Compensator and Foregrip help control both the gun’s horizontal and vertical recoil. This enables you to remain accurate at medium to long ranges. 

Adding to this is the 15.5” Heavy. Not only does this attachment increase the AR’s bullet velocity by a significant 40%, but it also increases the gun’s damage range by 100%. Whether you’re planning to play on the game’s bigger maps or just wanting to increase your kill potential, then the Reinforced Heavy is a must. 

Rounding things off at the bottom, is the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raider Stock. These attachments increase ADS and sprint to fire time, allowing you to aggressively rush your foes without having to worry about sluggish performance. 

In terms of equipment, the standard Stimshot, Semtex, and Field Mic have been chosen. These items will keep you on your feet and enable you to get the drop on any potential targets.

The QBZ-83’s speed and firepower makes for some blisteringly fast kills.

This loadout uses Perk Greed, which allows players to take six perks. The combination of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask will keep you safe from any explosives and noxious gas. These perks are important for most loadouts, but especially hyper-aggressive ones that prefer the run and gun approach to combat.

Meanwhile, Assassin reveals high priority targets and enables you to get the drop on any enemies who are on killstreaks. Scavenger also replenishes the QBZ-83’s ammo from fallen players, so you’ll never have to hunt for another gun when your ammo is low. 

Lastly, Ghost and Ninja keep your movements hidden from prying eyes and enable you to go for those sneaky flanks. After all, this loadout favors both close to mid-range firefights, so don’t be afraid to get into the very thick of a fight.
