A classic Black Ops 1 map is coming to Black Ops 4

A new teaser has revealed that the old favorite WMD map from Black Ops 1 is set to make an appearance in Black Ops 4.

Treyarch showcased a new teaser trailer for an upcoming operation in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and it’s set to bring WMD into the game.

This is a map players will have fond memories of if they played Blacks Ops 1, the game that started the successful Black Ops franchise. For those who haven’t previously played it, it’s still a good map that is being added to the game.

Just how will it be added?

One thing that wasn’t made clear from the teaser trailer is how WMD will be implemented into the game.

With Black Ops 4 there are a couple of ways this could be done. The most obvious way would to just include it as another multiplayer map, which is probably the format most players are expecting.

Another option would be to add it as a location to the Blackout map. The original Blackout map is a mash-up of popular Black Ops locations over the year and WMD would certainly make a good addition to it.

What would be a pleasant surprise is if Treyarch decided to drop the map in both Blackout and multiplayer, essentially giving players the best of both worlds.

When does the next operation come out?

Black Ops 4’s next operation is currently set for an April 30 release date which is when we can probably expect to see WMD enter the game.

Treyarch also teased a variety of new things coming with the update but didn’t really dive into too many details as to what those will be. 

As the release date for this operation draws closer, we can expect to hear more about the upcoming update.

How to view your Black Ops Cold War stats on PC, PS5 & Xbox

Call of Duty is enjoyed by some of the most competitive gamers around and, of course, competitors want to analyze their performances. Fortunately, there are multiple ways to view your Black Ops Cold War stats, no matter your system of choice.

If you played Modern Warfare or Warzone, then chances are that you’re already somewhat familiar with checking your CoD statistics. Aside from the in-game client, using the website COD Tracker was a very popular way to check, and compare, your numbers when away from your console or PC.

That remains an option for Black Ops Cold War in 2020 and beyond, but players can also check their stats in-game and on the official Call of Duty app. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, but they all help you paint a clearer picture of your performance.

Whether you simply want to track your progress as a player or compare yourself to the game’s best, we’ve broken the two ways, outside of the in-game client, that you can check your Black Ops Cold War statistics.

COD Tracker

COD Tracker gives you an overview of your stats with the options to dive deeper.

COD Tracker’s offering is likely the most thorough option around, as you are able to track a ton of statistics, filter by mode, map, and weapon while comparing yourself to global leaderboards. 

Like Warzone, you can even go back through many of your recent matches to analyze individual performances.

  1. Head to COD Tracker and enter either your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  2. Navigate to the Black Ops Cold War tag
  3. Check out how you stack up against the competition

Call of Duty Companion

The CoD Companion App is a nice alternative for people looking to check numbers on their phone.

The Call of Duty Companion app is a very easy way to access many of your statistics without turning on your PC or console. While it doesn’t have as much data as COD Tracker might give you (and rounds K/D a decimal sooner than Tracker), the UI is very intuitive, with pie charts and line graphs for your numbers and whatnot.

  1. Search “Call of Duty Companion” on your device’s app store or through their website
  2. Download and open
  3. Sign in with your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  4. Navigate to “Player,” then scroll to “Black Ops Cold War” instead of “Modern Warfare” from the drop-down menu

While BOCW’s in-game client may feel somewhat limited in its options for analyzing your performance and place on the leaderboards, these two options each provide a ton of information.

Both provide similar degrees of data with the principal differences coming in their presentation, so it’s really up to you which you prefer to use.
