Reputable Call of Duty leaker and YouTuber TheGamingRevolution has shared a significant leak regarding Zombies mode in the upcoming Black Ops Cold War.

Details about Black Ops Cold War are piling up fast, with the Open Alpha giving fans their first proper look at how the multiplayer will feel, play, and look.

One mode that will be returning in Treyarch’s 2020 title is Zombies. The undead mode was omitted in favor of Spec Ops in 2019’s Modern Warfare but has grown to be a mainstay of Treyarch’s games.

In a September 21 YouTube video, reputable leaker TheGamingRevolution shed more light on the immensely popular Zombies mode, which first featured way back in 2008’s World at War.

Nacht der Untoten was the first Zombies map ever, introduced in 2008’s World at War.

A remake of Nacht der Untoten looks set to return, albeit set in the Cold War rather than World War II. However, new portions of the map will be made open to players, expanding on the fairly small environment players were given in World at War.

In Black Ops Cold War, there will be two variants of Nacht der Untoten. One will be the remade, slightly larger version, while another looks set to be a basic remake, focused purely on survival.

A third map has also surfaced, named Firebase Z. This will apparently be set in the Vietnam jungle, and will be a bonus map, but still available at launch. This is, according to current leaks and data, the final map that will be available when the game drops on November 13.

The fourth map, which TGR claims will be released post-launch, will be set in Berlin. Details are very scarce, with some information suggesting it could be an expanded remake of Kino der Toten, from the original Black Ops.

An expanded remake of Der Riese, and a new version of Dead Ops Arcade are also rumored to be in the game. The fate of TranZit remains unclear, despite past leaks claiming it will return in Call of Duty 2020.

Away from maps, rumors state that perks will return, including Deadshot, Stamin-Up, Juggernog, Speed Cola and the new Elemental Pop. Specialist weapons, while not returning in normal multiplayer, are apparently set to return in Zombies. These will help you take down the new ‘boss’ zombies that Treyarch are apparently including.

Brutus could be set for a comeback.

In terms of other weapons, the regular Ray Gun looks set to return, but a ‘Ray Rifle’ has also been found in the game files. Details beyond the name are unclear, but this will undoubtedly cause excitement.

Finally, different game modes within Zombies are apparently available. Some will apparently have multiple possible endings, while basic Survival modes will also be playable.

It goes without saying that, despite past leaks being accurate, these details are subject to change. Treyarch could redirect their development plans, or omit aspects based on internal feedback.

We’ll have to wait for official word from the CoD developers, but there’s certainly enough information for fans to get excited about.

Best CR-56 AMAX loadouts for Warzone and Modern Warfare

The CR-56 AMAX is a great gun choice to utilize in Modern Warfare for those who value mobility. Here, we break down two of the strongest CR-56 loadouts you should be using. 

While the Fennec SMG has proved popular amongst those who favor the run and gun playstyle, the CR-56 AMAX gives players more ranged precision and damage for sacrificing speed. The Galil, now known as the CR-56 AMAX, aims to shake up the current assault rifle meta, giving players another option outside of the incredibly popular Grau 5.56 and M4A1 loadouts

The Galil dominated foes in the multiplayer battlefields of Black Ops 1, allowing players to kill targets in just three shots. As a result, this deadly assault rifle became popular for those that wanted to wrack up high kill counts. While the CR-56 AMAX has lost its original name, it still packs a real punch in both Modern Warfare and Warzone. In order to help you get the most out of the CR-56 AMAX, we’ve put together two loadouts that you can use to gain a competitive edge. 

Best CR-56 AMAX loadout for Warzone

Infinity Ward/DexertoBoost your ranged damage with these CR-56 AMAX attachments.
  • Monolithic Suppressor 
  • XRK Zodiac S440
  • VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 45 Round Mags

Unlike Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer maps, the vast frozen landscapes of Verdansk require players to test their medium to long-range shooting. While the initial dash for loot results in plenty of close-quarters firefights, you’ll also need a weapon that can effectively deliver lethal rounds at a distance should you wish to keep your enemies at bay. 

As a result, this loadout is all about pushing the CR-56 AMAX to its ranged limits, while also keeping your ADS speed to a minimum. First up is the Monolithic Suppressor and XRK Zodiac S440. These two attachments drastically increase your effective damage range, reduce the CR-56 AMAX’s recoil, and speed up its bullet travel time. While these attachments may increase your ADS speed, we think this loss is worth it, especially when you need to land those all-important ranged head and body shots. 

The VLK 3.0x Optic is great for a higher zoom level, giving you a greater edge when attacking from a distance, at a slight sacrifice of ADS speed.

The Commando Foregrip keeps the gun stable when aiming down sights and firing, while the XRK CR-56 Stippled Wrap greatly decreases your overall ADS time and sprint to fire speed. Not only will these attachments help keep your shots on target, they will also give you the ADS speed needed to be competitive in close-quarter fights.  

Lastly, the 45 Round Mags supply players with more than enough bullets to shred through even the most well-armored of foes. Having the extra rounds will also keep you from needing to reload every second, so if you wish to avoid any frustrating deaths, then make sure you equip this attachment.

Infinity Ward/DexertoUse this loadout when you want to rival Modern Warfare’s close-quarter SMGs.
  • Monolithic Suppressor 
  • XRK Zodiac S440
  • CR-56 EXO
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 45 Round Mags

Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer favors close to medium range firefights, so this loadout is all about buffing the CR-56 AMAX’s ADS speed and lowering the gun’s recoil. 

The CR-56 EXO stock drastically lowers the CR-56 AMAX’s ADS speed while increasing your ADS strafe, allowing you to quickly deliver a highly accurate spray of bullets in just a blink of an eye. While this attachment won’t stop you from falling prey to the popular MP5 and Fennec loadouts, it will increase your odds of survival when encountering the SMGs. 

The XRK Zodiac S440, Commando Foregrip, and 45 Round Mags are the three most optimal attachments here, so make sure you build around these for a new loadout.
