Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War features a truckload of amazing weapons for you to dominate with. Here are all the weapons out in the latest CoD so far, and how you can obtain them.
Treyarch‘s latest game is set during the 1980’s Cold War era, so the game’s arsenal is naturally populated by guns from this time.
Some are an instantly familiar experience, while some are a new entity altogether. Launch weapons are mostly able to be unlocked simply by leveling up, but expect a few special requirements and more weapons to be added post-launch, too.
All guns in Black Ops Cold War
As Call of Duty game, the usual suspects are all here: Assault rifles, submachine guns, tactical rifles, light machine guns, sniper rifles, shotguns, pistols, and launchers.
