A new Season 5 event called the “Games of Summer” has added new trials to Warzone for players to complete. Here’s what you’ll need to get a gold time in the Risky Parkour challenge.

Warzone’s mid-Season 5 Reloaded update introduced plenty of new content to the battle royale such as the new Finn LMG, King Slayer playlist, and more.

It was also announced that Infinity Ward would release a new ‘Games of Summer’ event, which would put a new spin on Modern Warfare’s Trials mode.

More trials will be available in the Games of Summer event soon.

This new summer event allows players to represent their country, as your performances in the trials will add to your region’s overall score, as well as offering plenty of rewards upon completion.

However, as these trials can be quite difficult, particularly for those looking to finish their run with a Gold medal, Call of Duty YouTuber Speros shared some tips and gameplay, revealing just how players could get gold in Warzone’s first active trial, Risky Parkour.

Although similar courses have been added in past seasons, this new Risky Parkour trial is possibly the most challenging one yet. Here are some tips that can help you get gold.

How to get gold in Warzone’s Risky Parkour challenge

  1. Make use of the practice tool to get a feel for the course.
  2. Go to your settings menu and enable automatic sprint.
  3. Sparingly use your tactical sprint for longer jumps at tricky parts of the course.
  4. The timer does not start until your first checkpoint, so line up your first few jumps before you start.
  5. Keep practicing! It will take some time to master the course.

Trial run starts at 2:48

It is quite unlikely that you will get gold first try but if you follow these steps you should be able to shave more time off with every attempt.

Infinity Ward is also offering a Legendary Grau 5.56 weapon blueprint as a reward, for anyone who manages to earn 5 gold medals during the event.

With Black Ops Cold War just two weeks away from being officially released, Activision and Treyarch have officially unveiled all the PC requirements and recommended specs a fan could dream for, including what you’ll need if you want to run the game on high settings.

Black Ops Cold War is almost here and fans are starting to get hyped for the first-person shooter. With only two weeks left until the game’s official launch, most fans have decided if they are going to be picking it up or if they’re going to be skipping out on this year’s entry.

Up until this point, however, neither Activision or Treyarch given a ton of info about the PC version of the game. That’s now changed as the required and recommended specs have officially been unveiled, as well was the specs you’ll need in order run it on other types of settings.

Black Ops Cold War minimum PC specs

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit or Windows 10 64-bit or higher
  • CPU: Intel Core I3-4340 or AMD FX-6300
  • RAM: 8GB
  • HDD: 50GB for MP only, 175GB for all game modes
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 670/Geforce GTX 1650/Radeon HD 7950

Black Ops Cold War recommended PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core I5-2500K or AMD Ryzen R5 1600X
  • RAM: 12GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 970/GTX 1660 Super or Radeon R9 390/AMD RX 580

Black Ops Cold War recommended PC specs with ray-tracing

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 1800X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce RTX 3070
Activision released a handy graphic to explain to PC players what they’ll need.

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 1800X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080/RTX 3070 or Radeon RX Vega64 graphics

Black Ops Cold War Ultra RTX PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I9-9900K or AMD Ryzen 3700X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 250GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce RTX 3080

As expected, if you want to run the game on extremely high settings, you’re going to need the PC to match it. That being said, the required specs are better than what was required in the beta, with the full game only requiring an I3 processor while the pre-release version needed an I5.

This, however, shouldn’t be surprise, as full versions of games are almost always more optimized than their pre-release counterparts. That being said, it’ll be interesting to see how bad the low-settings PC version looks once it’s live. Here’s hoping that it won’t be too bad.
