Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone have a flashy new bundle available to commemorate the Call of Duty League’s 2020 Championships, and it’s filled to the brim with shiny new items.

Likely the largest pack in Modern Warfare, the CDL Champs Bundle comes with a whopping 69 items: three Legendary Blueprints, two Charms, three Calling Cards, three Emblems, three Sprays and 55 Stickers. And, like the winner of August’s CDL Championship will be, the motif for the entire pack is glistening gold.

It’s hard to tell which elements of this bundle are most enticing, as the entire assortment pays excellent homage to everything from tournament success to the league’s players themselves, as well as the language that has become so ingrained within the CoD community.

At $14.99 and unavailable to acquire with COD Points, fans will need to get the wallets out should they want some bling. Infinity Ward has made this hard to resist, as two of the three weapon Blueprints are for some of the most popular guns in multiplayer and Warzone, respectively: the M4A1 and HDR.

The black and gold colorways are dark yet lustrous, befitting the energy of a highly anticipated, multi-million dollar championship capping off the CDL’s inaugural season. But while these colorways and textures allude to Champs, the two charms available in the pack are much more direct—a golden championship ring and a miniature version of the coveted trophy.

 

The rest of the bundle gets a lot more lighthearted and community-oriented, as it features 55 Player Signature Sprays that showcase the full variety of CDL pro autographs and accompanying personalities. While guys like the Dallas Empire’s Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter and Atlanta FaZe’s Preston ‘Priestahh’ Greiner have classy (and possibly professional) penmanship, the Minnesota Rokkr’s Justin ‘SiLLY’ Fargo-Palmer lives up to his namesake with a beautifully genuine tag.

That attention to player personality extends even further into the community with the Calling Cards and Emblems, which feature some of the phrases that have become widespread amongst CoD players everywhere. From “I’m frying” to “lost full” and “chalked,” players can now represent their favorite expressions in-game without needing to clutter comms with them.

The CDL Champs 2020 bundle comes alongside another pro-inspired pack, the CDL Team Support pack. That one costs $4.99 and includes very unique Calling Cards, Emblems, and Sprays for each team—including funny nods to team and city histories, like a router Emblem for the Empire and a New York Subliners Spray featuring a rat eating pizza.

Whether it’s the sleek M4A1 from the Champs bundle or the distinctive cosmetics from the Team Support pack, July 10 has brought a ton of content for CDL fans to rock in-game.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Beta is finally upon us, and we’ve got everything you need to know about how to pre-load and download it ahead of time on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Ahead of Black Ops Cold War’s highly-anticipated November 13 release, Call of Duty players are getting the chance to try out the game’s multiplayer in a massive Beta period during October.

While the Beta is going to be open to everyone on all platforms, those who pre-order the game get early access on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Furthermore, thanks to Sony’s exclusivity agreement with Activision, PlayStation 4 players got their hands on it before anyone else.

The details for how to pre-load the game on your console or PC can be found below, as well as the full schedule for all three platforms.

How to pre-download Black Ops Cold War Beta on PS4

The early access period on PS4 started on Thursday, October 8 before the Beta was opened to all PlayStation users on Saturday, October 10. If you pre-ordered the game digitally, you could actually download the Beta early by simply searching ‘Black Ops Cold War Beta’ in the PlayStation Store.

There will be an option to download and pre-load the file before you can actually play, and you will not need a code. Just simply click on it and, as long as you’ve pre-ordered digitally, the system will allow you to start downloading.

It’s also worth noting that the same file will be used for both weekends, so you don’t need to delete and redownload it between the first and second sessions. However, this is a different program than the Alpha, so that can be deleted as it’s no longer needed.

How to pre-load Beta on Xbox One & PC

As mentioned above, the first week of the Beta was reserved exclusively for PS4 before also including Xbox One and PC this week. As with PlayStation, there will be an early access period on these other platforms as well, between October 15-16, after which the Beta becomes open to everyone on October 17.

The pre-loading period for Xbox One and PC started on Tuesday, October 13 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET. The process is pretty much the same: Xbox players who have pre-ordered a digital version of the game on Xbox One, Xbox Series S, or Xbox Series X can find the Beta in the console store, while the PC version will be listed under “Partner Games” in the Blizzard launcher.

Keep in mind that, unlike with PS4, those on Xbox must have an active Xbox Live Gold membership, and PC players will need to have a Battle.net account.

Additional info

For changes between the Alpha and the Beta, Treyarch released a massive set of patch notes on October 7 detailing all of the adjustments and improvements they’ve made since the game’s previous build.

Here are a few details you should know before the Beta periods kicks off:

  • Early access is only available for digital pre-orders. If you’ve pre-purchased a physical copy, you will not get early access.
  • If you’ve received a Beta code through Activision, Xfinity, or other promotions, you will receive an email with a download code
  • Digital pre-orders will not need a code to download the Beta, simply search your console store or Blizzard launcher for the game once the pre-load periods begin

When is the Black Ops Cold War Beta? Dates & schedule

Here’s a reminder of the full Beta schedule for BOCW; all periods begin and end at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET on their respective dates.
