In Call of Duty’s new Warzone battle royale mode, players can’t earn killstreaks or build their loadouts out in the conventional way of amassing kills like in multiplayer.

In Warzone cash is king, and that’s especially true for both killstreak rewards and filling your kit out with the best gear.

As in most battle royale games, the basic way to acquire weapons is to find them and other equipment scattered around the map, but along with that players will also find piles of bills to grab.

Players have to collect cash in addition to weapons and gear in Warzone.

It’s with this cash that killstreaks and the best weapons and equipment in the game mode can be acquired from Buy Stations, which are spread all throughout the map.

Buy Stations are visible on players’ map, and the nearest one can be marked with a pin to make finding it even easier.

Warzone practically revolves around its in-game economy, which means it’s essential for players to collect as much money as they can find while making their way around the map.

It’s even possible for players to pool their cash together in order to afford more expensive (and more lethal) killstreaks by dropping it on the ground.

Warzone will offer the same killstreak rewards as traditional multiplayer, so you can expect to see things like a UAV system being one of the cheaper items and something like the precision airstrikes available at a higher price.

As for loadouts, players can select two weapons to hold, along with one piece of lethal equipment and one piece of tactical equipment as well.

Weapons in Warzone come in rarity tiers that will be familiar to BR players, for instance, a green weapon will be much less expensive than an orange or gold tier.

Players may choose to defend Buy Stations in a bid to sabotage the enemy squad.

You can even revive downed teammates at Buy Stations, but whether or not you’ll be able to convince your teammates to bring you back when they’re being tempted by a nice shiny killstreak reward remains to be seen.

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

  • CPU: Intel I7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 1800X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce RTX 3070
Activision
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.
