Activision has unveiled a brand new, exclusive Under Fire calling card for use in both Modern Warfare and Warzone. Here’s everything you need to know about how to get your hands on it for free.

During the PlayStation 5 showcase on September 17, players shown a brand new look at Black Ops Cold War. After the demo, fans were blown away to learn that PlayStation 4 players would be able to get their hands on the Alpha for the game from September 18 to September 20, which is something that most didn’t think would happen.

The beta itself is set to give players a small taste of the game’s multiplayer, with only five maps and five modes being available throughout the weekend. Regardless of whether or not you like the game, you’re going to be rewarded for your time in the Alpha, as Activision has confirmed that players who jump into it will receive a calling card for Modern Warfare and Warzone.

How do I get the Under Fire calling card?

Currently, the only way to get your hands on this exclusive item is by playing the Black Ops Cold War Alpha before 10AM PDT on Sunday, September 20, 2020. This is the final official day of the Alpha and it’s set to end at that specific time. You can find a breakdown of the times below.

  • PDT: 10AM
  • EDT: 1PM
  • BST: 6PM
  • JST: 2AM
  • AEST: 3AM

This means that, so long as you log in an play a match before the Alpha is over, you’ll get the calling card in your inventory.

Can I get the calling card on Xbox One or PC?

Unfortunately, because the Alpha is only available on PS4, there’s no way to get the calling card on either Xbox One or PC. While this information isn’t exactly the best news, especially for players on those platforms, it does make sense given the Alpha’s exclusivity.

Here’s hoping that at some point Activision releasing the calling card for everyone because, even though it’s not something as major as a weapon blueprint, it’s still exclusive content that doesn’t need to be exclusive.

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

Activision released a handy graphic to explain to PC players what they’ll need.

Black Ops Cold War competitive PC specs

  • 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.
