With the Call of Duty League just around the corner, Infinity Ward have revealed that the next “major update” for Modern Warfare is also on the horizon.

Modern Warfare has received a mixed bag of reviews in its short time under the spotlight. Despite being the most played Call of Duty in the franchise’s history, there has been a heap of issues that have needed addressing since the public launch in October. 

And with all eyes expected to be directed to Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare, the developers are keen to have their game polished up and ready to be showcased to the world.

Season One of Modern Warfare has been extended until February 11.

One prominent issue that has been particularly frustrating for the competitive community, is the notorious slide-cancel exploit. Infinity Ward have vowed to fix the movement bug in a future update

Yet, up until this point, there has been no set date — leaving both Call of Duty fans and professional players alike in the dark regarding any improvements. 

However, there is some light at the end of the tunnel. As part of Infinity Ward’s community update that was posted on January 17, the developers revealed that: “We’ve also been working on an update that we’re looking to publish to all platforms next week.”

Moreover, Call of Duty pro, Rhys ‘Rated’ Price, revealed that a patch for slide-canceling in Modern Warfare was inbound and scheduled to be pushed live on January 22 (a mere two days before the CDL is set to debut). 

Given the above, Infinity Ward’s intention could be to roll out one major update in a neat package on January 22.

It’s been over a month since the last major update for Modern Warfare, and with Season 1 now extended until later in February, some fans were getting impatient with the lack of updates.

Although the extension will give some players the chance to hit the top rank on the battle pass, others just want the new content to be added sooner rather than later.


The update might also appease the competitive community. Pro players, Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price and Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat, highlighted that Infinity Ward were yet to address some issues which affect the competitive aspect of Modern Warfare.

Alongside fixing the slide-cancel exploit, Infinity Ward are set to push out a fix for other known issues. 

Per the Modern Warfare Tracker, the developers have addressed a number of concerns, such as: Ground War glitches, killstreak bugs and Hardpoint zone fixes (to name a few).

How to view your Black Ops Cold War stats on PC, PS5 & Xbox

Call of Duty is enjoyed by some of the most competitive gamers around and, of course, competitors want to analyze their performances. Fortunately, there are multiple ways to view your Black Ops Cold War stats, no matter your system of choice.

If you played Modern Warfare or Warzone, then chances are that you’re already somewhat familiar with checking your CoD statistics. Aside from the in-game client, using the website COD Tracker was a very popular way to check, and compare, your numbers when away from your console or PC.

That remains an option for Black Ops Cold War in 2020 and beyond, but players can also check their stats in-game and on the official Call of Duty app. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, but they all help you paint a clearer picture of your performance.

Whether you simply want to track your progress as a player or compare yourself to the game’s best, we’ve broken the two ways, outside of the in-game client, that you can check your Black Ops Cold War statistics.

COD Tracker

COD Tracker gives you an overview of your stats with the options to dive deeper.

COD Tracker’s offering is likely the most thorough option around, as you are able to track a ton of statistics, filter by mode, map, and weapon while comparing yourself to global leaderboards. 

Like Warzone, you can even go back through many of your recent matches to analyze individual performances.

  1. Head to COD Tracker and enter either your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  2. Navigate to the Black Ops Cold War tag
  3. Check out how you stack up against the competition

Call of Duty Companion

The CoD Companion App is a nice alternative for people looking to check numbers on their phone.

The Call of Duty Companion app is a very easy way to access many of your statistics without turning on your PC or console. While it doesn’t have as much data as COD Tracker might give you (and rounds K/D a decimal sooner than Tracker), the UI is very intuitive, with pie charts and line graphs for your numbers and whatnot.

  1. Search “Call of Duty Companion” on your device’s app store or through their website
  2. Download and open
  3. Sign in with your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  4. Navigate to “Player,” then scroll to “Black Ops Cold War” instead of “Modern Warfare” from the drop-down menu

While BOCW’s in-game client may feel somewhat limited in its options for analyzing your performance and place on the leaderboards, these two options each provide a ton of information.

Both provide similar degrees of data with the principal differences coming in their presentation, so it’s really up to you which you prefer to use.
