As with every community events in WWII, Operation: Liberty Strike also features a Patriotic Community Challenge, which will require the collective player-base to get 260 million total match wins to complete and claim a variety of cosmetic items.

Also being introduced in Operation: Liberty Strike is a new game mode called Wanderlust Mosh Pit:

In this new mode, every player starts with a random weapon with random attachments, and you get a new random weapon every time you switch. What does that mean? Total and unpredictable chaos. Players that have complete mastery of every weapon, and excel in moments of uncertainty, will excel in this new limited-time game mode. Play before it goes away on July 24.

Playing this new game mode will be one of many ways that players will be able to earn additional XP points throughout this Community Event. 

Each week, developer Sledgehammer Games will release a schedule for all of the ongoing promotional events. Here is the schedule for Week 1 (July 2nd-9th):

As part of the announcement, Activision and Sledgehammer also released a preview trailer for all the things to come in Operation: Liberty Strike.

Bizarre Black Ops Cold War exploit completely removes sprint-fire delay

A strange exploit has been found with the Gung-Ho perk in Black Ops Cold War, which removes the sprint-fire delay from all weapons in-game.

As with other online multiplayer shooters, Call of Duty players, typically, have to have quick reaction speed in order to win gunfights and pick up kills against the enemy team.

While this reaction time can be difficult to improve, some players have found another way to gain an advantage over their opponents with a bug that allows you to fire the first few bullets even earlier.

This exploit was found with the Gung-Ho perk, which allows players to shoot their weapons while sprinting. The Cold War perk has been a go-to for those who love to run and gun, but this new bug completely cuts out the time it takes to start firing.

One Redditor u/b3nb0i shared this unusual glitch with the perk, revealing that, with the help of lethal equipment such as semtex, it’s possible to cancel the sprint-to-fire delay on a gun.

Usually, even with the Gung-Ho perk equipped, there is a small delay in the time it takes to straighten the weapon from the sprint position to be ready to fire.

However, with semtex or another piece of equipment in-hand, the gun is already in a position to fire and cancels the delay, making it quite deadly in any gunfights. It is worth noting that it is not possible to ADS while using this exploit and that players would have to rely on their weapons attachments to make their shots more accurate.

While this strange exploit does require some getting used to, it could still be quite overpowered particularly on maps with short-range engagements such as Nuketown, especially as the grenade will drop if you’re taken down – like how the Martyrdom perk used to work.

As of now, it is unclear whether this was intended to be a feature in Cold War but, if it is found to be a glitch it will likely be patched by Treyarch in one of the future updates.
