It appears that a new playlist called “Sticks and Stones” could soon be coming to Call of Duty: WWII

The classic game mode appeared in the Multiplayer menu of the game before mysteriously disappearing, leading players to believe that it had been added early by mistake.

Twitter user @g9james_ tweeted out a picture of the game mode appearing on his screen as he described how he came across it in the first place.

“umm, not sure if this was suppose to be in the game yet, but I tried to play it and it put me in a lobby of kill confirmed on shipment. Then it made me do a patch update and it changed back to shipment 24/7”


According to the picture, the mysteriously added game mode could accommodate a party size of 1-2 players and required an overall player count of 3-6.

The description on the screen reads:

Score points with kills from Defective Rifle Grenades & the M30 Rifle Bullet. Bankrupt enemies with the Throwing Knife.

It is not yet clear when or if the game mode will actually be added to WWII. We will provide any official information as it is announced in the coming days by developer Sledgehammer Games.

Sticks and Stones first appeared as a wager game mode in the first Black Ops title, before coming back as a party game mode in Black Ops II.

Here is an official description of the mode, as provided by the Call of Duty Wiki page:

Sticks and Stones consists of six players competing in a Free-For-All style game. Everyone’s loadout consists a CrossbowBallistic knife, and a Tomahawk/Combat Axe. Like a Free-For-All game, points are earned from kills, and the match ends when the time runs out. However, if a player manages to kill another with a Tomahawk/Combat Axe, they will “bankrupt” the target. Also, if a player commits suicide with Crossbow, they humiliate themselves and get “bankrupted”. If a player is “bankrupted”, they lose all points earned so far in the match; they will have to start over from zero points. To win, a player must reach one of the three highest scores once the time limit is reached.

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

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 1800X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce RTX 3070
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.
