Secret new Warzone contract adds RC-XD from Black Ops Cold War

Thanks to a new contract that was secretly added to Warzone on November 10, the classic RC-XD killstreak from Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is now available in the popular battle royale title. Here’s what you need to know.

The release of Black Ops Cold War is set to send shockwaves throughout Warzone, and we may already be seeing the first effects of that after the RC-XD was discovered to have been added in the battle royale.

The iconic killstreak, which has been a part of the Call of Duty franchise since Black Ops 1, was spotted in-game after Warzone’s November 9 patch went live, even though there was no mention of it in the official patch notes.

There is a catch, however: the item is only obtainable, at least currently, in the game’s Training Mode via a special new contract that cannot be activated or completed in the game’s live modes.

Warzone Detection Contract

Activision
Players have to find the new Detection contract in Warzone’s training mode if they want to use the RC-XD.

With the recent update, a new contract called Detection was added to the Warzone training space.

The steps are relatively simple and right now it’s one of the easiest contracts to complete – players are tasked with finding a chest on the map, which completes the objective and yields a usable RC-XD.

  1. Load up Warzone Training Mode.
  2. Find the contract icon on the map that has a radioactive-looking symbol on it and accept it.
  3. Hold down your tactical item button, which will deploy a modified heartbeat sensor.
  4. Follow the dot on the sensor until you find the special Radioactive Cache.
  5. Open it and you’ll receive the RC-XD.

A visual demonstration of how to complete this contract, and a look at the RC-XD in-game, can be found in the video below, courtesy of YouTuber ‘Ulterior Covert.’

The actual RC-XD in-and-of-itself operates very similarly to the one found in Black Ops Cold War. Players can speed boost, jump, and detonate just like normal, and it’s even the same physical model as the one found in multiplayer.

That being said, its detonation is a bit different. Instead of a simple, giant explosion, the bomb will explode and release a cloud of poison gas, which will disorient, disable, and damage enemies for a short amount of time.

While it was always expected that BOCW’s scorestreaks would find their way into Warzone, much like Modern Warfare’s did, this now officially confirms it. It also makes sense that it would be added in the training mode first, to give players a chance to familiarize themselves with how to work the item.

The only question that remains is when the RC-XD, along with the other streaks, will be available in the battle royale’s live modes. The likeliest date for that is December 10, which is when the BOCW x Warzone integration takes place.

Best Type 63 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Type 63 is capable of dishing out some incredible damage thanks to its methodical firing pattern and excellent precision. Here are all the attachments you should be using when running and gunning with the Type 63. 

If you’re a fan of Black Ops Cold War’s Tactical Rifle class or a player that prefers a more methodical approach to combat, then the Type 63 is one weapon you’ll want to focus on leveling up. While burst fire weapons like the M16 and AUG continue to dominate the game, there have been a number of players picking up this reliable rifle. 

Despite its slower rate of fire, this tactical rifle is capable of killing an enemy in just two shots (one body shot and one headshot). The Type 63 is a great option for those that want the damage of a sniper, but wish to be more active in their playstyle. If you have a good trigger finger and decent aim, you’ll definitely want to add the Type 63 to your collection. 

In order to help you get the most kills with the Type 63, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

The Type 63 is one of the most lethal weapons in the entire game.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Type 63 in Black Ops Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex 
  • Spetsnaz Compensator 
  • 18.3” Strike Team
  • KGB Target Designator 
  • Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip
  • 30 RND
  • Gru Elastic Wrap
  • KGB Pad

While you can still make a decent Type 63 loadout without the extra three attachment slots given by the Gunfighter wildcard, the extra kit makes this build extremely comfy. First up is the Millstop Reflex. This is one of the only optics available that doesn’t clutter the screen or provide a great deal of magnification. 

While the 2.0x and 4.0x optics may give you greater precision on the game’s larger maps and modes, the vast majority favor close-quarter engagements. This is also why the 18.3” Strike Team barrel has been chosen. This handy attachment increases your fire rate by 11%, allowing you to get out more shots onto the target. 

It also increases your damage by 9%. While this may seem like an incremental increase, it does make a noticeable difference when combined with a higher rate of fire. To alleviate the Type 63’s horizontal/vertical recoil, we’ve attached both the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip.

The Type 63 may not be the most popular gun, but its high DPS makes it a worthy pick.

These attachments make the Type 63 incredibly accurate across all ranges, allowing you to beam opponents with laser-like precision. The bullets will always form in a tight circle around your target, so there’s no need to wrestle with any recoil. Simply point and shoot. 

As you may know by now, visibility in Black Ops Cold War can be rather poor. Even if you follow our visibility guide, there will still be times where you get caught out by pesky head glitches. Fortunately, the KGB Target Designator adds 60% Reveal Distance when aiming down sights. 

The Gru Elastic Wrap is one of the most important attachments as it increases ADS time (30%), Flinch Resistance (90%), and enables aiming while going prone. Combine this with the Sprint to Fire and additional Aim Walking Movement Speed of the KGB Pad, and you have an incredibly mobile rifle that is capable of blistering fast kill times.
