Popular streamer Michael ‘ Call of Duty sub-series had been around since 2011. It’s already seen plenty of players flock to its servers – including Shroud, who has barely played anything else since making his move to streaming on Mixer.

However, the release of the new title hasn’t been completely smooth sailing for Infinity Ward. A number of Call of Duty professionals have aired their frustrations with the maps, game modes, and even grenade usage as the game’s meta takes shapes. Now, though, Shroud has weighed in.

Activision - Call of Duty: Modern WarfareModern Warfare has made a lot of improvements, but shroud doesn’t think it’s perfect yet.

In his YouTube highlight video, ‘The Golden AK’, the former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive professional took a donation from a viewer that asked him about what he’d change in Modern Warfare.

“Add BR (Battle Royale) – does that count?” he joked, before being a little more serious. “No, if I was to change anything, I’d change some of the map design. Some of the map designs are a little too crazy for me. Not all, just some.”

Many players won’t disagree with Shroud’s thoughts on the maps, especially as it’s been a widespread complaint about the game so far.

However, some changes do appear to be around the corner – even though there won’t be tweaks to the maps that were released with the game. Infinity Ward are supposedly lining up a number of classic Modern Warfare series maps as future downloadable content.

Rust could be making a return in Modern Warfare.

He might also get his wish on the battle royale, though, as some leaks have surfaced that suggest that code has been added to the game files alongside the new maps and some new modes.

If it’ll be released, however, is a different story, considering the developers have remained quiet on the possibility since pre-release rumors and leaks suggested it was going to happen.

After revealing Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode back in September, Treyarch has now done a deep dive into all the changes coming to the mode. It seems like, in some regards, it’s going to be a completely different experience this time around.

If you’re excited about Black Ops Cold War’s iteration of Zombies but are hungry for more details, then you’ll be happy to know that Treyarch just delivered.

Thanks to a new blog post, the developer has given fans a deep dive into all the new changes coming to the game. While the developer ended up confirming a number of different features that previously leaked a few days back, they also revealed some wholly new information.

New perks for Zombies

While the developer officially confirmed the six perks that will be available at launch, including the exact statistics they will change, more will be announced when new maps get added to the game, in true Treyarch fashion.

The ones currently implemented, however, are sure to please longtime fans.

  • Jugger-Nog: 50% increase in health
  • Quick Revive: 50% increase in health regen speed
  • Speed Cola: 15% increase in reload speed
  • Stamin-Up: Increase in sprinting speed (percentage unclear)
  • Deadshot Daquri: ADS automatically moves sights to enemy weak spot (aim-assist)
  • Elemental Pop: Every bullet has a chance to apply random Ammo Mod effect

Black Ops Cold War Zombies weapons and scorestreaks

While weapon rarities isn’t new information for Black Ops Cold War Zombies, as it was previously announced by Treyarch during the initial reveal, the developer has finally gone into more detail about what it all means.

Like Warzone, each weapon that you pull from the wall or Mystery Box will be a certain weapon: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. As expected, the higher the weapon rarity, the higher damage it deals and the more attachments it’ll have.

In addition, the mystery box will now contain scorestreaks on top of that, which was easily one of the coolest part of the original reveal trailer.

  • Combat Bow
  • Sentry Turret
  • War Machine
  • Chopper Gunner
  • Self-Revive

Right now, it’s unclear if the only way that players will be able to get their hands on these valuable items will be through the Mystery Box, although previous leaks have indicated that Zombies will also be able to drop them.

All weapons in Black Ops Cold War, including the ones pulled from Mystery Boxes, have rarities.

New Exfil feature

The final feature that Treyarch revealed new details about was the new Exfil feature, which allows players to end their match before they die. According to the devs, you’ll only be able to do this from Round 10 onwards.

That being said, if you’re able to reach the extraction point within the time allotted, you’ll receive extra XP, as well as some Raw Aetherium Crystals, which can be used to upgrade your weapons.

All of this, combined with all the leaks we know including the armor changes, the upgrade system, and the salvage system, which have now all been confirmed by Treyarch, makes it seem like this year’s iteration is going to be wild.
