With patch v1.04 that went live on October 30th, Treyarch made some major buffs and nerfs to guns in Black Ops 4.

The main change was nerfing ARs and buffing SMGs to bring the two guns closer together in power level, but just about every class of gun was changed in some way.

Here’s an in-depth rundown of OpTic Gaming win first NA CWL 2K tournament of Black Ops 4 season – recap and final placements

Here are a few of his preferred setups:

For people who want to be aggressive, the Maddox with both Quickdraw 1 and 2 is a good choice. Even though the Maddox is an AR, it works well close range and Ace has Fast Reload on it to really let him tear through opponents.

He says he feels the Maddox is “the best SMG class, even though it isn’t an SMG.”

For people who prefer a bit slower, more methodical pace, he recommends trying out the VKM 750. An LMG, the VKM isn’t one of the most popular guns but can be incredibly powerful. Once a player unlocks High Caliber 1 and 2, only a couple shots are needed with the VKM.

He uses quick draw with it to lessen the time it takes to look down the sight and also uses Gung-Ho to quickly jump out of a sprint.

The final gun is the Auger with High Caliber. The Tactical Rifle absolutely shreds people with the improved bullets. 

In addition, he runs Fast Mags to improve the slow reload of the gun and uses Scavenger to make sure he has enough bullets to reach a killstreak.

Black Ops Cold War weapons & perks changes revealed for Zombies

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.
