Call of Duty title in recent history to exclude a prestige system, instead favoring a Battle Pass that will soon be implemented with the first post-launch season.

Without the ability to prestige in Modern Warfare, dedicated fans have been questioning when the recently announced Battle Pass would be introduced.

Set to include both a free and premium stream of content exclusive to the seasonal system, we now have a rough idea as to when the first iteration of the Battle Pass will be made available.

In Activision Blizzard’s quarterly earnings call, it was revealed that the Modern Warfare Battle Pass would be launching alongside the very first season in December.

“We will support other key franchises with a stream of content, services, events, and features,” the company explained. “This includes our new in-game system for Modern Warfare, which begins in December, slightly later than originally planned.”

Restructuring the traditional roll-out of post-launch content in Call of Duty, Infinity Ward has assured that all additional maps, modes, and weapons will be free of charge. In fact, the only form of content that will supposedly be behind a pay-wall is set to be purely cosmetic.

Upon the release of the initial Battle Pass in December, there will be two-tiers of unlockable cosmetics that can be earned simply through playing the game and earning CoD Points. 

In a series first, rather than opening loot boxes and having a random chance at items, players will be able to comb through the Battle Pass and get a glimpse at all featured content.

Each season will supposedly be themed and feature its own unique slate of vanity items. From weapon camos to animated player cards and even fresh designs for the numerous in-game operators, there are plenty of areas that seasonal content could target. Recent leaks have unveiled what could be the first influx of post-launch items.

Modern Warfare is even the first game in Call of Duty history to feature customizable sprays and emotes that can be utilized in the middle of combat.

While no specific date is locked in place just yet, the Call of Duty community can rest assured that the wait for the Battle Pass won’t last much longer.

Additionally, Infinity Ward announced that two new maps and the popular Hardpoint game mode would all be coming in a free update on November 8.

The QBZ-83 is may not be as strong or as accurate as the AK-47, but its superior mobility and handling make it a great pick. Here all the perks, attachments, and equipment you need to push this assault rifle to its peak. 

Whether you’re looking to level up every gun to grab those ultra-rare camos or just wanting to give the QBZ-83 a go, then you’ll want to use this loadout. This assault rifle is often overlooked by a lot of players and it’s currently one of the least used guns in the assault rifle category. However, if you’re willing to put in the effort into learning the QBZ, you’ll find that it is a pretty well-round rifle. 

This loadout boosts the QBZ-83’s already great speed, but also increases the gun’s accuracy and firepower. If you’re after an AR that can go toe to toe with the game’s SMGs, then look no further. In order to help you get the most out of the QBZ-83, we’ve put together a reliable loadout you can use to get those deadly Scorestreaks.

Best QBZ-83 loadout for Black Ops Cold War

The recent FFAR 1 and M16 nerfs have made the QBZ-83 a more viable option.
  • Muzzle: Infantry Compensator 
  • Barrel: 15.5” Reinforced Heavy
  • Underbarrel:Foregrip
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap 
  • Stock: Raider Stock


  • 1911


  • Stimshot
  • Semtex
  • Field Mic


  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket + Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Assassin + Scavenger 
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Ghost


  • Perk Greed

Due to the QBZ-83 having a very clear default sight, we’ve saved the attachment slot to make a much more comfy build. The Infantry Compensator and Foregrip help control both the gun’s horizontal and vertical recoil. This enables you to remain accurate at medium to long ranges. 

Adding to this is the 15.5” Heavy. Not only does this attachment increase the AR’s bullet velocity by a significant 40%, but it also increases the gun’s damage range by 100%. Whether you’re planning to play on the game’s bigger maps or just wanting to increase your kill potential, then the Reinforced Heavy is a must. 

Rounding things off at the bottom, is the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raider Stock. These attachments increase ADS and sprint to fire time, allowing you to aggressively rush your foes without having to worry about sluggish performance. 

In terms of equipment, the standard Stimshot, Semtex, and Field Mic have been chosen. These items will keep you on your feet and enable you to get the drop on any potential targets.

The QBZ-83’s speed and firepower makes for some blisteringly fast kills.

This loadout uses Perk Greed, which allows players to take six perks. The combination of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask will keep you safe from any explosives and noxious gas. These perks are important for most loadouts, but especially hyper-aggressive ones that prefer the run and gun approach to combat.

Meanwhile, Assassin reveals high priority targets and enables you to get the drop on any enemies who are on killstreaks. Scavenger also replenishes the QBZ-83’s ammo from fallen players, so you’ll never have to hunt for another gun when your ammo is low. 

Lastly, Ghost and Ninja keep your movements hidden from prying eyes and enable you to go for those sneaky flanks. After all, this loadout favors both close to mid-range firefights, so don’t be afraid to get into the very thick of a fight.
