New Weapon coming to Black Ops Cold War this week

Jump To

Following last week's mid-season update, Season 2 Reloaded, more content will be coming to Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War and Warzone this week.


As part of the roadmap for the new update, it was revealed that a new weapon and a new Operator would be joining the games before Season 3 begins.

Those things are arriving this week.

Black Ops Cold War Update This Week

While there shouldn't be an actual update for you to download, new content will be coming to Treyarch's shooter this week.

As listed by Charlie Intel, various new things will come to the Cold War game:

  • New Feature: Gunsmith Customs
  • New Mode: Gunfight Tournaments
  • New Mode: Gunfight Blueprints
  • New Sniper: ZRG 20mm
  • New Operator: Rivas

You'll be able to get the ZRG 20mm by completing a challenge, which has yet to be revealed, and the Rivas Operator should be available to everyone.

We will confirm what the challenges are as soon as the update is released later in the week.

Warzone Update

You should be able to get both the ZRG 20mm Sniper and Rivas Operator in Warzone in the same way as you would in Black Ops Cold War.

The challenge to unlock the sniper might be a little different, but we'll be sure to let you know what it is once it's revealed.

As for the new modes and features, they will be exclusive to Cold War. There will inevitably be a playlist update later in the week and more bundles added to the store for you to check out.

Update Release Date

We would expect the new sniper and Operator to go live in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War on Thursday, April 8, alongside the weekly playlist update.

You can expect them to go live around 1pm ET/6pm BST, and we'll let you know as soon as they're out.
