LATEST - Black Ops Cold War Update Introduces Rapid Fire Moshpit Game Mode

A new Playlist Update is here for Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, and it's a big one!

This update features the new Rapid Fire Moshpit game mode, which will be played on Apocalypse, Crossroads Strike, Express, Garrison, Nuketown, and Raid.

This game mode will keep your radar on at all times, and disable the Ghost perk.

Cold War Suppressors Are Fixed

Another new patch has dropped for Warzone today and this update has introduced a couple of key fixes.

Firstly, the Cold War suppressor attachments have been fixed and their stats have been reverted back to what they were before the launch of Season Two.

In addition to this, Baker's fourth Operator Mission should track correctly and a number of smaller UI fixes have been introduced.

You can find the full, albeit small, patch notes from Raven Software below:

Agency/GRU/Wrapped Suppressors have been reverted to their previous state

  • Fourth Operator Mission for Baker with the objective to eliminate 15 enemies using a weapon with an attached 2x magnified scope or greater now tracks correctly

  • Small updates to various UI elements such as icons, store bundles, player level up, among others

This update went live around 11:00 EST / 16:00 GMT on all platforms.

A New Texture Pack Is Here

On top of this update, PS4 Pro, Xbox One X, Xbox Series X, and PS5 players are getting a new Texture Pack that should bring a new level of detail to Verdansk.

High-Resolution Pack 3 is bringing 4K visuals to Warzone and "supports the highest level of detail" available for the weapons and Operators.

It is just over 8GB in size on all platforms and with Warzone still being a backwards compatibility title on next-gen consoles, is it even worth it?

What's the Next Warzone Update?

The March 1 Call of Duty Warzone update was massive, and you can read more about it below.

But after the announcement, Raven Software revealed another new update would be coming this week - so what should players expect?

This new patch could go a balance direction, bringing weapon buffs and nerfs as needed, as we don't expect another patch of new content pushed into Warzone this week.

2XP + 2WXP WEEKEND

  • Starting on Feb 26, all players get Double XP and Double Weapon XP all weekend long in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone to celebrate the kickoff of Season Two! Gain twice as much progress toward your next Prestige and max out those weapons through 10AM PT Mar 1. PlayStation players also get an extra 24 hours of 2XP and 2WXP starting Feb 25.

MODES

  • Rebirth Resurgence Extreme (Launch Week)
    • Up to 99 players will drop onto Rebirth Island for an incredibly frenetic fight for supremacy, as they look to eliminate every last member of enemy squads to prevent them from getting a second, third, or even forth chance at revenge. Just like Resurgence, squad members can spawn back in if their Rebirth Countdown hits zero and at least one of their allies is still alive, and specific Caches around the map will refresh their items frequently to ensure there is no shortage of firepower around the island.
  • Exfiltration (In Season)
    • In this mode, a portable radio crackles into life, coming online somewhere in Verdansk. The Operator who secures this radio and holds onto it for a sufficient period of time automatically wins the game for their squad. To ensure their exfil isn’t by the book, anyone holding the radio is marked on the Tac Map as if they were under a Most Wanted Contract (High Value Target) with all Operators also receiving intel on how much longer the current radio holder has until they win. Other than this new win condition, the same Battle Royale rules apply. Expect a circle collapse and a winner to be determined by last squad standing, should nobody receive an early exfil with the radio.

Connection Problems

Following the release of the update, the developers at Raven Software have acknowledged that some players were experiencing issues. Thankfully, this is being looked into:

"We're aware of the connection issues on #Warzone. The issue is being investigated. We will provide an update soon." Raven told fans on Twitter.

Most reports from fans concern the Savannah error.

This particular error message can occur when two players are attempting to play the game with conflicting versions of the game installed.

So, if anyone in the lobby has the older, more outdated version of the game, it'll throw up the Savannah error message.

The only fix is to download the latest game update before you continue playing.

Another New Warzone Patch?

Raven Software have revealed that another new Warzone patch is on the way later this week - so stay tuned to the action here!

BACK AGAIN: Warzone will feature two updates this week, according to Raven Software

With the size of this update, we expect a follow-up to be much smaller, but that doesn't mean it won't be important.
