How do you improve on an already amazing online multiplayer experience? By adding more guns, of course!

With Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War being released next week, Warzone is getting an upgrade in the form of a larger arsenal, Activision has confirmed.

We've got everything you need to know about this update right here!

Black Ops & Modern Warfare

We recently brought you the news that Warzone now lets you choose between a Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare layout.

It's now been confirmed by CoD's developers that Warzone will soon have the largest library of weapons to choose from in the series' history.

Detailed in a blog post on Call of Duty's official website is the combined character progression system. This encompasses all three of the most recent CoD's; Modern Warfare, Cold War and Warzone.

What this means is that whichever guns you unlock in Modern Warfare and Cold War will be available to use in Warzone. This includes different blueprint variants of primary and secondary weapons.

As Warzone seasons progress, more weapons will become automatically available. This means that players will unlock new guns just for going online on Warzone.

The age-old problem of having to choose between current and past weapons will be a thing of the past.

Can players use Cold War Weapons in Modern Warfare?

In short, no.

The amalgamation of the different CoD's isn't universal, there won't be any crossover between Modern Warfare and Cold War.

NOT UNIVERSAL: Warzone and Cold War won't have crossover like Warzone does

This, Activision explained, is due to Modern Warfare's weaponry being far too advanced for the 1980's setting of Cold War.

In fairness, that's a legitimate reason, it would be a very jarring experience. Furthermore, it would also make Cold War and Modern Warfare's multiplayer experiences too similar.

You will see some indirect crossover though, as weapons like the trusty AK-47 are available in both games anyway.

This is still a revolutionary change and something that is really allowing CoD to stand head and shoulders above its competition.

Release Date

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will be released for PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Series X and Windows PC on 13th November.
