Black Ops Cold War and Warzone updates include the CARV.2 tactical rifle
New playlists and fixes for stability issues also detailed
The latest Black Ops Cold War and Warzone updates have introduced a new weapon, the CARV.2 tactical rifle.
Available via the weapon’s in-game challenge and the Plastik Prototype store bundle, the burst-fire weapon “stands out in the tactical rifle class with its high bullet velocity output, offering powerful damage, solid recoil control, and a large ammo pool from the start”.
To unlock it via in-game challenge, users need to rapidly kill two or more players in 10 different completed matches.
Alternatively, the Plastik Prototype bundle costs 1200 COD Points. It also includes the Konsole blueprint of the new rifle, a Lazer Gun emblem, a Launch Control sticker, and a Brick charm.
Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 3 launched with three new weapons (PPSh-41 SMG, Swiss K31 sniper rifle, Ballistic Knife). The AMP63 machine pistol and Baseball Bat melee weapon will be added mid-season too.
The latest Black Ops Cold War patch also includes playlist updates and various fixes for stability issues, which are detailed in full below.
Activision Blizzard confirmed this week that Sledgehammer Games is leading development of 2021’s premium Call of Duty game, which chief operating officer Daniel Alegre said “is looking great and on track for its fall release”.
He added: “This is a built for next generation experience with stunning visuals across campaign, multiplayer and co-operative modes of play, designed to both integrate with and enhance the existing COD ecosystem.”
Activision president Rob Kostich also said the game will include some “really fun integration” with Warzone.
