Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Year 2 Content Includes Fan-Favorite Map
Call of Duty Season 2 is currently coming to Vanguard and Warzone, but interestingly, 2020’s Black Ops Cold War is also getting new content. Treyarch has announced that a “new” map, assault rifle, and cosmetic set will arrive in Black Ops Cold War on March 4.
While the map featured in Black Ops Cold War isn’t technically a new map, players can enjoy an updated version of the WMD map from Black Ops 1. The snow map was originally set in an abandoned military facility where a secret lab was working on building the Nova 6 weapons.
WMD is a fan-favorite map with a design that is great for all playstyles. The map has verticality for snipers who want to crouch somewhere with a good line of sight, buildings for close combat, and open lines of sight for long-range firefights.
In terms of new weapons, Treyarch has announced the addition of the Vargo 52 assault rifle, which is a weapon that many players have been able to unlock before by completing an in-game challenge. Here’s how to unlock the new Vargo 52 assault rifle. The Vargo 52 is described as a fully automatic assault rifle with a high rate of fire. The weapon is built to deal damage in mid-range combat, with improved muzzle velocity and solid handling for consistent fire control.
For players not interested in unlocking the game, a new Vargo 52 bundle has been added to the store. The Vargo 52 ferrofluid weapon blueprint can be obtained as part of the new Tracer Pack: Ferro Fury Reactive Mastercraft. The pack will be available on March 4 in the Black Ops Cold War and Warzone in-game stores. This is an 8-piece set that also includes two other weapon blueprints, an amulet, a calling card, a sticker, a grid, and a gesture.
While the new content may come as a surprise to an older Call of Duty game, players have also seen the Black Ops 1 jungle map in the WMD game files prior to this announcement. It’s likely that Black Ops Cold War will get more maps, weapons, and sets in the future.
