Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has finally been announced after months of rumours and leaks, but there's still quite a bit we don't know about the game's multiplayer modes. Will it be similar to the multiplayer offering seen in 2019's Modern Warfare, or will Treyarch continue to push forward and experiment with new modes and ways to play?
From the sound of it, Black Ops Cold War will be taking a step back towards a more traditional Call Of Duty experience. A reliable Call Of Duty leaker called Tom Henderson recently took to Twitter to share new information involving specialist weapons and scorestreaks, and there are one or two blasts from the past.
This could also be the first year where we get new scorestreaks added throughout the games cycle, as there's still several more streaks that have been designed but not yet implemented.- Tom Henderson (@_TomHenderson_) September 2, 2020
Henderson claims that specialist weapons - a divisive aspect of Black Ops 3 and Black Ops IIII will be making a comeback. However, he notes that these special weapons won't be attainable in the same way, and will instead be earned through scorestreaks.
The leaker also suggests that there are currently 18 scorestreak weapons in Black Ops Cold War, including the Flamethrower, Hand Cannon, Bow, Grenade Launcher and Death Machine. It sounds like new streaks could be added throughout the game's cycle via updates, as Henderson understands that there are "several more" that have been designed but not yet implemented. This would be a first for the franchise, so it'll be interesting to see if Treyarch does have plans to add more streaks over time.
Henderson also dropped a few other interesting nuggets of information, including the welcome news that the popular Nuketown map will be making a comeback. He claims that the Nuketown in Black Ops Cold War will be nearly identical to the one in the original Black Ops, and that we could see DLC packs containing more classic maps, including Summit, Jungle, and Firing Range.
Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is expected to launch on November 13th, so Activision and Treyarch will no doubt have more news to share soon.
