Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s mix of weapons is the usual mix of guns you’d expect from a COD title, though the structuring may be different to what you expect. To help you get prepared for a return to the Cold War, we’ve compiled a list of all the weapons in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War that have been shown so far.
All weapons in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
Assault rifles, submachine guns, snipers, light machine guns, and tactical rifles comprise the primary weapon categories you’ll be able to pick from. Pistols, shotguns, and launchers are secondary weapons in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, meaning you can equip a rifle and shotgun without the need for an Overkill-style perk. Below you’ll find a list of all weapons in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War that we’ve had confirmed from the recent multiplayer test. As more information arrives, we'll add to the list with the extra guns shown off.
Sidearms that are quick to draw but usually have limited magazines and lower damage.
Designed for up close and personal use, clearing corners and dishing damage in meaty chunks. Because they’re secondaries, shotguns aren’t very powerful from what we’ve seen of Cold War.
- Gallo SA12
- Hauer 77
Primarily designed to take down Scorestreaks and vehicles, the launchers come with minimal ammo, but deal massive explosive damage. Some can also lock on to enemy targets.
- Cigma 2
Submachine Guns (SMGs)
Quick mobility and aim times make SMGs prime choices for those who like to get around the map fast and deal damage quickly.
- Type 821
Assault Rifles (ARs)
Your standard all-rounder weapons. Usually fully automatic and designed to work at all ranges.
- Krig 6
Essentially the Marksman Rifles of previous games, these are (typically) semi-auto or burst fire weapons meant for range and folks with precise aim.
- Type 63
Long range, scoped weapons that deal massive damage, with low fire rates. Often capable of earning one-hit kills to the body.
- LW3 - Tundra
- Pelington 703
Light Machine Guns (LMGs)
Beefy guns that reduce mobility but deal high damage and come with large magazines or drums to unload from.
- Stoner 63
From the multiplayer tests so far, a lot of streamers and pros who went hands-on with the multiplayer got the impression that SMGs are going to be the guns of choice in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. With rapid aim-down-sights times and not much damage drop off, these speedy guns could be the staples instead of their AR bigger brothers.
That completes our list of all weapons in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. We’re certain there are plenty of others Treyarch are waiting to reveal for the full release of the game, so we’ll do our best to update this list with any more guns as and when they’re confirmed.
