Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War can be a challenging game, more so for beginners. It can be difficult even for Modern Warfare players since movement and other dynamics are a lot different in BOCW from what they are used to.

However, beginners can get better at the game with practice and some guidance. While skill-based matchmaking (SBMM) might seem like a problem, it will not change anytime soon. So, the best way to learn the game is to adapt to the system it adheres to.

Besides that, players should keep some things in mind to boost the level of their gameplay. Call of Duty demands a peculiar style of realistic gameplay that other FPS games do not abide by. Also, because of its popularity, the skill level of the average CoD player is higher than most other long running franchises.

  1. Investigate and experiment with your settings: Most beginners players ignore settings right from the start. While the default settings might suit you, it is advisable to explore them before starting out. Play private matches with a variety of settings to know your sweet spot. Sensitivity settings and audio boosts are crucial, and having the perfect settings can make the right difference in your matches.
  2. Know your perks: Perks are a very important part of CoD. While making the loadouts, choose the perks for each of them wisely. To keep yourself off the enemy’s radars, you can opt for Ghost and Cold-Blooded. Equipping the right perks can help you hide from UAVs and Chopper Gunners. Additionally, increasing your rank fast will help you unlock all the perks.
  3.  Secondary weapon: It is very important for players to choose and use their secondary weapons correctly. When the primary runs out of bullets, you will need to bring out the shotgun or the pistol to get that one quick kill to pick up another weapon. Shotguns are very overpowered guns, so take advantage of them.
  4. Know the meta: Watch a lot of videos from the pros and regular players in the community. Keep a tab on what are the best weapons in the game currently. You might have good aim accuracy, but meta weapons will overpower your skill at some point.
  5.  Using lethals and tacticals: While run and gun might be the style most players opt for in the lobby, only newbies do not use grenades and stuns. Lethals and tacticals are useful not just for dealing damage, but also for recon. If you are on a kill streak and fear the presence of a camper inside a room, drop that stun first and see if it hits somebody. It might just be the strategy to get your first nuclear in the game.
