Players who are just starting out with COD probably won’t like the graphics in Cold War. They are more vibrant and colorful but less cinematic than Modern Warfare. That being said, the game footage currently available is from the alpha build and the game could get better in the spectrums that it currently disappoints in.

Five things you missed in the Call of Duty: Cold War multiplayer reveal

The return of Gunsmith

Gunsmith from Modern Warfare will make a return in Cold War. This fan-favorite element allows players to customize guns at their will. It provides a large variety of attachments that can uniquely tweak every weapon to suit the distinctive gameplay styles of different players.

Slide Cancelling

Sliding around the map in COD is one of the most commonly experienced features. Slide cancellation refers to the sprinting and crouching that allows players to slide and simply stop to end the movement. Astonishingly, players who played the alpha build experienced no aim penalties being added for continuous sliding with haywire movement.

Players can rest assured that the public beta will not exploit this slide glitch anymore.

More than two factions

While this might not come as a surprise to many, players who are transitioning from Modern Warfare will probably find it odd. The factions that can be seen till now are MI6, DGI, CIA, and Spetsnaz.

Classical Modes retained

Fans of the franchise were concerned that Treyarch would remove some of the older modes with the introduction of three new ones. Treyarch has confirmed otherwise in their blog:

Fans of traditional 6v6 combat can expect their favorite MP modes to return, including Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint, Free-for-All, Kill Confirmed, and Search & Destroy. Competitive fans will also be happy to know Control is returning from Black Ops 4.”

Jugger-Nog returns to Zombies

The community expected new zombies to come with the latest Black Ops game and that is set to happen. Jugger-nog is also making a comeback after it was removed in BO4. From the looks of this, buyable perks and endings seem to be back with what seems like a more horror setting in Zombies mode.
