Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Season 1 was initially delayed until December 16, 2020. Therefore, Treyarch has a lot of time on its hands to fix up Season 2. Players expect a lot of exciting content in the new season with all the leaks floating around.

Season 2 of Black Ops Cold War will start once the Season 1 Battle Pass expires. Currently, it says the Pass will reset in 28 days. Therefore, players can expect the new season to start from February 24.

The expected time for the update is 11 pm PT or 2 am ET.

New weapons

There are four new weapons that players can expect to make an appearance in Season 2. The first one is the Tec-9 SMG, a small weapon similar to the Grease Gun from Call of Duty: World War 2. It should have a decent fire-rate and range but it’ll be interesting to see how it plays alongside the already dominant Mac-10.

The second weapon is the Galil. It is a weapon that was present in most CoD games and as an Assault Rifle, it is pretty versatile in most game modes.

The last two weapons are not something players will be too excited about. The M249 SAW and the Dragonov sniper rifle are the other two leaked weapons. LMGs are seldom the meta in-game, and the Dragonov is really not the best choice of a sniper rifle in CoD games. Unless the devs make some solid tweaks, these additions will hardly excite players.
