The most major changes come in terms of map fixes and tuning of challenges. Fortunately for players, the Season Two Reloaded update also comes with new Easter eggs in the Outbreak mode. Finally, of all the major changes, the Dead Wire nerf stands out the most.

According to the patch notes by Treyarch, the developers have added new audio logs and radio transmissions to the Ural Mountains map. Therefore, if players are replaying the main Easter egg in the Outbreak mode, they can be on the lookout for all the new intel.

The new map changes include fixes in the Alpine map where, in some cases, players could fall out of the map. Another fix comes in the Golova map, where players reported getting stuck in a planter. Treyarch has also fixed a hilarious glitch involving golden chests that allowed players to boost their vehicles high into the air.

Objective and progress changes in Black Ops Cold War

The first change comes in the Dragon Relic side objective in Zombies. The rocket thrusters will now inflict damage on players if they stand too close to it. Therefore, after completing the objective, one should be cautious about standing at a distance while the rocket takes off.

Next, Treyarch has also made changes to the Holdout objective by reducing its time by 30 seconds. It has also made some map changes to make the Holdout objective easier, something that was termed the toughest objective by Black Ops Cold War players. On the other hand, Treyarch has increased the damage inflicted by hellhounds in the Defend objective, making it more difficult.

Lastly, the most exciting change now enables players to earn player XP and Battle Pass progression through Dead Ops Arcade 3. This has been a fan favorite mode in Black Ops Cold War Zombies, and grinding it has now also become rewarding.
