The lack of Zombies content has been a major issue for players in Season 3. From the looks of it, the reloaded update won’t change this narrative, and will primarily focus on multiplayer content.

Considering that there weren’t any remakes in Season 2 or at the beginning of Season 3, we might witness some more map remakes apart from Standoff. As per leaks, the remakes of Firing Range, Summit, Jungle, and Hijacked are already in the works. Hence, the developers might release them with the Season 3 reloaded update.

A desert-like map named Dunes, and several locations from the rumored Ural Mountains Warzone map are yet to release for the Fireteam game mode. It is unlikely that all these Fireteam maps will be added to the games in the next update. However, there’s a high chance of the arrival of Zoo.

Prominent leakers in the community have time and again talked about Treyarch‘s interest in adding Black Ops 2 content to its latest title. Therefore, the developer might add some classic weapons and features soon.

New weapons, equipment, and scorestreaks coming in Season 3

Following its synchronization with Modern Warfare and Warzone, the arsenal in BOCW has become great. With the upcoming update, it might get even better with the addition of some melee weapons, launchers, and snipers.

As for now, the game files comprise the CZ 75 Pistol, Scorpion, the FAL, the Dragunov, and the Galil. Of course, all of these weapons won’t arrive together in Season 3. Regardless, even a single weapon from this list will be enough to excite the veterans.

Alongside these classics, the game files have also hinted at some new weapons. These include a fast burst AR, a spray and pray SMG, and a slow fire LMG,

Last, but not least, equipment and scorestreaks such as Razor Wire, EMP grenades, Claymores, and Sentry Guns might make their way to BOCW in Season 3.
