Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War and Warzone recently released the Season 3 Reloaded update. With this new update came a ton of new content in both the titles. This included new weapons like the Ballastic knife and the pistol AMP-63. There are also new ’80s Action Hero’ operators in the game, like John Rambo and John McClane.

Verdansk has new POIs, and several new events are up in Black Ops Cold War. Completing these events has individual rewards of their own and players will need to grind hard to unlock them all. However, all the new content may have distracted players from a few changes Treyarch has made to the game. Some are just maps returning to playlists and mode rosters, while others are just to make the game a better experience.

One of the significant ones is the connectivity counter. In the starting menu of Black Ops Cold War, which players bring up to change classes or leave the game, they can now spot the connectivity counter. These counters show both ping and packet loss in the current match that the players are in.

Slide Canceling is back in Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War

Slide canceling is a broken feature in all Call of Duty games. The feature simply has a lot of positives and players usually abuse it to make it difficult for others. However, the last update before Season 3 Reloaded happened, heavily nerfed the feature.

Players had to finish up the slide and that brought down the accuracy of the slide shots. However, it seems after this mid-season update, slide canceling is back in Black Ops Cold War.

Lastly, there is a new bundle in the game. However, it does not appear in the shop and this bundle is free. To unlock it, players need to select the blueprint section of pistols and swipe down. There they will find the Ocean Breeze blueprint, which they can claim from the free bundle.

This bundle also comes with 15 minutes Double XP Token. Free items never hurt and very few will end up noticing this blueprint so claim it before they remove it from the list.
