Treyarch has announced that Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War will receive a mid-season update. However, the update will mostly concern weapon tunings and Treyarch has announced only a few bits about the new content drop coming alongside. Fans of the game were waiting for this weapon tuning update for a long time, and now it is finally here. This is the first tuning update in over three months since the title released.

According to the announcement, fan-favorite weapons like the Krig 6 and Mac-10, or the League’s preference, Ak74-u, will be affected by this tuning. The update will concern over ten weapons in total. This could very well be a game-changing update, as the meta weapons will go through the adjustments. With the League underway, this might mean the pros will need to adapt or learn new weapons to rumble within the competitive arena. Below is a list of all the weapons that will receive adjustments in the upcoming update.

Treyarch has covered all three major genres of weapons: SMGs, ARs and LMGs, in this upcoming update. While the studio has not announced the specific adjustments of every weapon yet, it gave a tiny peek in its update preview.

“A complete recoil balance pass on assault rifles and SMG attachments will also be included, as well as a buff to launcher damage against enemies with Flak Jacket in Hardcore.”

We expect the recoil will mostly affect the SMGs in Black Ops Cold War. Ak74-u and the Mac-10 are two especially powerful weapons for up-close multiplayer gameplay. Most assault rifles fail to compete with these two SMGs because of their versatile nature. Interestingly, the Magnum pistol is also getting an adjustment. However, we have to wait till Monday, March 29, to know the specifics.
