Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Update Brings New Sniper, Buffs RC-XD, and More

CODBO-Sniper
ZRG 20MM Treyarch

 

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War April 7 update is now live on every platform. The update brought one new weapon to the game, improved performance, buffed RC-XD, and of course, fixed several bugs.

Check out the brand new sniper rifle, ZRG 20mm. This weapon fires massive 20-millimeter rounds and has the highest damage output of all snipers in the game. You can unlock the weapon by purchasing the Jackpot Sniper bundle from the store or via in-game challenges. 

From now on, the "Oni" Reticle will appear normal in the preview and not too dark. An out-of-bound exploit near the Parking Garage in the map Miami Strike is fixed. The buff on the RC-XD now lets it deal more damage to enemies with Flak Jacket equipped. Several other things were changed as well, including fixes to improve the stability of Outbreak mode. You can read more about them in detail below.
