This update brings two new rounds of weapon tuning to Black Ops Cold War: one for all modes, and one specific to Zombies. The first is a global tuning pass for all sniper rifles, assault rifles, LMGs, and pistols to help each weapon stand out on its own and play to its strengths. This includes adding a custom flinch effect to all snipers and individualizing ADS momentum for each sniper rifle. Read on below for developer commentary from the team on each of these updates.

The second round of weapon tuning raises the power of most of the Black Ops Cold War arsenal in Zombies to ensure each weapon is a viable choice in any situation. See below for details on the full list, and when in doubt… aim for the head.

See the Treyarch Website for a full list of weapon tuning details.
