How To Change Your Reticle In Black Ops Cold War

Not every reticle is for you, but there may be one or two that really compliments your aim.

Or, perhaps, you just enjoy sporting something a bit different like 'The Steve' - a big moustache reticle.

Players can change their reticle on their sights to ensure they get the most out of their class.

This isn't just subject to your LED sights, this extends to your scopes too!

But how do you change them?

Here's how to change your reticle in Black Ops Cold War.

How To Change Your Reticle In Black Ops Cold War

Before you change your reticle, you'll need to have unlocked a new one!

This is incredibly straight forward, you just have to complete some challenges by aiming down that particular sight.

In total, there are 11 default reticles (10 to unlock) for each sight and are unlocked at the following milestones:

  • 50 kills while aiming down the sights with the [insert sight name] in multiplayer
  • 100 kills while aiming down the sights with the [insert sight name] in multiplayer
  • 150 kills while aiming down the sights with the [insert sight name] in multiplayer
  • 200 kills while aiming down the sights with the [insert sight name] in multiplayer
  • 250 kills while aiming down the sights with the [insert sight name] in multiplayer
  • 300 kills while aiming down the sights with the [insert sight name] in multiplayer
  • 350 kills while aiming down the sights with the [insert sight name] in multiplayer
  • 400 kills while aiming down the sights with the [insert sight name] in multiplayer
  • 450 kills while aiming down the sights with the [insert sight name] in multiplayer
  • 500 kills while aiming down the sights with the [insert sight name] in multiplayer

These challenges do stack, so each milestone is unlocked at 50 kill increments.

These unlocks are not universal, you will need to unlock these reticles on each sight.

Once you've unlocked a new reticle, you'll be able to select in the Gunsmith for that weapon.

Scroll down to the 'Reticles' section and select your preferred reticle.
