Although the title of the playlist does suggest some form of changes to how fast your weapon fires, the Rapid Fire playlist arriving to Black Ops Cold War is a selection of small maps that lend themselves to close-quarters and fast-paced action.

To get the upper hand over the opposition in the Rapid Fire playlist, selecting the right weapon to use can be critical.

Considering all of the maps are relatively small, a fast-firing SMG such as the AK-74u or the LC10 will be ideal for close-quarters combat.

In the event of wanting to use something different, the FARA 83 assault rifle is perfect for taking down opponents in mid-range duels thanks to its minimal recoil and deadly stopping power.
