Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is available now across five platforms.
The latest chapter of the Black Ops series has seen players jump straight into the multiplayer action, with new maps, game modes, and new weaponry to master.
One of the game modes that has returned on Black Ops Cold War is Search and Destroy (S&D).
Teams take turns in attacking and defending two bombsites located on the map. The attacking team has to plant and detonate the bomb, while the defending team has to stop them or defuse it. The first team to win six rounds is the winner.
Search and Destroy has been in Call of Duty since the very first instalment of the franchise. Fans have come to love the tactical gameplay that the mode offers, along with the potential to score some crazy clutches.
In this guide, find the perfect loadout for S&D along with some handy tips and tricks to defeat the oppositon.
The Best Search And Destroy Class
This compact sub-machine gun is more than capable of making an impact on a match of S&D. Its rapid rate of fire makes it deadly in close quarters situations while its low recoil levels makes it possible to contend with assault rifles at longer distances.
Here are our recommended attachments for the AK-74u:
- Muzzle Brake 5.56 (Muzzle)
- 9.3” Extended (Barrel)
- Foregrip (Underbarrel)
- Tactical Stock (Stock)
- Quickdraw Handle (Handle)
The combination of muzzle brake and foregrip further reduces recoil to minimal levels, making this SMG extremely easy to control, even in hectic close-quarters battles around the bombsite.
The stock increases your strafe speed which is perfect for navigating the map while aiming down sights while the quickdraw handle drastically increases your aim down sight speed, allowing you to react as quickly as possible to an opponent attempting to make a play.
Search And Destroy Tips And Tricks
Communication Is Key
In Search and Destroy, knowledge is power. By communicating with your teammates using a microphone or the ping feature, you can suggest what is the best course of action during a round or even tell another player where an opponent is located.
The best S&D teams are often the ones that communicate well and adapt to the information that they have received.
Rushing in S&D can often result in you being caught out by an enemy in a better position or an opponent that has simply waited a bit longer in order to secure the kill.
Rather than trying to beat an enemy to a particular location, pre-aim where you think they will be appearing from and take them out before they can dart back into cover and regroup.
