The new season is expected to launch towards the end of April with a wealth of brand-new content including a new Zombies map and the impending demise of Warzone’s Verdansk map.
As always, a new season means the addition of brand-new weapons to the ever-expanding arsenal.
Which weapons are coming in Season 3? We’ve got you covered.
Black Ops Cold War Season 3 Weapons
According to notable Call of Duty leaker TheGamingRevolution, a total of four weapons have been found within the files of Black Ops Cold War.
Here’s a list of all the weapons found:
- Skorpion (SMG)
- CZ-75 (Pistol)
- FAL (Assault Rifle)
- Dragunov (Sniper Rifle)
All four of these weapons have appeared in previous Black Ops titles, but none of them ever dominated the metagame on a regular basis.
The addition of new weapons almost always sparks some form of change within the Black Ops Cold War metagame. The FAL was one of the strongest assault rifles in Black Ops 2, could it reclaim its place as the best AR in Black Ops Cold War?
Datamining and Leaks
Recent leaks from @ZestyCODLeaks on twitter may show us some of the weapons coming in season 3!
3 file names called 'ar_t9fastburst', 'me_t9ballisticknife' and 'sm_t9spray' have been found so far.
It's still unclear as to what 2 of these are, but it seems we'll be getting a ballistic knife with the next season update.
This is unofficial, so we'll have to wait for more news from Activision regarding the actually weapons coming with season 3.
Black Ops Cold War Season 3 Release Date
Although no official release date for the start of Season 3 has been revealed, the end of the Season 2 Battle Pass comes to an end on April 21st, which implies the new season will start then.
As usual, two weapons will make an appearance at the beginning of the season as a part of the new Battle Pass while the other two will be added during the mid-season update.
