The 5 Best Classes To Use In Season 2 Of Black Ops Cold War

The start of Season Two for Black Ops Cold War is finally here after several cinematic trailers and teasers revealing what will arrive over the course of the season.

Season Two will feature plenty of new content, including new weapons, new multiplayer maps, new Operators, a brand-new Battle Pass, and so much more.

The update arriving on February 25th that contains some of the new content is likely to feature several bug fixes alongside a potential wave of weapon balancing that could influence the current metagame.

With that in mind, here are five loadouts that will have you dominating the opposition in Season Two!

1) AK-47

Black Ops Cold War Season 2 Best Weapons

Since the launch of Black Ops Cold War, the AK-47 has been one of the standout performers in the assault rifle category thanks to its immense damage output and its versatility in a multitude of in-game scenarios.

AK-47 Best Attachments

  • KGB Eliminator (Muzzle)
  • 18.2” VDV Reinforced (Barrel)
  • Spetsnaz Grip (Underbarrel)
  • VDV 50 RND Fast Mag (Magazine)
  • Gru Elastic Wrap (Handle)

This set of attachments brings recoil down to minimal levels, making the AK-47 incredibly easy to control even at longer distances.

2) Bullfrog

Black Ops Cold War Season 2 Best Class

Often overlooked by the AK-74u and the MP5, the Bullfrog is arguably one of the strongest sub-machine guns in the game.

Bullfrog Best Attachments

  • Muzzle Brake 9 (Muzzle)
  • 7.6 Rifled (Barrel)
  • Steady Aim Laser (Body)
  • Patrol Grip (Underbarrel)
  • Serpent Wrap (Handle)

With a large magazine equipped as standard, additional bullets aren’t necessary when it comes to using the Bullfrog.

With this set of attachments, the overall range of the Bullfrog is drastically increased, making the Bullfrog a viable option even in mid-range gunfights where assault rifles often have the upper hand over SMGs.

3) Stoner 63

Black Ops Cold War Season 2 Best Weapons

Another weapon that is criminally underrated is the Stoner 63 light machine gun. Armed with a deadly rate of fire and incredibly low levels of recoil, the Stoner is great to use in Combined Arms matches and even better in Outbreak.

Stoner 63 Best Attachments

  • Quickdot LED (Optic)
  • 16” Cut Down (Barrel)
  • Foregrip (Underbarrel)
  • Sprint Pad (Stock)
  • Raider Pad (Handle)

Aimed at providing an increase in mobility, this combination of attachments allows you to outplay the opposition with superior movement speed alongside decreasing reaction times, enabling you to snap onto a target as quickly as possible.

4) LW Tundra

Black Ops Cold War Season 2 Weapons

If sniping is more your thing, the LW3 Tundra is an outstanding choice - armed with extremely high damage statistics, it can be used for picking off opponents from a distance or to create havoc up close and personal with quick scopes.

LW3 Tundra Best Attachments

  • Stabilizer .308 (Muzzle)
  • 28.2” Tiger Team (Barrel) 
  • Front Grip (Underbarrel)
  • Speed Tape (Handle)
  • Marathon Pad (Stock)

These attachments will give you a multi-function sniper that will be great for fast frantic gameplay as well as more slow and methodical tactics.

5) M16

Black Ops Cold War Season 2 Best Loadouts

After it was nerfed soon after the launch of the game, the M16 has fallen out of fashion with players despite being one of the strongest weapons to use across all game modes.

Could Season Two mark its return to the metagame?

M16 Best Attachments

  • Millstop Reflex (Optic)
  • Muzzle Brake 5.56 (Muzzle)
  • 15.9” Strike Team (Barrel)
  • Front Grip (Underbarrel)
  • Speed Tape (Handle)

This set of attachments is ideal thanks to its sheer versatility. It’s effective when engaging with a target at longer distances and it’s also viable if you want to get in amongst the action.
