A new Call of Duty Cold War update has been released today that makes some interesting playlist changes and background tweaks to Black Ops Zombies.
Now available to download across PS4, Xbox One, PC and next-gen consoles, this week’s COD patch has brought back a refreshed Gunfight Tournament Mode.
The latest event brings new rewards to those who can finish the winners in the randomised Tournament structure, which will be available to compete in until May 6.
Other playlist changes include a new 6v6 Diesel 24/7 option, which is expected to stick around until early May 2021 across all platforms.
A new message from developers Treyarch explains more, adding: Today’s update brings a new week of Gunfight Tournaments with more exclusive rewards to earn by winning your way through the bracket!
“Register with your duo partner today and show off your skills, today through May 6th. If you didn’t unlock the rewards from winning our previous Gunfight Tournament, no worries – you’re still able to catch up and win them and this week’s rewards by winning your way through the bracket twice. Gunfight Tournament prizes are queued so players will never miss out on a reward!
“The new 6v6 Diesel 24/7 playlist is also live this week, offering a Moshpit of 6v6 TDM, Domination, Kill Confirmed, and Hardpoint on one of Season Three’s new maps! Jump into core matches from the Featured Playlist menu, or jump into Hardcore Diesel 24/7 in Quick Play. Sticks and Stones also continues this week, and Face-Off returns to Core and Hardcore with 3v3 action on Diesel as well.
“We’ve also added Ping information while searching for a match, as well as new fixes for Multiplayer Challenges, stability improvements in Outbreak and “Firebase Z” in Zombies, and an update for the Swiss K31’s aim assist in Zombies.”
