March 18th Patch Notes For Black Ops Cold War

The March 18th patch notes for Black Ops Cold War are here!

In this update, Treyarch is adding both Stockpile and Knife Fight 3v3 to the featured playlists. Furthermore, the developer is making some changes to the E-Tool in multiplayer.

When the E-Tool first released, some players weren’t too happy about the weapon’s viability in multiplayer. Basically, the E-Tool was a two-hit kill and its swing speed seemed to be on-par with the combat knife. So, there wasn’t really any reason to use the E-Tool in multiplayer.

Treyarch is changing that by reducing melee swipe time and increasing movement speed while using the weapon. Oh, and the E-Tool is now a one-hit kill.
