Unfortunately for some Black Ops Cold War players, the M16 and AUG tactical rifles are reportedly set to receive some major changes.
In a tweet, Call of Duty insider Tom Henderson advised players to level up the M16 and AUG as much as possible because both weapons will be massively nerfed in the near future.
Black Ops Cold War has already made several major changes to its weapon balancing so far from the MP5 to the FFAR. So, it’ll be interesting to see how Treyarch changes the M16 and AUG. Will they continue to be extremely viable weapons like the MP5? Or will they get heavily nerfed like the FFAR?
New Weapons In Black Ops Cold War Season 1
While players could be losing out on 2 fan-favorite weapons in the future, Black Ops Cold War Season 1 could introduce the next meta weapon(s).
According to these leaks, the Groza and MAC-11 are coming back to Call of Duty. In the official roadmap image, you’ll also notice that Adler is holding a Striker shotgun. All 3 of these weapons are rumored to be included in the game’s first season.
BOCW Season 1 will begin on December 10th. This is also when the game will officially integrate with Call of Duty: Warzone.
