Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Update Adds New Modes and Zombies Fixes

Treyarch Studios released a new update for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on Thursday to change up a few of the game's featured playlists and modes among other adjustments. This means that some new features like a Gunfight Tournament were added while modes were rotated into the available playlists. A could of fixes were released for the Zombies mode, too, alongside the promise of a Double Weapon XP weekend that's starting soon.

Given that this is one of the weekly updates that Black Ops Cold War typically gets to change up its playlists, there's nothing too terribly exciting in the patch notes for the update. The most players have to look forward to unless they plan on excelling in the Gunfight Tournament or returning to some of their favorite modes is the prospect of twice the weapon experience to be earned throughout the weekend.

"Get ready to level up your entire arsenal all weekend long as Double Weapon XP Weekend begins in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone," Treyarch said about the Double Weapon XP weekend that's starting soon. "Jump in and get on the grind, starting at 10AM PT Friday, July 30th through August 2nd."

The patch notes for the rest of the update can be found below.
