Call of Duty: Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Update Adds New Gun

A new Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War update is live alongside patch notes, which reveal that a new weapon has been added to not just Black Ops Cold War, but Warzone as well. More specifically, with the new update, the CARV.2 Tactical Rifle has been added. As always, it can be purchased via the in-game store and via bundle, but it can also be unlocked via in-game challenges in both multiplayer and zombies.

"Packed with impressive firepower, solid recoil control, and a large ammo pool to pull from, this burst-fire tactical rifle can be deadly in both mid-range engagements and long-range combat," reads an official blurb about the gun.

Beyond this, the update doesn't do much of note. The patch notes reveal additions and changes to zombies and multiplayer, but nothing of extreme consequence.
