With more Season 1 content being planned and less than a week to run on the Rebirth Island event in COD Warzone, a big patch could be heading our way in January.

There have also been rumours of a new Battle Royale map being planned, with additional weapons and tuning promised for Cold War.

But this week, we only know about a few changes being prepped for the Call of Duty franchise’s latest instalment.

According to Treyarch, a new Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War update is being released later today.

This is likely to arrive at around 6pm GMT in the UK and may not require much more than a server update.

The good news is that it will come with a Black Ops Cold War playlist refresh, which will change what modes and maps are available.

The only confirmed change is the launch of a fresh Sniper Mode to take on in small teams.

And this could mean that this week’s Call of Duty update will not provide much in the way of new content for COD Warzone.

A message from Treyarch confirms: “Incoming tomorrow in Black Ops Cold War: 3v3 Gunfight Snipers Only! Grab some friends and get ready to dominate.”

So fans may have to wait until January 2021 before they get another injection of new content for Cold War Season 1.

Any other changes made to Cold War or Warzone will be announced by Treyarch after the new update has been released.

Since the start of Season 1, the Warzone meta has been all over the place, and there have been plenty of reports on what are the new over-powered weapons.

The most popular new gun in Warzone is the Mac 10, which appears to have cemented its place among the top tier.

That doesn’t mean that Shotguns have been demoted out of the system, but the deluge in new weapon choices has certainly changed things.

The good news is that the Mac 10 is relatively easy to unlock, meaning it’s hard to be left behind even if you don’t own Black Ops Cold War.

The Mac 10 unlocks when you reach Tier 15 in the Black Ops Cold War Season 1 Battle Pass.

It’s a free tier, meaning everyone gets access to it, regardless if you own all the add-ons on PS4, Xbox One, PC or next-gen consoles.

Unlocking all the different bits and bobs to make the perfect Mac 10 loadout takes longer, and is probably a little easier to achieve if you own Black Ops Cold War.

But with the Mac 10 appearing as ground loot across Verdansk and Rebirth Island, it should take too long to get a working Mac 10 loadout.

Treyarch has not revealed what guns might be facing the next round of nerfs, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see a few current favourites make the list next month.

Fans can expect more news on any big changes being made to the game in the weeks to come.
