Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is one of the most anticipated games of this year. Treyarch is doing everything in its power to build as much hype as possible, and they’re doing a pretty good job at it. Since the game was first announced, players were wondering whether they will see their favorite weapons in it or not. And today, we are going to talk about all confirmed Assault Rifles and SMGs that we’ll see in the game.
Black Ops Cold War Confirmed Assault Rifles and SMGs
Assault Rifles have always been the favorite weapon type of most players. This is because ARs tend to be perfect for both closed and medium ranged combat. In addition to this, the kind of fire rate and accuracy they offer is better than every other weapon type. As for SMGs, they have always been brutal in close-ranged situations. Recently, Treyarch gave us a closer look at Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War through the multiplayer reveal. We got to see the upcoming maps, modes, and much more thanks to it. However, what left every player excited were the weapons that they’ll get to use in November.
While the multiplayer reveal showcased different types of weapons, we’ll be talking about Assault Rifles and SMGs only. So without any further due, let’s take a look at what we’re getting.
To begin with, the XM4 is making a return in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. For those who don’t know, this weapon was first introduced in Black Ops with the name “Commando.” It was easily one of the best Assault Rifles in Black Ops, and it surely won’t disappoint players in the upcoming game. It offers a clip size of 30 bullets and has a good rate of fire.
Next up, we have the AK-47. This weapon is considered as the most popular weapon because it is present in almost every Call of Duty game. It isn’t a surprise that it will be available in Black Ops Cold War as the game would be incomplete without it. Just like the above-mentioned weapon, the AK-47 comes packed with a 30-rounds magazine that can help you with crushing your opponents in both close and mid-range combats.
The third and final Assault Rifle to get revealed for Black Ops Cold War is the Krig 6. This weapon is deadlier than the other two mentioned in this list because its TTK is fast. In addition to this, it will only take you a few bullets to empty your enemy’s health bar. While you might have to spend some time practicing with this weapon to properly control it, no one will be able to stop you once you master it.
The MP5 is yet another popular SMG that is present in most of the Call of Duty titles. It is a widely used weapon in the Modern Warfare series and has a special place in Call of Duty’s battle royale, Warzone. With a clip size of 30 bullets and a good rate of fire, the MP5 will help you bag in a lot of kills once Black Ops Cold War arrives.
The second SMG that was seen in the multiplayer reveal is the AK-74u, which looks like a smaller version of the AK-47. This weapon is really amazing considering it offers a high rate of fire and amazing accuracy. In fact, many players consider it to be better than most of the other SMGs. With that being said, I’m personally waiting to see how this weapon will perform in the upcoming Call of Duty game.
Finally, we have the Type 821 SMG. This weapon is pretty similar to Uzi, which was seen in the original Black Ops. Considering it offers almost the same stats, the Type 821 can help you drop your enemies quickly in close-ranged combat.
These were all the Assault Rifles and SMGs confirmed for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Keep in mind that these weapons are from the Alpha build of the game, and Treyarch will most likely add more weapons as we get close to the final version. Once that happens, we’ll make sure to update our list.
