The linking of the Call of Duty series’ most recent releases – Modern Warfare, Warzone, and Black Ops Cold War – is imminent. With Warzone being the middleman, Activision is about to dump a new map and Black Ops Cold War’s arsenal of weapons into the free-to-play battle royale, as it integrates it into its new main series title.
For those who love terrorising Verdansk, but haven’t got hands on with Black Ops Cold War, there will be a lot of new weapons inbound, and potentially some changes to attachments, perks, and everything else you’ve likely used to with the current loadout system.
All weapons available in Black Ops Cold War – including the new weapons dropping with Season One – will become usable in Warzone. These have been dropped into the existing weapon pool alongside Modern Warfare's lineup, meaning you can mix and match. There's nothing stopping you making a loadout class with a Grau from Modern Warfare and a Gallo SA12 from Cold War, for example.
So let’s jump in to find out what we know so far, and which guns you can expect to find in Verdansk and Rebirth Island.
Warzone Black Ops Cold War weapons list
All of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s weapons are available in Warzone following the launch of Season One on December 16, 2020.
Season One adds a total of 34 new weapons into Warzone: the 29 weapons in Black Ops Cold War since launch, and five new weapons added as Season One content. Two of those new weapons, the MAC-10 and the Groza, are available straight away to earn through Season One’s Battle Pass and have entered the loot pool in Rebirth Island and Verdansk. Meanwhile the Streetsweeper shotgun, and Sledgehammer and Wakizashi melee weapons are obtainable via challenges or store bundles.
So long as you’ve reached the level or completed the challenge needed to unlock a weapon, you are free to use it in Warzone, alongside the Modern Warfare weapons you’ve unlocked previously.
Here is every Black Ops Cold War weapon added into Warzone:
- Krig 6
- FFAR 1
- Groza (Season One Battle Pass)
- KSP 45
- MAC-10 (Season One Battle Pass)
- Type 63
- DMR 14
- Stoner 63
- Pelington 703
- LW3 – Tundra
- Hauer 77
- Gallo SA12
- Streetsweeper (Season One challenges/ store)
- Cigma 2
- Sledgehammer (Season One challenge/ store)
- Wakizashi (Season One challenge/ store)
It is now possible to create loadouts in Warzone with guns from both games. This also means you can technically run two of the same weapon for the first time, as an Overkill class will allow you to use both the Modern Warfare and Cold War version of the MP5, for example.
Warzone Cold War weapon integration
While Activision provided us with an enormous breakdown of all the content coming in Season One, including which weapons would be added to Warzone, there was no explanation prior to the new season as to how this will be done.
However, now we’ve got hands on with Warzone since the update, all has become clear.
While all of Cold War’s weapons are now available, nothing else from the new game has been copied over to Warzone. The battle royale retains the consumables, perks, field upgrades, and scorestreaks introduced during the Modern Warfare era.
Another concern was the attachment system. However, Black Ops Cold War weapons are now available in Warzone with their attachments from Cold War. Some of the buffs and nerfs these attachments give your weapon, however, are slightly different form the main game to fall in line with Warzone’s existing attachments.
Also, Black Ops Cold War guns have entered the general loot pool for both Rebirth Island and Verdnask, with the likes of the XM4, Milano, and Pelington sniper rifle all being found as floor loot or dropping from loot crates.
