Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War patch increases weapon XP rates

Treyarch has released a new patch for Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War and this addresses the earn rate for weapons XP. Treyarch has confirmed this will be available in multiplayer and zombies. There has also been a fix applied to Nuketown ’84 to close off an exploit where players could leave the bounds of the map. Those who use the Napalm Burst Ammo Mod should also now see consistency with the amount of XP awarded using it.




  • Increased Weapon XP earn rates for both Multiplayer and Zombies.



  • Addressed an issue that was causing lower-than-targeted Weapon XP in solo matches and in later rounds.
  • Addressed an issue where the Napalm Burst Ammo Mod wasn’t consistently awarding Weapon XP when equipped.



  • Nuketown ‘84
    • Closed an out-of-bounds gap that allowed players to stay alive outside of the playable space.

In our review for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Nick wrote:

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is a decent entry in the series, but it feels like it doesn’t quite know what it wants to be. The campaign is full of underused ideas, while the multiplayer misses some of the magical charm of Modern Warfare, opting for faster paced aggressive battles which just don’t feel as satisfying. While still enjoyable, Black Ops Cold War fails to recapture the magic of Black Ops 1 and 2.
