Call of Duty: Best setups to use in Cold War Black Ops Multiplayer

Call of Duty: Best setups to use in Cold War Black Ops Multiplayer

Black Ops Cold War has now been out for long enough for players to experiment with all the weapons and design some optimal loadouts. When you’re putting together the best Cold War loadout, consider scorestreaks, perks, and weapon attachments. There have already been some nerfs in the first post-launch update, so the meta is rapidly evolving. Here are some of the best setups to use in Cold War to use before the launch of Season 1.

A few weapons stand out above the rest in Black Ops Cold War, and we’ll focus on those options. There are two tactical rifles, a submachine gun, and a sniper rifle on our list. No matter your playstyle, you’ll find something useful to try out below. 

Best setups to use in Cold War Black Ops Multiplayer

Here’s are the best setups to use in Cold War Black Ops Multiplayer. 

  • AUG
  • M16
  • MP5
  • Pelington 703

AUG

Here are the best attachments for the AUG in Black Ops Cold War:

  • Optics: Personal Preference
  • Barrel: 19.8″ Task Force
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Foregrip
  • Handle: Speed Tape
  • Stock: CQB Pad

The AUG is the third tactical rifle you’ll unlock in Black Ops Cold War. Don’t let the burst-fire make you think otherwise because this weapon is a beast. Burst-fire weapons are typically some of the worst in previous CoD titles, but Cold War is their time to shine. You can down most players in one or two burst shots with the AUG, especially using the attachments above. The AUG may quickly become your favorite mid-range weapon of choice.

M16

Here are the best attachments for the M16 in Black Ops Cold War:

  • Optics: Personal Preference
  • Barrel: 20.5″ Task Force
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Foregrip
  • Magazine: 45 Rnd Speed Mag
  • Stock: Raider Pad

Similar to the AUG, the M16 is another burst-fire tactical rifle. It’s more geared towards long-range engagements over the AUG, though. You can quickly drop any enemy in a single burst if your shots are on target. It’s a good option for holding down some capture points and suppressing enemies in choke points. If you’re looking to make your level grind go a bit faster, consider checking out the M16.

MP5

Here are the best attachments for the MP5 in Black Ops Cold War:

  • Muzzle: Infantry Compensator
  • Barrel: 9.5″ Task Force
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Magazine: Salvo 50 Rnd Fast Mag
  • Stock: No Stock

Next up, we have the infamous MP5, which has been wreaking havoc in Cold War Multiplayer. While it has already been nerfed in a post-launch patch, it’s still the best submachine gun in the game. Not only is this weapon insanely powerful at close range, but it is a mid-range contender as well. Use the attachments above to optimize damage output and mobility. The MP5 setup is probably the most versatile in Black Ops Cold War, which sounds odd for a submachine gun.

Pelington 703

Here are the best attachments to use on the Pelington 703 in Black Ops Cold War:

  • Barrel: 26.5″ Tiger Beam
  • Body: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Underbarrel: Infiltrator Grip
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: Raider Pad

Finally, we have the best sniper rifle in the game: the Pelington 703. Our setup above is designed to optimize damage, flinch, reveal distance, and some overall mobility. If you like to play aggressively with your snipers to maximize your XP per minute, consider this Pelington 703 loadout.

These are the best setups to run before the launch of Season 1 in Black Ops Cold War. The meta will likely change with the release of Season 1, so we will keep this up-to-date when the new content arrives.
