Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War guns: every confirmed and rumoured weapon

We've trawled through the footage to dig out as many details as possible

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War guns

Curious about all of the Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War guns you’ll get to play with when launch rolls around on November 13, 2020? Select press and online media were invited to a gameplay reveal of the new Call of Duty, and between their findings and our painstaking analysis of the very first snippets of gameplay we’ve managed to find a huge number of weapons that will be present – in some form – in Black Ops Cold War.

The number of guns currently being shown off in the is likely a lot smaller than the total number of weapons that will be in the game. The weapons are also getting more attachments in the gunsmith than ever before, with a minimum of six attachments per attachment point on any primary gun.

We’re still unsure of how Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War will interact with the now persistent battle royale mode, but these could even feature among the best Warzone guns later down the line.

Assault rifles


This is the Colt Commando we always see Frank Woods toting in Black Ops, and it looks like the ‘ticks all boxes’ M4A1 stand-in for the Cold War era. It can have optic, muzzle, barrel, underbarrel, body, stock, magazine, and handle attachments.

Krig 6

The Krig 6 is all about accuracy when firing full-auto. It deals less damage than the other two assault rifles, but you’ll find landing consecutive hits easier.


The AK-47 is the hardest hitting assault rifle of the lot but suffers when it comes to accuracy and mobility.

Submachine guns


Decent damage, very high rate of fire, and solid handling stats to boost – it looks like the MP5 meta is here to stay.

Type 821

High damage, but a much slower rate of fire. Much like the Uzi in Modern Warfare, you can expect a lot more recoil from this SMG, too.


Really solid damage and slightly easier to handle than the Uzi, but not quite as quick at shredding enemies as the MP5.

Tactical Rifles


This comes with burst-fire as standard, hence its placement in the Tactical Rifles category. Land one of those three-round bursts and the enemy will be lucky if they’re still standing.

Type 63

A slow-firing rifle similar to the SKS, the Type 63 is already looking like one of the best guns in the game thanks to its high damage per shot and decent rate of fire.

Light Machine Guns


The RPD is designed for full-auto fire, where its recoil actually improves the longer you hold the trigger down. It’s damage is impressive and it has a great rate of fire.

Stoner 63

Similar stats to the RPD, but with slightly higher fire rate and lower damage.

Sniper rifles

LW3 – Tundra

Deals more damage than the Pellington 703, but has more sway and worse handling stats. You can get a one-shot kill to the head, upper torso, and shoulders.

Pellington 703

This is the quick-scope rifle. It’s hand-fed and has strong handling stats. The Pellington 703 delivers a one-shot kill to the head or upper torso.



Bog-standard pistol. Decent damage, decent rate of fire.


The Cold War equivalent of the Renetti, this is a burst-fire pistol and a great secondary for snipers.


Hauer 77

Basically a trench gun, this is a pump-action shottie capable of dealing massive damage up close.

Gallo SA12

Semi-auto shotgun that can be spammed in a panic.


Cigma 2

This launcher can be fired freely or you can lock onto enemy aircraft with it.

And there you have it, every weapon that’s either confirmed or sighted in the Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War trailer and multiplayer showcase.
