The Season 3 release date for Call of Duty Cold War is slated for this week, with a lot of new content slated for launch.

And to keep up with the latest changes, gamers will need to download a few Call of Duty Cold War updates for both Black Ops and Warzone.

Activision has warned gamers that this week’s COD patches will arrive on different days.

But the good news is that Season 3 of the Cold War will start at the same time for everyone, no matter what game they are playing.

So even if you’re not playing Warzone and don’t need to download the next update, you’ll still be waiting just as long for the new content.

This week there will be a lot of attention for Warzone, as it will get a renewed Verdnask in addition to a special event.

But that doesn’t mean that Season 3 of the Cold War won’t have enough things to check out, with new maps, modes and cosmetic items coming to the game.


According to Activision, the Call of Duty Cold War update time is scheduled for Wednesday, April 21 at 5 a.m. BST.

For gamers in the United States, the new COD patch will be available for download on Tuesday at 9 p.m. PST.

While the Black Ops Cold War Season 3 update will be available for download on April 21, Season 3 itself won’t start until April 22.

A message from Activision explains, “The season three update will be available for Black Ops Cold War on April 20 at 9:00 pm PT and will be available for Warzone April 21 at 9:00 pm PT.

“For this update, there is a download size of approximately 8.1 – 13.1 GB for Black Ops Cold War and 25.2 – 25.9 GB for free-to-play Warzone owners who have the latest updates for both games.

“Keep in mind that the Warzone download is not necessary if you are only playing Black Ops Cold War, and vice versa.”

That’s a much smaller download size from previous patches, and there are plenty of new things to look forward to.

The first patch notes from the Cold War Season 3 update have been shared, and you can find the highlights below:

PPSh-41: SMG (launch week)

If you need to spit fire, grab the PPSh-41 SMG, an absolute classic in the series. While the damage per shot is moderate, its rapid-fire capabilities and high capacity encourage an aggressive playstyle, ideal for leading the attack in objective modes and clearing tight spaces in Warzone.

Swiss K31: Sniper Rifle (Launch Week)

Precision and power. The Swiss K31 Sniper Rifle was created for a neutral country ready to rearm for world war, but now resides in the arsenals of NATO and the Warsaw Pact. This bolt-action sniper rifle has exceptional accuracy, as well as a fast rechamber and aiming speeds with a large ammunition capacity. Aggressive snipers will be in their element with this new rifle, whether sniping in the wilderness of Warzone or pursuing targets in Black Ops Cold War.

Ballistic Knife: Melee (Launch Week)

A versatile weapon first introduced in the original Call of Duty: Black Ops, this iteration of the Ballistic Knife is a rare piece of spy technology developed by Soviet forces in the late 1970s.

CARV.2: Tactical Rifle (in season)

Blast your way through the competition with this burst-fire tactical rifle and join the ranks of the M16 with its high damage and high bullet speed. With moderate firepower with solid recoil control and a large ammunition pool, the CARV.2 cuts deepest when used for medium to long range combat.

AMP63: Pistol (in season)

The secondary category gets even deeper later in season three thanks to the AMP63 pistol. The fourth weapon in the Black Ops Cold War arsenal, this personal defense weapon is a cross between a self-loading pistol and a fully automatic SMG.

Baseball Bat: Melee (in season)

The weapon of war of a classic powerhouse and the latest addition from Black Ops Cold War for one-hit melee fans. Unlock the baseball bat in Season Three and get out there and crack some skulls in Multiplayer, Zombies and Warzone.

Yamantau (6v6, launch week)

Bury your enemies in an avalanche of firepower as you battle through the crumbled remains of the Soviet Observatory on Mount Yamantau. Fight through a huge downed satellite dish, snowy interiors and broken catwalks, and tie your enemies to ropes to take the plunge on the competition.

Diesel (6v6 / 2v2 / 3v3, launch week)

In the lonely desert, this piece of Americana erupts into a battlefield. Prepare for 6v6, as well as 2v2 and 3v3 in Gunfight on this fast and hectic map. Fight around the gas station and surrounding buildings in the middle of the badlands. Go deep fry.

Standoff (6v6, in season)

An icon for fans and professionals alike, this Black Ops II classic is coming to Black Ops Cold War in season three. Compete in 6v6 on this medium-sized map, which offers a timeless three-lane feel and plenty of options to outsmart your opponents. Watch those buildings and watch the van near the hay bales.

Duga (multiple teams, in season)

Take your team to the Ural Mountains in this expansive new Multi-Team environment. Duga offers something for every style of play, whether you prefer going through the central administration offices for close range combat, or making your way down the perimeter through the bus depot to the chemical processing plant for long range combat.
