The mid-season update is jam packed.

10:53, 30 Mar 2021

Black Ops Cold War is ramping up the content as we approach the halfway stage of the titles time as the leading Call of Duty game. After introducing us to some exhilarating Operators alongside the hauntingly brilliant map Apocalypse, the mid-season update will continue in the same fashion, finally adding Wolf and Rivas. 

Black Ops Cold War Season 2 Reloaded: New Operators

First showcased in the Season 2 trailer, Wolf has a thing for brute force. Wielding a Death Machine in the cinematic, it's clear that this operator will be a fan favourite for both players who like to tame a beast or even those who enjoy someone easy on the eye.

Rivas appears to have channelled her inner Tomb Raider, showing off her jungle-themed attire marked by war paint and a tight-knit headband. The operator will come flexing her badass attitude, reigning hell over her male counterparts.

Black Ops Cold War Season 2 Reloaded: New Maps

Alongside the new operators, more new maps are on the way.

Maimi Strike will come into play as a sun-filled slither of the humongous map that we already have. Centralised around the garage section to the VIP Clubs and a thin stretch of the mid-lane, Miami Strike will add new life to a stale map.

Mansion will also come in, which appears to be very similar to the Black Ops 4 map Hacienda. With a statue in the nucleus of the map, the axis will run up and downstairs of a mansion, making it paramount to be watching both angles.


A new area will also be added to Outbreak, as well as Golova also becoming a 40-man multiplayer map. As dawn breaks on Miami, darkness has transcended into the Aether. The massive new nighttime Sanatorium region has been added to Outbreak, alongside a Dirt Bike vehicle and many more in-game objectives.

Black Ops Cold War Season 2 Reloaded: Weapon Balances

The gun meta is met with a massive change. The Submachine Gun pool has been rattled and ripped apart, with nerfs coming in to reduce the power of the AK74u, KSP 45, and most significantly the Season 2 DLC dynamite, the LC10. Meanwhile, the Milano 821 has been buffed, making the new meta revolve around the makeshift Uzi.


As SMGs perish, Assault Rifles have arisen. The Krig 6, FFAR, and Groza have all been buffed, making them a force to be reckoned with on multiplayer.



The Black Ops Cold War Season 2 Reloaded update is now live and will be one of two updates coming in close proximity. A Warzone weapon balance is also pending, as Raven Software also look to shake the bag a little bit.
