There are only a few weeks left until the end of Black Ops Cold War season 1, which means season 2 is fast on the horizon. To ensure happy hunting, here are 5 things we will see in Treyarch’s latest CoD season.
You have to imagine that Treyarch has been working hard on season 2 of Black Ops Cold War from the moment season 1 fell. Dropping a boatload of content is not easy and requires a lot of work to after all.
Season 1 has offered cool weapons like MAC-10 & Streetsweeper, remakes of Raid & Express and new game modes like Dropkick. However, there is plenty of room for improvement, and here are five easy ways Treyarch can make Season 2 even better and more fun in the latest Call of Duty game.
5. Old and new maps in BOCW season 2
Needless to say, Black Ops Cold War probably could have had more maps at launch instead of spreading them periodically throughout the game’s release. Thanks to updates and new content, the game now has 12 different “6v6” maps that players can enjoy.
Now a leak claimed several weeks ago that there would be 8 more map updates. Since the post, Express has taken a train ride into the 1980s, and we could easily see more on the road as well. The Pines is a great, original map, and it would be nice to see a couple of new maps as well as a couple of remakes as well.
4. New, exciting game modes in BOCW season 2
One thing that Black Ops Cold War certainly does not lack is a real selection of game modes for gamers to indulge in. Between Standard, Hardcore and a host of other playlist options, there are so many options for players.
But some fan-favorite modes are still conspicuously absent, and there is always room for originality and ingenuity.
3. Better Spawns in BOCW Season 2
We can not think of a Call of Duty game in recent memory that has had such unusually placed spawns. Several maps such as Crossroads, Armada and Satellite all have obviously exposed spawning areas that leave players exposed to a litany with subsequent deaths.
We can forgive this kind of thing that occurs on a small map like Nuketown ’84, but it should not really happen on medium-to-large maps. Hopefully Treyarch has realized this and has reconsidered the game’s spawning system.
Minor errors and errors in BOCW season 2
We recognize that this is probably more difficult than it sounds, but fewer mistakes will provide a healthy experience.
Only in season 1 have we had Raid become Mario Kart’s Rainbow Road, a mistake that makes players invisible, and even a mistake that left players boneless. We do not ask for perfection, but perhaps fewer insects, and allow us to keep more of the limbs.
Improved scoring system in BOCW season 2
It’s no secret that the Black Ops Cold War scoring system is terribly unbalanced. No matter what mode you play, the game actively encourages players to focus on killing, killing and nothing but killing.
A player who ignores the goal of getting a 10 kill streak will benefit greatly from much more than someone who has spent the entire game catching flags in Dominance and locking Hardpoints. There is little incentive to concentrate on goals, and Treyarch absolutely needs to solve this.
These are five important things we think could make Black Ops Cold War one of the best Call of Duty games ever if they could all happen.
Some potential information about leaked weapons for season 2 has already been made public, and we will be sure to update you when Treyarch officially launches the new information.
