Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Patch Notes Reveal Weapon XP Changes (November 30)

The newest patch for Black Ops Cold War has arrived, and it makes some notable changes to weapon XP.


The newest patch for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has arrived, and the big-ticket change is a tweak to how fast you'll earn weapon XP.

Across multiplayer and Zombies, Treyarch has increased the earn rates for weapon XP. With the update applied, players should now level up their weapons faster than before, allowing them to unlock new gear and attachments at a quicker pace.

The update also fixes an XP-related problem with the Zombies mode that caused the game to not pay out enough XP in solo matches and later in rounds.

As a thank you to players for their patience for these XP issues, Treyarch will offer "even more" double XP events throughout December, the studio said.

Finally, the new update fixes an out-of-bounds exploit for the newly released Nuketown '84 multiplayer map. You can see the full November 30 patch notes below, as posted by Treyarch on its website.

Black Ops Cold War November 30 Patch Notes:



  • Increased Weapon XP earn rates for both Multiplayer and Zombies.
