Cold War April 7 Patch Notes

Warzone and Cold War players are up for a surprise, as the April 7 patch notes by Treyarch brings in new weapons, gameplay fixes and additional content

The April 7 patch notes for Black Ops Cold War have arrived and it comes with several stability enhancements, weapon additions and multiple fixes across gameplay.

ZRG 20mm rifle comes to Cold War

The new April 7 patch notes have introduced the heavy-duty ZRG 20mm sniper rifle to both Cold War and Warzone. It now becomes the sixth new weapon in Call of Duty Season Two. This powerful assault rifle fires massive 20mm rounds.

According to Treyarch, this weapon packs “more punch per shot than any other weapon in the Cold War sniper rifle class”.

In order to grab this killer rifle, players need to participate in an in-game challenge or the ‘Jackpot Sniper’ bundle. Alternatively, they can join this week’s Snipers Only Moshpit and gain access to the ZRG 20mm sniper rifle.

Zombies have kept Cold War players busy for quite a while and the April 7 patch notes brings new surprises for gamers. Treyarch has added new Zombies stability improvements in the Outbreak map.

The Dead ops Arcade 3 and Onslaught get new gameplay updates, while Miami Strike receives an out-of-bounds fix. The damage potential of the RC-XD gets a boost, along with a few additional fixes across the board.

That’s not all, the new patch notes have addressed issues with progress tracking for the “Science” weapon camo challenges for Launchers. Also, the R1 Shadowhunter’s “Classic” weapon camo challenges have also been addressed.

The developers are currently tracking an issue with the R1 Shadowhunter. Many players have reported that this weapon appears locked after they reach 15/15 on their in-game challenge progress.
