Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Season 2 Reloaded Adding New ZRG 20mm Sniper
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has some strong sniper rifles, with the LW3 Tundra dominating in online multiplayer. Starting tomorrow, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War fans will be seeing a new sniper rifle in their online matches.
The ZRG 20mm may be joining the LW3 Tundra at the top of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War weapon tier lists, as the description Treyarch gives for the weapon makes it sound like an even better gun in specific situations. In the case of the ZRG 20mm, range is the name of the game, with Treyarch highlighting how it excels in this area via a Call of Duty Blog post. With several large-scale modes available, this should be a major benefit.

Not only should the sniper perform well in Outbreak mode and Call of Duty: Warzone, but it should succeed in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s new Fireteam map Golova as well. With multi-team Hardpoint making its first appearance in Golova, snipers should have no shortage of enemy players to gun down. Racking up these kills should prove easy enough for skilled sniper users, too, as the ZRG 20mm is a guaranteed one-shot kill to the head, chest, and shoulders.
According to Treyarch, the weapon also boasts best-in-class bullet velocity, ensuring that shots hit their targets fast. The weapon also has a very fast reload speed, meaning that the likely downsides of the ZRG 20mm are a slow rate of fire and poor handling speeds. As such, the new Sniper Rifle will likely be a high-skill weapon like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s Crossbow — proving incredibly deadly in the right hands but useless in others.
For those looking to get their hands on the weapon, there will be a special weapon challenge to complete like other midseason weapons in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. No details have been specified on this challenge, however, meaning that players will need to check the task in-game tomorrow. If it resembles other challenges, it will require that players get a certain amount of kills or medals in numerous games. For players that want the weapon immediately, it can be instantly unlocked via the “Jackpot Sniper” bundle inside the shop, as players will get a fancy white and red blueprint for the gun.
With Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s midseason update also adding new Zombies Onslaught content and bringing back Prop Hunt, there seems to be plenty to do in Season 2 Reloaded. With Season 3 less than a month away, though, players will be seeing even more additions made soon.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.

10 Pro Tips For Monster Hunter Rise You Need To Know | Game Rant
Monster Hunter Rise is the sixth and the latest installment of the revered Monster Hunter series. Fans of the franchise who own a Nintendo Switch will absolutely find this title delightful. Not only does this game offer the incredible RPG elements and interactivity this franchise is known for, but now they have the chance to play the game on the go.
Like all Monster Hunter games, though, moving around this game’s world is not a simple walk in the park. The profusion of monsters in this game will drive the unknowing crazy. Knowing a couple of helpful tips will make their experience in this game so much more fun.
10 A Weapon For Each Play Style
This may go without saying, but those who are newcomers to the franchise stick to the play styles they’re used to in other RPG titles if they want to dive into this title. If they’re used to fast weapons, they should stick with fast weapons in this game. At least, at the beginning.
For example, if you’re a dexterity or agility type of player, then wield the Dual Blades. This weapon is very fast, which should be right up your alley. On the other hand, if you’re used to heavy weapons, then choose the Great Sword.
9 Meals Are Important
Hunting monsters is not a very easy job. In order for a monster hunter to do this job well, they need to make sure they’re at least full when working. In Monster Hunter Rise, eating is not just a leisure activity. It will give the player the boost they need to combat the monsters in the game.
It is a very great tip to consume the Japanese dumpling snack dango before the player goes off to hunt. Doing this will give them bonus health and stamina.
8 Play The Single Player First
While a Monster Hunter game is absolutely known for its multiplayer gameplay, that doesn’t mean a player can’t enjoy it solo. In fact, if they want to get better at this game, they should start out playing the single-player part first.
In Monster Hunter Rise, the single-player and multiplayer campaigns are separated. Before they dive into the multiplayer world, they should start out with the single-player quests via the village quests. Not only will this make them familiar with the game’s mechanics and allow them to enjoy the story, but it will also allow them to build their skills.
7 Play With A Friend First For Multiplayer
Playing multiplayer games is always an amazing experience. The players can either play with their friends or meet strangers online who share their love for a certain game. The Monster Hunter franchise is well-known and beloved for this fact.
Once the players get through the single-player campaign of this game, they should plan things accordingly with friends who are also playing the game. Playing this game with friends will make the experience of playing this game so much better. On top of that, it will also help them defeat the myriad of strenuous monsters around the game’s world.
6 Monsters Scale According To The Number Of Players Present
This is a fact veterans of the franchise and of other similar games are already familiar with, but this is something newcomers should always keep in mind. While it is more fun and accessible to combat monsters in this game with many players, they should also note that a boss will become more powerful the more players are fighting against it.
With this in mind, don’t be surprised that a monster is suddenly more resilient to attacks when there are more players in the arena. Instead, they should use this opportunity to utilize teamwork and analyze the monster closely.
5 Read The Armor Skills
“The best defense is a good offense” is a very popular adage. As cliche as it is at this point, this is a vital tip a player should keep in mind if they want to master Monster Hunter Rise. In this game, there are things called Armor Skills. These are the buffs and abilities that come with each armor piece and the player should always take the time to read these.
These are always helpful, especially when dealing with enemies that have a specific damage type. Some armor pieces offer resistance against a specific damage type and the player can always mix and match in preparation.
4 Armor Effects Can Stack Up
Although wearing a complete armor set can grant bonuses, a player doesn’t necessarily have to go this route. In Monster Hunter Rise, this has its benefits as well. By mixing and matching, the player can stack up certain effects by finding pieces that have the same armor skills.
In this game, an effect can stack up to three times. Meaning, if they wear three different armor pieces that offer a +10% attack each, the player will land a total of +30% attack by stacking.
3 The Wirebug
This is a tip that’s useful for both veterans and newcomers, for the fact that this is a completely new mechanic in this franchise. The wirebug diversifies a player’s traversal system. It will allow them to reach greater heights and move around quicker.
More than anything, the player should take the time to master this gameplay mechanic. Not only does this make exploration more immersive and quick, but it will also help greatly in combat.
2 Never Disregard The Optional Quests
This is basically an unspoken commandment when it comes to RPG and open-world games at this point, but a player should never disregard the optional quests. In a game like Monster Hunter Rise, this tip is even more essential.
The optional quests in this game will grant the player incredible rewards such as armor spheres. Other than this fact, it will also allow them to hone their skills and really explore everything this game has to offer to its players.
1 A Blacksmith Is A Hunter’s Best Friend
The player will constantly need to watch out for their gear in this game. Oftentimes, they will become unaware that the gears they have are becoming too obsolete in respect to where they are in the game. The game won’t communicate this to the player outright. They will simply know because enemies will become close to impossible to manage.
For this, they should constantly check back with the blacksmith. In fact, it is good practice to always return to the blacksmith after every hunt.
