BOCW Update 1.20 Patch Notes for Season 4: Reloaded

BOCW Update 1.20 Patch Notes: Weapons

  • With the new OTs 9 submachine gun, we get back an old familiar weapon that many players may still know as the Scorpion. We have a deep-dive for you in a separate article. It can be unlocked via a challenge, or bought as a bundle.
  • The Mace can also be unlocked via a challenge or purchased as a bundle in the coming weeks.
  • Assault Rifle Customizations:
    • The Iron Sights of the XM4, QBZ-83, Krig 6 and FFAR 1 have been moved slightly further forward.

BOCW Update 1.20 Patch Notes: Multiplayer

  • With Rush comes a new 6v6 map that most players should already know from Black Ops 2. The paintball arena looks like a lot of close combat fun.
  • Finally, Capture the Flag is also coming to BOCW. Steal the flag of the enemy team and bring it to your base – you already know how this mode works.
  • Cranked Team Deathmatch and Cranked Kill Confirmed come as new game modes. As the name suggests, they each mix the familiar Cranked Mode with either TDM or Kill Confirmed.
  • The Nuke Scorestreak is finally back! After 30 kills without dying, you get a Nuke that, when used, kills all players on the map but does not end the match. It is available in all modes except for League Play, Multi-Team, Gunfight, and Party Games.
