Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is a first-person shooter developed by Treyarch and Raven Software and published by Activision. It is the sixth game in the Black Ops series and the seventeenth in the Call of Duty series. It is also a direct sequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops and possible prequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops II. The setting takes place primarily in 1981 with several flashbacks dating to 1968 during the Vietnam War. The player character is a new, customizable operative codenamed "Bell", who is part of a CIA task force, including Alex Mason, Frank Woods, and Jason Hudson, out to stop a Soviet agent codenamed "Perseus" (based on the real-life conspiracy) from carrying out a decades-long plan that could radically alter the balance of power of the Cold War.

The following weapons appear in the video game Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War:



Beretta 93R

The Beretta 93R appears under the name "Diamatti". It holds only 15 rounds, despite having a visibly extended magazine.

Colt M1911A1

The Colt M1911A1 is featured in the game. The "Wingman" skin from the "Air Sea Land Pack" for the Ultimate Edition is also an M1911A1, featuring a paint-job similar to that of the P-51 Mustang fighters during WWII.

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5K

A Heckler & Koch MP5K with a collapsible stock and a threaded barrel is available as the "MP5". It has an SP89-like perforated handguad instead of a vertical foregip by default. It uses an HK claw mount with an anachronistic rail when equipping optics.

Heckler & Koch MP5A3

The “9.9" Extended” barrel attachment turns it into a full-sized MP5A3 with an original slimline handguard.

Heckler & Koch MP5A2

The combination of the aforementioned barrel with the "Tactical Stock" turns the gun into an MP5A2. It can also be equipped with a "40 Rd Speed Mag", which is a slightly longer version of the early straight "waffle"-style magazine.

SOCIMI Type 821

The SOCIMI Type 821 appears in-game. The bolt appears on the left side instead of on top like the Uzi it was based on. It is anachronistic for some maps and levels in the game, as it was designed in 1983 and produced from 1984, while the 80s segments of Black Ops Cold War take place in 1981-1984; the original IMI Uzi upon which the Type 821 was based would've been a better choice.

Franchi SPAS-12

The Franchi SPAS-12 appears as the "Gallo SA12" (Gallo means Rooster or Cock in Italian). It is used in semi-automatic mode, and the stock is folded by default, but it can be modified with an unfolded stock, as well as a fixed one. In a very rare bit of realism, when reloading, the shotgun is held upside down in order to hold down the carrier latch button, thus allowing the user to load shells (as previously seen in Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered). However, the gun is never rechambered after an empty reload.

Ithaca 37

The Ithaca 37 appears in-game as the "Hauer 77", likely a reference to Rutger Hauer, the late star of the film Hobo with a Shotgun. A shortened version called the "Sucker Punch" is available as a skin via the "Air Sea Land" pack for the Ultimate Edition. In reverse of the above, this shotgun is always pumped after every single reload.

Ak 5

A stylized Ak 5 is featured in the game as the "Krig 6" (Krig means War in Swedish). In the trailers, Woods can be seen wielding an Ak 5 with an upper rail. It is technically anachronistic for the game as even though it was designed in 1982, it was first produced in 1986, while the 80s segments of Black Ops Cold War take place in 1981-1984; the FN FNC, the rifle that the Ak 5 was derived from, would've been a more appropriate choice. It also uses an anachronistic upper rail when equipping optics.

An AK-47 is one of the assault rifles in the game, and is wielded by Vietcong and East German forces in the reveal trailer. It is fitted with an AKM-style slant compensator and pistol grip. It uses a fictionalized Dragunov optics mount modified into a rail mount when equipping optics.

The AKS-74U is one of the weapons in Black Ops Cold War. In true Call of Duty tradition, it is incorrectly classified as a submachine gun and referred to as the "AK-74u".

The M16A2 appears under the "tactical rifles" class. It is simply referred to as the "M16" in the HUD, but actually has "M16.A2" markings on the magwell. It incorrectly holds 30 rounds in a 20-round magazine, and the pin for the auto sear on the lower receiver is absent, which in reality would prevent the rifle from firing in bursts. It uses an anachronistic carry handle rail when equipping optics.

Colt M16A2 - 5.56x45mm NATO


An XM16E1 is seen in the reveal trailer. It appears to be a 'faux' XM16E1, as seen in various movies where the guns are built from M16A1s.

Yet here a full fence lower is seen, indicating that this is not a true XM16E1.


The XM177E1, specifically the later model with a full fence lower, appears under the name "XM4". It is depicted with a flat-topped receiver, with an anachronistic rear sight which is a hybrid between the Troy Battle Sight and Midway Industries Flip Up Sight, and the flash hider has been altered to resemble an A1. It also appears to have been based on a civilian model, as it has semi-auto only selector markings (Fire/Safe). The weapon is wrapped in slings like the "Commando" from the first Black Ops, and has "This is my rifle" written on the ejection port's cover, a reference to the USMC's Rifleman's Creed.

The "Black Tide" blueprint is essentially the same carbine with the regular handguard replaced with a carbine length M203 grenade launcher heat shield. It appears to have a PT boat style camouflage.

Norinco Type 63

The Norinco Type 63 is available in the game, classified as a "tactical rifle". Despite being select-fire in reality, it is restricted to semi-automatic mode in-game, and the spike bayonet is unusable. It uses what appears to be an anachronistic M14 rifle style rail mount when equipping optics.

Norinco Type 63 - 7.62x39mm

Norinco QBZ-95-1

An anachronistic Norinco QBZ-95-1 rifle is briefly seen in the Gunsmith trailer, labeled the "Type 15", featuring several retro-styled cosmetic alterations. The Type 95's development began in 1989, but the first prototypes were only created in 1990. The in-game weapon bears some cosmetic resemblances to some of the Type 95's early prototypes, but is still clearly based on the QBZ-95-1, which began its development in 2004 and was adopted in 2010.

Norinco QBZ-95-1 - 5.8x42mm

Sniper Rifles

Accuracy International PM/AW Hybrid

The "LW3 - Tundra" is a hybrid of the AI Precision Marksman and the Arctic Warfare, along with some visual alterations. It has a Precision Marksman-style stock, and lacks a finger cutout in the magwell like this model, but has the safety of an Arctic Warfare (incorrectly set to the rear position, which would lock the bolt and the trigger), as well as an adjustable cheek pad and a flash hider like the latter. Curiously enough, it also uses Picatinny rails like the AW, but with a PM-like scope mount and backup rear sight used on it.

Accuracy International PM - 7.62x51mm NATO
Accuracy International AW - 7.62x51mm NATO

Remington 700PSS

The Remington 700PSS appears as the "Pelington 703". Like the M40 and R700 rifles in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, it is reloaded with individual rounds.

Machine Guns


The M60 is seen in the multiplayer reveal trailer. It is the original model as opposed to the M60E3 featured in the past games.

The RPD is featured in Black Ops Cold War. It has an incorrect disintegrating ammunition belt.

Stoner 63A

The Stoner 63A is available in the game. Its in-game configuration primarily matches the Commando configuration, feeding from the right and featuring a bottom cocking handle, though it has a long barrel generally associated with the LMG configuration.

Mounted Weapons

A DShK Heavy Machine Gun appears to be mounted gunboats, tanks and bunkers in multiplayer.

General Dynamics GAU-17/A

The General Dynamics GAU-17/A appears mounted on helicopters in the campaign reveal trailer, and as the "Chopper Gunner" scorestreak in the multiplayer reveal trailer.

General Electric M61 Vulcan

F-14A Tomcats, armed with M61 Vulcan cannons, are seen taking off from a Nimitz-class carrier in the reveal trailer. The carrier also sports Vulcan cannons in CIWS installations.

M114 155 mm howitzer

The "Artillery" scorestreak consists of a barrage from M114 155 mm howitzers.

Weapons Cache

A cache of various weapons is seen in the GeForce RTX gameplay reveal.

An M60 is visible at the bottom left. An AUG with its foregrip folded is just behind it.
Here, the Remington 700 can be seen, along with an unidentified revolver (possibly a Smith & Wesson Model 686); the revolver lacks its cylinder for whatever reason, and both AKs and the M16A2 seem to have rail mounts with nothing on them (though this does at least seem to confirm that the M16 will no longer lose its carry handle when mounting optics).
