Cold War August 17 update patch notes, 2XP and


Today’s quick update brings some new stability improvements to Double Agent, gameplay updates and stability fixes for Zombies, plus more details on some quality-of-life updates introduced in our previous update (see below). These include the reduction of the LT53 Kazimir’s Salvage cost in Zombies, the ability to disable Pack-a-Punch camo application, and Custom Mod support for Launchers, Special weapons, and Melee weapons.

We’ve corrected one change that slipped through the cracks with last week’s round of weapon tuning: reducing the Bullet Velocity penalty on the Agency Suppressor attachment on assault rifles from -30% to -15%. That’s fixed today.

There’s also a little something we added to “Mauer der Toten” last week that still hasn’t been discovered. Nothing crazy! Just a bit of fun. Let us know on Twitter when you think you’ve found it


Ready for another new weapon in Season Five? How about a badass shotgun-pistol hybrid that can set your enemies on fire?

Starting today, you can get your hands on the new Marshal secondary weapon via in-game challenge or Store Bundle. We’ve been having a blast with this beauty in development, and it’s especially savage when dual-wielded in Zombies. Have fun!

Here’s what’s new since our previous update:
