Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

Black Ops Cold War leaks suggest the return of this fan-favorite perk

The first batch of upcoming Black Ops: Cold War perks have been leaked, suggesting this fan-favorite perk could return.

Datamined images from the files of Black Ops Cold War reveal new perks that may be coming to the game.

In a post by dataminer TheGhostOfMW2, it appears that two perks are hidden away in the game’s code that may be coming to Black Ops Cold War in a future content update.

Most notably, it appears that the first perk (pictured to the left) is Lightweight, a returning perk from several Call of Duty titles.

Some may think at first glance the perk is Marathon (which gave players unlimited sprint), but since Black Ops Cold War comes with built-in unlimited sprint, this perk would be useless in the game.

A common complaint for Black Ops Cold War is the sprint speed, so having lightweight would be a welcome addition to the perk 3 category. If true, the perk 3 category would consist of the following perks:

  • Cold Blooded
  • Ninja
  • Gung-ho
  • Spycraft
  • Ghost
  • Marathon

As for the perk pictured on the right, no one knows exactly what it could be. Some have speculated it could be the return of the “Team Link” perk from Black Ops 4, that would allow you to see enemies your teammates have spotted on your mini-map.

This theory comes from the icon having a sword, just like how the Team Link perk did in Black Ops 4 (pictured below).

We doubt that this would be the perk, though, considering Forward Intel is in the same perk 1 slot and gives you the locations of where enemies spawn, on top of making your mini-map larger.

If these perks were added in the future, they would be the 6th perk for both the perk 1 and perk 3 slots. Perk 2 would still be left with 5 perks.

There’s no guarantee these perks will be added to the game, as they could be cut content from development. Of course, they could also be planned content coming later in the game’s lifecycle.
