Despite the addition of the H.A.R.P scorestreak with Season 1, it seems that Treyarch could be welcoming the return of the Black Ops 4 Sniper’s Nest killstreak into BOCW.

Black Ops Cold War already has a wealth of scorestreaks for players to use in matches, from the tactical Spy Plane to the simply devastating Gunship.

With the launch of Season 1, Treyarch added the H.A.R.P — a scorestreak that reveals the position of every enemy and the direction they’re running — but it seems it won’t be the last added to the game.

Thanks to a strange glitch that appeared in-game, we could see the Sniper’s Nest scorestreak become part of the scorestreak armory in Black Ops Cold War.

New BOCW scorestreak hinted at

Whether it’s due to unused assets from a previous Call of Duty, or because of future content that has conspicuously been left in, there is a likelihood that Sniper’s Nest does exist.

The MW2 OG Twitter page has been sent a video showing how one player managed to reveal this piece of information. It doesn’t even require any strange glitches or convoluted instructions to appear either.

In the video, the player calls in a Care Package into a game on Nuketown. As the mysterious box of killing-potential is being delivered to the map, the player then decides to mark their territory by tagging it.

Upon doing this, a prompt appears on the left side of the screen saying that they “Marked Sniper’s Nest”. The package arrives with a VTOL Escort, which is great in itself, but it’s not Sniper’s Nest.

Debuting in Black Ops 4, the Sniper’s Nest scorestreak allowed players to call in a helicopter with two absolutely pin-point marksmen that could laser enemies with one shot.

As with most scorestreaks, the vehicle is susceptible to enemy fire and can easily be brought down using a combination of weapons and anti-scorestreak devices.

It’s not exactly a necessity in Black Ops Cold War right now. If it does appear, then Treyarch may just hold off until the launch of Season 2 before throwing it into the mix anyway.
