A Call of Duty leaker has found some files that would suggest barbed wire and shields could be coming to BOCW. If the leak is confirmed, they’re expected to be welcomed as new Field Upgrades.

The latest Call of Duty game has a lot of different weapons and equipment for players to use. Ranging from sticky Semtex grenades to motion-sensor triggered Proximity Mines.

The core focus, post-launch, has been the arrival of new guns, maps, and gameplay balancing. Though it seems that even more unexpected content is on the way. A CoD leaker has found evidence of two new pieces of tech for players to look forward to.

Leaker reveals new Black Ops Cold War Field Upgrades

In a post on Twitter, user Declassified has shown off some new photos from Black Ops Cold War that give us a glimpse into the future.

The message contains two photos that appear to be taken on the Raid map, and they each contain a different piece of equipment.

The first one appears to be a roll of barbed wire that looks like it stretches out to a meter or two. Barbed wire is not an uncommon appearance for a competitive FPS like Call of Duty. The item is used regularly in esports game Rainbow Six Siege to slow enemies down.

So whether it will be used to entangle enemies and greatly decrease their movement speed, or perhaps be a method of depleting someone’s health remains to be seen.

On the other hand, we also have a reinforced shield that will presumably be used to hide behind and take cover. Again, this is another popular item in Rainbow Six Siege as it’s a great piece of equipment to seek refuge behind and aid you in hiding and capturing objectives.

Declassified has leaked information about CoD previously and so whilst we must take these two pictures with a hint of trepidation, there’s also reason to suggest that these are accurate.

We are already approaching the beginning of Black Ops Cold War Season 2 and, like Season 1, we can expect to have new stuff to look forward. Will it include barbed wire and a shield? We’ll have to wait and see.
