Alongside the launch of Cold War Season 4 Reloaded, Treyarch has also made a big change to the game’s Assault Rifles and their Iron Sights. The update has been appreciated by many members of the Call of Duty community.

For months, players have been decidedly mixed over Cold War’s Iron Sights attributing the 50/50 reaction to the sights being too zoomed in. Thanks to an update implemented just before Season 4 Reloaded, Assault Rifles handle much differently.

The general consensus is that whilst clean and smooth, the Iron Sights can sometimes obscure too much of the screen, or don’t provide enough visibility. Players are very appreciative of the changes that Treyarch has made to the game in Season 4.

Reddit user starless_salmon has showcased the brand new AR Iron Sights in all their glory, demonstrated examples of this with images of the XM4, Krig 6, QBZ-83, and the FFAR 1.

The new Iron Sights and ADS as a whole noticeably show a lot more of the surrounding area around the gun, meaning there’s plenty of scope to observe the environment.

Players generally liked a lot of the core mechanics of Cold War’s Alpha and Beta versions, and this change is proving to be a welcome one for many.

The update to the Iron Sights is another example of Treyarch listening to its fanbase and addressing an issue – no matter how long it takes to do.
