Raven Software delivered on a previous tease of adding an attachment like the Modern Warfare Tac Laser to Black Ops Cold War Sniper Rifles in the Season 3 Reloaded update.

The Warzone community had their interest piqued back on May 7, 2021, when Raven Software teased in their patch notes for that day’s update that there were looking to add a Black Ops Cold War version of a popular Modern Warfare Sniper Rifle attachment to the Call of Duty battle royale.

This tease quickly caused the community to wonder what exactly Raven Software was planning with this tease, with many players suggesting it would be the creation of a counterpart to the Modern Warfare Tac Laser attachment for Black Ops Cold War Sniper Rifles.

Fortunately, this tease did not go unanswered for long, as the Season 3 Reloaded update for Warzone revealed that Raven Software had indeed created a Tac Laser counterpart for the Black Ops Cold War snipers.

In the official patch notes for the Warzone Season 3 Reloaded update, the developers explained that they believed the Black Ops Cold War Snipers needed more “value attachment” or “attachments that provide stats that are relevant to Snipers.”

This reasoning led to the developers completely reworking the Swat 5mW Laser Sight to provide benefits similar to what the Tac laser attachment provides Modern Warfare Sniper Rifles in Warzone.

Players will now find that when they equip the Swat 5mW Laser Sight to their Black Ops Cold War Sniper Rifles, it no longer decreases hip spread or aim down sight speed. The Swat 5mW Laser Sight now increases aiming stability and greatly increases aim down sight speed.

This reworking of the Swat 5mW Laser Sight is no doubt exciting for Warzone snipers, as the Tac Laser helped provide bonuses to Modern Warfare Sniper Rifles that made them much better to use than their Black Ops Cold War counterparts in many ways, but now these same bonuses are available for the likes of the Tundra, Pelington, ZRG 20mm, and Swiss K31.
