Treyarch rolled out some notable changes for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War ahead of the official launch of Season 3 for the first-person shooter. One of these changes that has already caught the community’s eye deals with a new way you can select your Operators.

Black Ops Cold War continued the trend started by Modern Warfare of having unique characters players can choose to play as that do not possess special weapons or abilities like Black Ops III or Infinite Warfare.

Players have the option to choose from an array of characters for when they play Zombies or Multiplayer, but sometimes it isn’t easy to pick which character you want to play when there are plenty of solid choices.

This potential indecisive looks to be why Treyarch added an interesting new feature for the Operator select screen in Black Ops Cold War.

From now on, Black Ops Cold War players have the ability to select a random Operator and not have to worry about deciding which character they want to play as. Or, players who may not care which Operator they go into battle with can bypass some time. You can see what this looks like in-game thanks to chrpskwk on Reddit.

Warzone players will recognize this feature, as the random Operator select feature has been in the battle royale for some time now and has finally made its way into Treyarch’s latest title.

The addition of this feature is just one of the many things that will be new for players in the first-person shooter when it comes to Season 3 content. This new period of content for the game will see the addition of multiple new weapons like the PPSH and Swiss K31. New Operators will also be joining the fold, such as Price ’84 and Wraith.

While the addition of the random Operator feature has been seen as a positive in the community, the slide canceling nerf that Treyarch implemented has seen mixed reviews within the community, with some players welcoming the change and others sad to see the fast-paced mechanic not be as strong as it was before the game’s most recent update.

There is no doubt that Black Ops Cold War will be very different than before following the next couple of days filled with injections of Season 3 content for players to enjoy.
