Black Ops Cold War has some impressive pistols that players regularly use as their main weapon. So we’ve not only tiered them but ranked them from worst to best.
Have you ever wondered why there are players that tear up lobbies with just Pistols? That’s because CoD: Cold War has some seriously impressive Pistols.
As usual, it’s very easy for them to get lost amongst the shuffle given that the game has so many varied and viable firearms. But you’d be surprised just how well Pistols can get the job done. So we’re going to assign them a graded tier and rank them too.
CoD: Black Ops Cold War: weapon tier list
Firstly, we will assign each of Cold War’s Pistols an official tier before we place them in order.
Here is our official tier list of all of Black Ops Cold War’s Pistols in alphabetical order:
- S-Tier: Diamatti
- A-Tier: 1911
- B-Tier: Magnum
Just to explain the system, our S-Tier weapons are the top-of-the-line powerhouses, the A-Tier are great, the B-Tier weapons are just missing something, and C-Tier ones are not worth your time.
CoD: Black Ops Cold War best Pistols
3. Magnum Revolver
The gun unmistakably made famous by Clint Eastwood in Dirty Harry, this fearsome hand cannon should always be a meta weapon in any CoD game, yet it never seems to be.
Every single shot you fire tries to take the gun out of your hand with its incredible recoil. Its fire rate is slow, and its only redeeming quality is its damage. In all, it doesn’t hold a candle to the other Pistols.
It’s fast, it has good damage, and it doesn’t limit how you can build your own 1911 loadout to destroy with.
It hasn’t had the attention of some other game-changing meta breakers, but again, there’s a reason why people run classes solely using the 1911.
On the other hand, the Diamatti is just a straight-up broken beast of a Pistol. What isn’t there to like about the Diamatti?

Its fire rate can be turned into a mini-SMG, the burst-fire rounds allow you to deal an unbelievable amount of damage, and its range is tremendous. If you want to have some extra fun, then try out its Akimbo version too. The Diamatti is a weapon you easily could, and should, try operating as a primary weapon.
