Call of Duty fans who own a PS4, the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War beta is starting this week for you! While we already posted about the beta client now accessible on the PlayStation Store, Activision has announced a ton more details! Players will be glad to know that there are Black Ops Cold War beta rewards waiting to be obtained, and we also have the beta PC requirements and more.
Black Ops Cold War Beta Rewards:
Earn an SMG Weapon Blueprint for Reaching Level 10
All players who reach Level 10 within the Beta will receive an SMG Weapon Blueprint at the launch of Black Ops Cold War.
A Weapon Blueprint is a variant of a weapon family within the game, complete with its own unique name and cosmetic differences. Weapon Blueprints may also come pre-equipped with attachments, allowing you to use them on that specific weapon without needing to level it up to unlock those attachments organically. These attachments can be swapped out in favor of other attachments earned by levelling up the weapon normally.
By playing the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Beta, you can unlock Adler for use in Call of Duty: Mobile, allowing you to get a glimpse of this CIA ringleader for Frank Woods and company before the next generation of global combat begins on November 13th.
Check out this link for a detailed look into how to redeem the Adler skin for COD Mobile.
