Make a masterpiece ... or not

Gunsmith Customs have finally arrived in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The special customization option lets you mix and match blueprint parts to create the beautiful weapon of your dreams ... or something breathtakingly hideous, if that’s more your style.

The Gunsmith Customs mode in Black Ops Cold War allows players to create their own weapon designs by selecting pieces and parts from any of that weapon’s other blueprints. That means that if you have an AK-47, you can pull the barrel from one blueprint, the stock from another, and the magazine from a third to give the gun your own personal flair.

Players can make up to 10 custom blueprints for each weapon in the game, and they can use those weapons in Black Ops Cold War’s multiplayer component or in Zombies.

In addition to Gunsmith Customs, Friday’s Black Ops Cold War patch added Rivas to the game as a new Operator, who is available in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. Finally, the patch also adjusted the XP in Dead Ops Arcade 3 and changed bosses in the Room of Judgment for solo players.
