Black Ops Cold War Alpha Sniping Was Overpowered On Purpose, Dev Says


The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War alpha test was held this weekend on PlayStation 4, and if you were one of the many, many people who took part, you might have noticed that the sniper rifles felt a little too powerful.

This was intentional, according to Treyarch lead designer Tony Flame. He said on Twitter that snipers were buffed during the alpha, and you can expect a nerf for the upcoming beta in October based on player data from the alpha weekend.

Flame also pointed out that the alpha version of Black Ops Cold War that you might have played this weekend represents an outdated look at where the game stands today. The studio has made a range of improvements already, covering weapons and movement, as well as “new gameplay and system features.”

The Black Ops Cold War beta begins on October 8 for PS4, before coming to Xbox One and PC later. You can check out GameSpot’s Black Ops Cold War beta guide to find out everything you need to know.

Black Ops Cold War, which is a direct sequel to the original Black Ops, launches on November 13 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It’s also coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S that day.
