Black Ops Cold War Beta Testers Will Receive Free SMG Blueprint at Launch

Black Ops Cold War Beta players who will achieve level 10 in the game will receive a free SMG Weapon Blueprint after the game is released in November.

Anyone who has reached level 10 while playing the beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will be rewarded with a free SMG blueprint after the full game is released in November. An open beta for Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War is announced to be coming this week, which is expected soon after the PlayStation 4 exclusive alpha weekend. Similar to the alpha, which was revealed during the PlayStation 5 Showcase last September, the beta will start as a PlayStation 4 exclusive event.

The beta schedules are more complicated this time around and the event will be held on two separate weekends. From October 8 to October 9, the beta will be available exclusively for PlayStation 4 users who preordered the Black Ops Cold War digital edition on either the PlayStation 5 or PlayStation 4.

The following days, from October 10 to October 12, the beta will be opened to all PlayStation 4 users. On the next weekend, the process will be the same, beginning with exclusive access for those who preordered and then switching to an open format. That weekend though, the beta will be available to players on all platforms that Call of Duty Black Ops will be launching on.

All players who managed to reach level ten during the open beta on any platform will receive a reward upon the official release of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War. In a post on the official website of Activision, all the information for the upcoming beta test was disclosed.

An SMG Weapon Blueprint will be one of the rewards for playing up to level ten during the open beta. The SMG Weapon Blueprint is named Mutual Animosity and will come along with a scope and suppressor installed.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare introduced the blueprint and gunsmith feature for weapons and will be adapted into Black Ops Cold War. The gunsmith allows players to customize weapons with a wide array of various attachments which changes the gun’s stats all around.


Weapon blueprints are an additional feature of the gunsmith which changes the weapon’s design while also providing access to attachments that have not yet unlocked by the player. Aside from the blueprint that will be given out during the beta of Black Ops Cold War, a Russell Adler Operator skin will be given out for free for all Call of Duty Mobile players who plays the beta and successfully links their Activision accounts.

The weapon blueprints have been a great addition to the Call of Duty franchise and giving out a free SMG weapon blueprint as an incentive is a good way of getting fans more hyped for the beta. Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War will have a full gunsmith system, and collecting a new library of weapon blueprints is going to be an exciting task.
