Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War players can now equip every weapon attachment in the game’s ongoing beta, as all accessories have been opened for all participants. The beta testing phase started last October 8 for PlayStation 4 owners who purchased the game’s preorder and opened to all PlayStation 4 players last October 10.
Last weekend, Xbox One and PC players were provided access to the open beta, and eventually PlayStation 4 users. Trying to get the most out of the gaming community’s feedback, Treyarch and Activision have extended the open beta for another day, which will end on Tuesday, October 20.
However, not everything has been rainbows and butterflies during the beta as there have been multiple reports that the game is encountering a massive hacking problem. The most notable hacks have been the existence of aimbots which allows users to aim perfectly on opponents and wallhacks that allow players to see enemies through walls.

Aside from access to all attachments, Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War is allowing beta testers more control over the game’s settings by integrating more HUD options and adding a FOV slider to its console versions.
Taking advantage of the decision to prolong the beta for another day, Activision and Treyarch have revealed via the official Twitter account of Call of Duty that beta players now have access to all weapon attachments. This feature will continue until the beta ends on Tuesday.
Along with the announcement is a short clip featuring some of the most popular guns installed with different attachments such as various barrels, muzzles, and scopes. In addition, players will be rewarded with double experience points while leveling up their equipment during the beta.
Weapon attachments are icing on the cake for most weapons in the Call of Duty franchise. Players level up their profiles and weapons to unlock accessories for their load-outs. While these attachments on weapons weren’t part of the success in the first games of the Call of Duty franchise, they became more critical to holding one’s own, especially when attempting to hit long shots with guns that aren’t traditionally made for lengthy gunfights. Arguably the most helpful attachments are the perks and scopes players can unlock over time.
PC players will seem to have the most freedom in terms of customizing their attachments and load-outs, especially when it comes to fixing their gun’s aim stabilization and recoil. It is much simpler to control a weapon’s aim using a mouse rather than a controller’s joystick which is why PC users can focus more on more technical attachments that can enhance aim, increase ammo, and grant perks. Now that everyone has access to all attachments, real experimentation on various weapons between different platforms can begin.
