Treyarch has applied a brand new update for Black Ops Cold War on May 21, and we have all of the new patch notes covered for you.

The Season 3 Reloaded update for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War arrived this week and brought a plethora of new content for players to experience, including major weapon buffs and nerfs, a new Outbreak Main Quest Easter Egg, and the new Rambo and John McClane Operators.

However, it also brought some unintended issues that Treyarch has been hard at work fixing following the Season 3 Reloaded update going live.

These fixes and the official arrival of a Double XP weekend and the teasing of the arrival of the highly-anticipated Baseball Bat melee weapon are the focus of the Black Ops Cold War May 21 update, and we have all of the patch notes for you below:

Black Ops Cold War May 21 update Patch Notes

Welcome to Season Three Reloaded! We hope everyone’s enjoying all the new maps, modes, and ‘80s action packed into this latest update.

We’ve made a handful of improvements and fixes since the mid-season update kicked off this week, including the restoration of our Multi-Team Elimination and Multi-Team Moshpit modes after sorting out some performance issues. See below for the full of other additions, including the option to enable the hit marker and headshot sounds from Black Ops 4 in Audio settings (one of our personal favorites).

For those wondering how to earn the new limited-time Medals you might have seen popping up in your feed in Multiplayer and Zombies, we’ve got the full list in the notes below! If you’re going for every event reward by completing all 18 challenges during the ‘80s Action Heroes event, be sure to get familiar and collect ‘em all.

Black Ops Cold War May 21 update Patch Notes

As we mentioned in our Season Three Reloaded blog, the Prestige Shop has some new Legacy Calling Cards on offer from previous Black Ops games, and now’s your chance to unlock them twice as fast during 2XP Weekend! Double your Prestige earn rate now through 10AM PT Monday, May 24th in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. We’ll see you out there.

And last but not least…

If you’ve been looking to crack some skulls with a new melee weapon, look no further than the Baseball Bat arriving in Black Ops Cold War starting tomorrow! Players can unlock this bad boy via an in-game challenge in Multiplayer and Zombies, or as a super-menacing Weapon Blueprint in a new Store bundle.

After that, our sixth new weapon of Season Three is up next as the AMP63 machine pistol comes to both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone later in the season.
