Those who play enough of the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War beta on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One will get an SMG weapon blueprint when the game drops this November. Players just have to reach level 10 to qualify for the freebie.
The weapon is called Mutual Animosity and if the picture is anything to go by, the blueprint may feature a scope and suppressor. Receiving the weapon is as simple as reaching level 10, which can be done by playing any of the available modes when the beta goes live on October 8 for PlayStation 4 preorder customers.
Publisher Activision hinted at what players can expect from the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War beta, which has two beta weekends running this month. This includes a mix of maps, modes, and playlists. Some game types include Domination, Kill Confirmed, Team Deathmatch, the new 6v6 VIP Escort, and more. The beta will also contain a progression system familiar to Call of Duty fans that lets players unlock loadout options like equipment, scorestreaks, and weapons. Preloading for the beta is now live.
The Mutual Animosity weapon blueprint is not the only goodie players get for participating in the beta. If players hop into a Black Ops Cold War game during the beta on any platform and link their Activision Account to Call of Duty: Mobile, they will receive Russell Adler as a playable Operator in Mobile.
To get early access to the Black Ops Cold War beta, players will have to preorder the game. Those who preorder on PlayStation 4 will receive beta access first, which runs from October 8-9. The beta then opens to all PS4 users from October 10-12. PC and Xbox One preorder customers, and all PS4 players, will get access from October 15-16. Afterward, the beta opens to everyone from October 17-19.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launches on November 13 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/Series X. Check out our Call of Duty: Black Ops preorder guide to learn more about the bonuses and editions available, in addition to access to the beta.
