Black Ops Cold War May 6 patch notes: CARV.2 tactical rifle, Yamantau, Diesel, more

Black Ops Cold War May 6 update has brought the new CARV.2 tactical rifle, the Yamantau + Diesel 24/7 playlist, and more.

Treyarch has just released a brand new update for Call of Duty Black Ops Cold on the 6th of May.

The May 6 update brings a brand new weapon to the game,  the CARV.2 tactical rifle.

The CARV.2 is a burst-fire weapon, and Treyarch explained that it "stands out in the tactical rifle class with its high bullet velocity output, offering powerful damage, solid recoil control, and a large ammo pool from the start."

Asides from the new weapon, the update also brings Season 3’s newest 6v6 maps with the Yamantau + Diesel 24/7 playlist.

There are also new Party Games playlists, featuring Gun Game, Sticks and Stones.

No balance changes this week though, maybe they first want to see how will the new weapon perform.
