Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War players can breathe at least one sigh of relief as Treyarch confirms that weapon XP gain has been increased as part of the PlayStation 5 title's latest patch. Arriving overnight for fans, the update simply reads: "Increased Weapon XP earn rates for both Multiplayer and Zombies". We don't know by how much it has been increased, but at least attachments will now definitely unlock at a faster rate.
Besides that fix, the latest update addresses an out-of-bounds glitch found in the new Nuketown '84 map that players had been taking advantage of as well as progression tweaks for Zombies. Weapon XP has also been increased in the mode as it wasn't hitting Treyarch's targets in solo matches and later rounds, and the Napalm Burst Ammo Mod should now reliably reward XP. A patch all about fixing experience gain then, it seems.
