As the next competitive season draws nearer, starting January, the competitive ruleset (V1) has just been announced. Read on for a concise breakdown!

Maps and Modes for CoD Black Ops Cold War

  • Hardpoint: Cartel, Checkmate, Crossroads, Garrison, Moscow
  • Search and Destroy: Checkmate, Crossroads, Garrison, Miami, Moscow

Banned Items

With a combination of gentlemen agreements and bans from the CoD League – the following are prohibited for 2021:

  • Primary Weapons – no LMGs allowed
  • Secondary Weapons – shotguns, special weapons and launchers are all prohibited
  • Attachments – body (SWAT 5MW Laser Sight and Ember Sighting Point), stock (dual wield)
  • Tactical – stimshot, decoy
  • Lethal – C4, semtex and tomahawk
  • Field Upgrade – proximity mine, field mic, gas mine

So far, everything has been agreed upon except the banning of semtex. Indeed, the lethal has been a part of every competitive scene.
