How to prepare your game for the upcoming Treyarch Title - Call of Duty Cold War
What is Call of Duty: Cold War?
Being dubbed by the internet as Call Of Duty Cold War, The new COD 2020 title is being worked on this year by Treyarch and Raven Software, published by Activision.
News of Call of Duty Cold war has been scarce up until recently, when suddenly and out of nowhere, a website appeared which appeared to showcase an augmented reality based off of the games events and timeline. This website has only been up for give or take a week, but has been showing messages on the old TV. Messages of a similar nature have been found around the map in Call of Duty Warzone, the free to play battle royale developed by infinity ward.
The website can be found here: https://pawntakespawn.com/tv
When clicking onto the website, you are met with room ressemblent from times past. An old TV is seen with no signal. Over the past week or so, these were where the messages and the teaser trailer were displayed. At the time, there was a digital timer on the tape player at the bottom right of the screen. Before the first ever teaser was launched, the timer displayed the date and time of which the teaser would drop.

Call of Duty Cold War - when is the release date?
It is currently unknown when Call of Duty Cold War will release. Activision have not come out and formally announced a date as of yet. Going by the trend of the majority of other titles, we reckon the release date will be somewhere around the november to december mark. This may be pushed back further though, as the current worldwide pandemic has all industries tied down, focing work related restrictions and putting pressure on us all. We can imagine it will release this year though, considering how well the marketing has been pushed forward so far.
Call of Duty Cold War - The Official Teaser Trailer
The first trailer has been released for Call of Duty Cold War, posted by IGN on youtube. This was when they announced the title of the game was Call of Duty Cold War.

Multiplayer and campaign modes
All of Treyarch's titles have come with innovative, fun and competitive game modes. Multiplayer maps and gamemodes have always promoted high action fast paced gameplay, great for players who are good at target switching. The guns are your run of the mill realistic weapons, all suited for a varied mix of aiming styles.
No multiplayer or campaign has been confirmed, but it is most likely that treyarch will be following their usual formulae of Campaign, multiplayer and Zombies modes, alongside DLC, battlepasses and unlockable items as you progress through multiplayer modes.
How you can prepare your aim using Aiming.Pro
Aiming.Pro is the best free aiming training solution. Our trainer is designed to enhance all aspects of your aim, helping you win gunfights and take your plays to the next level. With our advanced tools, you can analyse your aim and understand your strengths and weaknesses.

Setting up your sensitivity
You can grab the sensitivity from any game and throw it straight into Aiming.Pro. This process is time efficient and easy to follow! Using the same sensitivity and FOV as your main game will allow you to ensure a consistent feeling is maintained as you swap from your main game to the aim trainer.
Firstly, navigate to the sensitivity settings that can be found through the navigation bar. From here, you will see that you have two tabs: “Match to a Game” and “Custom”.
You need to select the game of choice from the expansive list of games. Select your game of choice and then type in the sensitivity into the input box below.
The next step is to take your custom Aiming.Pro sensitivity and throw it directly into the “custom” tab.
Head over to the Custom tab, and input your custom aiming.pro sensitivity directly into there. Lastly, input the same FOV as your main game of choice. Be sure to know the difference between 16:9, 4:3 and 1:1 FOV, as they all give different values to their actual degrees. For example, CSGO FOV is 90 - 4:3, which equals 106.26 - 16:9, which equals 73.74 - 1:1.
Make sure to save all your changes - now you are ready to begin aim training!
Measuring your performance
You need to understand your current aiming skills. This means that you need to target both your strong and weak points by playing a varied selection of scenarios. Head to the Skill Assessment page and explore the categories!
The categories are as follows:
- Overall - A combination of most general skills
- Tracking - A focus of smooth tracking, reactive tracking and Directional Tracking
- Flick - A focus on fast and precise movements to single targets
- Click - Heavy emphasis on speed, calibration and mouse control
- Speed - A category for all the speed demons who want to focus on speed, efficient movement and quick cognitive processing
We recommend that you start on the Overall category, as this is the most well rounded section on the site.
The other categories go more in-depth about targeting specific aiming styles, so don’t hesitate to stick in and try them out!
Training your Core Skills
Aiming involves a plethora of skills and it is hard to tackle all of them in just a set of scenarios. Using our core skills trainer, you can target general or specific fundamental aiming skills, ensuring you are building your mechanics to a sustainable level.
To do this, go to the “Train” Section of the site. This can be seen on the left side where the Dashboard is. You will be met with the core skills categories.
Focus on your biggest weaknesses first to ensure maximum learning. We recommend starting in that category. If you choose tracking as a skill to train, you will be met with subcategories:
- Smoothness focuses on ensuring you are making smooth movements when tracking a target. This is a hugely fundamental skill which will ensure the maximum potential of learning complex skills
- Reactivity forces you to react to unpredictable target movement instead of trying to guess when the target will change direction. A more complex skill and very necessary to learn!
- Prediction - This skill is a little easier than reactivity, helping you focus on making the correct adjustments rather than reactive to changes in movement.
Each drill comes with a set of levels which act as a variation of the same game rules, but with more difficult parameters as you move down the levels.
Custom Drills and Playlists
Aside from the Skill builder, you can access drills and playlists which the community has built over time. You can choose between searching for Drills or Playlists separately!
Use our search filters to find the content for you!
You may also check the leaderboards and other statistics by clicking the dropdown at the top-right of each Drill or Playlist and selecting “View”. This will bring up the leader, where you can now check where you stack up on that particular Drill!
