The choice of loadout is also immensely important in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Treyarch has had a function for years that could make it much easier to try out new loadouts, but unfortunately it hasn't made it into the game yet.
With every new Call of Duty, countless guides and videos about the best loadouts appear, and of course also with Black Ops Cold War. But no matter whether you want to try the weapon and perk selection of a well-known streamer or you want to give a friend your most successful sniper setup, it's always a bit cumbersome.
Activision and Treyarch have already found a solution for this, but this only exists on paper so far. A patent speaks of the possibility Share loadouts with other players via social media. The patent was submitted by David Vonderhaar, the design director who has been responsible for the Black Ops series at Treyarch since the first part. Some documents relating to the patent date from 2015 and 2016.
The patent explains that taking on third-party loadouts is a "Bad and unsatisfactory player experience" and therefore such a system for sharing loadouts would be good. Currently, loadouts still have to be copied manuallyTo simplify this process should benefit all players. Players could then share their best loadout for the AK-74 via Twitter, Facebook and ideally via the multiplayer services of PlayStation and Xbox at the touch of a button.
So far this system seems to exist only in theory, maybe the appearance of the patent will ensure that players communicate a need for this system. It would be more of a convenience feature, but nobody would mind if video games become more practical.
