Black Ops Cold War Season 2 Makes Major Changes to Miami Map

Black Ops Cold War Season 2 is almost here, and there are big changes coming to Miami.

With the start of a new season just around the corner, Black Ops Cold War fans area eagerly awaiting the future update. And to add to the excitement, Treyarch is revealing one final map coming to the game.

After hearing numerous complaints about Miami, one of Cold War’s best-looking, but worst maps to play on, the developer is switching things up.

We’re not sure that this will be enough to stop Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer fans from being angry at Season 2. However, it’s a nice touch, and we’re happy to see Treyarch listening to player feedback.

Miami’s Visibility Issues Fixed in Black Ops Cold War Season 2?

Miami is a great map to look at in Black Ops Cold War, but it comes with major visibility issues.

Although the ray-tracing on next-gen consoles and PCs leads to excellent visuals, the map’s dark setting only serves to cause issues in games. When running and gunning on Miami, Black Ops Cold War players complain about the game’s lack of visibility.

Thankfully, there’s a way to fix bad visibility in Black Ops Cold War. But now Treyarch is doing its part to help solve the issue.

It seems that Cold War players can enjoy a bonus Season 2 map, with a daytime variant of Miami. The new map promises to be far brighter than its late-night counterpart.

“Rise and shine, Miami… because soon, it will be time to infiltrate Ocean Park Drive during the day.”

But that’s not the only fix coming to Miami in Black Ops Cold War Season 2 either. The new map will be called Miami Strike, taking inspiration from Crossroads Strike.

As such, the sunny arena will be far smaller than the original arena. This is should help mitigate another common player complaint with the map.

“With the sun glistening off the colorful murals of Miami’s South Beach neighborhood, Miami Strike will focus the action into a smaller daytime rendition of the original map,” Treyarch confirms. “Whether it’s a white-knuckle game of TDM or a tense Hardpoint battle, the heat is always on in the streets of Miami.”

In the past, players have suggested these changes to Black Ops Cold War’s Miami, and Treyarch is finally taking action. Next up, fans want big changes to Nuketown to fix the map’s issues.

Also coming with Cold War Season 2 is the new open-world Zombies mode, Outbreak. And that’s not all, as Warzone Season 2 has new POIs, Modes, Scorestreaks, and more!

But a new Warzone map leak also reveals the End of Verdansk event is coming soon.
