Black Ops Cold War’s Worst Weapon Is Getting A Major Buff

Black Ops Cold War's worst weapon will be getting a huge buff soon after Treyarch has responded to player criticism. It appears that a huge change is underway for one of the game's most laughably underpowered weapons.

If you have been using Cold War's E-Tool, you may have noticed how terrible this weapon actually is. Now, however, Treyarch is implementing a huge change to make the weapon much more viable.

Here is everything we know about the update which is set to turn Black Ops Cold War's worst weapon into a much more powerful tool. Even if it isn't a vast improvement, disrespecting your enemies with a shovel to the face is bound to be quite satisfying.

Cold War's Worst Weapon Gets Major Buff

Interestingly, Cold War's worst weapon will be getting a buff alongside a major weapon balancing update coming in Cold War Season 2 Reloaded. It looks like Treyarch may finally be listening to players who believe that the game is in dire need of balancing.

Around a week ago we posted about Treyarch's latest melee addition to Black Ops Cold War, the E-Tool. Funnily enough, since its addition to the game, players have quickly realized that the new E-Tool is the game's worst weapon.

However, if you are looking for the best melee weapons in Black Ops Cold War, we've got you covered. You may want to put down the shovel and pick up one of these weapons instead.

The E-Tool is a weapon that many fans were quite excited to get their hands on, however now players want to wash their hands of it. The E-Tool is so laughably bad that it is insanely difficult to secure a kill using it. Players may want to stick to using the best weapons in Cold War multiplayer instead.

Interestingly, however, Treyarch has teased that they are implementing a major buff for the underpowered and underused weapon. Take a look below to see Treyarch's official Twitter response to fans asking for an E-Tool rework:
