New Death Machine In Cold War + The Warzone Season 2 Update
Prepare thy hard drives, Season Two is coming!
With Season Two of Warzone less than twenty-four hours away, many fans are wondering what the Warzone Season 2 update size will be.
What Will The Update Size Be?
There’s nothing official yet when it comes to the size of Season Two’s update. But based on previous update sizes, we think we’ve put together a pretty good guess.
The latest Cold War patch went live this morning (February 24), and the update size across all platforms was:
Xbox – 15GB to 22GB
PC – 30GB
PlayStation – 11GB to 13GB
When Season One of Warzone and Cold War went live back in December of 2020, the update size across all platforms was:
Xbox – 27GB to 35GB
PC – 62GB to 70GB
PlayStation – 21GB to 42GB
If you take into account the previous update size for Season One, it’s likely Season Two will have a similar file size. However, Activision did announce they would be trying to keep update sizes down, but with the recent Cold War update I’m not sure how true that is.
I’d expect PlayStation users to have the smallest update size, ranging between 20GB and 35GB. Whilst PC usually has a much higher update size of anywhere between 40GB and 70GB. Xbox users can expect to have a similar size as PlayStation, possibly between 25GB and 45GB.
These numbers are simply speculation, fans likely won’t get to know the exact size until the Warzone Season 2 update goes live.
What’s Coming To Season Two?
The new season of Warzone and Cold War is looking to bring some major changes and content, you can find a list of the known changes below.
There will be a total of four new operators set to arrive throughout the course of the season. These operators are:

Samantha Paxis (NATO)
Terell Wolf (NATO)

There will also be six new weapons for players to obtain either through the battle pass, or included during the season’s progress. These weapons are:
FARA 83 (Assault Rifle)
LC10 (Sub-Machine Gun)
R1 Shadow Hunter (Crossbow)
ZRG 20mm (Sniper Rifle)
The Death Machine appears to be incredibly powerful!
Cold War has introduced the Death Machine in its latest update. There were a lot of changes in today’s (February 24) update in preparation for Season Two which launches in less than twenty-four hours, but one of the big changes was the introduction of the Death Machine. You can get a sneak peek of the Death Machine in the Season Two gameplay trailer below. Or jump in yourself as the Death Machine is available right now in Cold War!
Death Machine Stats
Unlike some of the other scorestreaks, the Death Machine will continue counting kills towards your next streak. So you’ll be able to cause absolute chaos whilst continuing your streak progression.
Let’s run through some of the stats behind the new Death Machine:
6 Seconds to empty the whole clip
30 damage per bullet to the body
72 damage per bullet to the head
34ms rev-up time
The new scorestreak is the fastest firing weapon in Cold War and does a great amount of damage, especially with headshots. There’s no aim down sight on the Death Machine, but with a small rev-up time before firing, it’s possible to get killed in that short time. So, I’d recommend keeping these gunfights between a medium and long-range.
I also wouldn’t waste your time trying to take down enemy streaks such as helicopters or UAV’s with the Death Machine, it doesn’t do much damage to them.
How To Obtain The Death Machine
The Death Machine is a scorestreak that can be used in any multiplayer game mode in Black Ops Cold War.
The scorestreak costs two thousand two hundred points to use, or an eight kill streak if you’re playing a game mode like Team Death Match.
Best Way To Use The Death Machine
The scorestreak can be used however and wherever you like! But if you want the DualShockers recommendation, we found the new Death Machine is best used on smaller maps like Nuketown. We’d also recommend pairing this streak with the War Machine for ultimate carnage. Maybe mute the lobby beforehand though, you might get given some hate for this setup.
When Does Season Two Start?
Season Two begins at 9PM PT Feb. 24 / 12AM ET Feb. 25 / 5AM GMT Feb. 25
