Black Ops Cold War Weapon Feels Different With PS5 DualSense

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will utilize PS5 DualSense’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers to make every gun feel and behave differently.

Thanks to natively programmed support of PlayStation 5’s haptic feedback, every weapon in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will feel different when using a DualSense controller. The advanced technology is widely advertised to bring the sensation of touch to Sony’s next-gen console.

With PS5 already available in select countries, lucky owners will soon experience both haptic feedback and adaptive triggers in action. While the former technology is based on improved built-in vibration engines inside the DualSense controller, the latter relies on varying levels of resistance to simulate different scenarios when pulling the triggers. Both the innovations should make PS5 games feel more realistic and responsive with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War being among the first titles to take advantage of the technologies.

In an interview with GameSpot, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War lead game designer Tony Flame revealed that while being a cross-platform and cross-generation title, the game is designed in such a way so that players on different platforms do not get any advantages because of differences in ecosystems, performance, or computing power. But even though all the versions of the game are intended to be pretty similar in cross-play multiplayer regardless of the gaming device they are launched on, PS5 owners will still benefit from incorporated support of adaptive triggers and haptic feedback. According to Flame, the DualSense controller is able to transmit the very feeling of shooting a weapon thanks to built-in vibrating motors. At the same time, pulling the trigger will feel different for every single gun in the game representing varying levels of resistance.

PS5 DualSense Adaptive Triggers


Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is the latest installment in the long-running series of warfare shooters. Story-wise, it serves as a prequel to the Black Ops sub-series concentrating on the Cold War era of espionage and political tension. Interestingly, the game will somewhat replace the previous entry, Modern Warfare, but not the Warzone battle royale standalone. Instead, the battle royale title will benefit from the release of Black Ops Cold War as all the content from the newest game including weapons, Operatives, Killstreaks, and much more, will be accessible from Warzone thanks to a unified Battle Pass.

While the intriguing features of haptic feedback and adaptive triggers have been mostly an enticing offer, it now becomes evident that PS5’s DualSense controller will indeed introduce a brand new way of experiencing video games. With each gun feeling and behaving differently in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, it’s safe to say that PS5 is about to start a small revolution in gaming considering all the opportunities that developers are now open to.
