In this video, we're breaking down the latest info we have on SKILL BASED MATCHMAKING, Weapon Tuning, & More in Black Ops Cold War! This weekend we're able to experience the Black Ops Cold War Alpha, and because of that players have began to talk about the return of Skill Based Matchmaking and it's effect on gameplay already, causing some Treyarch Devs to actually talk about how it work. Alongside that we also got word on some upcoming Weapon Tuning, including a future Sniper Nerf, & more! Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, or COD BOCW, has a long way to go until launch, and it seems a lot is going to change in the coming weeks and months!

Thanks so much for checking out another video! If you liked what you saw, make sure to subscribe to the channel with notifications on so you can catch all the future content! Every day there's a new video and/or stream to check out!

    Lots to talk about already with Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer! We've got Devs talking about SBMM, weapon nerfs, & more! Thanks for tuning in!


      SBMM needs to both stay, and get either a nerf.. OR.. simply add, to the BR menu, alongside every "Solo, Duo, Trio, Quad" a "Random Solo, Random Duo, Random Trio, Random Quad" which means you or your team, are in a completely RANDOMLY filled lobby.. you never know how big or how small a mix of randomly good teams or solos will be. its just that. its totally random. that cant be that hard to do... nothing matters, you simply drop yourself or squad into the appropriate random lobby, and there ya go.. why not ??

      I know this video is for Cold War but in warzone you should use the M91 I team wiped three teams with it

      Alpha is nice, but I would really like the character not to be able to shoot during the stand to prone animations, smaller hud, this seems to be to big for pc monitor , and overkill like a perk not like a wild card.

      I.M jawon I’ll give sbmm a chance one of the major devs did says there was going to be a major adjustment to it hopefully it’s a super weak version like aw or bo2 sbmm if it’s good I’ll support it if not burn it with mw it’ll open up my whole hard drive

    • I.M jawon
      I.M jawon

      Sbmm kills the game. Ninja dont work. Smg are weak. Alot of work to make me stay

    SBMM is the socialism of video games. Its the way the whole world is going so ofc games are doing it too. If Stalin could see us now he’d have a big o’l grin on his fat face.

  • famaffe

    The SBMM is ridiculous, after it kicked in i can barely break 1KD

  • Dom

    Cod cold war just came out and the sbmm is so strong I legit can't play multiplayer I think I will just stay with cod MW and cod cold war zombies

  • Major Ball
    Major Ball

    I’m confused. Isn’t skill based matchmaking good?

    • Major Ball
      Major Ball

      @WhosImmortal oh ok thanks

    • WhosImmortal

      not for players who are in the top 1-3%, they get to play a less fun game while the lower tier players can chill more

  • BannedTripod

    I only had issues with the controls feeling clunky. If that’s fixed then I’m good to go.

    In my opinion it’s really stupid that we can’t play hardcore in the beta I don’t like to shoot people in the face boing blank with a SHOTGUN and they don’t die

  • MetalHead218

    I love this game alot, the alpha was really fun but the sbmm ruined the beta, it's so bad that I'm just gonna cancel then. I'm tired of going against sweaty try hards every single game.

    People need to just stop comparing bocw to other games its a new game why would they make a game exactly the same as the last one it dont make since if you done like it go play the one you do like because i know damn well there not going to change a game for someone who doesn't like SBMM or if you don't like the movement speed like get used to it like every other game you've played and stop winning. Keep up the good work imm!

    I have no problem with sbmm, because I've learned from MW to not blindly run around corners without ADS. It's simple for me, if I can't get any kills up close and personal, I WILL MAX OUT MY M16 damage and Headshot fools from 3 football fields away. Oh no, I'm not making the same mistakes I made in MW.😆🤣 I'll be killing these hackers and modders from a safe distance as soon as I confirm they are cheating in the kill cams. On a different note. I wonder how the community will feel if they do remove sbmm and come to the realization that sbmm isn't the reason you're being mowed down, it was because of so many people using mods/cheats. 🤣

  • EliteMehcanix

    That statement is not true at all, the devs specifically said MW2 and B02 back then was CONNECTION based, why would they have even made a ranked playlist in B02 is there alreeady was a system in pubs, makes no sense at all. ALSO SBMM was a huge talking point in MW the fact that martin said nothing completely about it all year is just sus as hell. Just seems like another year of being in denial and making the game purely for the casuals and MTX's

  • Alex Emmins

    If they mess up sniping again I'm going to cry

  • Sebastian LaPlume

    Just glad I can see more than ten feet, the visual haze in mw really sucked. It was way to easy for people to prone out and you just couldn’t see them because there’s a weird low hanging fog covering everything. I was super happy to see that this game didn’t force me to have 10/20 vision so that campers were safe.

  • Chance

    If they nerf snipers bad , I won’t buy the game and I’ll just skip this one. The Sniping was the only thing that made me want the game . Gave me MW2 vibes and I loved it

  • Allan Mead

    its crap this should be a lot better they have had a year to do so

  • Zynos GD
    Zynos GD

    All I really want honestly, is to be able to use any weapon and have fun while doing so, not have to use the 2 or 3 OP guns , just like I could do in BO2. Of course some weapons were simply better, but you still could confidently use any weapon without having a 4:2 chance to get outgunned.

  • Zynos GD
    Zynos GD

    Treyarch: "We've heard the community about SBMM and WILL make changes..." The community: "finally, it was about time" Treyarch: "... and we will make it even stronger, to help newer players. Now, as soon as your K/D ratio is above 0.20 we will make sure to put you against players whose K/D is at least 5.6..."

    • Sdunned

      That's not how it works, they want everyone to have a 1.00 KD, they dont want ANYONE to go 30 and 5 EVER, they want you to get a kill or 2 and than die, thus why their kill streaks are the way they are.. and so every game I go 28 and 20, than 30 and 17, than 17 and 20, than 21 and 20.... and this to treyarch is considered "balance"

    • Major Ball
      Major Ball

      @Zynos GD got it i appreciate u

    • Zynos GD
      Zynos GD

      @Major Ball What’s bad is that, if you are playing somewhat sweaty, in general, then you can’t have a chill game afterwards cause all your lobbies will be sweaty af. What’s bad is that if you’re tired of getting medium games in terms of score, practicing to get better won’t do anything because the game will put you in lobbies where people are around equally as good as you. Back in te days, if you were an average player, you could decide to spend some time getting better, and then you would get better scores, and SBMM was a thing aswell back then, but it was way weaker than it is now. They need to tone it down a bit. Until then, you won’t see me playing a COD game, I’m done with the grinds and the sweat.

    • Major Ball
      Major Ball

      Explain to me. Isn’t SBMM good? Don’t you wanna play people your skill😂what’s bad about it

    • SomebadCandy 933
      SomebadCandy 933

      @masterdmcx I'm fine with playing someone better then me as long as I new noobs were actually being made to get better then sitting in their noob lobbies being fooled into thinking they were actually good

    All these ‘pro’ gamers complaining about SBMM is funny.

    • WhosImmortal

      all these pro gamers who have to deal with worse connections because of it? Yes, they should be complaining lol

  • Jeremy W
    Jeremy W

    Everyone that’s whining about sbmm are the same people that say “get better” to anyone that complains about the lobbies full of no-lifers!!! It’s hilarious......”get good” fools lmfao!!! Keep it up immortal


    I also just randomly fell off the zip line on Armada, so that’s another something to pass on

  • Dxrkxned

    i see what u mean but when i was playing with the boys we dominated every lobby for hours but when they left and i played alone i got one good game and then lost most of with a negative kd

    • Dxrkxned

      @pork chop lol no i played like 2-3 maches with a 3+ kd then got shit on

    • Gaming General
      Gaming General

      I made a video to remove SBMM if interested. It's short too and a legit workaround :).

  • TheMercsAssassin

    I thought I was crazy because I was LOVING and dominating the first 3 or less hours then was all pretty trash and sweaty when I came back later.

  • Kraxen

    earned a sub gg

    • Kraxen

      oh wait, im already subbed

  • Stonednapi

    As someone coming from a fighting game base, SBMM is needed. At least in those games for sure but I don’t see the value in the argue against it? People don’t want to get bodied? Like that’s a baby response in my eyes. I understand people hate losing but that’s life. It’s so funny when people call others “sweat lords” just because they are trying to win. Haha it’s hilarious. I didn’t mind the SBMM in MW but that’s me coming from a fighting game base. It’s good for the game. I don’t want to body everyone. I want a challenge.

    • WhosImmortal

      SBMM isn't good for a game when you dont have a rank to go for, there isn't a casual playlist and a ranked playlist, and skill takes priority over connection. 2 completely different worlds here my man

  • Zachary Ernst
    Zachary Ernst

    Complaining about SBMM is essentially just saying you want to stunt on people who are bad at the game and win with no effort.

    • WhosImmortal

      Not in the slightest. no SBMM doesn't mean it's only noobs vs pros bud.

  • Sir Tragic
    Sir Tragic

    Are you ever going to talk about the possibility of the betting mode like in black ops 1?

      likely won't return

    They just need to tune sbmm down so I don't get put in matches with 250 ping and get killed by 0 ping sweats that shoot me around corners and then get a match with my proper ping at around 60 and I can shit on everyone just make it not prioritize skill over connection FFS.

  • 540 Inc.

  • Elementsage

    People are really complaining about SBMM. It’s only fair to play against people that are as good as you versus trashing on people who are trying to get better. As you do better in your skill group you’ll be pitted against people with your skill.

  • Unoriginal Username
    Unoriginal Username

    I had people hard scoping me the entire time remove snipers from the alpha

  • J

    All I’m hearing is that everyone wants to dominate against bots/scrubs? But what about the average player?? We’re not you guys who play 8 hours a day.....I still don’t understand why SBMM is a big issue?? Some please explain!!

    • WhosImmortal



    Gamers: I love competitive games! CoD: We added SBMM so you can play with others at your level. Gamers: Wait I have to play against other good players? This game is trash.


      @WhosImmortal That might be how you feel but most of the streams I watch complain about its all try hards and sweaties. They want it to be casual. I do agree with you on what should be prioritized.

    • WhosImmortal

      not why people are complaining about SBMM lol We want connections to be prioritized.

  • EchoSixSix

    Only try hards don’t like SBMM. Everyone else who doesn’t get to play 12 hours a day likes it. If you’re sweat you play with sweats. If you want a game to play and “relax” play something else not a competitive shooter

  • Kevin Hodgson
    Kevin Hodgson

    Gotta say, it's good to see the Treyarch devs actually addressing community concerns. After the past year of hearing barely anything from the devs with MW outside of a handful of major issues, this is really nice to see and hope they keep this going throughout the next year.

  • Teletubby Po
    Teletubby Po

    SBMM definitely was in older cods but just not noticeable. I remember on mw2 I play on Xbox and my kd is over 3 and I would still dominate lobbies. I was at my cousins one day on ps3 which has like a 0.5kd and played on his accounts and I swear I was dropping nukes like uavs

  • C Block
    C Block

    SBMM is not what has plagued Warzone. HACKERS are the plague. Not having SBMM is just people wanting to shit on less skilled players. How do you get better playing against less skilled players?

    • WhosImmortal

      Not having SBMM is people wanting connection to be prioritized. You do realize no SBMM are entirely random, right? People will still play plenty of sweats lmao

  • Adrian Bland
    Adrian Bland

    • Steve Wolgamot Jr.
      Steve Wolgamot Jr.

      @WhosImmortal I get that for sure bro but man there are sooo many variables in the SBMM. Maybe they should be transparent on what they are using? You seem to talk about what was found in the code updates (see i watch you ALOT :p ) is the SBMM viewable in the code?

    • WhosImmortal

      @Steve Wolgamot Jr. When Skill is prioritized over connection for matchmaking, connection suffers lol

    • Steve Wolgamot Jr.
      Steve Wolgamot Jr.

      WhosImmortal your comment makes no sense. Show me where connectivity is being used in the algorithm for SBMM.

    • WhosImmortal

      so because people are better, their connection should suffer?

    SOME GAMES FELT REALY EASY SOME GAMES FELT REALLY SWEATY Its because it isnt JUST skill based matchmaking but its ALSO EOMM. Engagement based matchmaking. They want to toss you wins then make you lose some to keep you playing to chase after the high.

  • xL3gendx

    MW was the first game that I quit because it was no fun anymore. And it was ONLY because of skill based matchmaking. What i think of skill based matchmaking is that its not Skill for 95% of the Players, what I mean with that is that 5% of the players are ACTUALLY good and the other 95% are campers

    Does sbmm even matter with a dog shit cod game?? Boy was I fooled into thinking this game had anything to do with black ops. Already paid 100$ for this shit pile and the only thing I’m looking forward to is playing zombies. Ridiculous cash grab just like advanced warfare. 🤢🤮

  • mT

    Yeah sbmm was insane in cold war, highest kd on my team was 1.53, their top 3 best were 2.1 3.5 4.9 We had no chance
