Black Ops Cold War Will Take Advantage of PlayStation 5’s Haptic Triggers

Plenty of folks have been talking up PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller. With launch nearly here, we’re learning more third-party games are taking advantage of the controller’s features, including Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War.

GameSpot recently chatted with Cold War Lead Game Designer Tony Flame, who revealed every weapon in Cold War has a custom haptics profile. Here’s Flame talking about it:

The DualSense controller is pretty awesome. It’s got new haptic feedback so when you’re pulling the trigger, it’s shaking, every time a gun fires there is a little motor in there that’s firing every time. There is sensitivity on the trigger that represents the trigger pressure on a real weapon. All of that has been tuned in the game for each individual weapon. So it’s quite a lot to take in, but it’s pretty awesome, and it gives the guns a feeling like they’ve never had before.

The haptic triggers also kick in when aiming. PlayStation jumped on Twitter to explain that heavy weapons feel heavier when you aim. 

I didn’t think a controller would be one of the more exciting things about next-gen, but it sounds pretty damn cool. We’re only a couple of days from feeling it in action. 

Black Ops Cold War hits consoles and PC on November 13. It comes back with all the usual modes from a Treyarch Call of Duty. As for Warzone? We know the two games are coming together when the first season launches in December
