Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s create-a-class system has some interesting changes from the previous games, so it’s important to get familiar with it before hopping into multiplayer matches.

This year, Treyarch added Field Upgrades and they’re a key addition.

In Black Ops Cold War, Field Upgrades are rechargeable equipment that can be extremely helpful when used in a timely and effective manner.

A Trophy System, for example, can be deployed on a Hardpoint to prevent enemies from throwing grenades at it. A Field Mic, on the other hand, can be placed near an objective to show when enemies are approaching

Here’s every Field Upgrade in the game at launch.
