While the full details of the Skill Based Matchmaking in Black Ops Cold War has never been revealed, just as was the case in Modern Warfare, it’s well known that the new game uses the feature in multiplayer modes. If you’re looking for easier matches to rank up quickly, here’s everything you need to know about how to reverse boost in Black Ops Cold War.
How Skill Based Matchmaking works is it puts you into lobbies with players who are close to your skill level. No one knows exactly how skill is calculated, but it’s likely something to do with kill/death ratio or score per minute. Therefore, the more you win and get kills, the more likely you are to be matched against tough players in future rounds.
The idea of reverse boost is to try and get easier matches by gaming the system a little.
How to Reverse Boost in CoD Black Ops Cold War
What you need to do is purposefully do poorly in a few matches in a row. You’ll have to rely on having no teammates to carry you to victories, so it’s not as easy as it in the likes of Warzone.
After a few matches of dying a lot and losing, you should notice that the next few games are a little easier, as your skill level makes its way back up again.
For however many games you do poorly in, you’ll only have around the same number of games of playing properly with lesser opponents before you’ll have to reverse boost again.
It’s not a sure-fire way of getting easier opponents in Black Ops Cold War, but it’s the only option you have currently.
