A SBMM Cold War tracker is tool that many in the Call of Duty community want for a large variety of reasons.

Being that only offering skill-based matchmaking in itself is a hot topic in the gaming world at the moment, it makes sense that there are those who are curious about where they rank. Here are some tools available for those in the community curious about stats in Call of Duty.

SBMM Cold War Tracker: What is it?

Skill-based matchmaking (SBMM) in Call of Duty is the algorithm by which the system places you in matches against other players of similar skill in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.

Although the official Call of Duty website has its own stats tracker that documents players' performances over their last 20 matches, it is quite limited and harmless as it doesn't reveal much in relation to SBMM. While you are able to see your own stats such as K/D ratio, accuracy and shots landed, there aren't any details about the other players who were in the lobby.

SBMM tracking can be pretty powerful, as well-documented by third-party tools in Warzone.

While SBMM Warzone allows players to see the skill bracket of the games they recently appeared in, Warzone Companion enabled players to see the general K/D ratio of the lobby pre-game before it was patched due to complaints from the community about how it would negatively affect the integrity of tournaments.

While there isn't an SBMM tracker in Black Ops Cold War just yet, don't surprised to hear about one being in the works by a third-party developer soon.
