Cold-Blooded shortens the duration of position-tracking effects inflicted on the wearer.
Cold-Blooded is rather versatile, as any weapon or play style can benefit from not being tracked. However, it reaches its full potential when used with a stealthy and mobile weapon, such as the Carbon Roller or Octobrush as it can enhance the sneakiness of a weapon, facilitating ambushes. A loud or otherwise conspicuous weapon may give itself away to surrounding enemies, no tracking needed.
Cold Blooded shortens the duration of position-tracking by 50% of the normal tracking time.

In version 4.3.0, Cold-Blooded was retired, and its effects got combined with Bomb Defense Up to make a new ability: Bomb Defense Up DX. The default ability of all gear with Cold-Blooded (except the Gray FA-11 Bomber, Pearlescent Crown and Fringed Loafers) was changed to Main Power Up, while existing gear with the Cold-Blooded ability was overwritten with Bomb Defense Up DX.
