Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Warzone Season Six Now Live

Summary

  • Season Six launches with new Multiplayer, Zombies, and Warzone content, including Forsaken, the final chapter in the Cold War Dark Aether storyline.
  • Complete the Verdansk ’84 storyline in Warzone as you navigate a leveled Stadium and Downtown following a major attack.
  • Duke it out in three new Multiplayer maps: Amerika, Gluboko, and Deprogram, the latter of which offers a new and surreal 6v6 experience representing Adler’s fractured memories.

In the ongoing battle against Perseus, one man’s fate is irrevocably changed: Russell Adler. After being captured and interrogated by his longtime adversary Stitch, followed by the mind-altering Numbers broadcast, he finally seems to have broken down. Now Adler is AWOL, and the final showdown begins.

Season Six of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone is available now for the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. Read on for the latest.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

Stadium and Downtown Leveled in Verdansk

The final showdown approaches, and we need all Operators in the area ASAP. Adler’s gone AWOL, and seismic devices near old WWII-era bunkers have triggered a massive explosion downtown.

The Old Verdansk Stadium has collapsed, opening new lines of sight and greater maneuverability in the rubble. Downtown has also been hit, its buildings toppling into the fissure. Snipers will need to compete over the remaining perches, and both areas should be explored to the fullest.

New Points of Interest and a New Gulag

Get a peek at what’s coming to Warzone in Call of Duty: Vanguard by descending into the World War II–era bunkers now revealed on the map. What could possibly be hidden within?

If you’re eliminated while exploring the bunkers and downtown destruction, you’ll have to fight it out in a new Gulag, inspired by the original 1v1 map in Verdansk 2019. Taking place deep in the Zordaya Prison Complex, expect some twists to the original layout.

Five New Weapons

Prepare for battle with five new Season Six weapons:

  • .410 Ironhide (Launch Week) — This hard-hitting, lever-action Shotgun inflicts high damage at close range with an improved rate of fire. Get it at Tier 15 of the Season Six Battle Pass.
  • Grav (Launch Week) — A full-auto, fast-firing Israeli Assault Rifle sporting the fastest bullet velocity in its class with modest damage and moderate recoil. Unlock it at Tier 31 of the Season Six Battle Pass.

Unlock three more weapons — the dual-wield Hammer and Sickle, the two-handed Battle Axe, and the LAPA SMG — by completing in-game challenges or by purchasing their corresponding bundles in the Store when they arrive later in the Season.

Three New Multiplayer Maps

  • Deprogram (6v6, Launch): Battle in one of Call of Duty’s most unique 6v6 Multiplayer maps as you travel through fragments of Adler’s memories as he’s being interrogated and deprogrammed. Use the Red Doors to travel between memories while gaining the advantage over your enemies.
  • Amerika (6v6, Launch): Enter a Soviet imagining of the American Main Street based on the Campaign mission “Redlight, Greenlight.” This military facility in the heart of the U.S.S.R. features a pizza shop, a theater, and a prop Burger Town.
  • Gluboko (2v2/3v3, Launch): Deploy to the underbelly of the KGB headquarters in a vault featuring tight-knit, fast-paced engagements in and around the main briefing table.

Complete the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies in Forsaken

In “Mauer der Toten,” Requiem’s elite strike team just barely escaped Omega Group’s clutches in Berlin thanks to Samantha Maxis and her new Dark Aether powers. This time, in the final round-based Zombies map for Black Ops Cold War, the Requiem agents are heading straight to the heart of Omega Group’s secret Spetsnaz Training Facility located in the U.S.S.R.

With the Forsaken now set loose, and rumors of a Project Janus circulating Requiem, there’s no telling what you’ll encounter in the final chapter. Whatever it is, our agents will have to put their lives on the line if they hope to end Omega Group once and for all.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

New Zombies Perk, Wonder Weapon, Support Weapons

Hot on the heels of the series-favorite PhD Flopper Perk comes the new and enhanced PhD Slider. Consume this gnarly beverage to trigger an explosion when sliding into enemies, with the size and damage of the explosion increasing the farther you slide before impact. Spend Aetherium Crystals to upgrade it even more, gaining immunity to self-inflicted explosive damage and triggering blasts when you hit the ground from up high.

Mow down the horde with the new Chrysalax Wonder Weapon within Forsaken’s main Easter Egg. Much like what lies beneath Forsaken, there is more to this Wonder Weapon than meets the eye. And when you still don’t have quite enough firepower, hit up the Crafting Table to purchase the new hard-hitting Hand Cannon and ARC-XD Support weapons.

The Haunting, Coming Soon

Halloween is just around the corner, and horror movie buffs should be especially excited for the Halloween Event spectacular starting October 19. Stay tuned for more info.

New Battle Pass, Operators, and More

Season Six brings all this and more with a new Battle Pass, two new playable Operators — Black Ops protagonist Alex Mason and Warsaw Pact Operator Fuze — new Prestige levels, new Season Challenges in Multiplayer and Zombies, and more.
