A new Zombies experience arrives Feb. 4th, 3v3 Gunfight Snipers Only returns, and Call of Duty League Kickoff Classic sets the stage this week.
Zombies is about to get a whole lot crazier with a new “Firebase Z” map in Black Ops Cold War on February 4. The brand-new experience builds upon the Dark Aether lore and promises to be jam-packed with new enemies, game mechanics, Easter eggs, and of course, an insane new Wonder Weapon.
There’s also a fan-favorite Gunfight playlist making its return, plus a couple of new bundles that are sure to strike fear in your opponents. Plus, the Call of Duty League is set to launch the 2021 season after the Kickoff Classic from this weekend set the stage for tournament matchups.
Here’s your intel briefing for Call of Duty this week:
The Lead: New “Firebase Z” Map in Black Ops Cold War Zombies Coming Soon
Get ready for the next chapter in the Dark Aether story.
The next Black Ops Cold War Zombies map, “Firebase Z,” will arrive February 4th and will be free for all players.
With the destruction of the World War II-era “Projekt Endstation” site after investigating the Dark Aether anomaly in Poland, Grigori Weaver and his Requiem agents now set their targets on the latest outbreak site in Vietnam, code-named “Firebase Z.” Once there, Requiem agents will race against time to rescue Samantha Maxis and exfil from Outpost 25 before it’s too late.
With the new map set to launch next week, keep an eye on Treyarch’s social channels for the latest intel on this all-new Zombies experience.
3v3 Gunfight Snipers Only Returns!
Coming January 28, the popular 3v3 Gunfight playlist returns in Black Ops Cold War. 3v3 Gunfight Snipers Only is exactly what it sounds like: Two teams of three face off with randomized sniper loadouts, and the first team to take six rounds wins the match. Maps include Game Show, ICBM, KGB, and U-Bahn.
And don’t forget, all the fan-favorite playlists like Nuketown 24/7, Face Off, Prop Hunt, and more continue throughout the season!
What’s in Store for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone This Week
Two deadly bundles, each with their own unique themes, will be available this week.
