It’s a new week, and that means Activision is updating Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone again with new playlists, store bundles and more. The company ran down all the important notes in a blog post – including a little tease for season 3 – and we round out all the key points here so you can catch up quickly.
Blueprint Gun Game
A new version of fan-favorite Gun Game mode is out this week in Black Ops Cold War, starting Thursday, April 15th. Called the Blueprint Gun Game, this twist on mode changes weapon progression from battle to battle. As usual, the game wins the first to pass all 20 weapons.
As season 2 ends somewhat soon (more on that later), Activision is offering what it calls a triple-double XP weekend beginning this Friday 1
Season 3 approaches
Activision teased that season 3 is “about to fall.” The publisher said players should be looking for a tease related to the new season. The note specifically said, “a tease of what’s to come in Black Ops Cold War from Treyarch …”
It’s curious as Warzone is not mentioned. It is rumored that Warzone’s card, Verdansk, will be blown up to solve the zombie problem and reset the game with a new 80’s card with Black Ops Cold War. It’s still possible, but the wording of this post only mentions Black Ops Cold War and developer Treyarch; Raven Software is the main developer of Warzone.
New store bundles
Players wishing to pick up new DLC this week can grab the Corpse Collector package, which comes with new items for one of the game’s operators, Beck. This comes with a new skin, “Carnage”, as well as “Ultimate Hunter” weapon plan and “Plague Hound” finishing movement. There is also a new melee weapon “Doom Hammer”, “Skull Vertebrae” weapon charm and the “Inspired by Death” sticker. Also included are the “Gentle Push” phone card and the “Doom Slayer” emblem.
Another new package is the Stitch Sentinel package, which comes with a total of nine items. This includes “Overrun” SMG drawing and “Cottontail” sniper rifle blueprint. It also comes with a seamstress skin, an animated calling card, an animated emblem, “Rearranged Thoughts” finish, “Carbon Oni” charm and “Oni” body.
These bundles are available for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
It’s not just Black Ops Cold War and Warzone that will soon get a major Season 3 update. Call of Duty: Mobile will soon be adding season 3 content as well, including a new gun and map.
