What Should You Expect In Black Ops Cold War Season 2?

Activision has revealed what players can expect in Black Ops Cold War Season 2 from multiplayer to zombies to even Warzone.

New Operators

Black Ops Cold War

  • Naga (Launch Week)
    • Part of the Warsaw faction.
    • “Born in Laos and raised through decades of conflict, Kapano ‘Naga’ Vang is a former warlord who grew rich trafficking drugs and weapons through the notorious Golden Triangle. Feared by his men because of his temper and brutality, he was a prime candidate for recruitment by Perseus.”
    • “Following the orders of this threat to the free world, Naga uses his established supply lines to move WMDs around the globe, and personally delivers vengeance to those who dare to stop or intercept his contraband.”
  • Samantha Maxis (In-Season)
    • Part of the NATO faction.
    • “For the first time in Black Ops history, Samantha Maxis will be a playable Operator – and not just in Zombies. Following her rescue from the Omega Group at ‘Firebase Z,’ Maxis prepares to join Requiem on the frontlines to fend off outbreaks throughout the Ural Mountains.”
    • “Of course, she’s also not afraid to join NATO’s fight against the Warsaw Pact in Multiplayer, or drop into Verdansk and Rebirth Island in Warzone.”
  • Wolf (In-Season)
    • Part of the NATO faction.
    • “Putting together the team for Adler’s rescue mission, Woods knew he would need the best Jungle Warfare Operators available. Terrell Wolf learned to hunt in the bayous of Louisiana surrounding his grandparent’s home.”
    • “Entering service on his 18th birthday in memory of his fallen brother, he now stalks more dangerous prey as an elite Delta Force sniper.”
  • Rivas (In-Season)
    • Part of the NATO faction.
    • “The other Operator joining Woods in the search for Adler, Karla Rivas grew up in Nicaragua surrounded by the Menendez Cartel and their wars with rival gangs.”
    • “Her firsthand experience of the deadly consequences they had on their surrounding communities drove Rivas to dedicate her life to ridding her country of the Cartel’s influence, using guerrilla tactics to weaken them by any means necessary.”

New Weapons

Black Ops Cold War

  • FARA 83 (Assault Rifle) (Launch Week)
    • Available at Tier 15 of the Season 2 battle pass.
  • LC10 (SMG) (Launch Week)
    • Available at Tier 31 of the Season 2 battle pass.
  • Machete (Special) (In-Season)
    • Can obtain by completing a specific challenge or by purchasing a bundle with a Blueprint version of the weapon.
  • E-Tool Shovel (Melee) (In-Season)
    • Can obtain by completing a specific challenge or by purchasing a bundle with a Blueprint version of the weapon.
  • R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow (Special) (In-Season)

Four New Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer Maps

Black Ops Cold War

  • Apocalypse (6v6) (Launch Week)
    • “Welcome to the Lao jungle cartel base in the heart of the Golden Triangle: Apocalypse. As Perseus forces are rumored to be hiding key intel in their stronghold in Laos, the CIA’s finest approach the village ready to extract any evidence they can on the Nova 6 supply line… and Adler’s whereabouts.”
    • “This small-to-medium sized map is built for aggressive Operators, funneling action under stilted buildings and through the temple fortress. Give chase to the enemy through the buildings and temple, making sure not to be too distracted from the glint of gold being loaded into the trucks on the main road.”
  • Golova (Multi-Team) (In-Season)
    • “Golova appears to be a traditional Russian village located within the picturesque Ural Plains, but beneath its surface, it holds a dark secret embedded by its designer and creator, Nikita Dragovich.”
    • “A testing ground for the expansion of the Numbers Program, Golova features plenty of close-quarter combat opportunities throughout the town, from a massive church to its rows of houses and industrial park. The stair-stepped terrain on which the town was built still provides some long-range firefight opportunities but encourages tighter, CQB play around its objective areas.”
  • Mansion (2v2 and 3v3) (In-Season)
    • “Set in Havana, Cuba at the Hefe Mansion (last seen in the Campaign’s “End of the Line” mission), this small map takes place across both courtyards: an eastern one with two palm trees and a gazebo, and a western one with a statue sitting atop a non-functional fountain. These open courtyards contrast to a center wrapped room with a small side hallway and an exposed balcony that can serve as a risky power position.”
    • “Expect action to be head-on and frenetic, especially when the overtime zone comes into play at the dead center of the main hall.”
  • Miami Strike (6v6) (In-Season)
    • “With the sun glistening off the colorful murals of Miami’s South Beach neighborhood, Miami Strike will focus the action into a smaller daytime rendition of the original map. Whether it’s a white-knuckle game of TDM or a tense Hardpoint battle, the heat is always on in the streets of Miami.”

New Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer Modes And Warzone Modes

  • Gun Game (Free-For-All) (Launch Week)
    • “The fan-favorite party game mode is back in Black Ops Cold War! In this Free-for-All mode, Operators are tested on their gunfighting proficiency with no Custom Loadouts, Perks, Equipment, Field Upgrades, or Scorestreaks.”
    • “Instead, each Operator must progress through a pre-determined set of 20 weapons, starting with a pistol and ending with the Knife. Operators can sabotage their enemies by either eliminating them with a melee attack or Finishing Move, which will set them back one level in their weapon set. The first player to kill an enemy with each weapon wins the match.”
  • Stockpile (6v6) (In-Season)
    • “Stockpile mixes Kill Confirmed and Hardpoint together for a fast-paced, slay-heavy objective game mode. In Stockpile, Operators must eliminate enemies and collect their dog tags. But unlike Kill Confirmed, these dog tags won’t count towards their teams score until they are stockpiled at deposit sites that rotate around the map throughout the match.​”
    • “Operators can carry multiple dog tags at a time and attempt to deposit them for a massive boost in score and XP, but if they’re killed, all of their dog tags will scatter for anyone to pick up. The first team to collect and deposit a set number of dog tags wins the match.”
  • Hardpoint (Multi-Team) (In-Season)
    • “Get the squad together and prepare for the biggest version of Hardpoint ever created in Call of Duty.”
    • “Taking place across the largest maps in Black Ops Cold War, this hectic new squad-based Hardpoint mode tasks 10 squads of four with capturing and defending Hardpoint hills around the map that rotate every 120 seconds. The first squad to reach 500 seconds of total objective time wins the match.”

Black Ops Cold War

  • Exfiltration (Warzone) (In-Season)
    • “It’s about time that the exfil chopper arrives before the Circle Collapse fully closes in. During an Exfiltration Battle Royale, a portable radio crackles into life, coming online somewhere in Verdansk. The Operator who secures this radio and holds onto it for a sufficient period of time automatically wins the game for them (or their squad, in non-Solo modes).”
    • “To ensure their exfil isn’t by the book, anyone holding the radio is marked on the Tac Map as if they were under a Most Wanted Contract (also known as an HVT or High Value Target) with all Operators also receiving intel on how much longer the current radio holder has until they win.”
    • “Other than this new win condition, the same Battle Royale rules apply. Expect a circle collapse and a winner to be determined by last Operator or squad standing, should nobody receive an early exfil with the radio.”
  • Rebirth Island Resurgence Extreme (Warzone) (In-Season)
    • “The high-octane, respawn-enabled Resurgence mode on Rebirth Island will be taken to the extreme during Season Two, upping the max player count in the limited-time Rebirth Island Resurgence Extreme mode.”
    • “Up to 90 players can drop onto Rebirth Island for an incredibly frenetic fight for supremacy, as they look to eliminate every last member of enemy squads to prevent them from getting a second, third, or even forth chance at revenge.”
    • “Just like Resurgence, squad members can spawn back in if their Rebirth Countdown hits zero and at least one of their allies is still alive, and specific Caches around the map will refresh their items frequently to ensure there is no shortage of firepower around the island.”

Outbreak And Other Black Ops Cold War Zombies Content

  • New Outbreak Mode (Launch Week)
    • Details Can Be Found Here.
  • Frenzied Guard (Field Upgrade)
    • “Upon activation, all enemies will immediately target the Frenzied Guard user for a brief period, during which time only Armor will take damage. This can be a game-changer when fellow Operators are surrounded by the undead masses, as they will turn their attention away from those in peril and towards the armored savior.”
  • Shatter Blast (Ammo Mod)
    • “Makes all bullets deal explosive damage. Each bullet also has a chance to explode dealing additional explosive damage and destroying any impacted armor.”
  • New Skill Tiers
    • Players can upgrade all skills to Tier IV and Tier V. To do this, players will acquire Refined and Flawless Aetherium Crystals.
    • You can obtain those Aetherium Crystals by completing several investigations during a match of Outbreak or by getting to higher-rounds in the traditional zombies mode.

Prestige Levels Across Black Ops Cold War, Modern Warfare, And Warzone

“Just like at the start of Season One, your Season Level will reset to 1 at the beginning of Season Two, and your progress will resume from the highest Prestige Level you achieved previously. This season offers four additional Prestiges to achieve across the first 200 levels, as well as a new Weapon Blueprint, as follows:”
