Black Ops Cold War Season 2: Players Find A Way To Access Outbreak Early

Some players have discovered a way to access Black Ops Cold War’s Outbreak mode ahead of its Season 2 launch.

Via Eurogamer, users can download the Season 2 update for Black Ops Cold War and go offline. From there, users can hop on Black Ops Cold War and create an offline private Outbreak match. You can play Outbreak on the following maps:

  • Alpine
  • Ruka
  • Golova

Over on Reddit, you can find several clips of gameplay from users who decided to try the mode out early.

In Outbreak, players can freely explore, loot, and complete objectives throughout these large-scale maps to earn rewards.

After completing a primary objective, you can either attempt to exfil or test your luck by pushing ahead to another main objective.

If you go with the latter option, you will only continue to encounter difficult enemies. However, completing these primary objectives and exfiltrating from the map will net players with XP rewards and Aetherium Crystals.

Here is every type of Aetherium Crystal you can earn in Outbreak and what they can be used for:

  • Raw Aetherium Crystals
    • This is the standard Aetherium Crystal type that has been used in Black Ops Cold War zombies so far.
    • Can be used to upgrade skills to Tier III.
  • Refined Aetherium Crystals
    • Can be used to upgrade skills to Tier IV.
  • Flawless Aetherium Crystals
    • Can be used to upgrade skills to Tier V.

Season 2 content for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone is expected to go live at 12 AM ET on February 25th.
