Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War And Warzone Season 5 Reloaded Reveals New Map, Modes, Weapons, And More

Black Ops Cold War

As far as reg­u­lar mul­ti­play­er goes, Black Ops Cold War is only get­ting one new map when Sea­son 5 Reloaded drops, and it’s tech­ni­cal­ly not new. Zoo will be remak­ing an appear­ance, which a DLC map from the orig­i­nal Black Ops title. Objec­tive game mode Demo­li­tion will also be head­ing to Black Ops Cold War dur­ing this update.

Zombies

Zom­bies will be get­ting a new loca­tion for Out­break, Arma­da, as well as a new world event called Black Chest. There is also a new fea­ture called the Ram­page Induc­er, and a new Out­break mode called Sur­vival (arriv­ing after launch).

Appear­ing as an orange Essence can­is­ter in the start­ing area, the Ram­page Induc­er will tem­porar­i­ly ramp up the dif­fi­cul­ty to Cranked-lev­el pro­por­tions if all mem­bers of a squad agree to take on the chal­lenge,” Activi­sion stat­ed. “Once acti­vat­ed, this can­is­ter will speed up zom­bie spawn rates and cause all zom­bies to sprint end­less­ly until Round 20, turn­ing up the action until the sec­ond major round mile­stone is reached… or a total squad wipe long before then.”

Warzone

On the bat­tle royale side of things, War­zone play­ers can expect new playlists for large-scale 50v50 Team Death­match mode Clash and Iron Tri­als, the lat­er of which will be released some­time after Sep­tem­ber 9th. Activi­sion stat­ed Iron Tri­als is meant for the high­est-skilled play­ers, and is what they’re call­ing the “tough­est bat­tle royale mode” ever in Warzone.

Base health and health regen­er­a­tion rate are increased in Iron Tri­als.  “This is set to affect the feel of com­bat, time to kill, weapon, Perk, and Equip­ment via­bil­i­ty as the entire game is effec­tive­ly altered,” as men­tioned by Activision.

There are no load­out drops, so every­one needs to buy their weapons–with the prices for every­thing also going up. The Gulag is open in Iron Tri­als, but it’s also seen a change, now focus­ing more on skill. “No akim­bo. No semi-auto or ful­ly-auto shot­guns. Almost no tac­ti­cal equip­ment. The only thing stand­ing between you and rede­ploy­ment is the agili­ty of your trig­ger fin­ger,” Activi­sion said.

There will also be addi­tion­al changes to envi­ron­men­tal ele­ments” and oth­er “import aspects” through­out Ver­dan­sk. Though Activi­sion won’t be announc­ing those specifics until lat­er. Those who win in Iron Tri­als will get an exclu­sive Call­ing Card.

New Weapons and Operators
