Activi­sion has unveiled the Call of Duty Sea­son 6 roadmap for both Black Ops Cold War and War­zone. Play­ers can expect plen­ty of new con­tent for Cold War’s final sea­son before Call of Duty: Van­guard’s launch. Sea­son 6 will arrive in just a mat­ter of days, on Octo­ber 7th and includes more mul­ti­play­er maps, a new Zom­bie expe­ri­ence, and dras­tic War­zone adjustments.

The Haunting Seasonal Event

The Haunt­ing, which is list­ed as Call of Duty’s sea­son­al Hal­loween cel­e­bra­tion for both Black Ops Cold War and War­zone, is set to arrive on Octo­ber 19th. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, no fur­ther details were giv­en about the event–but more infor­ma­tion will arrive on Octo­ber 18th.

There will be three new maps at the launch of Sea­son 6 for Black Ops Cold War:

  • Depro­gram — stan­dard 6v6 map, that includes Red Doors which allow play­ers to quick­ly tra­verse the map. The map is set inside Adler’s brain­washed head.
  • Ameri­ka — anoth­er stan­dard 6v6 map that’s themed around Burg­er Town.
  • Gluboko — a 2v2 and 3v3 Gun­fight map set in an under­ground vault at the KGB headquarters.

Sea­son 6 will, of course, include new weapons and an oper­a­tor with the Sea­son 6 bat­tle pass. The orig­i­nal Black Ops pro­tag­o­nist, Alex Mason, will be the fea­tured oper­a­tor giv­en with the bat­tle pass.

Five new weapons arrive with the sea­son. A lever-action shot­gun and an assault rifle can be earned as part of the free tiers of the bat­tle pass. Anoth­er new melee weapon can be unlocked via an in-game chal­lenge. Lat­er on in the sea­son, chal­lenges will open up for a new sub­ma­chine gun and a set of dual-wield melee weapons.

Zombies

Sea­son 6 brings the end to the Black Ops Cold War sto­ry­line for Zom­bies, with the For­sak­en map set to arrive at the begin­ning of the sea­son. For­sak­en is the stan­dard round-based map, and it includes the final show­down between Requiem and the Omega Group. 

Black Ops 4’s PhD Slid­er perk is mak­ing an appear­ance again, allow­ing play­ers to slide into zom­bies to trig­ger an explo­sive effect. The size and dam­age increas­es the far­ther a play­er slides before impact. PhD Slid­er can also be upgrad­ed with fea­tures like full immu­ni­ty to self-inflict­ed explo­sive dam­age, the abil­i­ty to trig­ger an explo­sion after falling a dis­tance, and more.

There is also a new Won­der Weapon with the For­sak­en map. The Chyr­salax is a crys­tal­lized Dark Aether axe that can be found dur­ing when doing For­sak­en’s quest, com­plet­ing Tri­als, or by get­ting lucky at the Mys­tery Box.

Zom­bies will also be get­ting two new sup­port weapons: the ACR-XD and Hand Cannon.

The ACR-XD looks sim­i­lar to the mul­ti­play RC-XD, but this ver­sion is a Zom­bies spe­cif­ic weapon. Instead of being a tiny wheeled explo­sive, it’s fit­ted with Aetheri­um Crystal–which acts like a decoy. The sound it emits draws zom­bies to it, then con­tin­u­ous­ly puls­es a small blast that will kill nor­mal enemies.

Warzone Map Adjustments

As revealed in the Sea­son 6 intro trail­er, sev­er­al under­ground explo­sions will change Ver­dan­sk. Play­ers can expect new points of inter­est as sev­er­al fis­sures have opened up in the ground, expos­ing WWII-era bunkers to explore.

These areas will tie into Van­guard’s inte­gra­tion next month, as the post states, “Their mys­te­ri­ous nature hints at what will come fol­low­ing Vanguard’s launch…”

War­zone’s orig­i­nal show­ers Gulag is also mak­ing a come­back in Sea­son 6, replac­ing the Rush-themed Gulag. How­ev­er, the post sug­gests some adjust­ments have been made to how the map is laid out

Regiment Changes

As part of the Sea­son 6 update for War­zone, the Reg­i­ments fea­ture will be locked. Activi­sion stat­ed this is to pre­pare for the tran­si­tion to a new Clan system.

After Octo­ber 8th, play­ers will only be able to view their Reg­i­ment Ros­ter and inspect play­ers. No one will be able to cre­ate, man­age, switch, or invite peo­ple to a Reg­i­ment, use Reg­i­ment Tags, or receive Hap­py Hour rewards after the 8th. Play­ers should also be aware that they have until Octo­ber 5th to ensure they are “active” in the one Reg­i­ment they wish to stay in through Van­guard’s launch on Novem­ber 5th. It’s look­ing like Van­guard will only allow play­ers to be in one Clan at a time.
