The mid-season update has finally arrived, and there is a bit of new content for both Call of Duty: Warzone and Black Ops Cold War. Warzone has received new points of interest on the map and new modes.
Points of Interest
Nakatomi Plaza from Die Hard is being added as a new point of interest in Verdansk ’84. The plaza has replaced the broadcast tower and will now be the tallest structure on the map. The playable area of the plaza consists of five floors, and Activision noted that the spaces are modeled after the Die Hard movie.
This new plaza also includes new missions that you can complete during battle royale and Plunder to earn rewards. These missions include doing thing that McClane would, like scavenging for resources, defusing C4, and stopping an arms deal. Activision also teased that Nakatomi Plaza’s famous vault can also be found in Warzone too. Players can break into it to steal its riches, but others will be looking to seek out this treasure, so beware.
Another point of interest is Survival Camps, which is nodding to Rambo: First Blood Part II. There are 10 camps across Verdansk ’84 and each contains “solid loadout items” that players can grab. Those who can collect enough with get an even “greater reward.”
The last new point of interest is the CIA Outpost. One of the aircraft hangers on the northwest sector of Verdansk has been converted into a CIA Outpost.
“Apparently, these field operatives are also searching for any identification of fallen soldiers and may bring in some air reinforcements should enough of them be collected for extraction,” Activision said. “Maybe this can be used to stage an ambush that only a true guerilla warfare expert could handle…”
New Power Grab Mode
One of the new modes in Warzone is called Power Grab. This mode is made for 100-plus players, Power Grab features a starting circle that is smaller than normal. On top of that, there is no Gulag. Instead, players can revive teammates from the buy station or by collecting dog tags similar to how it works in Kill Confirmed. The dog tags can also be obtained by completing Contracts, but can also show up in supply boxes.
For every dog tag collected, you’ll move up on the reward ladder and this is displayed on the HUD. The ladder includes a UAV, a respawn token, and advanced gas mask, and specialist bonuses as you progress through the ladder. The end goal of Power Grab is still the same though.
New Combat Bow Killstreak
Rambo’s Combat Bow has come to Warzone in the Season 3 Reloaded update. It can deal damage to both players and vehicles. It fires further the longer you pull it back.
Although this weapon has already been introduced into Black Ops Cold War for quite some time, it has now made its way to Warzone.
’80s Action Heroes Event
This event is similar to the Hunt for Adler event, but celebrates the debut of Rambo and McClane coming to Call of Duty. Players must complete challenges across either Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. There are nine Cold War objectives, and once completed you’ll get a semi-automatic tactical rifle. Those who finish all nine Warzone challenges will get a bolt-action sniper rifle blueprint.
