Reloaded Season Three arrives in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone on May 20 on PlayStation, and there’s a lot to look forward to. Let’s get straight to the point.
80s Action Heroes Event
The ’80s Action Heroes event kicks off Season Three reloaded with limited-time bundles, game modes, and event-specific rewards, in addition to weapons, maps, and other features already expected during this season.
And two iconic ’80s action heroes are rocking the party.
John McClane (launch)
“Welcome to the party, mate!”
Get John McClane in the Die Hard bundle in the Black Ops Cold War and Warzone store from May 19 through June 18, including the Legendary Operator; a coup de grace; three blueprints of legendary weapons – a tactical rifle, two SMGs and an assault rifle; a legendary business card and emblem; an epic watch and charm.
John Rambo (second week)
“To survive a war, you must become a war.”
Find the Rambo Pack in the Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Store from May 19 to June 18. This pack includes the legendary operator; two finishing moves, including one using his iconic bow and arrow; three blueprints of legendary weapons – an assault rifle, an LMG and a knife blueprint; a legendary business card and emblem; and an epic watch and charm.
Note: Rambo and John McClane are brand new Call of Duty Operators; these are not skins for previously released operators.
New POIs and Limited Time Mode in Warzone
Explore Die Hard’s massive Nakatomi Plaza, including optional missions that can be completed for in-game rewards. Dare you attempt to break into the vault?
Many campsites around Verdansk have been converted into survival camps in tribute to Rambo: First Blood Part II. Collect all eight locations for cargo items and ID tags, which can be spent at the new CIA outpost northwest of Verdansk.
Be the action hero in Power Grab (launch)
In Power Grab, over 100 Operators are dropped into Verdansk with a smaller circle collapse and five stages progressing faster than usual, and no gulag to fight their way to death.
Revive your teammates through the Buy Station or earn the right to revive them by collecting Dog Tags, which are dropped by Operators when eliminated and can also be found as rewards for completing Contracts, and in rare cases, in supply boxes.
Each Dog Tag collected takes you up a notch on a reward ladder: earn a drone, respawn token, advanced gas masks, and specialist bonuses.
The combat bow and the loot on the ground
Straight out of Black Ops Cold War, the combat arc adds an explosive punch to any loadout while in Verdansk or Rebirth Island. Find it and other limited-time action movie weapons in the Warzone Ground Item Stash update.
New multiplayer maps and game modes
Standoff (6v6, launch)
First introduced in Black Ops II, Standoff is a mid-sized 6v6 map that features a timeless three-lane feel and offers plenty of opportunities to outsmart your opponents.
Duga (Multi-Team, Launch)
Welcome to Duga, another region of the Ural Mountains ready for multi-team multiplayer modes after spending some time in Outbreak. Duga offers something for every style of play, whether you’re battling through the central administrative offices, the bus depot, the chemical processing plant, or the massive tower.
Die Hardpoint (launch)
Fight against the clock in an accelerated version of Hardpoint called Die Hardpoint. Work alongside your team to capture difficult points and eliminate enemies in a race to earn 200 points, or the most points before the time runs out. Capturing a hard point will give you a movement speed boost (the first of five potential buffs) and set your timer to 30 seconds. But beware: these buffs come at an explosive cost of your life when the clock hits zero.
New content for Zombies Outbreak
Cranked 2: No Time to Crank (launch)
All players start with a knife, as well as all active Mystery Box locations that are replenished with different weaponry, including more support items. Killing your first zombie starts a hand crank timer. Keep up the pace with each elimination, as the duration of the timer decreases as the rounds progress.
Unlock two new free weapons
Fill your secondary weapon category with two new weapons:
- Baseball Bat: Melee (Launch Week) – Make a big swing with this classic murderer’s melee weapon, as you take out zombies and enemy operators with the new baseball bat. (Note: The baseball bat will enter Warzone in Season Four after “Spring Training” in Black Ops Cold War Season 3 reloaded.)
- AMP63: Pistol (in season) – This personal defense weapon is a cross between an autoloading pistol and a fully automatic SMG. Expect significant damage in no time.
Get the AMP63 and the Baseball Bat in Season Three Reloaded by completing their in-game challenges or purchasing a version of Blueprint when it appears in the store.
