'Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War' (ALL) Season Two Begins Next Week, Details - Trailer

by Rainier on Feb. 16, 2021 @ 2:47 p.m. PST

A direct sequel to the original, fan-favorite Black Ops, and set in the early 1980s, Black Ops Cold War, drops players into the depth of the Cold War’s volatile geopolitical universe in a gripping experience where nothing is as it seems.

In addition to the story campaign, Black Ops Cold War will bring an arsenal of Cold War weapons and equipment into the next generation of Black Ops Multiplayer combat, and an all-new co-operative gameplay experience with Zombies.

In pure Black Ops style, Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War fuses elements of 1980s pop culture through a mind-bending conspiracy story, where deception and subterfuge are the norm in the gripping single-player Campaign. In this sequel to the original Call Of Duty: Black Ops, players encounter historic figures and learn hard truths as they battle around the globe through iconic locales like East Berlin, Turkey, Vietnam, Soviet-era Moscow, and more. As elite operatives, players attempt to stop a plot decades in the making as they follow the trail of a shadowy figure named Perseus, who is on a mission to destabilize the global balance of power and change the course of history. Beyond the Campaign, players will bring a wide selection of Cold War weapons and equipment into the next generation of Multiplayer combat and an all-new Zombies experience.

The title features cross-play support across current and next generation systems with cross progression across all modes. Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will also offer a Battle Pass system and deliver a steady stream of free post-launch content, including multiplayer maps and modes, Zombies experiences along with a robust schedule of in-game community events.

There’s a lot on the horizon in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, but there’s nothing bigger than the official launch of Season Two on February 25!

In the meantime, Season One keeps getting better, as Throwback Moshpit debuts in Multiplayer, Snipers Only Moshpit returns, Double XP and Double Battle Pass XP go live this weekend, and a cool new retro-themed bundle hits the store.

And don’t forget to check out the latest matchups for Week 2 of the Call of Duty League 2021 season, which resumes on February 18.

Let’s get on with your intel for this week…

The Lead: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season Two About to Launch

Get ready to descend into the heart of the Golden Triangle as Frank Woods and his team go on the hunt for Russell Adler, who went missing at the end of Season One after being captured by Stitch. But the strike team finds a new adversary in the form of Kapono “Naga” Vang, a ruthless trafficker of Nova 6.

Season Two officially launches in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone on February 25.

Throwback Moshpit Debuts in Black Ops Cold War

For old-school Black Ops fans looking to jump into some classic maps in Cold War, Treyarch’s Throwback Moshpit arrives on February 18th. This new playlist features fan-favorites Raid, Express, and Nuketown ’84 in a variety of respawn modes for everyone to enjoy all week long.

Snipers Only Moshpit, the popular 6v6 competition where players face off with nothing but sniper rifles, is back on February 18. Precision, patience, and some quick thinking is all you get outside of a sniper rifle, as all weapons and Scorestreaks (such as the War Machine) are restricted. Get your marksman loadout ready and have some fun!

Also continuing this week is Gunfight Blueprints, a 2v2 MP mode where duos square off with random Weapon Blueprints across five maps: Game Show, KGB, U-Bahn, ICBM, and Nuketown ’84.

More Double XP and Double Battle Pass XP Coming This Weekend

Starting at 10AM PT on February 19, a dual bonus of Double XP and Double Battle Pass XP will be live on Black Ops Cold War, running through 10AM PT on February 22. So if you haven’t made much headway during Season One’s Battle Pass, now’s your chance to really rack up those tiers and levels.

What’s In-Store This Week

Get your '80s retro vibe on with this week’s top bundle, “Retro Renegade,” available in-store on February 18.

The centerpieces of this bundle are two Weapon Blueprints, starting with the Ultra “Tape Deck,” a sky blue SMG Delta with colorful jazzercise trim. Backing up “Tape Deck” is the Legendary “Fast Tempo,” an Assault Rifle Echo built for speed.

Rounding out the bundle are the two more Legendary items – the “Forward Progress” watch and “Mixtape” Charm – as well as the “Retro Vision” Sticker, “Love Link” Calling Card, and “Retro” Vehicle Horn, and the Base Vehicle Skin “Renegade.”
