Season One is said to be the largest drop of free content in the history of the Call of Duty franchise, and will bring new content to multiplayer, Warzone, and zombies.
The release of Black Ops Cold War marked a new era for Call of Duty zombies as the series embarked on a brand-new storyline exploring the origins of the paranormal creatures.
Beginning on December 16th, zombies will receive two limited-time modes, new challenges, new Calling Cards, new weapons to earn through the Battle Pass and more.
Here’s everything you need to know about Season One zombies content.

Along with brand-new Calling Cards, a new Cruise Missile support streak and the addition of two new maps for the Onslaught mode, players can rank up the Battle Pass and access the Groza assault rifle and the MAC-10 sub-machine gun that can be used to slay the undead.
Season 1 Game Modes
Throughout the course of Season One, there will be two brand-new limited-time modes arriving to zombies.
The first mode adds a festive twist to Die Maschine. Jingle Hells will be available from December 16th and will feature a range of festive decorations around the map, new Christmas-themed weaponry, and some unique surprises hidden inside the snowmen.
The second mode coming later on in the season is inspired from fast-paced multiplayer mode Cranked. Once you have eliminated a zombie, a countdown timer will appear and if you don’t score another kill before the timer runs out, you explode!
Season One Challenges
Details surrounding Seasonal Challenges have yet to be revealed but we can expect them to contain a variety of tasks including scoring eliminations with a range of weaponry, defeating a specific amount of Megaton zombies, and more.
Alongside Seasonal Challenges, there will be Daily Challenges to complete for additional XP.
