New Content & Store Update

Throwback Moshpit 

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!

Firebase Z

Firebase Z,” Treyarch’s latest map in the new Dark Aether story. Following the events of “Die Maschine,” Grigori Weaver and the agents of Requiem will storm the jungles of Vietnam to rendezvous with an Omega Group informant and attempt to save Samantha Maxis from Outpost 25.

This entirely new Zombies location is packed with new enemies, game features, hidden secrets, and a powerful new Wonder Weapon to wield against the undead. Watch the trailer if you haven’t already, and get ready to grab your squad and jump in.

Tombstone Perk

Tombstone Soda Perk is back, and will be available in “Firebase Z” and the Der Wunderfizz machine in “Die Maschine.”

Dead Ops Arcade Solo Advanced Start

Players get an advanced starting position based on the highest round achieved in Dead Ops Arcade 3 Solo.


Express joins the Onslaught map list alongside new Zombies intel to discover in-game on February 4.

Double XP

To keep the momentum of Season One going, Double Weapon XP will be live on Black Ops Cold War and Warzone starting at 10AM PT on February 12 and running through February 15. And to sweeten the pot, Battle Pass tiers will be discounted from 150 CP to 100 CP from February 12-15.

Tracer Pack: Year of the Ox

Starting with Lunar New Year, there’s a “Tracer Pack: Year of the Ox” bundle that includes Legendary Weapon Blueprints. The “Golden Ox” is a red-and-gold Assault Rifle Delta featuring a Foregrip, Sillix Holoscout Optic, and an ammo-heavy STANAG 50 Rnd Drum.

Secret Admirer 

For Valentine’s Day, you can shoot straight for your enemy’s hearts with the “Top Secret Admirer” bundle, featuring the Legendary “Combat Cupid” Weapon Blueprint, a pink Tactical Rifle Charlie with combat-ready Cupid inlay built for firepower and speed. If you want to target your Valentine from afar, there’s the Legendary “Hidden Admiration” Sniper Rifle Alpha, with Steady Aim Laser, Sound Moderator Muzzle, and 7 Rnd Speed Mag.

Carnival Captain 

If you’re ready to let the good times roll on Mardi Gras, jump into battle with the “Carnival Captain” bundle, which features an epic “Breaker” skin for NATO’S Baker.
