Warzone And Black Ops Cold War 80s Action Heroes Event: Everything You Need To Know

The start of Season 3 Reloaded for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War is on the horizon. The mid-season update will feature a wealth of new content arriving across both games, including John Rambo and John McClane Operators and so much more.

To further embed the theme of the 1980s across both titles, the 80s Action Heroes event is the latest limited-time event to take place. The last event was the Hunt for Adler event where players had to complete a range of challenges across Black Ops Cold War and Warzone to unlock exclusive cosmetic items.

The concept remains the same. Black Ops Cold War will have its own set of challenges alongside Warzone, which will have its own challenges.
