Treyarch and Raven teased the Warzone and Cold War Season 5 roadmap, and it's loaded with new modes, Operators, weapons, and more.

Raven also teased another new map update, but hid details behind [Redacted] tags.

New Mode: Clash

Raven describes Clash as a "spiritual successor to Rumble" that brings 50v50 combat to select areas of Verdansk. Contracts and public events can spawn at any time during matches as well.

New Gulag: Rush

This season's Gulag is based on the classic Black Ops II map and features a massive central speedball arena.

New Perks

  • Combat Scout: Damaging a foe briefly highlights them and automatically pings them.
  • Tempered: Armor plates are tempered more heavily, so two count as "fully armored"

Cold War Season 5 Roadmap

New Multiplayer Mode: Double Agent

Treyarch describes Double Agent as an "investigative party experience" where the goal is sussing out which among you is the spy bent on sabotaging the mission or successfully destroying the team to carry out your plan.

Roles are divided between Double Agents, Investigators, and Operatives, each with unique abilities and access to special items and weapons.

Demolition (Mid Season)

The classic protect-and-defend mode arrives for the first time in Cold War. One side must defend a set of active bombs from assault, while the other's goal is activating the bombs.

New Maps

  • Echelon (6v6)
  • Showroom (3v3, 2v2)
  • Slums (6v6)
  • Drive-in (6v6, mid-season)
  • Zoo (6v6, mid-season)

New Region - Collateral

This Outbreak region debuts at launch and is full of both zombie hordes and Aetherium Crystals. It's also home to several missions and a brand-new vehicle-based objective.

New Objective - Transport

This objective also debuts at launch and tasks you with escorting a vehicle safely through the hordes in the Outbreak Zone, but you'll have an extra set of treads to help out.

New Vehicle - Tank

The tank is bulldozing its way into Outbreak. It's a mobile fortress with cannons and mini-guns, but as you'd expect, it's also very slow.
