The first season of post-launch content for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is fast approaching.
Said to be the largest drop of free content ever seen in the history of the Call of Duty franchise, the stakes are high for Season One to deliver the goods after some players were unimpressed by the lack of content that arrived with the launch of the game on November 13th.
The new season will include a diverse range of content including new multiplayer maps, weapons, new game modes for zombies, and a new Warzone experience taking place on Rebirth Island.
Developer Treyarch is already preparing for the new season by applying some updates to the game to ensure the launch of Season One is as smooth as it can possibly be.
Some eagle-eyed players have discovered a glitch which allows them to buy the new Battle Pass before the new season has begun.
Season 1 Battle Pass Glitch
First reported by @WarzoneNewz, a glitch has enabled a player to use their hard-earned CoD Points to get their hands on the Season One Battle Pass way ahead of its launch on December 16th.

The glitch appears to occur in the post-game lobby. An option to buy two variations of the Battle Pass appears and allows players to purchase it before disappearing back to the post-game score per minute graph.
Battle Pass Glitch Fix
It’s clear that this particular glitch needs to be addressed as quickly as possible.
Treyarch plans on launching a second update on December 15th, a day before the launch of Season One.
This update could address the glitch or it could be to open the Battle Pass for everyone to purchase.
For those that have managed to encounter the glitch, this could well give them a head-start as they begin the grind to reach Tier 100.
