Two New Operators Join The Fight

It wouldn't be a mid-season update without new Operators, right? Well, Call of Duty is not holding back this time around. It's introducing another two Operators to Warzone and Black Ops Cold War; Rambo and John McClane.

If there were two characters that encapsulate the "80s Action Heroes" vibe, we're pretty certain it's them. Ahead of their launch, we've got details about the two new Operator Bundles that both Rambo and McClane will come in.

BECOME WAR - Now Treyarch need to re-introduce the M60 meta, right?

" Serving time for murder, highly decorated MACV-SOG soldier John Rambo is offered one more mission – return to Vietnam and locate American POWs. If successful, he will be released, and given a full Presidential pardon…"

We don't know the exact details yet, but we know that his Operator Bundle will contain the following:

  • Legendary Operator - John Rambo
  • Two Finishing Moves - One including a Bow and Arrow
  • Legendary AR Blueprint
  • Legendary LMG Blueprint
  • Legendary Knife Blueprint
  • Legendary Calling Card
  • Legendary Emblem
  • Epic Watch

WELCOME TO THE PARTY, PAL - If you're going to die, Die Hard, right?

" A hard-bitten cop on the streets of New York, John McClane has a talent for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now in the fight of his life, he’ll have to rely on his cocky attitude and level head to stay alive. "

We don't know the exact details yet, but we know that his Operator Bundle will contain the following:

  • Legendary Operator - John McClane
  • One Finishing Move
  • Legendary Tactical Rifle Blueprint
  • Legendary SMG Blueprint
  • Legendary AR Blueprint
  • Legendary Calling Card
  • Legendary Emblem
  • Epic Watch
  • Epic Weapon Charm

Both of these Operator Bundles will be available from May 19th 21:00 PST / 00:00 EST / 05:00 BST (May 20th) until June 18th at 21:00 PST / 00:00 EST / 05:00 BST (June 19th). We are under the impression that they will cost 2,400 COD Points each.

80s Action Heroes Warzone Content

The new Operators aren't the only new thing though; Warzone is getting a pretty major update considering Verdansk '84 was only released a month-odd ago.

Nakatomi Plaza, Survival Camps, and CIA Outpost are being added as new POIs to Verdansk '84.

Nakatomi Plaza is going to replace the Broadcast Tower in Verdansk's Downtown, the CIA Outpost is going to be located inside one of the Airport's hangars and there will be ten Survival Camps scattered across the rest of the map.

The Survival Camps will also be featured in the limited-time challenges that are due to be introduced alongside the new update.

On top of this, there's also going to be a new Limited-Time Mode coming to Warzone. Power Grab is going to feature a Kill Confirmed Dog Tag-based system that will earn your rewards and revives in-game.

" Each Dog Tag collected brings you one notch up a reward ladder, which is visible on the right side of your HUD. This reward ladder includes a UAV; a Respawn Token, which gives you the right to infil into Verdansk again; and Advanced Gas Masks and Specialist Bonuses, at higher tiers."

This new LTM will still operate on a "last man standing wins" endgame result, though.

Both the Combat Bow Killstreak and Ballistic Knife Special Weapon will be added to Warzone as Lootable items. There is no word on whether the Combat Bow will be added to Buy Stations, though.

All of this content should be added to Call of Duty: Warzone on May 20th at around 10:00 PST / 13:00 EST / 18:00 BST.

New Black Ops Cold War Content

Anyway, onto Black Ops Cold War... If Cold War bad, why is the update so good?

Standoff is returning to Black Ops as a 6v6 medium-sized Multiplayer map alongside Duga as a larger Multi-Team Multiplayer map.

Die Hardpoint is the first new novelty mode coming to Black Ops Cold War in the Season 3 Reloaded update. It combines Hardpoint with Cranked to provide a fast-paced mode where momentum is vital to victory.

" Work alongside your squad to capture Hardpoints and eliminate enemies in a race to gain 200 points, or the most points before time expires. Capturing a Hardpoint will give you a movement speed boost (the first of five potential buffs) and set your timer to 30 seconds. But beware: these buffs come at the cost of your life in explosive fashion when the clock hits zero."

Rambo's Gun Game is going to be added in "Week Two" of the Season 3 Reloaded content roadmap. This will follow the traditional Gun Game format but include weapons like the Combat Bow, RPG-7 and Death Machine. Players are going to get Stims though, so you should be able to handle it.

TIME TO KILL - Is the M60 meta going to return with Rambo's introduction? Probably not

Multi-Team Elimination is also being added as a new permanent mode in the 80s Action Heroes update. This is essentially a Battle Royale mode in Black Ops Cold War.

If you're interested in the medals, you'll be pleased to know that there's going to be some "action movie-inspired medals" replacing existing medals. These will reportedly be worth bonus XP and feature Explosive kills, Death Machine kills, and more.

LIGHT 'EM UP - Just another way Call of Duty is paying homage to Die Hard and Rambo

Zombies Content

If you thought that was it, you're mistaken. Black Ops Cold War's Call of Duty Zombies is getting a few new updates too.

A new Main Quest is being added to Outbreak alongside a new Orda World Event and... Fishing? Well, that's not what we expected. You should be able to get fairly good loot from it though, so if you need a break from the undead this might be a good way to spend it.

" As always, there are other secrets waiting in Outbreak for players to find on their own. Beware the new dangers that lurk in the Outbreak Zone, and keep your eyes peeled for anything out of the ordinary..."

Cranked 2: No Time To Crank is also being added to Firebase Z and Die Maschine as a limited-time playlist. This LTM is going to follow in Cranked's footsteps and feature a Cranked Timer. However, Wall Buys are going to be disabled and the Mystery Box is going to lean more towards Killstreaks and Explosives. Sounds fun, right?

All of Season 3's new weapons are being added to the Mystery Box rotation too and custom Blueprints can now be brought into Zombies alongside any Blueprints players already own.

New Weapons Are Coming

Don't worry, we haven't forgotten about the AMP.

The Baseball Bat is coming to Black Ops Cold War when the update goes live and you'll be able to unlock this via Weapon Blueprint or an in-game challenge. It won't be joining Warzone instantly though as they want to make sure that it's balanced.

In addition to this, though, the AMP-63 is finally being added to both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone "in-season". This is going to be fully automatic with a high damage output in the short time it fires. You can get this via Weapon Blueprint or an in-game challenge, like the other new weapons that get added mid-season.
