We'll soon learn about the work Stitch has done in The Numbers Event, and much like Adler, we're tired of waiting.

Thankfully The Numbers Event is due to start soon!

Here's when The Numbers Event will begin in Call of Duty Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, and some of the content coming at launch.

LATEST - The Numbers Event Rewards


While The Numbers Event is still shrouded in mystery as it approaches launch time - we do know that there are some rewards for surviving what's on the other side.

THE FIGHT IS ON: New challenges bring new rewards, and new rewards bring new competition

The biggest of the upcoming rewards is the Sai melee weapon, which in the right hands can prove a stealthy and lethal combination to take players out up close and personally.


This will be the first functional weapon from a limited-time event in the game's history, so you don't want to miss it.

START TIME - When does the event begin?

The Season 5 Reloaded content roadmap was a little lacklustre in terms of new content, but the Call of Duty Blog post associated with it is an important source of information for The Numbers Event and the start time we're expecting - in fact, it's pretty much the only source of information! Call of Duty hasn't really said too much about The Numbers Event just yet. We guess they're busy with an Open Beta or something...

Either way, Call of Duty has confirmed that we should see the start of The Numbers Event at the following time:

  • 10:00 September 21st - PST
  • 13:00 September 21st - EST
  • 18:00 September 21st - BST

This is subject to change, of course, but the following statement was made:

"This limited-time event will begin on September 21 at 10 AM PT."

As you can see, it seems pretty clear cut. We should see Treyarch and Raven Software share some more information over the next couple of days.

WHAT TO EXPECT - Mobile Broadcast Stations and more

At the moment, details about The Numbers Event are few and far between. We heard a little bit about what's coming, but there's still a lot more to learn. We know that there's going to be a total of 18 challenges to complete across Warzone and Black Ops Cold War - finishing a set will get you a Sai Melee Weapon Blueprint - but that's about it.


Treyarch has said the following:

" Initially installed at the start of the season, the Mobile Broadcast Stations around Verdansk will soon begin amplifying the “Dragovich Program” tapes – A.K.A. the Numbers broadcasts – across the region.

WHAT IS GOING ON? - We should find out soon...
" These are the focus of The Numbers Event, an upcoming limited-time reward stream for Operators brave enough to investigate these trucks placed by Perseus."

This is supposedly the penultimate bit of narrative content for Black Ops Cold War's post-launch story, so we're surprised it isn't being talked about more. Hopefully, we'll learn a little more about what's coming soon.
