Here's what we know so far.

LATEST - The Numbers Event is just hours out

While The Numbers event is closing in fast, we still don't have a perfect idea of what content is coming to Call of Duty Warzone and Black Ops Cold War alike.

For now, we know the event will involve players visiting broadcast stations all around Verdansk, and that these stations are emitting some strange sounds. Players will have to complete some kind of tasks at these stations in order to claim a ton of different rewards.

But what's waiting on the other side?

Now just hours away from The Numbers Event start time, the secrets will soon be revealed.

WHEN does The Numbers Event start?

Although the Season 5 Reloaded Roadmap was a little lacklustre, it did offer us an insight into what to expect during The Numbers Event. Firstly, we know when it's due to start. As long as nothing goes wrong, we should see The Numbers Event kick-off at the following times:

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

As in-season events go, it's pretty late in the season. This means it should lead into Season 6 - narratively, at least. We still don't know as much as we'd like, but here's everything we've been told so far.

WHAT TO EXPECT from The Numbers Event...

At the moment, we don't really know how The Numbers Event is going to play out when we reach the date it's due to start - Treyarch and Raven Software have both been pretty quiet about it so far.

All we know so far is 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 limited-time event will begin on September 21 at 10 AM PT."

From our understanding, players are going to need to "investigate" the Mobile Broadcast Stations in Verdansk '84 to complete challenges that will reward them with Calling Cards, Emblems, and Weapon Charms. We should see a Weapon Blueprint or two appear, but it won't be anything worth writing home about.

The biggest reward from The Numbers Event looks to be the Sai melee weapon, which on its own makes the event worthwhile!

We could also see something different happen with the Red Doors, but it doesn't sound like this is going to be anything too groundbreaking as events go.
