Black Ops Cold War Zombies

Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War has effectively revolutionized how the franchise treats zombies. On standard zombies maps, players can now bring their own weapon classes and customizations or even extract from the map if they want. And then there’s Outbreak, a new large-scale zombies game mode that introduces new boss enemies and has an entirely different flow to its gameplay. It seems like that trend of innovation isn’t stopping either. Treyarch has announced that another new wave of content for zombies in Black Ops Cold War is on the way, starting with a main quest for Outbreak.

Outbreak’s main quest will be launching on May 20 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, along with a ton of other new features for the zombies mode in Black Ops Cold War. According to a post from Treyarch, three extra additions will be made to Outbreak. Players can expect a new world event, an encounter with an Orda, the towering zombie boss from the map Firebase Z. On a lighter note, fishing is also being added to Outbreak, along with a slew of new lore in the form of audio logs, intel documents, radio transmissions, and more.


Changes to all zombies modes

A number of changes are also coming to all zombies game modes in Black Ops Cold War. In both round-based maps and Outbreak, players will find the following new weapons in the mystery box:

  • Groza assault rifle
  • Mac-10 SMG
  • Streetsweeper shotgun
  • Fara 83 assault rifle
  • LC10 SMG
  • R1 Shadowhunter crossbow
  • ZRG 20mm sniper rifle
  • Sledgehammer melee weapon
  • Wakizashi melee weapon
  • Machete melee weapon
  • E-Tool melee weapon

Things don’t stop there in terms of weaponry. Players will soon be able to bring custom blueprints into zombies with a new “apply blueprint” feature. According to Treyarch, this will let players create “multiple configurations for every weapon in the game and apply you Custom Mods to all weapons found in a game session.”
