What's new in the Season 6 update in Black Ops - Cold War and Warzone?

Double agents had their spotlight during Season 5, while Season 5 Reloaded had a build up towards The Numbers event. Now, the storyline is culminating with a showdown between Adler and Stitch.


As per usual, Black Ops: Cold War players will receive new modes and playlists. There'll be quite a few new weapons to most likely shake the meta, too, as well as the grand finale to Zombies.

Warzone is on the spotlight in regards to Verdansk. In the trailer we witness some areas of the battle royale map destroyed, and this has an impact on the points of interest you'll be navigating through.
