There will also be several new challenges on offer - including Trick or Treat locations and of course, skins - including some familiar faces from iconic movie franchises.

Warzone's Haunting of Verdansk update details explained

Though Warzone has dabbled in events before, Haunting of Verdansk feels like a huge step up - with significant map changes and skins as part of the Halloween theme. This includes:

  • 16 Trick or Treat rewards, which are found in new supply boxes which offer universal rewards (such as blueprints, charms, a holographic watch and more) or a "brief scare". Collecting all 16 gives you the Pumpkin Punisher Legendary Assault Rifle blueprint.
  • A 'Haunted' version of Verdansk in Warzone, which is set during the night and has a few spooky differences. "Although the full moon's glow prevents total darkness, operators might want to still pack some Thermal optics in their Loadout Drops to help spot enemies lurking about in low-light areas or use Cold-Blooded to counter these high-tech tools," says an official blurb.
  • New Warzone modes, including Zombie Royale, Juggourdnaut Royale, Nightime BR and in Week 2, Nighttime Plunder.
  • New Modern Warfare multiplayer modes, including Onslaught-er Mode, TDM Snipers Only, Gunfright and Halloween Mosh Pit.
  • During Week 2, a Double XP weekend.
  • New store bundles with a Halloween theme, including those based on movie franchises such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Saw.
