Call of Duty Cold War season 2 has launched today, with Warzone and Black Ops players able to download the update across all platforms. Depending on which platform you’re on, the latest Call of Duty update will weigh in between 17 to 17.9GB on consoles. The big headline addition for Call of Duty Cold War season 2 will be the new Outbreak mode.

This Zombies-style experience is set on a huge map and sees players facing off with surviving against hordes of enemies as they complete experiments while using vehicles and other devices.

Elsewhere Call of Duty Cold War season 2 will bring with it a brand new Battle Pass with 100 tiers.

And the season 2 patch has also changed the Verdansk map in Warzone, with a new Shipwreck POI added.

Speaking about the release of the new Black Ops Cold War update, Raven Software on Twitter said: “Season Two is now live in both #BlackOpsColdWar and #Warzone!

“New Battle Pass. New Modes. New Weapons. New Operators. New POIs. And more”.

Zombies Meta Update


Starting on Feb 26, all players get Double XP and Double Weapon XP all weekend long in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone to celebrate the kickoff of Season Two! Gain twice as much progress toward your next Prestige and max out those weapons through 10AM PT Mar 1. PlayStation players also get an extra 24 hours of 2XP and 2WXP starting Feb 25.


Rebirth Resurgence Extreme (Launch Week)

Up to 99 players will drop onto Rebirth Island for an incredibly frenetic fight for supremacy, as they look to eliminate every last member of enemy squads to prevent them from getting a second, third, or even forth chance at revenge. Just like Resurgence, squad members can spawn back in if their Rebirth Countdown hits zero and at least one of their allies is still alive, and specific Caches around the map will refresh their items frequently to ensure there is no shortage of firepower around the island.

Exfiltration (In Season)

In this mode, a portable radio crackles into life, coming online somewhere in Verdansk. The Operator who secures this radio and holds onto it for a sufficient period of time automatically wins the game for their squad. To ensure their exfil isn’t by the book, anyone holding the radio is marked on the Tac Map as if they were under a Most Wanted Contract (High Value Target) with all Operators also receiving intel on how much longer the current radio holder has until they win. Other than this new win condition, the same Battle Royale rules apply. Expect a circle collapse and a winner to be determined by last squad standing, should nobody receive an early exfil with the radio.

A team of Operators discovered Missile Silos hidden underneath the city’s three war monuments:

Zoszni Spomenik southeast of the Novi Grazna Hills
