COD Cold War Season 3 Content Overview
The Story So Far: Perseus’ Next Move
Naga’s forces kept Frank Woods and his CIA strike team busy searching for Russell Adler in the Golden Triangle, buying Stitch the vital time he needed to initiate the next phase of his grand plan. Naga’s distraction may yet turn out to be the pivotal action that determines the course of the Cold War.
Meanwhile in Russia, two Perseus operatives travel to Mount Yamantau on a mission to recover top-secret files from a long-forgotten clandestine program for Stitch’s cause.
Woods and his team gear up to follow the intel uncovered at Naga’s base of operations in Laos. All signs point to Verdansk, and Adler’s fate is in their hands.
“Hunt for Adler” Event
Starting with the launch of Season Three, the new “Hunt for Adler” limited-time event will task Operators with unique in-game challenges in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone to learn of Adler’s whereabouts. Complete these Intel Challenges to unlock Event rewards, including Weapon Charms, Calling Cards, a new Operator Skin, and more.
Three New Operators, One Old Friend
Wraith: Warsaw Pact (Launch Week)
This ex-Norwegian Intelligence Services alpine warfare specialist-turned-Perseus-agent makes a grand entrance demonstrating her skills in infiltration and sabotage. A vital asset in winter operations, cold-blooded and intolerant of weakness, she’s the perfect antagonist to fight against the NATO forces.
Knight: Warsaw Pact (In-Season)
The second member of the deadly Perseus duo responsible for the events at Mount Yamantau is Roman “Knight” Gray. Born for the kill, Knight is a Dublin-born former MI6 wetworks operative who loves what he does. He joined Perseus to bathe in the glory of the chaos they promise. Happiest when killing in close quarters, he’s a brutal force to be reckoned with.
Antonov: Warsaw Pact (In-Season)
An ex-hitman, Antonov joined the military in lieu of serving extended jailtime for his crimes. His expertise as a paid killer makes him an extremely valuable and lethal asset. Distrusted by the Warsaw Pact because of his criminal past, he finds himself assigned duties no one else wants: bomb defusal and hazmat work.
Price Arrives in Black Ops Cold War
The worlds of Modern Warfare™ and Black Ops are colliding once more, as a Legendary Operator joins the fray in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
That Operator is none other than Price ‘84, propelled into the Cold War era and outfitted in tactical gear suited for the most clandestine of wetwork operations.
Those who purchase any version of Black Ops Cold War at the start of Season Three will receive the Price ’84 Operator for use in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. Plus, anyone who already owns Black Ops Cold War will automatically receive the Price ’84 Operator at the start of Season Three.
Six New Weapons
PPSh-41: SMG (Launch Week)
Swiss K31: Sniper Rifle (Launch Week)
Ballistic Knife: Melee (Launch Week)
CARV.2: Tactical Rifle (In-Season)
AMP63: Pistol (In-Season)

Four Multiplayer Maps and Additional Features
Yamantau (6v6, Launch Week)
Bury your enemies in an avalanche of firepower as you fight through the crumbled remains of the Soviet observatory on Mount Yamantau. Battle through a massive downed satellite dish, snowy interiors, and broken catwalks, and fast-rope up and over your enemies to get the jump on the competition.
Diesel (6v6/2v2/3v3, Launch Week)
In the lonesome desert, this slice of Americana erupts into a battleground. Gear up for 6v6, as well as 2v2 and 3v3 in Gunfight on this fast-paced and frenetic map. Battle around the gas station and its surrounding buildings, smack dab in the middle of the badlands. Get frying.
Standoff (6v6, In-Season)
This Black Ops II classic is an icon to fans and pros alike, and in Season Three, it’s coming to Black Ops Cold War. Compete in 6v6 on this medium-sized map, which features a timeless three-lane feel and plentiful opportunities for outsmarting your opponents. Watch those buildings and mind the van over near the hay bales.
Duga (Multi-Team, In-Season)
Deploy with your squad to the Ural Mountains in this expansive new Multi-Team environment. Duga offers something for every playstyle, whether you prefer to move through the central admin offices for close-range battles, or work your way around the perimeter through the bus depot to the chemical processing plant for long-range battles. If you can’t immediately decide where to take your skills, try making your way atop the array tower for a fantastic view before parachuting off to your destination of choice.
Sticks and Stones Returns at Season Launch
Yes, the hugely popular Multiplayer mode is back for Black Ops Cold War, continuing Treyarch’s time-honored party mode tradition.
Multi-Team Elimination (In-Season)
The upcoming Multi-Team Elimination mode brings the last-team-standing experience to Black Ops Cold War’s biggest maps, where multiple teams of four will fight to survive ever-expanding radiation zones. Redeploys will be limited and loadouts will be restricted, so teams will need to scavenge for weapons, Scorestreaks, Armor, Redeploy Tickets, and more. Emerge as the last team standing or the first squad to board the exfil chopper in the final safe zone to achieve victory.
New Tools of the Trade
Scorestreak: Strafe Run (Launch Week)
Call upon a pair of jet fighters to shower lead and rockets down upon the DZ with this new mid-tier Scorestreak, perfect for racking up kills or holding down an area while your team captures the objective. With a longer active period and higher potential for kills compared to Scorestreaks like the Napalm Strike, the Strafe Run is a solid choice for any MP mode.
Cargo Truck (Launch Week)
Available across Multi-Team modes, the Cargo Truck is a massive beast of machinery capable of fitting a few Operators in its open truck bed, in addition to a driver and copilot. What the Cargo Truck lacks in speed, it makes up for in firepower, coming equipped with a mounted machine gun that allows a teammate to provide cover against potential threats.
New Outbreak Content and More in Zombies
New Field Upgrade: Toxic Growth
Mother Nature bites back with this new Field Upgrade in round-based maps and Outbreak, guaranteed to slow down the undead masses. By harnessing Aetherium Crystals, Requiem’s R&D team has developed Toxic Growth, an activatable Field Upgrade that summons a deadly growth of toxic thorns in front of an Operator.
Enemies moving through it have their movement speed halved and suffer toxic damage until they exit the affected area. Through the use of Aetherium Crystals, Operators can upgrade Toxic Growth to give it more charges, double its damage, and even cause enemies who perish from the growth to explode!
New Outbreak Region: Duga (Launch Week)
The Dark Aether story comes to a fever pitch in Season Three as Requiem expands its operations in Russia. Keep the hordes at bay as you and your squad fight through the massive new Duga region set in the Ural Mountains, packed with new documents, audio logs, radio transmissions, and artifacts hidden throughout the Outbreak Zone. Uncover new secrets of the Dark Aether as the stage is set for the events yet to come.
New Outbreak Vehicles: FAV and Cargo Truck (Launch Week)
Hit the road with two new vehicles for Outbreak, and take down some zombies while you’re at it thanks to their built-in armaments. The high-speed Fast Attack Vehicle (FAV) is ideal for gunning down zombies while racing for the next objective, while the Cargo Truck is big enough to fit the whole squad as you hunt down those Special and Elite zombies.
New Outbreak World Events and Features (Launch Week)
Experience new interactive events throughout the Ural Mountains to earn in-game rewards! For the first time in Outbreak, gain access to upgrades for the D.I.E. Machine Wonder Weapon, unlock the powerful Aether Tool item by destroying Fury Crystals, discover the secret to warping ahead to higher difficulty regions even faster, and more.
Expanded Outbreak Objectives (Launch Week)
Outbreak objectives are now active in more locations than ever before in Season Three. Encounter the Defend, Retrieve, and Holdout Objectives in more regions for even more variety in every Outbreak match.
New Onslaught Content (PlayStation) (Launch Week)
PlayStation players can take on the undead to earn Bronze, Silver, and Gold Chalices in Onslaught on the new Yamantau map at launch, and on Standoff mid-season. Look for a new limited-time mode in Onslaught later in Season Three, as well.
