COD CW update 1.21 (Season 5 update) is now available to download on PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox Series X, and Xbox One. According to the latest COD CW update 1.21 patch notes, the latest update added free content includes a first-in-the-franchise Double Agent mode in Multiplayer alongside new and classic Black Ops maps. Apart from this, COD BO CW version 1.21 also includes the next free Zombies map.
Previously, a big update added various quality of life changes. Unfortunately, since the release, some players are facing issues while playing the game online.
Today’s COD CW patch 1.21 will fix a few of these issues. Read more details below.
The Story So Far: Time to Execute the Mission
“This is Wraith. The Verdansk tests are looking good… that clears the way for you.”
Having emerged from the shadows with a direct assault on the Ground Station in South Africa and the de-orbiting of an American satellite constellation, Perseus continues their offensive.
Wraith hands off Dragovitch’s data, stolen from the Soviet facility on Mount Yamantau to a mysterious operative, along with details of the next phase of Perseus’s nefarious plan.
BLACK OPS COLD WAR CONTENT:
Added a new Double Agent mode
The new Double Agent mode brings an investigative Multiplayer party experience where each match assigns Double Agents who are there to sabotage the mission. Communicate, investigate, and expose the traitors – or successfully wipe out the investigating team – to win.
It starts with up to ten players in a lobby who are assigned one of three roles:
Double Agents – eliminate everyone else or successfully set off explosive charges around the map.
The Investigator, who can use clues to target suspected Double Agents as Wanted criminals.
Operatives, who must work together to identify and eliminate the Double Agents before it’s too late.
Each player starts with a pistol. Weapons and Equipment are introduced in the Preparing Stage, where all players can grab weapons in different parts of the map.
Added Demolition Game Mode
Two teams battle it out as attackers attempt to destroy a pair of active bombsites, while defenders must prevent the detonations. All-out chaos ensues when time is extended after the first bomb site is destroyed, and you’d better be prepared with plenty of Scorestreaks and squadmates for backup should one final bomb be planted at the last second.
Prepare to seek and destroy Double Agents – and execute missions across a variety of Multiplayer modes – in a collection of locales both fresh and familiar, especially to true veterans of the Black Ops series.
Echelon (6v6, Launch)
Set at Teufelsberg – also known as “Devil’s Mountain” – in Berlin, Echelon sees Operators fighting through the rain and ash in the aftermath of Perseus’ latest operation.
Slums (6v6, Launch)
First introduced in Call of Duty®: Black Ops II, Slums is set deep within Panama City, where a town square featuring a central fountain invites long-range combat across lanes and plenty of aerial Scorestreak bombardments.
Showroom (2v2 and 3v3, Launch)
On this map, expect to have fast fights over and around various displays and kiosks, which provide a unique aesthetic and map structure compared to the other smaller maps in Black Ops Cold War.
Drive-In (6v6, In-Season)
Remastered for the first time in honor of its 10-year anniversary as part of the Black Ops Annihilation Map Pack, Drive-In features close-quarters fights and powerful overwatch points, particularly around the big screen of the Galactic Drive-In, where snipers and other long-range weapons can shine.
Zoo (6v6, In-Season)
Rounding out Season Five’s trio of classic maps is another post-launch theater of battle: the intense 6v6 incarnation of Zoo from the original Black Ops, arriving later in the season.
The Flamethrower seeks to round out the game-changing Multiplayer support items as a low-cost Scorestreak Weapon.
A ranged incendiary device that is lost upon death (functioning in the same way as the Combat Bow or Hand Cannon), the Flamethrower shoots a steady stream of flame, immolating enemies within close range.
New Perk, Field Upgrade, and Support Weapon (Launch)
Expect the introduction of even more helpful items to assist you across all round-based maps and Outbreak in Zombies, in the form of a new Perk, new Field Upgrade, and new Support Weapon.
First up, Death Perception makes its debut as Black Ops Cold War’s ninth Zombies Perk, granting any agent who drinks it the ability to “see” obscured enemies by giving them a bright outline. Of course, the real “secret sauce” of this Perk lies in its five additional upgrades through its Skill Tiers; use those Aetherium Crystals to gain access to powerful new effects designed to help your squad survive even longer.
Expect even more Zombies content set to drop during Season Five, including the new Ikari EggXit bonus map in Dead Ops Arcade 3 and new narrative Intel to be found across Outbreak and Onslaught. Collect every bit of Intel Season Five has to offer to discover the latest secrets of the Dark Aether story for yourself.
With agents of Requiem surviving captivity from Omega Group in “Mauer der Toten” – along with their beloved pilot, Raptor-1 – the operation in Outbreak has grown beyond the Ural Mountains and brings plenty of new armaments to boot.
New Outbreak Region – Collateral (Launch)
After the events in Berlin, Dark Aether Outbreak Zones have continued to appear far beyond Eurasia, with the latest site crackling to life in the Algerian Desert.
This huge new region (codenamed “Collateral”) has become an incredibly unstable area, making it a prime spot to harvest Aetherium Crystals and further investigate the Dark Aether.
New Outbreak Objective – Transport (Launch)
Players will encounter the all-new Transport Objective, which tasks you and your squad with ensuring an important drivable Requiem machine makes its way across the Outbreak Zone safely.
And speaking of vehicles, the king of them all comes to Outbreak in Season Five to help you lay waste to the undead…
New Outbreak Vehicle – Tank (Launch)
Need a bit more firepower than the FAV? How about a Tank straight from the Warsaw Pact? This new Outbreak vehicle is ready to blow holes in Ordas, Krasny Soldats, and everything else without a pulse with its massive cannon, available in several regions at the start of the season.
New Outbreak Crafting Item – Grapple Gun (Launch)
Outbreak players will also get access to a new Crafting Item in Season Five: the Grapple Gun. Getting around the Outbreak Zone becomes trivial with this handy device, allowing Operators to spend less time on foot and more time shooting zombies in the face. Visit the Crafting Table to get your hands on the Grapple Gun at the start of the season.
PlayStation players should pack their bags for Devil’s Mountain this season, as the Onslaught Orb looms over the plateau on the new Echelon map.
Grab your partner and prepare to fight back waves of increasingly difficult enemies, making sure to pick up every last piece of new Intel along the way.
Later this season, expect another limited-time mode to arrive in Onslaught, in addition to a new Weapon Blueprint and other surprises for PlayStation players.
