Some of Black Ops Cold War’s Operators have challenges that require you to play Warzone to unlock camos and this is frustrating its fanbase.
The crossover between BOCW and Warzone added a whole wealth of new content for Warzone players including a lot of new guns to play with. This greatly bolstered the Battle Royale experience and changed the dynamics of the game’s meta.
On the other side of things, it seems that both games are not being considered as separate games. Operators in Black Ops Cold War have specific challenges that require you to play Warzone in order to complete. Given that some people don’t like Warzone, they feel like they’re being shortchanged.
Warzone exclusive Operator Challenges for BOCW
Both games are currently active alongside one another. This is clearly evident in the respective game’s home screens as you can seamlessly switch between them.
This is supposed to promote unity and allow greater accessibility between Activision Blizzard‘s Call of Duty titles. However, fans are growing tired of the notion that they are very much linked with each other instead of being treated as individual experiences.
The official Black Ops Cold War subreddit has a popular thread showcasing the dismay of many of the game’s players. Reddit user Snatisfaction posted their dissatisfaction for all to see. People with similar views agreed in droves.
“Ah, getting my full £50 worth that I spent on purchasing the game to receive content that’s actually telling me to play a different game. Nice mentality.”
The reoccurring complaint is that lots of people have paid a lot of money to play Black Ops Cold War. But to gain access to the content they have rightly paid for, they’re being forced to play another game – a free one at that – to get their content.
Some people will argue that these challenges are entirely optional. But others will argue will that this is irrelevant and shouldn’t be a thing in the first place.
It’ll be in the hands of the devs as to whether or not they decide to change this and have separate challenges for each game. But if the negativity continues to rise and spread, then they may be forced to take action.

New Cold War Season 6 Zombies map teaser reveals Requiem’s & Omega’s target
The Dark Aether storyline continues in Black Ops Cold War Season 6, with the latest teasers revealing the plans for Requiem and Omega.
The teasers are rolling in for Black Ops Cold War’s Season 6 Zombies map, and the latest has revealed Requiem and Omega’s target.
Now that players are invested in the Dark Aether storyline for Zombies, players are excited to see where the story develops.
With the recent teasers alluding to where the next round-based map will be set, players now have more information on how the Black Ops Cold War Season 6 Zombies map will contribute to the Dark Aether Storyline.
Zombies’ storyline has always been a big part of the mode, keeping players engaged over the years, wanting to know what will happen next. With Black Ops Cold War, players have been following both Requiem and Omega, uncovering the secrets behind the Dark Aether.
The most recent teasers were posted by Treyarch on Twitter, and since they have already teased the location of the map, it’s only right that they tease some of the story. The teaser is a letter from Weaver detailing team Requiem of their next mission.
In the teaser, it seems the map’s story will be centered around a new target known as Sergent Kazimir Zykov, who seems to have a lot of history and knowledge about the Dark Aether and how to “defeat the Forsaken.”
Both Requiem, the good guys, and Omega, the bad guys, will be looking to capture the target, with the teaser stating that if Omega’s leader, Kravchenko, succeeds, they will lose Zykov for good.
So, the next easter egg for Season 6’s round-based Zombies map will be based around capturing Zykov and using his knowledge about the Dark Aether to defeat Omega.

First Cold War Season 6 Zombies map teasers features campaign location
Black Ops Cold War Zombies players will be intrigued by new teasers of the next Zombies map, which is set to release in Season 6.
Treyarch has started to tease the next round-based Zombies map arriving in Black Ops Cold War Season 6 with various images and messages.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies has been through a fairly quiet season.
Even with the latest Season 5 Reloaded update, which introduced a new Black Chest World Event in Outbreak and a new Rampage Inducer for round-based maps, players haven’t seen anything about the next map.
That has changed recently, as the developers are finally starting to give players hints towards where the next round-based Zombies map with take place, teasing the location on Treyarch’s social media pages.
The last round-based Zombies map we’ve seen in Black Ops Cold War was Mauer der Toten, set in Berlin. The map was enjoyed by many, especially the easter egg, which continued the developing Dark Aether storyline.
This map, as well as Firebase Z, were both locations taken from the game’s campaign. It seems this trend won’t be stopping for Season 6‘s round-based map, as the hints and teasers show off a familiar location for those who have played the campaign.
In the teasers, players can see the secret military facility based in the Soviet Republic of Ukraine, the location for the campaign’s sixth mission, “Redlight, Greenlight.”
In the teaser, Ravenov has left Weaver a message saying, “Weaver – This is the place we must make our stand here. – Ravenov,” indicating that this will indeed be the next Zombies map for Season 6.
This wasn’t the only teaser they posted either. On Instagram and Facebook, Treyarch Studios posted two different locations from inside the facility that will most likely be important for the map’s easter egg.
In the first, Ravenov claims Kravchenko is planning to open a “special gateway,” which could potentially be the machinery seen in the image’s background.
Further, the image posted to Facebook shows another piece of interesting machinery, with Ravenov leaving a message that states: “Omega’s next operation is already well underway they have been constructing for months.”
From these teasers, it’s clear that we will be heading to the same facility seen in the campaign and that this map will continue the Dark Aether storyline and involve Kravchenko opening a special gateway.
We’ll have to wait and see how this will all develop once Season 6 is out. We will also get more information on this map when Season 6 is announced and a release date for when the map will launch, as it could be during the season.
