Treyarch have revealed the new multiplayer maps that they will introduce in Season 2 of Black Ops Cold War, and it seems that we will also get a daytime variant of Season 1’s Miami as a bonus map.
Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 1 brought a ton of new content for Call of Duty fans to dive into. This included a few new maps to battle in, and we’re already wondering what Treyarch have planned for Season 2.
The devs have unveiled their plans for the game’s next update in the Season 2 roadmap, which confirmed four new incoming multiplayer maps. It turns out that we will also be getting a new version of Season 1’s Miami as a bonus.
Black Ops Cold War Season 2 will have a new Miami
Treyarch decided to stick with a 1980s aesthetic when designing Miami and while this is a cool concept, the map’s final design has received backlash from a good portion of the Call of Duty community due to some major problems.
One of the most glaring issues is the map’s dark lighting, as it makes it difficult to spot your opponents in the shadows. You’ll waste a good portion of your time searching for them, and will have to do it again once you get killed.
Another problem is the map’s openness, which discourages you from going into the center due to the number of players that are scanning the area. Treyarch have listened to the criticisms and will introduce a new daytime variant of Miami in Season 2.
This new version is known as Miami Strike and will be smaller than the original. As the name implies, we can expect this map variant to have a lot in common with the “strike” versions of Combined Arms.
In a Tweet released from Treyarch, the map was confirmed and gave us some teasers on what’s to come. The map seems significantly smaller than the original counterpart, and also appears to be overhauled for close-quarters combat. This map will release as part of the midseason update during the week of March 28, 2021.
Hopefully, this map overhaul will please the fans since they have had many complaints about the maps in Black Ops Cold War since it first launched. The game went live with a low number of 6v6 maps at its base, and they have the same gripes with Season 2.

Cold War players frustrated with Judge Dredd Lawgiver bug
Call of Duty’s newest big-name bundle is the Judge Dredd offering, but the cosmetics come with one big flaw that has annoyed buyers.
The Judge Dredd bundle is in Black Ops Cold War, but it has a glaring oversight when it comes to the Lawgiver skin as it doesn’t provide full coverage to dual-wield loadouts.
Novelty bundles are always welcome in big games: Fortnite, in particular, being the master of incorporating mainstream names and stars into a crazy, fictional world.
Call of Duty is no slouch in this department either though, as it has been able to provide its players the opportunity to become Rambo and John McClane. Not content with letting this be the only high-profile skin in recent memory, Call of Duty gamers can now become Judge Dredd.
A legend in comic books, the character can now be used to score dubs, but players are disappointed that dual-wield weapons only get one of the guns covered in the Lawgiver skin.
Two separate posts on Reddit have drawn attention to this Judge Dredd bundle bug, and they’ve garnered nearly 1.5K upvotes between them.
For some reason, the main gun (the right one) has the Lawgiver Blueprint equipped, whereas the left one doesn’t.
In the second Reddit post, “Akimbo AMP63 “Lawgiver” bug,” we see the exact same problem, a player with two AMP63s in their loadout, but only one has the paid Blueprint on display, and this applies to both Cold War and Warzone.
“You have to buy it twice, obviously,” one user jokingly suggested, whereas someone else came up with an inventive thought: “Tbh this would be rather cool, imagine having the ability to use 2 different blueprints for dual-wielded weapons at the same time.
“Obviously not with different attachments but different cosmetics, i.e Dark matter in one hand and dark aether in the other.”
Given that this Blueprint comes with a paid bundle, it’s easy to see why some Cold War players would be frustrated about the lack of full coverage for their weapons. Given the public anger towards this bug, Treyarch may very well look into this.

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.
