Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

Hilarious video explains why the Call of Duty Raid map makes no sense

A funny, player-made video has explained, with evidence, as to why one of CoD’s most popular maps ever actually makes zero sense.

The nature of Call of Duty maps is often overlooked and Raid may actually be the worst offender out of any. The Replay Mode YouTube channel has created a satirical video that explains the map’s peculiarities.

Raid came into our lives in 2012 with Treyarch’s CoD: Black Ops II. The exquisitely designed map takes place on the grounds of a multi-million dollar property, featuring an expensive sports car, a stylish sculpture, a massive pool, and many other lavish features.

Until now, it’s always been regarded as one of Call of Duty’s greatest multiplayer maps, but a new perspective has revealed that it’s actually quite a bizarre creation.

A YouTube channel by the name of Replay Mode has posted many satirical videos that clearly parody many elements of Black Ops Cold War. Some of these videos include compilations of amusing player IDs, showcasing CoD glitches, and most notably tours of the game’s maps.

One of the videos is the “Accurate Tour of Raid” and it points out many key details that people have perhaps been unaware of due to the all-encompassing nature of the map’s combat.

The narration systematically dissects all the blinding obvious faults with this piece of ill-conceived estate, and you quickly wonder why you’ve never realized these details before.

For instance, the Master Bedroom provides a sumptuous view of the pool but doesn’t connect to anything else. The Kitchen is isolated, meaning you have to take your food outside to get to a more relaxing area of the house.

But the icing on the cake has to be Raid’s Panic Room. A type of room that’s designed to be so tightly secured that no one can get in. Yet the room has a gaping window that anyone could access.

The video is made in jest of course and is just a light-hearted interpretation of the map’s more irrational aspects. You should definitely check out the full video.

Just remember, the next time you’re in the middle of a heated game of Raid, someone’s pizza is getting rained on.

When does Black Ops Cold War Season 4 begin? Reveal, start date, details, maps, weapons, more

Season 3 of Black Ops Cold War is halfway done, but when can we expect Season 4, and what maps and weapons will it have?

Despite all the new changes that Season 3 has brought, we are already well on the way to CoD: Cold War Season 4. We’ll look at when it starts and any other relevant details such as new maps, guns, and changes.

Season 3 of Black Ops Cold War has really filled up the game with lots of extra content and made it feel like one of the fullest Call of Duty games to date. Cold War has continued to do what it does best: deliver exciting new maps and pile on more guns, including the PPSH-41, Swiss K31, and AMP63.

Between Outbreak’s new Easter Egg, the new Cold War battle royale mode, and the myriad of other modes available in the game, Season 3 has made Cold War a jam-packed experience. But we still have a few months to go until the presumed release of Call of Duty 2021, so there’s still plenty more to come.

Here’s everything we know about Season 4 of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War so far.

Black Ops Cold War Season 4 Reveal

Players will be able to get their first look at what the new season will be bringing to the world of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War during the Kickoff Live portion of the Summer Game Fest on June 10 2021.

The official Season 4 gameplay trailer for Black Ops Cold War was released on June 10, 2021, and it featured a variety of exciting glimpses at content players will be able to experience. You can find the full trailer below:

Black Ops Cold War Season 4 start date

One constant about each new season of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is that as soon as one finishes the next starts soon after.

The current Season 3 Battle Pass is scheduled to end around June 15th or June 16th, and the downtime is usually nothing to worry about.

So we can expect Season 4 to start on June 16th or 17th.

Cold War x Warzone Season 4 teaser

Upon launching Black Ops Cold War or Warzone, the final cutscene for Season 3 plays out. After Adler was rescued from Verdansk, Stitch and his cronies hatch the next stage of their evil plan.

This teaser hints at a new Operator and perhaps a new location for a new multiplayer map. Wraith mentions that their “man in South Africa is standing by.” This could hint that a South African Operator will be coming in Season 4, and there might be a new map set in South Africa along with him.

New Black Ops Cold War Season 4 maps

The new season of content for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will bring some new maps for players to battle against each other, with one of them being a classic fan favorite from the past.

These new maps are Collateral, Amsterdam, and popular Black Ops II map Hijacked and were officially revealed on June 10.

Given that we’re not too far away from details about Season 4 of Cold War becoming official, it’s only natural that rumors and speculation are starting to become rife.

With the midseason Reloaded content drop behind us and John McClane and Rambo now present, we can look ahead and see that Cold War is possibly gearing up for some classic maps to return.

It seems that Hijacked is being prepared for Season 4 as a big inclusion that will see players scrambling to conquer the massive cruise ship. Also, another as yet unnamed surprise remaster could be joining it as well.

Also, rumors are abound that there will be a new “DLC round-based Zombies map coming in Season 4” too. A glimpse of this new Zombies map was possibly shown during the gameplay reveal trailer, which you can find below:

Treyarch went on to post on Twitter on June 11, 2021, a tweet that included an image and a caption stating that the prologue for the next round-based Zombies map starts on June 17, so perhaps it will be released in the Reloaded portion of Season 4 a couple of months from the start of the new season.

Black Ops Cold War Season 4 weapons

Carrying on the usual groove of Season 1 and Season 2, Treyarch’s most recent inventory boost added a few new guns and some extras such as the Baseball Bat and the Ballistic Knife.

At the moment we don’t know too much about what Season 4 is set to include, but it is a curious question given how balanced the meta is right now. Thanks to all the buffs and nerfs delivered by Season 3 Reloaded, you wonder what new weapons will be introduced. We will update this page once we know more.

The Season 4 gameplay trailer released on June 10, 2021, teased the arrival of various weapons for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War that includes the G3 Assault Rifle, Nail Gun, and Desert Eagle Pistol.

Also, check out our ranking of every gun in Black Ops Cold War.

Black Ops Cold War Season 4 game modes

If there’s one thing that players cannot complain in Cold War about it’s the smorgasbord of game modes to plow through. As well as new game modes and limited-time-only playlists, existing ones are even being expanded too.

Outbreak players can now fish for instance – a sentence that most gamers would’ve had thought needed to be said. But again, with the recency of the Reloaded update, Treyarch is keeping tight-lipped about any big potential game modes for Season 4 of Cold War.

Once more information starts to filter through we’ll be updating this page to keep you up-to-date about Black Ops Cold War Season 4.

Black Ops Cold War Season 4 trailer possibly teases new Zombies map

The Black Ops Cold War Season 4 trailer had plenty of exciting footage with one clip possibly giving players the first look at a new Zombies map.

New Black Ops Cold War Season 4 Zombies Map

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War players were treated to some exciting teases in the Season 4 gameplay trailer, with one of them possibly showing the Zombies community the first look at a new map.

Season 3 made some waves in the world of Black Ops Cold War Zombies, with the largest being the introduction of the first main Easter Egg quest for the Outbreak game mode.

This Outbreak Easter Egg quest continued the main story of Black Ops Cold War zombies, which Treyarch has said will ultimately be tied to the next round-based Zombies map for the first-person shooter.

Not much information has been provided for this new Zombies map, with leaks suggesting it could be based in Berlin and that it will be arriving in Season 4.

New Black Ops Cold War Season 4 Zombies Map

While Treyarch has not yet officially announced a Berlin map or that it will be coming in Season 4, the recently released Season 4 gameplay trailer for Cold War possibly gave the Zombies community a first glimpse of a new map.

The part of the Season 4 gameplay trailer in question occurs at the very end of the video. First, a few seconds are shown of Zombies walking down a subway tunnel with then what appears to be a subway on fire making its way towards running all of the Zombies over.

Players will have to wait until June 14 for Activision and Treyarch to officially reveal the content roadmap for Black Ops Cold War Season 4 and if a new Zombies map is included on this plan for the new period of content.

However, this clip from the gameplay trailer does give hope to players that they will be hearing of a brand new Zombies map they will be able to experience at some point in Season 4, even if it might come in the Reloaded portion of the season in a couple of months.

Treyarch went on to post an image on Twitter stating that the “prologue to our next round-based Zombies map begins on June 17.” This looks to confirm that the new map may not arrive at the start of Season 4 but will be coming later on in the season or Season 5.
